Death Valley Races Temporarily Banned From National Park

This quiet revelation last week came as a huge blow to endurance athletes all over the world – a ban for (at least) 2014 on athletic events in Death Valley National Park. The Badwater 135 (a 135 mile footrace from the floor of Death Valley to the portal of Mt. Whitney) is like the Boston Marathon of ultrarunning (but much more so) – and it has always taken place at and in Death Valley National Park. This is where runners come – Read more…

2013: A Year In Review

The end of the year is a great time to look back on everything that happened in the previous 12 months. A lot happened – for the blog, for my family, running and races, for travel programs, etc. So, let’s take a look at some of the high points in the year. 2013: A Year in Review For Running with Miles Running with Miles has had a very good year!

10 Missteps to Avoid on Marathon Day

I love running marathons. No matter how many I run (35 or 36 now, can’t remember the official number), I always get excited when toeing the line (don’t know why I say that – I am a good deal behind the line!). It is just a really incredible thing to think about beginning a multi-hour journey that will take me and many other runners through a city where we will see highlights and experience our own highlights and valleys.

3 Solutions for Keeping Resolutions

New Year’s Day is famously known for the beginning of resolutions. Everyone likes to make resolutions in the days leading up to it and many of these resolutions are about being more active for the new year. The desire to be more active is to help lose weight after the holiday season, to get in better shape during the slow winter months, and to get more fit (maybe to accomplish some other goal). It is very obvious about how many people make these resolutions when – Read more…

Challenge to all Travelers

One of my goals with the blog this year is to help people be more active and work on fitness goals. As someone who never ran before 2006, I know enough about life before running and life after running to know about the improvements that running can make. There are so many positives from it that it continues to push me to work harder and harder at it. One of those positives was being able to help other people begin to run and improve their fitness.

Races for 2014

I wrote this post last month but will be updating it and reposting as I make changes to it. This way you can see which races I will be running this year and if it will coincide with your race schedule.  Updated: January 2, 2014 – Tel Aviv Marathon I am starting to get better at planning races further – Read more…

Run Tel Aviv With Me!

I posted my updated list of races for 2014 and the notable addition to the list was the Tel Aviv Marathon. I would love to have some company there and to see some of you, just in case you were looking for a nice winter marathon! Tel Aviv Marathon The Tel Aviv Marathon was originally established in 1981 and was halted in 1994. In 2009, the race was again put on and has – Read more…

Pyongyang Marathon

I saw something this week about the Pyongyang Marathon that takes place in North Korea. Apparently, you can sign-up for this race through tour groups that handle all of the paperwork for you and your travel itinerary in North Korea.   Pyongyang Marathon There are certain races around the world that have a very exotic element to them – Read more…
