There is one aspect to racing guaranteed to bring me to an absolute Tazmanian devil fever-pitch full-on boil. Cheating. In particular, course cutting. My husband chuckled over his coffee because I was in full Taz mode, talking aloud to the New York Times spread before me. (Clearly, he doesn’t mind this early morning behavior or we wouldn’t… Continue reading Would You Commit an Endurance Racer’s Ultimate Sin?
This is not the post I had planned for today, but sometimes topics come up at the right time to address them. For me, it’s the difficult subject of a friend’s accident. Life can change in an instant.

I think I need some serious guidance and help with my hamstring recovery, especially since I… Continue reading Road Running in the Future
Today has been a day of hopping from one thing to another, wrapping up stuff that needed to get done before I head out of town. This week has been weird; having the middle child home makes it feel like summer, and the youngest has had finals, which means a different and erratic schedule. Hubby… Continue reading Suitcase Shuffle
