Cross Training for Runners

Highly considering the fact that runners need to cross train.  In that vein I’ve decided to join a class called “Urban Fit.”  I’ve chosen this class over other classes around the Tulsa area due to the fact of convenience and the body’s need for cross training and strength development.  All this in hopes of improving my running time.  Tomorrow will be my first day to try it out.

The meeting location is only 5-7 minutes from home depending on traffic. 


It’s being held in the Blue Dome district of the downtown area.

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

Gorgeous Day for a Jog with The Dog

The day was gorgeous in Tulsa yesterday. Took my pomeranian for a 2 mile jog. It felt good-the warmth of the sunshine and the exercise.

Warmth, sunshine, and endorphins make me feel happy.

Warmth and heat has health and healing benefits. It increases the circulation and is used in compresses to help heal injuries. It can lessen arthritic pain.

It’s a proven fact that sunshine can calm your nerves and elevate your mood. It also helps set our internal clocks which controls our wake-sleep cycle. It can also improve mood and help regulate hormones. Exposure to sunlight can help synthesize Vitamin D. It wards off the effects of Seasonal Affective disorder which improves mood.

Endorphins are released during intense exercise and can produce feelings of exhilaration and can ward off depression and stress.

So there you have it. Now you know why warmth, sunshine, and endorphins make me feel happy.

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,100 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Run in Your Underwear

Undie Run

The Idea – When the organizers of TATUR (Tulsa Area Trail & Ultra Runners) meet and brainstorm, we often try to focus on two goals. One, how can we put the fun back in running (hence our tagline – Puttin the Fun in Run). Two, how we come up with an event that has the possibility to raise a mountain of money to help out a fantastic charity.

The Charity – The Undie Run was born, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association was declared to be our major beneficiary. Please read below to learn more about the MDA. Leon’s is proud to partner up with the Undie Run and believes in our mission.

The Goal – We hope that all of Tulsa will stand behind us in our goal to have 20,000 Undie Runners in 2013. We firmly believe that this event can make a huge difference in many kids’ lives who are living with Muscular Dystrophy as well as bring a wealth of income to the city of Tulsa.

Run in your underwear
