Fumbling Towards Endurance

Last Thursday I sat down to write a letter to my friend, Glenn Frick. I knew this would be one of the most difficult letters I would ever write.

    Glenn, I've been thinking about you a lot these last couple weeks. I'm sorry for the pain and discomfort you are feeling. I just wanted to say thank you, though. Thank you for all your kindness, joy, and wisdom. I have learned more about how to live a happy, healthy, and satisfying li...

  • Never a Dull Moment in San Francisco

    Just returned from a great trip out to San Francisco this past weekend to check out the always exciting North Face Endurance Challenge. This year's race might have been as exciting as ever, and every time I go to San Francisco I come away with the feeling that even though I'm not a ci...

    ... When you're busy and having fun. This last couple weeks has been a full on whirlwind for me. Sometimes this can be exhausting, but in this case it's been really energizing and uplifting. Since I last posted here I have launched a small business, begun running most everyday again, ...

  • Happy New Year

    Gosh, it's been a month again now since I last posted. Not sure how I used to post here a dozen or more times a month. I guess when I was running every day; a hundred or more miles a week; 4,000 or so a year, running related blogging was a little more relevant and appealing to me. At ...

    Many readers of this blog (if I still have readers with how little I post lately) probably "know" me exclusively because of my running. The reality is though, that as I came to endurance athletics I was at times as much or more of an endurance mountain biker as I was runner. In 2007 a...

  • Days Getting Shorter

    Wow, it's been nearly two months since I posted anything here. Not sure where the time went. I guess I've had a fair amount of adventures to keep me busy in this time. Went out to Pine to Palm 100 to pace a friend for 30+ miles, Volunteered as an aid station captain at the very exciti...

    Serious Stuff

    I am so sorry you are fighting this. I can totally relate. I am not sure what labs you have had but I was (am) having symptoms of poor recovery, poor performance, brain fog, weight gain, sleepyness, etc. I went to Seattle Performance Medicine and had extensive testing which revealed w...

  • Fumbling Towards Endurance: A Lovely Walk

    akrunning.blogspot.com 02 Oct '12, 9pm

    As the weather turns over to autumn here in Colorado, I've been stuck in pretty much the same holding pattern with my health. The good news is that I'm feeling gradually better and better, but I still have had no luck in pinning down any kind of definitive answer as to what has been a...
