The magic of Bloomsday


ne of the highlights of working at Northwest Runner is attending running conferences and events, and the recent Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) Convention was no exception. This year it was held in Spokane and culminated with the Lilac Bloomsday Run. The convention was a great bonding experience. Running club members, event directors, and product vendors converged from all over the U.S. to talk about the running industry. But with such a large crowd, how could we all possibly bond?

Easy. Enter Bernard Lagat, American record-holder and four-time Olympian. Lagat was a luncheon speaker on the first full day of the convention. He was a fantastic speaker, wowing the crowd with his casual, friendly conversation about his running career. But the kicker came at the end, during the Q&A, when he was asked to describe a typical training week to the audience. Lagat casually mentioned a mid-week 10-mile recovery run, which he completes at a six minuteper-mile pace. Six. That’s his jogging pace. The audience was so blown away, from the faster runners to the back-ofthe-packers, that we laughed in unison. The tension of sitting in a room full of strangers vanished. We were all one. From elite runners to slow walkers, we were all worlds away from Lagat and it unified us. The rest of the convention was filled with running information that was fascinating to me, but would probably put most runners to sleep. From issues

of event insurance (believe me, there are a lot of issues, especially with relays and obstacle runs), how to measure and certify a race course, and the steps to organizing a well-structured running club, the convention was jam-packed with useful information. But the highlight of the weekend was Bloomsday. If you haven’t ever run Bloomsday, you should. You need to, in fact. You really can’t believe how amazing of an event it is until you’ve experienced it for yourself. Imagine 50,000 runners and walkers, from young children to very mature seniors, out on a course together. No matter where you look, all you see is people. The best part is that the course is lined – no, filled – with local bands and people in their yards cheering for everyone. Seven-plus miles of cheering, little kids wanting high-fives and random guys offering donuts or Otter Pops or cups of beer (to test your stomach as you run up Doomsday Hill, I guess). How did race director Don Kardong come up with such a smash hit? A race that’s been completely embraced by the Spokane community and going strong for 38 years? I can’t explain Kardong’s magic touch, but I will surmise that the reason runners make the pilgrimage to Spokane year after year to run Bloomsday is because it is the best communitysupported race anywhere. Large, corporate events would love to tap into Bloomsday’s energy, but it’s impossible. You can’t orchestrate an entire city to fall in love with an event; it has to grow organically. And that’s the magic of Bloomsday. •

Big move for Super Jock ’n Jill Seattle’s Super Jock ’n Jill, long a running store fixture at Green Lake, has announced the opening of a second store on the Eastside. This is not déjà vu to 1980, when the store had a location for a short time in Redmond. This is a serious step for a fairly conservative storeowner, Chet James, and his crack staff. The new Super Jock ’n Jill, which will wear the same name as the famous Green Lake store, will open in late summer at location in downtown Redmond. The area has not been served by a running specialty store since the demise of the FootZone store in Redmond Town Center, explains Ty Whitten, SJJ’s store manager. He says, “We had many requests from consumers and shoe company reps alike to open a new store there.” To say that the area has changed since Super Jock ’n Jill’s previous Redmond store closed in 1981 is a major understatement. We expect nothing less than a smashing success for the new location for the area’s premier running store — or stores.

Track and field returns to Inland Empire Forty years ago Spokane featured a yearly track meet that attracted the Northwest’s leading track and field athletes. High school coach Herm Caviness started the meet at Ferris High School and then moved it to Spokane Community College when it outgrew the high school facility. A 4:02 mile by Jim Johnson highlighted the meet’s best years, and there were many other quality times and distances. Noting the current lack of serious competitive opportunities for post-collegiate athletes in the area, Caviness decided to revive the meet. He recruited 12 top area collegiate and high school coaches to help with the effort, and their work has come to fruition. There now will be a revival of the Spokane Summer Games, the first to be held August 2nd at Spokane Community College. The 2014 Spokane Summer Games will be very spectator-friendly, offering a European-style schedule with a select number of popular events. The meet’s major goal will be to produce the first sub-4:00 mile in eastern Washington’s history. Title sponsorship is still being negotiated, but individual event sponsorships are selling fast. Prize money will be offered for at least the mile competition, with quality medals and Tshirts for other winners. Top athletes from all over the Northwest will be invited. The Spokane Summer Games’ website will be up soon. In the meantime, for more information email Spokane resident Laurie Shauvin at 8

Non-traditional events see exponential growth Running USA recently presented its first Non-Traditional Running Events Special Report as a result of the staggering number of participants in this category of events. The number of estimated finishers in U.S. non-traditional events has grown from a low six figures in 2009 to 4 million in 2013, an incredible 40-fold increase. The goal of these non-traditional running events is simple: to create a unique, doable experience beyond just running and crossing the finish line. For example, about 60 percent Mud and obstacle races are the of The Color Run entrants most popular non-traditional have never run a 5K. Most running events. photo courtesy are new runners of all ages of the hell run. with an approximate 50/50 gender split that wouldn’t even dream of signing up for a typical local road race. Obstacle races appeal to athletes who are looking for a new challenge to display their strength and skill, while themed races attract those looking to cross the finish line for the very first time and celebrate their accomplishment with friends. In 2012, the founder of the Tough Mudder Series, Will Dean, predicted that in the not-so-distant future, “more people will be doing obstacle races and mud runs than will be doing tradi-

Running USA estimates that the popularity of non-traditional running events drew 4 million participants in 2013, surpassing the record 2.5 million finishers of both the

half marathon and marathon combined. According to an survey of 1,200-plus MOBsters (mud, obstacle, beer) – those people who wear costumes, crawl through mud, scale obstacles, chase zombies, run through color or foam and more – the top three motivators to participate in these non-traditional events included fun, uniqueness and being with friends. Of those surveyed, 27 percent participated in mud runs, 26 percent in obstacle races, 21 percent in paint runs, 11 percent in adventure races, 10 percent in night/ glow runs and 4 percent in zombie runs. Who are these MOB-sters? Females represented 60 percent of participants and more than 90 percent were over the age of 29. Most learned about events through social media or friends. Social media is the driving force of the explosive growth in non-traditional running events. Posting a photo after being splattered in color or covered in mud is sure to initiate a response from friends, family and co-workers. When these photos are tagged and shared, they elicit a “thumbs up” on social networks and the reach is exponential. It is this reach that has caused these events to spread like wildfire. The Facebook chart reflects the huge social media footprint of non-traditional running events. By comparison, the largest Facebook traditional event or series that Running USA could find was the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Series with 714,000 Likes, followed by runDisney with 377,000. It is uncertain what the future holds for these themed-race

In the short-term, these non-traditional events will continue to draw in novice runners seeking fun and friendship or attracting the thrill seekers with new obstacles and challenges. However, the explosion of these new races may present safety issues. For example, mud runs will continue to face concerns related to the balance of fun and safety and will continue to source out vendors willing to insure them. Event organizers are scrambling to join the popularity and introduce the next new series. But as new themed races are added across the nation, at some point, there will be market saturation. With too many choices for mud runs, color runs, night runs, zombie runs and the like, participants are showing less and less loyalty to any specific series. Probably the greater questions will be: Where will these runners go when themed races no longer engage or appeal to them? Will they transition to traditional road racing as the next new challenge? These events may possibly be a pipeline into traditional road racing. Maybe they will begin running on a regular basis or start training for their first road race. Northwest Runner is ready to welcome them!

