Resistance Training for the Marathon By Lauren Takao You have a goal: to complete the Honolulu Marathon. Maybe you're a first timer, mainly hoping to survive the 26.2 mile jaunt through Downtown, Waikiki, and Hawaii Kai, or maybe you're a seasoned veteran who has traversed the paved roads of Kalanianaole Highway week in and week out on long runs. Either way, your mind is set on the 2013 race. Three pairs of running shoes? Check. Blister-free socks? Check. Water bottle holder and gels? Check. Running plan? Double check. Resistance training routine? Uh, say what? As in lifting heavy weights with dumbbells and barbells? For many long distance runners and endurance sports athletes, resistance or weight training takes a backseat to putting in miles on the road or meters in the pool. Developing strong bones and muscles through the use of resistance training is vital in an athlete's overall performance, yet utter the words "resistance training" to most individuals, and images of muscle-bound bodybuilders lifting dumbbells and barbells are the first thing to pop into their heads. Contrary to popular belief, you can build relative muscle strength through bodyweight exercises–meaning you don’t have to load up an Olympic lifting bar or pump the hard iron to get the benefits. And the best part? You don't need a gym membership or extra equipment to get stronger for your next race. Most runners think they don't need to work their upper body, but that belief couldn't be further from the truth. Tired shoulders, lats, biceps, and triceps will lead to a slumped running posture (especially in later the miles of a marathon), which in turn causes reduced efficiency in arm swing. Doing good 'ole push ups and pull ups not only targets the muscles that will end up fatiguing around mile twenty, but is also deceptively useful for building core strength. You can also vary hand placement (closer together and fingers fanned inward for push ups is more challenging, wider apart in pull ups with palms facing outwards targets more upper back) to increase or decrease difficulty. Doing planks (either on palms or forearms) works the shoulders, core, thighs and glutes–all muscles that need to be strong while running a marathon. Planks on all fours too easy? Try extending one arm or leg and holding the position. The less body parts touching the ground, the more challenging the exercise. Many runners assume that since they run on hills, do speed work weekly, and slog through long runs to increase mileage, that they don't need to engage in resistance training for their lower body. Bodyweight lunges, squats, and good mornings, however, are also important in maintaining hip mobility and ankle flexibility, and should be incorporated 12 times a week into a runner's regimen. Believe it or not, the deeper you can squat with good form (weight towards the heels, chest up, pushing the ground apart with your feet as you ascend from the sitting position), the more flexibility you receive in your hips and ankles–a huge plus for those putting in long miles on the trails and road. Good mornings (hinging forward with straight arms extended overhead and legs

straight, then coming back to neutral with a straight spine all at a slow and controlled tempo) may appear to be easy, but in actuality stretch and strengthen the upper back and hamstrings. The beauty of exercises like push ups, pull ups, planks, squats, lunges, and good mornings is that you don't need to spend a lot of time or money to reap their benefits. Lower body movements, push ups, and planks can be done in the comfort of your home, and any playground or park has monkey bars and/or pull up bars where you can practice using your upper back and arm strength to hoist your chin over the bar. Do 2 sets of 15 reps of these movements two times per week after a run, and see how much quicker (and more pain free!) your next marathon can be.

Cross training for better fitness and fewer injuries by KC Carlberg, MPH, Owner of Try Fitness

Working out is an awesome way to lose weight, get fit and feel healthy. Often times our regular workout routine can leave us feeling burned out, unmotivated or just plain old tired. If this is the case for you, might I suggest Cross Training. Cross training is a great way to inject new life into your routine by conditioning different muscle groups, developing new sets of skills, and relieving the boredom that sometimes sets in after months of the same exercise routines. Additionally, cross training adds variety so you change up the stress placed on specific muscles and your cardiovascular system. Our body is an amazing mechanism and after months of the same movements it becomes incredibly efficient at performing those movements. While those routines may be great for competition, it limits the amount of overall fitness you possess and reduces the actual conditioning you get while training and instead of continuing to improve, you simply maintain a certain level of fitness. Cross training can also help to reduce the risk of injury from repetitive strain or overuse. The term cross training refers to a training routine that involves several different forms of exercise. According to Elizabeth Quinn of the Cooper Clinic in Texas, it is necessary for an athlete to train specifically for their sport if they want to excel, but for most exercisers cross training is a beneficial training method for maintaining a high level of overall fitness. For example, you may use both biking and swimming each week to improve your overall aerobic capacity, build overall muscle strength and reduce the chance of an overuse injury. Cross training limits the stress that occurs on a specific muscle group because different activities use muscles in slightly different ways. The following exercises can be used to make up a cross training routine: • Cardiovascular Exercise: o Running o Swimming o Cycling o Rowing o Stair Climbing o Rope jumping

