A penny here, a penny there = a party By BRUCE MORRISON, Publisher bruce.morrison@running.net You're on a training run and just passed a penny. Do you pick it up? Members of the Florida Striders do. Jenny Allen heads up a club program called “Jenny's Pennies.” Those little coins and any other money found by club runners go into the fund throughout the year. On Sunday, Oct. 13, a group of members gathered at 6:30 a.m. at Sun Tire in Orange Park for a run, followed by the 35th anniversary celebration at 8 a.m. provided by the fund, plus edibles brought by club runners.

save the money they found running and take their jar of pennies to the Marine Corps Marathon. A couple of hours after the marathon, 30 to 40 striders and friends would get together at the hotel to swap stories, rest, snack and celebrate the occasion by sipping champagne, thus the idea for a champagne fund.”

Some of the pennies found by club members.

Jenny Allen at the goodies table during the annual celebration.

Jenny Allen is pictured with husband, Richard (left), and club member Bobby Greene.

Over 30 years, members have turned in $2,926.26. Over the past year, members found $133.68. Those Sunday morning runs began in October 1978 and have continued every Sunday at the same location at 6:30 a.m. for all those years - more than 1800 consecutive Sunday mornings. In 1984, club members established the fund. Just $1.09 was found that first year, then $8.81 and $5.65 the next two years. In the fourth year, collections were $20.71, totaled $52.62 in 1995 and $126.19 in 1996. Over the next 17 years, the fund has averaged $145.34.

Jenny's first time looking for money resulted in 32 pennies in a steak house parking lot. “It was going to be easy to fill up my jar,” she thought. It wasn't that easy, though. “The amount of money I was finding didn't buy much champagne.” Club runners persisted. “Striders were running with their eyes glued to the ground, looking for those mangled, road-rashed pennies. Our pot began to grow and I became the treasurer. We were checking phone booths, newspaper racks, and drink machines. We were finding coins and folding money,” she said. Members have found money elsewhere, too. One turned in 13 cents found in Hawaii. A North Carolina member found money and sent checks for those amounts. A neighbor began leaving little envelopes with pennies on Jenny's doorstep. A car wash employee handed a jar of pennies total-

(Note to all runners who will now watch for those pennies - or have been collecting them: A penny dated before 1982 is made of 95% copper. The melt value is more than two cents. Newer pennies are made of zinc with a copper coating and have very little melt value. Excluding any silver coins that you may occasionally find in circulation, those pre-1982 copper cents are the only regularly circulating American coins with a melt value exceeding face value. A nickel is 75% copper and 25% nickel and is worth about fourand-a-half cents in melt value and has occasionally exceeded five cents in melt value. It is not legal, however, to melt the coins. There has been consideration to eliminating pennies. Canada eliminated minting the one cent coin this year. I save pre-1982 cents and all nickels in the belief they will grow in value. Bruce.) From the mailbox: Danny Seagle of Morganton, NC with his renewal to Running Journal: “Have been running 44 years - 44,000 miles - only 20 miles a week and 74 years old. Love your magazine as I started subscribing to Carolina Runner years ago. Thank you for all you do for the exciting sport of RUNNING.” (Running Journal started as Carolina Runner in 1984. Our first issue was put together on a kitchen table. Thanks to Danny and other veteran subscribers for continuing to run and subscribe.)

From email: Chuck Bartlett, running coach in the state of Washington and web guru for Running Journal, lived in South Carolina as a youngster. He wrote of this memory: “I went to Sullivan Island Elementary School. At recess we would split up into Members of the Florida Striders at the annual celebration at Sun Tire. teams, not for football or baseball … no, we had two teams, the North and the South.

Running Journal • December 2013

www.running.net after I started back I had a stress fracture in my hip and wondered if I would be able to run again. I went out and helped out at some Mangum Track Club events and loved just supporting the others and being a part of our special club. Lucky for me I healed and have had my best year running ever. When I was injured, I decided that if for whatever reason someday I would not be able to run anymore, I would still volunteer and help others in the running community any way I can. As good as the running is, the people we come in contact with are even better. Just be a part.” Lee Watson, 60, Hamlet, NC “Get involved with one or two ways -volunteering or putting a run together. I just ran the Chicago Marathon and saw the wheelchairs gather at the start. There must be something that [you] can put together at a run to allow this.” George Wannop, Broadway, NC “Volunteering is the best way to become familiar with the sport of running and ultra-running, in particular. It's also probably the best way, once one's running days are finished (God forbid that should ever happen), to go out. Give a little, take a little, then give it back again.” Kevin Spradlin, Rockingham, NC “Well, I suspect, judging from our events, some enjoy the sport by volunteering for race events. Mangum Track Club events have some of the best volunteers around -- seems to be a grass roots effort. I think some of these repeat volunteers enjoy the events and fellowship of being involved in our events.” Steven Jacobson, Raleigh, NC “I had a knee replacement in July, haven't run since it became too painful well over a year ago. I still work the data

He Said, She Said Enjoying Running when you can’t run “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” You've heard it before, probably recited it, and may have even tried to believe it. Sadly however, life experience has likely taught you that the sentiment is not always true. Words can hurt -- even without intent, even without being spoken, and even when the words are not directed personally towards you.

By Mary Marcia Brown

Volunteers at the recent YMCA Livestrong 5k in Lakeland, FL

The October issue of Running Journal was a recent reminder of how seemingly supportive running articles, race results, and running news can actually be daggers to the running spirit of eternal runners in heart whose bodies may have decided not to follow. After reading that former subscribers had conveyed to Publisher Bruce Morrison that reading about running “hurt” when they are no longer able to run, I immediately wanted to give them words that would offer hope instead of hurt. I wanted them to continue to experience the joy of running, even if their laces have been replaced by slippers and their miles have morphed into reluctant smiles. This month I reached out to fellow runners to ask, “"How can someone enjoy the sport of running when he/she can no longer physically run?" He (Male Runners) Said… “People who no longer run can still enjoy the sport by volunteering at events or by organizing and directing events. Who better to work aid stations or organize an event than a former runner? Crossing the finish line yourself is quite

an achievement but when you help others cross the finish line it's so rewarding.” Chris Young, Hope Mills, NC “Become a race director, because someone who has run understands how important it is to do things right.” L.C. Moore, Keeling, VA

“As I have grown older and seen my own ability to run decline, as well as other runners my age, I have noticed that it is not so much the ability to run as it is the ability to keep moving. When we can no longer run fast, we run slow; and when we can no longer run slow, we walk; and when we can no longer walk, we still strive to keep moving. Movement equates to life and is our lifestyle. We may seek other means to keep moving by biking, by wheelchair, or whatever is available to us. but the ultimate goal is to always maintain our lifestyle through movement and we do not give this up ever without a fight.” Bill Finley, Asheville, NC “The organized sport of running that we know wouldn't exist without the army of fantastic volunteers that make it run. Without the physical ability to run, there are many opportunities to stay active and vital within the running community through volunteerism.” Jay Curwen, Asheville, NC “Take photos of runners as they run past. Coach, direct a race, or sell running kicks.” Phil Brown, Lakeland, FL “Immerse yourself in helping others grow and enjoy what you once did. It will not be long before you find the thrill and enjoyment you once felt!” Donald Dees, Aberdeen, NC “I had a knee injury that kept me from being able to run on a regular basis for 11 years. It finally healed and I started back a little over 2 years ago. About 6 months CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Running Journal • December 2013

Down the Road A Comeback Race You will face it someday. Running a race for the first time after an accident, injury, or illness. It is a comeback race, and you will wonder if you are going to hurt yourself by doing it. What is your recovery race story going to be? Here is mine; my first race since the car wreck five months ago as I write this. A week before the race: My longest run since the accident, and my fastest. It was encouraging. It was a four-mile run, the first two miles at a 10-minute pace, the lasts two just under it. There was a time when I would have scoffed at a pace 'that slow' but not now. I decide I can run the Be Great 8K race the next Saturday. The race did something every race should do. They got their new course (it is the second running of the race) USATF certified and sent out the certification map via e-mail to the race entrants. My wife Kathy and I decided to drive the race course and it was a great course. It started and went through the Winthrop University campus, up a back road to and around and behind Glencairn Gardens, on through gently rolling old neighborhoods and back through the campus to finish where the race started. The course had some honestly gently rolling hills, but no long killer hills like some races describe as gently rolling. Race day September 21: Got there about an hour early to get a good parking place. It wasn't deadly hot for the 8 a.m. start, but it was about five or six degrees warmer than it had been all week, overcast and a bit more humid. Oh well, at least the rain held off until after noon -long after the race was over. We lined up for the start and it didn't look like a fast field. Edward, who lives less than half a mile from us, was right beside me and when I asked him what he wanted to run he said a 7:30 pace. I told him I was hoping to run 20 minutes slower than my PR which I had run back in 1984, the day Bruce Morrison asked me to start writing for this magazine. So I was hoping to run a 49:04 or just under 10minute pace. I realized I was lined up too close to the front and started to move back but the starting gun was fired when had I gotten back only a few steps, there was no warning nor countdown. You guessed it. I started out too fast. Less than a tenth of a mile and I was gasping for air and there were only about 10 runners ahead of me, so I slowed down. The first mile mark came up at 8:24

