Zensah Ambassador
I’ve been using Zensah compression sleeves for about 4 years. I was excited when I was approached about becoming an ambassador for Zensah! I couldn’t recovery after my runs without them!

I signed up for my first ultra.

After  reading all the great recaps and tweets about The North Face Endurance Challenge – California, it sounded like an awesome challenge. I wanted to run it.

The North Face Endurance Challenge

The North Face Endurance Challenge has a couple of race lengths – 5k (3.1 miles), 10k (6.21 miles) , half marathon (13.1 miles), marathon (26.2 miles), 50k (31 miles), and 50 miles.

The events take place in the  Marin Headlands, the course features scenic views with some drastic elevation change.

Guess what I did? I signed up. Duh. 50k. Go big or go home, right?

This will be my first 50k AND first trail race. I’m scared, nervous, excited and can’t wait to run it!

Now it’s time to read every article and blog on training for a 50k…

Do you have a favorite blog for training for an ultramarathon?

Giveaway: Win an entry to the Berkeley Half Marathon!

Berkeley Half Marathon

What exactly is the Berkeley Half Marathon?

It is a 13.1 mile point-to-point race route that was created to show off Berkeley’s favorite spots – from the city center to the UC Berkeley Campus and the beautiful waterfront and marina, this 13.1 mile race will not disappoint. The route is flat, fast, and net-downhill, so it’s perfect for a new PR or tune-up before your next big event.

Course map is here!

When and where is the Berkeley Half Marathon?

It is on Sunday November 24, 2013 at 8:00am. The race is in Berkeley (duh!), California.
