Last week was quite solid, being the first full 7 day period back in training.
One training characteristic I am experimenting with is splitting my easy days into two short runs rather than one single.
While it has only been a week, I’ve quite enjoyed the double days. There are multiple benefits that I’m seeking from this type of [...]
For those who are attempting to become as adept at their sport as possible.
This post is for those like me, who are trying to become the best runner they can.
I wrote this for the people who schedule their days around their training, not the other way around.
I was staring at my bookshelf the other day, and thought to myself, “if I coul [...]
When I first moved to Rapid City during the late summer of 2014, I met a lot of new runners at the group runs.
One of the first questions to always come up is, “What do you do?”
I am both the Social Media Coordinator for SKORA Running and an online running coach. My answer is usually that I coach runners, since it’s simply e [...]
Recently on a forum I got called out for having a 3:19 marathon PR and being a coach.
Now, I actually took no offense from his comment and I don’t think he was being disrespectful. I even sent him a message letting him know, and apologizing for the rude comments from others. No fault to them either, I think they took it more to heart t [...]
Lately I have been trying to change my mindset about things in running that I want vs items that I need.

There is no better way to establish an actual running routine than to have someone putting in the time and effort to design your personal running schedule. I was a big fan of “tr [...]

Desi, a couple friends, and myself went camping near Spearfish on Saturday. I took advantage of us being near [...]
My friend Rick at EngagingMuscles.com made a comment at a blog recently, and I wanted to post it here for you to read and consider.
The original post:
With less than two months to go until the half marathon (eek!) I thought it was about time I invested in some proper running trainers. My Nike IDs have been amazing – they started my running [...]
The Hill Circuit is a great workout for working on your running specific strength.
When you first do this routine, start with an easy few miles as a warm up and only do 1 rep of the above circuit, followed by a cooldown.
Every 2-3 weeks repeat the workout but add another set.This will make you stronger!
You can see below I did the four reps [...]

Wear pattern on shoes has long been held as a way to determine stride characteristics.
