Dave’s Sunday Post

By | Running Posts | No Comments

I was one year removed from high school, standing at the far side of the Westminster High School track.  A low wire gate was the only thing separating me from the outside lane.  It was 1980, and local tracks were still untouched by the metric system.  One lap was 440 yards or exactly one-quarter of a mile.

On the other side of the track, runners lined up for the Tri-State Conference mile.  I was there to watch.

Run Moore January Newsletter

By | Running Posts | No Comments

Like most people, I try to come up with some form of self-improvement in January. Most of the time, it’s running related. One of the many things I love about running is that it’s ever-evolving and never finished. Much like speed-work, you’re only limited by your imagination. There is always something to learn and tweak. I love the journey of trying new things and tinkering around with my plans to determine what is working and what’s not. Last year I made a commitment to getting to the trails more, and I really enjoyed it, and now I make it a part of my typical plan. Even shoes I ran in last year now don’t feel the same because my training and body are different, so that requires me to evaluate and figure out how to make my runs better.

Thanks for another great year at Run Moore. It’s a thrill to be here serving the running community. Wishing you and your family a happy holiday season.

This year, I set a modest mile goal and I am happy to say that as of now I’m on pace to hit it. While plugging away at my year goal I also completed another marathon and did more races in general than I have in years. From a running perspective, this was a great year and I am hoping to continue this trend next year.

If you haven’t already, take some time to do a 2018 evaluation set some 2019 goals. If you had a running goal for 2018 and you didn’t hit and you’re unsure why than come talk to us. Maybe you need some more structure in your program, or to increase your long run, or slow down your daily pace. There are a ton of reasons that things don’t go as planned. Take some time to think about why you didn’t get where you wanted to go as well as setting realistic goals for next year will keep you engaged and training all year.

Thanks for sharing another year with Run Moore.

It’s funny how when you get in the final taper for the big race, and you finally have time to sleep, your brain refuses to let you do so. When the miles are high, and you want to sleep standing up, you can’t because you have to train. Then you get to the stretch when you should be able to relax, and your brain wants to pester you with race worry. The joys of racing! Read More

September Newsletter 2018

By | Running Posts | No Comments

I was listening to a podcast over the weekend, and they discussed how kids who play video games have a hard time transitioning into physical sports—specifically, kids who find themselves on unsuccessful teams. The point was that kids playing, say, an NFL game on Xbox tend to turn off a game when losing. Down a TD in the second half? Just hit reset and play until you win. Don’t allow the loss to tarnish your record or memory. When that same kid plays a soccer game and their team is down a few goals, it’s hard to find the moxie to finish. They’d rather reset the game, or worse, find a new sport. Read More
