TNF EC50 – A bitter end of the 2015 season

December 8th I’m moving at a painfully slow pace down one of San Francisco must popular streets for tourists and weirdos alike. Haight street.

Mise en perspective des objectifs

La finale du The North Face Endurance Challenge 50 miles fût pour moi bien plus qu’une course de clôture de saison. Pour commencer, il s’agissait de la première course sous l’étendard du Team New Balance . Un premier test de forme après 5 courtes semaines d’entrainement spécifique qui me donneraient une idée du potentiel à […]

Redefining goals

The TNF Endurance Challenge 50 miles in San Francisco has been much more than the last race of my 2013 season. To begin with, it was my first race as a New Balance athlete, and thus first fitness test after 5 weeks of specific training with my new coach to have a preview of what […]
