The USA Blind Athletes National Championships return to the California International Marathon this year with more runners and an enhanced reputation as a destination event for visually impaired athletes.

A field of 43 is expected for the sixth annual USABA National Marathon Championships, part of the 32nd annual CIM on Dec. 7. That’s nearly a 25 percent increase from last year.

The CIM, a 26.2-mile test from Folsom to the state Capitol, is put on by the Sacramento Running Association.


You Have Officially Run Out of Excuses

By now, I think we can all agree that exercise is key to good health and aging well. If you’re reading this website, I’ll assume that you’re a runner. As runners, we all face motivation that ebbs and flows. We have training days that are hard. Mornings that are cold and dark. Workouts where we’re the only one that shows up.

Some days our muscles are still sore from the prior day’s workout.

There are days we feel fat, hungry, cranky, lazy, and sleepy. Some days our shoes hurt our feet. Some days our feet just hurt. Some days everything hurts.
