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

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! ( 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 if you’d like to learn how to reserve a spot.  Pre-payments is required.
