The countdown is on for Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend, Oct. 5-7, when 30,000 runners of all ages and paces will take to the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul to celebrate health and fitness.
The Saturday events on Oct. 6 are an awesome experience for kids and family, but they’re also a wonderful occasion to gather your friends for a crisp fall morning group run.
back.of.the.pack.runner! Tracy runs with St. Paul Highland Moms on the Run, and we love what she wrote in her post: "I ran a 5K today and haven't checked my time at all. Don't think I will. It's not important to me. What is important is these ladies! Everyone works so hard — and then selflessly cheers and supports everyone else. This is what a team is about. I'm proud to be on this one." She wins a one-hour Restorative Sports Massage and one-hour Nutrition Consultation with a sports dietician at Training HAUS from Twin Cities Orthopedics. Congratulations, Tracy!

Warming up before you exercise is the most important part of training, according to platinum sponsor Twin Cities Orthopedics. In their blog, "Warm up to perform, cool down to recover," TCO offers helpful tips on proper warmups and cooldowns. Be sure to prioritize both for successful training.
