Take the #BeerFit challenge!

This time of year, you’ll hear people talking about their New Year’s Resolutions. Most will fail. But there’s a way to improve your odds: Balance fitness and fun. There’s two main issues with resolutions that cause them to last as your hangover. The first is they tend to be overly ambitious.

‪“I feel like I could have gotten through the race without drinking a beer, but it was nice to stop and guzzle a beer really fast and keep going. It was probably about 80 miles into the race where I had my first beer.”

A marathon is a brutal, exhausting thing to do to your body. Running four marathons back-to-back-to-back-to-back is an exponentially more ruinous endeavor, and even the very best at one of the most physically extreme sports in the world don’t get by without destroying themselves.

This summer was the first time I years that I didn't do any road races. That was mostly due to injuries, but I also found it saved me a fairly considerable amount of time and money it takes to travel and enter road races. It was a nice break.

I thought this article summarized some of the reasons why (some) runners are gravitating away from road races: Higher fees, increased competition from group fitness sports, and free running and fitness clubs. Organized racing can still... be tremendously popular, as the NY Marathon showed, but there are signs the bubble is popping.

I don't think this is a bad thing and may course correct some of the excesses of the growth of running as a commercial sport.

I'll always love the social and competitive part of large scale races. But if economics force race organizers to get back in touch with running's underground roots, I think that could be healthy.

Inspiring.

"We usually see competitive women, particularly athletically excellent women, only in one of two ways: either competing to defeat one another, or all about team over self. But that’s a flawed, limiting paradigm. The Shalane Effect dismantles it: She is extraordinarily competitive, but not petty; team-oriented, but not deferential. Elevating other women is actually an act of self-interest: It’s not so lonely at the top if you bring others along."

She does not just talk about elevating her fellow women runners; she elevates them. And they win.
