Welcome to Take It and Run Thursday!
It' s our way to bring together the knowledge of all of us ordinary runners. It' s the virtual equivalent to putting our virtual heads together. Even though many of us aren' t elite athletes, coaches or authors, it doesn' t mean that we haven' t earned a well deserved PhD in running. Whether you are starting out, have 50 years of running under your belt or somewhere in between - all of us have lessons learned that make us wiser and better runners.
Today' s theme is .... The Secret of How To Qualify for Boston (and other big goals). Calling all experienced runners! Many Loungers have their eyes set on a BQmarathon this year. Share your tips on how to do it. And if you are one of the runners who are on a quest for the elusive BQ - share your tips on what you are doing. And if Boston isn' t in your sights, but you are planning for other big, hairy, audious goals - tell us your secrets of how you tackle and conquer them.
Next weeks theme is .... If I could only do one stretch to help my running, I would... Share with us your favorite stretch that also helps you run better, farther, faster or with fewer injuries. Explain it, show it, draw it, video it - whatever works for you. Tell us what you do, when you do it and how it helps you. And if you are like me, if you always intend to stretch more than you do, then share the best stretch you would do. :}