By Cedric Jaggers

which was way too fast after the 10 and 11 minute per mile pace I'd been doing in all my running. We went through the Winthrop campus and I was running right behind a Winthrop alum who was telling his 'spouse/wife/girlfriend?' what all the buildings were: “That's the library where I spent so much time studying” etc. It was fun to listen in. We went down the back road and then by the beautiful Glencairn Gardens. There was a much needed (by me) water table at the two-mile mark. Then lots of folks started passing me as I slowed down and at the three-mile mark, my body really started reminding me that I'd only been running three miles, three or four days a week the past couple of months, and that four slow miles was the longest run in the months since the accident. I gritted my teeth and tried to stay with the next runner who passed me. I couldn't stay with her. Then the next guy came by, hung with him a while, but he dropped me too. I was really glad they had another water station at the four-mile mark and I saw that I'd run a 10:04 mile, but did a double take when my watch showed the total time was 36:36. My mind was in that confused state you sometimes get when you are exhausted from starting and running too fast for the shape you are in during a race. I tried to do the math and see what I would need to run to make my goal of 49:04. I figured I could slow down even to an 11-minute pace and still make it. Okay, you see it; 36 plus 11 is not 49, but I was dazed enough to worry about it and think it was. Kathy can tell you I'm not good at math, and maybe now you'll believe her. Then another guy passed me. It was probably the best thing that could have happened. We were going back into the campus and had to run the same big loop back through and then to the finish line. I picked up the pace and hung with him for

a while, but couldn't stay with him, but he had kept me from continuing to slow down. Finally the finish line came up. I could see it and I tried to push hard all the way up the slight downhill to cross the line in 44:39 (8:59 pace). I was ecstatic. I was really pleased when I found out I had placed in my age group, something I hadn't done in the first Be Great 8k. When you come back it is such a joy to do better than you expected . It gives you hope and increases your expectations for the future. I could have let it go during the later parts of the race and still gotten my original goal, but I didn't. Will you? It is a hard thing when you are undertrained (compared to what you used to do) but sometimes sheer will power and pride can help you power through. Comeback races are tough. You don't know what is going to happen. This time at least, things worked out for me. Or so I thought Aftermath. October 31. I've been to the doctor. I've taken the anti-inflammatory pills. Here I sit with an aching foot. Seems I pulled a tendon (maybe by running further and faster than I was trained for?). That's another lesson to remember about comeback races. You can try to go too far in your comeback race -- I would probably have been okay for a 5K instead of an 8K. You can run too fast -- I might have been okay with a slower steady pace (as Kathy had recommended) than I ran in the race. But who knows? Lessons are easier to see and talk about after the damage is done. Now I get to slowly try to come back and get ready for yet another comeback race. Be careful when your comeback race comes. Maybe we'll see each other at the starting line and you'll be smarter in your comeback race than I was in mine. Cedric Jaggers was elected to the South Carolina Road Runners Hall of Fame in 1992.

“I ran the 2009 Run To Victory Half Marathon and remember seeing a young man running who had lost most of the use of his legs. He competed by using forearm crutches and seemed to be enjoying the experience. He was a hell of an inspiration that's for sure!” Terry Wilmoth, Kernersville, NC “Become a volunteer for your local high school's track/XC teams, join your local running club and volunteer in any way [you can].” Anthony Boerio, Greensburg, Pennsylvania “Every running event that occurs cannot occur without the help and time of volunteers. Whether you are a water pusher, course monitor, finish line [helper], or results tabulator, working a race or other running event is fun and rewarding. In doing so, you can remain a part of the running community that has been such a big part of your life for the time you spent running.” Robert Hill, Winston Salem, NC She (Female Runners) Said… “Pick a charity that [you] really support and cheer on a runner who supports [your] cause! Make a difference and support that difference you are making in someone's life.” Margo Miller Kummer , Winston-Salem, NC “Be a volunteer at racing events. They are always looking for people to hand out water, high five the runners, even throw paint at color runs. Plus you usually always get cool swag and free shirts!” Victoria Worley, Nathalie, VA “Be a mentor for the beginning 5k program and work with the walkers. Be a cheerleader for local events and support Special Olympic athletes!” Kathylyn Tibbetts Barnhill (parent of a Special Olympics athlete), Winston Salem, NC “Volunteer at local races.” Carolyn Sater Kanoy, Winston Salem, NC “Get involved in training programs and mentor those beginner runners. Try to coordinate, support and volunteer in local races. While I was pregnant and recovering and couldn't run, I got my fix for running by coaching a few friends. It was rewarding and gave me a fuzzy feeling.” Diana Parks-Solano, Sophia, NC “It doesn't leave your blood just because the body is not able. How many people watching football on Saturdays and Sundays have ever actually played? It doesn't decrease their enjoyment.” Jennifer Ennis, Raleigh, NC

Running Journal • December 2013

Fidler on the Run Fall Running Safety When my children were younger and I drove them to soccer practice, they regularly had to hear me identify members of the Darwin Club as we drove toward the fields. Mostly we would see cyclists without helmets, but occasionally we would see runners who were club members. In the 19th century, Charles Darwin proposed his theory of natural selection, which is still debated today. The strong, fast, and smart animals survive over the ages; the weak, slow, and dumb creatures perish. The Darwin Club is my invention (or maybe I borrowed it from someone else). Members are selected by me and rarely know they have been inducted. I pick people who exhibit behaviors that put them at risk. Because we are moving into the seasons with fewer hours of daylight, I hope to keep you out of the Darwin Club with the following suggestions: Wear reflective gear: When running in the dark, wear a reflective vest. A blinking light may be better. The next best item is a white shirt; colored clothing often functions as an invisibility cloak. Most mornings I am driving to work between 5 and 6 a.m. I am surprised by how many runners choose dark clothing and no reflective gear. I have almost hit several runners and I am watching for them. Would a driver who does not run be as alert? Know when the sidewalk is not your friend: In the dark, is the sidewalk the best chance for survival? In most cases, it is because the sidewalk removes you from the traffic. However, if your section of town has sidewalks that are broken or buckled, you may be safer in the street. Often, when you trip, you are on the ground before you can react. In my own experience, I've had one instance where I landed on my chin and another where I touched down on my shoulder. Leave the headphones at home. Running with headphones puts you at risk in several ways. When passing another runner, I usually shout, “On your left (or right).” Frequently, people cannot hear me and are quite startled when I slip by. These people would be easy marks if I had evil intent. Moreover, there is always the remote possibility you may need to dodge a car. A couple of years ago, a runner was running with earbuds and was struck and killed … by a crashing airplane. Run facing traffic … except when you shouldn't: In most cases you should run facing traffic. This positioning gives you a chance to move. If I do not see you run-

ning in your charcoal-colored outfit, at least you can swerve to the curb when I drive past. But as I learned when I lived in Boone, NC, there are some exceptions to the rule. Sometimes running around switchbacks on those mountain roads we were safer running with traffic. If we were coming around a hairpin turn, running with traffic we could just jump off the road. Facing traffic, we could not only be hidden from vehicles, but we would find a rock wall obscuring the turn. Be alert, and use circumstances to determine when you need to run with traffic. To sum up: This fall and winter, wear reflective gear when running in the dark, open your ears, run on the sidewalk if it is plane and face traffic. Do not be inducted into the Darwin Club - save that honor for the guy riding his bike with no helmet, tethered to two dogs and plugged into his music Lee Fidler runs and coaches in Stone Mountain, GA, and can be reached at leefid@bellsouth.net

