Current Issue: March 2014

Spring has arrived-at least according to the calendar. So, here's a shout out to everyone who ground out the kilometres through the polar vortex. We did it. And in the process, we built up huge mental toughness for our spring races-unless it starts to snow again, at which point, cue the tears.

This month it's all about getting into the zone. Coach Dave tells us how to get into the race day mindset with a practice race, while Dr. Mansfield gives us the skinny on using nutrition to get maximum workout benefit. Best of all, Boston Marathon Champion Wesley Korir took some time out to give us a serious dose of inspiration.

Let's go spring!
