On Saturday, April 6th, 2024 I ran Revel Mt. Charleston Marathon and qualified for the Boston Marathon! I signed up for this race the day after I found out I wouldn’t be running Boston 2024 with the goal of qualifying for Boston again with a bigger buffer. (Boston Marathon 2024 had a record number of applicants which resulted in one of the biggest buffers of all time, 5:29). I first qualified for the Boston Marathon (after 10 years of setting the goal) at Revel Big Bear Marathon in 2022 and was optimistic that I could shave off more time after significantly improving my fitness over the last ..read more

I’m running Revel Mt. Charleston marathon this weekend. And even though this is my 11th marathon & I am a certified running coach, I still do research the week before to remind myself what I’m supposed to do!

I’ll be answering those questions here. How many days before the race should you carb load (just the day before or night before)? Research shows that carb loading can improve performance by 2-3%! That’s A LOT ..read more

It’s racing season! Are you training for a race right now? Or, are you planning to train for a race this fall? If so, I want to share something that I don’t see talked about often: the power of the “tune up” race. When I first started running, I’d run every race I did pretty much the same – all out! Sometimes I’d run a race and it would feel AWFUL – because I wasn’t actually training for that race, but I kind of expected that I’d just run faster every time anyway. The thing is, when we train correctly, we just train for ONE big race at a time. Not only are we training to peak at a cert ..read more

On Saturday I ran my first ultra marathon!!! The Avalon Benefit 50K and 50 Mile race was an INCREDIBLE race and I highly recommend it for your first ultramarathon. Why I Decided to Run a 50K I have run 10 marathons, qualified for the Boston marathon AND done an Ironman.