When I wrote "Eat Vegan on $4 a Day," I stated in a chapter, "It is more important to have someone who loves and respects you then a clone at the dinner table.â&#x20AC;? As I began speaking around the US and Canada, I mentioned this in my talks. Once, I just asked randomly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, how many of you live in a mixed marriage, where one of you is veg and the other is not?â&#x20AC;? Lots of nodding, eye-rolling and looks of frustration. I was surprised at how many people raised their hands. They began asking, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How do you cope? How do you do it?â&#x20AC;? Sometimes it was almost the entire audience. I thought if that many people were dealing with this, it might make a good topic for a second book. It seemed like this struck such a nerve. It is, thanks in part to the popularity of people like former President Bill Clinton spreading the word about how a vegan diet can reverse heart disease and other conditions like diabetes, obesity and other preventable diseases of affluence. As a result, we have many new people at the vegan table. The rush to eating vegan is also due to the popularity of cooking classes. I'm still waiting for a vegan cooking instructor to replace Paula Deene. Even though that hasn't happened yet, cooking classes around the country are teaching people what their doctors have not: Food is powerful medicine. Before my books came out I was a trained cooking instructor for the national nonprofit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and their Cancer Project classes. Classes can be done anywhere from 1 to 8 in the series. The instructor cooks and demonstrates recipes from a cooking instruction manual. Then they get to taste samples so people really know what delicious, easy and also very cheap vegan food tastes like. I would see incredible results. The best success was a woman who lost 120 pounds in 8 months never counting a calorie and loving the food, while staving off multiple myeloma, one of the more fatal forms of bone cancer. The local newspaper did her story with before and after photos. Like her, most people have gone vegan while already in a relationship. That relationship can be with a significant other, our family or our friends. Most people

Women’s Running

A Running Birthday Celebration By the time you are reading this article I should be done with step one of my birthday celebration. The end of November yours truly hits the "magic" age of social security and Medicare. I will celebrate my 65th birthday and I thought that 65 is one of those milestone birthdays that deserves a truly unique celebration. I know the day is being celebrated with a catered "surprise party" being orchestrated by my Daddy's wife in beautiful Daytona Beach Shores, FL. But to celebrate my running and continued good health, I decided an appropriate celebration should last the entire year. Thus I decided to run a marathon a month to commemorate the occasion. Not one to hesitate I am running the Space Coast marathon two days after my birthday. I ran it last year in late November and fortunately for me it moved to December this year. It is the oldest marathon in Florida as this is the 42nd annual. Over the years the promoters have created quite an event (it sold out in July). The course follows the breathtaking Indian River and it is flat with only a couple of bumps. I watched dolphins frolicking last year as I ran. The Expo is at the Kennedy Space Center and all of the aid stations are space themed. The BIG BANG Series honors the NASA's Shuttle Program with an awesome space shuttle medal for each shuttle's inaugural flight (2013 - Columbia; 2014 - Challenger; 2015 - Discovery; 2016- Endeavour; 2017- Atlantis). Believe me these are huge medals and besides the tech shirt you get a beach towel instead of the mylar blanket at the finish and a food bonanza second to none. It seems the appropriate way to launch my adventure! In planning out my year I realized that this was going to be a pricey endeavor. I attempted with no luck to find a sponsor. So I took expenses into account and am fortunate to be a member of the Darkside Running Club. Members are provided three free marathons a year and this definitely helped the budget as I only have to overnight in Peachtree City to get my New Years Day (January), Memorial Day (May) and Labor Day (September) marathons. My eternal thanks go to Scott Ludwig and the Darksiders for this bene-

fit!! February will find me back in my old stomping grounds where I truly began my running life at Florida State University for the 40th annual Tallahassee Marathon. Nancy Stedman and Jay Silvanima direct an incredible event that utilizes the rail trail for a flat and calming course that also takes in the huge sports complex at FSU. Their aid stations are second to none and their volunteers have every thing any runner could want. The pottery awards are very special. The finish on the Mike Long track reminds me of many workouts there. March will take me back to Albany, GA, for the Snickers Marathon. This is another well-run event that boasts being a "top 10 Boston Marathon qualifier." The course winds through scenic Albany and is fairly flat. I debated for months on my April marathon. After arguing with myself I will return to another familiar area to run the 118th Boston Marathon. I go to Boston every year to cover the race for Running Journal but after the events of last year I convinced myself to run with 36,000 participants to honor those fallen last year at the finish line. As I have become more age challenged I find I like my marathons smaller and not the crazy crowds of the big city marathons. But this one is special for so many reasons so I will run Boston this year to show we are not intimidated as runners and are always Boston Strong. If you follow my column at all you know that June could never be anything but Grandmas Marathon in Duluth, MN. This will be my 20th year to return to Duluth to what is without a doubt my very favorite marathon. The marathon weekend is a very special tradition and this 38th year will see a new executive

www.running.net director and new race director. I will go early to work on the hospitality committee for a week but I plan to get a little more rest than in the past so I am not so tired at the start after working all week. July will take me to a very hilly venue but a spectacularly scenic marathon as I take on the Wipro San Francisco Marathon. The city is our favorite so I figured Steve should get some fun out of my adventure. The course goes over the Golden Gate Bridge and back through varied areas of the city. It will be a gorgeous tour. I have yet to confirm but am leaning towards the Leading Ladies Marathon in South Dakota for my August marathon. It is an all ladies marathon through Spearfish Canyon which is a trip through the mystical Black Hills. I have always wanted to do this one with guys in tuxedos handing out chocolates at an aid station. If the budget cooperates this should be the August fun. Again I have not committed to October but I am seriously considering the Twin Cities marathon which is the national masters championship. I have gone the last few years and have helped out in hospitality. My only concern is the size of the race but I suspect this is a serious contender for October. November is a toss up right now. I could run the New York City Marathon but it really is too big for me and I have done it. If Rock and Roll Savannah is not the weekend of New York I am thinking that is a real possibility as is the Soldier Marathon in Columbus, GA. But I may actually return to where my adventure started as Space Coast may be back in November. I have a bit of time to decide on the August, October, and November marathons but I expect to firm them up soon. If any of my readers have suggestions for August, October, and November, send them my way. I am always open to good recommendations. I hope to figure out how to blog so I can keep anyone interested in my journey apprised of my progress. Please wish me a safe journey free of injury. As runners it is always so much fun to discover new ways to do things and stay motivated. As the New Year approaches take some time to make some awesome plans for your running future. Have a very happy holiday season.

“I've been running for over three decades and I spent 15 of those years running past a nursing home that was around the corner from my home. On sunny days, the residents would sit out front and many of them would wave at me and smile as I passed by. I often thought about how I would feel when my legs would no longer carry me. It would break my heart but I know that I would be a wonderful cheerleader. I would probably beg my family to take me to local events so that I could cheer loudly from the sides.” Cherie Titus McCafferty , Anderson Creek, NC “Volunteer. As a runner you know better than anyone what it takes to finish a race. Being the leader of the volunteers would be a great way to give back to the sport that you loved. Having just finished a half marathon on a hilly course, there was one volunteer at the top of a hill cheering all of us on. He started encouraging us while we were at the bottom and continued until we reached the top!” Lisa K. Radak Rosche, Halifax, VA “I fully enjoy the sport of running by walking (fast) the races. I have volunteered, but as long as I am upright I will be out there proving I can move. Being a part of the Mangum Track Club community helps me enjoy life in general.” Irene Russell, 67 Southern Pines, NC So, as we enter the season of giving, consider giving your time, knowledge, expertise, support or simple presence to the sport that helped you move miles and allowed you to make merry memories. There are still memories to be made and experiences to be shared. Whether you are a runner, a walker, a roller, a race director, a coach, a cheerleader, or a spectator, spend your time being an integral part of the miles being traveled. Offer others the gifts that yesterday's miles gave to you. Giving is receiving, and when it comes to gifts…the more the merrier!

Masters Running Running for Health or Performance - or Both! Do you consider yourself an athlete? Or are you training, and maybe racing, mostly to stay fit? For some of us masters runners, including myself, this question may be hard to answer. I was definitely an athlete in my younger years, but today I like to think of myself as a hybrid, a little of each in other words. I still race, and prepare for my races by doing long runs and intervals, the proportion of each depending on the distance of my goal race. While racing I give my best, and I usually have my sights on placing in my age group. But I also teach fitness classes, take Zumba and yoga classes when I can, and work with weights to strengthen my legs and tone my upper body. During at least some of these workouts my primary purpose is NOT to improve race performance. Instead, it might be to encourage my students to get fit (teaching classes), to look good in a sleeveless shirt (upper body toning), to have fun (Zumba), or to relax (yoga). I used to think that the two parts of me, the athlete and the fitness enthusiast, blended very well together. But after attending a sports nutrition lecture during a recent fitness conference, I realized there is a significant difference between being an athlete and being a fitness exerciser. We need to both eat and train differently if we aspire to be athletes, compared to if we work out mainly to stay healthy, to lose weight, or to tone muscles. I am not going to get into the eating part in detail here, since Running Journal already has an expert nutritional columnist, Nancy Clark. She has the qualifications and credentials to give you detailed nutritional advice, while I do not. Instead I want to focus on what might define someone as an athlete (in this case, a competitive runner), versus a runner who primarily aspires to stay fit or lose weight. The main difference between athletes and fitness enthusiasts lie in what motivates us, i.e. why we train. And therefore also in how we train. Athletes train for performance. For runners, this could be to improve our personal best in the 5K, to qualify for the Boston Marathon, or to win our age group in the next race. We fine tune our training to reach these performance goals. It means doing very long runs (to get that Boston qualifier), or sessions where we concentrate on speedwork. Sometimes these sessions might replace general fitness training, such as going to the gym and lifting weights, especially if we have limited time to work out. Also, competitive runners tend to run every day, or almost every day, while fitness runners often run just a couple of days

