How to choose the right coach for you

How to choose the right coach for you

It’s been 4 weeks into the new year and athletes have had a chance to assess their goals and where they stand at.

That year after the incredible accomplishment of 70.3 Augusta, I wrote on the blog about wanting to do more. To run for something bigger, something…

An amazing week for Endurance Sports

What a weekend it has been for marathons (and triathlon)! I can’t write anything more than write a flat sentence about their records; I will attempt to write a bit more once I’ve processed it.
