Highlights: Pacers, Races & More
I've gathered some posts that I hope you'll find fun to check out!
How to Be a Fitness Product Tester - My best personal experience with this was when I tried out some New Balance running shoes in exchange for a review on Trail and Ultra Running. They even used my photo of my shoes, which is kind of fun!
Run Repeat - Speaking of shoes, you can check out this site before you buy your next pair of running shoes for reviews.
Athletes' Winter Tales - In order to produce more oxygen carrying red blood cells and to make running at sea level easier, some elite runners train away from home. Mother Jo Pavey no longer trains away from home and says that you really can train anywhere, though. Here's another look at how high altitude helps from Hungry Runner Girl along with a 20% off code for the Utah Valley Marathon.
Comparison of all of the Utah Marathons - Speaking of Utah, I've run the St.George Marathon in Utah - a beautiful state, but too many hills for me!
Should I Run With a Pace Group? I'm running a marathon on February 28 and I think that I'll at least start out with a pacer. I did that before, but I couldn't hang on. Maybe this time I will!
Terri placed 2nd in her age group in a 5K race, but the best part of the race was seeing her daughter win her first age group award!
New mother Christine earned a 5K PR with a time of 23:34 and finished 3rd in her age group!
When Deb ran a 10K on Valentine's Day, it was her 100th race and she placed 4th in her age group!
Triathlon training Grateful Mama blogger finished her first 10 mile race and followed that up with a 29 mile bike ride!
I ran a trail half marathon on Valentine's Day and finished 3rd in my age group!
Visit Debs' blog to see how evenly she ran her recent 50K and finished 5th female in 4:05!
