Una Minimalada 250K
By Antonio Madriñan
(ENGLISH VERSION as translated by Google Translate can be read below.)
Pues si amigos así de impactante suena el nombre, y así de impactante ha sido el reto que he realizado en el Concejo de Corvera (en el Principado de Asturias), se que estabais impacientes por leer este post , y la verdad espero no defraudaros con el ya que he publicado varios en distintos sitios, y todos se parecen un poco.

El Reto
El reto consistía en estar corriendo durante 48 horas en un circuito ovalado de 770 metros, el circuito era de arena y gran parte del mismo había bastante desnivel, tanto positivo como negativo.

La razón

Heart Breaker Half Marathon
Third Time's a charm
By Paraganek

And here it comes again, Heart Breaker half marathon, one of my favorite annual challengers.

2 years ago I had to refuse the challenge at the very last moment because of a stress fracture from doing "Too Much Too Soon".

Year later I felt strong and confident and went for it full speed. Had a blast (full story here Heart Breaker 2012 ).

Official Report for Cupid's Chase 2013
By OdiarAmor


I was really quite nervous about this race for several reasons. The biggest reason was simply because although I had planned several practice runs for this event, I had not actually run anything more than 1.5 miles or so. Heck, I can't even think of the last time I've even attempted to run anything more than a mile or two, even shod! Another reason I was nervous was because Tennessee weather can be so unpredictable and I was very unfamiliar with the course. To help with my nerves, I decided to make myself a tutu to keep my mind on other things.

(I think it turned out pretty well)

I also decided that if I was going to run barefoot, I might as well make my toes look good. I decided on a bright pink with...
