T

hink summer races aren’t worth sweating over? Think again. Here’s how you can keep cool as the temperature rises and still get in a race or two during the dog days of summer.

As Canadians, we’ll always find a reason to bemoan the weather. As runners, we’ll always want to keep on running—and despite the summer heat, we’ll want to keep on racing. As the mercury rises, however, our cooler heads need to prevail so we can race smart and avoid a meltdown. Our brains can tell when we’re overheating, and will find a way to protect our bodies. Truth be told, the human body actually has an anti-bake system that will tell us we’re fatigued so we slow down and cool off. Although cold weather is more miserable, the heat actually has a greater impact on our performance. That means in order to race well in the summer, we need to stay a step ahead of our defensive brains.

Pick the Coolest Race Around

With summer races, be picky about choosing those with the right race logistics and don’t be as concerned with—dare I say—the swag. Opting for shorter distances is a smart move, as longer distances basically give you more time to bake in the sun, sweat and heat. Early morning or late evening start times can also help by skirting around the midday heat. Look for races with frequent aid stations every few kilometres and check to see if cooling sponges or misting stations are offered. Another alternative to consider are trail races – these events are naturally shaded and avoid heat-retaining asphalt and concrete.

Become One With the Weather

Try to adapt to running in the heat. Check the average temperature and humidity forecast for your upcoming race day and schedule your runs to match those condition. This may mean adjusting the time of day of your training. It takes about two weeks for your body to become acclimatized to warmer temperatures, with the greatest degree of adjustment (and potential sweltering) happening in the first five days. In any case, plan for that acclimatization period ahead of time so you’re not sweating more buckets than you need to on race day.

Be Skimpy, Loose Fitting and Synthetic

Summer racing is not the time for long-sleeved sweat suits. Stick to shorts along with either a short-sleeved shirt or a singlet (aka “tank top”). Lighter colours help to reflect sunlight, keeping heat away, while synthetic

materials will assist in wicking sweat away from your body, which keeps you cool. For maximum airflow, look for mesh inserts in clothing— but please don’t take this as permission to seek out that mesh tank top. Let’s keep this family-friendly, shall we? A visor is preferred over a running cap as it will shade your face while allowing heat to escape off the top of your head; there’s also the added bonus of not messing up your fabulous race-day hairstyle— very important.

Pace Yourself to Expect Less

Now that you’re fashionably set to race, you need to get into the right frame of mind for racing in heat: start slow. Presuming it’s hot, you’ll want to keep yourself cool for as long as possible by keeping to a slower pace at the start. Heat up too soon and you’ll pay for it later – imagine yourself running soaked to the finish and being unrecognizable as your race-day hair has become

limpy and drenched—not good! Stick to a slower pace up front and dial back your expectations in light of the heat.

Liquids are Your Best Friend

One final tip on summer racing: make the most of liquids before, during and after your event. Think of pre-race hydration as filling up your sweat tank to cool yourself off during the run. On race day, be sure to make use of every aid station. I like to use water to cool off my hands, as their high bloodflow makes them excellent conduits for temperature adjustment. I also make sure I take in sports drinks for electrolyte replenishment. I find that swishing it in my mouth helps me feel more refreshed. Just think of aid stations as your essential cooling oasis. As you embark on a summer race or two, I hope to see you out there. Just look for the sweaty guy melting on the trails trying to keep his hair intact.

It turns out that the longstanding belief that water is all you should drink when trying to lose weight isn’t necessarily true. In fact, nutrition experts at the University of Alabama at Birmingham have found that proper hydration is more important. According to the pros, beverages including green tea and mineral water mixed with fruit juice are just as effective as plain water at supporting weight loss. Even better? Coffee counts towards our daily fluid intake. While no one’s suggesting you bypass the water station on your next race, it’s all about finding the right balance. YOUR PLAN: Along with water and other fluids, choose foods with a higher water content, including melons, cucumbers and broth-based soups.

Future of Injury Prevention Runners may have the ideal sport for reducing stress and losing weight, but they’re also at risk for ongoing joint injuries, from twisted ankles to chronic hip pain. But German developers have created a prototype running shoe along with a companion smartphone app that will offer runners advice, including correct foot positioning, which will help prevent injury on their training runs. While both the shoe and app have been developed, fine-tuning is still in the works. Runners may find these high-tech kicks on shelves by 2015.

Need for Speed Remember when you’d run out the school doors at recess to play? Well, according to research presented at the American Heart Association’s Scientific Session, these days many children around the globe can’t outrun their parents. Researchers analyzed 50 studies spanning nearly 50 years that looked at 25 million children ages nine to 17 in 28 countries. They found that cardiovascular endurance began to decline in 1975, resulting in children being about 15 per cent less fit than their parents were as kids. It’s startling news: if your little ones aren’t dashing out the door now, they’ll be more likely to develop unhealthy conditions later in life. FIT KIDS: Encourage the children in your life to get out there and participate in games and activities that involve running, which will strengthen their cardiovascular endurance. iRun to be healthy. — Dave Perfetti, Ontario


Change It Up Although dietary supplements may help some folks meet their nutritional requirements, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, enjoying a wide range of foods is your best nutrition strategy. Building your daily meals and snacks around nutrient-rich foods including fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein offers the most nutritional value. For runners or anyone with an active lifestyle, getting the maximum nutrition per calorie will not only fuel your training, but it will also help you stave off weight gain. EAT THIS: Combining vitamin-C rich foods such as mandarin oranges with leafy greens (including spinach) will help maximize your body’s ability to absorb iron, a nutrient that many runners have in short supply.

From couch to marathon in under one year An interactive training program designed to see you achieve!

B

y and large, the limitations we place on ourselves are self-created. We don’t know what we can do until we try. This holds true in all aspects of life. Having a child? Moving your family? Following your dream? Any of these things are difficult. And they may even seem impossible at first glance. Like, for instance, running the marathon. So many people say, “I’m not a runner, I could never do that.” And yet, what is a runner? Who? And who says you can’t do it? How come? The average running clinic takes something like 10 weeks to move through the four most popular distances: 5K, 10K, half marathon, and marathon. Which means, with a little bit of grit and moxy (OK, lots), a person who’s never run a day in their life can make it to the marathon in only one year. Don’t think you can do it? Then you’ve never met Betty Lee. “My plan was very simply to learn to run, whatever that means, because I wanted to have some weight loss. I had no plans to run a race,” says Lee, 51, a Toronto-based business analyst who completed her first marathon in the same year she took her first beginner’s clinic at The Running Room. “As I continued running, there was always someone saying, ‘You should keep going.’ The thought of running the marathon was so out there that I laughed it off, but I could keep adding a few kilometres to my run over time and I thought, ‘Wow, OK. Why not?’ I didn’t know any better and I just kept running and it gradually happened over time.”

