Dear RunMinnesota Readers, As I quickly approach the end of my term as President of MDRA’s Board of Directors, it seems as though the last three years have passed me by as quickly as the lead runner at the Victory 10K. It has been a great pleasure serving on the Board and working with so many wonderful individuals, each of whom graciously dedicates their time and energy to support the local running community. Over the last three years, the Board has devoted many conversations to the topic of MDRA’s membership. As you may recall, several of my previous President’s letters have drawn attention to the declining membership numbers observed over the past decade. Early in 2011, I challenged the Board to reverse this trend and increase membership to 2,500. Looking back over the last three years at the outcome of our efforts to increase membership, I am reminded of a quote by Dee W. Edington, Ph.D.: “It’s absolutely impossible to get better until you stop getting worse” (The Art of Health Promotion, 2012). Although this statement was made in the context of America’s obesity epidemic, I do see a similar application to the reversal of MDRA’s declining membership. With that in mind, I declare a moral victory. MDRA’s membership peaked at over 3,000 in 2003 and then fell steadily over the following years, ending 2010 at less than 2,250 memberships. Beginning in 2011, membership began to slowly move upward and temporarily rose above our goal of 2,500 in September of 2012. Encouraged by this progress, we set our sights on continued growth toward 2,620 memberships by the end of 2013. Soon thereafter, MDRA’s membership turned again toward an unfortunate downward trend, ending this September at approximately 2,360. More recently, the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Health & Fitness Expo catalyzed an outstanding show of support. Existing members renewed, new members joined and, much like the volatile stock market, membership numbers

surged upward. Although we have not yet sustained our targeted number, the overall trend is positive, and we are not getting worse. MDRA is a member based organization. Membership is the “back-bone” without which MDRA would not exist. As with any nonprofit organization, sustainability is contingent upon maintaining a balanced “double bottom line”: to fulfill the mission of serving distance runners in Minnesota and maintaining the financial integrity of the organization. Membership is an inseparable component of both. I am confident the incumbent and incoming MDRA Board members will continue working to identify and implement creative strategies to promote membership growth. In addition, your ongoing support is essential for the success and vitality of MDRA. Remember to renew your membership in a timely fashion and encourage your fellow runners to consider the many benefits of joining the MDRA community. Thank you for providing me with the opportunity to serve as President of MDRA for the past three years. I look forward to seeing everyone at the Annual Party on January 11, at future MDRA events and out logging those training miles.

FROM YOU Dear RunMinnesota, My name is Peter Kaul. I’m a MDRA member and of course reader of the RunMinnesota magazine. I saw your article about the different Marathon Medals in the March/April 2013 magazine earlier in the year. Prior to this year I had run 14 marathons over the previous two years. At the time of your article, I had already run the Zoom! Yah! Yah! marathon this year and was signed up for several of the other Minnesota marathons. Your article made me think about the possibility of running all the Minnesota marathons...in one year. So far so good. I’ve completed nine of the 13 Minnesota Marathons this year that I know of. In addition to the 10 you listed in your article there are also: • Half-Voyageur/Eugene Curnow Marathon up by Spirit Mountain/ Carlton in July • St. Paul Urban Trail Marathon in August (first annual but sadly no medal at the end, just the shirt) • Bemidji Blue Ox Marathon on 10/12 (first annual) There was a Ladies-only one scheduled for early August, but fortunately/unfortunately it was cancelled (I thought about running it “dressed up” but glad I didn’t have to make that decision). I realize there are plenty of 100 mile, 50 mile 50K races I didn’t run, so I’m not trying to sound like the greatest runner in Minnesota or anything, Just having fun with the Medal chase. I find people are very surprised that there are that many marathons in Minnesota. I hope I haven’t missed any. There are still four to go (Walker, TCM, Bemidji and Mankato), but now that I’m past the Moose Mountain Marathon this past weekend (third marathon in three weeks, also ran the “No Frills” marathon in Minocqua, Wisconsin, the week before), I’m a little more confident that I will make it throught them all. Haven’t won any yet, but it’s been a fun motivation. There’s been a few races where I thought about quitting (especially those tough, tough trail marathons), but stick it out to the end in hopes of completing all 13 (actually will run 15 to 16 this year total). Thanks for story and inspiration. I’ll let you know how it’s going down the stretch.

Looking for Volunteer Race Directors

MDRA Advocates for Better Minneapolis Trails

Most of MDRA races are fairly low key and grass roots types of events that can be put on by a small number of dedicated volunteers. This year we are on the lookout for some new faces to help out with these events. If you have any interest in looking to help out or learn more about race directing, please contact Heidi at the MDRA office to learn more: runminnesota@ gmail.com or 952-927-0983.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board is embarking on a plan to rebuild deteriorating bicycle and running trails along the Mississippi West River Road from the Plymouth Avenue Bridge to the Franklin Avenue Bridge. The Park Board’s original plan was to replace portions of the existing deteriorating concrete running paths with fresh concrete. Responding to feedback received from over 100 MDRA members and runners in a previous trail survey, MDRA’s Advocacy Committee weighed in on the plan, advocating on behalf of MDRA members and the running community, who overwhelmingly prefer asphalt to concrete.

2014 MDRA Grand Prix News The 2014 MDRA Grand Prix will have the same schedule as 2013. Please see the registration form in this issue for exact race dates. The cost is still only $5.00. A handful of the races give Grand Prix registrants a discount, so it is a no brainer to register. All registered Grand Prix runners who complete 10 of the 13 Grand Prix races will be awarded a special prize at the 2015 MDRA Annual Party.

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

The Park Board immediately responded to MDRA’s request and adjusted their trail reconstruction plan to replace over 3,600 feet of concrete trails with asphalt. The new asphalt running trails will be located primarily between the Washington Avenue and Franklin Avenue Bridges. Construction of the improved paths will occur in 2014. Do you have concerns about local trails about which you would like MDRA to advocate? Please contact your Advocacy Committee chairperson, Nathan Campeau, at campeau@gmail.com.

Race Director Clinic The MDRA Race Director clinic is set for Saturday, January 11, from 8:00 a.m. to noon. It is the same day as the MDRA Annual Party, only earlier, so you can make both events. The MDRA Race Director’s clinic is a great opportunity for both veterans and first time directors to get together to network and learn from each other and experts in the field. This year’s clinic will focus on race basics, marketing, options for timing your event and the always popular race director’s round table. The cost is $40.00 per attendee. Visit www.runmdra.org for more information.

2013 Grand Prix Results What a finish for the 2013 MDRA Grand Prix! Battling back and forth for the overall male lead during much of the year were Ben Merchant and Tom Gatyas. Merchant ended up taking the lead at the final race with his overall Grand Prix win at Rocky’s Run when he pocketed 1,000 points, he finished ahead of Gatyas by a mere 75 points. Merchant finished with 9878, Gatyas 9803 and 3rd place Rick Larson with 9057. The women’s field was also close and entertaining until the final race. Ann Wasson came from behind in the standings to beat Carrie Hinners at the final race (Hinners did not run the Rocky’s Run) and won by a slim margin of 90 points. Past winner of the Grand Prix Andriette Wickstrom came in third in the overall women’s standings. It was exciting to see runners in the 50+ age categories giving the younger ones some very competitive races for the overall winner. Below are the winners in each age category. You can find complete race results and MDRA Grand Prix scoring rules at www.runmdra.org Dale Heinen, John Naslund, Ann Wasson, Andriette Wickstrom, Jim Graupner, Gloria Jansen (new age group) and Dorothy Marden all defended their titles from 2012.

2014 MDRA

BOARD ELECTIONS All of the candidates were asked to respond to the following questions: 1. Please give a brief description of your running background. 2. Qualifications: What special talents and experiences can you contribute to the MDRA Board? 3. Goals and Plans: What committees would you like to be involved with should you win election/or have been a part of during your term on the board. Are there any specific changes or new opportunities you would like to spearhead during your tenure.

