FROM THE PRESIDENT

Senior Editor: Mark C. Syring

Dear RunMinnesota Readers,

Art Director: Jason Lehmkuhle

I am writing this letter to you slightly prematurely. To make this issue of RunMinnesota, I need to get the “President’s Letter” in before I’m even elected. The fact I am unopposed for the position elevates my chances of being elected, but only slightly for those that know me. For myself, I began running as a high school sophomore and discovered I possessed a degree of talent (that mainly being on a talented team). I ran off and on in my thirties until I was challenged to run Grandma’s in 1986. Training for the marathon was something I found very enjoyable and rewarding. Not only the physical work, but the clarity of purpose. I think most runners experience something along those lines that brings us forever back to running. Once I crossed over to Masterland, I again found a talented team, the Molar Milers, and the camaraderie and friendships like my high school team all came back. I thought it would never end. But alas, cartilage does not regenerate itself (yet), and I added “used to” to my running life just as I turned 50. Cruel fate. I don’t know the most recent or most reliable statistics concerning injured runners, but I’d venture 50 percent of runners are injured at some point of their career. Some take a week or two off and return. Some are away for a decade waiting the miracle cure. My point is a realization that injuries are definitely part of our sport. I was one when training, who could not bear to go to a race I was not able to compete in, or even watch runners going around a lake when I was on the shelf. Realizing the seriousness of my injury, it did take some difficult realizations before I called up Heidi one day and said I wanted to volunteer. Guess what. It is really fun. You see many of the same faces you competed with, but you’re handing them water, cheering them on or tearing their tag in the chute. You’re participating in running, but you are giving back instead of taking. I strongly encourage all of our members to volunteer at an MDRA Race in 2014. You’ll see things from a different angle, appreciate all the effort that goes into our races and you’ll feel good to boot.

I strongly encourage all of our members to volunteer at an MDRA Race in 2014. You’ll see things from a different angle, appreciate all the effort that goes into our races and you’ll feel good to boot.

I also want to offer my sincere thanks to our past president, Michael Iserman. Michael was an excellent president and his shoes will be hard to fill. As your (hopeful) president, I hope to carry on Michael’s push to increase membership. His last letter (November/December issue of RunMinnesota) laid out well the fundamental importance of maintaining and increasing our membership base. Sitting on the Board since being appointed when I was forced to quit running, I can attest our membership is a constant agenda item at Board meetings. The Board has come to understand as a member serving organization, spreading the word on the great value an MDRA membership brings the individual runner is fundamental. But I would like to point out MDRA also speaks for the running community. A few years ago the Minneapolis Park Board was planning on repaving West River Road running paths with concrete. Board Member Nathan Campeau intervened, and the concrete became runner preferred asphalt. MDRA works for you. Stay safe, watch for ice and enjoy every run.

Dear RunMinnesota, I want to correct two errors in the running bio of Carter Holmes in the report on the USATF MN Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The report states that Carter was a member of the NCAA Championship cross-country team in 1969. That was the Big Ten Championship team of that year. The report also states that Carter missed the finals of the NCAA Steeplechase Championship by a tenth of a second. Of course, he missed the standard for competing in the NCAA Steeplechase Championship by that small margin. Making the finals depends on placing high in the preliminaries. Thank you.

RUNNING BRIEFS Twin Cities In Motion Launches Registration for Five 2014 Race Series Twin Cities In Motion (TCM), the organizer of the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon and a host of yearround running events in Minneapolis and St. Paul, recently opened registration for five TC Challenge race series set for 2014, four of them new to the TCM line-up. The series group TCM events to help participants build toward 2014 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Weekend events on October 4 and 5 or add an extra challenge to marathon weekend for the most energetic runners. Prices for the series range from $120.00 to $270.00. Race series participants get a technical zip pullover and medal for the series, in addition to the medals and gear earned at the individual races. TCM launched its first race series, the TC Loony Challenge, last year. The TC Loony Challenge grouped three marathon weekend events: the Saturday TC 10K, TC 5K and Sunday Medtronic TC 10 Mile. The 2014 TC Loony Challenge has four new options: The TC 5K Challenge, which includes three 5Ks scheduled throughout 2014 The TC Ultra Loony Challenge, which includes the TC 10K, TC 5K and Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon, all on October 4 and 5, 2014 The TC Summit Challenge, which includes four races throughout 2014, culminating in the Medtronic TC 10 mile The TC Ultra Summit Challenge, which includes four races throughout 2014, culminating in the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon “We did focus groups and research studies last year and heard loud and clear that our runners want race series,” Twin Cities In Motion Executive Director Virginia

News and Notes from the Roads, Trails and Track

Brophy Achman said. “Runners are always looking for new ways to challenge themselves, and our series offer them an opportunity to push their fitness to a new level.” TCM, in partnership with Grandma’s Marathon and the American Birkebeiner, also organizes the Upper Midwest Endurance Challenge which groups those events and the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon into a running and skiing series. For more information on TCM and its race series and individual events, visit www.tcmevents.org.

