2015 – The Year of the #Runstreak

2015 – The Year of the #Runstreak

Mar 12

Had you told me 2 years ago that I would be writing about running 100 days in a row, I would have called you nuts.  Crazy.  Batshit Crazy.  Run 100 days in a row?  Me?  The guy with the jacked up foot, knees, and back?  The guy who lost the love for the run years ago and has been searching for it ever since?  The guy who is bike obsessed, swim happy, and completely run...

Orthotics – A Catch-22?

Orthotics – A Catch-22?

I’m about a month removed from wearing my boot, and the situation with my right foot injury is a bit of a mixed bag at the moment.  On one hand, the stress fractures seem to have healed.  I’m due for a follow-up appointment to confirm this, but I’m pretty in tune with the aches and pains of this ongoing saga and I think its safe to say that my bones are in good shape.

But unfortunately, this week starts of with some soul crushing news for...
