Graduating from college is a milestone. For most students, it means starting the career that they’ve worked hard to find the last few years with internships, networking and Greek life (somehow I am pretty sure this helps with finding jobs). The transition means probably less partying on the weekdays, starting a 9-5 job, maybe moving to a new city, and starting to pay back those student loans.
In need of a running buddy or two? We all know that having someone by your side can turn an otherwise boring, slow run into something really fun. Running is easier with someone else. It’s good to have someone to hold you accountable. But where to start? What kind of person are you looking for? What kind of runner are you?
I’ve written before that I don’t really understand New Year’s resolutions, but I get why people like to make them. It makes sense, the feeling of a a fresh start. A new year, a new you. This is going to be the year you do (insert something dramatic)! You are going to run more than you did last year, you will be fitter, stronger, and healthier than you’ve ever been.
On the heels of the holiday season and with the new year upon us you’ve probably read more than your share of sappy pieces about taking stock of the things you have and how to achieve more than ever before. So, if you are sick of these posts and just want to learn more about how to get fitter and faster, then you have come to the right place, sort of.
Dear T&F Athletes,
It’s 2016 and with World Indoors and Rio on the horizon and I’m writing you with the hopes that you’ll take a minute, read this note, and hopefully leave with an intensified purpose in this new year.
Running Resolutions A resolution is a decision to do or not do something. I’m not much of a believer in thinking about and setting goals one day out of the year. Instead, I’ve found it more useful to set goals for each day, week, month, and year and continually keep track of how I’m doing. Joe […]
What running taught me in 2015 The close of 2015 is just a few days away. The end of another chapter. The end of the year is a good time to reflect on all of those failed goals, those resolutions you didn’t stick to (I swear this is the year I’m going to learn Spanish), […]
You have been crushing workouts lately, you feel yourself getting faster, you know you are getting stronger. Then you get that feeling. A little tickle in the throat, one too many sneezes, a consistent runny nose. NOOOOO! Joe BosshardJoe is a former University of Colorado runner with a penchant for numbers and filing tax returns. […]
It’s finally here! Star Wars: The Force Awakens had its world premiere this week and tonight at midnight it’s available to the public. We are going to watch it 8 or 9 times and will probably have our whole outlook on life changed so we thought we’d look back on the Original Trilogy and see […]
A new study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology says carbs are the way to faster times. Jill Lecky and a team of researchers at the Australian Catholic University’s Mary Mackillop Institute for Health Research tested the importance of fuel source to endurance sports performance by blocking the body’s use of fat.