2014 issue 04

This summer, in conjunction with Black Toe Running in Toronto, EachCoach in the National Post, and iRun magazine, I’m going to be taking people on a journey—from the couch to the marathon in only one year. In fact, we’re going to be taking the trip in even less than a year because the race we’re targeting is the GoodLife Fitness Toronto Marathon on May 3, 2015. So whether you’re aiming for the BMO Vancouver Marathon (also on May 3) or next year’s Scotiabank Ottawa Marathon (at the end of May) marathon finish lines will be crossed, celebrations will be had, and we’ll be documenting our entire process. The first step? Deciding to take on this challenge, then announcing your ambitions to the world, and enlisting the support of your family and friends.  “The most critical step is building a community within your run group and telling your family and friends,” says Reed Ferber, associate professor of kinesiology at the University of Calgary and director of the Running Injury Clinic. Ferber, along with a team of professors from the department of physical eucation, helped develop the Honolulu Marathon Program, which has produced 1,500 first-time marathoners since its inception in 1982. The length of the program: only eight months. “I firmly believe that anyone can run a marathon —physiologically and biomechanically, it’s something that anyone can do,” says Ferber, who will also be acting

as our “angel guest coach,” along with Olympian Eric Gillis and nutritionist Dr. Lawrence Spriet. Ferber’s runners learn from the ground up about the right way to run: How to warm up before racing; the importance of stretching and proper footwear; diet; form; the necessity of rest. By avoiding the most common pitfalls that sideline even the most eager, physically fit runners, Ferber’s group has been able to enjoy a 98 per cent success rate. Think about that: 98 per cent of the 1,500 runners who have taken and stuck with his Honolulu Program have crossed the finish line. And crossing the marathon finish line is not an experience that you’ll likely forget. “I wasn’t active at all as a child. I was always overweight. But when I saw that finish line, I knew the moment I crossed it, I would be a marathoner,” says Abbas Shah, 31, who recently crossed his first finish line at the Scotiabank BlueNose Marathon in Halifax. For Shah, running any kind of race was on his bucket list. But after he ran his first 10K, he kept on running —until he could say that he’d successfully completed the marathon (changing his selfimage at the same time).

“When I crossed that finish line, I knew I now belonged in a different club,” he says. “It’s hard to explain the emotion, but I let myself go. I opened my arms and I was just lost in the moment. I had just run the marathon.” It took Abbas Shah two years to get to the marathon. Whether you attend our clinic at Black Toe Running in Toronto, or follow along online at iRun.ca/ feetdontfail, for weekly training schedules, tips, and motivation, we want to help you share the same emotions. And we want to see you do it in only one year. “People talk about goal setting, and I really understand that now in terms of once you have that big goal in front of you, it really keeps you on course,” says Betty Lee. “Consistency is the most important thing for a runner; that, and a good supportive community. With those two things, I believe anyone can take a year and get to the marathon. Look at me.” For more information on Feet, Don’t Fail Me Now, iRun’s exclusive one year training program to reach the marathon, visit iRun.ca/ feetdontfail and add your voice to the mix. We want to see you achieve your dreams.  


The dynamic duo

ON PACE

KRISTA DUCHENE, COLUMNIST

Playing a dual role of parent and professional athlete is incredibly rewarding, but it also requires alot of self-sacrifice—so it helps to have a partner to share the load. Here’s how Krista DuChene’s husband, Jonathan, helps his wife navigate the ups and downs of her running life.

S

ince running my first marathon at 3:28 in 2002 to my tenth at 2:28 in 2013, not to mention having three children added to the mix, I’ve gradually shifted sacrifices as I pursued my multifaceted career as a runner, dietitian and mom. Needless to say, while my husband Jonathan has enjoyed the journey with me, having children has certainly made the course a little more challenging. For the first few years we were married, Jonathan loved golfing on Saturdays as I headed out for a run. But shortly after our first child was born, that all changed. Being an early riser, I could often get a run in and be home for the baby before Jonathan headed out to tee off. But it made for a long day for me before he returned and we were able to spend time together as a family. It also became increasingly difficult to get work done in and around the house with a growing baby. And so, like many other times in his life, Jonathan sacrificed one of his desires for someone else’s, expecting nothing in return. During our 13 years of marriage, we have aimed to maintain a steady balance of our individual needs and wants without keeping score. He does not see his actions as sacrifices, which has been incredible for our children, who are learning

that putting others ahead of themselves is always a better way. Like me, Jonathan certainly feels pleased and blessed with a successful career and three amazing kids. I’m grateful for his devotion and commitment to Team Duchene, which has enabled me to succeed. Here are five ways that Jonathan has helped me transition from a recreational runner to a professional athlete. Hot weekend breakfasts Sometimes it’s the little things that are most important. Every Saturday and Sunday, Jonathan makes fresh waffles or crepes as the kids watch cartoons in their pyjamas and await my return from a long run. Without question, there are very few things I adore more than coming home for a hot shower, cup of coffee and waffles with my family. Sleeping in on the weekends Now that the kids are older, while I’m out running they can manage on their own before breakfast. But I’m sure there are more times than not that Jonathan is woken to noise, requests or the need to referee before he is able to make up for lost sleep from earlier in the week.

Holding down the fort Parenting is a juggling act. While I’m away competing for a weekend, Jonathan has absolutely no problem parenting on his own, successfully getting kids to birthday parties, swim and hockey practices. There may be a few more trips out for treats while I am away, but that is part of the healthy balance. Cheering on Team Duchene Once in a while, we are able to go to races where more than one of us competes. The logistics of parking, warm-ups, expected start and finish times, and cool downs while safely weaving the chariot stroller and kids through masses of people is something he has mastered quite well over the years. Navigating the road to recovery More recently, after I sustained

a leg fracture while defending my title at the Canadian Half Marathon Championships in Montreal, Jonathan once again rose to the occasion. From catching the earliest flight possible after my surgery to doing the jobs I am unable to complete at home on crutches, he continues to display exemplary care for his loved ones. Although they certainly deserve more than one special day to be honoured, on this Father’s Day, Jonathan and the many other dads who continue to selflessly love their children and spouses should know that we couldn’t pursue our careers and enjoyment of life without them. Of course there are many more examples of how Jonathan has been an integral part of my success as a runner, but it is no surprise that when asked, he can’t seem to think of anything.

