Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Tue Sep 29th, 2009, 1 comments

Saturday was gorgeous, despite all the rain.  (Seriously, people. If you don’t live in Asheville, I can’t possibly explain the amount of rain we’ve had this year. It’s incredible, and I realized that it’s suddenly autumn and I don’t feel like I really had a true summer.) We had a great group at the workshop, [...]

What a way to start a weekend – early morning running

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Fri Sep 18th, 2009, 4 comments

This is certainly the year of rain for Asheville. Before the sun came up this morning, I roused Oliver and myself and headed out the door for a pre-dawn running session. The misting rain felt great, and although 100% humidity is always interesting for running, listening to the air is a nice meditation. I haven’t [...]

Another race day today. I ran in the Asheville Citizen Times Half Marathon.

Chi Running Responsible for Win at National Trail Championships

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Fri Sep 4th, 2009, 10 comments

Yes, you can say you heard if first right here in the blog. All of my Chi Running race-specific training paid off and I actually won my age group at the 2009 USATF National 10K Trail Championships last weekend. But, let’s be clear about this. It doesn’t mean that I’m the fastest 55-59 year old trail [...]

The Midfoot Strike Running Revolution is Happening

Posted by Danny Dreyer on Fri Sep 4th, 2009, 15 comments

Moving around (walking and maybe running) in Santa Fe!

Posted by Elizabeth Frost on Thu Sep 3rd, 2009, 0 comments

Hi there… Going to be in Santa Fe this weekend, and I hope to go running once or twice. I know we’ll be walking plenty, so I am planning for comfortable clothes, broken-in shoes and thinking about keeping my core engaged. Walking around all day can be either tiring or invigorating. I plan for it [...]
