Are you ready to Run Faster?

By Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach (@fritschechad)

I never considered myself a runner, in fact I did not run until I got out of high school.  I enjoyed running, but I was too busy playing basketball, baseball, golf, and football as a kid.  After high school, I started to run as a way of staying in shape since team sports became more […]

New Running Route: Early Bird 5K!

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens (@ahrensdesiree)

There is nothing more invigorating than waking up early in a city. Even though there are buildings, houses, and cars all around…everything is quiet.
