Dances With Dirt Half Marathon

  On Saturday I ran Dances With Dirt, my first trail half marathon. I’ve never been to Devil’s Lake State Park, therefore I had no idea what to expect, other than that there were going to be some steep hills. I’ve been meaning to run this race for a few years now and it was […]

It’s been a rainy week so far — welcome to Spring everyone! The shoulder I’ve been nursing my shoulder, working on the back muscles by weight training, and avoiding push-ups like the plague.

Trailbreaker Half Marathon recap

I might go for a run on Saturday

I haven’t been running too much since January, and before that I wasn’t seriously watching my miles since I trained for Tyranena in November. That a said, I’m thinking about running the Trailbreaker Half Marathon on Saturday with zero pressure. I don’t even know how I’ll do, other than, of course, I’ll finish it. I […]