Jeff Winter City of Lakes 25K to Change to Half Marathon After much discussion covering a number of years the MDRA Board voted at the October 21, 2013, board meeting to change the Jeff Winter City of Lakes 25K to a Half Marathon. This was a difficult decision not made lightly after 32 years of great racing. Some of the reasons for the change included changing demographics around the race and also the 25K not being as popular for a Twin Cities Marathon training race as it had previously been known for. Please check out the minutes of the October board meeting in this issue for more details. The first Jeff Winter City of Lakes Half Marathon will be held Sunday, September 7, 2014. At this time the course details are being worked out. Please see www.cityoflakeshalfmarathon.com for more information and race details. We look forward to starting a new tradition but carrying on the great history from the races that the 25K originally evolved from (the Land of Lakes Marathon and the City of Lakes Marathon) before the 32 year run as a 25K. To see how the 25K has evolved over the years, please go to the race website and read the history link.

S

ince submitting the article on Minnesota streak runners published in the September/October 2013 issue of RunMinnesota, I have received information on three more Minnesotans who have been caught streaking, giving the state a total of 54 individuals (second only to California’s 63). Nine are women, the third most of any state (California has 12 and Florida has 10). Two persons ended their daily runs, and one moved to New Mexico, giving that state their second streak runner ever. Liz Gilman is Pete’s wife, so there are now three Gilmans on the streak list, as well as three DeBoers and three Cases. Gordy Strickland has three running streaks, living in several different places, including over five years in Cottage Grove. He now resides in Rochester, Minnesota, where I have raced against him many times. His license plate reads, “I RUN,” and his tattoo reads, “Not running is Not an Option.” Brad Kautz retired from his job as an occupational therapist at the Mayo Clinic and is now pastor of a church in the town of Dulce, New Mexico. I was finally able to make contact with Mike Moser, who now lives in Newnan, Georgia. He confirmed he is still running daily, but has not registered his 33 year streak yet. #11 Mike Moser: Minneapolis, Eagan, April 26, 1980 to present (moved to Georgia January 2011) #19 Brad Kautz: moved to New Mexico August 2013 #48 Matt Daly: streak ended July 17, 2013 #49 Amber Hegland: streak ended August 29, 2013 #52 Kelly Engler: Elgin, March 12, 2011 to March 11, 2012 #53 Liz Gilman: Rochester, December 1, 2012 to present #54 Gordy Strickland: Cottage Grove, December 1991 to March 1997 (also Illinois April 1981 to February 1983, Iowa and Wisconsin October 1985 to January 1990, Wisconsin March 1990 to November 1991, Nebraska April 1997 to October 2000) By the end of December, two more with retired streaks, Brain Short (December 14), and Paul Christian (December 25) will reach the one year mark of their second and fourth sets of daily runs, respectively. This will give Minnesota 29 and a half with active streaks, as Melissa Malinowski will be at the sixth month mark. So, Minnesota may soon become the second state (California being the first) to have 30 streaking at the same time. If anyone is aware of other persons who have run daily in Minnesota, please have them get in touch with me. Contact me at deboer.stephen @mayo.edu.

GET TO KNOW

Coach Bob Hoisington BY PAT O’REGAN “All – everything I have accomplished in life, I have done because I have loved.” — Leo Tolstoy Beginnings The Coach was himself an outstanding runner. From an early age, a love of the sport was in his blood. When his family (he had two younger brothers) moved to a lake near Oronoco, Minnesota, and his father set up a business that included cabins, a gas station and a tavern, Bob, beginning in first grade, had the option of walking or running a mile to the local school. He ran both ways, every day. The high school was in Pine Island, Minnesota. Now the run was six miles, both ways, every day, though occasionally he would hitchhike home. Pine Island High School did not have track or cross country teams. Bob played baseball. Fortunately, he played for a coach sharp enough to spot his running talent. He was encouraged to run in an invitational meet in Rochester that coincided with a baseball game at the same locale. He left the game when the mile was to be run, got dressed in high topped tennis shoes and white shorts and ran his first race. “It was no contest,” Bob said. “That was how I fell in love with running.” Thus encouraged, he went on to run the 880 meters in the State meet, finishing fifth or sixth in his junior and senior years.

