Earlier this month, Atlanta Runner’s Blog debuted as part of the Atlanta Track Club’s revamped web site. The blog promises to cover a variety of topics, from nutrition and recipes to coaching tips and local race coverage. It’s a welcomed update from the former ATC site, which was informative but dated in its look and structure. So far, ATC has delivered quite of bit of interesting content on its blog. My favorite? The post about products to help combat odor in your shoes and running clothes. Be sure to read the comments – I learned a few more tips about deodorizing sweaty clothes. And speaking of comments, there appears to be a bug in the comment tool that makes it a bit challenging to read the comments. But I’m sure that will be fixed soon.
Along with the blog, there’s a comprehensive list of road races in the Metro Atlanta area plus a selection of events around the South. If you like running with others, be sure to check out the list of local running groups. Regardless of where you live or work in Atlanta, you’re likely to find a group that’s near your location.
It’s great to see ATC grow its voice online. Atlanta has a big population of runners, many of whom will appreciate the insights that ATC has to offer.
