You’ll Want Yurbuds

Listen up, any of you that run with headphones. I had reached such a level of frustration with my standard headphones that I had basically given up on listening to music while training. The headphones never stayed put in my ears, proving to be more of an annoyance than an appealing accessory to my workouts. […]

A Baby Bump in the Road

Pregnancy doesn’t mean a nine-month hiatus from running. Here’s how to run safely while expecting. If lounging with your feet up while eating pickles and ice cream isn’t your idea of a dream pregnancy, you’re in luck. As long as you have a doctor’s okay, know the warning signs of over-exertion, carry plenty of water […]

Undie Run Fun!

I’m currently in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii attending the Ironman Triathlon World Championship. One of the most fun and wildly entertaining events during the race week festivities here in Kona is the annual Underpants Run. I wanted to share the press release below to give our readers an interesting way to join in the fun from afar […]

Place and Time

I love speed. I love running hard and fast intervals where I feel I’m pushing myself to my absolute limit. And I love feeling that limit expand when I’m able to dedicate myself to disciplined running over several months on end. I love the tangible feedback of measured improvement. Of course I also adore willy-nilly […]

Oooh… Oogavé!

I tend to stay away from most sodas, but every so often I can’t resist the sugary sweet taste of a fizzy treat. Imagine my surprise – and my taste buds’ delight – when I sampled all natural Oogavé sodas at a recent race expo. Oogavé sodas are certified organic and free of chemicals or […]

Without Limits

A Life Without Limits, the autobiography of Ironman World Champion and world record holder Chrissie Wellington, promises to be an inspirational yet accessible read. Wellington, a self-proclaimed “regular person”, was never particularly talented at sport as a child. She was, however, supremely skilled in drive and ambition, qualities that she first focused on her studies […]

A Truly Positive Impact

For those of us who run, we know what a truly positive impact running can have on our lives. Some of the changes are smaller, and some of them… well, they’re life altering! A few weeks ago, we asked our Run Club members to send us stories of how running has been a positive influence […]

Wowza!

Male or female, it’s always impressive and inspirational to witness an athlete accomplish an amazing feat. Kenyan runner Patrick Makau did exactly that this morning with his new marathon world record, cruising through the Berlin Marathon in a blistering 2:03:38. That’s about a 4:43 mile pace, in case you were wondering! Also of note, the […]

Tasty C!

The new Clif C bar from Clif Bar and Company is a doubly delicious double layered delight made from just a few simple ingredients: fruit, nuts and sea salt. The lightly baked bars are anything but simple in taste, however, with a sprinkling of sea salt bringing the blend of wholesome fruit and nut flavors to […]
