Running Journal • August, 2016

Ultra Running Transcontinental Run Questioned Records are made to be broken. I was told that by Ted Corbitt once, as he encouraged me to break records he had set. We have all heard that adage. Earlier this year a man from England, Robert Young, set out to break the record for a transcontinental run. The old record of 46 days, 8 hours, 36 minutes by Frank Giannino Jr (with its own set of doubters) appears easy to break…. On paper. A number of runners in the Sri Chinmoy 3100 Mile Race have gone further faster. The difficulty lies in covering 60-plus miles on the roads, between here and there up and down hills, coordinating aid, rest, meals and everything else that can occur during more than 40 days on the road. At the 3100 the runners are coddled. They run a .5488 mile loop with a fully stocked aid station always available. If there is something desired and not present, every effort is made to obtain it. But along the roads, some items may not be available for days. Questions were asked about the legitimacy of the record attempt by Young. It appears he was going too fast. Faster than the likes of Kouros, Feges, and many other successful multi-day runners on closed short loop courses. All of this was done while crossing the desert and climbing over mountains. The running community was skeptical. There were those who advocated the run be scrutinized. Back on May 18, I posted on the ultra list (http://listserv.dartmouth.edu/scripts/wa.exe?A0=ULTRA) that I was going to have a look see on my way home from The Great New York Running Exposition (June 18-19). That was not to be. By early June the “need” to check on Mr. Young was considered great by many people. A crowdfunding effort was begun to send a team to observe and report on the effort, and its legitimacy. Somehow, I found myself a member of the Team, Team Geezer, named because of the advanced ages of the team members…. All of us in our 60s, and all with more than 120 years of ultrarunning experience, among us. Gary Cantrell, his wife Sandra, Bill Schultz (a successful transcon runner himself) and I were joined by the youngster, Mike Dobies, a statistician, and handler for Joe Feges in his 580, 606, and 550 mile six day efforts…. The man knows multidays. Early in his run Young had days of 81, a low 50, a high 40 and another low 50 for his first four days. That looked a lot like my first four days at the Last Annual Vol

By Ray Krolewicz

State in 2013. At that point I “crashed” for 14 hours, sleeping 9 _ of them. I got up and finished the run with days close to 50 miles to finish in 6 days 10 hours for 314 miles. At the same point where I crashed, Young's RV got stuck in the sand while he and his crew were cutting across, rather than following the paved road. This is allowable, he would still be running coast to coast, and his route had more than enough mileage required for the record to allow this shortcut. This was the first place where the time spent covering miles came into question. Young “ran” 38 miles in about 4 _ hours, according to their records, while the crew waited for a tow truck to pull them out of the sand. 4 _ hours would be an excellent time for a 60K (37.28 miles) in a supported road race. To run this alone, unsupported, across a desert would be amazing. The run was further suspect as Young claimed he left the tracker in the RV during this run. The RV, and tracker, rejoined Young later,after being pulled from the sand. I do not know what happened. I was not there. Had I been there I do not think I would have left the crew and RV. I would have worked hard to free the vehicle, even while waiting for the tow truck. At that point, exhausted from the time in the sun working to free the RV I might have justified getting back on schedule by riding to where I would have been without the long delay. I am not saying Young and/or his crew did this, but I might have. I know I would not have set out across the desert unaided and alone. I met Young, when I joined the other Geezers in Illinois. He is indeed a likeable and friendly man. (This does not say anything about his running ability, his previous claims, or claims during this run. My objective was to observe and report. I am doing that now. The fact is, however, that he is friendly and welcoming. He converses about a variety of topics, and is somewhat naive about many aspects of running, particularly multi-day running.)