NUTRITION

W

BY PATIENCE LISTER

Six joint-strengthening foods for runners

ith each stride, a runner’s knees buffer the impact of a force that can be up to eight times her body weight. Without healthy joints, running would be a painful and jarring experience. Unfortunately, everyone’s joints degenerate and lose flexibility with age. By 30, most people have tears in their cartilage, and after 45, many people begin to experience signs of degenerative conditions, such as osteoarthritis. In addition to genetics, recovery time and running form, nutrition plays a significant role in joint health. Broccoli, turmeric, blueberries, sardines, walnuts and pineapple contain nutrients shown to reduce joint damage and regulate inflammation related to degenerative joint conditions and injuries—ultimately keeping runners running longer.

Broccoli

Broccoli’s bitter flavour comes from the elite joint-strengthening nutrient sulforaphane. Loading up on sulforaphane throughout the training season can help reduce inflammation in stressed joints and slow the breakdown of cartilage to offset the risk of osteoarthritis. One cup of broccoli supplies over 100 per cent of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin K and 90 per cent RDA of vitamin C, ensuring effective bone mineralization and healthy shock-absorbing cartilage in the knees and hips. Smart Tip: For an anti-inflammatory boost, substitute broccoli sprouts for regular sandwich lettuce.

Turmeric

The next time a sprain interrupts your training, eat some curry. Known for making curry yellow, turmeric also supplies joints with a good dose of anti-inflammatory and painkilling agents that may help runners rebound from injuries faster. A study published this year in Clinical Interventions in Aging found that curcumin, the key nutrient in turmeric, reduces joint inflammation and pain as effectively as ibuprofen. Curcumin also protects joints by stimulating the growth of new collagen in connective tissue and deactivating enzymes that

break down cartilage. For runners dealing with rheumatoid arthritis, turmeric can help reduce joint stiffness and swelling to make running more comfortable. Smart Tip: Piperine in black pepper makes curcumin more absorbable by the body. Eat turmeric and black pepper together for an enhanced effect.

Blueberries

When it comes to antioxidants, these Canadian berries are top contenders. The immense density of antioxidant polyphenols in their skin, seeds, juice and pulp protects the synovial membranes of joints from harmful oxidation by free radicals. This, along with the high water content of blueberries, helps maintain the fluid level within joint cavities for proper lubrication and a smooth, well-cushioned stride. Scientists at the University of North Carolina recently discovered that periods of intense running revs up the absorption of blueberry polyphenols, offering heightened protection when joints need it most. Smart Tip: Buy fresh local berries during the summer to freeze for a year-round supply of antioxidants.

Sardines

These little fish pack a first-class nutritional punch. A 106g can of sardines contains almost three times the recommended daily intake of

omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. Omega3s strengthen the cartilage within joints by boosting collagen levels. They help manage the pain, inflammation and stiffness of joints to speed up recovery after intense runs or injury. They also equip runners with 110 per cent RDA of vitamin D and 25 per cent RDA of calcium to synergistically fortify bones and fight osteoarthritis of the knees. To top it off, sardines are one of the most sustainable seafoods available, they are low in marine contaminants, and they are very inexpensive. Smart Tip: Choose sardines packed in water or rinse those packed in oil under cool water to remove unnecessary fat.

Walnuts

Walnuts are not your typical nut—they are high in the omega-3 fatty acid ALA which is converted within the body to EPA and DHA. This means that runners can eat walnuts regularly to increase bone stability and muscle strength, reduce joint injuries from overuse, and lower their risk of inflammation from arthritis. One cup of walnuts also fulfills 46 per cent RDA of the magnesium runners need for maintaining strong bones and cartilage within their joints. Smart Tip: Drizzle walnut oil on green salads in place of commercial dressings.

Blueberry Walnut Granola Homemade granola is a satisfying way for runners to boost their intake of vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. 3 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup shredded coconut 1/3 cup sunflower oil 1/3 cup honey 1 tsp vanilla 1/4 cup hulled raw sunflower seeds 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds 2 tbsp sesame seeds 1 cup chopped walnuts 1 cup dried blueberries

Heat oven to 250 degrees. In a saucepan, heat canola oil and honey on low until melted. Remove from heat and mix in vanilla. Pour over oats and mix until evenly coated. Spread oats onto a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until light golden brown, stirring at 15 minutes. Allow oats to cool then mix in the remaining ingredients. Store in a sealed container. Makes approximately 5 servings.

iRun because there are those who can’t. — Chris Nicholls, Ontario


Pineapple

Pineapple contains an excellent antiinflammatory and painkilling enzyme called bromelain. It is a medically recognized treatment for arthritis and tendinitis that also reduces the swelling and recovery time from sprains. One cup of pineapple delivers over 100% RDA of vitamin C to help repair damaged cartilage and build strong connective tissue in tendons and ligaments. The powerful antioxidant behaviour of vitamin C also blocks free radical damage to slow the progression of arthritis. Because bromelain increases the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin, pineapple and turmeric make a superb combination. Smart Tip: Eat pineapple at its peak ripeness to receive the greatest concentration of bromelain. With no pharmaceutical cure for joint disorders, diet is one of the most practical routes towards optimized joint health. By focusing on foods that are naturally rich in joint strengthening nutrients, runners are ultimately rewarded with fewer injuries, a lower risk of arthritis, and a longer, more enjoyable running career.

Joint strengthening extracts When whole foods are not an option, commercial extracts provide an alternative way to strengthen joints. Krill oil, grape seed extract, and astaxanthin are three effective choices. Krill Oil What it is: The oil extracted from small shrimp-like crustaceans that live in the ocean. Benefit for runners: Makes running more comfortable by reducing the pain, stiffness, and inflammation of arthritic joints. Cost: $10 - 35 Grape seed extract What it is: A concentrated source of antioxidants extracted from the crushed seeds of grape plants. Benefit for runners: Helps reduce the breakdown of joint cartilage by fighting oxidative stress generated during long and intense runs. Cost: $12 - 25

TRAINING

BY RICK HELLARD

The ‘Oops’ Factor

Cross-training: low impact, great return

Hmmm, where to begin?

