RRCA Certified Coach

  One thing that I’m excited about and happy to announce is that as of this summer I became an official RRCA running coach (Road Runners Club of America). Yay! The two-day course was pretty extensive and detailed but was pretty easy to follow. Initially, I’m going to volunteer at a local club to get […]

Madison Mini Marathon RECAP

Hot and humid. […]

Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k RECAP

The wind: another challenging factor today. That wind had some bite to it. And it didn’t help that my legs felt as […]
