For the Love of the Olympics!

Kristin Metcalf

My experience at the 2008 Olympic Trials was amazing. It was the best race of my life and I felt like I was experiencing an out of body runner high through the entire 3000m steeplechase race. I finished 2nd to qualify for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing and ran a PR, beating my previous time by 9 seconds. Such an amazing experience, to accomplish that goal I’d been fighting for for over 2 years when I first ran the Olympic A standard. That was 6 years ago and a lot has happened since then. I feel like I’ve grown up a lot and know more about myself and trust myself more than I ever have.

Fall Back In Love With Running

Jacquelyn Komen

All runners have a little case of the crazies, am I right? Some are training balls to the wall 365 days out of the year, eating their oatmeal at 4am to fuel up for a long run or running that extra .2 miles to reach a full 6. You know the drills. Whether you find yourself on this run-spastic scale or not, I can guarantee you have had times in your running career where you finish training for a goal race, and nothing sounds sweeter than a one month break to get your body and mind back to neutral.
