Vulcan Run Prep

The BTC could use your help!

We need to fold the Vulcan Run t-shirts before they are stuffed into the race packets. And the race is quickly approaching!

Between now and November 5th, we'd really appreciate any amount of time you can help out during Trak Shak’s business hours 10am – 6pm (7pm on Wednesday).

Volunteers just need to ask the Trak Shak folks to unlock the doors to the space next door to the Trak Shak.

Thanks!

Guest Blog: "Things I've Learned in 35 Years of Marathoning"

BTC Guest Blogger, Al Dimicco, shares his insights about training for the marathon on his blog, TRAINING WITH AL. For the past 25 years, Al has coached mostly novice long distance runners with an approach that there's no magic to running a marathon -- just dedication, consistency, a little knowledge of exercise physiology, and mostly the avoidance of "doing something stupid."

In his most recent blog, "Things I've Learned in 35 Years of Marathoning", Al shares a few of his most basic pearls of wisdom about training for a marathon.
