Running is my first love. I have raced ultra-distance competitively since 1990, my main event the challenging Comrades Marathon (87km) in South Africa, considered one of the world’s top ultra-distance races. Going long has been my forte right from the outset, running my first ultra within a year of beginning running. I still love competing, however secondary to enjoying every minute on the road or preferably trail.

Lunch-time Yoga for Triathletes
~ starting January 26th, 2018, 12:00 – 1:00 pm
In this class we focus on using Yoga to improve functional strength and flexibility, as well as posture and breath, specifically for runners, cyclists, and swimmers!
If you are overly tight in specific parts you are obstructing muscle groups that are essential to optimal functioning. Muscles with a good range of motion are capable of applying more force than muscles that don’t. Tightness in the core/torso, hips, and legs restrict not only efficient technique and good aerodynamics but also impairs your ability to breathe efficiently, and consequently impeding endurance.