T

he first ‘oops’ runners make when adding cross-training to their regimen is what they actually consider to be cross-training. In my opinion, strength training, stretching and speedwork are not cross-training: they are part of the training, not an addition to it. With that understanding, including activities that could be considered cross-training is a great idea for almost everyone. I have always felt that for something to be added, it should have a fairly direct benefit to your running. I recommend engine building activities like swimming, cycling, cross country skiing or inline skating—assuming you are not already a triathlete or speed skater. I deal with a lot of multi-sport folks—triathletes mostly— who consider what they do to be cross-training. In

reality, swimming, cycling and running should be considered the training for triathletes. That is the sport. Certainly there are many other options, but you may have noticed that everything I listed is lowto non-impact. This is not a coincidence. Running is already fairly hard on the knees and joints, and including another sport that is also hard on your knees and joints (see Six joint strengthening foods, p.14) is not something I suggest — at least not in significant doses. Adding large doses of non-impact stuff is easy on the body and builds better lungs and heart. This type of activity, in small volumes, can be very relaxing. Or, in large volumes, it can be quite challenging. Either workout is acceptable crosstraining, but the purpose of the outing should be considered ahead of time and scheduled accordingly.

CONSIDERATIONS Low-impact workouts can be added in a number of ways to maximize the benefits: Before a run: to warm up the muscles and extend the duration of the aerobic work. After a run: to cool down, or even to extend the workout with less pounding, thus reducing the risk of injury from over-stepping your limits. On its own: These gentleron-the-body activities can be used for intense training that will allow for faster recovery with a lower risk of injury. As great as the benefits of this cross-training can be, though, it is important to remember that specificity will almost always be your best bet for improvement. Pedalling or swimming hard may help your heart beat faster and stronger, but it is your legs that support and run for you. They need to be used at high intensity to really get the benefit of the hard work. ‘Oops’ no.2 would

be counting on the cross-training to make up for not actually running. It can help your running, but it does not replace it. It is also important to remember that you only have so much energy —understand if you add a few hours of cross-training a week, you likely have to pull back a little on the running. ‘Oops’ no.3 would be forgetting to account for the extra time and effort required, and just adding it in, potentially overdoing it. Similarly, no matter what your level of fitness is, adding another activity will require some patience and progression. Add the new activity slowly and don't be surprised, as you get used to your new activities, if you are a bit sore in body parts you did not know had nerve endings!

Lip service Runners these days have all sorts of high tech gadgets. But sometimes, it’s the simplest things that get forgotten when you head out for a run—like lip balm. Training outdoors in the sun and wind can wreak havoc on lips. Because they don’t have oil glands to keep them nourished, lips dry easily and can become chapped. They also don’t produce much melanin, the pigment in our skin that protects us from the sun, which means they can burn. Lip balm with SPF helps seal in moisture and prevents lips from burning. The next time you lace up your running shoes and dash out the door, grab some lip balm. Your lips deserve the attention.

The Chapstick Challenge: 7 days 7 lip balms Choosing a lip balm can be as difficult as picking out the perfect pair of running shoes. You can spend anywhere from a couple of dollars to as much as $30. To help wade through the plethora of products on the market, we put seven lip balms to the test. Here’s how they stacked up.

Day One

Nivea Sun SPF 30, $2.99 ★★ If you like to actually feel that you are wearing lip balm, this is the one for you. It goes on very thick and has a slightly waxy texture. Wearing this lip balm will give you an idea of how a car feels after a wax job—water just beads off your lips (wax is one of its ingredients, so it’s no surprise). Once the waxy texture disappears, lips are left smooth, but a little tight. It has an SPF of 30, which is a selling point. But be warned, if you have long hair, you might find your ponytail

sticking to your lips on a windy day.

Day Two

RoC Soleil Protexion, $11 ★★★★.5 Leave it to the French to make a lip moisturizer that feels more like an expensive lipstick than a lip balm. It goes on silky, with almost no smell, and finishes semi-matte. After a few minutes it is almost like it’s not there at all. Lips felt moist after a tough workout on a hot and humid day. It also has SPF 30, but it protects lips from the sun’s harmful rays without feeling like you are smearing sunscreen all over them.

Day Three

Arbonne Lipsaver Sunscreen SPF 30, $10 ★★★.5 This lip balm goes on silky and is very light, but it has a definite menthol smell to it and makes your lips tingle a few seconds after it is applied. The tingling sensation disappears fairly quickly, but if you’re not a fan of feeling like you have

GEAR

Rub A535 on your lips, this may not be the lip balm for you. It does contain SPF 30, which is a definite plus. It also contains safflower seed oil, chamomile extract and vitamin E, which leave lips smooth and moisturized for a long time. It doesn’t hold up to heat well, though, so make sure you don’t leave the tube in the sun on a hot day.

Day Four

Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Moisturizing Stick, $9.00 ★★★ Nuxe has ditched the traditional cylindershape lip balm and made this one actually look like a tube of clear lipstick. It glides on light and creamy, leaving lips feeling soft and moist. It contains natural products such as sunflower and macadamia nut oils, argan oil, Shea butter, honey, and a Vitamin E-derivative. The company claims to have tested this lip balm in “extremely cold conditions in Canada,” and found that it protects “against

5 1 4 external aggression (88%*).” The major drawback is that it has no sun protection.

Day Five

Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm, $5.79 ★.5 This lip balm is like butter on you lips and despite its name, it doesn’t have the waxy feel of some other lip balms. It contains kokum, shea and cocoa butters to hydrate lips and it claims to offer four hours of long-lasting moisturization. Maybe it should say 40 minutes? Instead of making lips moist, it leaves lips feeling quite dry. It also seems necessary to keep reapplying. After a day of using this product, lips felt more chapped than they did before. It also loses points because it doesn’t contain sunscreen.

Day Six

Blistex Five Star, $4.99 ★★★★ Blistex claims that its main five ingredients are the perfect combination for dry lips. It contains glycerin to hold in moisture, candelilla (wax) to protect lips from the wind, wheat germ to moisturize, calendula oil to soothe chapped lips, and SPF 30 to protect them from the sun. Blistex might have come up with the perfect combination. This lip balm goes on a little thicker than some of the others tested, but it is barely noticeable after a

7

few minutes. It also has a pleasant cocoa butter scent. Dry lips felt much smoother after wearing this lip balm. And even after a long run, it didn’t feel like it was necessary to reapply it. Who says something has to be expensive to be good? But be warned, I wouldn’t forget it in the car on a hot day. Even after a few minutes in the heat, this lip balm was a gooey mess.

