I’ve been OBSESSED with beets lately. I feel like they are way underrated as far as “super foods” go. If you are a runner or workout, beets should be your new BFF. I’m currently ramping up for my next ultramarathon in December (a 50 miler in Florida) so I’ve been eating or drinking beets just about everydayRead More
I always feel like the couple days after a race I’m pretty brain dead. To be honest, I’m still not there a hundred percent but I wanted to write a recap ASAP so here we go.Read More
Man oh man, October 6th is coming up soon. I signed up for the Tesla Hertz 50k a week or two ago after going back and forth between a million races. Not really a million, more like 3, but anyways…Read More
Oh hey guys!
Just getting back in the swing of things after vacation and starting my training for my upcoming fall races (and beyond!)
My "A" race for 2018 is the Daytona 50. It was my first successful 50 mile finish. I'm looking to beat my 2016 time, which as long as I don't fall, shouldn't be a problem.
So summer is finally here and I AM SO EXCITED. I love running in the heat. There's nothing better then feeling the sun and not have to spend 15 minutes looking for your other glove.

So it’s no secret that I’ve been not running for a while now. What started as some tightness in my quad turned it a some major issues. Basically my whole body is outta whack so I’ve been spending some major time (and money) on physical therapy getting me back on trackRead More
One of the reasons I signed up for the Leona Divide 50/50 was to have an excuse to travel to Los Angeles. I'll be honest, I've never had a real desire to travel to LA. I don't know why, but when planning a vacation it just wasn't ever on the table.Read More
I'm not gonna bullshit you. This race wrecked me.Read More
After this Sunday's 25 mile training run, I felt like garbage. I've actually felt like trash ever since running the OSR30 the previous week. I mean, I know why. Leading up to the OSR30 I was on top of my recovery: foam rolling overnight, doing my stretches, epsom salt baths, and compression all the time.Read More
Every time I talk to my dad he asks me "How are your knees and are you getting enough protein?". I love my dad but these are the two questions I'm asked constantly due to being a plant based ultrarunner. (BTW, my knees are fine)Read More
