- Char Gore woke up to pouring rain, but decided
she wasn’t going to let that stop her from getting her run
in. Managed 3 miles with her pup in the rain.
- Char Gore has 2 wins this week! She had
her 3 month post cancer treatment appointment and all signs point
to it being completely gone! She was able to start running again in
October and said “she can feel the strength coming back - I even
love tackling hills because it is a tangible sign that I am
stronger. In 2021 I'm excited to be a beast!”
- Brenda Haskill had some great cross country
skiing lately. She said she hit 33 miles of skiing this week
for my staycation holiday! Crazy and fun. I’ll be back to
running Monday-Friday due to work and skiing on the weekend. HR
training with FPP all year sure made my ski season a lot better and
I adapted to it so fast. I’m skiing uphill like a beast right now!
- Amy Wilson got creative and added studs to an
old pair of running shoes for her winter running. She was a
beast and ran 8.7 miles in the snow!
- Trisha Thorme ran 600 miles in

- Hi Coach, I’m struggling to get in a cold
weather running groove. I find myself way over layering
trying to stay comfortable when I set out and then end up annoyed
with all the clothes I am discarding 10 min in when I get overly
warm. If I only wear what I’m happy in 10 minutes in, I find
that I can’t seem to get warmed up and am miserable the whole
run. Any suggestions for clothing/warmth

- My social media feeds are filled with adverts
for these post workout leg compression devices. Any thoughts on
these? Here's an example https://photos.app.goo.gl/w86JrhMK9fBtZkW28
- What’s your take on the racing outlook for
2021? Do you think it makes sense to start building for an
early fall marathon.
