Improvements in fitness occur when the body is recovering from the rigors of training, not during the actual run. That’s when the body is being challenged and broken down. This is why it’s important to recovery properly, ensuring that tough workout will improve fitness during a training cycle.
Here at Gone For A Run, we consider running as a way of life. There are all kinds of runners: marathon runners, casual runners, experienced runners, beginning runners, returning runners, even runners who don’t like to run but do it because their friends do. Not everyone who aspires to the running life succeeds in being a habitual runner.
"Running with Purpose" can mean many things. Let me start by saying that having a purpose in anything you do is one of the most contributing factors to overall success. Having purpose in running puts training in perspective. It's present when you need to be reminded of your goals, whatever they may be.
These socks are more than just pretty colors with nice sayings. Woven from a moisture-wicking synthetic fiber that keeps feet dry and lessens the possibility of blisters, they feel soft and comfortable. Padded foot contours provide arch support, and terry loops throughout the sole add extra cushioning to help offset the impact on the feet when they hit the ground. The low cut means these socks work well with shorts in the summer or full-length running tights in the winter, and the tab at the back of the ankle keeps the sock in place and has extra padding to reduce irritation from heel friction.
The Imogene Pass Run is a point to point mountain race that takes place every September in the majestic San Juan Mountains of Colorado. It starts in the quaint mountain town of Ouray, and finishes in the once coal mining town of Telluride, Colorado. This 17.1 mile mountain race is mostly run on a old mining dirt road, starting just below 8,000ft and climbing 10 miles to the summit of Imogene pass, which is just over 13,000ft.
