Running – Of sagebrush and cactus

For the third time this Spring, I covered 13.1 miles running in preparation for my first official half marathon on June 13 in West Yellowstone. Sure, you’re supposed to build up to the race day distance, but I find it much more satisfying to be prepared for what lies ahead. Besides, training led me to […]

It’s Alright To Hate Hills | Don’t Fence Me In 12k Trail Run

It’s alright to hate hills… as long as you don’t give up! Also, if it’s your first race at a new distance, you automatically get a new PR, right?!?
