Running Through Grief

The post Running Through Grief appeared first on iRunFar. Earlier this month, after a lengthy illness, my father, Robin Wilkins, passed away at the age of 80. I was alone by his side when he died and while it was brutally sad in the moment, there was something relieving about his passing as well. Truly, it felt to me like he was moving on to a better place. Like many fathers of sons, my dad was a lifelong supporter of my athletic pursuits. From little league baseball, to intercollegiate golf, ...

Brighten Your Runs with a Petzl Headlamp

The post Brighten Your Runs with a Petzl Headlamp appeared first on iRunFar. Today marks the autumn equinox, where in the Northern Hemisphere, the days become markedly shorter as we move toward winter. While that means less sweating during runs in the mid-afternoon sun, it also means we get to enjoy running in the dark. Whether that’s because you’re an early bird, up before sunrise as the leaves start to fall, or you prefer to crunch through new snow in the twilight after work, the darker time o...

Trailhead Vehicles: Pri the Prius

The post Trailhead Vehicles: Pri the Prius appeared first on iRunFar. There’s nothing better than a vehicle bought new that stands the test of time — going through all the growing pains, life journeys, and bumps and bruises along the way while seeming to live forever. Bryon Powell, founder and Editor-in-Chief of iRunFar, has such a vehicle in his beloved 2004 Toyota Prius, affectionately named Pri. Also known as the iRunFar Car, Pri has survived and thrived in multiple cross-country (and intra-c...

What the Heck is Heart Rate Variability?

The post What the Heck is Heart Rate Variability? appeared first on iRunFar. When I was 15 years old, I fell in love with cross-country skiing. And when I say fall in love, I mean head-over-heels, jump-in-with-two-feet love. I bought my first heart-rate monitor strap and started to keep a detailed training log that included things like total training hours, how many minutes I skied at different intensities, and my morning resting heart rate. Combined, these tools helped me monitor my training lo...

Near and Far

The post Near and Far appeared first on iRunFar. I sit in the quiet of the desert, music playing softly from my phone as a breakfast pudding bubbles away on the stove. It’s a scrappy meal, as I’ve neglected going to the grocery store for a few days. A hodge-podge of milk, water, chia, flax, overripe bananas, and Hershey’s chocolate syrup: it’s nothing fancy, but goes down just fine. I sit and think. Sometimes it feels hard to find words with which to fill this space. I start down one trail, then...

2021 Tor des Géants Results: Franco Collé and Silvia Trigueros Win

The post 2021 Tor des Géants Results: Franco Collé and Silvia Trigueros Win appeared first on iRunFar. The 2021 Tor des Géants kicked off September 12 in Italy with participants looking to tackle the 330-kilometer (205-mile) route over the course of seven grueling days. Adding to the challenge, the event does not break the course up into designated stages — each runner must decide where and when to rest, refuel, and forge ahead during the race. Touted as the first race of its kind to cover an en...

Near the Pinnacle of Peak Bagging: Whiley Hall Trains for Ultras by Summiting Hundreds of Peaks

The post Near the Pinnacle of Peak Bagging: Whiley Hall Trains for Ultras by Summiting Hundreds of Peaks appeared first on iRunFar. When Whiley Hall reaches the summit of the 13,500-foot Telluride Peak in August, during a casual training run with me tagging along, she pauses to identify the San Juan Mountains encircling us as if she’s introducing old friends. “That’s Kismet, Cirque, Teakettle, and Coffeepot,” she says, pointing northward to the peaks next to the better-known, 14,150-foot-high Sn...

The Trappings of Magnanimity

The post The Trappings of Magnanimity appeared first on iRunFar. It is early in the morning. The skies are dim, and I am tightening my shoelaces for the third time. The race director makes announcements, then calls the runners to the start line. He asks for the fastest runners to come to the front and everyone else to file in behind. This way, slower runners will not impede the faster ones when the gun goes off, and those in contention will have fair starting positions. This is an odd moment if ...

Today’s Outfit: Relance Running Shoes from France

My daughter and I were just talking about signing up for Gourdy’s Pumpkin Run because Instagram and Facebook have been showering me with their ads. And let’s face it, that pumpkin hoodie and finisher medal looks really cool. If you carry a pumpkin for the run, you get the Tough Pumpkin finisher medal. I’m thinking that’s worth a shot! Every runner knows, the key to a good 5k is a great pair of RUNNING SHOES! That’s why French company, Relance, set out to make the most comfortable runnin...

The 10 Commandments of Healthy Running

The post The 10 Commandments of Healthy Running appeared first on iRunFar. As I approach 10 years as a columnist for this fine publication, 12 as a licensed physiotherapist, nearly 20 as a coach, and — gasp! — about 30 as a runner, my concept of what it takes for healthy, sustainable running becomes increasingly clear. During those years I’ve had the privilege of racing against, treating, coaching, and otherwise observing many runners who are not only among the very best, but who are also the m...
