Why I Can’t KonMari My Race Medals

Easy Runs Make Hard Running Easier
I didn’t plan for the run to suck. But it did. I was low on motivation—a common side effect of winter in Oregon, where it pretty much drizzles for seven months straight. And this late afternoon 5-miler was looking to be yet another chilly, puddle-jum

Running Didn’t Save My Life, But Here’s Why It’s Still a Miracle
People think depression is just feeling sad, but that’s not it at all. Depression makes you feel nothing. And in late 2018, after years of battling the disease, feeling nothing replaced my love for running. So my brand new pair of silver and blue Asi

The Case For Spikes
