2019-01-24 - Champions are made in winter

randy flowersOutdoor winter running leaves us with incredible strength and balance. The heavy clothing and varied footing play into developing the ancillary muscles of the body that keep us from injury. These wicked runs will give us the armor we need to fight our way back to the higher mileage runs as the world thaws. The mental toughness needed to get out into the cold will give us the confidence to survive anything the spring long runs and races throw our way.  Bring it on! No matter how tough it gets out there, we will be tougher!

Run against the wind, then with it,