PRESIDENT POSITION (one candidate running for one open position) Norm Champ 1. Ran since HS CC and Track, more off than on until the Marathon bug bit in’ 86. Post Grandma’s the joys of actively running and competing were a major part of who I was for 20 years. I found a great camaraderie with runners, in addition to the great physical and mental cleansing that exertion brings. If you’re reading this you know what I’m talking about. Although running can be a huge part of your life for decades, all runners need to realize at some level there is life after running. Seeing others run down the parkway, or going to WATCH a race, gradually becomes less and less painful and more and more fun. 2. I am committed to giving back to the sport that provided me so much as an active athlete. I am currently the MDRA Vice President and Chair of the Race Committee and would like to continue in those capacities, as well as volunteering for most of the MDRA races. 3. I’d really like to increase the volunteer base as well as the overall MDRA membership. It’s striking that we have so few volunteers out of our member organizational pool. I think we had six volunteers administering most MDRA Races. What’s up with that? The MDRA races are really fun events – and everyone is a member – so we’re all supporting each other. What a great organization!

VICE PRESIDENT POSITION (one candidate running for one open position) Melissa Wieczorek 1. I started running with MDRA in the fall of 2005 while training for my first marathon. I then went on to do ten marathons with them, usually two a year, one in the spring and another in the fall until 2010. I was a team leader and then a coach for a couple of those sessions. After a four year

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

Voting is available online at www.runmdra.org or mail in to the MDRA office, MDRA, 5701 Normandale Road, Edina, MN 55424. Please vote for one candidate in each of the three officer elections: President, Vice-President and Treasurer. Please vote for 6 candidates running for the open board director positions. There will be one person elected to each of the officer openings and six open board directors elected. All current MDRA members are eligible to vote. Votes are due via online voting or the paper ballot to the MDRA office by midnight January 9, 2014.

break, I am presently training for the Paris Marathon on April 6th 2014 and am signed up for Grandmas Marathon on June 21st 2014 as well. 2. I have been on the board for several years now serving as the MDRA representative at the USATF board meetings. Having the experience of being on the board for several years helps me know what is important to MDRA when it comes to issues that could affect us. I know how MDRA would want me to vote in certain situations and when to fight for our best interest. 3. I would like to continue to spread the MDRA mission among the running community. I would like to grow our membership. I want to get the word out to the running community about what MDRA does and how it strives to give members a great value for their membership.

SECRETARY POSITION (one candidate running for one open position) Mary Johnson 1. I've been running all my adult years. 5K and 10K were my favorite races. When I was approaching 50, my son persuaded me to tackle the longer distance. I began training for and running half marathons and marathons. I just recently completed the Chicago Marathon with the help of the MDRA Fall Training class and the best group of training buddies anyone could ask for! 2. My qualifications for the MDRA board are simply my love of running and my belief in this organization. 3. For the past three years on the board I have been involved in promotions. That is where I would like to continue. MDRA is an organization that welcomes all ages and all paces. Anyone who wants to run a 5K to a marathon can train with MDRA and reach the finish line. I want to invite others to join MDRA and have a similar experience.


2014 MDRA BOARD ELECTIONS BOARD MEMBER ELECTIONS (six candidates running for six open positions) Paul Arneberg 1. I ran a single season each of track & cross country in high school, and although my involvement in theatre preempted a longer prep running career, I learned many necessary tools to be an on-again, off-again runner through my 20's. My next big step was taking the MDRA Marathon Training Class in 1996, which really opened my eyes to the possibility of virtually anyone running a marathon, and running it for time, not just to finish. I still employ many training techniques from that one class 17 years ago, and I've now run seven marathons with plans for one or two more in 2014. Since 2011, I've deliberately pulled back from all racing in order to test my will to continue running with no immediate goals, and I've succeeded: I average four days/25 miles a week year-round, and I continue to advise and inspire many friends and family members to take up and/or advance their own running as a lifestyle. I hope to run the Marine Corps Marathon in the next couple of years with two Air Force nephews and I'm encouraging my 53-year-old brother to keep increasing his running, as he recently dropped about 40 pounds through running, cross-training, and portion control. 2. I love writing and I'd like to contribute for RunMinnesota. Whereas I'm in charge of my own youth company, I'm usually the quiet one in the board meetings, but running is one of my main "extra curricular" passions so I'm glad to continue contributing my time and opinions in any way I can. 3. I've served on the Race Committee for the past four years, and Publications could be another/different area of service. I love Programs, but as I hardly ever run in the mornings (I love mid-day), it would be difficult to be a Class Coach with weekly morning runs! (I like group classroom time, but I'm usually a lone runner.) I faithfully attend the monthly board meetings and maintain a passion for life-long running.

3. I am very interested in continuing to be involved with the running community both on and off the course. Short term, I would love to get the message out that running is accessible to absolutely everyone who is able. And that MDRA makes it possible for people of all paces to not only achieve but enjoy as well, their race/run goals. Few of us are going to win but we're definitely going to have fun crossing the finish line. Long term, I'd like to get involved in race directing/management. It's such a vibrant environment from all perspectives. Most importantly, seeing others succeed on their individual running journeys.

Nathan Campeau 1. I began running my freshman year of college to keep off the beer weight and explore the monuments around DC. 3 years later I ran my first marathon and promised I'd never do another one. One week later I signed up for my second marathon and haven't looked back! After 7 years of running actively with the DC running community, I moved to Minnesota and within a week had hooked up with MDRA on an Around the Town Run (summer fun runs). In recent years I have transitioned to more of a trail runner (and occasional ultra trail runner). Running with MDRA helped me take 48 minutes off my marathon time, but much more importantly, has provided me the opportunity to meet many wonderful people and make a lot of fantastic friendships! I am currently wrapping up my 2nd 2-year term on the MDRA Board. 2. I coached the MDRA fall class in 2008 and the spring classes in 2011, 2012 and 2013. I am passionate about running, helping others achieve their running goals, and serving as a voice in helping to promote local running resources. I have run marathons from 2:50 to over 4 hours, so I bring an understanding of the perspectives of a wide range of running abilities to the board. 3. I would like to help MDRA engage more with the rest of the running community and improve the membership experience. As Chair of the Advocacy Committee, I have helped MDRA provide stakeholder input on trail improvements, and I would like to expand MDRA's role in advocating for better trails.

Kristen Bruner 1. A relatively new runner, my running 'career' started in 2005 after watching the Twin Cities Marathon. I was literally awed and moved to emotion watching people I did not know come across the finish line. There were people of all ages, sizes and races crossing the line in varying degrees of running experience and ability. I realized then and there that if you want something bad enough you can make it happen. I was hooked and I set a goal to run my first 5k while on vacation in Florida the following March. The 5k came and I was extremely nervous. After finishing the race I felt like I could do absolutely anything. I'm all in now! Kept up my running and did several more 5k's. Then joined the Minneapolis Rowing Club where I met an MDRA member who said that if I was interested in running a marathon I should definitely train with MDRA...thank you Noelle Hurtig! My life has changed forever. In 2010 I ran my first Twin Cities marathon. When I finished I was elated but wasn't really sure I wanted to do that again. In 2011 I knew I wanted to train with MDRA but had not committed to another race. Should I run the TC 10 mile or the TC Marathon? It was a conversation with one of my coaches that decided it for me. As Marty Humphrey so astutely pointed out...the marathon is a much better investment mile/dollar. So I registered for TCM. After that my running journey took on a life of its own as I ran marathons in Baton Rouge, China, Chicago, Lake Wobegon and Duluth. 2. My experience with MDRA marathon training programs in conjunction with my experience with committees and boards, both personally and professionally, make me a great candidate for the MDRA Board. I feel my project management, communication and organizations skills would augment the mission of MDRA.

