We’re launching a new feature at The Run S.M.A.R.T. Project called, “Ask a Coach.” Anyone who has running-related questions whether your seeking advice, help or feedback on your training, just email [email protected] and one of our coaches will post the question and response to our blog. The more questions we get the more information we can provide as a resource for runners of all ages and abilities.
The 2010 Run S.M.A.R.T. Project Running Retreat will take place in Flagstaff, AZ on July 25th – July 31st. This will be a great opportunity to get away and train in the beautiful mountains of Flagstaff, heralded as one of the best places to run in the country.
