Imposter Syndrome & Running

By | 2018-11-03T19:11:52+00:00 November 3rd, 2018|General Interest, Tips|

  This won't be a long post, I just want to take a brief moment to talk about a feeling that a lot of us probably feel. The feeling that we're not good enough, that we're an outsider, that we don't belong. Imposter Syndrome is when a person lacks confidence in themselves and worries that they'll soon be discovered to be a fraud. This is a feeling that we've all felt and I'm here to tell you that it's totally and completely normal... At least I hope it is. This feeling of not being worthy is something I have experienced often in my work life and feel constantly in my running life, and it's something I feel every time I post on this site. I [...]

We’re Going To Iceland… You Should Come!

By | 2018-10-08T19:46:26+00:00 October 8th, 2018|General Interest, Travel|

Come To Iceland With Us! One of the reasons my partner and I created the Vermont Running Company was to help others get outside and put all of that running fitness to use. So many people run to race, or run to lose weight... But there's so much more you can do! All of the time and energy you've spent building your fitness can be used to cover more ground, see more, and experience more than the average person... And we want to show you what's possible by showing your around Iceland!  Iceland is an incredibly beautiful place and is relatively easy to get to from the East Coast. Our plan is to travel there for a long week to fastpack the Laugavegur and [...]

2018 Salomon Snowcross Relays

By | 2018-01-14T06:09:18+00:00 January 14th, 2018|Events, Race Report|

This past weekend we spent Saturday afternoon helping the Catamount Ultra Events crew at the Salomon Snowcross Relays which were held on the beautiful trails of the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT. Snowcross is a unique combination of nordic skiing and trail running that's popular in Europe, but doesn't exist here in the U.S... Yet! Being a relatively new event format, we really weren't sure what to expect.  Now, the official title for the event is "Salomon Snowcross Relays", and you might assume that as a relay you'd be required to compete with a partner. But... You'd be wrong. Individuals were welcome to compete on their own, and a more appropriate title might be "Snowcross Duathlon" or just "Snowcross".  This particular event had [...]
