The Run: Rust-Buster

(01/20/23 6:05am)

On Saturday morning, my alarm sounded at 5:30 a.m. to signal the beginning of a long day of competition. I hopped in the shower quickly, popped some bread in the toaster, grabbed my bags and headed out. Stepping over the forgotten Domino's pizza that my housemate had presumably ordered late the night before — a common occurrence after a Friday night out at Dartmouth — I walked through the light snow to the bus. My team was set to travel down to the new track at New Balance in Boston to compete in the Suffolk Icebreaker Invitational. This was the first race of the season for many of us, so the main purpose was to reintroduce ourselves to competition and eliminate any rustiness we had accumulated during the off-season —  something we call a “rust-buster.”


The Run: A Foreign Route

(01/09/23 6:00am)

This winter break, I had the opportunity to embark on a trip to South Africa with the Rockefeller Center for Public Policy. The purpose of this two week trip was to study racial reconciliation policy post-apartheid, which included daily meetings with experts in the policy, business, education or nonprofit sectors, speaking with locals about their experiences, immersing ourselves in the culture and ultimately producing a memo with policy recommendations. 


The Run: One Clap on Three

(10/10/22 5:00am)

Most collegiate athletes have two coaches throughout their athletic career — their high school coach and their college coach. This presents a challenge when it comes to transitioning from one coach to another. Between different coaching styles, philosophies and workouts, it takes some time for athletes to adapt to a new coaching environment. Often, athletes who excelled under a previous coach struggle to find success under a new one, or even end up injured following unfamiliar training. And while most athletes only have to undergo this transition once in their lives, I have had to adapt to five different coaches in my just-over-two years at Dartmouth. 


The Run: The 24 Hour Rule

(10/03/22 5:00am)

If you were to ask my mom how many times after a race she’s seen me happy, the answer would be somewhere in the single digits. After most races — even the good ones — I’m usually frustrated about something bad that happened in the race. Whether it’s that I started too fast, too slow, lost focus or made poor decisions, I often fixate on the bad things immediately after. This is how lots of runners tend to feel post-race, even if a race is a personal best. 


The Run: Sophomore Summer, too close to the sun?

(09/19/22 6:05am)

As varsity long distance runners, we are always in season. Cross country starts in August before classes, indoor lasts through winterim and outdoor races continue into and after spring break.At the end of the outdoor season, however, our next race isn’t for another three months. Though this may seem like it would be an “off-season” for distance runners, this is the period in which we build base fitness and increase our mileage, making it into its own season.
