Born to Run

Vodpod videos no longer available. What makes us happy? Are we born to run? Christopher McDougall is the author of  “Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.” He explores the mysteries of the human desire to run. How did running help early humans survive — and what urges from our ancient ancestors spur us on today? McDougall tells the story of the marathoner with a heart of gold, the unlikely ultra-runner, and the hidden tribe in Mexico that runs to live. Vid includes a quick shout out to local ultrarunner Nikki Kimball.  QOTD “64 year old men and women are now running as fast as they were at age 19!”

Viva Las Vegas!

Hey Gang!  Just wanted to keep everyone up to speed on the happenings this winter.  For those who truly want to improve in this sport, there is NO “off” season per se.  How about we take a breather, enjoy our friends and families for awhile, then jump into some fall marathon training?  This was the first week of our Wednesday runs (meeting at various locations) in preparation for the Rock n Roll Las Vegas Marathon or Half Marathon on December 6th.  Taking a page out of Michelle’s training manual, you can always incorporate some races for the sheer enjoyment of getting out and exercising.  While some may not find marathons “fun”, I would tell them that it’s all what you make of it.

First Look at Fall Training/Racing Calendar


Good morning/afternoon!  Here is a first look at what we have in store this fall.  For those who weren’t able to make the last club meeting, we have decided to add a marathon to the race calendar this winter (Rock N’ Roll Las Vegas).  In September, we will start meeting once a week for a group run.  All are welcome, but we will be gearing up for either the half or full marathon on December 6th.  Also, we will continue to meet once a week for either a road ride, or mountain bike ride (depending on the weather and trail conditions).  Look for indoor cycling to commence after the first of the year.

Autumn 2009 – Triton Training & Race Calendar

Hope everyone’s season has been going well.  From the calendar, there still is a few races that you can still jump into before the snow flies.

Happy Training,

Coach Aubrey
