Great morning run in ATX with @scottjurek @tgaylord @injinji (at Zilker Park)
Join SFRC and @salomonrunning tonight for an incredible group run with Kilian Jornet, Anna Frost, Ryan Sandes, Emelie Forsberg, Miguel Heras, Cameron Clayton, and @maukarunner ! Demo Salomon shoes for free and hang out with the team post-run. We are leaving at 6pm for a casual 6.5 mile out and back up the last climb of The North Face 50 course. Bring a headlamp! #lightupthenight #trailrun #running #salomon #tnf50
Thanksgiving weekend and the 31st Annual Quad Dipsea in the books, a 6 min PR in 4:15:51, wraps up such a fun year of running for me and reminds me there is so much to be thankful for. Thanks to all of the Quad runners for their encouragement on race day, an absolute blast to get to see and cheer everyone 3 times throughout the race. Quad is our gem of a local trail/ultra celebration and my favorite part of the race is seeing all of the guys and gals getting their 10th, 15th, 20th Quad Finisher awards.
A big thanks to the team at San Francisco Running Company and to everyone who has supported us and believed in our vision, we are building a really special community store together, 10 months old now.. how time flies when you are having fun.
A big thanks to the Tam Tuesday crew, the best group of training partners around, we’ve shared some amazing sunrises in 2013, Fern Creek and Hogsback CR’s, and enough ridiculous smack talk with one another to easily fill the script of a really-low-budget hollywood comedy. Looking forward to the last couple runs of 2013.
All my love to Larissa and Tamzen for encouraging me daily, so excited for Rivers Adventure Days (R.A.D.!)
10 Running Holiday Gift Ideas For Your Friends, Family, and Training Partners (and some $15 stocking stuffers too!)
The SFRC T Shirt
A fitted cut and super soft to the touch. We have multiple designs, colors, and they come in Women’s and Men’s cuts.
Super-packable Jackets - Patagonia Houdini and Salomon S-Lab Light Jackets
In our climate you want a running jacket that you can pull out at a moment’s notice to keep the body and core warm by blocking wind and shedding some rain. These jackets also make for great layers in the Sierras in the summer and on trips when pack weight is a concern. Our two favorites are the Salomon S-Lab Light Jacket (sub 2 ozs!), and the Patagonia Houdini (shown below). These pack down and weigh next to nothing, but are essential to have in the gear bag. We have these in multiple colors for Women and Men!
The R8 Roller by Roll Recovery
Brett’s favorite “non-essential essential.” The R8 by Roll Recovery is an incredible device for runner’s IT bands, quads, hamstrings, and calves. Come try it out in the store to see what we mean. This is a ticket to health for 2014!