Benefits of Cross Training • Reduces exercise boredom • Allows you to be flexible about you training needs and plans (if the pool is closed, you can go for a run instead). • Produces a higher level of all around conditioning • Conditions the entire body, not just specific muscle groups • Reduces the risk of injury • Work some muscles while others rest and recover • Can continue to train while injured • Improves your skill, agility and balance o Skating (inline or ice) o Skiing o Racquetball / basketball / other court sports • Strength Training o Calisthenics (push ups and crunches and pull ups) o Free Weights o Machines o Tubing and Bands • Flexibility (stretching, yoga) • Speed, agility, and balance drills • Circuit training, sprinting, plyometrics and other forms of skill conditioning With cross training, you can do one form of exercise each day, or more than one in a day. If you do both on the same day, you can change the order in which you do them. You can easily tailor cross-training to your needs and interests; mix and match you sports and change your routine on a regular basis. Cross training can help you strengthen the cardiovascular system, bones, muscles, joints, reduce body fat and improve flexibility, balance and coordination. If you want to inject some new life into your regular workout and get fitter, add some cross training into your routine. KC Carlberg, MPH, Personal Trainer and Owner of Try Fitness

Improve your Marathon Experience with a JACO Run Analysis What is a JACO Run Analysis? It is a comprehensive assessment of your muscular strength, flexibility and current running form performed by a physical therapist using computer software. Slow motion video is the best way to see even the smallest idiosyncrasies that plague runners. How would an analysis help me? An analysis would give you insight on the strengths and weaknesses of your current running form. You will get feedback and recommendations to improve running efficiency and reduce risk for running-related injuries. Should I sign up for an analysis if I am having pain while running now? If you are able to run with your normal gait pattern but experience pain after certain mileage then YES! An analysis may be just what you need to determine the causative factor. If you are unable to run without limping then come in for a free 10-minute evaluation at JACO Rehab to determine if you are a candidate for physical therapy. Who wants to improve on your marathon time by 26 minutes? One minute per mile? Seriously? It IS possi-

ble as age group Ironman Triathlete Verne Santos proved from one year to the next. He improved on his Kona Ironman marathon time by 26 minutes from 2011 to 2012. “The running analysis definitely helped. Reflecting back, I was expecting immediate results and did not notice a big difference. Through time and training all the things I learned in the analysis came together and made a big difference. I know there is a lot more to work on.� A run analysis isn’t just for the seasoned runner; we have had plenty of newbies who are just starting out. Learning how to run with the best form is a great way to start your running career. For more information and to schedule your run analysis, please email or call 381-8947 Aside from run analysis, JACO now offers Lactate Threshold Testing for runners, cyclists AND Paddlers!

The HiLevel Check List By Brad Yates Imagine that you are preparing for a major endurance competition, a competency exam that will determine entrance into the occupation of choice or a huge sales presentation at work. Utilizing the following check–list will help you to prepare to give your best effort under extreme pressure. The Base To perform at your best under pressure you need to have a solid base of the fundamental skills required, awareness of the expectations and comfort with the demands to execute the task to completion. Fundamentals The skills are over–learned. The phrase unconscious competence speaks to the ability to perform difficult tasks with apparent ease. Like the long-distance runner who attacks the hardest part of a course and glides up a hill apparently gaining speed and strength with each stride. Expectations The anticipation associated with the pending event is met with a calm sense of confidence and the appreciation for the opportunity to demonstrate your competency. Like ocean athlete who welcomes the challenge of paddling non-stop in rhythm for five hours in adverse conditions. They simply know that their training will get them through to the other side of whatever lies ahead. Execution The energy required to complete every essential movement and decision is present in abundance. The need to lead, support and reflect allows you to notice and deal with adjustments and choose to change, improve or remove yourself from the situation. Like the swimmer in a endurance event who gets away from the pack to conserve energy and then makes his move at the end to finish strong. The Options (Think, feel and act) Note: The statements in red are affirmations that can be used to build the confidence needed to give your best effort. Perception Is Reality Calm water vs. Rough seas Your mind–set allows you to stay positive and keep moving steadily towards your goal. I will build the mental toughness needed to create the best possible result.