Travis Boyd Male, 25-29, Half Marathon It’s not often that a Best Times runner offers to share his story in his own words. Meet Travis, who is currently leading his age group in the half marathon. -Ed.


here’s a story behind every race and a story behind every runner. We’ll all run a race where we have either gone through some dramatic training or event, or perhaps the race itself is one to remember. I’d be privileged to share one of my race stories with you.

By way of setting the stage, I grew up in the great Pacific Northwest in Lynnwood. I was born with a crooked foot, so I wore a cast as an infant to help straighten it out. Little did the doctors know that I would enjoy the fruit of their work in the form of running for my years ahead. From fun runs to running over to friends’ houses, I always enjoyed running as a kid. I wasn’t the fastest kid in school in elementary and middle school, but I made a goal in middle school to run cross country and track at the University of Washington. By the time I was a sophomore at Kamiak High School in Mukilteo, I had run my way to the top and would soon become the school record holder in the 1,600m and 3,200m, then fulfill one of my early dreams of running cross country and track at the University of Washington as a walk on. Lacking in the natural speed that my teammates seemed to possess, I focused on the longer distances. In fact, as a senior in high school I had begun to dream about qualifying for the Olympic Trials in the marathon. At the University of Washington, I was blessed to make the varsity team and 14


travel the country racing all four years. Some highlights include finishing 15th in the Pac-10 XC Championships and 19th at XC Regionals, in addition to helping the Husky men finish 12th at Nationals my senior year.

Dreaming of the Olympic Trials

stroller was a great way to train. Mommy would get a well-deserved break from being a mommy, and Julia seemed to love the fresh air.

After graduating from UW in 2007, I began my marathon training by running close to 100 miles per week. I completed the inaugural Seattle Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in 2:23:23, but after struggling through Achilles tendonitis that just wouldn’t go away; I decided to focus on starting a family rather than sacrificing two hours a day toward running. But shortly after my daughter Julia was born in 2012, my wife Krissy and I took her to watch my good friend and college teammate, Mike Sayenko, race Krissy, Travis and Julia are all smiles after Travis set a the 10,000m in the Guinness World Record at the 2013 Heroes Half. all Olympic Trials in photos courtesy of travis boyd.

For New Year’s, I decided to make on my priority list, before running, so a resolution to break the world record I found that running with Julia in the pushing a baby in a stroller for a half

marathon. Why, you ask? Because I love my daughter and I thought it would be pretty sweet to have a world record with her! And plus, the record was only 1 hour 15 minutes, which I was confident I could break. I just needed to find a flat local course. So one day, running home from church (yeah, I like to run home from church for my Sunday long run), I saw the sign for the Heroes Half Marathon in Everett for end of April…perfect!

Setting a world record

begin to hit 110-120 miles per week in preparation for my attempt at qualifying for the Olympic Trials in the marathon. I need to run 2:18:00 or faster (5:16 mile pace), and I took my first shot last October 2013 at the Chicago Marathon. After running 22 miles on pace, I fell just short of my goal due to severe calf cramping over the final 4 miles and finished in 2:19:56. I plan to take my next attempt at the Olympic Trials standard at Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, Minnesota, on June 21st. But in the meantime, I ran the Heroes Half Marathon again this April.

The night before the race, my wife decked out our stroller with Puffs and Cheerios hanging from string so I could One amazing twist to this story of mine keep Julia happy for over an hour of is that our second child, Miles, was born racing. She had just turned one year old just one week before the Heroes Half and loved eating constantly. Sure enough, around mile 7 of the race, Julia began to cry and she was clearly ready for the food. So, while running a 5:20 pace, I reached up and swung the container of Cheerios onto her lap.

A running getaway — or how to restore your mojo


he truth is that I was bored. I was weary of my local trails, weary of the weather in Seattle, weary of the snow pack covering my favorite mountain trails. I was tired of all of my cold weather running gear. As both of my readers know, I love Seattle and the Northwest more than any place on earth, but even though the days are getting longer and the weather is warming up, I needed to escape. A meeting in Los Angeles was the catalyst. I phoned my buddy Ron. And by “phoned” I mean that I sent him a text message. I’m not a caveman.

Here’s the deal, I said. I have a meeting in Burbank, but we could steal the rest of the weekend and run trails in the sun, drink microbrews and hang out in southern California. He was in. We were on. A week later we were flying south. It really felt like we were getting away with something, like we had skipped school or called in sick to work. I hesitated to post to anything on Twitter because I was sure we were breaking the rules. But it turns out when you are an adult with a credit card, you can more or less do what you want, and no one can stop you. My work obligations met, we pointed our rental car east and headed for the Mojave Desert. As we left Los Angeles and threaded through the wind farms and golf communities, we actually started to get excited. We were going trail running. It wasn’t raining on us. There was no mud to be found. It was 80 degrees out. Two hours from the second largest city in the country we stood at a trailhead in Joshua Tree National Park, all alone. Thousands and thousands of acres of



wilderness was ours for the taking. When we set off on the long loop we had picked out for that first day, everything felt a little lighter and easier. My legs didn’t hurt, and even though we were almost 5,000 feet above sea level, my breathing wasn’t labored. By my standards I was even running fast. Stunning. It was stunning in part because there might not be a more beautiful wilderness than the Mojave Desert. But also because every turn in the trail was a chance for a new discovery. We run up a long wash and onto a single track that climbed up to a small ridge. Down a twisty, rocky trail we went, and at the bottom were the rock and metal remains of an old prospector’s homestead. Up another long climb were the ruins of an old mining operation. Wildflowers, cactus, the famous Joshua trees. Oh, and the occasional rattlesnake just to keep us paying attention. At home I know the trails so well I notice when a branch has fallen from a tree. I know exactly how long each climb

w w w. n w r u n n e r. c o m • J U N E 2 014

is. I know that the third board on the bridge over the creek is about to break. I know the distances of each trail segment by heart. Out on that new trail in the desert, everything was an adventure. We spent as much time back at the trailhead drinking cold beer and talking about the run as we did on the run itself. Laughing, giddy and happy. My running energy was back. Even the four-hour drive back to Los Angeles the next day, stuck behind an endless line of Coachella hipsters on Interstate 10, couldn’t dampen it. My running mojo had been restored. Since returning to Seattle I have made a commitment to go exploring more than I usually do. It doesn’t take much to go find a new trail or a park you’ve never been to. It’s only a couple of hours to the (usually) drier and warmer east side of the mountains. To borrow from the slogan of a terrible airline, sometimes you just have to get away. It is so easy to get into running ruts and routines that suck the fun out of it. There is something about a destination run that reminds me why I do it. The exploration, the adventure, and the pure fun of it. Of course I write all of this knowing that my afternoon run will take me right back to the same old trails I run every week. But at least I know in a few days I am headed someplace new, so I’ll suffer through it. • Don’t forget to follow Greg Van Belle on Twitter @gregvanbelle. His email is

Running to support Oso’s recovery


ndoubtedly, you were as shocked as I was on the morning of March 22nd upon hearing about a terrible landslide that wiped out an entire neighborhood, claiming over 40 lives in the small Snohomish County community of Oso. Immediately folks throughout the state wanted to help. The Arlington Runners Club (ARC) was no exception. Arlington is only a few miles from Oso, and almost everyone in this small city knew someone who was affected by this disaster. ARC president Jon Hatfield figured the best way that he and his club could help his neighbors in need was by staging a benefit run.

victims of the slide. Families and folks of all persuasions and running abilities then took to the course at the Arlington Airport Trails. When it was all over, nearly $24,000 was raised—and at the time of this writing more funds are still being pledged! “My heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this run such a fantastic event,” says Hatfield. “We had at least two people from the landslide at the event. One was Natasha, who lost her mother and four-monthold baby, and another was a woman who survived the slide. She shared with us her appreciation. I am so proud of everyone coming together for Oso.” Me too. Great job, ARC and Skagit Runners, for making a big difference. Just a few days before the Oso Benefit Run, many of us were The ARC is no stranger to putting on fundraising runs for charfocused on the Boston Marathon. One year after the tragic ity and stages a handful each year. But Jon and the club really bombings, thousands of runners and many from the Northwest wanted to put on a big event—and soon, and they knew they ran united at America’s most prestigious marathon. The big would need some assistance. They reached out to the Skagit news, of course, was that this was the first time an American Runners, who gladly assisted by providing chip timing and has won the race since 1983. Yay, Meb!