Randy Fulton 1. I remember exactly when I started running. I was 23 years old and a person I worked with asked me to run in the 1979 City of Lakes Marathon with him. This was before anyone was really “running�. I was student teaching in Grand Rapids that fall, and he and I would get up in the dark every morning to train. Between that 1979 marathon and 1986 (the year my first son was born), I spent most Saturday mornings at some sort of running event, either participating or helping the race director in whatever way I could. I also worked as a Fitness Director at the YMCA those early years and spent quite a bit of time with runners, either in a training aspect, or running along with them. When my son Brian was born, those spontaneous before and after-work runs just didn’t happen anymore. I was never been into running for the competitive nature; I was running more for the health and social nature of the sport. Currently, I am a much better walker than I am a runner, and my walking partner is my dog, Rosie. 2. I think one of the greatest talents that I could bring to the MDRA Board is an understanding of the average runner and what attracts them to the sport of running. I have been in the race organization field for 20 years and I currently organize over 30 running and multisport events each year. Many of my event participants are middle-of-the-pack athletes who are there not only for the fitness aspect, but also for the social and friendship value of the sport. I believe these are the same people who make up the majority of the Minnesota Distance Running Association. will bring proven organizational, business and personal skills, as well as unique talents and experience that revolve around successful event planning and execution.

2014 MDRA

BOARD ELECTION BALLOT

2014 MDRA BOARD ELECTIONS 3. I believe I have been in the running world long enough to have seen the history of the sport, experience its ups and downs, and see people come and go. I feel I could contribute positivity and energy to many of the MDRA events that are held annually. I also feel I could make a contribution to the future planning of the organization and where the sport of running is headed based on my 20+ successful years in the industry.

Kevin Ross

PRESIDENT POSITION (select 0ne) Norm Champ

VICE PRESIDENT POSITION (select one) Melissa Wieczorek

SECRETARY POSITION (select one)

2. I have participated in the MDRA marathon training class for several years and coached the spring class the past two years. I am also a Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) certified coach. As a board member for the past two years, I understand the mission of the MDRA and the aspirations of its members. As a Project Manager working in the Construction Management field, I understand what it takes to work with an organization to meet its goals. 3. I am certainly interested in continuing my involvement with the training programs. Running organizations in our community have popped up everywhere and have grown into big business. I am interested in building on the success of the MDRA and helping to ensure that it remains viable for the next generation of runners.

1. I began running in the mid-1990s primarily because I spent a great deal of time at the chain of lakes… and all the beautiful people were running. Since then I have completed over 100 road races including ten marathons, where I have finished consistently in the top 25% overall.

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

1. I was a "late blooming" runner…not running my first marathon until graduate school (Atlanta Marathon). I honestly thought it would be one and done but I caught the bug and here I am, 9 years and 19 marathons later. I've also completed 5 Ironmans. My marathon PR is 3:17 (TC marathon) which means I won't be challenging the Kenyans anytime soon. I simply enjoy running...all different distances on all types of terrains. As long as I'm breathing the fresh air, anything is fair game! 2. I'm the founder of Run M5, the running system that helps runners of all abilities train and race smarter, faster and injury-free through the principles of metabolics, movements, muscles, mentality and mobility. Certifications include Strength & Conditioning Specialist, Performance Enhancement Specialist, Professional Triathlon Coach, Medical Exercise Specialist, Heart Rate Training Specialist and Personal Fitness Trainer. I also have a Master's degree in Sport Psychology and serve of the Executive Certification Board for the National Exercise and Sport Trainers Association. Beyond my geekiness, I've been coaching runners for the past 8 years and I think my strength lies in my ability to communicate with runners on how to improve, while having fun at the same time. 3. In my opinion, all runners seek 3 things - to be a part of something (a community or support network), to challenge themselves and see improvement, and to have fun. I can contribute as a resource to help runners achieve these things. I think MDRA can improve through strategic partnerships that will help grow running awareness and bring new runners, of all abilities, into the sport. I believe we're just scratching the surface in the creation of a Minnesota running movement. I would like to see a grass roots campaign extending out to different geographical areas of MN that would create, and promote, local running communities. I would also like to make a greater push for the safety of the sport. Current stats show that 70 percent of all runners will get injured in a given year. A continued strong presence in running clinics and training programs would be a start. I would also like to see a greater leverage of technology, where runmdra.org could act as a resource of information for runners looking for training, nutrition and recovery tips to improve their chances of staying healthy.

HONORING GREATNESS

A Tribute to Coach Roy Griak September event honors coach’s 50 years of service BY PAT O’REGAN

T

he running community came together September 26, some from distant locales, at TCF Bank Stadium on the University campus to honor Coach Roy Griak for his 50 years of service to the University and indeed to a legion of track and field athletes, fans and supporters of the sport throughout the area. A line up of coaching, administration and running luminaries delivered accolades to the great Coach. The fete was a measure of the man and his accomplishments. It’s all about love. No one could reach the pinnacle of his profession, as Coach Griak has, without a love of the sport, a loving concern for the athletes, both on the track and off, and a loving dedication to the University, whose mission he serves. How else but with a driving love for one’s work could a person stand up before 33 years of relentless effort? “It wasn’t a job,” the Coach said. On the busy weekends, preparing the workouts for the following week, he was having fun. He loved it all. And the multitude of lives he lifted along the way, and continues to do, profited for it. The tributes to Coach Griak began with Norwood Teague, the athletic director at the University. He loves to be around the Coach,

he said, just shooting the breeze, enjoying his company and learning something about World War II from the Coach’s combat experiences. The athletic director was followed by Coach Griak’s long-time friend and coaching assistant Lefty Wright. Their 55 year relationship is going strong. After Lefty, Phil Lundin, who followed Coach Griak as head track and field and cross country coach at the University, spoke of the 23 years they shared an office at the University of Minnesota. Joel Maturi, the former athletic director, followed. “Roy Griak cared about people,” he said, adding, “He had your back when you needed it.” And, “He raised millions, millions for Gopher Athletics.” It was soon clear that beyond a high regard for Coach Griak’s abilities as a coach, they all liked the man. Dedication and coaching genius aside, they were saying, this is a good human being, a man who genuinely cares about others. Steve Plasencia, the current track and field and cross country coach at the University of Minnesota, echoed the sentiments of the others. Since Coach Griak still keeps a regular schedule at the University, Coach Plasencia said he still learns about coaching from him. Some years ago, I called Coach Griak out of the blue to ask for an interview for a profile to be run in RunMinnesota magazine. He was

“Roy Griak cared about people. He had your back when you needed it, and he raised millions, millions for Gopher Athletics.” — Joel Maturi, former athletic director readily agreeable to take the time. When I came for the interview, I waited a few minutes while he met with one of his athletes, whom he had not seen in 25 years. “He’s got a pot belly,” the Coach said, disapprovingly, as the athlete went off down the hall. Once a coach, always a coach. “I’m slowed,” he said, “I’ve got to have a hip replaced. Come on in. What was the name of that magazine?” “RunMinnesota. You know, the MDRA.” “Sit down.” He answered questions for over two hours. This is a man who loves what he does, I thought, unsettled by meeting someone I had known of for 40 years. He was perfectly at ease and down to earth. One after another, the tributes continued. Beyond a love for the man and admiration for his talent and dedication, the athletes evinced a more subtle appreciation for the man. Coach Griak has an intuitive grasp for athletic performance and what an athlete can do. Lloyd Ness, the fine University distance runner, spoke of taking

his frustration over his lackluster performances to the Coach. “Lloyd,” Griak said, “You’re too damn fat.” “I was six pounds overweight,” Lloyd recalled. The Coach would understand the physics of carrying six pounds for a mile. One can imagine him being mindful of the particulars for improvement of each athlete he coached. He would get the most from them. It was a huge talent which led to a long list of accomplishments: • 3 Big Ten Championships • 47 All Americans • 3 National Championships • 60 Conference titles • Manager of three Olympic teams • Namesake of the largest cross country meet in this part of the country: The Roy Griak Invitational But coaching for Coach Griak was about more than winning; it was about the personal growth of his young charges and building relationships with them that would last


