Review: Endure Strong


Disclaimer: I received coaching from Endure Strong as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews.

If you have followed my running at all, you know that I struggle with consistency and putting the weekly miles, so when I had the opportunity to work with a coach, I figured why not.  Thinking that being accountable to someone would help me get weekday runs and workouts in.  Turns out it does...a little.  The daily emails with scheduled runs and workouts was a nice reminder to lace up.

Who is the coach?  Just U.S. Olympian  Jared Ward.  Jared is a busy human:  Professor, assistant cross country coach at BYU, dad and husband, you get the idea.  So he understands the juggling it takes to take care of our minds and bodies.  As the online coach for Endure Strong, he provides training plans, suggestions and responds to questions.  Team Manger Andrew Webb sends weekly emails to remind members of upcoming team calls and other helpful information. 

It was easy to set up my account on my laptop.  I was even able to figure out Zones, by putting in my April 14, 2019 Gazelle Girl Half Marathon results with the Endurance Nation Run Pace.  Apparently, there is an "Easy" Zone and a "Very Hard"

I introduced myself to the team on the social wall and I was officially up and going!

I was pleasantly surprised that every morning, I received an email with my daily workout.  Unfortunately, since I injured myself, the workouts had not been consistently accomplished, but with the informative blogs and podcasts, I was able to learn, while recovering.

The Wednesday night team video chats were educational and inspiring.  Even when my home wifi went down, I was able to watch the video chat the next day, while at a local coffee shop.

Logging my activity was difficult to remember, but easy to accomplish.  Funny thing is that I could not have been the only one, since Team Manager Andrew set up "Journaling" as the Challenge of the Week around the same time that I was struggling to remember.

My goal race was the MISH Waterfront Half Marathon in Gladstone, Michigan.  From my understanding, this was the second year of the race.  This year's race was well organized with plenty of water stations, which were well staffed, ample parking and plenty of restroom options, and a very scenic route. 

Unfortunately, my pace was not where I wanted it, for this race.  I do not blame anyone but myself as even though I had an amazing coach and great support system, I failed to stick to the training plan.  I can come up with so many excuses, but that is exactly what they will be:  Excuses.  I injured my lower right leg, which held me back.  I had work, family, etc obligations, which limited my ability to log the miles.  You name it and I can fault it.  Truth is, however, that I still struggle with consistency. 


Coach Ward and the daily emails were awesome.  The weekly calls were inspirational.  In order for me to reach my running goals, I have to set aside all of my excuses and log the miles.  I need to stop running 13.1 miles each month, without properly training as I know that is a recipe for slow times and injury.

If you are interested in getting serious about your race times and taking on a coach, I would certainly suggest Coach Jared Ward and Endure Strong.

Happy Running!

Review: Knockaround Fast Lanes Sunglasses

Disclaimer: I received Knockaround Fast Lane Sunglasses as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews.

I do not like it, when things get in my eye.  This includes, but is certainly not limited to rain, snow, sand, wind...you get the point.  I wear sunglasses, even when the sun is not expected to appear, not just for eye protection but also to disguise my appearance.

When I had the opportunity to test out the Knockaround Fast Lane Sunglasses, you know I jumped at the chance. 

The Fast Lanes fit snug and are thinner than other sunglasses around the ear, which allows for use with AfterShokz, which also fit over the ear and can sometimes cause discomfort, when used with other sunglasses. 

I tried out the green Fast Lanes, which matched all of my Michigan State University outfits, this was especially helpful, during March Madness.

The lenses provided sufficient protection from the sun (FDA-approved and impact-resistant lenses with full UV400 protection).   The thin arms that go behind the ear fit snug and I never needed to adjust them as a result of movement.  I also wore the glasses for a long road trip, during Spring Break, and they were perfect for driving.  I expect that these glasses will get "borrowed" by a family member in the very near future. 

The Knockaround Fast Lanes are very reasonably priced (suggested retail $15) and with the BibRave discount code of BIBRAVEKNOCKS1 will save you additional 20% (one-time use, valid until 4/18/19).