John was the first CNW athlete to cross the line, coming in 55th with a time of 2:27:20.” While Boston may be one of the world’s most prestigious races, it’s not in the top ten when it comes to participants. That honor goes back and forth between a few events that I’m willing to wager most of you have never heard of. Well, CNW member Joe Bisignano recently participated in one of those events— Spain’s Cursa el Corte de Ingles. Europe’s largest road race, the Cursa el Corte de Ingles consists of a certified 10.766K course and is free to enter. This year’s race had over 73,000 participants, Bisignano among them! Bisignano landed in Barcelona for the race just 12 hours before it began. His first challenge aside from jetlag was not having a timing chip for the race. He didn’t realize that in Spain you buy your own to use for all of your races. Bisignano’s next challenge was trying to get a decent seeding. “He used his language ignorance to his advantage and managed to sneak into the third corral,” reports Keller. “The excitement, green confetti cannons and the crowd helped Bisignano overcome his jetlag,” reports Keller, “though the hills cruelly snapped him back to reality.” With no chip Bisignano wasn’t quite clear what his time was or his placing. “All I can say for certain is that I was in the top 100 overall and the race was lots of fun,” he says. After the race Joe and his wife headed to an island in Greece. There being a runner was kind of a novelty and Bisignano stood out. “But that has gotten me invited to a huge family party where I was told wine would help my running while forkfuls of food were passed my way,” he says. Hmm, if wine and heaps of food could only help my running—I’d be one fast runner! Summer’s almost here. See you at those club runs and events! •

Train and race your best — nutrition tips for optimal performance


ith warm weather finally arriving, runners are training for summer races and events. Though they may be committed to a rigorous training schedule, many are unaware that their diet is preventing them from achieving optimal performance. If you feel like you’re not getting the most from your training program, it may be time for a nutrition makeover. Here are some common sports nutrition red flags.

Chronic fatigue and low energy

Most runners experience workouts where their energy and endurance aren’t optimal. This can occur during periods of stress, increasing mileage or inadequate sleep. But if low energy and fatigue are consistent, it’s time to take a look at your nutrition. Runners that limit their carbohydrate intake in an effort to lose weight often find they don’t have sufficient glycogen, or stored carbohydrate, to fuel their longer runs. Endurance athletes need to consume at least 55 to 65 percent of their calories from carbohydrate to maintain consistent energy. Fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy products are the main sources of carbohydrate, so make sure to include these food groups in every meal and snack.

Stomach issues during runs

GI issues are a major problem for some distance runners. In order to make it through long runs, they don’t Focusing on optimal nutrition can boost eat before workouts, limit fueling and your running performance without hydration during runs, and always training any harder. martin rudow (mr) know the location of the nearest restphoto. room.

interfere with your training and performance, consulting with a sports nutritionist can be a helpful strategy.

Chronic muscle cramps and soreness

Chronic muscle cramps or muscle soreness can really hinder your training program. The risk of cramps increases with fatigue or hot temperatures, especially for less seasoned runners. But muscle cramps are often related to a lack of fueling and hydration. Dehydration can trigger muscle cramps, especially during the later phases of an event, so aim to drink enough fluids to maintain your body weight within 2 to 3 percent. Most sports drinks and gels contain electrolytes, which help maintain the blood’s normal balance, but athletes prone to muscle cramps may need additional electrolytes. Carbohydrate depletion can also lead to cramps, since carbohydrate is required to fuel muscles for both contraction and relaxation. Make sure you’re fueling with energy products during workouts lasting more than 90 minutes, and eat a sports diet loaded with high-carbohydrate foods.

Large fluctuations in weight

Runners often celebrate when the scale drops a few pounds, but that can be a sign of dehydration or glycogen depletion rather than healthy weight loss. It’s important to monitor weight changes during training, especially if your weight fluctuates more than 3 to 4 pounds per week. Weighing yourself before and after a long run can help determine if you were adequately hydrated. For every pound lost, aim to consume another 16 ounces of fluid during your next long run. Another red flag to watch for is a steady drop in weight over the course of a training week. If this is accompanied by a drop in energy, it’s likely due to

dehydration and decreasing glycogen stores. If your weight increases and energy improves after rehydration, highcarbohydrate meals and a rest day, you were probably depleted.

Frequent illness and injury

Poor nutrition can also impair an athlete’s immune system. If you aren’t consuming enough calories, protein, carbohydrate and good nutrition, your body can’t produce sufficient immune factors to maintain optimal health. If you experience frequent colds or sickness, especially during the sum-

Decreased performance despite increased training

Runners should see increases in strength and endurance over the course of their training season. Lack of improvement or drops in performance can signal an imbalance in training or a lack of supporting nutrition. Inadequate nutrition is often the issue when runners are focused on weight loss. Without sufficient calories and carbohydrate, their energy for training is limited and recovery from workouts is compromised. Their bodies don’t become fitter and stronger, since their muscles never fully recover from

Dehydration and inadequate nutrition can also increase risk for injury. Chronic muscles strains, stress fractures and soft tissue injuries are more common when nutrition is inadequate.

Constant cravings and eating binges For many runners, the best part of a long run is rewarding themselves with a big juicy burger and fries or half a pizza and a couple of beers. But if you find yourself constantly craving high-fat, highcalorie foods or binging on ice cream, cookies or bowls of cereal at night, it’s time to review your diet. Cravings like this are often signals your body is short on calories or carbohydrate. Binging on these foods may help to close the calorie gap, but it won’t fuel your body with the best nutrition for optimal performance. A good way to evaluate your nutritional balance is with an online program or app like Enter your height, weight, age, food intake and exercise, and you’ll see where your diet falls short of your daily goals. Monitoring your daily calorie balance is a great way to make sure you’re optimizing your nutrition for energy and performance.

