Last week was my second and final week of coaching at the summer running camps in Craftsbury, VT. I had a great time and got a ton of running in (hope to get a post up on that aspect of the camps this week), but I’m happy to be home. This summer, like most in […]

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet. I spent the last week coaching at a Masters Running Camp up in Craftsbury, VT. The schedule was incredibly hectic, with little down time, so I was only able to get two posts up. I also wasn’t able to filter much through my RSS feeds to […]

As this roundup is posted, I’ll be heading up to Vermont for two weeks of coaching at the Craftsbury Running Camps. I may try and do a few posts that provide a bit of an overview of what goes on up there (if you’ve never been, I highly recommend it!). It’s basically runner heaven: good […]

This Week in Runblogging: July 7 to July 13 2014–Lots of Garmin!

Garmin-Vivofit.jpg

I’ve been playing with a lot of fitness electronic devices over the past few months, and used the blog last week to knock out a few reviews of products in this niche that I have really enjoyed using. The Garmin Vivofit is a great choice if you’re in the market for an activity tracker, with […]

This is going to be a short roundup due to the fact that last week included the 4th of July holiday here in the US. It’s traditionally a vacation week for many families, mine included, and is typically one of the slowest traffic weeks of the year for my blog (and I’m sure many others […]

The big running news for me this week was that my beginner 5K group ran their end-of-program race yesterday. It’s incredibly rewarding as a coach to see how far they have progressed over the past 9 weeks, and even more rewarding to have been able to watch them cross the finish line of what I […]

Two Weeks in Runblogging: May 19-June 1 2014

The Memorial Day holiday here in the US typically marks the unofficial start of summer for me. During my years as a college professor it came right after the end of the Spring semester, and it marked the start of 3 months without any classes to teach and thus more time to spend with my […]

This week was full of learning experiences for me. A hot 14 mile run on Monday reminded me that I need to start taking hydration seriously again now that the weather is warming up. A 5K on Thursday night reminded me that course and conditions on race day can conspire to smash hopes of a […]

This Week in Runblogging 5/5 to 5/11 2014

Kinvara-5.jpg

The big news this week for me was the return of the Saucony Kinvara. Version 4 was a big let down due to a poor fitting toebox, but version 5 has fixed that and then some. I ran 11 miles in them last weekend and wrote up a first impression review on Monday. I’ve since […]

Ron-and-Nate.jpg

Sometimes you just need to do something a little bit different, and maybe just a bit dumb, in your training. On Thursday I had 8 miles on my schedule, but wound up running three separate times in three different pairs of shoes for a total of almost 16 miles. It resulted from seizing unexpected running […]
