twice-the-guts-double-the-glory: THEY WILL! Those people are fighters. They’re going to get back up and keeping moving forward. They’ll get prosthetic limbs, surgery, etc. They won’t give up. Runners never do.
As a fellow runner, I feel as though someone just...
Today my heart aches for Boston
I’m literally in tears right now. I’m lucky, all of my friends have been confirmed safe, but not everyone can say the same. I wonder why someone would do this on such an amazing day. Why? People have often worked their entire lives for this day. To most runners, it’s the best and most important day of their running careers and something they’ve dreamed about since they...
daddyclay: People run marathons for the simplest and purest reasons. Nobody runs a marathon to get rich or laid or to crush the competition. People run marathons to explore the horizons of themselves. It is a contest with your own will. Marathon a trial and a crucible that everyone that has ever run one has learned from. To bomb that? What are you trying to stop? Who are you trying to kill? I...

Coupon code for HEALTHY energy!
Hey guys, For my upcoming race I have partnered with ENERGYbits. It’s a super healthy energy booster that’s natural and not pumped full of tons of things you can’t pronounce. I don’t know about you, but that’s what I look for when looking at supplements. Anyways, they’ve given me a 15% discount code and told me to hand it out to a few friends. Well not all of...
3 minute catch up!
I’ve been telling myself for weeks that I needed to write more and blog about everything we’re doing right now, so here it finally is! So a good friend of mine and I have finally taken the plunge and decided to create a racing company. We’ve been talking about this for months and we finally have everything up and running, ready to go. We’ve decided to host our first big...

Runners: Tell someone the route you plan to take...
withloveminusthehandles: I can’t express how important this is. You should decide on a route or at least an area before you run. You should tell at least one person close to you this and an estimate of how long you’ll be gone. If something goes wrong (hopefully it never will) someone will know where you went if you’re unable to contact for help. Let’s all be safe, runners.
To sleep or not to sleep...
I’ve been working with a friend on a new project (small company) recently and we’re getting a lot of the details hashed out. Tonight I went to bed at 11:30pm and woke back up suddenly at 2:50am. It’s now 4:30am and I can’t get back to sleep still because I can’t get all these ideas in my head to settle. Suppose it’s time to get up and be productive....

Research question for all athletes and runners
Hey all you runners and athletes, what are your favorite pre and post run/ race foods and drinks? What is a favorite carb loading meal for the night before a big race? What do you consume while you’re running? Do you drink soda after? Juice? Water? I’m doing some research for a project I’m working on and would love your input!!
Back in Action!!
Well, things are finally starting to settle down here at home. Next week at school is finals and then off for Christmas break… thank goodness! SO many things have happened lately so let’s play catch up here for a minute. 1. So, as you all know, I recently directed my first race. The John Bryan 10 miler (9.7miler). Here are some of the folks from my running group that came out to race...
Last night I went out with a running/triathlete friend of mine for drinks. We got to catching up and talking about projects we’re each working on, etc. Anyways, I’m in the process of putting together a pretty gnarly race and have proposed the idea to a company I’ve worked for to get them to sponsor me. Initially they sounded interested/intrigued by the idea but I’m ready to...

Sorry, but no. Now I have a way to pay for school because I can’t just “borrow from parents.” We’re not all that blessed.
