1812 Challenge and Half Marathon
By Tristan-OH


This past weekend I traveled up to northern NYS to visit family, and run in a race for the first time in New York since I was in high school (that'd be about 20 years ago). I was really thinking about cancelling, or dropping to the half since my training had not really prepared me to race 18+ miles this year. I had a good base, and a couple good races earlier this year, and with such a long drive to go there I figured I might as well just attempt the whole thing even if I had to go easy. I missed my last long run 2 weeks out, and also the last week prior to the race I ended up only running a single day (5 miles) so I was definitely on the under-prepared side of things. On top of that my schedule has been hectic flip flopping from nights and day shifts, and I was coming off my last night...​

World Masters' Athletics Championship, barefoot & huaraches
By Canary Island Feet


The last minute change to move the half & full marathon route to a park on the edge of Lyon's city center proved to be multi-loop course that was pretty craggly asphalt with sections of rough irregular gravel & small rocks ... with the race ending in a stadium. Using huaraches for the marathon was the best option for me at my level ... but a gal from India did the half marathon barefoot and a Costa Rican did the marathon barefoot.

Why do you run?
By BF Mitch


To spend time with friends.

To impress those friends.

To lose weight.

To abolish the feelings of guilt for eating like a crazed lion.

Or do you run for deeper reasons?

To test your physical, mental, and emotional capacity in an all out war against a course or trail.

To have time away from the daily grind and time for yourself.

To distract your mind from whatever may be going on in...
