Life in the Fast Lane A good friend of mine and former elite training partner Danny G, an excellent California High School track & XC coach described the environment of track as 'Carnegie Hall' ~ elite, high line and precise and road training and racing as Rock n Roll ~ I most definitely subscribe to this mindset. Track is the perfect environment to train students of all ages, to help them develop their craft in all facets from technical running form, to pacing precision to u

Life in the Fast Lane Racing is more than just stepping to the line !! Racing is more than just the sum of the parts of training….
I believe we can draw 25-35% more out of ourselves on race day than we can with any training session. How do we explain that? Some of that % is simple enough, rest, fueling, adrenaline etc but a great deal of it is the unknown and the unexplainable… it just is what it is !
However more and more I see the pressure of people attaching their self e
Life in the Fast Lane I stepped on the starting line for the first time in exactly 1 year on November 26th, 2017. The Navesink Challenge is a 15k that starts right across the street from my parents house (so convenient). I won the race last year and soon after went into a downward spiral of not feeling well, which, if you are just tuning in you can read about in my first blogs. I went in prepared, knowing the course like the back of my hand and having done a couple of tempos
Life in the Fast Lane Good day and welcome to the Life in the Fast Lane blog at www.runtallruneasy.com I apologize as it has been an unusually long time since I have 'put pen to paper' in my blog but here we are today and I trust all is well with you in your corner of this beautiful globe...I am just coming out of my busiest time of the year as a coach so please forgive me ! I am honored in addition to coaching my worldwide Run Tall, Run Easy athletes but to also be the Head
Life in the Fast Lane ! Don't get me wrong, beach cruisers are fun, they are great, they are just not completely efficient or fast ! I should definitely know as we live within close proximity to the beach, always have and we always own them.. But they are built for comfort not speed. Clearly not a bike going to be used by the Professional riders of the Tour De France.. those bikes have many many gears to allow for changing conditions, elements both created by their human opp
Life in the Fast Lane ~ I love to run roads, I do, I love hitting the track but I also love to hit the trails and the country roads...the trails provide fabulous rich air quality and of course shade to help with those summer scorcher days...of course one has to be careful of poison ivy if one is allergic and especially careful of ticks in the summer time but you can assist here by wearing a three quarter tight and 3/4 length sleeved tech shirt.. Make sure you know where you a
Life in the Fast lane ! Today's daily musings of a professional running coach over a nice hot cuppa java are related to my reality that the faster or more elite the runner the more intrinsic they are in their mental and physical approach to their training and racing. As an example if we were to sit in the bleachers at the end of a major marathon adjacent to the finish line such as in New York we would notice the considerable difference in the amount of technology (gadgets) w
