It was an absolutely incredible experience and I highly recommend this adventure race to anyone whether they are a runner with many races under their belt or someone just beginning to get into running.       The race is run on the Entabeni Game Reserve in [...]

Coolest. Jacket. Ever.

Just when I thought I had every running jacket or vest I could possibly want Sugoi introduces the Versa. There’s some great features of this jacket. The biggest selling feature is the detchable magnetic sleeves. (The sleeves snap into place and you feel kind of like a transformer.) The sleeves are incredibly easy to take off and put back [...]

First 5km Race

When one of my friends suggested that we run a 5km race as fast as we possibly could (I believe the actual words were “so fast that we are on the verge of vomiting for the entire race”) I thought that sounds like a great idea!! I’ve run four marathons (Nike x2, Nashville Country Music Marathon, and [...]

Amazing Races

One of the things that I loved so much about the [...]

At different points in any run or any race there comes a moment when you need some extra motivation. Something that is going to push you harder or just convince you not to stop moving when all you want to do is call it a day. Maybe it’s the weather, maybe you were out a [...]

Why Yoga? YYoga. Period.

I’ll admit it. A year ago, and for every year prior to that, I was a yoga sceptic. I didn’t get it. I knew there was this craze but I didn’t know what it is all about. And to be honest, I wasn’t really interested in finding out. As I began to plan my training [...]

ShAFF

For those of us who believe in bucket lists, every once in a while something comes along that gets immediately thrown onto the list. Not only that, it becomes a priority and moves somewhere near if not right to the top of the list. This morning I had one of those discoveries. The Sheffield Adventure Film [...]

Sugoi RS Jacket

I’ve become one of those people who gets excited about new athletic gear and advanced technical fabrics. My advocacy for the benefits of compression gear is easily the best example. A couple of weeks ago I picked up Sugoi’s RS Zero jacket. In a year where Sugoi’s Versa jacket is receiving much deserved attention for it’s innovation and design not [...]

Invincible Immunity – Eric Cressey

A couple of weeks ago I got sick for the first time in about 8 years. Now not only did I get sick but I rocked a fever of 38C or approximately 104F. (I had no idea how high that actually was until friends started to react with shocked looks on their faces.) To help put this [...]
