It's Training Season


’ve signed my 30 day contract with myself to run at least 30 minutes a day; 6 days a week ( I need 1 day to recover) and I would have to say that so far it's going well.

After my last blog (Why Am I Not Running) I connected with my co-worker Christina and her running group and I joined them for their Saturday long run of 7 miles. This is an awesome group, with ages ranging from 20-70 and the 70 year old male runner is a Boston qualifier which he will participate in this year. So, now that I’m back on the pavement what race am I training for?


If you are a novice runner or a veteran runner you may be aware that when training season begins you have to make two important decisions. First, what distance I’m going to run and second, what race am I training for? You might even decide to run races as a part of your training if your ultimate goal is to run a half or full marathon. But racing fees can add up if your not careful, so let’s look at a few local races with promotional discount codes.