per week. With a more rigorous training schedule, it is also important for competitive runners to adhere to nutritional guidelines (which I will not go into in detail here), and to get enough rest between workouts so that muscle damage can be repaired. Fitness enthusiasts are motivated by different factors, and have different reasons why they exercise. It may be to lose weight, or to maintain their health and feel better. If you belong to this category you may have picked running as part of your exercise regimen, but you are likely to do other activities also, for example lifting weights, cycling or golf. Maybe you run a race every once in a while, but then mostly for health or social reasons, and not to improve your time or take home hardware. Some of you may know right away whether you are competitive or fitness runners. But if you feel like you are “on the fence,” ask yourself a few questions: First and foremost, what motivates you to run? Is it to be faster and get ahead of the competition, or is it to feel better, be among friends, and lose a few pounds? Second, how often do you run? Is it almost every day, or just a few times a week? In the latter case, are you doing other forms of exercise on the remaining days? And if you run on most days, does it feel like a major setback if you miss a run or two, and therefore won't log as many miles for the week? Finally, do you have specific running goals, or are your goals primarily weight loss or other health related parameters (such as lowering blood pressure)? If running is your primary exercise, if you run almost every day, and if your goals center around getting faster, then you are definitely an athlete, regardless of your age. Even if you are no longer able to place as high as you used to in the overall division at road races, you are still an athlete as long as your goals and training are performance oriented. All of us will find it increasingly difficult to place in the races as we get older. There may be fewer young people pursuing our sport today compared

to a few decades ago, but there will still be several young speedsters at most races! However when we no longer have the ability to take home an overall award or to run as fast as we used to, our focus on the competitive aspect of running will sometimes decrease as well. We may become tempted to replace some runs with other sports or activities that we were forced to put on the back burner during our prime running days. I definitely belong in this latter category. I was very competitive when I was younger and did not participate in other sports since that would take time away from my running. But then time started to take its toll and I was no longer able to run as fast or as much as I used to. I stayed competitive in the masters category for a few years, but after several years of hard and specific training I became ready to try new things. I started lifting weights more, added yoga, and eventually also Zumba! My focus shifted more towards fitness in general, and I even became a certified personal trainer and a group fitness instructor. But I also continued to stay dedicated to what was and still is my first love, running. So, can I still call myself an athlete? Or have I become a fitness enthusiast instead? I would like to think of myself as an athlete, since I still compete. Also, much of my training focus is on performance. I still run intervals (although on the road and not on the track), and I prepare myself for half marathons by doing long runs, lasting two

13

hours or more. But my training is not as rigorous as it once was, and as I mentioned above, I now participate in a couple of fitness activities in addition to running. Also, I am not as focused on the races as I once were, and (with the exception of one mile races!) not as nervous as I used to be either. Instead I go with the flow and am happy if I run well but not devastated if I don't. These days I show up at the races at least as much to see my running buddies and stay involved in the sport, as I do to run well and take home hardware. Maybe there isn't such a clear distinction between athletes (i.e. competitive runners) and fitness runners after all! Elite runners are definitely athletes of course, i.e. very performance oriented. And on the other side of the spectrum there are runners who go out just a couple of days a week to stay fit and healthy and never enter a race. Most of us masters and age group runners will probably fall somewhere in between. Some of us are more competitive than others, but we all fit in somewhere on the continuum between being purely performance oriented and purely fitness oriented. The lesson to be learned from the above is to know the reason why we run, and adjust our goals and training thereafter. This will reinforce our choices regarding when and how much we run. It will also help us cope with any sacrifices we may have made in order to fit running into our schedule. Above all, it will help us stay motivated, have fun, and enjoy the journey. And this is what running is all about! Lena Hollmann is a certified personal trainer with American Council on Exercise (ACE), and also the Southern Region Director for RRCA.

Running Through the Age Groups

the finish line and secure their medals. They have made lasting memories, and will no doubt be making more. I know I will. Happy Running!

Gotta Love That Bling! One of the most rewarding things I believe runners can experience in longer races these days is the special “bling” that so often awaits them when they finish. Usually this means you have to race a distance of a half marathon or longer, although I'm seeing special finishers' medals now being handed out in 15K's, the occasional 10K, and even one 5K I like to run in Myrtle Beach. I've seen all aspects of racing become more sophisticated over the past 30 years. Timing systems have progressed from the old fashioned popsicle stick method (which I sometimes miss), to the reusable timing chip that must be returned at the finish, to the ever popular and effective D-Tag and B-Tag type systems. T-shirts have progressed from old fashioned cotton, to long-sleeved cotton, and now to technical shirts. Race divisions have progressed from top three overall and top three in ten-year age groups, to five-year age groups, masters, grandmasters, youngest, oldest, middle of the pack and other categories. It didn't used to be the case that simply finishing a race would earn you a medal and the bragging rights associated with it. You had to place in the top three, either overall or in your age group. I recall back in my much faster days, I was virtually assured one of these awards at any given race. Now, that is not necessarily the case; I am not as fast as I once was, races are better attended and the depth of quality in running, especially -- it seems -- in the 40-44 age group, has increased exponentially. That makes runners like me, who have a hard time making the top three in some of the longer, larger races, really appreciate finisher medals. In fact, even the smallest examples of this bling far outclass the medals I used to receive. One of our local race directors recently sent out a survey to runners requesting their preference: Would we rather have a finisher medal or something “useful” at next year's half marathon? To me, it was a no-brainer: I would much rather have the medal, and that seemed to be the general consensus among runners responding to the survey. I prefer something that will be a lasting achievement, and that will years down the road serve up good memories of races past. Things like t-shirts, socks, gym bags and gift certificates

either wear out, are lost, get spent or simply go away. Not so with finisher medals. They keep their lustre forever and are easy to display without taking up too much room. In fact, I still have the very first medal I ever won in a race - it was for a one-miler when I was only 11. Some of my favorites include from the Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon which takes place in October of each year. I enjoy running the 5K race on Saturday and the half marathon race on Sunday. This nets two finisher medals and usually an age group award in the 5K. The finisher medals for the half are large, six-inch long surfboards. The race has a contest each year allowing the more artistic runners (I am certainly not one of them) to compete for the design of the finisher medals. First place designs the half marathon medal, second place gets the 5K medal. The ones this year were particularly gorgeous, and it is a neat way to get the runners involved in the races at a different level. I love the way some race directors have gotten creative with finisher medals. Many of them double as bottle openers (although I would never use them for fear of damaging them), and one in particular I thought was adorable consisted of a beer mug that doubled as a bottle opener … for an Oktoberfest race! Another consists of a beautiful rendition of the Battleship North Carolina with a moving tribute to fallen warriors on the back. Then there's the gigantic Divas Half Marathon finisher medal complete with pink ribbon. Then there's the one for the Key West Half Marathon in Florida. Probably my most cherished finisher medal, however, is one for which I didn't even run. It is the finisher medal earned by a cherished college friend and runnerbuddy when she ran her first and only marathon. She died tragically at a very young age not long after she ran the race.

