Eight is Great!

Another year, another CIM I suppose! This year is a bit different after all the highs (and all the lows) of Western States I’ve had a hard time getting back into the swing of things. It also probably didn’t help that I took 10 weeks off of running to pursue my trail building ambitions.  But…

The Road to Western States (5/6); May is Moving Month!

Sure January was fun, the hype and excitement of starting a new training cycle. February was a bit of “seriously, I’m doing this again?” and “why can’t we…
