2017 ’80s 8K race report

October 9th, 2017|

The '80s 8K is the first race in the Austin Distance Challenge, so it generated a pretty big crowd at Gupton Stadium in Cedar Park ahead of Sunday morning's 7:30 start. This was my third [...]

Boxers, Briefs, or La Sportiva?

January 11th, 2017|

  Would you post the following query to Facebook? I am currently in the market for new underpants.  I have always used tighty-whiteys but as I am undertaking new challenges in life, I expect I [...]

What do you do when you can’t run?

December 21st, 2016|

It’s been eleven days since my last run. Last week at school I was short-tempered, easily annoyed, and rolled my eyes a lot. Coincidence? Or just middle-school-before-winter-break? Could go either way. All I know is [...]

BRFs

October 17th, 2016|

I’m not terribly social. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say that I am terrible at being social. Either way, when I first started running, I ran alone. No one in my family or my [...]

Safety: Drive it Home

September 26th, 2016|

I've written before about the dangers we face while running (here, here, and here) and I am going down that road again today. But I won't offer a list of safety tips or point out ways women should [...]

Who Moved My Cheese?

September 16th, 2016|

Who Moved My Cheese? I hate change. I've lived in Austin since the year the 360 bridge was completed. I bought my house right out of college. I started teaching at this school five or six years before my current [...]

An Unlikely Runner

August 25th, 2016|

I'm not an elite runner. In fact, when I first started--fresh off the couch--I worried about finishing last, especially at small races. I felt out of place, like it was totally obvious to everyone that [...]

How To Maintain and Extend the Life of Your Running Shoes

June 6th, 2016|

Let's face it: Running shoes are not cheap. A good, high quality pair of running shoes from a reputable manufacturer will set you back at least $120. Nevertheless, it's a good investment in terms of your health and fitness. But we can make that investment last longer by taking care of your shoes.

Summer’s Almost Here: Time To Start Acclimating

May 24th, 2016|

Welcome to the wonderful world of summer running here in Central Texas. We had a wet, cool winter and spring, but I can guarantee will have another extremely warm summer. Hopefully, not the record-breaking kind we endured a few years ago, but it will be disgustingly hot nonetheless.

Ice, Ice Baby! Freeze Sore or Injured Leg Muscles

May 23rd, 2016|

Just the other morning, I finished the first of what promises to be plenty of hot, humid long runs with my training group and while we were trying to rehydrate, a relative newbie came by and asked me the best to treat a sore calf muscle. He was diligently stretching the calf after every run, followed later by dipping his legs in a Jacuzzi and then placing a heating pad on the calf for another 10 minutes. The calf hadn't been responding at all to his treatment and he was worried.

Are Sports Drinks Worth It This Summer?

May 16th, 2016|

Sports drinks are everywhere. They have become so ubiquitous that you can find a cooler full of sports drinks at just about any gas station, convenience store or grocery store (except Whole Foods) in Central Texas.

Suffering from Common Running Injuries? The Cause Could Be Leg-length Discrepancy

May 10th, 2016|

If you suffer from a baffling series of overuse running injuries, there often is a root cause, other than the usual overtraining, bad shoes, too much racing syndrome. One of the most common conditions that plague runners is something called leg-length discrepancies. In short, the lengths of your legs are unequal. One is longer than the other. For most people, this isn’t necessarily a problem. But for a runner it often is because of the repeated stress that is placed on the lower legs. If one leg is shorter (or longer), the stress is not equally distributed and injuries are often the result.

Air Quality, Big Cities and Running

May 9th, 2016|

If you were paying more attention during science class than I was, you know the air we breathe contains more than just oxygen. There are all sorts of gases in our air—some necessary for life and others that are deadly in certain doses.