Day Seven

Chapstick Active SPF 30, $2.99 ★ Made specifically for athletes, this lip balm goes on smooth, albeit a little waxy. It has a slight odour, which you can actually taste in your mouth. So unless you want the aftertaste of lip balm lingering in your mouth, best to leave this one on the rack. It also contains parabens, a preservative used in

cosmetics that has raised some health concerns. This lip balm does have SPF 30, so in a pinch, slathering a little of this on before your run might be a better option than having nothing at all.

The Final Word on Dry Lips

If your lips are constantly chapped, drink more water. While it won’t heal dry lips, it will help keep them from getting worse. When all else fails, you might want to turn to a product many long distance runners often have on hand: Vaseline. Slathering on petroleum jelly at night, and throughout the day, will lock the moisture in your lips. But you will still want to have a lip balm with sunscreen on hand for running outdoors to give your lips the protection they deserve.

INJURY PREVENTION

A runner’s challenge:

moderation A reminder for those of us who like topush the limits (and beyond) of our progress. By Joanne Richard

T

he M-word: a challenge for runners everywhere. Moderation may mean different things to different runners but one thing is for sure, practicing moderation in exercise is the sweet spot when it comes to improving health and avoiding injury. Putting in kilometre after kilometre while foregoing rest, relaxation and recovery doesn’t get you to the finish line. Finding your ideal footing when it comes to moderation is essential to going the distance, says Lisa Moore, an avid runner and personal trainer in London, ON. “Without

18

2014 issue 04

rest and recovery, runners are prone to both chronic injuries and burnout, neither of which is ideal for anyone’s running plans.” Applying restraint can prevent runners from being sidelined, but it can be challenging. “New runners are often so focused on reaching

their distance goals, they don’t realize they need to factor in recovery,” says Moore, 41, of fintesstogo.ca. On the other hand, experienced runners get complacent and caught up in training the same way for every race, and don’t consider that mixing things up or allowing for recovery weeks would be beneficial to their progress, or for reaching that personal best. Factoring in R&R is smart training, agree experts, and an essential part of staying on the run longer—and maybe even living longer. More is not necessarily better, according to studies showing that longer, harder workouts do more damage than good. Just this April, Pennsylvania researchers

announced that too much running can take years off your life, while another U.S. study in 2012 suggests moderate running—32 kilometres or less a week at a moderate pace of six- to seven-minutes-perkilometre—is beneficial for your health and lifespan.

Define the terms

A mix of moderation, variety and progression is key to healthy running, adds Moore, who is not in race mode presently and is doing quick interval runs two to three times a week to supplement strength training. For Halifax runner Greg Wieczorek, 150 kilometres per week is moderate. While

iRun to clear my mind. — Sarah Lamothe, Ontario


marathon training, the 32-year-old boosts his mileage to 190 kilometres weekly or more. “Everyone’s definition of moderate is different. For a highperformance athlete, 150 kilometres per week might be considered moderate, whereas for someone who is relatively new to running, four runs of 20-minutes per week might be considered moderate,” says Wieczorek. Improving each season requires redefining the term moderate, says Wieczorek, a running coach and chartered professional accountant with a marathon personal best of 2:25. “Intense exercise has its place within a training program, but it has to be complemented with easy running in the days before and after to allow for recovery. Over time, incorporating at least two thirds or more of your weekly training volume at an easy effort level is more sustainable, less risky, and generally yields better long-term results,” says Wieczorek.   Rest allows the body to adapt to ongoing training stimulus, and the musculoskeletal system to recover and avoid wear and tear, adds Wieczorek Wieczorek, who offers online custom coaching at projectpb.ca, adds that in order to race your best you need to get to the start line fresh, healthy, and without having missed any extended periods of

training due to injury. “Some runners leave their race in their training and are frustrated when they underperform at their goal race.”   

Practice what the pros preach

While many preach moderation, it’s not exactly something Dr. Richard Rayman practices. One could say that Rayman has gone too far, too fast and for too many years. Actually, he hasn’t taken a day off in over 35 years. His definition of moderation is putting in easy days, not missing days. “We are all probably type-A personalities, so running easy or fewer miles is very difficult when we are trying to achieve a goal, whether it is a subfour-hour marathon or 20 marathons in one year.” Rayman runs between 30 minutes to two hours every single day. “The 30-minute run days are my rest and relaxation. I rarely worry about speed these days,” adds the Toronto dentist, who has completed 307 marathons. The 111-pound runner has remained relatively injury free. “I would strongly recommend taking off one or two days a week. Rest or cross train. I rarely listen to my own advice.”

Maintain technique

Listening to sports physiotherapist Justin

Vanderleest’s advice keeps runners in stride. Moderation is dependent on a runner’s fitness level, running skill, and goals, and injuries can be prevented by moderating training volume, working on technique and wearing appropriate footwear. Beginners are advised to keep their distance to whatever allows them to maintain their best technique. “When technique falters, that’s when you’re most at risk of injury,” says Vanderleest, of athletescare.com. Experienced runners would do well to rest more after their longer runs and do more shorter runs focusing on technique and running drills. “Use an established training program that incorporates gradual progression and enough rest,” says the Toronto physiotherapist. The bottom line: If your goal is maintenance of health—injury-free fitness for longevity—then moderation of distance to match your fitness level is prudent. “In general, if your running distances feel extreme to you, or the outdoor conditions feel extreme, then you are probably pushing the limits and increasing your risk of injury and wear and tear,” says Vanderleest.

INJURY PREVENTION Remain injury-free while going the distance

5

tips from Toronto sports physiotherapist Justin Vanderleest, of athletescare.com: Get some coaching and improve technique before progressing distance. In preparation for higher mileage events like marathons, use an established training program that incorporates gradual progression and enough rest. Don’t give yourself the bare minimum 16 weeks to prepare for a higher mileage event like the marathon; instead, start building-up your distance gradually throughout the year. The four-month lead-up to the marathon will be a lot less stressful on your body that way. Don’t make the marathon your first running goal; build a running history by doing lower mileage events first. Improve your performance at those before progressing to higher mileage- events. Seek guidance from a trained health professional in biomechanics, pathology and exercise, such as a physiotherapist who works with runners, at the earliest signs of injury or overuse, or even preventatively.

In Practice

tips from Greg Wieczorek, marathoner 5moderation and running coach at pbrunningcoach.blogspot.ca:

1

Apply the 10 per cent rule. Don’t increase your training volume by more than 10 per cent from the previous week.