8

It might also be noted that Bob was an All-State Honorable Mention running back in football. A girlfriend and her father steered him to Macalester College in St. Paul.

Macalester College, Windom High School and the Army Under the direction of Coach Dave Primrose, Bob ran cross country and track all four years for Macalester. Each year, on a team that won three MIAC Championships, he was among the top seven cross country runners. In track, among 880 meter runners in the MIAC, only Jack Thomen, who would later be a life-long friend, could beat him. Bob would set a school record in the 880 that lasted for years (1:58.9). With a degree in mathematics and a firm determination to be a teacher and a coach, Bob landed a job at the high school in Windom, Minnesota. There he met Jean Meyer, his future wife. The niceties of the time making dating among faculty a matter of town gossip, they drove to nearby Worthington to spend time together. “There were lots of picnics in Worthington,” he recalled. “One day, when we were driving there, she was tickling me in the car. I told her to stop that. She didn’t. ‘If

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2014

you tickle me again,’ I finally said, ‘I’m going to pull over and give you a big kiss.’” She did, and he did. But they could not live happily ever after, right away, because the Army got him and the Korean War was on. First, he was assigned to Ft. Riley, Kansas, then, in a stroke of luck, to Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland (his unit from Ft. Riley was decimated in Korea). Jean joined Bob at Aberdeen and they were married. When his term in the Army was up, Bob mustered out, but acquiesced to remain for a year as a civilian instructor. They then moved back to Minneapolis to be with Jean’s mother, who was ill. Bob got a Masters at the University and did substitute teaching at all 11 high schools in the city. He liked Central.

Central High School In addition to teaching, Bob was head track and field and cross country coach. He developed a program that emphasized quantity (anyone could join the team) as well as quality. There was quality at the start. In just his second year, Bob’s milers (Bob Soli, Bill Wilson, Ron Daws and Jerry Larson) beat an outstanding team from Southwest High School (coached by Al Halley) in the four by one mile relay setting a national high school record in the process (18:52.4). “Now,” Coach Hoisington recalled, “we had a lot of kids that wanted to come out for track.” (Ron Daws, it

might be noted, is the future Olympian marathoner: Mexico City, 1968. “He didn’t have a lot of talent,” Coach Hoisington said, “but he ran all the time.”) To win track meets, you must have sprinters. “If you’ve got spring in your legs,” the Coach said, “you can be good in several events.” He could determine who had spring in his legs by having the athletes do a simple vertical jump. Over the years, Bob’s state champions included Carl Jones (880 meters), Leroy Martin (440 meters), Butch Miller (100 and 200 meters) and Blaine Chatham (three time 100 meters champion). His 4 x 100 relay teams at Central won the State five years in a row. “I just had a picnic coaching those runners,” the Coach recalled.

Southwest High School After 16 years at Central, Bob was asked to join Coach Halley, who would be retiring in three years, at Southwest. He made the move, coming in as head track and field coach and assistant to Halley in cross country. Under Halley, the cross country team would win the State in 1969 and 1970. “I was junior varsity coach for cross country,” Bob said. “I had those kids working hard.” His first year as head cross country coach (1971), they won the State. They repeated in 1972 and 1973 and were runnerup (by one point) in 1974. The 1980 cross country season is testament to what a coach can do during competition for a team.


They lost the city meet; the State prospects were poor. You need five good, scoring runners; Southwest had four. The fifth runner, Jeff Streit, had trouble running in a pack. If he was jostled by other runners, as he was, he ran poorly. At the State meet, Coach Hoisington held Jeff back at the starting line for 10 seconds. When finally let go, encouraged by passing other runners, he ran well, giving the team a narrow margin of victory.