Make the most of your training

Focusing on optimal nutrition is the best way to maximize your training and performance. When you learn to eat a balanced training diet, fuel well during workouts, and refuel your body for recovery, your training will become much easier and more effective. You can actually boost your performance without training any harder…and what’s not to like about that? •

A triathlete’s guide to training and recovery


ecovery is a big topic in triathlon and running circles these days. It seems to be especially pressing for aging athletes wondering why they can’t complete that set of hard 400s on the track as fast as they could when they were in their twenties. The oft-heard refrain goes something like this: “Oof! I feel tight. I sure don’t recover from a hard workout like I used to!” The geezer usually goes on to say something to the effect that he used to do three or four hard workouts a week and now he can barely do one. It’s funny. People used to say that they had just gotten out of shape. But now there is no shortage of sales people pushing this “recovery excuse,” and in the process trying to sell you an antidote. Drink this chocolate milk and wear these calf sleeves, and you’ll be good as new in the morning! Joe Friel, a well-respected coach and author of The Triathlete’s Training Bible, wrote in 2011 that aging athletes have “lower levels of testosterone, started losing muscle mass, increased risk of osteopenia and osteoporosis (especially in cyclists), increased tendencies for acid-base imbalance, reduced sensitivity to thirst, perhaps a greater propensity for weight gain, lost soft tissue elasticity accompanied by an increased likelihood of injury, reduced enzyme activity, less tolerance for heat, and more. It isn’t pretty.” Indeed! How the hell do we manage to get out of bed in the morning! As usual, the news always sounds worse than things really are. Friel correctly adds that he doesn’t think the issue is aging so much as “detraining.” All that bad stuff listed above simply gives us less margin for error. Little injuries and pains are more common, and a missed day here and a missed day there add up over time, making it harder to hold onto our fitness. In Friel’s laundry list of elder woes, the loss of tendon flexibility and maybe “acid-base imbalance” are factors that can hinder recovery, but the main reason we oldsters don’t recover is the fact that we aren’t in as good of shape! We are probably weaker, 22


have gained a few pounds, don’t have the aerobic base we once had, and so on. It’s just a sign that our life priorities have changed since we were 25. It’s time to suck it up. Those 400s aren’t tough because you aren’t recovered from your long run on Sunday. They’re tough because you skipped the last three speed sessions at the track because you were busy. So what’s a healthy, motivated athlete suffering from TMB (too many birthdays) to do? Here are five ways you can structure your triathlon training so that you will live forever and always win your age group. Spread out long rides and long runs. Most triathletes who work normal hours try to squeeze two long workouts into the weekend – long bike ride on Saturday and long run on Sunday. This leads to injury every time. It is Stop comparing yourself smarter to do only one “long” your younger you; train and workout each weekend. You race your best and be happy can still train the other day, with that. wade praeger but it should be of moderate photos . distance and intensity. Some lucky souls have the flexibility to do a long ride on the weekend and squeeze in a long run mid-week. But if that’s not you then you need to alternate your long runs, rides and long bricks, each weekend. Make strength training the focus of your training, not an afterthought. In my younger days, I trained so hard, I rarely had time for strength training. An hour of lifting weights usually meant sacrificing an hour on the bike or a hard set of 100s in the pool. Sacrifices I was unwilling to make. Now that I am older, I’m beginning to understand that spending a couple of hours a week doing resistance training is perhaps the most important thing I do. Hours of riding, swimming and running are just a prelude to injury if I am not first taking care of my strength, balance and core. Moderate the peaks and valleys of traditional training plans. We all adhere the “hard/easy” philosophy of condition-

w w w. n w r u n n e r. c o m • J U N E 2 014

ing, but when you are older you should moderate the swings so you prevent yourself from repeatedly toying with that red line of overtraining. Of course you can still do some super hard efforts – you can’t get stronger without them – but you need to strategically plan them so you are adequately rested before and poised to recover after. The same goes for long-term “periodization” of your training. The biggest mistake older athletes make is taking a big chunk of time off in the winter to “recover.” When you are 20, it seems like you can take two months off and then train for a month and get back to baseline. After age 40, if you take two months off, it’s at least eight months until you are back to where you started. That’s assuming you can train for eight months straight without distractions or injury.

At age 20, it seems like you can take two months off and then get into great shape after training for a month. Learn to be flexible. I’m not talking about being able to touch your toes (though that’s a good idea too); I mean you should try and build some flexibility into your training week. If you miss a run because of work, shift your rest day and do the run some other time. Seems obvious, but I see coached athletes all the time who hate making changes. PS: I need to thank and recognize my friend Patty at Northwest Tri and Bike who told me that she is tired of reading articles and blog posts from aging athletes complaining about the ravages of time and generally making excuses for declining performance. She reminded me that it’s just no fun listening to excuses, even if they’re legitimate. Everyone’s got excuses that fall somewhere on the spectrum between “Act of God” to “Whoops!” Getting older of course falls closer to Act of God, but still, it’s a lame excuse. Because I know I’m as likely as the next guy to tilt at the windmills of time, I have invented something I call a “PRTD.” Personal Record This Decade. No longer do you need to compare yourself to that long-dead younger You. Don’t even bother comparing yourself to the other nerds in your age group. Just do the best you can and be happy with that. If nothing else, you’ll be a lot more fun to talk to before and after your race. • Wade Praeger coaches all sorts of competitive athletes helping them achieve their running, cycling, swimming, and triathlon goals.

Finding the Bunion Derbies



e limits of human h t r endu g fo n i ranc h c r a e e S

I first learned about the Bunion Derbies—the nickname for the two great trans-American footraces held in the late 1920s—while writing an article for the March 1999 edition of Northwest Runner, titled “The Great Port Townsend to Port Angeles Bunion Derby of 1929”. In this race, 52 seemingly sane men ran about 50 miles from Port Townsend to Port Angeles for a small cash prize. These runners were not university-trained athletes or members of athletic clubs, but rather everyday working men with jobs as farmers, letter carriers and construction workers. They entered the race with little or no training. Less than half completed the race and those that did staggered across the finish line with blood-soaked shoes and blisters the size of half dollars. I kept asking myself what had motivated these men to attempt such a thing—and where did the funny-sounding race name come from? Over the next few years, I learned that these men and many others across the country were caught up in a brief fascination with ultramarathoning that blossomed in the late 1920s, the twilight of the decade nicknamed the Jazz Age. From Conway, Missouri, to Port Angeles, average Joes were testing the limits of 24

human endurance. They had been motivated by the granddaddy of all endurance races, the first ever transcontinental footrace across America, better know as the 1928 Bunion Derby, where everyday men chased a $25,000 cash prize by doing what many observers though impossible to do, namely, running ultramarathons daily for 84 days. When 55 of the 199 men completed the trans-American journey with no ill effects, Americans had to reevaluate their understanding of the ability of human beings to run extremely long distances. Seattle had caught bunion derby fever too. In 1929, the city was a buzz with excitement over a 52-mile walking race around Lake Washington, nicknamed the Lake Hike. In the March 2001 cover story for this magazine, I described how thousands of men and women left Seattle around midnight by following a lanternlit Rainier Avenue south to Renton, before heading north to walk the eastside of the lake to Bellevue, then returning to Se-

attle in the late morning after passing through Bothell to the north. It was a citywide party that celebrated pressing the limits of human endurance. The Lake Hike’s first woman star, Bertha Woodward, was a poor laundry woman who won the women’s division and used the prize money to buy a house and move her two daughters out of an unpainted shack that, until then, had served as their home. This fascination with the bunion derbies reflected the optimism of the times. New technologies—cars, radios, electricity, airplanes and motion pictures—had profoundly reshaped society. The nation was crackling with growth and activity. Twentyseven million cars clogged roads that had been quiet at the start decade. This in turn set off a boom in road building and oil production. America was the world’s engine of prosperity after it helped win the First World War. Wages soared and the loosely regulated stock market boomed. The party seemed destined to go on forever—fueled by illegal booze in this time of Prohibition.

the mostly unpaved Route 66 across the American West. The men first faced the blast furnace of the Mojave Desert, then a brutal climb into the Arizona high country where they crossed the Continental Divide at 7,200 feet. From there, they ran across New Mexico, then through ankle-deep mud on unpaved roads

The four African American bunioneers had the added burden of facing a firestorm of hate from white Texans enraged that blacks would challenge whites in an integrated race in the segregated South. The bunioneers made up the rules of transcontinental racing as they went. The 55 men who survived to reach New York City had experienced a test of endurance that few of them could have imagined when they started the race in Los Angeles. The finishers were our first ironmen, true pioneers of ultramarathoning.

