Taking the leap over to trail running: tips from a trialed trail runner!
As a lifelong road-runner, the transition to the trail running seemed relatively straightforward. Less traffic. more vertical. Good to go! Fast forward 3 weeks into my debut to the trails, and a severely sprained ankle proved me otherwise. Biggest lesson learned: the sport of trail running is drastically different from hitting the pavement.
So, what did I do? I recovered from my humbling injury and got trail smart. With a few easy adjustments, I made a much smoother transition to #traillife and enjoyed the very best of what trail running has to offer!
It’s time to start making the most of your commute to work! Running or biking to work is a great way to reduce your personal carbon footprint, fit in a workout on a busy day and diffuse stress before/after a work day.
While traffic jams are wiped off of the commute obstacle list, active commutes present a handful of unique twists. So, in order to reap the benefits of your run/bike commute, it pays to be prepared.
As the weather warms and dries up, following a few helpful pro-tips will help you to get the most out of your newly defined “rush hour!"
For the last 10 years, I’ve ridden bicycles thousands of miles from mountain biking to road racing to cyclocross. I’m not the best or fastest, but I love cycling for the fun and the fitness that comes with it. Over the last 10 years, I’ve also run a total of about 20 miles.
Twelve weeks before my first half-marathon, I wouldn’t have considered myself a “runner”. (For those cyclists who aren’t familiar, running is what you do when you get a flat tyre at the Tour de France.) I thought that committing to a 12-week training plan would be a good challenge. Even if, at the time, the thought of running 6, 8, 10 or more miles was daunting and 13.1 miles seemed impossible. Then the running started and I learned that running is awesome.

From New England to Nor Cal, we’ve all seen a couple of sneak peaks of spring weather over the last couple of weeks. We know it might be wishful thinking, but we’re getting in a Spring-time state of mind with our newest Nuuntini.
This spin on the Blackberry Gin Sour is our Nuuntini ode to the warmer, brighter, patio-side days on the distant horizon. While February temperatures might still warrant our warmest puffy vests, you’ll find us daydreaming of shorts weather with a Blackberry Gin Sour in hand.
