Acceptance

You might say I’ve been a little bit off the map the past couple weeks.  The last time I checked in, I was finishing up the final stages of my marathon training cycle, preparing for the amazing North Olympic Discovery Marathon in hopes of crushing my marathon PR time of 3:59:55.  Fast forward a couple… Read More »

Planning a (Marathon) Plan

Greetings! In addition to maybe writing a post or two once in a while to keep the blog alive, I’ve also been thinking about what training plan I should adopt for my next marathon cycle.  You would think after having done a few 26.2’s I would have a good idea of how this marathon training… Read More »

Monthly Goals Check – August

Monthly Goals Check – August or alternatively “Why the heck is the monthly goals post for August coming out now?!” Well, I actually finished this a couple weeks ago but had it sitting in the drafts folder waiting for the final read-through.  But, this turned into a very sad week for us with the passing of… Read More »

Missoula Marathon Final Thoughts

A few Missoula Marathon Final Thoughts that didn’t quite fit into the race recap – I guess this is like the editors cut bonus content that they used to put on DVDs…do we still use DVDs? I best go ask my son because I’m pretty sure we’re supposed to stream everything and all we need to… Read More »
