Changing training plans for the LA marathon
by Chic Runner
posted February 1, 2010 at 5:05pm

So since I decided to run the LA marathon instead of focusing solely on the Surf City half marathon as I had originally thought of, that means training has to be mixed up big time. No more short runs for me, especially with all the non-running I’ve been...more

After a long day of work and a bit too little sleep, travel day to Miami for the ING Half Marathon went pretty smoothly. Sue, Herm and I all took turns being slightly cranky (which is one of the joys of traveling with two other runners), making unfortun...more

Recovering from big training blocks

When I was training for my first marathon, I ran practically all my runs on the treadmill. I’d get to my local Gold’s Gym in Bozeman first thing in the morning, right around 630am, and hit it hard for an hour or so. I’d bring along my hand towel (...more

This morning @BrooksElite drew my attention to a new blog that, well, made me tear up a little. Save Johanna's Brain is a website set up to raise money for Brooks athlete Johanna Olson, who is battling her second brain tumor. Johanna is just 30. She is a ...more

Miami Marathon: Getting mentally tough

posted January 25, 2010 at 3:34pm

The jargon is the same whether it’s March in college basketball or an Olympic year for a figure skater. It’s the same whether you are a professional athlete or someone just trying to run their best 5K time in a local road race. No matter the stage,...more

The last long run
by Byline to Finish Line
posted January 24, 2010 at 2:25pm

One week from today is the ING Miami Half Marathon and thus came my last long run. It was short by long run standards — an hour and 15 minutes — without a lot of high tempo intervals. Of course, I was feeling really good and probably went a few cli...more

In the zone for Miami
by Byline to Finish Line
posted January 22, 2010 at 1:41pm

Part of me wished my camera had been tucked away in my pocket. The other part of me knew that even if I had it, there really was no stopping the morning run. The pre-dawn sky was starting to lighten and the houses along the waterfront glowed as the str...more

So this tour through the streets of LA for the LA Marathon course preview might as well be called the Billy and Danica show it seems. If you missed last weekend’s tour of miles 20-26.2, check it out! Billy’s report is also a little bit more technical,...more

I came across this amazing woman on Bust and was intrigued by the opening paragraph. The word ’superwoman’ is thrown around way too often, but here’s an athlete who completely deserves the description. Amy Palmiero-Winters is a 37-year-old mother o...more

First off, my thoughts and prayers go out to those in Hatit. I was watching the news this morning and the devastating pictures really reminded me that I am so lucky to be alive, to have the ability to do the things I love and to keep smiling. Please remem...more

I am super excited to race this year. Last year’s triathlon season, my first attempt at tri, was a blast, and even though I only did three races, it was like a party every time. Who’da thought exercising for 11 1/2 hours would be fun? Uhh… this gi...more

Victories and Failures in Women's Sports in 2009, or #FTW and #FAIL (Hot or Not for us old-timers)

posted December 31, 2009 at 4:18pm

I was going to make a Hot or Not in 2009 list for women's sports but then realized that "Hot or Not" is so 1990's when people still read magazines (the Hot or Not list was in Cosmo, no? I mean, I wouldn't know because a good feminist doesn't read Cosmo, I...more

So Saturday morning I got up bright and early for my 6-10 miler. I wanted to hit ten miles, but I didn’t know how I would fare and I didn’t want to push myself too hard pending how I felt during the run. I was just going to run until I was tired. I st...more

Checkin' the mic (extra funny if you're an Aqua Teen Hunger Force fan). Next summer, Rev3 is hosting not one, not two, but three triathlons east of the Mississippi. That's pretty sweet. What's even more sweet is that I can get you $10 off your registrati...more
