A Your262 athlete wrote us to share one of their marathon experiences, which unfortunately ended the way it does for too many athletes, particularly newbie marathoners; by “bonking,” and walking the final few miles of the race.

Many runners frequently begin running either because they want to lose weight, or to eliminate other bad habits in their lives such as smoking or drinking. Add to that the fact that running can help your cardio vascular system, help make you sleep better, give you an energy boost from the rush of endorphins to your system, help strengthen your core; the list is endless. Regardless of the reason, the overall benefits far out weigh the reasons not to run.

The winter months can be a bit trying for those of us training for a spring marathon and dealing with inclement weather. Depending on where you live, ice, snow, sleet, and rain can wreak havoc on your outdoor training not to mention running in the dark because of shorter days. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get a good workout in at the gym or in your home on a treadmill.

When buying running shoes there are many factors to consider. Some of these include price, brand, fit, and style to mention a few. As technology has become such a part of the running shoe industry, helping to "even out the playing field" throughout the market, this variable is no longer the main force driving the running shoe category. For the sake of this post, however, let's simply focus on fit and how you should find what works best for you.

Winter running outside can, at times, be tough and even dangerous. It seems to always be dark, snow banks inhibit drivers from seeing you and slush and ice puddles are everywhere. It can also be quite beautiful. There is something special about running outside when it is snowing lightly or just after a heavy snowfall.

This past Sunday I ran a local marathon; the Myles Standish Marathon. It was tough!! I had signed up for the Philadelphia Marathon (flat and fast), but last minute didn't want to travel with the family (wife, 2 year old, and a new born) given there was a marathon 20 minutes from my house!
