About Me

Hi! My name is Carrie. Welcome to my blog. I am a budding osteopath, a trailrunning aficionado, and a dog whisperer. I believe in eating plants, and only plants. I’m just another one of those vegan endurance weirdos.

My best—and worst—ideas come to me when I am about 5 miles into a run…just at that point at which the delicate boundaries between reality and dreams dissolve, when the endorphins make their inevitable entrance and convince me that my grandiose ideas are a yet-actualized flash of brilliance, and when running no longer becomes about moving my legs, but about using my mind to propel me forward.

This blog is a product of just one of those earth-shattering ideas.

  1. Hey Carrie,
    Merry Xmas to you. I am Greg. I just found your blog, through Facebook, after other triathlete buddies shared your “how to date…” article.
    Like many others, I liked the topic and your analysis.

    But I wanted to write you because I am an osteopath too! I mean, I was…as I quit 2 years ago after 5 years of practice.
    When you say “budding”, does it mean you are still studying or in the first years of practice?
    I am in France now. Where are you?

    In all case, if you wanna chat, my email is gregory@souljob.net or you can find me on Facebook “Gregory jeremy Berge”.
    As you wish Doc ;-)

    Merry Xmas again

  2. Hi Carrie,

    My endurance-junkie wife passed your How to Date article on to me (her endurance-junkie husband). We LOVED it. Spot on.

    I can validate all that you say and found your statements regarding modern-day achievement echoing my own SBR reflection sessions.

    I can also confirm that ALL of our vacations are race/event/training orientated. We did have one trip to DC that was school-related and we did look for a local running race but there wasn’t one. So we plotted and ran our own running tours of DC (FYI…you can’t run through Arlington National Cemetery.)

    Our Xmas stockings are filled with samples of gels, drink tabs/powders, Yanks, KT tape, new water bottles, etc. One of my favorite gifts from last year was a new CamelBak…mainly because I’m the mule when we run trails. (Hey! It’s a man bag with water.)

    Our “dates” are races and those times when our training schedules coincide and we get to run or swim together.

    We did have to set rules about music or video selection when on the bike trainers during the winter – First On or Shortest Session gets choice.

    And yes, you’re right to think that photo of Rinny and McDonnell at IMWC is hot. I also find it cute as hell.

    Take care and thanks for validating our rather unusual existence.