Later that evening I joined Young for a portion of the run. We began by walking. Soon Young began to run. We covered the next mile at about 9 minute pace with him gradually increasing the speed. He asked if he was going too fast and I told him I had a 100 miler coming up and wanted to run closer to the pace for that event. Young then blasted off running the next mile at or around seven minutes, he slowed slightly, got a drink from the RV than began walking shortly afterwards. I plugged along at 10:30 per mile pace, and within a mile we were back together, three miles down the road and walking again. The same behavior was observed for the next several days. The 70 and 80 mile days were gone. There was some fast early running followed by walking and long breaks. Young had sunburned, after three weeks on the road. He was tired, and becoming footsore. Over a six day period he completed 280 miles over relatively flat terrain. This was in stark contrast to his initial “six day totals” of 333, 397, and 461 as reported by his own data. Young expressed concern about not being believed. I told him there were many questions about his data. He claimed people were looking at small sections of data. I agreed that while this was true that there were also people looking at maps and taking point A then point B 10 days later. They were concerned that his 10 day totals were international class, with some sections world class. He stated he would like to run the Sri Chinmoy 10 day race. He said he feels his best talent is in multi-day running. While the Geezers were observing, Jim Barnes arrived. Barnes is a long time ultrarunner and had met and accompanied Young during the transcontinental race a year earlier. Barnes was a supporter of Young. He had come out to run with him and help with the effort. Still, once on the scene he made observations. “My main take away was lack of preparation and knowledge about mult-days by both Rob and his "crew." Also his complete disdain for traffic made me very nervous. As for the cheating, I will wait for the "report."” Barnes believes that Young is talented stating, “I agree about ability and hope he gives a multi-day a try.” The Geezers tried to be impartial and fair. We observed, and unfortunately, what we observed did not match the earlier claims. There was GPS data that was going to “prove” the authenticity of the early days. There were many questions about that data. Ultimately, the run was halted. Young has a small fracture (avulsion) of the small toe on his right foot. Worse was that there was also cellulitis present. Young and his team abandoned the effort shortly after Indianapolis. He has since stated he will run a six-day race. I hope he does, I hope he performs well.

This Running Life Runners Cross the U.S. to Break the Ice on Mental Illness When it comes to talking about mental illness and addiction, all it takes is someone to break the ice to start the conversation. That's what Charlie Engle had in mind when he led his team of ultra marathon runners on a rollicking, 25-day odyssey across the southern states last spring. Pied pipers for sobriety, the team collected more than 6,000 friends on Facebook and 335 followers on Twitter. Engle, who organized the run with fellow ultramarathoner Chris Martin, has no doubt his team touched lives from the west coast to the east. Both men live in Wilmington, N.C. “I know we deeply affected many of those who followed along, and they will be changed forever,” Engle said. “Even though some people we met may still be drinking or using, one day they may seek

counseling. Once you know there is an answer, there is no going back.” Engle and Martin hatched the crosscountry mission a year ago. Both have struggled with demons in the past. Engle's past bouts with drugs and alcohol have been widely documented and reported. Martin has suffered from debilitating depression.

In 2007, Engle ran across the Sahara desert, his run captured in the Matt Damon documentary, “Running the Sahara.” The next year, he attempted to break a world record for running across the United States, but injuries cut his run short. “I was considering trying again, but I have a book coming out and so much going on, I knew I would not be able to put in the time,” he said. But Engle thought he could find time to put together a team and cross the country relay-style. With presenting sponsors, Mental Health America, The Herren Project and Break the Stigma Project on board, he and Martin assembled a dream team to join them on their epic run. “I needed to find four runners who could handle the distance,” he said. “It's no big deal to run a marathon in a day, but to run a marathon for 24 days in a row is difficult. I needed people who wouldn't quit or complain.” Engle and Martin also wanted social media celebrities, runners who have a big following on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and who would post and tweet as they navigated the country's small towns and backroads. Most of the runners they had known for years. Catra Corbett, a colorful and prolific runner, 22 years sober, who brought along her running partner, a plucky dachshund

named TruMan. Corbett, who lives in Fremont, Calif., has completed more than 200 ultra marathons, and recently finished an epic 200-mile run. The dog has completed many distance events, including three 50K runs with a PR of 7 hours and 13 minutes. Pam Rickard, of Roanoke, Va., a recovering alcoholic, 10 years sober, who has run more than 40 marathons and ultra marathons in the last decade. She is director of the Herren Project's THP Runs. David Martin, the author of a book “Out There: A Story of Ultra Recovery,” transformed himself from obese drug addict to sober vegan and is a world-class ultra runner. He is a two time Badwater finisher and owns Snap Fitness in Louisville, Colo. Sophie Kashurba, the youngest runner on the team, is a former collegiate cross country runner at Gettysburg College. She credits running for helping her heal from a pattern of self-harm. She is program director at the Charlotte, N.C. Nonprofit Running Works. The runners left the Santa Monica Pier with great fanfair on Sunday, May 16 and ran for 25 days straight across 11 states until they arrived in Alexandria Va. on June 9 where they spoke at Mental Health America's 2016 Annual Conference. Using two support vehicles, the runners

