The Fitness Tech Podcast: Live From Walnut Creek Rec Area (Video)

February 12, 2011 – It’s Long Run Saturday!  Why do I say that, you might ask?  In typical marathon and half marathon training programs, there is always a long run scheduled for the weekend some time.  Usually somewhere between 6 and 20 miles, this run is almost always a tough one of the week!  So hey, if you have to do a long one, you might as well do it with some friends!  Welcome to Long Run Saturday!

First Race of the 2011 Season and a Look Back at a Year of Firsts!

It’s that time of the year again where we start thinking about better weather and the races that come with them.  This year is no different, with the exception that the distances get farther and the times get shorter.  In 2010, I had a bunch of firsts.   I finished two Marathons (Lincoln in May and Omaha in September) improving with each one.  I set a new personal best at the half Marathon distance in Papillion with a time of [spp-timestamp time="1:47"] and ran more 10Ks than I care to count.  I also came out of the year lighter than I started,
