Last week I described the various possibilities for racing. I just wanted to set the table for a deeper discussion of why we race, and what we can do to feel good about it.
American Olympian PattiSue Plummer tells her high school girls cross country and track teams to remember “we are racers, not runners.” There is so much interesting about this idea, and also so much anxiety and hype over racing, that I want to unpack this weird thing we do called racing.
“I need to work on my speed.” This is something I hear all the time from new runners.
In the last couple weeks, I outlined the broad strokes of what a runner might do over the winter.
Hi all! I’ve just got back from a very interesting course on coaching distance runners and I hope to be able to share some of the things I’ve learned here.
The Canadian cross country championships are upon us. Yes, cue the snide remarks about the “age-group” season being done, and get ready for the real men and women.
Things went down at Thames Valley Golf Course. I think it is only fair to look at the results, and compare them to the predictions.
