Motivation to Push Baby Paula Fast

Here’s the story behind my recent 1:22:57 Half Marathon (7th place female finisher) at Rock ‘n’ Roll Chicago. Currently that is the World’s fastest time a WOMAN has ever run pushing their kid (or someone else’s) for that distance. Once I can gather all the evidence, I will submit my claim to Guinness. This story […]

Steeplechase Dreams and Jumping at an Opportunity

My blogging has been a little slim the past few months – but I’m back (if you ever miss out just follow my Instagramย -I update just about daily). This is basically a personal journal I’m willing to share, so no offense taken if you have zero interest to read a book on my recent training […]

My Resurgence Back to My A Game

2014 Club XC Nationals for me ended up being all I could hope/dream for. For how terrible my body handled the transition from Portland to Phoenix, where just recently a good 3 weeks of my running was toilet bowl quality, I ROCKED it! ย No I didn’t win, or come in top 25, but I did […]

It’s fall which means my favorite season is here. As expressed by previous blog posts I am extremely passionate about cross country!! My ultimate running goal before I exit my prime of racing is making a world team and wearing USA. I realize that is a pretty “out there” for a goal and sound ridiculous […]

Time to Get Tough

The Guy from the Band

Aaron Reed is “the guy from the band” in which Alan had 2 recent run-ins with. Back tracking to the early spring of 2013, Alan and the Schumacher crew, now Bowerman Track Club, were in Mammoth Lakes (Lopez Lomong, Shalane Flanagan, Chris Derrick, Evan Jager, Andrew Bumbalough, Elliot Heath). The group was getting ready to […]