Emotions Color Life Sunshine vs. Stormy weather Your realistic expectations help you establish the proper attitude, level of intensity and overall focus. I will maintain a positive attitude throughout the event. Sensations Are The Cues & Reminders Flow vs. Struggle Performance breathing allows you to breathe through your mind — settle down, be aware, prepare and execute under pressure. I will use my breathing to maintain my rhythm and operate at the most effective level. Experience Sets The Tone Energized vs. Drained You know how to sequence — to prepare mentally and physically, execute the needed skills and complete each movement and play. I will be fully engaged and express my gratitude throughout the event. The Creation (Essential sensations and emotions) Express Joy Pleasure and Value You respond with confidence when faced with challenges. I will embrace the challenges and find the joy/value from my efforts. Be Happy Satisfaction and Confidence You are present, able to operate in the moment and manage distractions. I will work hard, express my passion and learn from my efforts. Be Grateful Trust and Appreciation You finish what you start and are pleased with the results. I look at each event as an opportunity to learn and grow. Be Passionate Enthusiasm & completion You achieve meaningful goals and experience success from your efforts. I love what I do! HiLevel Tool Box Using the HiLevel check–list and suggested affirmations on a regular basis can help with the preparation to give your best effort when it matters most. You might find it useful to begin the process two weeks out and possibly longer for extreme challenges. This lead-time will enable you to make the needed adjustments to your attitudes, intensity levels and over–all focus. That’s HiLevel!


Fall Shoe Guide

With fall weather upon us, we’re finally able to get out for cooler runs, longer distances, and the big races we trained for all summer long. With these perks of the season in mind, shoe companies have put forth their best designs and most innovative installments of fan-favorite shoes. Our rundown of the best Fall 2013 shoes features plenty of newcomers alongside faithful models that have withstood time and miles of long running. Below are our picks for the crop of the season — a variety of minimalist, stability, and cushioned models that will help runners of all stripes make the most of their running this autumn.



GLycerin 11


adiStar BooSt

CategOry: neutral Weight: Men’S 11.8 Oz. | WOMen’S 9.6 Oz. PriCe: $150 BrOOkSrunning.COM

GeL nimBuS 15

CategOry: StaBility Weight: Men’S 11.8 Oz. | WOMen’S 9.6 Oz. PriCe: $170 adidaS.COM

The adiStar Boost is a cushioned trainer for roads, dirt and gravel that provides a new approach to the conventional EVA-based foam. Ideal for heel strikers, this stability-minded shoe provides a lightweight experience for a shoe category often relegated to heavier models. Our testers found the Boost to be responsive on long and short runs, providing a bold new option in its category.

CategOry: CuShiOning Weight: Men’S 11.5 Oz. | WOMen’S 9.4 Oz. PriCe: $145 aSiCS.COM

This year’s update to the perennial favorite Nimbus model pairs innovation with predictability, featuring a flexible forefoot, ample cushioning, and memory foam to create a comfortable and supportive ride. The latest version of the Nimbus builds upon the strengths of the brand, providing subtle modifications while staying true to the design runners have come to know and love.

FALL 2013


Biom eVo racer Lite

CategOry: lightWeight Weight: Men’S 8.5 Oz. | WOMen’S 6.4 Oz. PriCe: $130 eCCO.COM

The ECCO Biom Evo Racer is the second generation of the brand’s Biom line, which presents runners with a novel, anatomical design that’s shaped to the human foot. The Evo Racer employs a durable polyurethane outsole rather than typical EVA foam, providing responsiveness and cushioning upon ground-strike. The Evo Racer’s weight aligns with that of most lightweight trainers or long-distance racers, and our wearers found its neutral profile to be accommodating for a wide number of runners.

