Hi everyone, Penny has been working with a company that’s developing wearables for runners. They’re looking for more participants and so asked that this blurb be sent out. It’s a pretty cool opportunity and experience so check it out!

“Lumo BodyTech is a smart sensor and big data company aimed at improving people’s health by solving biomechanics and movement related problems.  We are currently seeking input from active runners as we develop our next product.   We are looking for people who run at least 3 times per week, train for at least one race per year (10k, 1/2 marathon, or full marathon), and enjoy talking about their running experiences.  If that’s you, please email Charles atcharles@lumobodytech.com.  Thanks for your consideration — we promise to make it worth your while!”

The time has come, this is the week – we’re going to conquer Twin Peaks!

We’ll run from the Conservatory of Flowers on a route that will take us to the dizzying heights and mesmerizing views of the highest point in San Francisco. We can take an awesome group photo, all while building those strong, shapely legs.

We have a 6 miler, and for those training for the SF full marathon, a 12 miler, while those on the SF half schedule are up to 9 miles. For those of us running Vancouver, start of the taper, with a 12 miler this week.

Good luck to Carmel and Angela, who are running Boston on Monday! And to Ramona, who’s running Big Sur the following Sunday, April 26th.

For those running the Oakland Half next week, this week should be a taper run, an easy 6-8 miler. You could practice pick-ups, where you accelerate to race pace for a mile at a time, just to practice the speed at which you hope to be racing next week.

For those in maintenance mode, or gearing up to start on our 18-week SF Marathon and Half Marathon training program, we suggest 6 to 8 as well.

For those with spring marathons, it’s a 20-miler! Please let Jay Kloepfer know directly if you’re planning on running the 20 miler, as we may alter the starting time to suit the expected warm weather.
