  • Enhanced Games

    I’ve read this single, entire article, and if the premise is going to be consistent, I can’t think of a single positive outcome other than advertising and sponsorship revenue. The gist of the “Enhanced Games” is that it will be much like the Olympics, but athletes can use performance-enhancing drugs that have been approved by…

  • Stride right

    I’m not going to get into the intricacies of last week’s race, but Jenny didn’t get the 3:40 in the Foot Traffic Flat Marathon. Part of me is surprised, but I’m also well-aware that the marathon owes you nothing. Jenny was surprised when she realized the wheels were already coming off at the 5k mark,…

  • I’m a Mike Smith fan boy

    He has such an admirable and amazing communication style. He’s very motivating and inspiring on video when he speaks, and I’d imagine tenfold in person, and I think it’s because it comes from a place of love. I think he has a true love for his athletes and their overall happiness, well-being, aspirations, health, and…

  • Womens 800 meter and 5k Olympic Trials Finals

    So much to spectate and digest in this year’s U.S. Track & Field Olympic Trials. Athing Mu, gold medalist in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in the 800 got tangled up 200 meters into the finals last night and went to the ground. There was a part of me that was hopeful that she’d recover, rally,…

  • How accurate is VO2 max on a Garmin?

    FUN FACT: I’ve done the real deal. This test was done in April 2018. It was a hard series of tests. If I remember correctly, my VO2 Max at the time of this test was 62 mL/kg/min. Now my Garmin fenix 7 Pro says my current VO2 Max is 57 mL/kg/min.

  • Stacks & sums

    27:30 minutes in. “Stacking. It’s no one week. It’s no one workout. It’s the sum.”

  • Spring into a shitshow

    I chat with my friend Rebecca once a month via Zoom. She and I are former colleagues and she’s and amazing and highly decorated ultra trail runner who hails from Boulder. Today she asked me if I’d kept up with the Spring Energy saga. I had no idea what she was talking about. Spring Energy…

  • Jakob Ingebrigtsen’s full send

    I very much respect and admire Jakob Ingebrigtsen. I first learned of Jakob when he and his two older brothers, Filip and Henrik, paced Eliud Kipchoge in the historic, first-ever sub-2 hour marathon in Vienna in 2019. This video still makes my eyes water. I respect and admire Jakob because he’s an extremely talented athlete,…

  • “Run Brand”

    Izac Bauer and I worked together back in April for some portfolio footage through Granada Estates. I had to run 11 miles for this. 😉

  • That time I was fired from my job at a run club

    On January 17, 2024 my supervisor fired me from my job as the Membership and Community Development Manager for Austin Runners Club. I’ve really struggled with the idea of writing all of this down. Part of me wants to just put it all behind me and move on. The other part of me wants to…
