Flying South for the winter? Isn't that what birds are suppose to do? This week I caught up with both of our winter training nests in Phoenix, AZ and San Antonio, TX. Asked them some questions about what they are up to and why they see value in spending some time together outside of their normal training grounds in a warmer climate.
This coming weekend we have two of our Haute Volée women racing in the US Half Marathon Championship in Houston, TX. Both Caitlin Comfort and Megan Rolland are coming off of great races this fall and last spring. In September, Megan set a half marathon PR in Philadelphia while Caitlin finished 3rd at USATF 20k Champs in New Haven, CT. Two months later Caitlin raced to an eleventh place finish at the US 12k Road Champs in Alexandria. I spent a little time catching up with them as they go into their races in Houston this weekend.