2

Schedule a recovery week every third or fourth week, where your training load is 75-80 per cent of the previous weeks’ maximum.

iRun to inspire. — Dayna Langlois, Ontario

3

Schedule a week or two of no running after an intense season or completion of a major race. Gradually ease back into running in a systematic manner.

4

Don’t jump into an aggressive training schedule without having safely worked up to a level of training you can reasonably handle.

5

Make regularly scheduled appointments for physiotherapy and massage to have a professional assess issues that may cause you problems down the road.

I

used to feel lethargic and blah a lot, and by the end of the day just tired and grumpy. One day I stood at the top of the stairs, huffing and puffing like crazy just from carrying up a load of laundry. I looked in the mirror and didn’t like what I saw. “Oh no! I look like my mom!” Don’t get me wrong—I love my mother! She’s amazing. But I never saw her playing sports or exercising. It was typical of that generation. There wasn’t as much awareness then, not as many role models. We didn’t even know smoking was bad! I thought, “This isn’t the kind of role model I want to be to my kids” (ages 5, 6, 15 and 17). I wanted my kids to see fitness and health and happiness. Anyway, I went back to the basement and dug out a juicer, looked up some easy recipes and just started adding fresh juice to my normal breakfast. It really boosted my energy. I started craving fresh food, crunchy green things. I dropped a size even before I started exercising. Then a girlfriend and I bought a coupon for hot yoga for a month, and committed to two to three times a week. It was great for my mind and my body. Then we joined a gym to do strength class with weights a few times a week. I figured if this is my midlife crisis, fine! I’m doing this instead of getting a boob job or a sports car. It’s a lot cheaper! Another friend felt inspired by my new lifestyle and said she wanted to start running. Foolishly, I made a bet with her: “If you race a 5K, I’ll race a 5K.” A few hours after her race, I got an email from her with a list of events to choose from. I picked the Chocolate Race in St. Catharines...because if I’m going to do this, it’s got to be fun! I know my kids are proud of me. It feels great when they say, “You’re so happy, mom, you’re so

healthy!” They learn about fitness and nutrition in school, so they get why I’m doing this and they think it’s cool. The last year has been all about change, including a trip to Costa Rica to do things I swore I’d never do, like rock climbing and rafting. I’ve learned that you have to say “yes” more to things that scare you. I realized I was missing stuff, playing it too safe.

“iRun because I love poutine and wine.” When you get strong physically, you get strong mentally too. People ask me how much weight I’ve lost and I really don’t know. I love that I’ve gained energy and muscle. And I enjoyed the first guilt-free meal of my life. It was in Paris. It was the best meal I’ve ever eaten because I only thought about how good the food tasted. Not, “I shouldn’t be eating this,” or “How many calories…?” Sometimes I feel like Forrest Gump! I run the same loop around my neighbourhood a couple of times, and a bunch of kids usually join me for a few blocks. There’s the 10-year-old on his unicycle. Sometimes there are four kids running with me, then six. They run with me for a bit. My younger kids like to ride their bikes alongside and cheer for me. I don’t have any running insights to offer. I’ve run 16 times in my life so far! But what I learned as a newbie runner is that it helps to make yourself accountable.

Tell people what you’re doing. I put it out on social media: “I’m going to try to run.” And ask questions. The advice and support I got from the running community online blew my mind! I meet so many new people on Twitter. I ask about shoes or motivational tunes and get tons of great advice.

I’m enjoying running now. And I’m training as a member of a media team for a sprint triathlon in Toronto this summer. I’m 43 and I can’t believe what my body can do. I wish I’d done this 20 years ago! My philosophy now is, “I eat. I move. And I enjoy.”

FORM AND FUNCTION

Could muscle imbalance be hindering your performance? By Sarah Hoy

W

hile we love to run, there are a number of factors that need to be considered to keep our bodies healthy. To continue to run well it is important to refine your form and correct muscle imbalances.

What is muscle imbalance? We asked John Zahab, brother of iRun's Runner-in-Chief Ray Zahab and certified strength and conditioning specialist from Continuum Fitness and Movement Performance in Ottawa what a muscle imbalance means for a runner. The answer? “A number of things—it could be a result of lack of strength or lack of muscle activation and poor joint control. Or it could be a result of lack of flexibility or poor mobility.” Activation is the interaction between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems to produce a desired effect. Think of it like waking up the muscles. We need involvement from many muscles to provide effective movement. However, some muscles can become dominant and may not provide sufficient control of the joint during movement. The muscle that needs activating can vary from person to person.

"A common issue I see in many runners is glute max weakness or an inability to activate the glute max muscle. Often these individuals are hamstring dominant in hip extension,” says Zahab. “Running is essentially a series of hip extensions and if the muscular system of the hip isn't functioning the way it should, then the ability to control the hip from unwanted movement becomes compromised—which may lead to inefficient movement and place undesired stress on the system resulting in injury.” Do you have an imbalance? Often we suffer from soreness, but you have to remember to listen to your body and get to know warning signs. Gilles Beaudin, a clinical exercise physiologist at Cleveland Clinic Canada in Toronto states: “Injury is a common way to tell if you have an imbalance. Also, look for chronic tightness or discomfort and limited range of motion.”

A common thing seen in many runners are glute max weakness or inability to activate the glute max muscle.  Often these individuals are hamstring dominant in hip extension.

FORM AND FUNCTION Poor technique is the often the root of imbalance and limited range of motion, causing certain muscles to lose flexibility, Beaudin adds. “Runners are uni-dimensional. They repeat the same movement patterns that overuse certain muscles.” Zahab adds says runners often overdo it (never!). “We sometimes do too much volume too soon, or too much intensity too soon. You may have someone not activating very well, or restricted in their range of motion, and the potential for an injury may be hidden until they go and put the body under stress.” How can you correct muscle imbalance? Seeking professional assistance to identify weaknesses and to provide exercises to target these areas may be the most efficient solution. Working on your strength and flexibility is key. “Get involved in other activities, preferably nonendurance based, such as strength training,” says Beaudin. Strength training programs that work on form, strength, flexibility and movement activate muscle groups and core muscles that control joints—waking up the muscles to prevent unwanted movement. Focus on exercising your glute max and medius muscles as well as working on your core.