Her aggrieved husband, in one of the most thoughtful gestures anyone has ever shown me, sent me her medal as a gift and eternal reminder. Every time I look at this medal, it brings back wonderful memories of my friend and the many runs and races we did together. I believe finisher medals have had the very positive effect of encouraging runners to train for, enter and finish races they might never have otherwise attempted. In this manner, they have helped races and the sport itself -- and the health benefits accompanying it -- grow. As I write this, I am only a week away from my first marathon in over fifteen years, the OBX Marathon in the beautiful North Carolina Outer Banks. I know this race won't be my fastest, and I'll be darned lucky to break four hours, but I am looking forward to the finisher medal featuring the historic Hatteras Lighthouse! Just knowing that medal is waiting will likely get me through that last punishing 10K. One of my favorite aspects of races these days is hanging around the finish line afterward and seeing the unmitigated joy in the faces of runners as they cross

Learning from the Young Guns Running Posture and Foot Strike Should I be a mid foot striker? A forefoot striker? Should I have a forward lean? Why do I get passed on downhills? That's what I look like when I run?! So many questions with so many different answers. There is a lot of information out there on how you should run and it can be overwhelming to sort through with all the books, articles, and branded techniques in endless supply. Makes you want to forget about all of it and just cancel your internet service doesn't it? Take a deep breath and let's break down the basics of proper running form. I'm sure many of you can spot your running partners off in the distance just by their form. Everyone is put together a little differently, and everyone has a unique running style. And that's okay. In fact, it's perfectly natural, and understanding that is an important step to knowing how to improve your form while accepting yourself as a runner. I want to go over two key components to help you run more efficiently and give clarity to the complicated and contradictory subject of running mechanics. Let's start where the rubber meets the road with one of the hottest topics in the running community -- foot strike. What type of foot strike should I have is one of the most common questions I hear from people. Forget about that for a second and let's reframe the way we think about this issue. I'm not concerned with what part of your foot you contact the ground with. I'm concerned with where your foot contacts the ground as it relates to the rest of your body. This is the real question you need to ask yourself, and once we get that sorted out the foot strike issue becomes irrelevant. The two are certainly related, and to a degree they can be different methods of addressing the same problem, but I prefer to treat the problem rather than the symptom. If the problem is over striding then a symptom may be how your foot contacts the ground. You want your feet landing under your center of gravity; essentially your feet should land directly underneath your hips. It is possible to have a heel strike and still do this, so let's stay focused on the problem. If your feet are landing out in front of you, your body is in a braking motion until your hips move over the top of your foot. This

By Ryan Warrenburg, ZAP Fitness

is inefficient. It slows you down and increases the stress on your body. We want your hips to be over the top of your foot on contact. This will also increase your number of foot strikes per minute (you're looking for a total number close to 180), improving efficiency. Okay, so feet underneath the hips, got it. What if I'm running uphill or downhill? Interestingly enough, the terrain shouldn't affect the way your feet strike the ground. Hills will change the way you position your body, but not your feet. If you remember back to October I discussed hill training and mentioned how to use uphill running to improve your ability to run with your feet underneath your hips. It's very hard to over stride uphill, but it's very easy to over stride downhill. Even downhill you want to think about your feet striking the ground underneath your hips, and this will require a conscious effort as its

counter to most people's instincts. Doing so makes you a more efficient runner and reduces the high impact of downhill running, especially the quad beating downhills that can ruin a marathon. The key to effective downhill foot strike is your body position. You want to think about leaning with the hill so you are putting your body at a perpendicular angle to the ground. If you're leaning back and hammering on the breaks you're increasing the load on your lower back and slowing yourself down. If you need to slow down, take shorter steps, but avoid leaning back and over striding. Running uphill isn't much different. You want to focus on leaning into the hill from the ankles up making sure you are remaining upright in your torso. Remember, you're not leaning from the waist into the hill, but from the ankles. Leaning over at the waist will restrict the diaphragm and inhibit your ability to utilize the entire lung for respiration, the very thing that will be stressed the most running uphill. Increasing respiration while restricting the diaphragm is not a good combination, so be sure to stay tall up top. To understand proper running posture we need to address two things. The first is similar to hill running in that you want an upright torso, from your hips

through your spine and head. You want to keep your spine in a neutral position with minimal lower back curve. A key cue here is to think about keeping the spine as long as you can. This will keep you tall with your eyes up without over accentuating the curvature in the lower back. Secondly, to find your proper position try standing barefoot on the ground. You want to feel your weight evenly disbursed throughout the foot. If you feel more weight on your heels then drop your sternum forward a hair until you feel even disbursement throughout the foot. This is your proper running posture. These tips take practice and having someone video you will help to understand your foot placement and running posture. I know that thought is horrifying, but I promise you'll survive and be better for it. Focus on these two simple things and take a break from sifting through all the endless information on running technique.

For the Love of Running

The Full Story of a Half I write this column as a proud coach and proud member of my local running community. Lakeland runners have often asked for a half marathon in our fair city and their wishes were finally granted with the Red Ribbon Half Marathon on Nov. 9. The weather was great and the course was tough but the 733 finishers all seemed to really enjoy the event and having it on the streets of our hometown. The race was put on by Inneract Alliance, an organization that provides substance abuse prevention to a three-county region in Florida, as a fundraising event along with their annual Red Ribbon Run for elementary school students. There were a lot of logistical issues that had to be worked out to make the race even come about. “The most difficult part of planning the race was establishing a course that both the city and the police department would agree to,” said Race Director Marc Zimmerman. “Our first few courses were shot down because of certain roads that could not be shut down to traffic for that period of time.” Once the course was finally finalized, the next step was securing enough officers and volunteers for the many intersections and side streets along the course to ensure the safety of the runners. The community came together with volunteers from local churches, Florida Southern College and other local organizations to make sure the course was properly manned.

Once the leaders turned onto the long flat section of Lakeland Highlands Road, it seemed Bataille's plan had worked and he and Mackley broke away from the others. They were both running very relaxed at the 8-mile point of the race, so much so that Mackley

Spectators on the course were spread out and clumped at certain viewing spots and were boisterous in their support of the runners. Many residents along the course sat in chairs on their driveways cheering on the runners, one still in her robe and bedroom slippers. The event was a huge success and feedback was almost overwhelmingly positive. “The only negative things we heard were about the hills on the course,” said Zimmerman. “Most everyone I spoke with loved the race and were thrilled Lakeland finally has a half marathon.” The Race Up Front I can no longer run, but I still get the same thrill from seeing the runners I coach meet or surpass their goals and this was a day filled with just such thrills. For full disclosure, I coach Scott Mackley and Cole Bataille and knew both we were ready for this race. We all knew going into the race that the winner

to the front and the lead pack was formed. They ran together through the first mile in 5:51 before Bataille threw in a surge as they climbed the first hill of the race. As they got back to flat ground on Lake Hollingsworth, the pack reformed and continued together towards the rolling hills of Cleveland Heights Blvd. Cookson started to fall off from the group as they started to climb the hilly section with Bataille once again testing his competitors with another surge to the front. The front four strung out into a line this time until they reached a downhill section and reformed the pack.

took time to tell me a joke as I rode my bike along beside them. As the two leaders turned off the long straight stretch, Mackley began to put some distance between himself and Bataille. This is the part of a race where Mackley can turn off the pain receptors in his brain and gut it out when most people would want to slow down or stop. As Mackley pulled away, Bataille maintained his pace and continued to strengthen his hold on second place over Robida. The top three stayed in that order with Mackley, after only a month of solid training, winning in 1:17:16, Bataille finishing in 2nd in a new half marathon PR of 1:18:44 and Robida finishing strong in 3rd in 1:19:14. Another runner I coach, Eddie Nesmith, also had an outstanding race and finished 6th overall and won the Masters title in 1:23:55. Nesmith is a rock steady runner who can settle into a pace and click off mile after mile. He ran a smart race, not going out too hard and it paid off as he passed several runners in the late miles as the late hills took their toll. It was great to see this race on the streets of Lakeland, great to see the community support it and see my PR Runners do so well.

Meb Keflezighi and the New York Marathon By Roy Stevenson

Sponsored by Skechers Performance Division

skechersperformance.com • Facebook: @SkechersPerformance • Twitter: @skechersGO Instagram: @SkechersPerformance

Whenever the world’s elite marathoners toe the start line alongside popular U.S. runner Meb Keflezighi, they know they’re in for an honest race. In fact, the Skechers Performance sponsored Keflizighi brings new meaning to the word ‘consistent’, with a remarkably homogenous series of marathon times. Consider Meb’s seasons best times since he took up the 26-miler in 2002: 2:12:35 (2002); 2:10:03 (2003); 2:09:53 (2004); 2:09:56 (2005); 2:09:56 (2006); 2:15:09 (2007); 2:09:29 (2009); 2:09:15 (2010); 2:09:13 (2011); 2:09:08 (2012). There are Kenyans who’d give up their racing flats for this staggering string of times! Some distance runners are known for their fast times and their inability to win or place in the “big show”, but Meb proves you can do both and do them well. His performances—starting with Athens Olympic Silver and NYC runner-up in 2004— and followed by none-too-shabby 3rd (NYC, 2005); 3rd (Boston, 2006); 1st (NYC & US Champs, 2009); 5th (Boston, 2010) and 6th (NYC, 2010); 6th (NYC, (2011); 1st (Olympic Trials, 2012) and 4th (London Olympic Games, 2012) indicate that Meb is always a force to be reckoned with. Not bad performances for one of a family of eleven children, who emigrated to the USA from Eritrea to escape war and pursue an education. Now living in San Diego, California, Meb has returned to his hometown but still plans on going back to Mammoth, California for altitude training. Meb continues to cruise through workouts that would cripple most young runners and looks to continue to "Run To Win" to his last race....whenever that may be. Skechers Performance Division signed another endorsement contract in 2012 with Meb. Relatively new to the running shoe market, Skechers Performance is pri-

