A New Sport and Running Event Hits the Roads of America
Date:5/15/2013

he Double has been called a runner’s chess match on the road in shoes, short and a singlet. The idea is to pace yourself properly through both segments, factoring in the recovery break, to record your best aggregate time – or at least do your best against your competition, for even in the Double you’re not just running against the clock but also against other runners.
