Cross Training Guide


Injury is awful, and sometimes soreness turning to pain is an unavoidable part of training. We do many things to mitigate our chances of injury, but sometimes it still happens. Often we have two options. We either stay sedentary when we are unable...

Pre-Run Warm Up Drills


Too many times we roll out of bed and bust out the door for our morning runs. This leaves us feeling lethargic, stiff and uncoordinated. After long sedentary periods our brain is not efficient in communicating to our muscles and the neuromuscular ...

Seeing Training Success with a Wide View Lens


Are you guilty of using the narrow lens when thinking about your training? It is easy to do in a sport that is very much (and maybe too much) data driven. Many runners view the success of their weeks by seeing if they completed the mileage, or the...

The Perfection Problem: Trying to Play Catch-Up


In our first blog of our multi part series, The Perfection Problem: Fearing Fatigue we talked about the problems associated with not accepting fatigue as a normal piece of the training cycle. In this week’s post we want to talk about th...

Keeping Health, Fun and Speediness in a Balanced Race Schedule


Though RunningLane puts on events and does race timing, our primary job is to be the nerdiest most knowledgeable group of running coach geeks you know. We live for seeing our athletes find success at goal races, watching them improve and making su...

RunningLane Athlete Highlight: Andrea Kruszka


We love to brag on our RunningLane athletes and Andrea Kruszka is one that is easy to boast about. Beyond being a stellar athlete (Andrea ran a 1:23:04 half marathon this year in brutally cold temps!), she is a true inspiration. Last year Andrea w...


I've been running since April of 2011, and I got into it mostly for weight loss purposes.  I quickly realized that I loved running and became interested in getting better and setting goals.  Each season brings different challenges, and I like being coached by people that coach me based on my personal goals, rather than a generic website that makes us all one type of runner.  RunningLane is perfect for runners seeking specific training tailored to their own personal goals.
