Running Quote (New each week)
Your body provides you with constant feedback that can help improve your running performance while minimizing biomechanical stress. Learn to differentiate between the discomfort of effort and the pain of injury. When you practice listening, you increase competence in persevering through the former and responding with respect and compassion to the latter.

BRRC's Colbert Half Marathon and 4 Mile run 
Online entry:   
On September 30th BRRC is holding their 45th Autumn Classic Half Marathon (13.1 miles). However, if your training is not quite up to doing a Half Marathon, BRRC has a deal for you. BRRC is hosting a 4-mile loop on the same day and time for $20. All participants will receive a finisher's medal with award ribbons to the top three male and female winners in each age group. The coveted Sweatshirt will be available, if ordered before September 9th, for an extra $25.
Training for shorter races and taking time to integrate the training into your build up for a long distance race will absolutely provide a benefit. It will help you not only increase your baseline running pace, but will help direct the rest of your long distance racing for your season.
