Day After The Marathon

We did it!  Meagan and I both completed our first marathons this past Sunday, and since then, we’ve been trying to heal up by staying off our feet, rolling out the sore spots with a foam roller and The Stick, and wearing our recovery socks as much as possible.  For anyone who has completed a marathon (or other particularly difficult … Read More

Well, I never thought I would coach a track team.  Never in a thousand years.  Yet, here I am, up super late trying to put together a workout schedule for the month of April, trying to order spikes and singlets, and thinking what in the world am I doing?!
