  • 6 Ways to Workout WITH the Heat (not 'BEAT the Heat’)

    Welp, we’re in the sludge of summer - when you head outside and are met with a wall of heat and humidity. What does that mean for your workout? It means all of us athletes need to learn to workout WITH the heat. So instead of avoiding it (or trying to “beat the heat” – spoiler alert: you can’t! ), start to think about how your body can adapt to it instead. Here are a few tips to help you tackle your Summer Heat Monster: 1. Pick your gear. Wear light colored, loose-fitting clothing that wicks sweat. Technical gear allows moisture to pass through and evaporate, keeping you cooler for longer. To protect your skin and eyes from the sun, wear a hat/visor, ....

    "The goal has to be greater than the fear, the fear of the unknown, of the pain, of the distance, the goal has to win over the fear." With the Ice Age 50 Mile under my belt, I had gained confidence and knowledge, but was still humbled by how tough I knew this course was going to be. I had been dreaming about this race for two years.Ever since I heard Robyn (the owner of Edge where I coach) talk about her experience of racing Silver Rush in 2016, it stuck with me…I remember thinking this sounds amazing (and awful)!!!I want to do this one day!!!

  • Balancing a Busy Life by Coach Laura

    Balancing a Busy Life by Coach Laura

    Let me first say that I find it curious and intriguing that I ended up writing on this topic. I do not feel I am experienced in “ balancing a busy life,” nor do I feel I’m particularly qualified to write about such a matter. In fact, I’ve mastered “busy life,” but the balance piece I’m still working on. However, I do think I’ve made some progress this past year. In fact, yes, year one with a baby forces you to rethink, reevaluate, and renegotiate your priorities in a whole new way. You have no choice but to focus on the basics in life, namely survival. So, I had to let a lot of other things go those first six months or so of my son’s ....