Brian O’COnnOr



waVe Sayonara

CategOry: lightWeight Weight: Men’S 7.9 Oz. | WOMen’S 6.7 Oz. PriCe: $120 MizunOuSa.COM FALL 2013 Mizuno revamps their performance trainer line with the Wave Sayonara. The Sayonara has a generous toebox and a snug, secure fit throughout. A flexible forefoot combined with a slightly lower heel-to-toe offset creates a smooth ride. Full ground contact provides just enough stability. Our reviewers found the Sayonara to be a capable everyday trainer or a racer, providing a responsive and lightweight running experience.

The newest incarnation of Brooks’ popular Glycerin model builds upon the strengths of its forbearers, featuring a 3D printed overlay and soft mesh fabric upper, ample cushioning throughout the heel and forefoot, and the subtle support that has brought the shoe to its eleventh iteration. Major alterations include the removal of the midfoot shank, optimizing ground contact and foot transition.

New Balance 870V3

CategOry: StaBility Weight: Men’S 9 Oz. | WOMen’S 7.8 Oz. PriCe: $110 neWBalanCe.COM

New Balance modifies the outsole design of their mild-stability trainer during this year’s reboot to the 870v2. The newest model is flexible enough to fit the neutral runner, but is reinforced in the right places to support the moderate overpronator. A very versatile shoe, the 870v3 can do everything from everyday training to racing.

Newton Running enerGynr

CategOry: lightWeight Weight: Men’S 9 Oz. | WOMen’S 7 Oz. PriCe: $119 neWtOnrunning.COM

A brand-new model from Newton, the EnergyNR is a lightweight trainer geared toward the lightweight sect. Featuring a new take on the company’s signature lug design, the EnergyNR seeks to bring the “Newton experience” to the broader running market. The EnergyNR aims to promote a seamless transition for newcomers to the brand’s design, providing just enough of its signature design elements found in other models to introduce runners to the Newton experience.


LunarGLide 5

CategOry: StaBility Weight: Men’S 10.1 Oz. | WOMen’S 8.1 Oz. PriCe: $110 nikerunning.COM

The Nike LunarGlide 5 is the fifth incarnation of the LunarGlide shoe line, providing ample cushioning, a slight amount of stability, and the feel and weight of a neutral trainer. Featuring Nike’s Lunarlon midsole material, the shoe offers a reliable and durable trainer for stability seekers. Reviewers found the new LunarGlide 5 to offer improvements in the comfort and ride departments, providing a smooth and reliable experience in all conditions.

Puma FaaS 100r

CategOry: MiniMaliSt Weight: Men’S 6 Oz. | WOMen’S 4 Oz. PriCe: $90 PuMa.COM

The Faas 100r is a racer for runners not looking for a strictly minimalist experience, but who still appreciate responsiveness in a racing shoe. The model is thin, breathable and flexible — a refreshing combination of characteristics on race day. Our testers found the sole to have enough give and cushion to absorb the explosive pressure of push-off during the heat of a race, but reported it doesn’t feel like a platform. An excellent racing flat for the 5K-10K range, the shoe also shows potential for half marathons and weekly training. FALL 2013

PowerGrid ride 6

FALL 2013

CategOry: MiniMaliSt Weight: Men’S 7.5 Oz. | WOMen’S 5.8 Oz. PriCe: $110 SkeCherS.COM

Built to U.S. marathoner Meb Keflezighi’s specifications, the GOrun Speed is Skechers’ new racing flat that puts speed and weight at the forefront of its FALL design. 2013 A new staple within the brand’s performance division, the GOrun Speed provides a 4mm-drop platform with just enough cushioning to keep minimalist enthusiasts happy, while allowing newbies to make a foray into the world of minimalist running and racing. Designed as a marathon racing shoe, our reviewers say the model has more cushioning than a 5K maven might be accustomed to in FALL a flat. But that said, it performs excellently as2013 a minimal trainer and a middle- to long-distance racing shoe.


FALL 2013

CategOry: neutral Weight: Men’S 9.9 Oz. | WOMen’S 8.8 Oz. PriCe: $110 SauCOny.COM


The Ride 6 provides minor alterations based off of the revolutionary changes in the Ride 5. The cushioned forefoot, flexible ride, and dependable fit are all found within the newest version of the shoe — leaving the shoe’s treads to be the key difference-maker between the two models. As highly acclaimed as the Ride 5 was in 2012, the Ride 6 was designed to keep the best part of its previous version intact with few substantive differences.

