The basics of running are relatively simple — one foot in front of the other, repeat, — besides a pair of shoes, you don’t need anything else to start. Just keep moving.
Lubbock has many great trails around us to get a good view as you’re running. Check out our friends at Parks and Recreation for a list of Lubbock Parks. We recommend Wagner, Maxey, McAllister, Tech Terrace and Urbanovsky.
When you’re ready to push a hobby to an obsession, there’s no tougher test than at The Buffalo Springs Lake Ironman 70.3 on June 26! Folk travel to Lubbock from all over the world to try out our course. Check out what a few of the athletes had to say about this grueling triathlon.
So get those shoes tied tight and go for a run today. Your body will love you for it. Let us know some of your favorite trails to run and if you’ll be in any races this year. If you’re more Andy Dwyer than Chris Traeger (see below), we still recommend going out to The Buffalo Springs Lake Ironman 70.3. There’s always food, funny signs and a great time cheering on these ridiculously trained athletes.