The 1928 Bunion Derby

I chronicled the first bunion derby in my 2007 book, titled Bunion Derby: The 1928 Footrace Across America. On March 4, 1928, 199 men assembled in Los Angeles for an 84-day footrace across the nation. Few of the men had any training. Most observers believed that few if any of these “bunioneers” would reach the finish at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The first 500 miles of the race provided a brutal, gut-busting initiation to the rigors of daily ultramarathon racing as the runners followed

In my latest book, The 1929 Bunion Derby: Johnny Salo and the Great Footrace Across America, 43 veterans from the first race joined 34 rookie runners for the start of the second and last Bunion Derby. This time, race director Charley Pyle reversed course, and the men left New York for Los Angeles on March 31, 1929. As in the first derby, the men had come for prize money, chasing $25,000 for first place, $10,000 for second, with the remaining $25,000 spread between third and fifteenth place. The Bunion Derby had a simple set of rules: Run or walk on your own two feet and finish by midnight. Each day’s race was called a “stage race” with the men starting together then racing to the next designated town along the course, which was called the “con- Johnny Salo (107) with two other trol.” As the men bunioneers on Route 66, Oklahoma, finished the race, at the 1928 race. courtesy of el reno their times from the carnegie library.

stage race were added to their cumulative totals. The man with the lowest cumulative time would win the derby and its $25,000 cash prize—ten to fifteen times the annual salary of an average worker. This was enough money to buy a house, pay off a mortgage and make a better life for their families. The 34 rookie runners would soon discover they were in for the fight of their lives if they hoped to win a share of the prize money. The 1928 veterans had written the rulebook on running across America. Questions of hydration, pace, training, diet, footwear and clothing all had been worked out in a brutal trial-and-error process. The rookies were simply no match for these battlehardened veterans. By the end of the first week, many of the rookies were gone. As the men headed east from Baltimore they faced 90-degree heat as they crossed the rolling Appalachian Mountains that separate the eastern seaboard from America’s hinterland. By the time the derby reached Ohio, three veteran bunioneers had emerged to compete for the $25,000 prize: Eddie Gardner of Seattle, Johnny Salo from Passaic, New Jersey, and Pete Gavuzzi of England.

In one case, a white man trained a rifle on his back and rode behind him on horseback for an entire day, daring him to pass another white man. In another case, a white mob surrounded his trainer’s car and threatened to burn it if Gardner stayed in the race. Despite this abuse, he stayed in the derby and finished in eighth place. Eddie returned for the 1929 race as a more patient and disciplined runner, blessed with a graceful stride that caught the eye of anyone who saw him run.

The Sheik of Seattle

Twenty-nine-year-old Eddie “the Sheik” Gardner was Seattle’s greatest ultramarathoner of the last century. (I made my case for Eddie, in a November 2007 article in Northwest Runner.) Wearing a white towel tied around his head, with a white sleeveless shirt and white shorts, he looked like the dashing matinee idol Rudolph Valentino, who portrayed desert sheiks in the silent pictures. As Eddie trained, legions of his Seattle fans would cry out, “oh, you sheik,” and the nickname stuck. As an African American, he faced the wrath of southern whites in the 1928 derby, including daily death threats and torrents of racial slurs.

Johnny Salo was the poster child for the American dream. He had entered the 1928 race with just $11 in his pocket and a dream that he would win the $25,000 and make a better life for his wife and two small children. At 34, this often unemployed Finnish immigrant had survived the brutal Mojave and the Arizona high country to emerge as a runner with unbelievable grit and endurance. His style was stiff and mechanical as he ploughed through mud, rain and snow with an intense forward-looking stare. By the time he reached his hometown of Passaic, New Jersey, he was anchored in second place with its $10,000 cash prize. He had become a local hero to city residents who followed his progress across the nation in the local press. A grateful city council offered him a commission as a city police officer, in thanks for all the positive publicity he had brought Passaic. Johnny’s days of

He used his prize money to by a cozy house and settled down to walk a beat as the “flying cop from Passaic.” In 1929 he took a leave of absence from the force and entered the 1929 race as the heir apparent to win the second Bunion Derby.

The bearded wonder

Pete Gavuzzi of England had a grudge to settle. In 1928, this diminutive, trilingual 22-year-old bunioneer had a lock on first place and its $25,000 in prize money. With only days to go in the race, he was forced out with infected tooth that made it impossible for him to eat. He literally ran out of gas with the prize money in his grasp. Gavuzzi, who would not shave for the duration of the 1929 race, was the Fred Astaire of the Bunion Derby, with a flowing and seemingly effortless style. He had returned to reclaim his $25,000 prize.

The Director General

Leading the derby parade across America was Charley Pyle, the paunchy, middle-aged sports agent who directed the first bunion derby the year before. In 1925, Pyle was an obscure figure until he signed the greatest football player of the decade, Red Grange, to a professional sports contract. Under Pyle’s leadership both men made a fortune, but Charley bled away most of what he

had made when he established his own NFL team and managed the first derby. Pyle was a marketing genius but an abysmal manager. In 1929, Pyle was teetering on bankruptcy, but he still thought he could make trans-America racing a profitable affair on his second try. His money-making engine would be his traveling vaudeville group, C. C. Pyle’s Cross Country Follies, complete with a New York dance troupe dubbed the Dancing Debutants, an all-women band wearing pilot outfits, and blackface comedians. Pyle housed his troupe under a massive circus tent that he hoped he would pack with paying customers to come up with the $60,000 in total prize money. Charley, who grandly dubbed himself the Director General of the Bunion Derby, had no other sources of income. He had to make the follies a paying proportion if he had any hope of paying his bunioneers their prize money.

The final battles

As the bunioneers crossed Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, the three front-runners, Salo, Gavuzzi and Gardner, kept pushing each other to go faster, often running 30 to 40 miles a day at a seven to eight minute per mile pace. The rest of the runners kept shaking their heads in wonder as the three men pulled farther away from the pack. In the 1928 race, Andy Payne of Oklahoma had won the contest by “stepping along” at about a ten minute per mile pace. J U N E 2 014 • w w w. n w r u n n e r. c o m









bunion derbies continued

When the derby reached the Mississippi River after 25 days, and 1,000 miles of racing, Eddie “the Sheik” Gardner had a statement to make. Across the river was Missouri—and a return to Jim Crow segregation, the nickname for a system of separate but woefully unequal access to education and basic services that kept African Americans locked into a permanent underclass. Gardner knew what awaited him after his experience in 1928, but he put his fears aside, pinned a small American flag to his racing singlet and sped through the short, by derby standards, 22-mile course at sub three-hour marathon pace. Gardner had returned to the south with an American flag on his chest, a man willing to die for his cause. Sadly, a leg injury forced Gardner out of the contest in Oklahoma, turning the bunion derby into a two-man race between Salo and Gavuzzi. The duo chased each other across Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. In one legendary run, Johnny Salo ran for 56 miles across the Sonora desert at a 7:42-per-mile pace in blistering heat on a dusty unpaved road to open a two-hour lead over his English

