Cross training is essential for a successful, injury-free race…right?! I sure hope so, because that is currently my game plan for this upcoming marathon. Donâ€™t get me wrong, Iâ€™m still running! But Iâ€™m not running nearly as much as I thought I would be considering how many times I threatened myself + my lack of training during the Steamboat Marathon last year. Iâ€™ve been active + playing outside a lot lately, more often than not with my running shoes on my feet; however, Iâ€™m not always doing the whole arms pumping + legs churning running thing while Iâ€™m out there. #GameOnPGH, right?!
