“The Human Body is Capable of Amazing Physical Deeds.”

The Human Machine

Have you ever stopped to think about how amazing the human machine actually is?

Never mind all of the truly incredible stuff our bodies do on a daily basis without us consciously thinking about the task for one second (breathing, heart beating, cellular repair, digestion, hormone secretion, etc.), how about the things that we actually do think about?

  • Want to run a faster marathon time? Put in the training and your body will respond accordingly.
  • Want to PR in the 5k? Same thing. Your body will respond and adapt to the demands that you put on it.

For all of the abuse we put our bodies through (fast food, alcohol, sun exposure, sedentary jobs, etc), if you think about it our bodies are incredibly resilient. If we treated our cars or computers the same way we treat our bodies, there is no way they’d last more than a few months.

Yet the human machine takes all of our abuse and runs smoothly for decades.

It is true, the human body IS capable of amazing physical deeds.

Get Rid of Plantar Fasciitis Forever!

Plantar fasciitis is one of those ailments that too many runners have to deal with on way too regular of a basis.

And it’s a shame, because in almost every case, plantar fasciitis is completely preventable.

As I continue to narrow my scope when it comes to the content I create, my ideal coaching clients, and the reason that I do what I do, it always comes back to helping runners avoid running injuries in their training and racing.

Especially the more common injuries, like plantar fasciitis.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, and thanks for ALL that you do!

And to those of you that are struggling today, which is a pain Rebekah and I have known all to well, just know that you aren’t alone. I know there is nothing I can say that will make today any easier, but this blog post dedicated To Those Waiting and to Those Mourning on Mother’s Day is beautiful and heart breaking all at the same time, and is well worth the few minutes it’ll take to read.

Fair warning, however, if you read through the comments you’d better have some tissues ready.

Happy Easter!
