Featured Web Site: Time-To-Run

Posted by Filed Under: Web Sites

This week’s featured site could take a bit of time to explore. I spent a fair bit of time there and barely scratched the surface. Time-to-Run offers information on almost any topic a runner could think of and probably some you might not have thought of.

For example I clicked on Nutrition which led to subsections on: Food pyramid, Minerals, Optimal nutrition, RDA, Carbohydrates, Vitamins Explored, Fluid replacement, 10 Worst Foods, Nutrition links. 10 Worst Foods—ut oh, guess I better stop eating those potato chips.

New to running? Then you might want to check out the Beginners’ Section. It covers such topics as “10 easy tips,” “The Beginning,” “First shoes,” “First 5km,” “Stretching,” and “Beginners’ links.”

Got an injury? Then you might want to read up on The BIG Five—the five most common running injuries. Did you know the most common running injuries are Achilles tendonitis, chondromalacia (runner’s knee), iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and shinsplints? Having suffered from plantar fasciitis, I had to check out that page.

The menu bar along the top offers links to other areas of the site. However in exploring some of the links from the menu bar I did find pages that were not yet completed. For example when I accessed the Canada page under Country Sites, then selected Marathons from the left and finally selected Marathon Links it read “The links section for Canada marathons will be developed with time. “

So if you’re looking for information on a running topic, head on over to Time-to-Run.

About Dawn - Pink Chick

For several years the only running I did was to run the annual 10k race in the spring. I got my best time when I ran hungover on only a few hours sleep. Finally one year I decided maybe I should really pick up running again on a regular basis and attended a running clinic. After finishing the 10k that year I continued to train and ran my first half marathon. That was in 2002. Later in 2002 I moved to Calgary where my running friends nick-named me Pink Lady, Pinko, Pinky and finally Pink Chick simply because I almost always wore pink when I ran. Truth be known I wear it almost all the time. I ran, well mostly walked, my first marathon in 2003. Since then I've run a ton of shorter 5/10k races, 9 half marathons and I added a second marathon in 2007 when I ran the San Diego RnR Marathon. Today I still run. I'm slow but I'm still out there and lovin' it. Someday I hope to join the Triathlon world.
