When I volunteered to co-direct the Equinox training runs this year, in 2011, I immediately conjured up the idea of this blog. I wanted to give the group of people who showed up to these runs a resource of information on the Equinox Marathon, but felt ill-equipped to offer up much guidance given my own limited experience I’ve had participating in this race.
As I was training for my first Equinox, I sought out advice and tips from more seasoned runners and asked a lot of questions to prepare myself for the race and found their input invaluable. These questions serve as the basis for Equinox Interviews. My goal is to interview as many past participants as I can: young or old, fast or slow, relay or ultra, competitive or casual, runners or hikers and share their experiences with you.
I quickly discovered that people have much more to offer than their advice on preparing for this marathon and running the challenging course. You’ll definitely find some great information on running the Equinox here, but much more than that, you’ll read stories that are highly personal and passionate, incredibly fun and interesting, and truly, heart-warming.
Please share your story by participating in The Interview. Your Equinox experience is valuable!
See you on the trails!
