Personal:

I am originally from Knoxville, TN and moved to SLC with Jake in 2010. I started racing in 2011 and had some great success before a major injury hit me in July 2012. I had athletic pubalgia surgery in May 2013...then again in Sept 2014 and am still trying to get back to my old self. Although running is my true passion, I love doing pretty much anything active outdoors - backcountry skiing, backpacking, biking, etc. 

I've been running for the Saucony Team since 2011. I enjoy representing the brand and really do believe they make the best shoes :)

I work as a Quality Engineer for BD Medical in Sandy.

AM - 30 min of pool running then skiing at Park City! It was SO COLD. Jake and I skied for an hour and a half and then had to go in. I got terribly nauseous for about 15 minutes because my hands and feet got so frozen (does this happen to anyone else?). Lesson learned, we stuck to only a few runs before warming up each time. Jake and I just don't have enough insulation for winter in-bounds skiing. We had fun though!

AM - 30 minutes on the recumbent bike. Psoas feels like it's going to explode, glute muscle painful, and now at my lowest weight since I was in middle school. Got my hopes up too soon.

AM - Very uncomfortable all yesterday and this morning - significant pain in right groin area and glute with a lot of radiating pain. Going to the doctor again this afternoon. What's most frustrating about this is that I felt fine, even good, while we were skiing. I have no idea what my limits are because the pain doesn't show up until 3-4 hours later and into the following days.

I found a place close to where I live and work - Performance Rehab Clinic - that just got an Alter-G Treadmill. It's very pricey to use ($1/min for 30 min, 10 punch pass $200, $100/month + buy own shorts) but I might fork over the money if it can get me healthy quicker/more safely. 

PM - 2.2 miles on the treadmill. Then 2.6 miles after my doctors appt got cancelled.

AM - I convinced Amiee to run in the snow with me before our pool running, so we went to the park close to the gym for 15 minutes or so. followed by pool running for maybe 20-30 minutes. 

We made a big brunch and had the long run crew + Allie and James over. Fun times!

PM - 2.2 miles with Jake at the horsepark with all the pups and the snow.