He Said, She Said How Did You Help Break the Ice? The road between mental illness and mental health recently became a bit shorter and much smoother thanks to a 3100mile, transcontinental journey that six runners embraced and recently completed in June. The Ice Breakers running relay team, comprised of three women and three men, embodied experiences of despair-to-determination, struggle-tostrength, and addiction-to-recovery as they allowed their personal past strife to fuel their feet and start an important conversation. Breaking the ice of tough subject matter can be difficult and daunting. The 'right words' can seem impossible to articulate. On May 16, Catra Corbett, Sophie Kashurba, Pam Rickard, David Clark, Charlie Engle, and Chris Martin allowed their running shoes to do the talking and

initially break the ice to an important national conversation about mental health. I reached out to a couple of the runners this month to learn more about their inspiring cross-country trek and ask, “How did YOU help break the ice?” He (Charlie Engle) Said… “Putting the team together was my job,”

the start. Agreeing to lead the runners from their starting line and out of Los Angeles, Kostman rode his bike as the Ice Breakers ran the first 10 of their 3100 miles together. “Taking those first strides was such an amazing payoff for all of the hard work. I knew we would have some hard times, physically and emotionally, on the road across the country, but I was confident we could get through any challenges we would face,” Engle shared. The team did have challenges. The biggest challenge was quite probably the torn Achilles tendon that team member Martin suffered after being chased by a dog. Martin was directed by a doctor to cease running around Dallas, Texas. Fortunately, it was around that point in the journey that Phil Nimmo had joined the voyage for support. He ultimately filled in for Martin for the remaining miles. The rest of the runners were sprinkled with sore muscles, blisters, and belly concerns, but little more. “I think our health was testament to our solid training plan provided by Bart Yasso, our team coach. Bart made sure that we were mentally and physically ready to run for more than three weeks,” Engle said. It was right at three and a half weeks on June 9 that the Icebreaker team successfully completed the journey that took them across 11 states and landed them at the Mental Health America Annual Conference. There, the runners rested their running shoes, and opened up about mental illness, depression, addiction, suf-

said world-renown ultramarathon runner, Charlie Engle. Of course, that was not his only job. He and fellow Ice Breaker team runner, Chris Martin, conceptualized the run. “Chris Martin and I both live in Wilmington, NC, so we run together often. That means we have way too much time together to dream up new running adventures. Usually that means a marathon or a 24 hour race. But in October 2015, we met to talk about a cross country relay adventure. That was the seed that grew into the Icebreaker Run,” Engle shared. Martin agreed to identify companies that could help fund the project and Engle delved into creating a team of runners, a support team, plotting the course, and handling all of the many related details. With May having the designation as Mental Health Month, the team agreed to meet in California and jointly take the first strides of their 5-million step migration, starting at 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 15. “I have been a part of many long expeditions so I know that logistics are the biggest challenge during preparations. Once we were all together in Santa Monica, I breathed a big sigh of relief,” Engle said. Badwater Race Director, Chris Kostman, knew some shortcuts that would save the team some time and keep them safer from CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Progress and change often leave beloved things in our past, but I feel like it is not time for the Picnic Island Adventure Runs to end. I strongly believe that if more people tried just one, they would be surprised by how much they enjoy it. ning high school cross country. After all, not only is it the last of the reaI have often called Picnic Island sonable adventure runs, it is also the most Adventure Runs the great equalizer as the fun you will have while running! winners are not always the fastest in the field, but rather the strongest. I have Rae Ann Darling Reed runs, coaches, and proven this numerous times when I have writes in Florida. She is an RRCA and finished before many of my own high USATF Level 2 certified coach and part school athletes who normally beat me in of the Brooks Inspire Daily program. 1-mile to 5K races and the many adults Follow RunnerGirl's adventures on twitter who have beaten me in area road races.

