Also Ran – Part IV

By Rohit Grover Is running marathons necessary? In the time since I’ve started running, I have realized that the distance isn’t as important as the effort — even a 5k race can be a gut-buster if you run it with maximum effort. This wasn’t obvious to me in the beginning, with some fellow runners heaping [...]

Also Ran – Part III

By Rohit Grover A marathon before you’re 40 is impressive, but isn’t it more impressive to run one after 40?

However, by the beginning of 2016, that experience was a distant but embarrassing memory, and I was eager [...]

Also Ran – Part II

If Shamrock was hilly, this was about as flat as it gets. I think we climbed up and down off the levee, once. The [...]

This means all members will now get 20% off of all New Balance merchandise at any Foot Traffic location. As an additional bonus, we now have a [...]

Also Ran – Part I

By Rohit Grover My name is Rohit, and I am a runner. I came to running late in life. I am not the fastest runner I know (by far), and will never be as fast as many of the people I run with. The fastest I have come to running a marathon under 2 hours [...]
