Braden Currie: the run session that changed everything

How well do different drinks really hydrate you?

The lost art of pacing
This article at Runners World looks at how stepping away from your GPS watch can force you to race smarter. It also talks about predictor races where you are not allowed to wear a watch, and the person closest to their predicted finishing time is the winner. If you're looking for a race like this, check out the Nelson Striders Half Marathon and 10K in December.
Another article about Rigby the dog
A couple of weeks back, I posted a link to an article about what we can learn from Rigby the Dog and I stumbled across another interview with Matt about running with your dog here at the Eukanuba blog. Running with your dog can be so much fun, so be sure to check out the Tails & Trails run on 27 October.

NZ Mountain Running champion Sabrina Grogan has enjoyed a meteoric and unlikely athletics journey over the past four years. Steve Landells charts the rise of the South Island-based athlete here at Athletics NZ; she's set to represent NZ at next month's World Mountain Running Championships in Andorra.
