The day I got my first Heart Rate Monitor was the day I started looking differently at my training. Back then I didn’t know anything about heart rate training zones or training intensity, but I felt that such device will get my training to a new level. And it sure did. 12 years and many […]
I remember watching the New York City marathon on TV when I was a kid. I didn’t really know what it was back then, but the helicopter view of the start and the Verrazano-Narrows bridge alone blew my mind. The view was unreal as it seemed to almost float over the water. After getting goosebumps […]
We all have busy agendas. Jobs, housework, meeting friends or that hiking trip to the mountains last weekend.