marily known for their innovative and unusual curved sole that encourages mid-foot strike, versus the standard heel strike. Meb’s NYC victory in 2009 made him the first American to win in 27 years (he was sworn in as a US Citizen in 1998) and now that he has a taste for winning the NYC marathon, he’s eager to repeat his victory. With 2012 Olympic Champion and 2013 World Champion, Ugandan Stephen Kiprotich, committed to running this year’s NYC Marathon, plus super-stars like Boston and NYC record holder Geoffrey Mutai, Chicago runner-up Wesley Korir, and American Ryan Hall, Meb’s going to have to work hard to outpace these guys. But Meb’s solid 4th in last year’s London Olympic marathon indicates he’s still a player. One consistent rule about marathons is that anything can go wrong at any time, even to the favorites. How many times have we seen the pre-race favorite leading by minutes, only to come unglued in the final 1-2 miles, and pull up lame, or be remorselessly passed by a stream of others? If someone is having a bad day, Meb’ll be there, shadowing, watching, and waiting to pounce, with his usual finesse. Meb’s unerring consistency is why he’s still a contender for placing at this years NYC event, and if he pulls out that “big one” that lurks deep inside every marathoner—and all of his spark plugs are firing—he has as much chance of winning as any of the top five seeds. In the last two years, Meb has trained for 6 of the worlds most competitive marathons, when most runners of his caliber average 2 per year. If these miles have not set Meb back, we should expect similar results from Meb in this year's NYC Marathon.

The Athlete’s Kitchen Getting Older, Day by Day Like it or not, every one of us is getting older, day by day. As a runner, you might wonder how aging impacts performance -and what you can do to retain youthful fitness. The following information is gathered from a workshop (www.sportsnutritionworkshop.com) presented by Dr. William Evans, an exercise physiologist and expert on aging, muscles, and protein. The following information can help you chart a healthy course into your future. • The average person loses about one percent of their fitness per year. Aerobic capacity goes down, particularly after age 60. Staying active helps maintain a slighter higher ability to uptake oxygen than a non-athlete, but the rate of loss is the same. • Muscle is an active tissue (as compared to body fat). The more muscle you have, the more calories you can eat without getting fat. Yet, muscle loss creates a subtle change in metabolism that can contribute to weight gain with aging. • We lose muscle as we age, starting as young as age 20, with a steady decline year after year. To treat this age-related loss of muscle, you need to lift weights or do other forms of resistance exercise. Yet, even strong athletes still lose some muscle with aging. • With aging, the average person loses more fast-twitch muscle fibers (used in sprinting) than slow-twitch fibers (used for endurance). This loss starts early in life and explains why elite sprinters peak in the early 20s. In comparison, elite distance runners maintain their slow-twitch muscle fibers until age 40ish. But even top athletes notice they slow down after age 40, at which time the nerves that connect to muscles start to die off, resulting in a loss of both slow- and fast-twitch fibers. Athletes can lose about 20 percent of their muscle fibers between ages 40 and 70. • With age, we not only lose muscle but also tend to gain fat. It's easy to eat more even though we need less. The cause of weight gain is not due to a “slow metabolism.” Metabolic rate remains constant, but daily activity easily declines. A study with obese people suggests they sat three hours more per day than their lean peers; this saved them about 350 calories a day. • Body fat secretes adipokines (hormones) that have negative effects on mus-

cle strength and contributes to increased inflammation, particularly after ages 60 to 70. Inflammation leads to heart disease and diabetes. Hence, fatness can be a powerful predictor of disability in people ages 50 to 75. Stay lean! • When young people gain weight, about one-third of the weight gained is lean muscle. When older people, in particular older women, gain weight, it's all fat. When older people lose weight (due to illness or a low-calorie diet), half of the weight lost is muscle. Hence, yoyo dieters who gain fat and lose muscle are on a downward spiral. Being fat but fit is preferable to going on and off diets. • Muscle loss is the key reason why older people become frail and end up in nursing homes. When they stop exercising, they experience a steep drop in strength. The good news is they can do something about frailty: lift weights! In only12 weeks, 60- to 70-year-old men regained the fitness they had lost over 15 years. • To maintain (but not gain) strength, a person can lift weights just one day a week. Lifting weights does not stress the heart nor increase blood pressure. Aerobic exercise actually causes a greater increase in blood pressure because it uses more muscles and more oxygen, which means the heart has to pump more blood than with strength training. • Even 90-year-olds in a nursing home can triple their strength in 10 weeks. That means they can walk faster, get to the toilet by themselves, be less depressed, and stay in the independent living part of elder-care housing. Tell your parents and grandparents to start a weight lifting program so they can stay out of the nursing home! • How much weight should people lift to build muscle? Three sets; the first two sets should have 8 reps; the final set is to

exhaustion. If you can lift a weight 12 times in the final set, you need to lift heavier weights the next time. Because muscle damage stimulates muscles growth, you want to spend more time lowering the weight than lifting it. • Most strength gains occur in the first three months of starting a lifting program, due to early neuro-muscular changes. The nervous system learns how to recruit muscles more efficiently and this stimulates more muscle cells. o Strength training helps prevent bone loss. In a year-long study with postmenopausal women, all of the women who lifted weights improved their bone health. Those who did not lift weights lost ~2% bone density in one year. Exercise is better than osteoporosis drugs -- plus, you'll get stronger! • By lifting weights and building muscle, older people should be able to eat more calories (which boosts their intake of health-promoting protein, vitamins, minerals). Yet, adding exercise does not always entitle a person to eat more calories. In a study with 62-year-old people who walked briskly for one hour a day (five days/week) for three months, their daily energy expenditure remained stable - despite the brisk walking. How could that be? They became more sedentary the rest of the day; they napped more and slept longer. They compensated for having exercised… • About 25- to 33-percent of people older than 65 years are eating too little protein. This results in loss of muscle and bone -- and leads to expensive medical problems. The goal is to eat at least 0.55 grams of protein per pound of body weight each day to maintain and build muscle. For a 140-pound person, this equates to about 75 grams of protein, or 25 grams per meal (for example, Breakfast: 3 eggs; Lunch: 1 can tuna; Dinner: 4 oz. chicken). The Bottom Line: Stay young by staying active and by lifting weights or doing some type of resistance exercise to strengthen both muscles and bones. And remember the words of gerontologist Water Bortz: “No one really lives long enough to die of old age. We die from accidents and most of all, from disuse.” Use it or lose it!

This Running Life

Volunteers: Marathon Dream Team I remember a dark morning and pouring rain in chilly November, when I hauled myself out of my warm, dry, comfortable bed and headed off to volunteer at the City of Oaks Marathon in Raleigh. For more than eight hours, I worked in an aid station for thousands of freezing, waterlogged runners as they sloshed down the street. It was miserable -- the kind of extreme weather that serves as a bookmark for other races when you are obsessing over running conditions. Anyone who ran in that race or volunteered knows exactly what I am talking about. But days like that are the very ones that make you feel good about volunteering for races, no matter how cold, wet and miserable you are. In my own cold morning races and hot afternoon outings, I have never failed to get an energy infusion from armies of smiling volunteers at water stops, aid stations and the finish line. I know how important volunteers are for the success of any event. They are the unsung heroes, the worker bees, and the cheerleaders. Fortunately, the weather has been great for subsequent City of Oaks Marathons. The 2013 edition could not have been more perfect for the nearly 5,000 runners who sprinted, jogged, galloped, walked, and limped across a finish line under a gorgeous, cloudless blue sky in Raleigh. While the running numbers were impressive for this traditionally small race, the volume of volunteers, at 750, was record-breaking. Race director Ron Wahula could not have been more pleased. “The work of the volunteers is my biggest reward,” he said, three days after the race. Wahula approaches his race with a zest for customer service. “My goal is for every touch point in the race to be a positive one,” he said. From the pre-race expo to the starting horn, throughout the entire race until the final runner has labored across the finish line, Wahula obsesses over every detail. His post-race party included everything he could think of to make it memorable: a live band, a beer garden, and food galore, including pizza, doughnuts, bread, fruit and warm chicken soup. There is at least one race on virtually every weekend in Greater Raleigh, starting with resolution runs on Jan. 1 and ending with midnight runs on December 31. The racing community loves to give back, for they know how it feels to be on the receiving end of a cool drink of water on a hot day, or a Mylar blanket after a chilly

struggling. They stick around until the very last participant crosses the finish line, even if it is long after the race officially ends. Days later, Wahula was planning to publish an ad in the local newspaper that listed every single volunteer. “For some of these young kids, this will be the first time they've ever had their name in the newspaper,” Wahula said. Wahula's goal is to develop the gold standard for volunteer management. In the old days, volunteers were recruited through email and organized on a spreadsheet. Today, technology has streamlined the process, from sign-up to race-day. Volunteers can use the same sign-up system as the runners. Volunteers came from

Tammy Stewart, hauling pizza, makes sure hungry runners are fed during the City of Oaks Marathon finish line party.