The Coach’s Rules A good way to characterize Coach Hoisington is to describe in brief his approach to coaching. “I believed in two practices a day.” The team met at Lake Calhoun at 6:00 a.m. for a run around that lake and sometimes Lake of the Isles, too, for a gigantic (seven or eight mile) figure eight. If one of the runners didn’t show up, the Coach was known to go roust him out. “Boy, were they embarrassed when I came there,” the Coach said. After getting over the embarrassment, they probably also felt important and cared for. Get the Athletes to Buy into the Program In a hundred ways, Coach Hoisington got the athletes to embrace the team and the training. At the beginning of the year, he said, “I’d ask the kid, ‘What time do you want to run this year?’ ‘Okay,’ I’d say, ‘we’ll work on getting that.’” When they ran around the lakes, the runners who finished at the front would jog back to pick up the slower runners and bring them in hard. They ran their long runs in pairs, selecting their own routes and reporting to the Coach how far they had run. In interval training, they recorded their own times. Throughout the day, he told them to move fast, run between classes and to lunch. His best athlete in each event acted as a captain for the other athletes, directing the workouts (Bob had just one assistant coach at Central: Earl Bowman. At Southwest he had just two: Myers Peterson and Linton Levine). Recognition is important, of course, so the Coach kept a bul-

letin board of workouts and achievements in the school hallway. Everyone wanted to see it. In the early years, Bob ran with the team, challenging them to beat him. And so forth.

Awards and Distinctions The list would fill pages. A few highlights: • Minnesota State High School League Hll of Fame

“If you really want to get a kid in shape in a hurry, repeat 440s are the key.” Four sets of six was typical. “But don’t beat the kid up,” the Coach said. “You want him to run within himself all the time.” For distance work, just run a little faster than race pace. “Have the kids check their own pulse and let them come down to normal before running another lap.” Also, the Coach was careful about the running surface. They ran a lot on grass. “Once you get shin splints, you’re in trouble,” he said. Strength Training “I was very strict about this,” Coach Hoisington said. “I wanted them to be able to do 100 pushups… situps, too.” The team would do pushups between hill repeats at Lake Harriet, for instance. Be Passionate about the Program “I lived and breathed this stuff,” the Coach said. He kept meticulous and detailed records of every workout, writing notes evaluating each runner on the team for the day. Though it was frowned upon by the State High School League, the team ran on Sundays. “We only ran once on Sundays,” the Coach said, “At Lake Harriet in the afternoon. I’d tell the boys, ‘They’re home resting. Let ’em rest. We’ll jump on them now.’” “I loved those kids” “It’s fun to take a kid who’s just so-so,” the Coach said, “and get him to be really good. That’s the best reward of all.” If I might quote a line from Shakespeare here: “They do not love that do not show their love.” Coach Hoisington showed his love, and it was important. In his home room at Central, he said, of the 38 kids, not one had two parents or the same parents from birth. He was a father figure to many of the athletes. Compete Hard but Have Fun Coach Hoisington and Coach Roy

• USATF Hall of Fame and Life Time Contribution Award • Minnesota State High School Track and Cross Country Hall of Fame • Minneapolis Public Schools Hall of Fame • Macalester College Athletics Hall of Fame • Outstanding Citizen Award from Macalester College • State Coach of the Year five times • Minneapolis Coach of the Year seven times • Minneapolis City track and cross country championships 22 times • Seven team state championships and 36 individual state championships in track and field and cross country • The individual champions coached by Bob Hoisington are too numerous to list here. To mention a few: Dan Roach won the state cross country title in 1978 and 1979, Pete Wareham won the state cross country in 1980, Jim Lieb set the state record in the 880 (1:54), Jerry Larson was the state mile champion in 1956.

Griak, at St. Louis Park High School, had some real battles. “We were good buddies,” Bob recalled, but we competed fiercely. “We’d invite each other over for dual meets.” They were checking on each other preliminary to the State Championships. It was intense: “I’d tell the guys to take turns false-starting, and then, suddenly, take off. That sort of thing.” “You’ve got more dirty tricks,” Coach Griak said. “I have to give Roy credit,” Bob said. “He got his kids ready to run. One year, we were favored to win the State. We had just beaten them in a dual meet, but he beat us by winning the final event at the State. I take my hat off to him.” “Respect your elders,” Roy said, later on (he’s 90; Bob is 85).