Refine your form If running is something you want to enjoy for the rest of your life, it is very beneficial to work at running more efficiently to avoid injury. Graham Glennie from St. Albert Physical Therapy & Sports Injury Clinic in Alberta, has his clients run on the treadmill to try and identify the problem. Keep it down If they are making a lot of noise with their foot contact, it is likely that they are heel striking. This creates a large deceleration force, too much upward movement (bounding), over-striding and wasted energy expenditure. “Often I will cue the client to run quieter. This can help decrease impact forces and increase efficiency,” says Glennie.  Mind your posture “Lean forward from the ankles, rather than the hips. This helps create momentum from body

Activating the glute max Modified bridge: Start by lying on your back with your heels on the ground and legs at 90 degrees. Squeeze the glutes as hard as you can and ‘pop’ up your hips as high as you can. Try to minimize the hamstring activation to isolate the glute muscles. Do two sets of 8-10. Do this as part of your warm-up before training. Find more glute and core strengthening exercises under Run Strong at iRun.ca.

weight and keeps our posture correct,” says Glennie, adding, "The shoulders should be slightly rolled back and down. This decreases tension in the neck, and keeps are chest open to allow our lungs to expand easily.” Turn up the cadence He also recommends looking into stride frequency. “I encourage a frequency of 170 to 185 steps per minute. An easy exercise to do on your next run is to count how many steps in 20 seconds you are taking and multiply by three,” says Glennie. “Increasing frequency decreases the time that your foot is in contact with the ground, helps with over-striding and increases efficiency.” Aim for the middle Your foot positioning is also important when refining your form. Glennie promotes a midfoot strike to maintain a

foot-plant under your body rather than ahead of it. Breaking down your stride into four components can help identify areas of weakness and pinpoint where your form is falling apart: A. Drive: from foot contact up to hip flexion. B. Load phase: moving the leg down to initial foot strike. C. Push off: working from push off and extension from the hip. D. Return: swinging through back to initial contact. To stay strong and continue running, consider these steps to help your form and prevent injuries. Take note of any pinching, pain or tightness within each of these components, and speak to a professional before making any adjustments to your stride.

THINK ABOUT HIP MOBILITY

It is important to stretch all areas of the legs, but pay a little more attention to the hips. Tightness in the glutes and hip flexors can decrease running economy and predispose you to injury.

If you feel you have an imbalance, have it corrected as soon as possible so you can continue doing what you love... running! iRun.ca

Boston

2014 This year, it was with determination that many returned to Boston to run, spectate and support the event that in years past has held strong, persevered and triumphed in the wake of adversity. This year was no different as 32,456 participated, including 2,234 Canadians, in the esteemed 118th Boston Marathon — proving to the world that the global running community would run again.

A will to survive: running a ’Double Boston’ Toronto’s Jean-Paul Bedard ran the Boston Marathon twice —once for himself, and once for other survivors of childhood sexual abuse. By Bridget Mallon

It’s hard to say what is most remarkable about Bedard. We could tell you that he’s run 80 marathons and several ultras (including the 89-kilometre Comrades in South Africa) in the last 16 years. Or that he just did the ‘Double Boston,’ running 84.4 kilometres by doing the Boston Marathon route from the finish line to the start, then running it the more usual way with everybody else, start to finish. But what stands out most is his willingness to speak publicly about his experience of childhood sexual abuse. The last time he ran Boston, the year of the bombings, he finished in four hours—much slower than planned for someone who typically runs a 3:30 time. Only a few weeks earlier he had disclosed the abuse he experienced as a child to his wife and son. During the race, traumatic memories surfaced. About halfway through, Bedard collapsed and started to sob uncontrollably. Medical aides brought him to a med tent, where couldn’t stop crying. He tried to explain he wasn’t hurt physically, just mentally, and they let him go after about 20 minutes. That Bedard started that marathon at all, or finished it, gives you some idea of his determination and ability to persevere. On his return to Toronto, his doctor gave him a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder. Unable to concentrate, he couldn’t return to his work as a teacher for several months. “I couldn’t even read a paragraph. I was crying a lot. But I could run every day. And it was cathartic. As I healed slowly I got the idea to do Boston twice to raise awareness.” Bedard also found help at The Gatehouse Treatment Centre, a Toronto charity that helps survivors of sexual abuse. He decided to raise awareness and funds for The Gatehouse by doing the ‘Double Boston.’ “There are very few resources for men who were sexually abused as children. There’s Gatehouse in Toronto, where I went, one in Ottawa and one in Calgary. I want to change that.” The Double Boston isn’t sanctioned, but a few people do it every year. “Because of the added security this year, I had to get a special letter of permission from the race director. When I wrote to the race director explaining why I was doing this, he responded in like 15 minutes with a letter of permission,” says Bedard. Through his efforts, Bedard has raised $22,000 so far, along with awareness for “an epidemic no one is talking about.”

Sheri and Steve McReady OTTAWA

Steve and I have been a running-couple for over 20 years, and the Boston Marathon has been a fixture in our running lives for the last 14 years. It’s a highlight we wouldn’t consider missing. Of the dozens of marathons we’ve run, it is by far our favourite in terms of the organization, the expo, and the course, but most of all the crowds of spectators that come every year. They came even after 9/11 when the world was afraid the race might be a target for terrorism. Who knew that years later, in 2013, it would be? Last year, 15 minutes after I crossed the finish line, while I was at the baggage bus, I heard the bombs. I rushed to gather my things to meet Steve who had run in the wave ahead of me. We tried to leave the area via the Arlington subway station, but it was evacuated. We walked back to our Boston University B&B, witnessing the despair and confused chaos among the wandering runners on Newbury, then the corralled runners on Commonwealth. This year, many things had changed that may never be the same again. No baggage busses, no personal items at Athletes’ Village, no easy access to the subway, and there was a massive security zone for blocks around the finish area with police or military at every imaginable spot. Things that didn’t change? The spectacular crowds lining that beautiful course! We runners may have accomplished something special, but this year the spectators did too. They underwent extensive searches just to be on the curbs. They cheered, showing their fearlessness, as they supported us. They were a part of the event like they’ve never been before, thanking us for coming as we thanked them for being there. There is no question Steve and I will be back next year, not only to challenge ourselves, but also to experience that special emotion that prevails in Boston every Patriot’s Day.

iRun to keep fit and compete. — Jim Dyer, British Columbia

Alain Gontheir OTTAWA In 2013, when I ran my first Boston Marathon, I wanted it to be more than just a personal accomplishment. I also wanted to use the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for youth mental health, and did so by supporting the Do It For Daron (DIFD) campaign of The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health. The fundraising was an overwhelming success; thanks to the generosity of so many, I managed to raise $3,500. My run was also an overwhelming success, one of my best marathons. Unfortunately, my accomplishment seemed of little importance after the act of terror that took place. My family and I were fortunate to return to Boston this year, and what a marathon it was. Again this year, I supported DIFD and youth mental health. This time I had raised the bar to $4,200, representing $100 per kilometre—hey, I'm Canadian, and in Canada 26 miles is 42 kilometres! The outpouring of support was overwhelming and I exceeded that objective, raising over $5,000. My fundraising was a source of motivation, especially in the wake of what had taken place the year before. While over 32,000 runners took to the starting line in Boston this year, we did so as one. Everywhere we went, people would thank us for returning to Boston to run the marathon. For the people of Boston, this simple act represented a sign of solidarity. Life teaches us many lessons. It teaches us not to turn our backs in the face of adversity and to make a right stronger than a wrong. These have been unforgettable experiences for the whole family. Underlying it all, was the reminder that running is not an individual sport. For Gonthier‘s full recount, please visit ‘Running for a Reason‘ at iRun.ca. Name

WHY I RUN

By mark sutcliffe

We’re going to Boston!

