I have been on both sides of the race smarts equation though overall, I believe this is one of my advantages as a racer simply because I recognize that racing smart is oftentimes more important than fitness.

  • Shamrock Marathon Strategy

    The Shamrock Half Marathon and 8k are always a great test for your winter training building on the Frostbite 15k. As a team, we will be supporting the Cameron K Gallagher Foundation this year racing in the memory of Cameron. Cameron passed away shortly after crossing the finish line at this race 3 years ago but since has reached hundreds of thousands of people for the cause of childhood depression through her foundation. Think of her on race day.

Congratulations to Alex Lienert, this week's athlete of the week. Alex is very committed, does everything with purpose, always chooses the more challenging option, asks for and listens to advice from his coaches, and is a fun, supportive team member. Last Sunday, Alex battled cold temperatures, sandstorms, sleet, rain, and wind at the Yuengling Shamrock Half Marathon and somehow still managed to finish with a big PR. He is a great example of an athlete who makes the best of what's thrown at him and uses mental toughness to persevere when the going is rough. He "Lived Red" this past weekend at Shamrock, proving to be strong examples for all of us to look to. Congratulations Alex! ... See MoreSee Less
