Goody bags are what we always received as kids at birthday parties. Kids collect bags of candy for Halloween. Conferences have a bag that is given to collect show materials. Why not bags for running races? In fact, I think I have about 10 bags collected from various events. Thanks to Lodi Utilities, the Lodi Mother’s Day Run has a very nice bag to put our change of clothes, our coupons and other free items that sponsors have donated. Please reuse and recycle the bag when you are done! Continue reading

Week #4 Training Tips Nutrition:
Record everything you put in your mouth for the day and you may surprise yourself. At the end of the day look back over your journal and ask…….
1. Was what I ate “healthy” and natural or was it processed and/or junk food?
2. Is this “fuel” for my body that will enabled me to function or junk that causes me to “BONK”?
3. Was I gorging or grazing?
Consider keeping the journal for a week and note how you feel when you train as well. Should you make some adjustments on food intake? Can you relate food intact with how you feel during a run?
Week #4 Training Tips Running:
Most Important Running Gear? Your shoes, replace them every 300-400 miles. Running in old or worn out shoes can lead to running injuries. Are you actually running in running shoes?? Go to a specialty store for expert advice.
Week #4 Challenge: Do the Rocky!
Are you up for Hill Street??
- Day 1 go up 1 time.
- Day 2 go up 2 times.
- Day 2 go up 3 times.
- Day 4 go up 4 times.
- Day 5 go up 5 times.
You will know that you conquered Hill Street at the end of Day 5….and don’t forget your “Rocky” Dance at the end!!!
Team Training Group Run:
Thursday March 10 at 6 PM. Meet at the Top of Main Street. Dress appropriately for an outside run in the dark (safety gear like reflectors, blinking lights and yak tracks might be in order).
