I love racing in the fall.  The air is crisp and the daily beating from the sun is finally over.   There are so many races everywhere – I am sure we all have your favorites and come back year after year.

This is also a time to check things.  Are your sneakers too old?  Have they hit that 350-400 mile range?  How is your gear holding up?  Holes in your socks?  Supplies – do you have all your gels and creams, etc.

The winter is only 13 weeks away, sad to say.  Do you have all the winter gear you need?

This is also the time for one last push into the season – find those 2-3 races to peak before a break into your next training.

Happy running

I have been running for over 35 years, having done practically every possible racing event or distance from the 100 meters through the marathon. I competed in varsity high school cross country and track at Saddle Brook High School in the mid-1980's, varsity cross country and track at Division II Pace University and finished well over 200 road races since then, including 20 marathons with a lifetime best of 3:14:50. I was the president of the Hoffmann LaRoche corporate running team for 7 years, growing the team from 25 to over 90 during his tenure. I coached many of these runners to achieve their goals, whether they were beginners or advanced. In 2011 I was an assistant coach for the Fair Lawn Recreation track team, helping the 10 to 14 year old group. I am currently personally coaching dozens of runners, from beginner levels to advanced levels and getting them to be prepared to meet their goals.
