Avoid knee pain when you run in a short 1 minute video

"Running is bad for your knees"
"I can't run, my knees are bad"
"blah blah blah, knees..running"

We've heard it all before to the point where it's a common annoyance to anybody who has non-runner friends.  However, we're all human and have the same set of muscles that if not trained properly can turn you into that very person complaining about their knees.  Fret not, concerned runner.  For here is a quick easy to watch video to address these concerns, courtesy of Techinsider:

Tahoe Ultrabeast and Killington 2017

In a stark contrast from Killington, ALL THREE Regiment Elites who attended the Tahoe World Championship Ultra Beast completed the event and earned their buckle!

On the same note, it appears that registration and a date have already been opened up for the Killington 2017 Sprint, Beast and Ultra Beast weekend on the 16th and 17th of September!  If you'd like to get in on the action, you can do so here.  

The 2016 Ultrabeast story is well underway, as well as a major overhaul to the preparation article to account for high altitude and colder temperatures, so stay tuned! 

Killington Ultrabeast - The Regiment Elite aftermath

Of our five Regiment Elites taking on the VT Ultra Beast, none made it to the end. This is a gut-check that we're all too familiar with, and one that will embolden our elites to strive for redemption and then some. Expect to see these elites accomplishing great things in the near future at events like Fuego y Agua, Tahoe and the Georgia Death Race! However, our VT Regiment Elite story doesn't end there.

The beast was a course that brought the same soul-wrenching, emotionalDNF to Elite Rachel in 2015 and proved to be an immense struggle for Heidi as well. Our elites being who they are learned from this and trained even harder, backed by a new found hunger that could only be discovered by leaving behind an old visage of themselves on the mountains to make way for a new and motivated version of themselves. Despite their injuries and despite knowing full well how awful a DNF feels, they came back and took on the Killington Beast. They stuck together, motivating each other to continue towards their redemption and through grit, will and hunger they both earned their medals! Not only that, but Travis (another Elite) waited at the finish line to personally hand Rachel that medal!

Congratulations to ALL of our Killington Elites! We will see you out there once again in 2017!
