My Take: The 2019 Cannonball Marathon


Last weekend, at least as this post/episode was released, I hit the road and headed north to Greensboro, NC, for the Cannonball Marathon.

As a reminder, I’m not one for writing a detailed race recap of my performance on race day. So if that’s what you’re looking for…

Sorry

Yeah, I’m not really that sorry.

What I am up for doing is sharing my perspective on the Cannonball Marathon, while it’s still fresh in my mind, as someone that has run the race.

However, here in the real world, perfection is much more of the exception than the rule. Read more

QT: Surviving the Perfect Storm of Running, Life, and Everything In Between


I was part of a really interesting conversation the other day.

As you may know, every Wednesday I jump on a video chat with a couple of great running coaches (Laura Norris and Nora Bird) and we talk shop about our business and try to help each other be more successful.

This week’s discussion centered around something I’d never really thought of before but makes total sense.
