Rebecca Hamel Lifestyle Shot - Staring to the Horizon

Training During COVID-19

Running is my haven. It is my time to breathe and reflect. Recently, I have been taking time on runs to appreciate the beauty of the world as it is forced to slow down. Every day when I run I choose to focus on something I am thankful for, and set a good intention for the rest of the day.

THE ROAD TO MOAB

THE ROAD TO MOAB

Truth be told, my “best” is going to be different tomorrow than it is today. And when I say I want to live in the moment and cherish the journey, I mean that I want to be able to honestly say that I am proud of the results I produce not on the perfect day, not on race day, but on every day. No matter what they are.

Ragnar - Team Nathan

Ragnar - Team Nathan

I’m not going to lie, I cried on the loop. I thought about finishing and I cried because I was only 3.5 miles in and in so much pain. I had fallen twice, I had gotten lost and I did not think my legs could take one more uphill switchback. But I kept pushing on.

A look behind the curtain with Cara Baskin at VT100 - 2019. “I can’t help but wonder what else can be discovered in chasing a goal that’s bigger than myself. In taking a trail so rocky and rooty it brings me to the ground, one so windy it hides the peak from view, or one with no certain end.”

Patience, Persistence, & Perseverance

Patience, Persistence, & Perseverance

As an endurance athlete I love to push myself to my limits and yearn for days I collapse into bed exhausted and satisfied from the effort of the day. I'd been missing this feeling recently and found myself falling into a downward spiral, feeling sorry for myself, focusing only on the negative, and I was beginning to resent myself for it. The past week I was able to revisit those feelings of exhaustion and satisfaction, albeit with a slightly different approach.

Pick The Best Hydration Pack

Pick The Best Hydration Pack

Hydration has plagued me since I started running trails. Coming from a track and cross-country background, the idea of carrying something to drink water while running was annoying. Nathan helped me find the Hydration Vest I needed to run longer and have what I need on the go.
