The 2018 Winter Olympics Begin

The 2018 Winter Olympics have begun and for the next few weeks, most of us will be cheering on our favorite athletes as they compete. While there’s no cycling in the Winter Olympics, there are definite cross-overs. For me, speed skating is most like bike racing, in particular, short track. No matter which event is your favorite, just be inspired by the hard work and determination it takes for each athlete to make it to the games. Use that inspiration to push you to a new level in your training and enjoy the high of tough, but fulfilling workouts.

Whether you plan to stay inside or head out, there are options for you. Check the listings below for a few local events.
