Your race is a couple days away and you find out that the temperature is going to be unseasonably hot.  How should you change your race strategy?  Sunny Blende discusses what you should change and how the heat will affect you.  She also teaches us that heat acclimatization will benefit us in multiple ways even if our race isn't hot!  We reference the article that Sunny wrote for the September 2013 issue of UltraRunning Magazine.

Sally McRae, Josh Spector, David Daley, and Billy Yang put together this training adventure challenge as a way to prepare for their upcoming race, Run Rabbit Run 100 mile race.  A one day summit of the three largest peaks in Southern California - they dubbed it "The Triple Crown", but it has also been called the 8000M Challenge.

  • Mt Jacinto, San Gorgonio, and Mt. Baldy
  • 40 miles of running
  • 14,500 vertical feet of climbing
  • 18.5 hours total time
  • 305 miles of driving between trail heads

Sally brings her posse (Josh, Billy, Colin Cooley, and Ethan Newberry) to talk about ADVENTURE TRAINING.  It is a great way to mix up your training schedule and put yourself in a mock-type racing paradigm.  It is a great way to build relationships with your friends and create some memories.
