Say what you will about the groundhog, but Spring is here and it’s time to come out of our winter hibernation. In honor of the change in seasons, we offer you another great virtual excuse to lace up your sneaks and head out the door in reflective clothing: The Spring Fling.

I’m going to be a Sasquatch

Inspired by Christine’s post about NOT having an upcoming event, I finally went and signed up for this crazypants race. In the clever about page, the race organizers describe their mission as...

Posted by in Blog, Training

Is it cold or wet where you live, cold enough you just want to hit the snooze bar rather than leap out of your cozy bed and into some spandex?
