Are You Running Too Many Workouts in Marathon Training?

,
I was surprised that when I put up a picture about my workout on Instagram, I got quite a few questions from other runners about why doing two workouts is a rare occurrence for me. Most weeks during marathon training I only do one workout per week. This surprises a lot of people, but with marathon…

California International Marathon: Fueling Plan

,
One of the topics I get asked about the most through emails and comments is what I use to fuel my runs. I have posted about it before, shared with you exactly how I practiced in the buildup to both London Marathon races, but this year, we are changing it up a little. I know…

The One Reminder All Runners Need

Throughout the first 27 years of my life, if anyone had even mentioned the word coffee, my nose would scrunch. Bleugh.
