My Life Over The Past Week ?>

My Life Over The Past Week

  Because I know you’re all wondering what I’ve been up to for the past week, here are some pictures to bring you up to speed. Warning: If you don’t like mice, scroll down past this next picture. I have two cats, one of which is an AVID hunter who loves to show me his trophies, so I see my fair share of mice. However, it’s rare that I see them while they’re still living, and I have never found…

Our First Overnight Trip with Back-to-Back Double-Digit Mileage ?>

Our First Overnight Trip with Back-to-Back Double-Digit Mileage

  When you get to the point in your running pursuit where one day of double-digit mileage isn’t enough, you have two choices: you can either check yourself into the nearest rehab facility OR you can do back-to-back long runs! Peter and I did back-to-back’s for awhile when we were training for our first 50-miler 3 years ago, but after that race I swore off them, and the years passed happily without the slightest desire to attempt such insanity ever…

Ironman 70.3 World Championships at Mont Tremblant

Labor Day Weekend Run in Camden Hills State Park

  Peter and I spent the holiday weekend on the coast of Maine with Peter’s family and my brother, Lucky. (Fortunately for us, Lucky’s still waiting for his VISA for Saudi Arabia/pursuing alternative job opportunities here in the U.S., so we get to spend lots of time with him! ) We love running in new places whenever we travel, so this time we headed to Camden Hills State Park to run the mountains overlooking the ocean. I was originally hoping…

Blog Changes ?>

Blog Changes

  Do you like the new look? We’re making some changes over here at Running with the Hayneses, and the new layout is a reflection of that. We started RWH as a family pursuit two years ago, but over the years our interests have changed, and at this point only Hannah and I write on a regular basis. Lately I’ve found my focus as a blogger shifting, and since Hannah already has a personal blog, Stedge Racing, we’ve decided to simplify…

Tri Talk Tuesday: Must-have Gear! ?>

Tri Talk Tuesday: Must-have Gear!

  It’s Tuesday! This week, I’m linking up with Courtney, and Cynthia to talk about our favorite must-have gear! To me, I feel like every piece of my gear is essential for my training and racing-that’s why I bought it. However, there are a few items that are ABSOLUTELY essential to me, and I feel like I couldn’t train as effectively without them. Here are my favorite must-have items! This is my multi-sport GPS watch. Before I purchased it, I didn’t know what I was…
