Join us at the Front Runner Metric Century (62 miles)

front runner

For the last many years I have participated in the Front Runner Metric Century. I love it! This is a great point-to-point race starting in Salt Lake City and end at the Ogden Union Station. After the race you ride the Front Runner Train back to the start – so it’s unique and fun! Last year ended up being wet and cold but I loved the challenge and finished frozen to my bike. Thank goodness the Race Directors opened up their van to us and we had the heat on full blast. Despite the dismal conditions last year I will be back again this year on April 25th! This is simply a well-marked, very well organized event that I love to support! They also have great volunteers and a great food selection at the aide stations. It’s also fun to do with with family and friends! I will be doing it this year with the team I coach. Go Team Blonde Runner – TBR! (tbrtriathlon.com). Use the code TBR2015 and save $10. See you there!

The next Running Form Class will be held on Wednesday March 25 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Bountiful area.  This is a one-time lecture style class designed to review common running form mistakes.  We will go over injury prevention and review drills to make you faster.  Each participant will also be given feedback on their form.  Please dress to run – we will only be running a little bit to learn the drills and give you form feedback so it’s not rigorous.  Beginners welcome.  Message theblonderunner@gmail.com if you’d like to learn how to reserve a spot.  Pre-payments is required.

SMSG_V_3CP
I am super excited to announce my newest sponsor.  The Intermountain Sports Medicine Specialty Group and I will be teaming up to help you get healthy.  They offer a large array of services for all level of athletes, from the very beginner to the elite.  I feel honored to be supported as an athlete by such an amazing organization.  I have personally benefited from the great services they offer and refer all my athletes to them.  They have top notch medical care with board certified physicians, fellowship trained in Sports Medicine.  I love that they provide non-surgical treatment for pain and injury to get athletes back out there training as quickly as possible so they can enjoy an active lifestyle. They also offer medical services and have many offices in Northern Utah including;  Salt Lake City, Bountiful, TOSH- Murray, Alta View, and Riverton

I have recently had the privilege of touring the LiVe Well Center at the Salt Lake Clinic.  What an amazing resource!  Many of their facilities offer valuable assessments including:

Body Composition & Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Testing

Lactate Assessment or Vo2Max Testing

Musculoskeletal Functional Analysis

Bike Fit & Testing

Diet & Nutrition Education

Exercise & Physical Therapy Services

Running Analysis

As a coach, I love to have my athletes take advantage of assessments like this. Simply the information provided from these assessments helps me coach my athletes better.  If you are looking to become a better athlete I highly recommend you check into all the services Intermountain Sports Medicine has to offer.  I have participated in many of these assessments myself and will be sharing more information about them on my YouTube account at The Blonde Runner in the coming months – stay tuned!

I am looking forward to an amazing year and partnership with Intermountain!
