Try Something New This Year!
 
,
 
The start of a new year is always a great opportunity to try new things, which is why we always encourage everyone to take a break from running on the road and give trail running a try. Anything new can be intimidating but it doesn't have to be if you have friends join you. Over the next several weeks we'll have quite a few FREE opportunities for you to join us on the trails without any fear of being lost or left behind. We'll introduce you to terms like "Riking" (run/hike) to conserve energy, because it's not how fast you go, but how you enjoy the journey. So come on out and join us at the Cochran Mill & Ragnar course previews. If you're ready to tackle the trail, you can sign up for the Dirty Spokes Heritage Park or Cochran Mill trail races. If you like the team aspect and fun environment, gather a group of friends and sign up for the Ragnar Trail - Atlanta event. Make 2019 the year you challenge yourself while still having a great time!

The RUNATL Podcast - Episode 44
This week on the RUNATL Podcast Mike & D2 sit down with Christian Griffith, an accomplished Ultrarunner & Adventurer that has cheated death and pushed his body to the limit. This conversation is raw, powerful and unapologetic, as he shows all of us how he’s channeled his emotions to serious accomplishment, while still encouraging others to stand up to their own demons - - as he continues to stand-up to his.
