Adventures in Running the Antarctica Marathon
The Antarctica Marathon is billed as one of the most grueling marathons in the world. Having run it twice and worked it five times, my experience is that the challenge comes not just from the event itself, but from the culmination of sensational variables. For starters, it’s the world’s most challenging taper. Take a nervous runner, put them on three or more flights lasting a total of 15-24 hours to the southernmost city in the world – Ushuaia.

The Fatblaster Workout
Burn Fat and Rev Your Metabolism with the Fatblaster Workout The holidays can be a challenging time to get in quality workouts. I do fine until Thanksgiving, and then all hell breaks loose and I squeeze in shorter workouts. But getting in shorter workouts doesn’t mean you need to lose fitness along the way.

A Simple Learn to Run Program Anyone Can Do
Learning to run doesn’t have to be so complicated or hard. The key is to make it fun and keep it simple. When you do, running becomes a habit for life. I’m going to share a learn to run strategy that is so simple, I could even do it. This is how I learned to run despite hating it for years. This is also how I’ve coached newbies for years. It doesn’t involve intervals, speed, calculations or big words. It is based solely on your body and how it responds to running. In fact, it’s a plan that is customized to you…
