What is a Yasso 800?

Yasso 800s are a popular workout among runners who are trying to achieve a specific marathon goal. The name "Yasso" comes from Bart Yasso, the chief running officer at Runner's World magazine, who popularized this workout. Here's how to do Yasso 800s:

•Take your marathon goal time in hours/minutes and convert this to minutes/seconds. For example, if your marathon goal is 3 hours and 45 minutes then convert that to 3 minutes and 45 seconds.

•Try to run 800 meters (approximately 1/2 mile) in your converted time (3:45 in this example).

•Recover after each 800 by jogging or walking for the same amount of time (again, 3:45 in this example)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
