Jersey Athletes Excel At 2015 Special Olympics

Last year, New Jersey hosted the Special Olympics and we were fortunate enough to attend some events and meet several of the athletes. It was truly inspiring to get to know them and hear their stories. Watching them compete reminded us what sports are all about.

Sports should be all about people trying their absolute best to overcome obstacles, achieve their goals and enjoy themselves. Sports should not be about overinflated balls, fireworks accidents and trade deadlines.

As the 2015 games are underway in California, we want to wish the best of luck to all our Jersey athletes, especially the runners and triathletes, of course. You are truly inspiring to us all, so go make the Garden State proud!…

Eight Tips to Survive Summer Training (Part 1)

As the mercury continues to rise on the thermometer, check out these great tips from Shannon McGinn, USTAF and RRCA Certified Distance Running Coach and the owner of Creating Momentum, LLC

US Women RUN All Over Japan!

We want to be the first (besides the President, thousands of celebrities & millions of fans) to congratulate the US Women’s Soccer Team on their World Cup Championship. It was truly inspiring to follow this team along their quest.

As always, NJ was represented well with killer performances along the way by Christie Rampone (Point Pleasant), Heather O’Reilly (East Brunswick) & Sunday’s stand-out Carli Lloyd (Delran).

We are tremendously proud of our team for representing the US with class and sportsmanship while they kicked some serious ass along the way. We all know that runners typically make phenomenal soccer players and vice-versa, so we applaud you efforts this summer “on the pitch”.
