I really enjoy writing my Off Course blogs, and I truly hope that my readers are enjoying reading them. but between thinking up ideas, writing a big long piece, evaluating and editing it, and then making an accompanying video, it’s a lot of work. The consequence is that I can’t churn them out as frequently as I’d like and new ideas for blogs have started a to accumulate in the notes app on my phone. I am still going to be releasing longer Off Course pieces and the videos that accompany them, but in between those projects I am going to be writing and releasing shorter pieces called Off Course Minis every Monday. They’re going to be short pieces about shit that I thought or heard or read and felt like were worth sharing. I’ll also add a quick update about how training has been going and what races I’ve got coming up or just ran. I hope you enjoy, and if you want to reach out, you can leave a comment under any of my posts or slide into my DMs on Instagram or Twitter.
Quick update: Last week, I ran the Payton Jordan 10k at Stanford. I came in 10th in 28:13, which is definitely not what I was hoping to do. I certainly wanted to run quite a bit faster as my PR is 28:00 and I feel like I am in at least that good of shape, I just had a bad day, that happens sometimes. Coming off this race, my attention turns to recovering and preparing for the US 25K championships, which are next Saturday, 5/12, in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Additionally, last week was Cinco De Mayo, so the weekend turned around pretty damn fast!
Ok, on to the piece. Enjoy!
