Flirting With Heat Exhaustion on Today’s Run

There’s a fine line between being tough about your training and being stupid. I crossed that line today, then continued to run a bit further. I had 8 miles on my schedule, but honestly had not thought to look at the weather report this morning. I was working in my air-conditioned office at the clinic […]

Shirt or No Shirt When Running in Heat?

Shirt or no shirt while running

Last winter I wrote a post on a topic of intense debate among runners: shorts or no shorts over winter running tights? It wound up being one of the most popular posts on this site, and it became clear that we runners have strong opinions about fashion etiquette! Now that the weather has warmed up […]

The 5K Bites Me Back: Humbled By Heat And Hills

Rock-n-Race-Elevation-Profile-2_thumb.png

About a month ago I ran a 5K in which I finished just two seconds short of my PR. To say that I was happy would be an understatement. It was only my second 5K of the year, and it gave me hope that a new PR would soon follow. I had set my eyes […]

Beginner Running Tips: When Does Running Become Fun?

running-for-weight-loss-stories-of-personal-transformation-2

For the past six weeks I’ve been co-coaching a beginner 5K group. The group has been improving steadily – bodies are getting stronger, lungs are not struggling as much, early aches and pains are slowly resolving. They’ve been doing great, and most are right where we want them to be at this point in the […]

Six Things I Learned on a 14 Mile Run This Morning

I ran 14 miles this morning. That’s not a particularly unusual amount for a distance runner, but it was the longest I’ve run since last summer, and today is the warmest day of the year so far in New Hampshire. As always, the first long run in heat each year is cause for some gentle […]

5 Things I Learned From Running A Trail Race Last Weekend

Emerson-School-Trail-Race_thumb.png

It’s been a long time since I’ve run a long trail race. I paced for about 7 miles last year at the Vermont 100 (my runner dropped), but the last trail race longer than a 5K that I ran for myself was the HAT Run 50K back in 2011. I forgot how much fun they […]

A Tale of Two 5K’s: How a Change in Race Approach Led to a Near PR

Sometime last year I decided that it was time to step away from the marathon for awhile and focus on shorter, faster races. I love marathons, but the training cycles had become a grind, and I was tired of focusing all of my effort on only one or two races per year. I have also […]

Setting Running Goals: Shorter and Faster for 2014

SU12KR1066_1_thumb.jpg

For the past several years I’ve been in marathon mode. I don’t know exactly why or how it happened, but I fell into the trap of feeling like I needed to run a marathon (or three) every year. To be honest, ever since qualifying for Boston back in 2011 I haven’t really enjoyed the marathon […]

Thou Shalt Not Laugh at a Fellow Runner

This week a video of a runner wiping out on a snowy street went viral – if you haven’t seen it yet have a look: I couldn’t help but laugh at the irony of the situation. I’ve been lucky so far this winter. Given the cold, we’ve had snow and ice on the sidewalks for […]

Running Should Not Be a Source of Stress: Why I’m Pulling the Plug on My Fall Ultra

I have a hard time backing out of something I’ve decided to do. As far as I can recall, I’ve only once missed a race that I signed up to run. It was the 2011 Manchester Half Marathon, and I opted to skip it because I strained my back a week or so beforehand while […]
