  Long Run We made it back to Cyprus! After an incredibly long and uncomfortable journey spanning three days and 30+ hours, we landed back in Cyprus after being in Hawaii for the last two weeks. Since then, we’ve been fighting jetlag and losing the battle. 4am wake-ups, crashing at 8pm, and just generally feeling …

Appalachian Trail

AT Countdown: 100 DAYS!

December 15 marks exactly 100 days until I begin my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail on March 25, 2018 at Springer Mountain in Georgia. This is significant because my goal is to complete the entire 2200-mile trail in 100 days (or less!), meaning that with each passing minute there is less time remaining until I …

     Long Run Last week, I said that my training was the lightest in a long time – until this week. It’s always tough to get in much scheduled training on vacation, and the weather here in Hawaii has been unseasonably rainy which has canceled several of our planned outings. For example, when we …

     Long Run This was my shortest mileage week in a long time! Partially due to some much-needed recovery from the Larnaca marathon last weekend, and also because we traveled to Hawaii! We left Cyprus on Thursday evening and finally made it to Kona on Friday night – it was a loooong day. Hawaii …

      Long Run This weekend, my long race was the Larnaca Marathon. In an effort to keep my training up, I signed up for this race about a month ago and figured it wouldn’t be a big deal. For the most part, it wasn’t too bad. I knew my “trail legs” wouldn’t give me …

    Long Run This weekend was the last training run before the Larnaca Marathon next weekend. No rain in the morning as I had experienced for the last two weekends, and I decided to head to the linear path not far from home. 20mi felt alright, with only a little bit of pain working …

    Long Run This week I felt like I was starting to get my strength back. After some good runs and weightlifting sessions during the week, I thought I could get away with upping the mileage slightly on the weekend run. I headed out to my old stomping grounds in Klirou  and did a …

I’M HIKING THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL!

I’m very happy to announce that I’ll be hiking the Appalachian Trail, all 2,190 miles of it, starting in March 2018! I will be writing both here and on TheTrek.co about my preparation, gear, and trail life from now until I finish, but it will not be all I write about. I will continue my trailrunning …

    Long Run I didn’t do much of a long run this week – just a 10-miler on Friday and an easy 5-mi hike on Saturday. Still taking it easy since my knees and hip flexors flare up whenever I do more than that – it’s driving me crazy how long this recovery process …
