I’m in Runner’s World Magazine! How Did This Happen? Last September I received an email through my blog. My blog– that never happens except for spam. This message was from Karla Walsh, a writer at Runner’s World Magazine saying, We’re working on a piece for early 2018 about individuals who had non-traditional paths to determining … More Am I A Runner?
Happy New Year! Here’s a recap of some of 2017’s notables in no particular order. Races This wasn’t my year when it came to running races.

I’ve spent the past few weeks trying to get up and running again. While it’s been frustrating that I have less endurance and I’m slower than I was a couple of years ago, it feels good to be moving again. One of the toughest things for me is getting the motivation to get out the … More Getting the Runs Back
I tried to spin too many plates and I just couldn’t keep them all going. I’m not mad, though. Should I be? I am a little disappointed in myself but I’m not mad. That’s how life goes sometimes. And I’m in a really hectic season of my life right now. I guess. I do find … More Dropping Plates
Although I went to bed exhilarated by the Olympic Trials and the WeRunSocial meet up, I woke up on race day with mixed feelings.

I usually try to avoid the “s” word during the summer, but it’s been difficult to avoid “school” these past few weeks. Don’t get me … More The “S” Word
So, last week I completed round four of Field Control Therapy. All-in-all, it went well–the detox symptoms weren’t as terrible as they were during the previous rounds. I’m sure that it helped that I spent the majority of Sunday and Monday outdoors away from EMFs. My last two posts highlighted my time and miles at … More FCT Treatment Round 4
Here’s part two of of my day on the trails last weekend. I was doing my FCT treatment so I had to be outdoors all day, avoiding EMFs as much as possible. On Sunday, after running and having brunch with UnitedLA I had a couple of options: I could relax, sit under a tree, and … More Trail Mix Deluxe Part 2: Go Take a Hike!
