My Runner’s life – Running Blog, Garmin Coach Community and Running Gear reviews

I am a runner. I am a morning runner. I am not a fast runner. Dare I say slow runner? I’ve always kept this one sentence in my mind that I once read somewhere: No matter how slow you are, you are still lapping everyone on the couch. Or in my case, everyone who is still laying in their comfy bed as I usually leave for my morning run between 6:00 – 6:30 in the morning. This blog is meant to describe my road as a runner and how I try to improve myself. Read more about me.

The announcement came this week that the race has

10K race – Epic Virtual Run
