Ex couch potato turns UltraWoman

True, cardiovascular endurance and overall running economy are very important to my UltraWoman goal. However, building foundational strength now- results in raw power and reduced injury risk so that I will be able to log those big miles later on. Longer, leaner and faster. Long distance and Ultra racing require a strong, whole body in order to sustain the endless hours of repetitive pounding, climbing, descending all without breaking down and losing form. Identifying then addressing weak areas before you go big makes perfect sense.

Paddling the Ocean Blue: Sea Kayaking on the Central Coast

We floated through the ocean swell dipping our paddles gracefully as we glided by the coastline of Santa Barbara County. Our destination on our sea kayaking tour was El Capitan Beach where we would disembark, take our camping gear out of the kayak’s cargo hold, and spend the night at the campground. So far we had covered about six miles and the paddling was easy and uneventful. Suddenly something broke through the surface of the water on either side of our little band of kayakers. “Dolphins,” somebody cried. Sure enough a pod of Pacific dolphins were joining us on our journey.

Racing for the future of racing

When Alex Ho, a personal trainer based in San Francisco, won the Paso Robles Harvest Marathon last year with a time of 3:01:06, it couldn’t have been too big of a shocker. He had trained for two or three months, and had just come off of training for an Ironman 70.3 triathlon. He has also taken first place in the Sierra Recon Mud Run, and recently came in ninth place in a 100-mile race.
