How To Keep Your Running and Fitness Resolutions Going Strong

Hello Running Friends, It’s the third week of the new year…how are you doing on your ‘Get Fit’ goals?  Studies have shown this is about the time when new runners and gym goers start to waffle on their resolutions, habits and/or routines.  I understand, having gone through the same experience in the past.  I’d set out on Day 1 of a new year with routines that featured either too fuzzy, no real end-goal type of scenarios – ” I’ve got to get to the gym for more cross training this year” .  Or on the flip side, an extreme goal such as, ” I will completely eliminate all sugar and caffeine from my diet starting today.”   What do you think…were either of those ‘goals’ likely to happen?  As you might imagine, I failed with those resolutions along with many others over the years. Can you relate to that experience

New 50-Mile PR at the Beautiful Fall 50m USATF Road National Championships

Last Saturday, I had the great pleasure of joining 670+ runners for the 9th annual Fall 50 in Sturgeon Bay, WI, this year’s USATF 50-Mile Road National Championship . We had an epic day of fast running and smiles, much in thanks to optimal weather, great competition and race organization, and one of the best post-race parties in our sport! I was thrilled to come away with a 7th place finish, a new 50-mile PR (6:11), and my second USATF Masters National title this year. But most of all, I will cherish the charm and embrace of this wonderful slice of Wisconsin community that kept a smile on my face from the moment I walked off the plane.
