Spring is here and for many people, the turning of the season invites new runners to lace up and try their hand (or feet actually) at a pursuit that can transform you in multiple ways. Running is one of the fastest growing sports in North America with over 60 Million active runners in the US alone. 

For many new runners their time on the run is short lived however and hopes of running i...

For most runners, there is a love-hate relationship with hills. Mid-workout a big nasty hill can tear out your soul and leave you bent over clasping your knee-caps. Post workout, however, once the benefits of the work you put in are realized, you can see significant improvements in your running performance. 

In this weeks post, we'll take a look at the reasons you'll want to incorporate...

As Jack Frost is finally starting to back off and spring is getting closer, its time to get that pep back in your step and shake off the winter blues. For many runners, months of isolation on the treadmill or even a total hiatus from training has left your stride flat, your lungs heavy, and your motivation low. It's perfect time to get back in the groove and kickstart your running. 

In...

At the time of this post, there are just over 6 weeks until the running of the 122nd Boston Marathon on April 16th. For many, it will be the first time toeing the line at the most iconic race in the world, and likely an accomplishment that has taken some blood, sweat, and tears to achieve. 

It's undeniable that this legendary race is like no other, thanks to the rich history of the even...

If you're looking to run faster, stronger or simply just be more durable as a runner, the Tempo Run should be a regular workout in your rotation. If you're a bit confused and asking; How do I run a tempo run? What pace should I run?  How far should it be, well slow down (at least for a moment) and let me explain.

The intensity of a Tempo Run is best described at a pace that is comf...

42.2 Kilometres. 26.2 Miles. That’s big, and probably why only 0.5% of the population have ever ran a marathon in their lifetime. But for those that have laced up and put one down, there’s not a single person that wouldn’t tell you it’s a life changer.

There’s just something about crossing the finish line in a layer of salt with a relentless battle conquered that changes you. The hours...

For most runners winning the marathon you signed up for is far from the goal.  Likely it's living to tell about it, and perhaps being able to sport the fashionably obnoxious race shirt. And, for most people you're competing against only one person...........the spandex clad warrior in the mirror.

It's interesting to me that we call these running events "races" when 98% of the pack...

 It's officially December, and you know what that means! Halls will be decked, bells will be jingled, and your days will be Merry (some get a bit more "merry" than others). But that doesn't mean waist sizes should expand, training plans get burned, and running progress is downed faster than that Egg Nog you're drinking out of a Reindeer cup. 

December is a hard training month for runner...

It can be said that good runners are built on the road, but great runners are built in the gym. It's common to see distance runners under performing, stuck at a plateau or continuously plagued by injury, which can often be linked back to muscle weakness and imbalance. 

If you want to take your running up to the next level you've got to get in the gym and build a strong muscle base...

For most runners "Faster" tends to be a top priority when it comes to measuring success and setting goals. It may be directly connected to a race distance and a desire to improve your time, or it may just be seeing your training paces get quicker. 

 One of the most powerful benefits of running is achieving milestones and proving to yourself what you're capable of when you put your mind...
