It has been 11 weeks since 3W Races hosted the Erin Go Braugh 7.77K in Westminster. That was the last in-person race to take place before governments banned events throughout Colorado.

Sweetheart City Racing hosted the Run the Ranch Trail Races at the Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch outside of Loveland.

Winning the War Against Snack Attacks

Day after day, I hear runners complain about their (seemingly) uncontrollable snacking habits. Some believe they are hopelessly, and helplessly, addicted to chocolate. Others believe eating between meals is sinful and fattening; snacking is just plain wrong. Some equate snacking to doing drugs. They bemoan they are addicted to sugar and can’t eat just one cookie. Snacking is all or nothing.

Fast forward to pre-COVID 2020, youth sports and life’s busy-ness totally disrupted dinner-times; structured meals got lost in the shuffle.
