Army Ten-Miler Race Playlist

Army Ten-Miler Race Playlist

So story time after a two-month hiatus from posting. Sorry about that. Anyway, I created the *perfect* Spotify playlist (located at the bottom of this post!) for the Army Ten-Miler Race in D.C. last October. And guess what? The race “rules” online said headphones and electronic listening devices weren’t allowed on the course. Say whhhaaaat? Run 10 miles without any music?!?! Inside I was like “Well sh** sh** sh**. I don’t know how well I’ll run it now…” I had…

Running, Surprising People, and Surprising Yourself

I came across this quote a few months ago, and it really stuck with me.

Stadium HIIT Workout

Alternative names I considered for this workout . . . “90 Aisles of Pain” and “Death by Intervals.” This workout is consistently difficult. It never gets easier. You just learn what your pain threshold is before your legs completely give up and you’re gasping for air. But just like anything else, the more you run stadiums, the better you become at it. Then it’s time to raise the stakes. In Florida, add in 93-degree weather plus 90 percent humidity, and…
