Run Commuting with Kids

We’ve got a great guest post for you today! Brendan Couvreux and his family of four run as their primary form of transportation. That’s right. Rather than drive or use public transit to get to work or run errands, they primarily run to get where they need to go (they do have a vehicle for longer road/camping trips). […]

Review: Henty Wingman Backpack

Henty takes a simple method of storing and transporting clothing to an entirely different level with their Wingman Backpack. This unique, smart bag transforms a heavy-duty garment carrier into a securely rolled-up backpack, making it a mobile gear transportation system for runners, cyclists, and walkers alike. Though a bit expensive, cyclists have sworn by the messenger-style Wingman for years. […]

Is Run Commuting a Movement?

Did anyone see this question in the latest edition of Runner’s World? We were asked whether we thought run commuting was a movement earlier this year during the WalkJogRun interview (though it was later edited out).  I said that I didn’t think so.  But since then, it really does seem like it has been taking […]

Bill Bradley interviewed long distance run […]

Technique: Keeping Your Shoelaces Tied

Nothing makes me more angry than having to stop and re-tie shoes during a race.  It doesn’t usually happen during 5K’s because the laces tend to keep themselves together for that short amount of time.  But for anything over that, it’s kind of nice to not have to worry about it and focus on the […]

In the News: Why a new Burlington cafe offers showers

Cleaning up after running to work is a topic of much discussion and debate.  Some people will absolutely not run to the office if they can’t shower when they get there.  Others, including some of the fine writers here at TRC, clean up without showering at all.  We’ll have a post about that soon, but […]

Getting Started – Part 1: Mentality

Anyone can run commute.  As long as you set your mind to it, you can do it. Ok, ok…  Maybe not everyone can do it, but the hardest part of trying anything new is convincing yourself to give it a shot and then doing it. Disregard the initial, extremist thoughts that may enter your head when […]

Beginnings

I’ve been an on-again, off-again runner for just over 15 years now (yikes!). It began as preparation for US Army Basic Training. I had three months to get ready and knew I would be running a lot once I was in, so I needed to be ready. So off I went on my first run […]