a lifetime. The size of the turnout at the celebration and the long line up of people waiting to talk to him and have a photo taken with him was testament to his success. Rich Simonsen said of the Coach, “He taught us that life is in the friends we have. And to make the world a little better place because you’ve been in it… He pushed us to our limits… Thank you, Coach, from the bottom of our hearts.” Coach Bob Hoisington spoke of his long relationship with Coach Griak. Gene Daly, the outstanding University distance runner, told of the day he learned that his father died. Coach Griak drove with him to his home town of St. Cloud and stayed with the family for three hours, offering his comfort and condolences. Garry Bjorklund, one of the best Minnesota distance runners of all time, became emotional when talking about his relationship with Coach Griak. The Coach was a surrogate father to many athletes. As I recall, when I interviewed Garry in Colorado two years ago, he also became emotional then when talking about the Coach. Then, too, he recalled the Coach, knowing, of course, his stellar high school running reputation, saying to him when he showed up on campus as a freshman, “I hope you can make the team.” Straightaway, his mileage increased. “He treated us all the same,” Garry said, “like the most important person in the world.” He listed some life lessons from the Coach: • Always be a gentleman • Be thankful for what you have • Remember where you came from • Never ride the escalator if you can take the stairs • Be there for one another • Know when to help others and when to leave them alone • Always love the University of Minnesota Like a refrain, the speakers said of Coach Griak, in the highest

Adam Steele, Carter Holmes and Carrie Tollefson

USATF Minnesota Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony The ceremonial banquet for induction into the USATF Minnesota Track and Field Hall of Fame was held September 1. The ceremony was organized and hosted by Tim Zbikowski. The inductees were: Adam Steele, Carrie Tollefson, Heather Van Norman, Scott Christensen and Carter Holmes. It was a lively and festive affair, with great food, engaging presentations and lots of stories of running exploits. Just a few of the highlights of the careers of the inductees will be given here.

ELITE ATHLETES Adam Steele Adam was a five time All American 400 meter runner at the University of Minnesota. In 2003, he won the NCAA outdoors 400 meter championship in 44.57 seconds, the fourth fastest time by an American that year. Also in 2003, Adam ran on the 4 x 400 meter University team that was second at the NCAA outdoor championship, setting a school record of 3:02.33. He was a Big Ten champion in the 600 meter indoors and has Big Ten titles in the 4 x 400 meter and distance medley relays. Adam and his teammate, Mitch Potter, earned gold medals in the 2003 World Championship by running in the opening rounds of the 4 x 400 meter relay. He also won the gold medal at the 2003 Pan Am Games. As a senior in high school, Adam won both the 400 meters and 800 meters in the State Championship. Adam is a policeman in Springfield, Oregon. He won two bronze medals at the 2011 World Police and Fire Games.

Carrie Tollefson From Dawson, Minnesota, Carrie, beginning in eighth grade, won five state cross country championships. She also won eight state championships in track and field. As a collegiate at Villanova, Carrie was seventh in the NCAA cross country championship in 1995, fifth in 1996 and the champion in 1997. In 1999, she won the NCAA championship in the 3,000 meters, both indoors and outdoors. She added the 5,000 meter championship in the 1999 outdoors. At the U.S. Olympic Trials in 2004, she was victorious in the 1500 meters and made the semifinals in the Games of Athens. That year, she was ranked number one nationally in the 1500 meters by Track and Field News. In another banner year, 2006, Carrie won both the 4,000 meter race at the U.S. cross country championship and the 3,000 meters at the U.S. indoor national championships. RunMinnesota magazine selected her as the all-time best woman runner from the state. Carrie currently conducts a running camp in the summer and hosts an online program, nicely named “See Tolle Run,” which is in its third season. It might be added, she also chases two kids.

ON THE RUN

Winter Running Tips Maintain your training during the dark and cold months BY CHAD AUSTIN

W

hen people ask me for advice on how to become a faster runner, the easy answer is usually, “Start by running all year around.” Of course, due to our winters, most people don’t want to hear that. But winter running isn’t as brutal as most people make it out to be. If you struggle with getting out the door once winter arrives, this article is for you. Below are some of the tips to help get you out the door when the days get shorter and the temperature gets colder.

Weather When it comes to winter weather, I always tell people you have to gradually acclimate to the conditions. You don’t want to run a fall marathon when it’s 50 degrees and then take three months off before setting that New Year’s resolution to start running again in the dead of winter. Of course it will feel cold out. However, if you keep training as the temperatures continue to drop, you won’t notice the change as much. If you do it this way, you’ll

15

have a better idea how to dress appropriately for the conditions. Perhaps my biggest piece of advice is DO NOT listen to the weathermen. Their job is to make the weather newsworthy to help increase their rating. This is why Dan Barreiro, from KFAN radio, refers to them as “weather terrorists.” They can take a perfectly normal Minnesota winter and talk about it in such a way that you’ll never want to run outside again between November and April. It’s okay to watch the weather forecast, but just be sure to turn down the volume. Instead, look at the graphics and use your own judgment. I’ve been scared out of running more than once because of what the weatherman said, only to kick myself later because the conditions weren’t as awful as he made it sound. If at all possible, run into the wind during the first part of your run. The last thing you want is get all sweaty early in a run and then turn into an icy headwind. Cold wind and sweaty clothes are not a good combination. And although Min-

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

nesotans love their lakes, you may want to avoid them on windy winter days, because there aren’t any trees or buildings to break the wind.

Clothing As the saying goes, “There’s no bad weather, just bad clothing.” If you truly want to enjoy winter running, you’ll have to invest in some winter running apparel. Sure, if you’re “old school” you can run in long johns and a cotton sweat suit, but I said “enjoy” winter running. I understand it can be tough to swallow the prices of winter running apparel, but think of it as an investment, because it’ll last for many years. Don’t forget, you can use your MDRA discount at most local specialty running shops and get 20 percent off your purchase. We’ve probably already heard the basics when it comes to dressing in the winter: dress in layers, wear technical clothing, avoid cotton, don’t overdress, etc. So, I won’t go through those in detail. Instead, I’ll share my “must haves” for winter running apparel. Of all the body parts that I must keep warm in order to not be mis-

erable, my hands are a must. When it comes to my hands, I’m a mitten guy. I like to be able to rub my fingers and thumbs together to help warm them. Plus, I like the flexibility of being able to wear two pair at a time. Just make sure your outer pair is a size larger than normal. I also like to carry hand warmers, those chemical pouches that you can find at hardware stores and gas stations. Even if I don’t need them, you never know when a running partner might. I always keep a pair in my pocket, just in case. While my wife thinks I have the coldest feet in the world, I’ve never had a problem with them getting cold while running. If this is an issue for you, you can buy chemical toe warmers, similar to the ones for your hands. They have an adhesive strip on them and you can stick them right on top of your socks. There’s a good chance that you won’t need it very often, but a facemask is another must have. I prefer to have one that has “options.” Sometimes I like to cover


my nose, sometimes just my mouth, and sometimes I like it just below my chin. Often I’ll cycle through these options on the same run. Not all facemasks are created equal, so you may have to shop around if you want the same options. Another option for protecting your face is to cover it with petroleum jelly. It works, but it can be messy. So far, I’ve mainly talked about keeping your extremities warm, because if you can do that you’ve won the battle. However, you’ll still want to invest in running specific pants, long sleeves and jackets. Since there are so many options on the market, my best advice is to go to a local running specialty store, talk to the sales staff and try on gear from a bunch of different brands. With most of the clothing mentioned above, you’ll want at least one of each. However, keep in mind, what feels good at 30 degrees might not be warm enough at 10 degrees. So over time you may find yourself with a closet full of running jackets and a drawer full of hats and mitts, each appropriate for different conditions. Other than warmth, another key consideration to winter clothing is safety. Shoe and clothing manufacturers have done a great job in adding reflective material to their products. Yet, if you’re running in the dark, it never hurts to wear a reflective vest. Not only can cars see you better, but so can other pedestrians. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been startled by other runners that I couldn’t see in the dark. One important thing to keep in mind is thst reflective clothing only works if a light is shining on it. If you approach a car from the side, like at an intersection, there’s a good chance they still won’t see you. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to proceed with caution.

cold. So you’re just not going to be able to run at the same pace, with the same effort, that you can in shorts and a t-shirt when the birds are chirping. Even though I run slower in the winter, I calculate my mileage based on my perceived effort. That means that if I’m running 9:00 pace in the winter, but it feels like 8:00 pace, I still use 8:00 pace to calculate my miles. Otherwise, if I try to run a certain amount of miles per week, while running at a slower pace, it could mean increasing my training load when my body isn’t ready for it.