By the time the race reached Los Angeles, only nine minutes separate the two front-runners. In an epic finish around an outdoor track, Salo eked out a victory by two minutes after 78 days and more than 3,500 miles of running. Pyle could not produce the prize money, leaving his brave bunioneers emptyhanded and embittered. As the gloom of the Great Depression engulfed the country a few months later, the country lost its fascination with breaking endurance records and the 1929 Bunion Derby faded away into obscurity—but it deserves to be remembered and honored as the greatest footrace of its age. Those who overlooked it missed an epic event. For 78 days, Johnny Salo and Pete Gavuzzi chased each other across the mostly unpaved roads of 1929 America at an 8:53-per-mile pace. Their pace is at least as good as or better than the paces set in any other trans-America race or multi-

day ultramarathon event in history. The duo achieved this pace without today’s high-tech running shoes, clothing, nutritional supplements and medical support, and they did so by using hardwon survival lessons learned in the first Bunion Derby. The bunioneers should be honored by anyone who takes up the sport of ultramarathoning and, for that matter, by anyone who admires courage and perseverance in the face of impossible odds.

HOKA ONE ONE® and Peter Thompson revive The RACE The RACE, once one of the most prestigious and important road races in the Northwest, if not the country, is coming back, as The RACE – Revived. Taking place on the same Eugene course as The RACE that ran from 1983 to 1990, The RACE – Revived promises to be as fun and exciting as the original as runners take on the flat, fast, and scenic USATF-certified road course on Sunday, June 15, 2014. Limited to just 5,000 runners, The RACE – Revived promises to be a fast, fun event for all. It will raise funds for the Eugene Health & Performance Foundation’s racing team ‘The Spirit of Oregon’. Along with awards for top division finishers, everyone who enters and finishes The RACE - Revived will be eligible to win a brand new Chevrolet Sonic LT! With a field limited to 5,000, the chances of scoring a prize of this caliber are significantly better than in an average lottery. “The RACE was a significant road running event in the Northwest running scene back Results plaques are still in in the 1980s and early place at the start/finish line of 90s and provided real the old course for The RACE. excitement for all,” said Race Director and event founder, Peter Thompson. So important to the event was Thompson that, despite its popularity, it simply folded shortly after he left the area. He has returned as so has The RACE. The RACE was a premier event right away. The first year saw a field of 4,000+, and it grew rapidly to 7,000+, with many of the

very best runners in the country at the top. It joined Boston Marathon in being the only road races in the USA that at the time had a permanent finish line painted on a city street. The RACE finishes on Pearl Street, Eugene between the City Hall and Lane County building. The women’s course record was set by our own Regina Joyce, 25:50 in 1983. In the eight years it was held several world-class women tried to beat Regina’s course record, including a who’s who of top runners of the era: Marty Cooksey, Cathie Twomey, Nan Doak, and Annette Peters Hand among them.

Top runners competed in The RACE, as witness this plaque from the 1983 edition. The men’s course record, 22:54 was set by Kevin Ryan in 1983, who won The RACE six times between 1983 and 1990. “Eugene, Oregon is the epicenter of running in the U.S.A.,” said Jim Van Dine, Brand President at HOKA ONE ONE. “So when Peter mentioned his hopes of resurrecting this classic middle distance event, it made perfect sense for HOKA ONE ONE to get involved and support a great running event in a great running community.” As if any more proof was needed to back up the claim that Eugene is the “epicenter of running in the U.S.A”, participants in The RACE – Revised can hang around for the year’s top Track & Field meet, the NCAA Division One Championships. This meet will be going on at the nearby University of Oregon the same weekend.

Daffodil 5K Challenge four adventures in one day BY CI N DY CARDEN A S


he challenge was on. I was going to run the Daffodil 5K Challenge: four 5Ks in four cities in one day on the parade route of the Daffodil Festival. I checked a weather app all week to see what kind of conditions I would be running in, but it didn’t look promising. I also used a map app to locate the start of each race and to find the best way to get to them. And when the race courses were released, I took pictures of them to get an idea of where I would be running. Pre-race rituals were next on my list. Normally you pick one outfit to wear for race day. But packing for four races was a challenge. With rain in the forecast and a break of one to two hours between races, I knew I would have time to change if necessary, even if it was just to put on dry socks between events. Water, gum, towel, hat, running jacket, extra running shoes and clothes, camera, charged iPhone and headphones, and a change of post-race clothes were all thrown into a bag. The morning of the challenge, I looked out the window to prepare myself for the 32


predicted rain. Instead I saw sun breaks! Daffodil 5K Challenge, here I come!

My best friend Greg agreed to be the driver. This way I’d have someone to talk to, cheer me on and take pictures, and I could relax. He drove me to the first race in Tacoma. Parking was not a problem, check in was easy, and it wasn’t raining (yet). While there wasn’t a huge group of runners, there was only one port-a-potty – and one long line. I was pretty happy I had run back into my house to use my bathroom before we left. The course was a couple of loops and an out-and-back with some accompanying cheers along the way from a few groups of parade goers. I was pleasantly surprised that my finish time was around the 25-minute mark. A quick check at the results table showed 25:27. Race one, done! Since we had two-plus hours until the next race, we decided to check out some parade floats, people watch, and cheer on the last finisher. Then we were off to Puyallup. Remembering the single port-

a-potty, I knew the next challenge would be to find a bathroom. Fred Meyer in Puyallup was my choice.

Puyallup: thank goodness the weatherman was wrong

This race had more road closures, making it a bit more challenging, but we still managed to arrive with plenty of time. This race had upped the ante: there were three port-a-potties. We had some fun with this as a guy with a megaphone encouraged participants to be speedy so everyone could get the job done. I also met the nicest gals in line who I’d see throughout the day. A few words at the start line from the director – and a few people running from the bathrooms – and we were off. This race was an out-and-back on a very flat course. There were lots of volunteers at every corner with arrows to point the way and lots of parade parties in the front yards of the neighborhood we ran through. The crowd cheered us on while they waited for the parade to start. While there was a little bit of rain and some wind, the weather was still coop-

erating. At the finish line I was happy to see my time of 24 minutes. I went to the results table, but the officials couldn’t find my result. They assured me my time would be recorded, so we headed to the next race. I had a little over an hour until the start of the Sumner 5K. Finding a bathroom

started with the director warning us that one road was not closed to traffic. We could run on the sidewalk and we found an open bicycle lane. The gals I met in the bathroom line were there. We were off on another fast out-and-back. No troubles on the open street, a run down Main Street with parade goers cheering us on. My favorite cheer came from a

I also decided to eat something since the previous races had water but no fruit or bagels at the finish. Hash browns and yogurt hit the spot.

Sumner: bring on the cheering crowds

With some road closures and no left turns, we made a few U-turns before arriving at the next race. This event

little girl. If she only knew I was on my third race that day! It was a bit windier and I felt slower, but the finish line clock said otherwise. Really? I made a quick trip to the results table to see what was going on. I had run a 25:05 and my for Puyallup was 24:44. These were not normal times for me. Was it being in a challenge? Or was it the cheering from the crowds?

