Run ... bike ... run!

Want to do Racin' the Station Duathlon?  

Training starts tonight; registration still available 

 

 

 

      

 

Get Introduced to the multi-sport world with Fleet Feet's new duathlon (bike and run) training -- DUaling The Station. Kickoff for the training program is tonight at 7 p.m. at Fleet Feet and registration is still open through tonight at the store. Registration can also be found here
DUaling The Station training program is an 8-week program geared toward athletes who are familiar with walking/running and are exploring the multi-sport world without having to get into the water. Our goal race is Racin' the Station Duathlon, hosted by Team Rocket Tri Club, on Sept. 27.  The distances are a run pi (km), bike e^pi (km) & run pi (km). Translation? Run 1.95 miles, bike 14.3 miles and a final run of 1.95 miles.  The premise of this race is to "race" the International Space Station (ISS) as it completes one Earth orbit in 91 minutes & 12 seconds.  Pretty cool, huh?  But our goal will be to help you complete your first (or second) duathlon. The program will help you learn about pacing yourself for an endurance race of this distance, teach bike safety/form/skills, give tips and training opportunities for teaching your legs to go between the run and bike portions and much more with a team of dedicated coaches.  The program is led by a USA Triathlon Certified Coach along with assisting coaches that have various certifications, lots of experience and tons of knowledge to share..
Prerequisites: Can currently walk/run a 5k & own or have access to any bike. Must be at least 16 years of age to register.
Program Kickoff: Tonight, 7 p.m., Fleet Feet
Weekly group training: Mondays at 6 p.m. starting Aug. 4.  Locations will vary around Madison County each week. Long group bike rides will be on the following dates, in addition to the Monday night trainings,
Aug. 10 and 17 and Sept. 7, 2 p.m., Aug. 23 and 30 and Sept. 13 and 20, 7:30 a.m.
Cost:$90

New Swiftwick recovery compression sock now at Fleet Feet 

   

        

 

 

  

New Swiftwick Recovery Compression socks are now available at Fleet Feet. This medical grade compression sock is ideal for post race recovery, reduces swelling, provides travel comfort and prevents Deep Vein Thrombosis.  This review from Fleet Feet Racing Team member Rob Youngren: "I've tried these out. What makes them special is that, unlike other compressions socks, they aren't crazy tight around the feet and toes; more like a normal sock. This is great if you have bunions or other issues where squeezing your toes and feet isn't a very comfortable feeling. They are also super easy to get on and off. Two thumbs up from me."