General tips Carry identification with you. This goes for anytime of year, but especially in the winter when it’s dark, icy and there are fewer people out and about. RoadID (roadid.com) has a wide variety of products from bracelets to tags that you can lace to your shoes. Heck, even an old driver’s license or student ID is better than nothing. I haven’t tried this yet, but my buddy, Evan Roberts, recommends carrying an extra hat during long runs. Once you’re halfway through your run, switch hats and you’ll be a lot more comfortable the rest of the way. Once the cold weather arrives, porta potties disappear faster than snowbirds heading south. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to carry toilet paper with you. Just put some in a plastic sandwich bag and stuff it in a pocket. Sure, my daughters may think this is gross, but it’s saved me on more than one occasion. I can’t guarantee that these tips will help make winter your new favorite season, but hopefully it’ll be more tolerable, at least in terms of running.

BODY TALK Shoes

Runner, Heal Thyself ANN NOSER Astute RunMinnesota readers may recall my “Running Revisited” article last fall: how I prided myself for joining Team in Training in memory of my Dad, lacing up my brand new shoes and getting to work raising money for cancer research. Little did I know that soon after, my legs would fall apart. Again. One bright and shiny morning, I headed out for a run. Thirty minutes later, I’d stop short due to intense hip pain. When it didn’t resolve with rest, I signed up for physical therapy. Soon, I discovered that not only did I possess the tightest hip flexors in town, but my pelvis had tilted, and I’d been running in the wrong type of shoes for 20 years.

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

Don’t worry. This isn’t an advertisement for the latest shoe fad. Let me explain. I can still recall that humiliating Freshman day when I joined high school yearbook. Some kind Sophomore shuffled my miniature, 85 pound, five foot body around the room for introductions. An Amazonian Junior peered down from her towering height and said, “Hey. Aren’t you that kid who keeps falling down in the halls all the time?” I flushed and squeaked, “Yes. Yes, that’s me.” Soon after, the distance running coach snagged me for her short staffed cross country team based on my high qualifications of: (1) not being in volleyball and (2) lounging in the hallway when she walked past. She sent me to pick out running shoes. At the store, the salesman held up a sturdy pair. “You want stability shoes?” he asked. I’d already fallen down twice that day, so I replied, “Yes. Yes, I do.” Stability meant “for clumsy people,” right? The moral of this story is to get your gait analyzed before purchasing shoes. Granted, this was harder to come by 20 years ago, but in the last year I’ve had my gait analyzed twice. Once, by a shoe store (which some may question) and the second time by my physical therapist. Both agreed that I needed neutral running shoes, not stability. In fact, the stability shoes made my chronic IT band problems even worse. Let me assure you that ignorance is not bliss.

Physical Therapy (PT) Which brings me to the many positive changes I’ve noted in physical therapy. If you run in Rochester, Minnesota, like I do, chances are you’ve heard that ActivePT is “physical therapy for runners.” I was so impressed with Kim Gordon, a physical therapist at Active


PT, that besides recommending her to anyone who will listen, I also interviewed her for this article. Unlike the scores of physical therapists and doctors I saw 15 to 20 years ago, Kim Gordon didn’t just tell me to just stop running. It probably helps that she’s a runner too. Besides confirming which shoes I should wear, Kim set clear cut goals of getting me back out on the streets as soon as possible. She didn’t tell me to stop running for six months or forever, which was pretty much standard repertoire back in the day. Kim dealt with the acute injury first, but also addressed all the other problems I’ve had which led to the current concern. She gave me treatment options, rather than a few paper handouts of stretches and a push out the door. Physical therapists often see runners as “repeat offenders,” requiring treatment for chronic, recurrent or repeat injuries. So what are we doing wrong? Kim Gordon says that it’s imperative to be running in the proper shoe. Runners need to consult a shoe store with good expertise or a physical therapy clinic specializing in treating runners to evaluate your stance, gait and foot structure to determine the right shoe type. Running in the wrong shoes can cause problems. So can using the same shoes too long. Kim’s rule is that “as soon as you feel a little tweak, it’s time to replace your shoes.” Don’t wait too long, or you may regret it. Runners are also notorious for not stretching. As Kim says, “We just want to run. We don’t want to worry about other stuff.” Stretching and use of a foam roller becomes even more important as we age. Sad to say, I was guilty of all of the above: the wrong shoes, weak glutes, not stretching and, let’s be honest here, aging. The final goal of my physical therapy was the proper transition to real life. To avoid re-aggravating an old injury or getting new ones, my muscles needed to be strengthened and lengthened. This is where Pilates and Yoga came in.

Yoga and Pilates If you’re the type of runner who scoffs at the idea of Yoga, it’s time you stopped rolling your eyes and opened them instead. Famous professional athletes from Shaquille O’Neal to Joan Nesbit Mabe tout the benefits of practicing Yoga, especially as athletes age. Even the Runner’s World website boasts an impressive array of Yoga-based videos by Sage Rountree, who is an endurance sports coach, internationally recognized Yoga authority and author of Athlete’s Guide to Yoga. My personal experience has been very positive. After yet another running induced body breakdown, my PT suggested Pilates and Yoga as a “bridge” between PT and the “real world.” I clearly remember my first Pilates/Yoga (aka “PiYo”) class. Rule One of PiYo, which I only broke once, for reasons which should soon be clear: don’t eat breakfast beforehand. Ten minutes into active stretches (I almost hit someone with my flinging arm), exercises to develop sideto-side balance (I almost fell over) and quick transitions from downward dog into push-ups, I thought I was going to die. When we transitioned into a fierce round of crunches, I feared the worst, that I was going to puke. Thirty minutes later, as we moved into cool-down, I’d found a new calling. This is awesome. It’s almost as good as running. But, I will never eat breakfast before class again. Ever. If you’re a typical runner, you might feel prejudiced against Yoga because it’s “not enough of a workout.” Oh, how wrong you are. You need to have your butt kicked by a few PiYo or Strength-Building Yoga classes to teach you some respect. First you’ll need to practice some beginner’s Yoga classes to learn the poses. Then you can move on. My most excellent Pilates instructor and 200 hour certified Yoga teacher, Michelle Jamieson, is an experienced runner who used to turn up her nose at Yoga. “I didn’t think it was worth it, because I did not sweat, and I did not see the

When To Seek Physical Therapy When I asked Kim Gordon, P.T. for guidelines that runners could use to determine when to seek physical therapy. She explained the theory of “red light-green light.”