“It is all about timing, timing, timing.” Carolyn Quarterman has spent the last three years helping recruit volunteers for races supported by the North Carolina Roadrunners Club. “Some people are always willing hand happy to help,” she said. And high school kids are plentiful and eager. “It's easy to recruit volunteers when you're recruiting from high schools, but volunteers have to be 21 to work as course monitors, so there's always some last minute urgency finding course monitors,” she said. Quarterman also organizes a “Put Hunger on the Run” fundraiser for the local food bank on behalf of the Raleigh Galloway running group. She's in her eighth year and it doesn't get any easier. “We have reached our goal every year, but asking people to give money is even harder than finding volunteers to work as course monitors,” she said. In the final hours of the final day of fundraising, she was less than $100 from reaching the $2,620 goal (the amount is based on marathon miles). We give and we volunteer for many reasons. We volunteer because it is fun. We volunteer so we can be part of the excitement. We volunteer to show off our towns. And we volunteer because we know how much we appreciate a cup of cool water and an encouraging word when we are laboring toward the finish line. For Wahula, it goes deeper than that. “For one thing, volunteers make my job easier,” he says. “And there is also a possibility they'll come back next year and run the race. One of our volunteers last year enjoyed it so much, he came back this year and ran the 10K. Next year he's planning to run the half marathon.” And that's a race director's dream.

Running Through the Bluegrass Monumental Marathon a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Must Doâ&#x20AC;? Like many marathoners, I like to vary which races I run, using them as an excuse for a mini-vacation twice a year. This year I went up to Indianapolis, Indiana for the sixth-annual Monumental Marathon. This fairly new race had about 13,000 people in the full and half this year and it is a not-for-profit race benefiting Indianapolis Public Schools. Many of the participants are, in fact, teachers and staff. Being a public school employee myself, I was inspired by that. Plus, I'm always happier to pay an entry fee that goes to a good cause. First, major kudos to the race organizers for a seamless registration and expo process. The expo was in the massive Indiana Convention Center, but there was ample signage to get us in the right place. Packet pickup was quick and easy, although I personally hate having to walk through the expo first -- but I guess that's the point! The shirts this year were a nice technical fabric, gender-specific cut, although a little busy for my taste. Lots of screen printing makes the shirt stiff and often itchy, so I don't see this one being worn often. (Besides the badge of honor they represent, there's a reason people wear their Boston shirts so often: they fit well and they're comfortable.) We stayed in a La Quinta Inn about a mile from the race start - a perfect distance for warming up for the race. Hotel staffers were incredibly helpful, providing a map with restaurants and a $5 per ride taxi to anywhere downtown. We walked a few blocks to Lorenzo's Ristorante for dinner, a small Italian joint that was predictably full of runners. The arrabiata and ravioli were both good choices. Race morning was easy with an 8 a.m. start and didn't leave the hotel until about 7:30. Dropped my bag at bag check which, unfortunately, was on the other side of the main bank of port-o-johns. This would be my only issue with the starting line area. There could've been port-o-johns along the way where people were coming from their hotels instead of sandwiching them altogether. And, weaving through the toilet lines to get to bag check was a bit of a pain. Bag check, though, was impressively organized. Each bag was hung up in order and workers were friendly and quick. Volunteers with huge signs saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;ASK MEâ&#x20AC;? made things easy, and I was in position in the corral with no problems. Race weather was as close to perfect as

you can get. All week there had been threats of rain, heavy winds and/or cold temperatures. Instead, we got a low of 38, high around 50, winds from the west at 7 mph. Since it's a north-south course, we had a light crosswind for most of the race. The first few miles of the course were tough -- a lot of tight 90-degree turns with everyone still packed in together. If the race directors could find ways to straighten that out a bit, it would alleviate a lot of early congestion. I skipped the first three water stops because it was too complicated to turn the corner, get around all the runners and get a drink. Just before mile 3, you go past the Soldiers' And Sailors' Monument in downtown Indianapolis, built in 1888 and just 21 feet shorter than the Statue of Liberty. It sits in the middle of a circle, and the spectators flanking the sides and up on the monument steps make you feel like you're in a much bigger race. The half-marathon splits off pretty early - just past the 7 mile mark -- and the marathoners stay along the river heading north until about the halfway marker. The Butler University campus and students are a nice distraction around mile 17, followed by a park and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. At 21, we turned east, picking up a slight tailwind for two miles -- no complaints! Just past mile 23, the half and full marathons meet back up. In some races, this becomes a disaster, but the IMM organizers had cones to keep half marathoners in one lane and full marathoners in the other. It did get tight at times -- you could only run two or three across in each lane, so passing other runners was a squeeze. Spectators were ample and loud in the last couple of miles, although there was a 90-degree turn to get to the finish. Again, a tight squeeze, and you couldn't really see the finish until you were practically on top of it. At the finish, they gave out traditional medals (pretty cool, there's a spinning piece

in the middle) and heat sheets, along with toboggans -- knit hats, or whatever people call them in other places. That hat went directly on my head, since the finish was in the shade and 50 degrees isn't quite warm enough to be that sweaty. Finish line food was pretty typical, although they did have chocolate milk and another treat I thought was ideal -- bagel bites. Essentially, they were bagel holes, the perfect size. Picking up my gear check bag was easy; the walk back to the hotel involved a brief stop to sit and put on warm clothes. Race results were posted immediately, too. Indy has a great downtown, so for lunch we walked to the RAM Restaurant and Brewery for burgers and beers. Again, a restaurant full of runners. We're creatures of habit, I suppose. The beer was delicious we had some pumpkin ales and doubleIPAs. That evening we caught a Pacers game -a lot of fun, but try to avoid seats in the balcony section. Getting up and down those stairs wasn't the highlight of my day. Adobo

23

Grill was a fun dinner place, and we wrapped up the evening with a trip to the historical St. Elmo's Steakhouse. The restaurant opened in 1902 and remains in its current location. The restaurant is famous for its shrimp cocktail and also has a prohibition-era themed lounge upstairs. I believe a good race is evidenced by the attention to detail, and this race shines. They offered pace groups starting at the 3hour mark, and even had them for elites trying to crack Olympic Trials times. (The oldest and youngest women's Olympic Trials marathon qualifiers were run there that day by Colleen DeReuck (age 49) and Alana Hadley (age 16).) Instructions were provided for spectators who wanted to bike or drive to see multiple race locations. And, post-race showers were available at a nearby YMCA. All told, this is definitely a race I'd do again. It's a little later in the year - Nov. 1 next year - and Indy is a cool city. The race organizers have definitely made this one a must-do. Tracy Harris is a runner and writer in Louisville, KY. She keeps coming back to the marathon, although some days she's not sure why. A proud member of the Derby City Athletic Club, she races under the DCAC banner and helps train its national title-winning youth cross-country team.

Ultras, 10K, high school cross country highlights Arkansas Traveller 100

By Nicholas Norfolk

Brock Hime won the Arkansas Traveller 100. He's shown with Christy Ferguson, race director.

On October 4-5, the Arkansas RRCA Ultra State Championship took place in the Ouachita National Forest. It featured a duel between Brock Hime and N. Wesley Hunt. Runners experienced changes in conditions that made the already difficult 100-mile race more challenging. The race started out with it being relatively hot and humid, especially for October. Then, the rain came and brought a serious drop in temperature. Of the 120 who started, 77 finished. Brock Hime's persistence and resilience paid off when he came away winning his first attempt at a 100-miler. He had previously won the Bartlett Park Ultras 50K in September and was poised to prove the naysayers wrong who questioned his inexperience. In the end, youth and first-time finishers ruled the top three spots. Hime (18:05:34), Hunt (18:06:42), and Chas Kabanuck (20:18:41) are all 30 and under. Oklahoman Shelley Egili (22:37:59) was the first female followed by Tammy Walther (23:55:00) and last year's winner Sarah Miller (25:02). Although Shelley has done many ultras, this was also her first 100-mile finish. The Arkansas Traveller 100 is directed by Chrissy Ferguson and she is dedicated to putting on a great race. If the government shutdown couldn't stop her, I'm pretty sure nothing will be able to prevent her pursuit of making it a race to always remember. I t's no wonder people return. In the 22 years of the race, there have been numerous who have finished five or more and nearly 20 have completed at least ten. Brian Kuhn finished his tenth in a row while 71-year-old Ian Maddieson finished his seventh to go along with his fifteen Western State finishes. Gearhead Endurance Challenge On the same weekend as the Arkansas Traveller 100, another ultra event was happening in northeastern Arkansas. It was a twist on what's typical for a timed ultra. Runners would run the 2.5 mile loop at Craighead Forest Park every 30 minutes. If someone fin-

