Not all electrolyte replacement products are the same, not even close. Jen has been running a while, but she hasn’t ever trained for marathons.

At any given time, a percentage of runners will be suffering from a not so uncommon running malady, loss of their running mojo, the state of being without motivation, of feeling more like sitting than running.

MFR 124: Half Marathon Magic

11/25/2017

Unless you live in a very remote area, you likely can choose from several half marathon options every month because with every passing year, we see more halves, and that’s not surprising because they are, I think the ideal race distance.