Green Light Keep Running • Any pain goes away during the run • Soreness after a run goes away within 24 to 48 hours

Yellow Light Consult a PT • If pain comes on during a run or worsens • If soreness after a run lasts longer than 48 hours

Red Light You Should’ve Seen Your PT Ages Ago. • If pain during running is so intense it makes you stop running • To be honest, this is probably when most of us finally consult a PT, even though we should’ve done it long before things get this bad

Common Running Injuries a PT Treats Foot Pain Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis, often caused by an abrupt transition to the newer, popular style of running shoes with dropped heel heights

IT Band Issues This indicates either a foot issue (such as over-pronation which requires a more stable shoe) or weakness in the glute muscles

Generalized Knee Pain Often caused by ramping up mileage without doing proper stretching

New runners, please listen to your bodies. Be careful. Wear the proper shoes, and don’t wait too long to replace them. Address injury when it’s fresh to avoid chronic injuries. Employ cross training and body strengthening exercises. point of lying still on a mat. Once I took the training and embraced Yoga, it completely changed my running. It opened my hip flexors and my glutes and hamstrings.” What distance runner doesn’t need help with their hip flexors, glutes and hammies? What athlete wouldn’t like to spend less time injured? Michelle continues, “I firmly believe that if runners included a Yoga or Pilates practice into their running training they would experience far fewer injuries. Runners often settle into a routine and think

19

that to improve their running, they just need to run. While it is true that running does improve running, doing the same repetitive movement day after day, year after year, sinks that routine into a rut. Without opposing movements, the body will be unbalanced, meaning tight muscles will get tighter, and weak muscles will get weaker. Yoga counteracts running’s negative effects on the body to reduce the chance of injury.” Another benefit of Yoga and Pilates is the mental aspect. “I find the mindfulness aspect of Yoga ex-

tremely beneficial not only for my running, but also throughout my life.” Yoga practice encourages the athlete to enhance their ability to calm their own mind, focus and be present in the moment. Most runners recognize that control over one’s own mind is just as important as athletic prowess in endurance sports. Practicing Yoga and Pilates is a win-win for many athletes. Less injuries, increased mobility and improved mental control. Explore the many types and styles of practice to find what works for you.

Sit Up Straight and Listen to Your Body Remember when your mother told you to sit up straight, get some sleep and eat right? Well, she was right. Especially when she nagged you about good posture. Maintaining a proper posture takes a healthy core. It’s embarrassing to admit, but I used to hate sitting on chairs without backs because it exhausted me. After six months of Pilates and Yoga, I don’t have that

problem anymore. Experienced runners, if you’re spending way too much time at the physical therapist, it’s time to check out your local Pilates and Yoga staff and facilities. New runners, please listen to your bodies. Be careful. Wear the proper shoes, and don’t wait too long to replace them. Address injury when it’s fresh to avoid chronic injuries. Employ cross training and body strengthening exercises. There are so many things you can do to protect yourself. Just open your mind and heart to the possibilities.

Annie Bersagel, Women’s Marathon Champion

BY ALEX KURT 21

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

Even athletes who aren’t from Minnesota feel at home during the weekend events of the Twin Cities Marathon. The marathon this year served as the U.S. Open and Master’s Championships. For Annie Bersagel, running the Twin Cities Marathon was something of a homecoming. For Nick Arciniaga, it only felt like one. Bersagel, 30, attended ninth grade at Apple Valley High School and, in 2006, ran for Team USA Minnesota while living in Lakeville. “I live in Norway now, [but] my parents live in Victoria [Minnesota],” she says, explaining her listed residence in the results. “I have all my extended family here and South Dakota, so it feels a bit like coming home. So even though it’s a long way, when I saw the U.S. Championships were here, I just thought I had to come.” Bersagel didn’t let down those who came to watch October 6, winning the race and netting a USA Track & Field Marathon Championship in the process. Her time of 2:32:52 put her nearly three minutes ahead of runner-up Laura Portis of Kalamazoo, Michigan. “The first two runners took it out pretty hard…and I knew the pace was a bit ambitious. But I thought, ‘I want to be able to keep them within striking distance,’ and I just felt confident that, if this was going to be a real painful second half, it was going to be a real painful second half for all of us,” Bersagel says. “Luckily it went alright…it was not a negative split by any means.” Arciniaga, meanwhile, has no Minnesota roots. He grew up in Southern California, ran at Cal State Fullerton, and trains in Flagstaff, Arizona. But he heard plenty of support from the crowd en route to his first marathon victory and first national title. “The crowds out there, even in the middle of the race, it was so loud it was echoing in my ears. I really could not hear myself think at points,” he says. “The last 400 meters was…it’s not a home crowd, but so many people were cheering my name out there. It made it feel like everybody was

pulling for me. It means a lot to me, having the crowds out there and being able to come out here and perform like I wanted to.” The last 400 meters would be crucial for Arciniaga, 30, who had to sprint away from Josephat Boit, of Mammoth Lakes, California, for a three second victory in 2:13:11. He battled hamstring issues early to battle back to the lead pack and control the race near the end. “I made a move just after 18. I caught up to the main group and tried to spread things a bit and open it up,” he says. “I took the last lead just before, just at mile 25…right before 26, [Boit] came up on me again and you saw us battling the last 400 meters. Just trying to go all out. I just tried not to think about my legs hurting.” Elite Athlete Support and Hosting the U.S. Championships For Twin Cities In Motion Executive Director Virginia Brophy Achman, the thrilling open races were but one benefit of hosting the USA Track & Field Marathon Championships. “This year in particular, it was really anybody’s to win. When you’re at the finish line watching, it’s exciting to wonder who it’s going to be,” she says. “Both races were strong fields and strong finishes. We had good weather and good finishing times.” The Twin Cities Marathon weekend races have served as U.S. Championships in the past, including the 2011 and 2012 Ten Mile Championships. The marathon last served as the U.S. Championship in 2010. Achman says TCM’s repeated hosting of national championship races is a combination of TCM’s desire to support the professional side of the sport and of elite athletes’ positive impressions of the race. “We offer a substantial prize purse. We treat the athletes really well, and we have a strong media arm to create exposure,” she says.


“We pitch the championship to our media outlets.” “The athletes always have a good experience and we put on a good event,” she continues. “They like to come here. And the athletes get to have a say. There are athletes on the LDR committees where we make our pitch.” The 2013 Twin Cities Marathon also served as the U.S. Masters’ Championships. Mbarak Hussein, 48, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, won the men’s masters title in 2:20:20, and Sheri Piers, 42, of Falmouth, Maine, won the women’s title in 2:38:33. The Twin Cities Marathon will host the open championship again in 2014, and the master’s title through 2015. Achman says future bids will depend on the Olympic quadrennial cycle and such factors as the timing of the next Olympic Marathon Trials. “The 10 is a great tune up for January in a trials marathon year, if the trials is then,” she says. “And we’re one of the races that doesn’t offer appearance money. And in the fall, you’re competing with New York and Chicago. There are a lot of different factors about who shows up and who doesn’t.”

Beyond the U.S. Championships This year’s Twin Cities Ten Mile was far less stacked than the past two years, when a veritable who’s who of U.S. distance running toed the line to vie for a U.S. title over 10 miles. But two of last year’s returners took advantage of the thinner crowd to score wins. Team USA Minnesota’s Jon Peterson, 24, won the race overall in 49:02; Laura Paulsen, 24, representing the Twin Cities Track Club in the USA Track & Field Minnesota team circuit, won the women’s race in 58:46. “The gun went off, and I was alone,” says Peterson, who ran faster last year. “I was looking to PR, but I can’t really hold myself to that. My real goal was to give it a steady effort and see how it felt. And it felt pretty good.” Paulsen, likewise, ran faster last year but finished further back in the pack. “I was surprised at how comfortable the pace felt, since I haven’t had too much time to do many workouts. But, I just went with it and negative split, feeling really strong at the end of the race,” she says. “Overall, I was pleased and excited about my re-

sult. I didn’t run as fast as last year. But last year I really pushed myself and couldn’t walk for a few days after the race.” Achman says the whole of the weekend’s events, including the 5K, 10K and kids’ races Saturday, the day prior to the marathon and 10 mile, had record numbers of finishers. “Saturday is such a fun extension of the weekend,” Achman says. “You have that buzz around the finish line and people in the 5K and 10K know that marathoners and 10 milers will finish in the same spot.” She also says the record participation is indicative of a good trend in the sport. “We’ve grown our 5K and 10K and our corporate challenge series, and the kids’ program is getting bigger,” she says. “Saturday was pretty overcast, and it only rained a little bit, but we had record numbers in the diaper dash, and many registered that weekend, so we’re really pleased with how healthy it is.” “We continue to see more and more people who are new to running,” she continues. “We love that they come and spend the day with us.”

