With race day fast approaching, we've come to our 4th and final HMBIM Course Tour hosted by the Coastside Running Club and Sunday Run Group.  Take this wonderful opportunity to come out and meet the runners you'll be sharing race day moments with on your big day - it's amazing how a friendly smile from someone you recognize from the tours can put a little giddy-up in your step! This Saturday we'll run a "mini" HMBIM of sorts.  First we'll do 5 miles out-and-back on the Southern portio…

HMBIM Course Tour #2

Aug 13, 2013
Category:

Has 2 weeks passed already? Wow, time is flying by and so are the training miles (hopefully)! With 2 weeks passing we're due for another Coastside Running Club sponsored HMBIM Course Tour.  Lace up those trainers and come out to run with a great group of Coastal locals. Starting this tour I'm asking that everyone register for the FREE event.  Logistically this allows me to plan properly to get everyone the tour they deserve. When: Saturday August 17th at 9:00 AM Where: 371 Prin…

Happy almost August everyone. Although I (Franz) may be a little late to rev-up the HMBIM Course Tour engine I know eveyone has been training to perfection in preparation for our 2013 HMBIM event.  While you're out there working hard and logging the miles, so are we! One of my favorite traditions for past HMBIM event has been the course tours. I mean what can beat showcasing our wonderful course, making new running friends, and then seeing them victoriously cross the finish line on race day…

HMBIM - Race Day Tips

Sep 16, 2012
Category:

Race day is officially 1 week away and what a wonderful HMBIM running season it’s been. I want to thank each runner that has been a part of the HMBIM Course Tours, read the Training Blog, or has sent me emails about training. Opening your experience to fellow HMBIM runners, the Coastside Running Club, and myself forges a bond that strengthens us all. It’s a goal of the HMBIM staff to provide a stage for each and every runner to be great, to write their own race day story of success a…

HMBIM Training Finale!

Sep 03, 2012
Category:

For the final course tour weekend, I’ve put together a 2 event series that I’m really excited about. Through this year’s runs I’ve noticed two groups of runners emerge that, for me as a coach and HMBIM Course Tour organizer, create a challenge in bringing an experience that supports the overall HMBIM experience. To better devote myself to these two type of runners I’ve decided split the remaining training runs into two formats.  Come to one or both!Course Tour …

Jen Pfeifer is an amazingly talented runner that spent much of her youth right here in Half Moon Bay, CA. In last year's HMBIM she ran the marathon in 3:05:55, 6th place overall and 1st place female! A quick search on marathon results reveals that Jen's marathon PR is at least a 2:46:20! Needless to say she is not only amazing but consistantly amazing through the years. She also runs ultramarathons, recently completing the Western States 100 in a PR time of 21:31:20 (yes, that's 21 hou…

I had the pleasure of interviewing last year's HMBIM men's winner, Scott Dunlap.  Scott is an extremely talented "local" runner from Woodside, CA that excels not only in marathons but also ultramarathons; he's no stranger to the 100 mile mountain run or the big city marathon. On course you'll often see him taking picures (yes, while racing) then bound past you with a smile and a "good job". After finishing you'll probably find him along the finisher's chute with a recovery drink and his 2 k…

We’re a little over 5 weeks from HMBIM race day!  How exciting. Distance and goal dependent you’re probably ‘adventuring’ into the heart of your training.  You’ve been meticulously logging miles (or hours) building yourself up for Sept. 23rd’s big day.  Take a moment and congratulate yourself; no, really.  It’s not easy this day in age with kids, jobs, school, … life in general, to set aside blocks of training time. Great job -…

[Franz - HMBIM] Joesph Chlubna, Owner of Coastal Lifestyles Health & Fitness, thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me about the importance of cross-training while training for the Half Moon Bay International Marathon.  Speaking from personal experience, I love to run and if I could, running would be the only thing I'd do to prepare for a race.  However, over the years (and injuries) I've learned that cross-training is a vital component to, not just stayin…
