After taking my first trip out to Colorado in 2013 and getting to experience the mountains, things changed for me. I found myself craving experiences that really put things into perspective and challenge me to think beyond the borders of my day-to-day life. The mountains are magical. Having a bad day? Sit yourself at the… Continue reading Life Above 14,000ft.
I think I am finally realizing why the mountains will never get "old" for me.

This past weekend I finished my last long run (yay!) and I am currently in the taper zone!… Continue reading Digging Deep
Well here we are! Tomorrow will be exactly 30 days until race day! Every time I am training for a marathon it is always at this point where I struggle.
