How to Start Running
Welcome to IRUNONBEER's guide on How to Start Running! My hope is that this guide will give you quick and straightforward tips on how to start building a running routine as fast as possible. I RUN ON BEER was created to help grow the community of "Beer Runner's," and running is often the more challenging half of that. I hope this guide makes it a bit easier for you![...more]

Race Training Has Begun
As of Monday, July 10, I have officially begun training for the Rock 'n' Roll Montreal Half-Marathon which is a pretty big deal since I haven't trained for anything really this year. I've had a hard time sticking with training plans recently which has led to some pretty challenging half-marathon attempts. Since I signed up for the Rock 'n' Roll 3-pack tour pass this year, I know I've got two races left to go so I'm hoping this training period will go a little better than[...more]

Strava #MyMile
I heard about the Strava #MyMile sweepstakes early in the month and knew I had to give it a try. I’ve only been running long distance recently, and during training, I’ve been focusing on slower more comfortable runs to rebuild a solid base without risking injury. I knew I’d set some pretty solid mile times in high school but couldn’t tell you what they were, or[...more]

Lost in the Woods
This past weekend, I took to the woods in upstate New York for a weekend of camping and hiking with my friend Eric. What we were expecting to be a relaxing afternoon hike took a bizarre turn when we reached the end of the trail and realized we were 10 miles from camp with no cell signal and limited daylight.

XX2i Bahamas1 Review
Every runner who's ever gone on a run in the daylight (so most of us) knows the pain of trying to find a pair of sunglasses that are comfortable to run in. Before receiving the XX2i Bahamas 1 Sunglasses through Bib Rave, I had a pair of more casual shades that often bounced when I ran, didn't fit with my over-ear headphones, and fogged up frequently. For all of these reasons, I jumped at the chance to try out a new pair of sunglasses and XX2i did not disappoint![...more]

Global Running Day 2017
This past Global Running Day I, along with many others across the globe, went for a run. This year was different for me than years past; I felt more committed to celebrating and sharing the holiday with others. I immediately joined the Facebook groups, signed the online pledge, and started combing the internet for stories about what others were planning to do, and then I realized[...more]

Top 5 Beer Blogs
I haven't had too many craft beer adventures of late so I've noticed the blog has been leaning much more towards the running side of I RUN ON BEER than the craft beer. That said, I decided to keep this week's post short and sweet for you. Here are my top 5 favorite blogs that can help you get your craft beer fix while I plan my next adventure![...more]

Become a Morning Runner

I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination which is a constant struggle as a runner because, as other runners are always reminding me, mornings are THE BEST time to run. This poses a problem for someone like me because it takes me about an hour or two to really feel awake in the morning. Despite this, I've decided to give morning running a shot! Why am I putting myself through this? Two real reasons. First, people have been telling me FOREVER that your life becomes so much easier if you... [...more]

Set Adrift
So far this year I've had a lot more success keeping up with my running goals and not skipping workouts. Don't get me wrong, I'll still miss the occasional run if something comes up but I've been hitting my monthly mileage goals with relative ease. The last few weeks, however, that all went out the window. A lot of factors contributed to my lack of running, but I think the biggest overall factor was that my daily routine collapsed. I've been away the last couple of weekends and working extra hours at work so my time spent at home has[...more]

We Run On Beer

I started I RUN ON BEER to help grow and connect the community of Beer Runners across the globe. My hope is that our new "Why We Run On Beer" series will be an opportunity to highlight members of that community, and to allow them to share their unique stories. Who better to kick off the series than my friends Breanna and Caroline over at We Run On Beer![...more]
