Am I a Certified Running Coach

Am I a Certified Running Coach
No. I’ve no certification to coach running. Such a title is not needed to be a running coach, unlike a dietitian or cosmetologist, for example. Recently a Road Runners Club of America class opened up within driving distance of me, and I became interested. This is likely the most well-known coaching certification available. I did some r [...]

Shoutout to RaceRaves – Race Re...

Shoutout to RaceRaves – Race Review Site
I was deeply impressed by Race Raves just recently, and felt compelled to give them a shout-out. The co-founder, Mike, sent me an email a while after I posted my Fargo Half Marathon review to their website. He thanked me for joining, writing a review of the event at their website, and you could tell he read my race report since I mentioned h [...]

My Sheridan WY Trip

My Sheridan WY Trip
In June of 2016 Desi took students abroad for a service-learning trip to Ecuador. Since I work from home, I took it upon myself to go on a bit of an adventure myself. For the first bit of her trip there were some local running events I wanted to attend. I volunteered at the Dino Run 5k by marking the course, MCing, and running as sweep to pic [...]

Training Log + Goals for Fargo 13.1

Training Log + Goals for Fargo 13.1
Time to taper! Fargo is this Saturday and I’m feeling good. My weight is down, my volume is up, and I’m hoping for a nice half. Here’s my last week of running. Desi and I went to Big Hill for the “10k” and it went well. I ran it about the same as I did last year, but I think I ran a bit easier this time around, [...]

Training Log Week of May 2, 2016
What a super week! First, I’m starting to work with two new athletes for some great marathons later this year. I also had a lady email me today with some questions. I hit 10 hours of running finally again. It took a while to get back up there since the ankle sprain (but all is well). A photo posted by SKORA Running (@skorarunning) on [...]

After three stagnant years…a PR!
I could not have been more happy with yesterday’s run.   After a twisted ankle, one week fully off to let it heal, and a week at half my regular volume and only one good workout I ran the Cobblers For a Cause 5k Run/Walk and Kids 1 mile yesterday morning.   It was possibly my warmest run of the year thus far. The first mile [...]

Training Week of April 11, 2016
A photo posted by SKORA Running (@skorarunning) on Apr 18, 2016 at 10:49am PDT I’m 5 weeks out from the Fargo Half Marathon and I’m just getting back into consistent running from twisting my ankle. And I’m totally cool. I kept active during the break with crosstraining and increased my time spend doing other ancillary [...]
