“The trail is the thing, not the end of the trail. Travel too fast and you miss all you are traveling for.” — Louis L’Amour
“Believe that you can run farther or faster. Believe that you’re young enough, old enough, strong enough, and so on to accomplish everything you want to do. Don’t let worn-out beliefs stop you from moving beyond yourself.” — John Bingham
The last time I had a running coach was also the last time I had a locker. Being a part of my high school’s track team allowed me a free education in drills, strength training, and various types of runs.
“Something magical happens when you take control of your thoughts. You realize you are your own creation. Moment to moment, who do you want to be?” — Deena Kastor

As we say goodbye to 2018 and welcome 2019, many of us are busily plotting and planning the months to come. Instead of resolutions each year, I like to set yearly goals.
From a pair of races in the port city of Cancun on the Gulf of Mexico, to runs that look onto the Pacific Ocean from the beaches of Mazatlán, races that’ll make you want to run south of the border.
From the city streets of Portugal’s capital city of Lisbon to the wilds of Serra do Açor, a remote protected landscape in Piódão, some truly unforgettable half marathon races for your running wish list.
