Race Review: Quad XC Open 5K

Race Review: Quad XC Open 5K

The race was exhilarating. I was representing Philadelphia Runner Track Club, or PRTC, for the first time while racing on the 5K course at Belmont Plateau in Philadelphia. It was hilly! So hilly! People hike Mt. Everest and think "At least I didn't have to race Belmont Plateau!" I may just be being a baby about hills, but have I mentioned it was hilly?

3 Weeks to The Philly 10K!

3 Weeks to The Philly 10K!

Happy race month! After last week's cutback longer run, it's peak week! You are fit, strong and ready to take on any training on any day. You've been putting in the work so you're ready to go the distance. This weeks long run is the longest of our training plan but by now the miles should be starting to pass by more quickly. Make sure you take some time to appreciate what you have done and what you are still doing! Keep hydrating, stretching, and getting enough sleep this week. 

Broad Street Run Training: 6 Weeks to 10 Miles

Broad Street Run Training: 6 Weeks to 10 Miles

We're getting close to the midpoint of Broad Street Run training now, and that probably looks different for different runners. First-timers might be struggling to keep up with the routine, or might be working that first-timer buzz for all its worth, letting the novelty of the experience fuel them. If you've done this before, maybe you're working towards a PR, and this is the time to dig in, really commit. Or, maybe you realize this isn't the year, and resolve to just have a blast out there, regardless of what the pace clock says.
