HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEK!   Wishing you all a wonderful and safe Halloween week!  We had a blast last night at the Y’s Inaugural Halloween Fun Run and Bike Ride through Downtown Boise!  Several Bandanna Team members wore costumes and enjoyed the glow sticks, Great Harvest Bread and West Side Drive-In prizes at the FINISH!  Thank you to all Y Staff Members for another great family-friendly event!  There were so many great events yesterday, and not enough of us to experience all of them.  Congratulations to ALL XC Athletes and Parents.  The State Cross Country Meet is this coming week (Saturday) in Idaho Falls!  Hats off to the many athletes going to state and to all those with PR’s during the Season.  Words cannot describe just how special and unique is the sport of XC!  Best to all Athletes, Coaches and Parents!  A BIG shout out to Dave Mills, Boise Cross Country Coach.  Dave is retiring after many, many years of coaching XC and Track.  Dave . . . you will never realize the amazing and positive impact you have had on so many athletes and parents over the years.  Wishing you only great things ahead!
This week is pretty special for Mr. H and myself . . . we celebrate our Anniversary on Halloween.  We regret that we will not be running the NYC Marathon this year, but wish all of those running a remarkable experience.  This should be a special year given all that was involved in the difficult cancellation last year and recovery/rebuilding that has taken place since Hurricane Sandy!  Grab a pair of shoes and change your life!

PRODUCT NEWS . . . FUN AND FUNCTIONAL UNDERWEAR!  

 

MOVING COMFORT WORKOUT BIKINI . . .

Available in three terrific colors (velvet mystique (pictured), cove and the always reliably sexy . . . black).  The Drilayer nylon front and Powermesh back keep you dry while the seam-free bonded edges minimize panty lines.

BROOKS EQUILIBRIUM BRIEF . . .

This is guys running underwear . . . dull, boring and uninteresting, but it is black (sexy?).  Made with Brooks’ soft moisture-transfer, Equilibrium fabric, this brief holds them in and keeps them dry.  The front panel is smooth for better support (no “Y front”), and the seams are kept to a minimum so chafing is not an issue.  For even better support, go down a size as these tend to run a bit roomy.  Most importantly, they’ll make you look “put together” in your tights at your next event/race!

 

 

NIKE PRO COMBAT SIX INCH COMPRESSION SHORT . . .

For great support and the prevention of thigh chafing all in one, this is your underwear.  Lightweight all-over, four-way stretch fabric provides mobility and ultimate moisture management.  The built-in front “pouch” offers maximum support for maximum performance and comfort (note: if you hurdle, wear these).  Contrasting flat-seam construction looks great too!  And . . . if you’ve been at all observant, the kids are wearing these under EVERYTHING!

 

GREAT NEWS:  ALL available @ BANDANNA!

TIP(S)/ADVICE . . . HOW CAN I LEARN TO RUN FASTER WITHOUT GETTING HURT? 

Per mile pace, mile times and marathon times are not indicators of who is or is not a “real” or serious runner.  When you go out the door and start moving faster than you walk, you are running and you are a runner!  What can you do to pick up your pace, learn to run a little faster, but not get injured in the process?

  • On any given run, get warmed up for 10 – 15 minutes.
  • Find a point ahead where you are going to start picking up your pace (running faster!).  Driveways, mailboxes, telephone poles, trees, all make easy points to start, then pick another point about 100 feet further on where you will slow down again.
  • When you reach you’re starting point, start running faster.  Now here is the trick to getting this to work:  Running faster does not mean sprinting!  It can be a barely perceptible pace change.  Shorten your stride a bit; move your arms in a quicker rhythm to keep pace with your legs and off you go.
  • When you get to your end point, slow down and resume your usual pace.  Do not stop and walk.  Take your time, get your breathing back to a comfortable rhythm and look for your next starting and ending points.
  • Do this 4 – 6 times during your run (twice/week) and over the days and weeks you’ll start to run faster and longer during these bursts. Pay attention to your form (relax your shoulders, keep your arms pumping smoothly, work on the rhythm of your breathing).  The goal is that over time you will notice that your average run pace is increasing.
This is also a great way to snap yourself out of those runs where all you want to do is stop and walk (assuming you’re not guilty of over training and simply need some rest and time off)!