Australia Dominates at this Year’s M20 Championships By Caitlin Stanley July 28th, 2013 proved to be a beautiful yet challenging day for the competitors in this year’s Moloka’i to O’ahu world paddleboard championships. Tropical Storm Flossie was courteous enough to withhold her gusto, but the Ka’iwe Channel had worked up its own storm to challenge the racers. Reflected in this year’s finishing times was the treadmill effect of an outgoing tide, which gave the athletes a longer battle than they were anticipating.

Not surprisingly, this year’s leaderboard was dominated by the all powerful paddlers from Down Under. The Australians stole first, second, and third in the Men’s Prone unlimited with Brad Gaul finishing in 5:05:32, Cam Cole in 5:07:49, and Matt Poole in 5:11:09. These men proved their athletic Prone Unlimited Champion, Brad Gaul prowess and intense determination as they raced their boards to the very last moment. The three crossed the finish line triumphantly thrusting their arms upward. After taking a moment to process their finish they were met with joyous embraces from friends and family members. An upset in the Men’s Stand Up Unlimited came from Australian Travis Grant (4:50:17) who victoriously claimed first place. Grant chose a dif-

ferent, more Northerly route which enabled him to cut off the favored Conner Baxter (3rd, with 5:02:02) and Kai Lenny (4th, with 5:07:57) of Maui. In second place was Scott Gamble from Honolulu with a finishing time of Men’s SUP Champion, Travis Grant 5:00:53.

First in the women’s prone division, to no one’s surprise, was the talented Jordan “Magic” Mercer who claimed her third win at the M2O finish line. She finished with a time of 6:10:00, putting up another victory for the Aussies. She dug deep into the Women’s Prone water with long fluid Champion, strokes as she approached Jordan Mercer the mouth of the finish line between the big red Duke’s buoys , sailing her board into the finishing bay. After crossing the line into her freedom from the ocean she jumped joyfully onto her board and threw her hands upward: a moment of pure satisfaction, love, and relief. Like many others she fell backwards into the water at the immense joy of finishing. Once she made it to the crowd tears of joy and relief fell freely. Mercer kept a strong lead on her competitors: Leane Darling came in second in 6:22:40 and Candace Appleby was third in

6:41:22. All three women gathered at the finish line amongst the flurry of racers congratulating their fellow competitors. The female SUPs stood strong this year with Terrene Black of Australia in first (5:40:40), Jennifer Kalmbach of the Big Island in second (5:45:22), and Sonni Honscheid bringing home third for Germany (5:52:07). Black surprised everyone by proving that she was the racer to beat– many were expecting favorite Andrea take the win.

This year’s athletes proved as strong as ever, and all seemed to enjoy every bit of pain they put themselves through. It would be nearly impossible to not be inspired by the racers at the finish line, their unabashed joy obviously masking the pain their bodies were experiencing. The relief they felt to be standing on immovable earth was palpable and the joy and pride in their finish sent contagious smiles and happy tears through the mass of spectators. This year’s finish was a show of utter determination and the ultimate in all things endurance.

Hardrock - A True Test of Endurance By Larry Inouye “The weather is a dominant factor for this run and can be at least as formidable as the terrain, remoteness, or high altitude. It is our general opinion that the first fatality we may have will be either from hypothermia or lightning.” – 2013 Hardrock Hundred Runners Manual.

Thunder, lightning, freezing rain, pelting hail, and more rain. I’m thirty-seven miles into the race and have just crossed over the top of Handies Peak. At 14,048 feet, it is the highest point of the race. Twenty minutes ago the skies were clear, the sun bright, and you could see the spectacular San Juan mountains extending 50 miles away. Now everywhere I look is dark, cold, wet and gray. Thanks to the foresight of my crew/pacers Marian Yasuda, Sarah McIntosh, and Cheryl Ridlon, I find a light rain jacket and gloves in my pack and am able to continue running down the mountain in relative comfort.

great–relentless in keeping me moving without killing me. Somehow, we made it to the next aid station ( at mile 89) where Cheryl took over and paced me as I struggled through the final miles to finish a little after midnight on Sunday morning.