Officiating and Community Work Coach Hoisington retired from Southwest in 1983. Straightaway, he became a leader among track and field officials in the region. Working for the State High School League as the head rules interpreter, he conducted rules meetings around the State. For many years, he was the head starter and referee at over 50 high school, col-

lege and university meets per season, including national championships. Later, he was a member of the National Track and Field Federation, working for six years on the Rules Committee. Giving back to the community is a big part of Coach Hoisington’s ethos. At the request of Jack Thomen, who had lost his wife to ovarian cancer, Bob started a race, called “Silent No More” to raise money for ovarian cancer research. This led to the formation of the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (MOCA). Molly Cade, a friend of Jack Thomen’s wife, took on the business side of MOCA, setting up an office in her home. Now the offices are on Chicago Avenue South in Minneapolis where they carry on the fight against this disease. Coach Hoisington was recently recognized for his 14 years of services to MOCA.

Family Coach Hoisington has three daughters (Barbara, Karen and Lori) and a son (Bobby), 21 grand children and four great grandchildren. A knee replacement proscribes running, but he walks a lot and uses exercise machines. He stays in touch with many of his athletes.

2013 Year in Review

BY CHAD AUSTIN

It’s that time again. Another year has come and gone, which means it’s time to look back and appreciate all the hard work and great efforts that took place during the last 12 months. This article looks back at some of the top performances, either in Minnesota or by Minnesotans in 2013. These are the ones that stand out most in my mind. Of course, this is a subjective list, and with all the great runners in the state, I’m sure I’ve missed a bunch.

Anytime someone dons a USA jersey, it’s an honor. Minnesota was well represented at the Bupa Great Edinburgh Cross Country International Challenge in Scotland. Team USA Minnesota’s Jonathan Peterson and Twin Cities Track Club’s Joe Moore helped lead the U.S. men to victory. Four Team USA Minnesota women (Ladia Albertson-Junkans, Meghan Peyton, Jamie Cheever and McKenzie Melander), along with Twin Cities Track Club’s Stephanie Price, helped the U.S. women to a third place finish. Dennis Barker was the coach for the U.S. teams. Moore and Price also represented the U.S. at the NACAC Cross Country Championships in Mandeville, Jamaica. Former Hopkins and Gopher standout Beth AlfordSullivan was appointed the President of the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). She was also named the Head Women’s Coach for the U.S. team for the IAAF World Athletics Championships in Moscow this summer. Minnetonka native Will Leer picked up his first two national titles, winning the mile and 3,000 meters at the USATF Indoor Championships. St. Thomas men’s track team continued an unprecedented reign atop the MIAC when they won their 29th consecutive Indoor Track and Field team title. At the same meet, the Tommie women have only won a “mere” 14 straight.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2014

Junior John Simons became the second sub-four minute miler in Minnesota men’s indoor track and field history. His 3:59.32 ranks second only to Ben Blankenship’s 3:57.87. The University of Minnesota Distance Medley Relay team of Travis Burkstrand, Cameron Boy, Harun Abda and Nick Hutton finished third in the NCAA DI Indoor Track Championships. Onamia native Melissa Agnew, running for the University of Mary, won the mile (4:46.94) and anchored the winning Distance Medley Relay team at the NCAA DII Indoor Championships. Then in her final collegiate race at the Outdoor Championships, she won the 1,500 meters in 4:28.02. Melissa finished her college career with three national titles and 12 All-American awards. Winona’s Elliott Heath finished 30th as the U.S. men won the silver medal at the IAAF World Cross Country Championships in Poland. Not to be outdone, his brother, Garrett Heath, won the Mens’ USA Road Mile Championship in 4:02.79 and the men’s 1,500 meters at the Prefontaine Classic in 3:38.54. At the USATF national masters indoor championships, Lance Elliott of Edina brought home two silver medals, taking second in both the 800 meters (2:03.73) and the mile (4:28.06) for the M40 division. Pat Billig, of Roseville, was second in the M50 3,000 meters and third in the mile (4:48.16). Finally, Thom Weddle of Minneapolis took second in the M70 mile in 6:54.97. University of Minnesota’s Laura Docherty broke the second oldest school record when she ran 33:24.93. Docherty broke Eileen Donaghy’s 10,000 meter record of 33:31.96 from 1988.

