Training for a race is a grueling process, especially when mileage begins to surpass single digits.
Whether your race day begins with a 4AM car ride or with a leisurely hotel breakfast, it’s important to stay in tip-top shape while you travel in order to avoid race-day woes.
Whether the runner in your life is a marathoner, a 5K-er, or someone who simply runs for fun, this guide has something for everyone.
When winter arrives, running poses more challenges as temperatures dip below 20 degrees and instead creep closer to the single digits. For distance runners, the treadmill (AKA the dreadmill) isn’t the most appealing option. If you’re crazy enough (like me!) to brave the elements, here are some tips for road warriors to stay safe and warm!
A couple of questions I get asked all the time are: “How did you get into running?”, and “How can you run so far?” While I wish there was some incredibly inspiring story behind it, the truth is that it was a completely random decision.
Does running a 5K seem like a pipe dream to you? Maybe your friends are all doing it and you want to get in on the fun, but you’re not sure how to get started. Perhaps running with a crowd isn’t your thing just yet, but the shine and sparkle of a medal is alluring. If you’re on the “should I run a 5K” seesaw, head for neutral ground and consider running a virtual race for the best of both worlds.