Hardrock was my most difficult ultra and I couldn’t have done it without the support of my crew and pacers: Neal Yasuda, Jeff and Vanessa Huff, Sheri Kishaba, Rodney Young and the Healthways Hawaii team, Runners HI, and the Hawaiian Ultra Running Team. I can’t thank you enough. You all helped to make Hardrock a very special race for me. Hardrock has a well-deserved reputation of being one of the most difficult ultramarathons in existence. While most ultramarathons give you between 30 to 36 hours to complete the race, Hardrock allows you 48 hours. Over the 100mile course, you cross over the tops of numerous mountain peaks for a total elevation gain of 33,124 feet. Many of the climbs top out between 12,000 and 13,000 feet and temperatures can range from 90 degrees during the day to about 20 degrees at altitude during the night. with me at 4 a.m. when I’m more than a little sulky.

1st Annual Moana Loa Training Time Trial Hawaii Sport Magazine has expanded its Big Island coverage and will now be featuring a race recap or athlete profile from the island of Hawaii in every issue! This report comes from Tom Solis of the Hawaii Cycling Club. Photos by Bob Fewell. What a day, what a race, what a location for the Hawaii Cycling Club’s Mauna Loa Training Time Trial held on Saturday, July 13, 2013!

The Mauna Loa Training Time Trial was a very special event. The day was postcard picture-perfect -- clear and comfortable, with only a slight breeze, and the views from the finish line at 11,000 feet were spectacular! The numerous ups, downs, twists, and turns make the course much more difficult than the 4,400 elevation gain over 16.9 miles would indicate because they prevent riders from getting into a steady pace. This, however, is part of the experience and adventure of this time trial! The Mauna Loa Observatory Road was very safe despite being very narrow. One 0.7 mile section near the finish was rough, but the entire course was paved and the only cars present were those of the HCC volunteers. It was almost a closed course! Ritter, Jonas Rull, and Linda Yoshida -- and to Chris Graper of the Division of Forestry and WIldlife in Hilo for working on the Permits for this time trial. Thanks to Ironman for the use of signs and traffic cones, and to Bike Works for the use of a tent, chairs, and table. Thank you to The finishers were very excited about the expeHCC’s 2013-2015 sponsors Bike Works and rience and many were overheard saying they Kiser Motorcycles for supporting HCC activiwould be back next year and would encourage ties. friends to participate. Thank you to all the volunteers -- Gail De Silva, Bob Fewell, Joe See you next year at the second annual Mauna Loschiavo, Dave Pratt, Sylvia Ravaglia, Rich Loa Training Time Trial!

Two inspired competitors were John R. Cole, 71 years old, who completed the course in 2:55:06, and Jason Heady, who powered his way up Mauna Loa with will and determination to finish in 3:38:12. Congratulations John and Jason!

Penn Henderson was the winner with a time of 1:21:47. Penn’s average speed was 12.4 mph over the difficult 16.9 mile Mauna Loa Observatory Road. Starting 33rd in the 36-rider field, Penn passed all but one cyclist, Max La Fortune, who had a second place time of 1:27:15. Rounding out the first four finishers were Sean Maynard (1:33:39) and Bob Patey (1:33:59), just 20 seconds behind. Kym Kiser took the win for the women in 1:48:13, followed by Pam Harlow (2:10:29) and Shirley Pratt (2:18:32).

Camera Test Life As We Know It...On Two Wheels

The annual Century Ride is around the corner, and this is a great celebration of life on two wheels. For many this is the one time a year that they get to ride on their bikes, while in daily life the main mode of transportation is the box on four wheels. There used to be a “break” in traffic on the H1, or the major streets in Honolulu, for the last couple years this has slowly given way to constant traffic all day long, there is simply no rush hour any more. For many, that is not the relaxed Hawaii we used to know, now you have to add extra time and plan for it well in advance in order to get somewhere. So what can you do? While just looking to Portland, Oregon, we can see how popular and easy it is to bike there, and they deal with snow as well, why shouldn’t we be able to use the bike more often as transportation in Hawaii, sure there are hills and yes, it also means sweating. But it is so refreshing and makes for an easy commute when you can bike to work. Of course bicycling is not for the totally inexperienced, it can be dangerous to ride in traffic, and you should be very careful.

