2018 HOKA ONE ONE RunBlogRun Spring Training, 800m-5000m, week one, day 6, find a race

| 0 Comments

I loved this time of the season. During the winter, I would either race indoors or outdoors at all comers. I either ran 3000 meters or 2 miles. I loved the simplicity of the race, eight laps on a 400 meter track, or 22 laps on a short 160 meter track. I liked to race often, and this distance helped sharpen me for the spring races that mattered. It was also short enough that it did not beat me up.