BY NATHAN LECKBAND

About two weeks after Carrie Tollefson ran the Twin Cities Marathon, her first, we met at a Caribou Coffee in St. Paul. She allowed me to join her for a run while she answered some questions about her marathon journey. Fortunately for me, seven minute mile pace is easy talking pace for Carrie, and she had a lot to say about her first marathon. After training as a collegiate and then professional runner, what was it like training like a “regular” runner with a newborn and a three year old? I didn’t have the time to do the proper build up. But, who does? With that young of a baby, I didn’t want to be so strict with my training where I got so emotionally invested that I wasn’t enjoying my training. I ran consistently five days a week, and my highest week was 63. I always had a pretty decent long run. My first long run was when Everett was seven weeks, and I had about eight straight weekends of 13 miles or more. What’s funny is that this has been the best and healthiest buildup I’ve had. Usually after a layoff my feet always flair up, and this time they were perfect. I don’t know if it was by not getting on a track or if it’s my new Reebok shoes, but this was the best build up I’ve had after a layoff. If I ever have an injury again or hopefully have another pregnancy, I think a marathon is maybe a good way to come back from something like that—just slowly build back. I didn’t get any lifting in, because I was trying to focus on the mileage. I didn’t do much core work. They recommend you wait eight weeks after your pregnancy, and by that point I was halfway through my marathon training. What advice can you offer people with tight schedules who still want to compete at a high level? I think they have to prioritize and kind of wing it. Be flexible with your training, but get it in. You don’t have to stick to your plan to a T. There’s a lot of times when I was tired—the night before the marathon I got up three times with Everett. There are

Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon Recap times when I couldn’t do it in the morning, so I did it at 8 PM, and if I couldn’t go that day, I’d go the next. Life is so important to keep balanced. I find when I’m happy, that’s when I run best, and I’m a good mom and good wife. You just have to use your time as best you can—whether it’s a four mile run or a 24 mile run, you just have to enjoy the moment as. The goal is to stay healthy and get to the starting line. My running has always been performancebased, but I like seeing my friends too. The highlight of my week, besides my family life, was seeing my friends and doing our Saturday long run. Tell me about the marathon. I started with “the Angies,” Angela Voight and Angela Williams, and then Katie McGregor jumped in with me. At mile 5 I stopped and use the bathroom, which I never really have to do, and Katie stopped with me. After catching up to “the Angies,” we got separated at a water stop around mile 7. Then I said to Katie, I think I want to run 6:30 pace. Well, we were running 6:18s. And then at mile 25, Angie Williams went by me and ended up running 2:59! I should have tried to run the race I meant to run and stayed with “the Angies.” Then I would have maybe snuck under 3 hours. Speaking of the toughest miles of the marathon, how hard were they? I know I've decided to quit running marathons during the last four miles of my last three marathons. I had no ailments for before the race besides my back was sore, but by the time I was sick of my back being sore, other stuff started getting sore—when the wall hits, it hits hard. I walked away from my very first marathon, and even though I’m an Olympic athlete, and I am someone who probably has the ability to run under three hours, the first one’s the toughest. You missed your goal by a couple of minutes, but you looked so positive and upbeat at the end. Tell me about how you keep such a great attitude.

NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013

I can’t be disappointed with 3:02—it was an amazing journey and a really good race, even though I had to walk and wanted to go home rather than finish. I feel good that I can go and speak about my marathon experience and relate to 99.9% of the people, because how often does it go perfect? You've talked about running another marathon, and there was a lot of buzz on Facebook about Grandma’s, but you've also said you'd run Boston with your sister. What's it going to be? Grandma’s Marathon in June and then Boston Marathon a year from next April? I am excited to do another marathon, but part of my problem is I’m trying to work as well. I want to do a lot of these races, but a lot of times I’m already booked to do commentary. Sometimes I can do both, but for that big of race, it’s hard. Even for Twin Cities I was crazy busy. It was so fun, but it was so busy. I was on my feet from 6:30 AM to 4:30 PM the day before the race. You and Charlie look like you have a lot of fun as well as being a little competitive with each other. Can you tell me more about your relationship and how that affects your training? Charlie’s a great dad, works really hard, and doesn’t want to miss out on anything. He was ambitious when we were having our Wednesday night date nights right after Everett was born, and we were going for a run, then he was doing a Saturday long run. Pretty soon date nights went away, and he was only doing the Saturday long run. He calls it the “lifetime taper plan.” Charlie played football at Hamline, and yeah, we’re competitive, but I’m a little bit different with the leg speed I was given. I think we’re more suited to compete over the longer events. He’s a three-time Iron Man. The guy is just so tough. When he’s ornery he just gets after it and gets it done. He really shouldn’t have been able to finish that marathon, but he did.

The Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon

Reality Show The Road to the Finish Line BY CANDY PATRIN

Congratulations to our three runners, Tom Huberty, Kevin Rassier and Kate Williamson, who have shared their pre-marathon experiences with RunMinnesota during the last several months and completed the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon (TCM) on October 6, 2013. Here is what the trio said about the marathon, the support they received and the ďŹ nish times as compared to their goals.

Tom Huberty

AGE: 61 | MINNEAPOLIS

Huberty’s marathon goal was to get to St. Paul as fast as the summer training would take him. He crossed the finish line at 5:34:09, his best marathon time this year. He recalls being “elated” with a “sense of real accomplishment and satisfaction.” Huberty, a Charter Club member, has finished every TCM to date, and this year’s event also marked his 100th marathon. He noted a couple of surprises this year, beginning with the weather that started out cool and sunny and changed to a steady drizzle. Huberty also thought that he was more relaxed this year than in the past and, from his position in the first corral, was able to have a good start, stay focused and hold his pace. Huberty is grateful for the support he receives for his running, especially on marathon day. “I believe behind most runners that can run 100 marathons, there is someone that shares the elation and helps with a soft landing on a disappointing day,” says Huberty. For Huberty that person is his wife, Elizabeth Watkins, who has weathered his “mood swings” and been there for him at the finish to provide a guiding hand to get him home. This year for Huberty’s 100th marathon, Watkins made a sign that read “2,620 miles.” She held it up for Huberty to see at the 17 mile mark. In addition to his wife, he appreciates the special handling provided to Charter Club members by Twin Cities in Motion as well as the sponsors that support the event. Huberty has another marathon before year’s end. He is registered for the St. Jude Memphis Marathon in December.

Kevin Rassier

AGE: 54 | MAPLE GROVE

Rassier had a formula in mind at the start of TCM, his 100th marathon. He wanted to finish in a time equal to or better than the average of his previous 26.2 milers. Rassier did just that with a 3:14:07, a Boston qualifying time and below his average of 3:15:37. “It was an awesome feeling coming down that final stretch towards the Capitol,” says Rassier. “I have never seen a finish line that didn’t look great, but to me nothing compares to the view of the TCM finish.” While he says that to finish his 100th marathon was special, Rassier felt great pride to watch his son, Paul, run down the hill and past the St. Paul Cathedral to finish his first marathon. Paul came in at 4:02:49 and struggled with cramps during the last two thirds of the marathon. His brother, Dan, who started further back, crossed the finish shortly after Paul with a 4:01:44. Rassier enjoyed the support of family, friends and MDRA members along the course. He had the company of a couple of his friends who helped him stay on pace during the marathon. Rassier is also appreciative of the work done by the many volunteers who make it possible for the runners to stay the course and concentrate on their effort. One of the things that helped keep Rassier on his goal was the training he did with the MDRA marathon class. In his third year of training with the class, Rassier recommends the experience to others. “It is great to

run with the mix of veteran runners, first timers and everything in between, all working to reach their individual goals.” Rassier is currently registered for Boston 2014. It will be his second Boston, although he has made his Boston qualifying time every year since 1996.