Goaner Deng, Alex Brend, Travis Burkstrand and Harun Abda combined to give the Minnesota men’s outdoor track and field team its third straight Drake Relays 4x800 title. A day later, Burkstrand and Abda finished one-two in the 800 meters, re-


2013 Year in Review spectively. Abda closed out his college career by setting a school record in the 800 meters of 1:46.38 at the U.S. Championships. Also at the Drake Relays, the University of Minnesota’s women’s Distance Medley Relay team of

Katie Hill, Alena Brooks, Te’Shon Adderley and Laura Docherty set a new school record, while winning in 11:06.47. Many of the elite runners with ties to Minnesota spent the summer tearing up the track and roads, setting numerous PRs along the way. Team USA Minnesota’s Jamie Cheever shaved more than 20 seconds from her best 3,000 meter steeplechase time, lowering her best time to 9:29.13. Former Gopher Hassan Mead set a 3K best of 7:46.18 and a couple of 5K PRs, including 13:11.80. Garrett Heath also PR’d at the 5K with a 13:20.01 and at the mile with his 3:53.15. Team USA Minnesota’s Heather Kampf lowered her 800 meter and 1,500 meter bests to 2:00.04 and 4:08.37, respectively.

MEETING MINUTES • There are not currently other half marathon races in the Twin Cities area around the early September time frame.

Minutes of the Board of Directors Meeting - October 21, 2013

• Half marathons have become increasingly popular, and the change to a half marathon will add this race distance to the MDRA portfolio, which we currently do not offer.

Members Present: Paul Arneberg, Nathan Campeau, Norm Champ, Mike Iserman, Josh Jacobson, Bill Knight, Dave Marek, Mike Nawrocki, Kevin Ross, Melissa Wieczorek

• In changing the race to a half marathon, it loses its unique distance and rich history; but the COL race distance has been changed in the past as well.

Guest Present: Heidi Miler

For members not familiar with the history of the race, please read the article written by Jeff Winter: http://www.cityoflakes25k.com/history.html

Members Absent: Kate Bomsta, Jim Delaplain, Noelle Frost, Kristin Johnson, Mary Johnson, Eve Stein Secretary’s Report: TThe minutes of the September 16 meeting were approved with one change. Mike Nawrocki did indeed attend the September meeting and was moved to the Present column. Treasurer’s Report: : Treasurer Josh Jacobson reported net income v. budget remains favorable. Expenses YTD remain in line with budget and are expected to remain so throughout 2013. Ad revenue continues to be the drag on the budget as while it was favorable for the month of September it continues to be $12,000 behind forecasted revenues. Office Manager’s Report: Membership: New Members Renewals Membership Total

2012 17 70 2,517

2013 18 40 (includes 6 two-year renewals) 2,362 (prior month: 2,369)

Overall membership can increase month to month yet appear to decline due to the timing of when MDRA is paid for online memberships. RunMinnesota: Production on the November issue is ongoing and the issue is expected to hit the street before Thanksgiving. Running Minnesota: The 2014 MDRA Annual Calendar will be available just before Thanksgiving and mailed to members in early December. Ad revenue is up for this year.

COMMITTEE REPORTS Advocacy: Recognizing the need to reconstruct the West River Parkway trails (especially between Franklin and Plymouth avenues), and desiring broad representation from the community in the project, the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) created a community advisory committee to be participate in the planning and execution of the trail maintenance. Nathan Campeau representing MDRA shared with the committee the overwhelming support of MDRA members (2011 Trail Survey results) to replacing paved trails with asphalt vs concrete. Nathan reported at the October meeting that the feedback from the Park Board to the concerns he shared about concrete running surfaces was immediate with the plan to convert 3,600 feet of trail to asphalt. More information on the project can be found at http://minneapolisparksmn.iqm2.com/Citizens/ Detail_LegiFile.aspx?Frame=&MeetingID=1216&MediaPosition=&ID=1808&CssClass= Administration: There are currently several positions available on MDRA’s board of directors. Interested parties are invited to contact Heidi Miler, either for more information or to attend a board meeting to get a feel for the opportunity. Norm Champ will be running for President for 2014, Melissa Wieczorek is running for Vice-President. Running for re-election for the board are Nathan Campeau and Kevin Ross. Randy Fulton has thrown his hat in the ring to run as a new member to the MDRA Board. MDRA is still seeking out a candidate for Secretary. Other current board members will let Heidi know their intentions to run by the end of the week. Programs: The first Polar Bear run will be starting on Saturday, October 26 in St. Paul at the College of St. Thomas. The Polar Bear Group will alternate Saturday runs between St. Thomas and the Lake Calhoun Executive Center. Promotions: The TCM Expo went exceedingly well. Norm Champ reports having the new members and folks wanting to renew lined up two deep across the table filling out the paperwork. Approximately 60 people either joined or renewed at the expo. Race: Norm Champ, race committee chair reports MDRA earned $537.50 in equipment rental fees since the September board meeting. The MDRA Race Director’s appreciation dinner is set for Sunday, November 10 at Buca in Eden Prairie. Please RSVP to Heidi before November 5. New Business: 1. Proposal by Kevin Ross to convert the Jeff Winter City of Lakes 25K into a half marathon using the same lakes course with modifications. Below are pros and cons to consider. • The half marathon distance will likely attract a wider audience of main stream runners, but may discourage the elite runners and longtime MDRA members. • The 25K distance seems to be gaining in popularity, but more for trail races or adventure races.