It has become quite normal to capture every moment of your life, and there are several great cameras out there. At Hawaii Sport we tested out the Sony Action Cam for you. This camera is tiny, but takes some great pictures for the athlete who do not want to carry a big camera around. Similar to the GoPro this camera can also be strapped to the head or on your helmet, the difference here, is that this camera will be on the side of your head (and not front as with the GoPro). We like the ease of use, the push of a button and you were filming, and the quality was great. It comes with a waterproof case as well. The Sony Action Cam is competitive on the price, and before you head out and buy that Christmas present, you should compare a few of the different action camaras that are on the market.

This product has become a part of my nutritional diet for training recovery! PROS: 1. Product has no taste or flavor when mixed with other liquids, making it very versatile! I have mixed Aminopure Sport in the following and have found no additional taste: water, milk, orange juice, lemonade, coconut water, unsweetened green tea. 2. Product is easy, quick to mix with other liquids, and does not clump up. 3. Product is very reasonably priced at $39.95 for 350g of 100% pure Lglutamine and zero calories. I have been using this product 2–3 times week for the past two months. CONS: 1. If it was also sold in small packets, I could have some in my gym bag to take immediately after exercise. RATING: 5 – Awesome!

These truly are great shoes if you’re looking for all-terrain. They held up in grass, sand, hiking trails, and all the jumping done in between. I need support, so minimalist shoes have never worked for me, but these give the same lightweight feel with added support. Plus, once you get past the “alien-like” support pods, they’re very attractive. PROS: 1. Comfortable–I wore them immediately with no problems, and every day since. My feet feel great. 2. Attractive–I was hesitant at first with pods at the bottom, but the color and style do grow on you. 3. Truly all-terrain shoes–From hiking and bouldering to trail running, these shoes kept up with me. 4. Supportive–I’ve been known to be a little accident-prone and these offered just the right amount of support. 5. Lightweight–I bounce around teaching Aqua Fitness from a pool deck and these never once weighed me down. CONS: 1. Not for walking on leveled surfaces–I attempted a walk to the bank and the pods at the bottom kept me actually off-balance. 2. Not for long distances–Created blisters on the bottom of my feet after 4 miles of trail running. RATING: 5 – Awesome!

Freedom Run

Coconut Chase 8K

July 4, 2013 • Kailua

July 14, 2013 • Magic Island

What better way to celebrate America’s birthday than to dress up in red, white, and blue and run? In addition to being lots of fun, participants support a good cause–all proceeds go to the Epilepsy Foundation of Hawaii! The race started at approximately 7:04AM (an ode to July 4th) and runners, moms with strollers, kids, and dogs started on their paths; Mine was the 10K. I rushed up and down a few hills and before I knew it, I was at the halfway point at and turning around to finish the last 3 miles! The finish line had plenty of wonderful refreshments and food to fill participants’ empty stomachs, and like most people celebrating Independence Day, I enjoyed the rest of my day by treating myself to a huge BBQ and a full tummy! This was a very enjoyable race and I hope to be able to do it again next year.

By: Augusto Decastro The Coconut Chase 8k is a family fun run event which benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I knew I was at the right place when I arrived at Magic Island because just about everyone was wearing colorful grass skirts and coconut bras. At that point I knew I was in for a good time. When the starting gun went off at 6:30 in the morning, For the first mile the Hawaii Sport Reports team ran together to warm up and to motivate each other before splitting off to run at our own speeds. The course was full of beautiful panoramic views of Ala Wai Boat Harbor and Diamond Head and took us around Magic Island and Ala Moana Beach Park and when the sun came up, I couldn't help but notice the awesome volunteers who handed out water to help the runners cool off. Their energy and loud encouragement definitely made all the difference in my motivation to keep my race pace until the finish. After the awards ceremony, the fun continued with a costume contest and giveaway prizes from sponsors. I don't expect to be a top finisher for this race, but I do intend to be in the standings for the costume contest next year.

