WELCOME Hello fellow runners and walkers, We are excited about this year's pride run and walk in St. Petersburg, Florida, "The Sunshine City." It's our inaugural year in the welcoming city of St. Pete and our newest location in the Pride Run Series lineup of races. I am Dan Shabra, Race Director for Pride Run St. Pete. I want to welcome and thank you for choosing to participate. Pride Run St. Pete is a part of RaceLookup's Pride Run Series. The series promotes a fun atmosphere where people can come together in an environment that recognizes and supports #IDEA; inclusion, diversity, equality and acceptance – where everyone's welcome. It is our honor to have you at Pride Run St. Pete, helping us acknowledge and reinforce the importance of IDEA. As you probably already know, June is the month to be in St. Pete. St. Pete is Florida's largest Pride and this year is no exception. It is not one to be missed, especially this year as St. Pete Pride introduces its St. Pete Month of Pride June 2021. The first week of June is Outdoor Adventure Week. Pride Run St. Pete kickstarts the St. Pete Pride OUTside festival on Saturday at 7 AM, with festivities continuing into mid-afternoon. We have an incredible event in store for you. Rick Kriseman, Mayor of the City of St. Petersburg will be saying a few words and starting the 5K race. The timed 5K race starts and finishes at the festival and uses streets that follow the waterfront. It is a beautiful and refreshing way to take in the picturesque views of Tampa Bay along the St. Pete Bayshore. While enjoying St. Pete OUTside festival, race participants 21 years of age and older can treat themselves to a complimentary beer provided by St. Pete Pride's beer sponsor. We feel privileged to be able to bring the Pride Run Series to St. Pete. It is even more heartfelt, knowing how we have all felt deprived of our passion for running and walking events as we all have gone through the COVID-19 pandemic. We could not execute on race day without the help of our race crew volunteers. We thank them for their support and contributions. Please also help thank them throughout the day. We also want to thank the City of St. Petersburg for recognizing the importance of the Pride Run St. Pete to its community and for supporting IDEA for all individuals. We appreciate all that the City has done to help make this a fun and safe event for everyone.

MAKING SENSE OF YOUR RUNNING DATA

MAKING SENSE OF YOUR RUNNING DATA BY HARRY ANDREW

W

e are living in a world of unlimited information and nowhere is this more true than in the sports world. We’re inundated almost daily with new wearable devices with advanced metrics that provide athletes, coaches and trainers real-time performance data. Whether you’re running, throwing a football, shooting a basket, swinging a golf club or any other sport, you only have to have a pulse for one of them to provide measurable data. So what do you do with all this new data? Information is only worthwhile if you know how to interpret it. Here are five tips on how to make sense of your running data from two expert running coaches.

1. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR TOTAL TIME AND DISTANCE According to John Honerkamp, running coach and senior manager of runner products and services at New York Road Runner, the most basic data from any GPS running watch – your total time spent running and the total distance you covered – are the most important metrics you should be tracking. Calling basic GPS information the key, he says that any information beyond that, like cadence and heart rate, can be helpful but it’s not necessary. Honerkamp recommends that runners always follow the “coaching standard,” that of gradually building your endurance by increasing the number of miles you finish on your longest run every week. But he also cautions not to exceed more than 10 percent per week.

2. CHECK YOUR PACE (BUT NOT TOO OFTEN) Measured in minutes per mile, your pace is another helpful piece of information because it enables you to estimate your effort over the course of a run. "You don't need to look at your pace every five seconds,” said Honerkamp, “since things like going up a hill will change your pace, and you don't want to change your pace all the time just because of your watch." He recommends checking your pace every mile or so just to ensure you’re on the right track.

3. DON’T IGNORE ELEVATION GAIN Jack Daniels, the two-time Olympic medalist and running coach with the Run SMART Project, says that this information can be handy in certain situations, like determining whether you’re running uphill or downhill in relatively flat areas where it can be hard to tell. Since you’re likely to run at a slower pace as the elevation increases, he says that if you’re training for a race like the Boston Marathon that has a hilly course, you’d be smart to train your body in advance for those elevation changes.

MAKING SENSE OF YOUR RUNNING DATA

4. CADENCE (SOMETIMES) COUNTS Your steps-per-minute or your cadence, says Honerkamp, isn’t a metric most runners need to analyze after every workout. But like elevation gain, there are certain situations where that information is helpful. For example, if a runner is working with a podiatrist or doctor but is still getting injured constantly, then pace is something to look at because it’s directly related to running economy or running efficiency – the amount of work you need to do to maintain a certain speed. The most efficient cadence, according to Daniels, is about 180 steps-perminute. This is based on his testing runners at a variety of stride rates and always finding that this rate uses the least amount of energy. If you’re working on improving your running form then check your cadence every few weeks to determine if your efficiency has improved.

5 EFFICIENCY IS GREAT, BUT DON’T GET HUNG UP ON IT Cadence is just one measure of running efficiency. Some of the most advanced running watches also track vertical oscillation (your up/down movement or “bounce”) and ground contact time (the amount of time your foot stays on the ground with every step). But Honerkamp doesn’t believe these metrics are something the average runner needs to worry about. Daniels agrees with Honerkamp, saying that “a runner who tends to bounce up and down a lot will certainly be less efficient than a runner who focuses on moving horizontally instead of vertically.” Instead, he tells his runners to “Try to imagine you are running over a field of raw eggs and you don’t want to break any of them.”