Kate Williamson

AGE: 36 | MINNEAPOLIS

Williamson wanted to finish the marathon wwith a smile on her face and injury free. She did it with a time of 5:24:40. She admits that her training probably was not what she had hoped it would be. However, Williamson says that the time she spent with family and friends was more important to her than to get in more training. On marathon day, Williamson soaked up the whole experience and had a variety of marathon day highlights. She remembers being passed by a guy wearing a Chewbacca (the legendary Wookiee from the Star Wars movies) costume, hearing a Beagle howling at the runners that passed by and a sign held by a spectator at mile two: “I don’t know you, but I am proud of you.” Williamson says that she was surprised at how emotional she felt during the race and the support she received from friends along the way. Her friends met Williamson at mile 13 after she sent a text asking for some nutrition that she had forgotten to pack. In addition, one of her best friends and her fiancée were there at the start of Williamson’s last mile. “I think that the stress of the wedding and the discomfort of running a marathon with less than ideal training made it an emotional journey,” says Williamson. With all of the highs and lows that take place over the course of 26.2 miles, Williamson has a favorite moment when she was reunited with her fiancée, Graeme Webster, who waited for her behind the volunteers who distribute the medals. Webster also ran the marathon and finished in 3:23:01. While Williamson is pretty sure that she will do another marathon some day, those plans will be put on hold as she and Webster start their married life together and a family.

Note: Thank you to Huberty, Rassier and Williamson for sharing their running stories. Hopefully you will have been able to identify with some of the challenges they each faced and have been inspired by their different approaches to the marathon. Huberty and Rassier have each done 100 marathons and do not plan on stopping. In fact, Rassier has now completed number 101 at the Mankato Marathon on October 20, 2013.

A Tribute to Roy Griak

USATF Hallf of Fame continued from page 14

continued from page 14

Heather Van Norman praise, that he made everyone he encountered feel important. Using as a reference the experience of a former member of the track and field team I know, I can imagine talking to the Coach about joining the team. After a few questions, he would think, “No talent. Eager, though.” and say to me, “Come on, let’s get you a uniform. You can train with the team.” He lifted up countless athletes and others. Don Timm completed the tributes. No matter how busy he was, he said, Coach always made me feel special. Though I came to the University as a middling runner, he recalled, “He got me the equipment and welcomed me to the team.” Thereafter, he encouraged us at every turn to work hard to be the best student, athlete, citizen and parent we could be. Coach Griak spoke last. “It’s really all about you,” he said, “Not me. But I’m up here, so what the hell can I do?” He spoke of the years of seven day work weeks, saying, “This is not a job. When I retire, I may look for a job. This is fun. I just loved spending seven days a week thinking about the punks I had… Because you have to care about people… I loved those kids… Get through the tough times… Be snotty-nosed tough, and go on… “You give back to me more than I’ve ever given to you,” he said. “I’ve had more tears in my eyes during this program than in a long, long time. It’s been a great ride, and it may continue for another 20 years. I love all of you. Thank you.”

Born and raised in Windom, Minnesota, Heather’s high school career was singular in its performances, if not unique in the history of high school athletics in this country. In the eighth grade, she finished third at the State Class 1A meet in the 200 meters and 400 meters. That was the last time she would lose in high school. She accomplished the incredible “quad-triple,” winning the 100 meters, 200 meters and 400 meters in her four high school years. As a one person team in 1987, Heather, a junior, scored enough points to secure the state title for Windom. With four teammates, she repeated the state team title as a senior. Competing for Louisiana State University, Heather won All American honors in six events. Heather has coached track and field at Rice, Georgia Tech and Tulane. She is currently head women’s track and field coach at Nicholls State University in Louisiana.

COACHES/ADMINISTRATORS Scott Christensen Scott is one of the great track and field and cross country coaches in Minnesota state high school history. As the coach at Stillwater High School since 1979, he has won 13 state team titles in cross country and five in track and field, including 2013. Under Scott’s tutelage, no less than 25 athletes have won state championships and 185 have won conference championships. He is a three time track and field Minnesota Coach of the Year and a four time cross country Minnesota Coach of the Year. In a distinction not matched in the country, Scott has had four athletes who would go on from Stillwater to run the mile in under four minutes. He coached the Junior World Cross Country Team in 2003 and the Senior World Cross Country Team in 2008. Scott was president of the Minnesota Track and Field Coaches Association from 1991 to 2005. He is the author of books and articles on running and coaching. Craig Yotter, USATF Minnesota Managing Director, stood in as speaker for Coach Christensen, giving an entertaining presentation of the coach’s career. Coach Christensen could not attend. He was coaching his cross country team.

VETERAN/MASTER Carter Holmes Carter earned distinction as both a fine collegiate runner and a great all around master athlete. Getting a late start as a runner (he was a terrific wrestler first), he came into his own quickly. In his senior year at Washburn High School, he won the Twin Cities two mile indoor championship, setting a new record, and posted a mile PR of 4:25. At the University of Minnesota, he was a member of the 1969 national champion cross country team. In his specialty, the steeplechase, Carter was seventh in the Big Ten as a junior and sixth as a senior. In his senior year, he missed the finals of the NCAA steeplechase by .1 second. He also ran on the 30K national AAU championship road race team finishing eighth. As a master athlete, Carter’s record may be nonpareil. He accumulated 17 All American standards in running, throwing and multi-discipline events. At national meets, he has medaled in the intermediate hurdles, the steeplechase, the heptathlon and the pentathlon, winning gold in the pentathlon. Only slowed by a heart attack, Carter continues to compete at state meets, competing in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 400 meters, pushing his walker as fast as he can go, to the cheers of the crowd.

Don Timm The stars of the local world of track and field were out this night. Some of the attendees of the ceremony included Coach Roy Griak, Coach Bob Hoisington and Coach Gary Wilson (all past winners of the Coach Award), Phil Lundin, Janis and Barney Klecker (Janis is a past winner of the Elite Athlete Award), Rick Kleyman and Don Timm (both past winners of the Elite Athlete Award). Tim closed the ceremony, and the conversation among the runners sped on for an hour and a half, until we had to leave the building.

Heidi is researching the cost for this program to offer incentives for our members via the Virtual Bag concept. Old Business: None

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) has created a community advisory committee to be participate in the planning and execution of the trail maintenance. Nathan Campeau will represent MDRA’s board of directors in advocating that the path be paved with asphalt (v. concrete) which is the surface preferred by the running community. 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 Keller Miler, either for more information or to attend a board meeting to get a feel for the opportunity. Programs: There is an opening for one or preferably two people to oversee the Polar Bear runs Saturdays at 8am, November through February, alternating locations at St Thomas and Calhoun. A stipend is offered. Those interested should contact Heidi Miler at hmiler@hotmail.com The Fall Marathon Training Program continues to be a highly positive experience for participants. MDRA was a strong presence at the recent Superior Endurance races at Moose Mountain in Lutsen, with runners in all events (marathon, 50 Mile and 100 Mile). Promotions:Got an idea for promoting MDRA? Let us know and we might use it at our TCM Expo booth this fall! Attention race directors: MDRA is now accepting race information to be included in the highly sought MDRA Annual Race Calendar, 2014 issue. Race: The Como Relays concluded after a well-attended season directed by John Cramer. Dominance of MDRA’s Grand Prix is in hot contention with over 100 runners; standings can be viewed on MDRA’s website. Last month we had ten paid rentals of our race equipment, resulting in race equipment revenue showing positive to budget YTD. MDRA Victory races were highly successful, with attendance up from 2012. City of Lakes 25K registration remains solidly predictable with no appreciable gain in participation. The Race Committee Dinner will be held November 10 at a location to be determined. USATF: The USATF executive committee for the upcoming season is Rick Recker, President; Bruce Leasure, VP; Mark Kurg, Secretary; Chris Kartschoke, Treasurer. Upcoming races include the Salomon Autumn Trail Series (four 5K’s) held September 4 – October 18.
