Advice From the Pros

I spent yesterday on a track at the Athletes’ Performance Institute (API) in Los Angeles with some of the world’s fastest athletes. Hosted by Adidas and led by coaches from API, sprinters Allyson Felix (pictured), Veronica Campbell-Brown and Christine Ohuruogu—all medal-winning Olympians and world champions—demonstrated a variety of drills they perform before a track workout. […]

Sporty Jewels

When Denise Relke was sidelined from running due to a broken ankle, she created a running pendant in her silversmithing class. The pendant served as a talisman to ensure that Denise’s ankle would heal and she would be back on her feet again soon, running her favorite trails. Denise wasn’t the only one inspired by […]

Ask your questions to Olympic sprinting champions

Today I’m in L.A. for a “running camp” hosted by Adidas, designed to introduce members of the media to Adidas-sponsored athletes and to present new gear for the upcoming season. The event is interesting for a few reasons, including the odd coincidence that I’m the only female member of the U.S. media in attendance. After […]

Real Women of Running – Running Religion

On occasion, I enjoy posting quotes from real women runners. Whether barely a beginner, an experienced elite, or any level in between, all of us gals are bound together by the common themes of our running experience.     Running means everything to me. I find trail running to be the best form of meditation. […]

Take a Break – and Bike!

I know you love running as much as I do. But sometimes don’t you like to mix it up a bit? Try a change of pace, a break in your routine? Why not pack your bags and head to a three-day cycling camp to learn new skills, experience cross-training at it’s finest and best of […]

Imelda in the House?

Most women I know (myself included) have far too many shoes. And as runners, we’re doubly guilty of Imelda-Marcos-like tendencies. Since paring down our collections is hardly a desirable solution, perhaps the Shoe Wheel can help. The Shoe Wheel, a creation of husband and wife design company Rakku, holds up to 30 pairs of shoes […]
