Strava Segment of the Week-NW Arkansas

For this weeks segment we are going to go back to my “home” trails out at Lake Atalanta in Rogers. Its called “Powerline Climb” and it actually runs through three different trails. You start at the bottom of “Groms”, go up through “Controlled Burn” and finish at the highest point of “Backbone”. The segment is…

Womens Altra Neoshell Lone Peak 3.0

I have always been an Altra fan. I love the wide toe box and how they fit my feet. I have multiple styles of their shoes lining my closet. I have road and trail styles. I’ve not come across one of their shoes that I do not like. Today I want to talk about their…

Strava Segment of the Week-NW Arkansas

This weeks segment is one that I have hit up a few times on some of my training runs from work. Its officially called “NWACC NaturPreserve” and is a short little dirt trail (0.4 mile) that goes through the natural area on the NWACC campus in Bentonville. I usually use it as my turn around…

Running…..

I’ve always ran to lose weight, but lately I have come to realize that I don’t need running to lose weight. Primal will do that for me. I need to find new reasons to run. To let the wind blow in my hair. To feel life pulse around me in the wilderness. I want to…

January 17. 2017

Day 4 of sickness. My son decided to share the flu with me. So wonderful! I miss running, but my lungs are full of mucus, so that is a no go. What I have been enjoying the last few days is Yoga with Adrian. I’ve never been into the full yogee zone and the way…

Bandera 100k

The Western States 100 is my dream race and has been for as long as I have been running. I have watched “Unbreakable” countless times and is still my go to when I am getting pumped up about going for a run/race. If you haven’t seen it, “Unbreakable” is a movie that follows 4 men…

Strava Segment of the Week-NW Arkansas

Well I didn’t do a very good job at all during the holidays to keep the Stava segments coming but it is still my plan to add a different one to chase every Friday. Not only is it fun, its a great way to measure your progress. Plus, I guess it gives me an outlet…

January 12. 2017

Big changes in 2017! I have always been a bit of a health nut. I try to eat as cleanly as possible, with whole grains, veggies, fish, and fowel (no cow or pig). I have always carried some extra weight around the middle no matter what I have done. It has made me very consous of…

Highlands Endurance Run

When reading the name of this run you think ” this sounds fun”, and it is. It is also hard, rocky, and covered in leaves. This was my first ultra run, and man did I pick it. If there was one thing I could say, it would be that I grew in my mental strength. So…
