Every February the American Heart Association asks us all to take a minute and think about our hearts. Our hearts pump blood throughout our bodies providing oxygen and nutrients to all of our vital organs and muscles. Once the oxygen is used up by tissues and organs the deoxygenated blood returns to our hearts through our veins and is then sent to the lungs where carbon dioxide and oxygen are exchanged.
Are you ready to accept the challenge??? Starting on February 1st, we are introducing our monthly bRUNch challenges! Each month, we will challenge you to exceed your running goals and reward you with some awesome prizes including free race entries from our race partners free swag, and more! This month we are giving away two race entries to the REVEL Running Race Series.
While you are enjoying the trails, it is extremely important that you pay attention to your safety. While running is no doubt beneficial for your health, it does come with some risks. As such, appropriate precautions should always be taken.
The holiday season is upon us and that means eating delicious food and lots of it! However, with comes eating all that delightful food there comes a lot of leftovers and sadly, even waste. Need some tasty ideas for your leftovers? We reached out to some of our amazing partners and asked them to share some of their best “leftover” recipes with us and we will be sharing them with you all holiday season!
Fall is here, one of our favorite running seasons, but it also means; running in the dark and wearing layers. As a morning runner, I love layering up, heading outside, and inhaling the crisp morning air. I am not a morning person whatsoever, so my daily morning run is very important in helping start my day, you could almost say it is more important than my coffee.
Each of us has a story about why and how we started running. The reasons vary, but the results are all the same. The motivation. The determination. The sweat. The blood. The tears. Today we wanted to share our individual stories on how we became runners and then bRUNchers.
Last month I ran my second marathon. However, my second marathon was much different from my first. Knowing that I’ve ran 26.2 miles before, I felt extremely confident in both my mind and body. When race day arrived, I was ready! I entered my corral, found my pace group, 4:15, (a little ambitious) but right around the pace I had been training at.
Before heading out for a run you lace up your running shoes and slather on sunscreen on to protect your exposed skin, you make sure your water-belt is full and that your gps watch is ready to log all those miles. But what do you do when it comes to your eyes? What are you doing to protect them?