Orting: racing to the finish line

We had another long wait until the Orting 5K. The challenge to find a bathroom with the big group of parade goers in this town seemed impossible. Then my friend noticed the library was open. Score! In Orting the weather app was finally right: the rain started pouring down. My feet were feeling it now too. I took a bottle of water and poured it on them. Relief! I finally used a pair of the extra socks I packed. The start line was at a trailhead. This course was a flat out-and-back, entirely on a trail. Rain didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s mood for the last part of the challenge. We ran past pastures, a river and lots of mud puddles with little boys running through them. My new bathroom friends ran by and patted me on the back. I ran this last 5K feeling really slow in the rain, thinking that I hadn’t stopped once, that I wasn’t crazy, that I really had done it and that I shouldn’t be disappointed with my finish time. But at the finish line, I was once again surprised. It was just over 25 minutes. After getting my Daffodil Challenge Medal from one of the princesses braving the rain in her gown, I checked the results: 25:37. Wow, I impressed myself. I completed the Daffodil 5K Challenge with a group of people who smiled all day. The challenge of figuring out what to take for a full day of races in different cities – and finding bathrooms – was part of the fun. Would I do it again? Yes! Though, I would recommend bringing snacks because I expected some at the finish. Thanks to my friend Greg who drove me around for this challenge. It made my day go so smoothly. Hmmm, maybe that’s why my race times were so good. •

The U.S. healthcare crisis: Is running the solution?


unners, your country needs you. The United States is currently undergoing a healthcare crisis. Heart disease, diabetes and cancer are the leading causes of death. Obesity and lack of physical activity are the two main risk factors that are directly related to these diseases. Individuals who are obese and physically inactive have a 42 percent increase in mortality. Our country has stopped moving, and it is taking its toll. Only one out of five of adults in the United States currently meets the minimum standard of physical activity. In fact, today’s 10 year olds are the first generation expected to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents. Runners are at the forefront of the solution to the crisis that our country is facing. By inspiring others to get moving, we can make a huge impact on the health and vitality of our communities. The self-assessment is a great place to start to inspire exercise. It provides information on the quantity and intensity of exercise required to live longer. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend 75 minutes of vigorous exercise per week to achieve the health benefits of exercise. Running meets the activity requirements for vigorous exercise. Studies performed specifically on runners not only support the recommendations of the CDC, but also dispel some of the myths of running injuries. Research shows that runners have a decreased incidence of cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol and depression. In addition, running may not be as stressful to the joints as once thought. A Stanford researcher found that there was no dif34


ference in osteoarthritis in the knees between runners and non-runners. In fact, a study out of the British Journal of Sports Medicine showed that the onset of disability (difficulty walking, standing, performing daily activities) in people over the age of 60 was 16 years later in runners versus nonrunners. Convincing someone who has been inactive to start a running program can be challenging. Many fear running

because of risk of injury. The human body is an amazing biomechanical machine that responds to physical stress by adapting and getting stronger. If the stress is applied in the correct dose, the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints will adapt and get stronger. However, if the dosage is increased too quickly,

tissue breakdown can lead to injuries. One reason for high injury rates, especially in runners and athletes over the age of 30, is that cardiovascular fitness improves faster than tissue fitness. In other words, your lungs and heart get in shape in less time than it takes for your body’s tendons, joints and ligaments to learn to tolerate the increased loading of running. Another reason for running injuries is that the impact of running can produce forces of 6-10 times your body weight. The following recommendations will help you to avoid injury when starting or helping someone start a running program. Start with a run/walk method. Louise Seeley, leader of the Boise Galloway Training Group, recommends the Galloway Run Walk Run method ( for all levels of runners. This method provides specific run to walk intervals that are based on the participants’ running experience and fitness level. She feels it is a safer way to run because the walk breaks allow you to cover the distance with less muscle fatigue. Decreased fatigue results in less injuries and faster recovery. She has observed that many experienced runners are surprised they can actually improve

their race times using this method. Stretch after you run. Studies have shown that stretching before a run can actually increase your risk of injury. Take the time to stretch key muscle groups after your run. Visit treasure-valley-boise/state-street/injuryprevention-for-the-runner/ for a list of effective post-running stretches. Run with short strides. Running with shorter strides has been shown to decrease joint impact forces at the knees and hips. Count the number of times your feet hit the ground in a minute. For me, as a physical therapist who specializes in treating runners, teaching runners to use a short stride and high cadence has been one of the most effective techniques in treating and preventing injuries. Running may lead to soreness in the muscles, tendons and joints. However, if one understands the reason for the discomfort, this may not discourage continued exercise. One source of body pain with exercise is inflammation. Inflammation is the process that our bodies use to heal. The inflammatory process can lead to pain, but it is also an

integral component of the body’s ability to heal and adapt. Generally, significant soreness usually only lasts only 24 to 48 hours after a workout. Signs and symptoms that suggest overtraining include severe, sharp joint or tendon pains, pain that keeps you awake at night, swelling or redness, excessive fatigue or frequent illness. If you are experiencing these types of symptoms, take a week off from running and then slowly ease back into your normal workout program. If you need more guidance, join a local running group or a coached training program. In Boise, there are several running programs and groups that meet one to two times per week for organized runs and coaching. Another way to get motivated is to pick a local event and train for it. Most communities will have races at distances ranging from 5K up to 30K. Hopefully this information will not only keep you running but will also help you inspire someone else to start running. The answer to many of our country’s healthcare troubles is to simply get people moving. Take your passion for running and help your friends, family and community. •

CHENEY Small university city offers rural and scenic running at the edge of the Columbia Plateau

The Olin Peach Fun Run attracts many students and alumni of Spangle’s Upper Columbia Academy. don klinger photo.

great establishment. This took a few trial runs before the club settled on the Zentropa Pizzeria and Pub, “an awesome pizzeria and craft brew pub,” says Cindric. The second principle the club follows is to be free and open to anyone and everyone. “Our motto is run, walk, crawl at your own pace,” states Cindric. The third principle is to have participants earn their club shirt. After eight runs (about a marathon’s worth of miles) participants can opt to buy a coveted club shirt. The fourth principle is to have beer and food specials (at Zentropa, of course) for those who earn their shirt. And the fifth is to keep it simple and let the club grow at its own pace. “Recently we have had over 230 people run with the club and had 35 people at our first run of the 2014 season,” says Cindric. Interested in exploring Cheney by foot? By all means, get in contact with the club ( The website lists some of the club’s favorite routes around the city and EWU campus. The quiet city has some nice roads and neighborhoods for running. But there are some nice trails to explore too, and they’re just minutes from downtown. The club recently sponsored Cheney’s first half marathon as one of its club runs. It was open and free to anyone who had run at least once with the club. “We mapped out an awesome route that begins and ends at Zentropa and highlights some of Cheney’s best running roads,” says Cindric. “We had a great turnout and are going to now make it an annual event.”

Best places to run

Cheney hosts a handful of organized runs each year. But before I tell you about them, let’s talk about some of the city’s best places to run. The Columbia Plateau Trail goes right though the southern reaches of the city. Administered by Washington State Parks (, this former

If you follow the trail west from Cheney, you get to enjoy a nearly 5-mile soft surface route through the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. This wonderful refuge encompasses over 18,000 acres of diverse habitat on the Channeled Scablands. There are several wooded roads and trails that traverse this

Check out the refuge in the fall when golden aspen groves and migrating birds, including swans, make this place magical. Cindric says “the best-kept running secret in Cheney is the Wetlands Trail.” Located next to the Columbia Plateau Trail, this city-owned 110-acre property has there are four to six miles of nice trail. The Cheney Parks and Recreation Department has been hosting its annual Cheney Wetland 2- and 4-mile Run and Walk there every May since 2011. This is a great way to experience the wetland trails system.

