Lindsey Vonn 4.2.10
Lindsey Vonn skis Vail post-Olympics. Watch her in fresh powder.
Walk, Don't Run (OK, Run A Little)
It seems counterintuitive: to run a fast 13 miles on trail, I should prepare by walking. Okay, walking and running, but only running a little bit. As in three days a week, two of which are only for a half hour. So says Jeff Galloway , a runner and coach who has been preaching the benefits of low-impact...
This Picnic Table will Kick Your Butt
I'd rather work up a sweat in the fresh air. That's easy for a cardio workout -- just grab the bike or running shoes and hit it. But when it comes to strength training, I need to be more creative. Which is why I love picnic tables. I got the idea for turning a picnic table into my own personal...
Altitude and the Athlete: Training tips
In a few weeks I will run 13.2 miles from Snowmass to Aspen, Colo. in the Golden Leaf Half Marathon. The race starts at 8,650 feet, reaches a pinnacle of about 9,620 feet, and ends at roughly 7,800 feet.

As a lifelong fitness junkie, I get stoked when a workout leaves me so sore I can hardly move the next day. By that metric...

How to train like Lindsey Vonn
One of the best parts of my job is that occasionally I get to interview really inspiring people. Like Lindsey Vonn. I talked with Lindsey in late September for a story for Elevations Outdoors . She is the best American woman skier ever, Olympic medalist (gold and bronze, 2010), three-time consecutive...
DIY ski fitness
It's officially the pre-season. High-alpine mountain bike trails are frosted over, pre-work runs are either in the dark and cold or in your dreams, and post-work is also in the dark and cold. Like it or not, it's time to go inside. Whether you're on a first-name basis with the meatheads...
