The Mountain Goat Run is the quintessential Syracuse challenge. Runners are united by the urge to conquer … Read moreWhy I Love the ‘Goat!
Getting closer and closer to Mountain Goat race day! I did a nice slow 6 miles to taper for the run this weekend. Wednesday May 1st marked the kickoff for the 2019 season of the Kitty Hoynes Run Club. This week’s run was an easy and simple run, just following the yellow line along the … Read moreAlmost GOAT Time!!
Wednesday mornings are my favorite mornings. Spent a sunny 6:15 am doing ladder drills, strength exercises and some running with Syracuse’s chapter of the November Project. Normally I get to spend Wednesdays running hills up to the reservoir, but today I got to do run-to-sprint intervals around the football field at Thornden Park.

Cross training is a great way to challenge different … Read moreCross Training!

4° and running! I could not resist running up to Lincoln Park on such a clear morning. Don’t worry! The hill warmed me up just fine. I remember the days when I would go outside running only if the temperature was at a minimum of 20°. With a couple extra layers and some decent footwear, … Read moreRunning and Training (for the Goat!)
