The inaugural Milwaukee Running Festival weekend is finally here! We know a lot of work has gone into making this race fantastic. Chris Ponteri and crew have been hard at work to make this a great event for runners. And we know MKE runners have been hard at work training for race day!
What it comes down to is … we predict a lot of fast times and PRs at every distance 😉
So we’re curious – how will you celebrate a negative split, strong finish, new PR or podium finish?
Racing season is upon us! No matter what distance you trained for, you worked hard throughout the spring, summer and fall toward your goal. That likely meant small sacrifices here and there for the sake of running the way you want on the big day.
While there’s no question that training hard, week after week, day after day, is rewarding, it feels great to take a break after a big race.
So we’re wondering: MKE runners, what do you look forward to most during the off season?
Some of us love a rainy spring race. Others look forward to a brisk fall race. And still some like working up a good sweat during a hot summer race. Or … maybe you’re one that enjoys the challenge of racing on snow and ice!
We’d like to know – which is your favorite season for racing?
Most runners are creatures of habit – we tend to like our routines and that includes when we log our miles during the day. Some of us are early birds, some of us like running in the moonlight. Whatever your preference, getting in your miles is the thing that counts!
But, we’re curious – when do MKE runners prefer to run? Tell us when you like to get your run on in the poll below!
Happy 2014, everyone! If you’re like us, a new year means setting new running goals. Like tackling a new distance. Or getting a shiny new PR.
Whatever you choose to focus on this upcoming year, having a goal gives you something to train for and will help you stay motivated, especially during these dark winter days! And don’t be afraid to dream big – if your goal doesn’t scare you at least a bit, you’re probably not aiming high enough!
After a summer of unusually cool temps and low humidity, we’re now facing typical August weather: hot and muggy.
Yesterday afternoon, we ran along the MKE Lakefront and were surprised by the number of runners who decided to sweat it out in the 90+ degree heat and humidity. If there were this many runners willing to brave those conditions, it got us wondering – is it ever too hot to run outside?
You know you’re a runner . . . when you’re way more excited about the new fall running shoes than the new fall fashions.
We recently salivated over took a look at the Runner’s World Fall 2013 Shoe Guide and as always it got us excited about adding to our ever-expanding wardrobe of running shoes. Between trainers, lightweight trainers, flats, trail shoes, spikes, etc., is it ever possible to have too many pairs of shoes? Our answer is a simple, “Never!”
So today’s poll is focused on running shoes – specifically, how many are in your current rotation? Whether it’s one, three, or – gulp – a dozen pairs, share what’s in your closet!