Heidi included some stats on the declining numbers of the 25K and the trend is not favorable. Finisher totals since 1999 for the COL 25K 2013 – 668, 2012 – 722, 2011 – 622, 2010 – 661, 2009 – 812, 2008 – 984, 2007 – 972, 2006 – 810, 2005 – 724, 2004 – 763, 2003 – 1309, 2002 – 1032, 2001 – 1402, 2000 – 1517, 1999 – 1149 There was lively discussion about the history of the race and the current challenges with the 25K distance. Josh Jacobson made a motion to change the 2014 Jeff Winter City of Lakes 25K into the Jeff Winter City of Lakes Half Marathon, Nathan Campeau seconded the motion. The motion passed unanimously.

COMMITTEE REPORTS Advocacy: MDRA Board member Nathan Campeau, representing MDRA’s members, reported great success working with the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board (MPRB) community advisory committee.

RUNNING INSIGHTS

December CLY-mation BY BRUCE BROTHERS

I had to push myself out the door. It’s an annual rite of passage when winter re-introduces itself to us, and winter came especially hard this year. After running in shorts in late November, we were greeted by snow and freezing temperatures all at once during the first week of December. Suddenly, that feel of wind on your face is no longer welcome. We live in Minnesota, so this is a fact of life. I had already done the negotiations for my first run of “real winter.” This enabled me to skip running the day when snow fell continuously. And again a day later when the temperature dropped like an anvil and the sidewalks glazed over. Certainly a second consecutive day off was wise. A day later, however, the sun was bright and every sidewalk in my neighborhood had been pretty much cleared of snow, exposing intermittent ice and pavement. I had some free time in the afternoon and, despite trying, I could not summon a credible excuse to skip another run. I dug out heavy fleece gloves and all the other gear required to undertake a simple three mile run from home to a loop around Lake Como and back. The footing was much better than my enthusiasm. A biting wind chilled my fingers and my nose. About three-quarters of a mile from home, the negotiations resumed. “Over there,” I thought, “I’ll be about a mile out. That would be a good spot to turn around.” The experience brought to mind a trail ultra I ran several years ago in southern Wisconsin. The mid May conditions had taken a sharp turn over the final few days before the race; the temperature jumped from low 40s to 70 degrees, and the weather was the main topic of conversation at the prerace pasta feed.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2014

I was sharing a meal with a buddy when a man sat down opposite us. He had not dipped his fork into his spaghetti before he started grousing good-naturedly about the weather. The next day’s run would be unbearable, he asserted. “I’m not CLY-mated,” he said. We all laughed. He meant acclimated, of course. This conversation came to mind as I balled up my hands inside my gloves and then alternated swinging them in front of my mouth and nose and breathing into them. It was a good idea. My hands warmed. The wind stopped biting my nose. I ran past the one mile turnaround point without hesitating, and half a block later I dropped my hands to my sides and breathed in cold air. Then I laughed out loud. A little improvising had enabled me to “CLY-mate.” I jogged on with a smile on my face, remembering long-ago conversations and long-ago runs in summer and winter when conditions sometimes felt hot or bitter or unforgiving but, just like that May day in Wisconsin, turned tolerable before morphing into enjoyable. This is why I run. It feeds my soul. About 10 minutes later, I was heading up the north shore of Lake Como, my eyes wide while taking in the ice covered luminescence of a lake reflecting the golden rays of the setting sun. Just then, another runner approached. “Beautiful day,” he said. Encountering a like-minded fellow who also understood what it requires to “CLY-mate” brought the smile back to my face. “Yep,” I said. “It surely is.”
