This hardly ever happens, but I had an interesting thought on the bus on the way to work today. People come to roller derby from such a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences – why do we expect everyone on the same team to train the same way? Often, people who’ve been running five miles […]

Remember, back in olden times, when I had these big dreams about being super fit, running every day, and generally being a shining, glowing specimen of health, vigor, and vitality?

How’re we doing? My last goals were to: Run 6x/week 5k in 30 minutes at Shamrock Run 7-minute mile by September Hm. Well, things aren’t going perfectly. The running 6 times a week has fallen by the wayside, as I prepared for a bout, then prepared for travel team tryouts, then felt regrouped from all […]

Okay, internet and real-life running friends: What are your goals? State them here for the public so we can shame you into keeping up. (Partially kidding.) My goals are: Run a 7-minute mile by September Finish the Shamrock Run (5k)  in under 30 minutes Both of these have been kind of goals for a while. In […]
