We’re excited today to announce we’ve put that learning to good use and are releasing the all new PRO package. It’s a massive overhaul of tools built to improve your training.

Week 4 of the Find Your Strong Project asked us to share our running rituals and superstitions. One of the week’s winners, Joe T. (aka Middle Aged Athlete), talked to us about his response and how he got hooked on running: ‘ For some reason, I always listen to “Gangsta’s Paradise” minutes before the race starts.

These days he would be known as a Marathon Maniac. She remembers going to long distance races all over the country. She thought the participants, including her dad, were nuts. What else would a kid conclude after watching her dad throw up in someone’s hotel room after a marathon … Continue reading

Question of the week: Do you run in the rain?

Before I get to the question of the week, let me tell you a little about the last few weeks. The weather in San Francisco has given all the meteorologists the middle finger; it’s been sunny when they said it was going to be raining, 60 degrees when it was supposed to be in the 90s, and calm when it was supposed to be windy.
