What? No posts?

So I'm sure many of you are wondering "What's up with the blog?" There is a good reason for my lack of quality posts though lately. Not only am I in my big Ironman CDA prep, but I have recently begun writing on a more official basis for Competitor Magazine, and have devoted much more of my writing time to them.

I'm sure you understand, smarter to write for money than for free, if the opportunity is there!

But there is good news! You can read my latest article in the newest issue, June, of Competitor Magazine. The article is titled, "How NOT Running Can Make You Faster".

Check it out, and let me know what you think. I've turned in a few more articles to them, so hopefully soon I can bring back some attention to the blog. In the meantime, there are some great articles in the magazine to check out. Stay tuned!
