On January 1st 2013, the BoldRunning training club will become Revolution Running. The BoldRunning club originates from the BolderBOULDER 10K race as its official training program, gradually developing into a year round club training for many other races.
Over fifty guests attended the open house at the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine on Tuesday May 8, 2012 to celebrate their recent partnership with Hudson Training Systems.

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the connective tissue on the bottom surface of the foot extending from the heel toward the toes. The pain is usually characterized by extreme pain and stiffness upon initial weight bearing in the morning, with the intensity decreasing as the foot “warms up.” Typically, plantar fasciitis is caused by stress to the plantar tissue resulting from increased activity, intrinsic muscle fatigue or weakness, chronic overuse, or a repetitive pull on its origin.

Runners love to run but this passion can take its toll on a body. Tight muscles, torn tendons and joint pain plague many dedicated runners because they do not have enough flexibility and core strength to prevent these ailments. Practicing yoga is an effective way to protect against injury and improve running performance without extra mileage.