Finally, tune into #Bibchat at 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16th, with BibRave and Knockaround for your chance to WIN a pair of Fast Lanes.

Spring Break Race Idea and Race Discounts


Looking for a last minute Spring Break race?  Check out the Savannah Publix Women’s Half.

If you are driving back North, after spending time in the warmer, Southern States, this is practically on your way home and the timing couldn't be much better (the race is in less than a week)!


On Saturday, April 6th, women will have the opportunity to run down tree-lined streets, around 12 of the city's scenic squares in the historic district before a picture-perfect finish at Forsyth Park Fountain.  

Be sure to pose for that picture by the finish line before heading to the post-race party, which offers mimosas, music and so much fun.



Because of family schedules, I am unable to run this race as planned, this year, but if you would like to join in on the fun, use discount code BIBSAV20 to save 20% on your registration.

Review: Turtle Gloves


Disclaimer: I received a Turtle Gloves to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review find and write race reviews.

Winter in Michigan can be brutal, especially if you enjoy running outside. February seemed to be extra painful, with the Polar Vortex and the incredible wind and below freezing temperatures. 


I received these gloves to test in late February, so I have had about three weeks to test this product. Each time I have tested these gloves, it has been below freezing. I have to remind myself of this as when it was 30* I was so excited to go for a run, acting like it was Spring. 

I started each run in regular glove mode. My fingers felt cold for the first mile (10-11 minutes) but once my body warmed up, so did my fingers and each time, I ended up needing to poke my fingers out because my hands were so hot (sweating hot). 


The gloves allow for the rolling down of the sleeve, so it can feel like fingers are covered in fleece with a little air sneaking in or you can roll them down completely and have fingers exposed. I have had to wash them a few times (regular, cold water) with the rest of my running clothes and they came out just fine.


For me, the main appeal to these gloves is the ability to stick my fingers out. I have problems taking pictures, skipping songs on my AfterShokz, etc with regular gloves and mittens, so the ability to flip the mitten style to a long sleeve or to allow my fingers to be free was very nice. 

When I received my pair of Turtle Gloves, I was excited to learn that they are made in Michigan! Therefore, as a Michigander, I was even more excited to test Turtle Gloves!

 

These gloves come in a variety of colors, patterns and sizes.  To purchase, visit Turtle Gloves and use discount code "TurtleBibRave" for 15% Off.

Confessions of a Lazy Runner

In 2018, I ran 598.7 miles.  This is significantly less than anticipated. 

I should have know that my annual mileage would be low, especially since consistency has always been a struggle, which is the primary reason I sign up for so many Half Marathons (usually one per month):  At least I’ll get 13.1 miles in each month.

New year running resolution if I write (type) it, I must accomplish it! 

This year, I am going to set a reachable goal of 750 miles and will be celebrating like a Boston Qualifier if I end up tracking 1,000 miles for the year.

750/52 = Approx 14.5 miles/week
1,000/52 = Approx 19.5 miles/week

750/12 = Approx 62.5 miles/month
1,000/12 = Approx 83.5 miles/month

How about you:  Do you have any mileage goals for 2019?  How do you stay motivated to keep going when the blankets are so warm, the pizza is so delicious and the work day is exhausting?

Do you need help staying motivated?  Would registering for races help?

I will run in (for the 7th time) the Gazelle Girl Half in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  This event started as a celebration of Title IX, the law that made discrimination between men's and women's educational programs illegal.  The event has really grown, over the years, and has raised funds for Girls on the Run of Kent and Muskegon Counties in addition to the Gazelle Sports Foundation, Grand Rapids Opportunity for Women and YWCA. 

Last year, I ran the Savannah Publix Women’s Half and had such a wonderful time!  The route starts and ends at Forsyth Park, down tree-lined streets, around 12 of the city's scenic squares in the historic district before a picture-perfect finish at Forsyth Park Fountain.  The post-race party was like something I had never experienced:  Mimosas in Forsyth Park!  I have already signed up for this Half.  If you would like to join me, use discount code BIBSAV20 to save 20% on your registration.
