“Faster than fast” says Lightening McQueen. How do runners become faster than fast? We run at our best when we train smart, decrease stress, eat for speed, sleep soundly and have optimal blood values.
I encourage all my athletes to get blood work when they are feeling really good while running which gives a helpful reference point for their future running years or when they are not feeling so good. Test, minimally, one time per year and retest any abnormal values after recommendations implemented shortly thereafter.

In other news, I raced the Lewis and Clark Caverns 12k trail race last weekend. An accomplished biathlete and very strong trail racer, 23 year old Corrine Malcom, and I dueled it out to the finish. I finished first by only about 10 sec's. (photo credit: Eileen Robbins). Below I was told to lift the trophy. Mine was heavy - at least 20lbs!
Next race is IceBreaker and Bloomsday. My goal is to run my fastest since having my little boys. I am feeling healthy and so thankful to be running injury free. My 3 boys are so much fun to play with and now that they are easier I have more time to train and run in the mountains where I am most happy. I feel blessed.
I will be updating my website and blog in the next few months so expect some big changes!! My hope is to inspire you somehow. Thank you all for visiting my blog.