Annual running events

The easternmost 23 miles have been upgraded and maintained and offer the best running opportunities. The trail is paved for 4 miles from Cheney to Fish Lake, where it ties into the Fish Lake Trail, a 7-mile paved trail all the way to Spokane. I have run and bicycled this section on a couple of occasions and love the scenery and wildlife. You’ll pass by small ponds, wetlands, pine groves and ledges. There’s always a good chance of seeing coyotes, owls, hawks and deer along the way. It is a very rural run, yet so close to Spokane.

Are you interested in a few more local races? Eastern Washington University will be hosting its second annual Terror Trot this October 24th. Costume wearing is encouraged and lots of prizes will be awarded, as well as several finishing awards. The race is a benefit for the school’s track and field programs. It was a great success last year. “It will be on a Friday evening this year to give it more of a dark and spooky feel!” says race director Chris Zeller. Race forms will be available at Thanksgiving in Cheney means it’s time once again for the Cheney Turkey Trot, a 3-mile run and 2-mile fun walk. This year’s race will be the seventh annual. The race continues to grow and become a part of many a Cheney runner’s holiday tradition. “I wanted to do something fun in Cheney as a community event, and promote running and families being active,” say race founder and director Jay Martin. “I love watching people reconnect at this race for one of the most fun mornings of the year.” The race is held at Cheney High School and sponsored by the cross country team. Portions of the proceeds are donated to the local food bank. There are lots of giveaways for participants that include turkeys, pies and EWU gear from local businesses. To get a form for this year’s race, email Jay at jmartin@cheneysd. org. Another fun local race you may want to check out is the Olin Peach Fun Run held at the Upper Columbia Academy (UCA) in nearby Spangle. “This fun run is a memorial to Olin J.

Upon retiring after 38 years at Upper Columbia, he continued to be involved with students, organizing and leading mission trips to Mexico, Africa and Borneo in Malaysia,” says Karl. “Mr. Peach ran in 19 of the first 20 Bloomsday runs and was seeded in his age group. He stopped only after being told he was due for a new knee in his sixties,” says Karl. The race is held during the school’s alumni weekend.

This year’s race (http:// is scheduled for October 5th. There is a 10K, 5K and 1-mile walk, followed by a pancake breakfast for all. “This is definitely a family-oriented event, and jogging strollers and dogs on leash are welcome,” says Karl. •

Javelin throw sets new school record


ne of the most pleasant stories of the local 2014 collegiate track and field season is the success of Western Washington javelin throwers Bethany Drake and Katie Reichert. Drake thrust herself into the national spotlight at the JD Shotwell Invitational, hosted by the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma on April 5th, when the sophomore from Sandy, Oregon, set a personal best by 12 feet, launching the spear 1696, which set a new school record and was the best throw by an NCAA Division II athlete since 2009. In an interview with the Bellingham Herald, Viking head coach Pee Wee Halsell said, “I was talking to a coach and watching the javelin and the rest of the track meet, and I saw it launch, and it was up in the air a long time. I didn’t know what the official mark was until after the meet was over, but it was fun watching that javelin fly.” That performance on a cold rainy day earned Drake the women’s USTFCCCA Division II national field event athlete of the week, and took away the national lead in the javelin from teammate Reichert, who threw 162-1 on March



22nd at the Oregon Preview meet in Eugene. Drake was originally a softball player before switching to track and field in high school, thanks in part to encouragement from her sister, along with a teammate who became a two-time Oregon state champ before earning a scholarship to Texas Christian University. Starting as as sophomore at Sandy High School, Drake progressed from 115 feet to 120 feet as a junior, then finished her prep career with a best of 129 feet and qualified for the Oregon state meet. At last year’s NCAA Division II championship meet, Drake, who wasn’t recruited by any school, finished 13th with a best of 138-3, despite having a season best throw almost 20 feet farther. Besides the daily push and competition with Reichert in the weight room and on the javelin runway under the watchful eye of Western throws coach Ben Stensland, who coached Monika Gruszecki to a national title in 2007 and 2011, the biggest improvement in her performance this season has been in her consistency, as she’s thrown at least 150 feet in every meet so far, a mark she only

w w w. n w r u n n e r. c o m • J U N E 2 014

hit once in 2013. Like Drake, Katie Reichert, who finished seventh in the NCAA championships last year, has been a model of consistency with her throws, launching the javelin at least 150 feet in every meet except one so far this season. Reichert, a native of Kelso, set a personal best of 162-8 at the Beach Invitational on April 19th in Cerritos, California, and is currently ranked fourth nationally in Division II. Look for Bethany and Katie to make an impact at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference championship meet, and at the NCAA Division II national championships on May 22nd-24th in Allendale, Michigan. While not getting as much publicity as their counterparts on the west side of the state, Washington State’s Ruby Roberts and Abby Regan have raised eyebrows among competitors in the Pac-12 Conference. At the Stanford Invitational in early April, Regan, a junior from Australia, finished sixth in the 800m with a personal best of 2:07.07 to become the eighth fastest in school history. In the same

meet, Roberts set a school record in the 5,000m, running 16:09.02. Two weeks later, at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, California, both Roberts and Regan ran personal bests in the 1,500m, clocking 4:18.57 and 4:19.49, respectively. So far this season, the contributions by both Roberts and Regan have been key to the Cougars’ undefeated dual meet season so far.

Huskies versus the Cougs

On May 3rd, the University of Washington men defeated Washington State in the annual dual meet in Pullman 84-79, while the Washington State women prevailed by one point at 82-81, preventing the Huskies from sweeping the Cougars for the first time since 1997. The Husky men built a big lead in the early events, then took an unexpected 1-2 finish in the 800m by Izaic Yorks and Derrick Daigre and a 1-3 finish in the 3,000m by Meron Simon and Aaron Nelson to seal the deal. Washington State, which was a heavy favorite to beat the UW women, was carried to victory by Mary Barnett’s

injuries since winning the 2012 NCAA 1,500m title in Des Moines, returned to her hometown to anchor both the 4 x 1,600m and distance medley relays to the victory. In the 4 x 1,600m, Flood ran an anchor leg of 4:41, giving the Huskies the win in a time of 19:09.31. Two days later, Flood ran a 4:37 anchor, as the Huskies won in a time of 11:09.59, beating second-place Baylor by nearly 3 seconds. The two victories by the Huskies gave Flood her seventh and eighth career Drake Relays championships, as she won six crowns as a high schooler at nearby Dowling Catholic High School.

Washington State alum Jeshua Anderson, who won the 400m hurdles at the Mt. SAC Relays to open his season, finished fourth at the Drake Relays, running 49.25. Vancouver’s Kara Patterson continued her comeback from a knee injury two years ago by winning the javelin in 18610, while UW alum Brad Walker was third in the Pole Vault at the Mall prelude to the Drake Relays, clearing 18-8.75, the same height as winner and reigning world- and Olympic champion Renaud Lavillenie of France. The month of May brings the start of the championship season for the area’s collegiate athletes, highlighted by the Pac-12 championships on May 17th-18th at Mooberry Track in Pullman on the campus of Washington State.
