Welcome to another installment of the Oregon Brewery Running Series Podcast; Inspiring Oregonians to Be Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. We host family-friendly, 5K fun runs that start and end at some of Oregon’s best breweries.
In this episode of the podcast, I chat with Shasta Zielke, co-founder of the Rose City Track Club, who shares a few tips for taking your running to the next level.
Shasta shares that anybody can become a stronger, faster, less injury-prone runner by following these five steps.
- Get good shoes.
- Become more consistent in your training.
- Focus on gradually increasing your mileage
- Start doing some form of strength training
- Find a friend or group to train with.
Simple right? Well, you still have to put in the work, but for anyone looking to transition from a casual 5K run runner, this really all you need to focus on.
The Portland Half Marathon Training Team!
The main reason I wanted to interview Shasta, was to ask her to share some simple tips with our audience and for anyone interested in joining our 2020 Portland Half Marathon Team. You can signup here and train with us to complete the 13.1-mile race on October 4, 2020.
Way back in 2017, I chatted with Liz Anjos, co-founder of the Rose City Track Club, about a whole bunch of random stuff. This was before RCTC was a thing, and we actually recorded it on Facebook Live for some crazy reason.
