What a nice day to run a 5K twice! Not only did I complete Terrain Racing‘s San Jose course today in about 45 minutes, but I ran it a second time with a team of six students from the RSJ track team and they rocked it. They really worked together and tackled obstacles that they normally would not have been able to complete alone! It … Continue reading Race: Terrain Racing San Jose!

I know it sounds easy, but training for runs isn’t as simple as people would think. It really all depends on the type of runs you’re working towards accomplishing. Take a 5K for example, you could get away with running a bit here and there, possibly doing a few leg days at the gym, but a Half-Marathon or a Full for that matter takes much … Continue reading Training For Runs
