Keeping a Record

New Year. New fitness resolution. New running log to record all those miles.

I love all those pages waiting to be filled with information about training, races and fun runs with friends.

The Fit List

Happy New Year!
The Fit List brings you some races for the the last day of this year and the first month of the new year —  so you can end 2010 and start 2011 off right.

Aches and Pains

Injuries are a pain in the butt. In my case, literally.

Winter Motivation

Sticking with your workout routine is not so easy in December.

There are presents to buy and parties to attend. It’s also cold and dark, and there’s snow on the ground. All that makes it hard to get out for a run or to the gym for an exercise class.

Fit for a present; fit in the future.

Athletes are notoriously picky about their stuff.

The Fit List

Jingle, jingle, jingle. The Jingle Bell Run is this weekend in Champaign.
As there are fewer races during the winter months, I’m going to post those that I know of through early January. The Fit List will appear occasionally for the next few months, rather than every week, to update you on events.
Happy running/biking/etc. in the New Year!

Birthplace of the Marathon

Talk about a race with some history to it.

The Fit List

Run off some of those calories you ate on Thanksgiving. Here’s the list of upcoming races. They race calendar is getting shorter, so pick a race and enter while you can.

This weekend:
— FOLEPI River Trail Classic

The Fit List

The Fit List is getting skinnier, but there are still races out there to be run.
Check out the list and find one to enter.

This weekend:
— Mattoon Santa Chase

Wondering if you should exercise if you have a cold?

Got the sniffles? A sore throat, or nagging cough?

It’s cold and flu season. And if you’re feeling crummy, you may be wondering if you should go to the gym or for your run or walk, or skip it in favor of chicken soup and the couch.