Run4Ryan July 27, 2013 • Mokuleia Beach Park By: Taylor Kirihara The Run4Ryan was a great race with even a greater cause. Proceeds from the race went to support the Ryan’s Light Foundation, a foundation created in the memory of Ryan Wagner who was lost at the age of 6 to non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2011. The foundation’s focus is on musical therapy and providing musical instruments to pediatric cancer patients. This year’s run raised enough money to purchase 20 ukes for the children. Starting at Mokuleia Beach Park at 7am, the 10K race took off toward Waialua town along the twolane highway while the 5K race headed toward Kaena point. Running along the highway was peaceful and serene, broken up only by the motorcycles escorting the cars past the runners at a safe speed. At the finish we were handed bottles of water and bananas to replenish our energy while we waited for the results and to find out who won the custom Run4Ryan ukes. Overall, this was a leisurely run for a great cause along a flat and runner-friendly course. I highly suggest checking this out next year as one of those “feel good” races. 10K Winners (Male) Christopher Fischer . . . . . . . . . . . . . 36:39 (Female) Cynthia Archibald. . . . . . . . . . . . . 47:37 5K Winners (Male) Thomas Gouard . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 17:45 (Female) Mary Francis McCarthy. . . . . . . . 22:35

PRODUCT REVIEWS The Feed Zone Cookbook & Feed Zone Portables Reviewed by Crystal Banning

Tested at: The Hawaii Sport Test Kitchen, aka Crystal’s House Where to Buy:, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, iTunes Cost: $18.00 Description: Training-focused cookbooks full of pre- and post-workout meals as well as portable options to take with you on a ride or run! The Feed Zone Cookbook and Feed Zone Portables provide endurance athletes with an organized and flavorful approach to fueling the body for intense training. The philosophy of eating homemade food rather than using packaged, processed bars and gels is appealing and the recipes tested provided plenty of energy even during long workouts. With a few small tweaks, I even found the recipes dinner party-worthy!

mid-workout was surprisingly delightful, and with flavors ranging from tiny french toast cakes to miniempanadas, you will definitely find plenty of recipes that hit the spot. Better yet, these recipes use common ingredients that you most likely already have around the house–no expensive trip to the specialty food store needed! If there is any downfall to these cookbooks it lies in the caloric density of their recipes. Perfect for those who train most days of the week, the carbohydrate-rich content could easily add a pound or two to someone less active. For those of us who work out on a near-daily basis, however, I highly recommend seeing what freshly made fuel can do for your training–and your taste buds!

Liberally coat a medium nonstick saute pan with olive oil and place it over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the cooked rice to the saute pan, spread evenly, and cook until crisp (about 3 minutes). Lightly beat the eggs in a medium bowl and pour over rice. Mix gently, then let the eggs begin to set up. Loosen the edges of the omelet with a spatula as you tilt the pan, allowing the uncooked eggs to fill in around the edges. Cover and cook until the eggs in the center of the set up or finish in the oven at 350 degrees for about 5 minutes. Top with grated parmesan and a hearty shake of coarse salt and pepper. Cut into 6 triangles. Let cook to the touch before wrapping in foil. Store in the refrigerator. PROS: 1. Beautifully laid out and easy to read. 2. Both books use common ingredients you probably already have at home. 3. Provides a “whole food” alternative to prepackaged, processed foods. 4. Recipes are well-explained and easy to make, even for beginning cooks. 5. Geared toward the serious endurance athlete.

While the Feed Zone Cookbook gives endless, original ideas for daily cooking organized conveniently in pre- and post-workout categories, the Feed Zone Portables introduces the unique concept of making small “bites” that can easily be taken on a run or ride. To me, this is where the books truly shined. After years of packaged energy bars, taking a quick bite of something homemade and wholesome with real, fresh ingredients

I know many people who can swim, but I do not know many people who know how to swim. The difference between being able to swim and knowing how to swim is technique.

I started the class with strokes that were jelly-like and laughable. My body movement in the water, overall, was very strange. I had learned to swim from friends and family with very little teaching experience. Their advice was to just hang out in the water and it will come naturally. That might be true when it comes to feeling comfortable and floating, but a skill like swimming needs to be studied, analyzed and refined. After only being in the class for seven weeks, I am already feeling extremely comfortable in the water. My freestyle stroke is decent and my body composition is much, much better than when I had started. I still have a few more classes to go before being able to swim from one end of the pool to the other, but I will get there!

3. In addition to learning and focusing on different topics each week, the last 15 minutes of class is devoted to “interval training.” This class structure encourages (and forces) participants to push harder than they would when training on their own time in a pool and in the ocean, allowing students to see constant improvement each week. It is great preparation for a race, to advance to the next fitness level, or just to improve swim technique for fun.
