Back in the game

So after 5 weeks of consistent training, I raced today for the first time since April (Francis Marion Dirt Dash 1/2 Marathon - 1:49:26). That was 6 months of nothing more than 2 or 3 miles at a time, maybe once or twice a week. Over the last month I have already logged 350+ miles and have been feeling very strong again.
My training plan over the next 10 months puts me with over 4200 miles of training and racing as I lead into my next goal of racing and going after the course record at the Viaduct Ultra Marathon (Current record 73:48 200 miles)

Between now and next July I am going to begin recording highlights of my training and racing with a video blog of the journey.  

Enjoy! See you on the trail!


  1. I love the vlog and it's super cool to hear you chatting after following you via twitter and instagram.

    I laughed a lot when you started talking about the trails and hn asked the chickens if they wanted to go for a run. I really wish I had so many trails in my backyard.

    I also quite enjoy that you said "just a half marathon".

    Anyways this is great stuff, I can't wait to follow you here too!

  2. Thanks Hollie! It's funny because the chicken will follow me... Just stay home and make eggs! Maybe a few less Ummms, next time ;-) see you on the trail!
