Balanced running extends beyond sheer physical strength. It’s the art of harmonizing different aspects within running. For my mathematical enthusiasts, this all began with American exercise physiologist Jack Tupper Daniels and his formula to V.O2 max training. Jack’s findings tell us a 17:30 5k is the equivalent fitness to a 5:06 mile, along with various [...]

In the latest news, the U.S. Supreme Court decided against President Biden's plan to forgive student loans. A three-year pause on loan repayments is about to end, and unfortunately, there are no more extensions due to a law passed by Congress on June 2nd. But what does this mean for your wallet?

There’s a ton of advice for women regarding their family’s finances, but what about financial independency for my fellow single ladies? It is no secret that many are staying independent longer, marrying later, or simply choosing to not get married at all. Without a dual income, navigating your long term finances may seem unsettling, [...]

Managing the Marathon: Stages of the Financial Race

By |2023-06-02T06:50:56-05:00June 2nd, 2023|Managing the Marathon, The Blog @JGUA|

Often times I hear many associate running a marathon as two races: the first half with your head and the second half with your heart. However, in my practice, races are made up of many parts regardless of the distance. While no race is the same, some you may find a rhythm immediately. Others, [...]

“It’s never too late to be what you might have been.” Whether its life, money, or running, we’ve all been there.

It comes as no surprise that managing the marathon is about playing the long game.

Managing the Marathon: Protecting Yourself On and Off the Course

By |2023-03-24T09:48:06-05:00March 24th, 2023|Managing the Marathon, The Blog @JGUA|

One thing’s for certain, there’s no cheating in marathon training. The 5am wakeups, grueling mileage, and painful interval workouts all feel worth it when the taper hits and the light is shining at the end of the tunnel. For me, a mix of medium volume and high intensity consisting of double days, 60 mile weeks, [...]

Strategically planning ahead goes a long way with running and finances. Time after time, Boston University’s David Hemery Indoor Invitational was always by far my favorite meet to go to in the long track season. With over 5,000 entries, the two day event is where many special BU magic moments happen for runners from [...]

Goal setting is a vital component when it comes to running and finances. Defining what that goal entails gives us a starting line and the motivational drive to reach destinations big and small. I would always encourage my college teammates and the athletes I’ve coached to think long term. It’s not one week, not one [...]