M

ay 2014: it’s the final mile of the Poconos Run for the Red Marathon and my calf muscles are seizing up. This condition has been developing over the last few kilometres and now seems to be slowing me down considerably. My stride is changing from a solid, controlled pace to a quick, desperate shuffle. I feel like Lightning McQueen hopping anxiously to the checkered flag in the opening scene of my son’s favourite movie, Cars. How long will it be before I am walking or stumbling, watching the minutes slip through my fingers until my goal—to run the fastest marathon of my life and qualify for Boston—is lost? And then, it seems, my question is answered. The pace bunny for my Boston time—3:25—goes zooming past me to my right. It’s over, I think to myself. Another failed attempt. I stop running and start walking. It has been a long journey—and I’m not talking about the first 25 miles of the race. For as long as I can remember, I had my Boston plan: I would run a quick but achievable 3:30 marathon when I turned 45. But then a year before I reached my new age group, the qualifying standard was raised by almost six minutes. Now I didn’t just have to get older, I had to get faster. I trained harder, running six times a week instead of four or five. I entered this same Poconos race in May 2013. It was supposed to be

2014 issue 04

a fast downhill marathon —I figured I needed every possible advantage—but due to construction, the route was changed to a more challenging course. I finished in 3:26:51. It was a new PB, but not good enough for Boston. I tried again three months later. This time I went out way too fast, blew up in the second half and finished in 3:30:50. What I once would have celebrated as a quick time I now considered a disappointment. My very supportive wife encouraged me to try again. My Boston breakthrough didn’t consume me, but it was always in the background. I watched what I ate. I was always thinking ahead to my next run, the next race. I read up on fast courses and studied longrange weather forecasts. I went back to a coach with whom I had worked before—iRun columnist Rick Hellard—and asked for help. He gave me a program that

added speed to many of my workouts, including my long runs. I signed up for the Jacksonville Marathon—flat course!—the weekend after Christmas. The tougher training went very well, beyond my expectations. “Keep this up and you WILL get to Boston,” Rick wrote to me after one of my successful workouts. I was optimistic. But at the last minute, the forecast for Jacksonville changed from cloudy and cool—my ideal conditions—to warm and humid. I was sweating before the race started.

I went back to a coach with whom I had worked before —iRun columnist Rick Hellard— and asked for help. He gave me a program that added speed to many of my workouts, including my long runs. There were men all around me running shirtless. I stayed on pace for a long time, but succumbed to the heat, finishing in 3:25:22. Another PB, another Boston

miss. And now, here I am again at the Poconos Run, walking hundreds of metres from the finish with another disappointment at hand. After four or five steps, I decide I’ve come too far to stop without one last push. I repeat to myself a white lie from my very first marathon: you only have to do this once. I start running again. If I stay close enough behind the pace bunny, maybe I can put on a big surge in the final few hundred metres and catch him. Maybe I can squeeze out a 3:24:59. I glance at my watch: 3:17. I have more time than I thought. And then I see the 3:25 pace bunny ahead: he has stopped completely. He tells me later that he got confused and went too fast. I pass him. I push as hard as I can for the final 300 metres and finish in 3:23:36. And then, the best part: I wait for my training buddy, Bob. A few minutes later he approaches for the final stretch on pace to beat his own qualifying time. “We did it!” I yell at him as he runs past, my arms in the air. We’re both going to Boston. Finally.

LUROSIL™ & CORDUZIN™ : A Dominant Combination v

Bryan Morseman Runner - Addison, NY

Bryan Morseman is a competitive marathoner who uses Corduzin as part of his daily regimen. Although he’s from New York Bryan might as well move to North Carolina. He just set a course record in March 2014 at the Asheville, NC Marathon; winning the grueling, soggy trail race in 2 hours, 25 minutes, and 46 seconds. In November 2013 he won the City of Oaks Marathon in Raleigh, NC with a time of 2:27:29 and eight days before that he won the Trivium Racing Greensboro, NC Marathon with a time of 2:30:30. When asked about Corduzin here’s what Bryan had to say: “I have been injury-free, and have not had to worry about feeling tired, nor fatigued when I use Corduzin. The product is the real deal, and it can be used by anyone, if you’re looking to shave minutes off a 5k, 10k or even a marathon.”

Triathlete - Alexandria, VA Alonzo “Lonnie” Crittenden is an Ironman triathlete. He cycles more than 250 miles, swims more than 30,000 meters and runs more than 100 miles every month to keep in top shape. The lingering after-effects of a college football career led to wear and tear on Lonnie’s knees. He eventually tore his left meniscus. When he discovered Lurosil, he was able to keep his competitive fire burning. When asked about Lurosil here’s what Lonnie had to say: “Not long after I incorporated Lurosil into my training regimen, I won a triathlon in Pinehurst, North Carolina by such a wide margin that they questioned my age. I literally had to show my ID and birth certificate in order to claim my winnings for my age group!”

Roxanne Zobava Runner - Atlanta, GA

Roxanne Zobava is a former bodybuilder. She transitioned to biking and running while seeking a more balanced, healthier way to remain athletically competitive. She began a new trek in 2004, competing in road races, duathlons, and sprint triathlons. After training for duathlons and triathlons, Roxanne recognized that she enjoyed running most, and set a personal goal to run a marathon before age 30, which she completed. When asked about Lurosil and Corduzin here’s what Roxanne had to say: “In November I ran my first 100-mile race and I don’t think my body would have held up if I had not been taking the Corduzin and the Lurosil. I starting taking it about a year after I starting running and I am injury-free!!”