race. This year was no different. It should be referred to as a PR fest because year after year many finish with their best times. With over 1,700 participants, it's easily the largest race in Conway. People come from all over the country to experience what one of the best half marathons in the region. The community rallies behind this race. Many supporters and spectators show up to cheer on participants. This is a great race for someone wanting to complete a first half marathon because of the atmosphere that surrounds it. For starters the beneficiary, Soaring Wings Ranch, is a phenomenal cause to support. If I had to describe Soaring Wings Half Marathon in one word, it would be quality. Each participant gets a quality experience from start to finish. The legacy Dustin and Rachel Speer created for the race continues to live on through the current race director, Marla Watson. It's a nice way to spend the end of October. Mark Ferguson (1:16:36) and Leah Thorvilson (1:18:50) were male and female overall winners. Breakaway 10K

ished before, they could relax. If they didn't make the cut-off, they'd wait until the start of the next loop. The overcast day would be good for participants, but the rain eventually had an effect and halted the race for an hour. After the hour was up, the runners started another loop, as if nothing happened. The first-time event had over 100 participants completing multiple distances. Jason Barker, Jeffery Foes, Ted Herget, and Cory McDaniel were the fantastic four who finished 60 miles. Sarah Gamble was the female winner running 42.5 miles. The Gearhead Endurance Challenge was the culmination of a 90-day training program, Project 90. There was no pressure to do any specified distance. The goal was whatever each person individually decided. No DNFs were possible. The organizers, Amanda and Ted Herget, look to make next year's event better. The format was something many hadn't seen and having vendors at the end of each loop gave the participants and spectators something to occupy themselves with during downtime or rest time. Soaring Wings Half Marathon I'm not sure how the race organizers manage to always have the perfect weather for this

(50:08) were the top three female finishers. High School Cross Country State Meet Often forgotten in running circles, is what the next generation is doing. They are training just as hard to make their dreams and goals come true. In the fall, there is cross country, which some of the same standouts can be seen in the spring during track season. The Cross Country State Meet was in a familiar place, Oaklawn Park. This was not a horse race although runners ran with thoroughbred speed and agility. I saw a dozen races, but the race that would have had you on the edge of your seat, had you been sitting down, was in 7A. It was the fastest and closest race all day. Defending State Champion, Jacob Shiohira, representing Bentonville High School, faced off against Brendan Taylor of Little Rock Catholic High School. The cool temperature and the overcast were in everyone's favor. The 5K race started out like every other race that day. The initial sprint to gain position left Shiohira and Taylor leading the pack, which would remain unchanged until the end. Each tested the other with surges throughout the race, but neither made a big move until Taylor unleashed a kick that Shiohira couldn't recover from. It reminded me of stories I've heard and read about when Roger Bannister outkicked John Landy in Vancouver to win the Miracle Mile. As Taylor sprinted to the finish and into the record books, spectators knew they had witnessed something momentous. Both Taylor (15:14.7) and Shiohira (15:18.0) broke Aaron Hamilton's 2007 course record of 15:30.1. A year ago Taylor clocked a 16:18.6 at the same meet. I look forward to seeing what's in the future for these two who pushed each other to the next level and an outstanding finish.

Jana Miller was female winner of the Breakaway 10K in Arkansas.

When a new race happens in Arkansas, more likely than not, it's a 5K. The next most popular distance would be half marathon, which is on par with the rest of the country. But many runners are looking for something in between either as a natural progression or for training purposes. Brian Jones, race director for the Breakaway 10K, saw the need as well. The race was held on Saturday, Nov. 9 at Harding Academy in Searcy. It was the last race in the Searcy Legacy Series. The series began this fall with the Wildcat Road Mile in August, followed by the Micah Rine 5K in October. The winner of the series was determined by those who completed all three races. Jordan Woodson (38:13), Samuel Elander (38:26), and Nathan Hall (42:40) were the top three male finishers. Jana Miller (46:15), Kathryn Riley (47:51), and Rebekah Brock

Brendan Taylor (left) and Jacob Shiohira race to the cross country finish line.

Running Psychology Restructuring Our Thoughts Often in our running lives we encounter challenging or disappointing events. A difficult training run, an injury, periods of low motivation, or a poor race performance all present challenges we must meet, and in some cases, lead us to feelings of disappointment when the challenges are not met to our preconceived standards. But is it really the actual event that leads to disappointment, or is it how we interpret the event? The famous psychologist Albert Ellis felt it's not the event, or as he called it, stimulus, that causes us emotional problems, it's the interpretation of the event that leads to a mental or emotional reaction. Ellis felt that each day it's not really the threats or danger of an event that gets us all nervous and full of anxiety, it's our perception about the event that leads to ineffective emotional responses. For example, spiders terrify some people. Are spiders really that dangerous? A very, very few people are harmed in any way by spiders. It's far more dangerous to be riding in an automobile than being near a spider, so where then does the fear of spiders come from? The fear comes from the things the arachnophobic believes about spiders, not what spiders really do to them. Many times our negative responses in running are not really due to our running, they're due to our belief system. So to change our negative reactions we need to change what we believe. Is it really the end of the world when you don't run well? No. Have you let down all of mankind when you have a poor race? No. If you miss one workout does it mean you're totally lazy? No. All of us sometimes make running into the most important thing on the earth, but is it rational to think that way? Probably not. Sure, running is important to all of us, but should running really cause us to feel sick with anxiety before a race, like a worthless human after a race, or to act like a tyrant around the house when running isn't going the way we would

like? Probably not. Hey, this running stuff is supposed to be fun, remember. We can enjoy our running more and probably run much better if we're not as hard on ourselves and are a little more rational in our thinking. What we really need to do is practice what is called cognitive restructuring, or in other words, change our belief system so we are more rational. Irrational thoughts serve to trigger emotional difficulties that often lead to lower performance and less fun. Probably the easiest way to restructure our thinking is to become aware of our self-talk. We all carry on inner dialogues with ourselves. This self-talk is usually positive or negative and can serve to increase confidence and satisfaction or drain confidence and lead to anxiety and emotional distress. Any negative thought that causes us to interpret something as a threat to our ego can trigger anxiety and emotional upheaval. For example, you're at a race and you begin to question your training for the event. You may say to yourself, “I hope I've done enough long runs, because if I haven't there is no way I'm going to be able tp keep up with Joe.” Such self-talk does nothing but sap confidence and cause anxiety. Too many of us use negative self-talk much of the time, yet are never really aware that we're doing it. Try to become tuned in to your self-talk and work to recognize situations when you often use negative self-talk. Before we can change

negative self-talk, we must become aware of it. Once we become aware of any negative and irrational self-statements, we should begin to work on replacing them with selfstatements that are positive and realistic. All self-talk should be directed at improving your self confidence and maintaining an optimal level of anxiety. So if some self-talk like, “I feel so nervous that I just wish this race would be done so I can go home,” creeps into consciousness, dispute and replace it. Say “STOP” to yourself and substitute a more positive self-statement like, “being nervous means I'm ready to run, so once the race gets started I'll feel really great.” Putting ourselves down with negative selfstatements like, “I just can't run hills, so why bother going to that race on that hilly course” or “a marathon is just too far and there is no way I could ever finish one,” serve only to decrease confidence and can actually keep us from trying new things. All of us could probably use a bit of countering negative self-talk from time to time. Maybe we should have some self-statements like, “I'm not really my best on hills and I don't like that, so I'm going to train more on hills and get better” or “A lot of people finish marathons, so I'm going to set some short term goals to increase my mileage over the next year and I'm going to finish a marathon myself.” We should never let our thinking become our adversary. Our thinking patterns

need to help us be positive, help us overcome difficult situations, and motivate us to be our best. Our self-talk really needs to bring our thinking back to the present moment so that we don't worry so much about the future or get caught up in reliving the past. Instead of seeing problems in every situation, see the possibilities when problems do occur. Out of every running challenge comes an opportunity for running success. We all need to ask ourselves the following questions as we work to improve our thinking and self-talk. Are our thoughts helpful or are they irrational and self-destructive? Do our thoughts help us reach our goals as runners? Do our thoughts increase emotional conflicts within ourselves or do our thoughts help us to feel good and feel the way we want to feel? Changing the way we view our running life can help us to reduce self-imposed pressure and be more adaptable when our training and racing doesn't go quite as planed. The more rational, flexible, and adaptable our thinking is the greater the likelihood is that our running performance will be better and we can grow as runners, and people as well!
