Race Report: 2013 ITR Lake Chabot 30k

I was really excited for the Inside Trail Racing Lake Chabot race this year.  I ran it last year and loved the course, plus this year so many friends were going to be there! Chris and I made the easy drive over to Lake Chabot and met up with a bunch of friends before the […]

Wednesday I turned 50k years old.  Normally I don’t refer to my age in kilometers, but this year it seems appropriate.  To kick off the year of the 50k, I took a vacation day from work and headed to Marin with Chris to show him around Muir Woods and Mt. Tam.  It was another incredibly […]

Winter Break

I absolutely love this time of year in the East Bay.  All of a sudden you take a second to stop and look around, and the hills have turned a florescent shade of green and the dirt has changed to a dark shade of brown.  It may be sticky, slippery and muddy at times, but […]

I have a lot of runs and training to catch up on, but I just have to sit down and write this race report while it’s very fresh in my head. When I made my training plan for The North Face 50M, I was able to rely a lot on things I learned from training […]

To The Top, Again

Back in February, I took my friend Kerry to the top of Mt. Diablo as part of her Bay Area Bucket list.  I hadn’t been back to the summit since that day, mostly because I was training for AR50, then recovering from it.  It’s a pretty tough run, so I never wanted to risk being […]

Anniversary Run

I have so many blog posts to catch up on now that the blog appears to be back in order. But first, I have to interrupt those posts because today, August 3rd, is a special day in my little world. Four years ago on August 3rd, I crossed the finish line of my very first […]

Scenes From the Trails

I haven’t done a whole lot of updating about each specific run in a while since they all have mostly been short and sweet injury recovery runs and aren’t very exciting.  But there have been a few great trail runs thrown in the mix that I have to share with you guys, because obviously these […]

Six Weeks Later

Saturday I decided to take my leg out and give it a little test run on the trails.  It had been far too long since I had dirt underneath my running shoes, so although I was really nervous for this run, I was really excited for it too. I dusted off my trail running shoes […]
