I was able to draw inspiration and food for thought from all three books as I train for running longer distances. Definitely happy to add these to my book list. One key I've … Continue reading 3 inspiring audiobook recommendations for runners
This week provided a few different challenges for running goals. On one hand, my travel was extended due to a snow storm and I had meetings all day that interrupted my training plans. On the other, I signed up for a 50k run in Moab with relatively little training. Both could pose very real challenges … Continue reading First ultra of 2018 – This week in beef, running and travel
