Saturday Group Run | 14 Miles

"There's a great empowerment that I get from running, not only from the endorphins . . . Being a runner, to me, has made being depressed impossible. If ever I'm going through something emotional and just go outside for a run, you can rest assured that I'll come back with clarity and empowerment."

Alanis Morrisette, American-Canadian singer-songwriter, Triathlete, Marathon runner

Remember last winter when we were dreaming about warm runs and sunshine? Well, it’s here! As you get acclimated to the rising temps and increasing humidity, listen to your body. Or better yet, take a little advise from Coach Amy and stay cool while training in the upcoming summers months. Running with friends help, too!

No we aren’t meeting in the desert, but I wanted to share this picture because the hills in the Moab marathon made me swear to never curse the hills in KC again :) Best way to feel no hill? Practice running them!

Coach Amy will be out of town for this session but do NOT worry your heads! JJ is filling in and each athlete will receive their individual workout in an email. Meet at our Nall hill.
