Every other week I've been going into Calgary to race in a cross country series hosted by the Calgary Roadrunners. The trail races are about 8 km and are a great way to see parts of Calgary that I never knew existed! They only cost $10 and are the best way for me to get some speedwork under my belt as I'd never run that fast by myself or with friends; the Calgary folks are speedsters so I'm guaranteed to get a lung burner! Afterwards they offer soup, bread and coffee and everyone brings a dessert so it also gives me a good excuse to do some baking every couple of weeks!


  1. How fun! I wish I had more racing opportunities -- it alwasy encourages me to get in better shape.

  2. Sounds like tons of fun and racing a lot is the just the best way to train efficiently.

  3. I agree - I would never run the same way by myself so races are valuable for pushing the envelope. Those short races are killers though!