I was fortunate this summer to finish as masters winner in May and June, overall winner in July, and overall winner of the series only to find out after the race that due to participation numbers dropping significantly this year they will only hold one race next summer. That unfortunate news was the inspiration for this month's column. (Play the song Video Killed The Radio Star by The Buggles or at least reference the tune in your head while you read the next few lines.) In our minds and in our hearts, can we rewind or have we gone too far? The need for extreme racing came

The Last of the Reasonable Adventure Runs Just like video killed the radio star, extreme racing seems to have taken its toll on my absolute favorite races, the Picnic Island Adventure Runs. This three-race series began in 2003 and consists of one race per month usually in May, June, and July. In 2006 one of my cross country/track athletes ran her first one and finally convinced me to try one in 2008 (thank you Lauren!). I was reluctant but glad I took the chance. I had more fun than ever. The challenging terrain, the competition, the big unknown of what comes next on the course, and the most amazing awards all had me hooked. I try to run all three races every summer but sometimes life gets in the way. I am pretty sure I have run at least one per summer since that first race eight years ago. I have written about these races in the past but here's just a brief description so you have the visual: It is approximately 3.6 miles long with beach running, lots of uneven grass, hills, a couple of very small sections over pavement, three minor obstacles, which vary each race, such as crawling on hands and knees through sand, running through a few big, inflated tubes, a short backwards run, and push ups. The toughest section of the course is through the mangroves. Oh the mangroves! You never know what to expect until you get there. High tide always brings in the deep, warm, muddy water or as I like to call it, the little bit of “ick” factor, especially if you go splashing through and get any on your face. Don't get me wrong, it is challenging but at the same time it is accessible to all runners and walkers from beginners to veteran racers. Another reason to love this race! Families, kids, young, old, serious racers, and recreational fun runners can all toe that sandy starting line and “have the most fun you will have while running!” My cross country and track athletes always laugh when I describe it that way but I know it to be true and they discover that as well once they give it a try. I won't name any of those other races by name, but I just don't see the appeal of those extreme obstacle races where you literally sign away your life and risk injury or death from the dangerous obsta-

cles along the course. They are more about the obstacles than the running. Maybe because I am a runner of 32 years I prefer races that focus mostly on running. The Picnic Island Adventure Runs are safe, fun, off road runs where the terrain challenges you and they throw in a few fun little obstacles that anyone can complete. They are as fun or as competitive as you want them to be. Imagine running as fast as you can out of waist deep water trying to lift your knees, then hitting a soft sandy beach to sprint to the slight uphill finish of a 3.6 mile race. I can still remember how my lungs and legs burned and the uncontrollable smile the very first time I ran Picnic Island; similar, I imagine, to many of our first experiences run-

Learning from the Young Guns Marathon Long Run Hitting the wall. It may be the most well known phrase in all of distance running. One minute you're running along breathing effortlessly, your legs feeling rhythmic and light, feet popping off the pavement with every stride. The next minute your breathing becomes labored, your legs feel heavy as lead, and fatigue courses through your body from head to toe begging you to slow down. There are many factors that can lead runners to hitting some version of “the wall� in a marathon, but there are just as many things you can do to break right through it. When implemented properly the long run may be the most effective weapon that can power you to a strong finish at the end of a marathon. One of the most difficult things to determine when planning your training is how to schedule the long runs. When starting any training plan you should structure your training in 3-week blocks where you have 2 “up� weeks where you run more and 1 “down� week where you run 10-15% less in order to allow for the recovery that will allow you to absorb and adapt to the training. The same model applies to marathon training, and the long run schedule reflects that with longer runs on the “up� weeks and a shorter long run on the “down� weeks. However, in order to make sure you recover well week to week stagger the long runs so that on the down week the long run is 10-15 miles; on the first of the two up weeks it is 15-19 miles; and on the final week of the three week cycle the long run is 18-22 miles. These are wide ranges that are dependent on your individual goals and training background, but you should aim to get in 3-5 runs that are 18 miles or more. As you plan your long runs and the routes, keep the race course in mind. If you are running a hilly marathon do at least 3-4 of your longer runs on a hilly course similar to the race course. If the course is flat, be prepared for that too. Believe it or not, 26.2 miles on flat ground will cause problems if you aren't used to it during your long runs. Likewise, most marathons are run on pavement and while I'm a huge proponent of running on soft surfaces you do need to callous your legs to the pounding you'll experience on race day. Not every run needs to be on pavement, but the majority

By Ryan Warrenburg, ZAP Fitness

of your longer runs should predominately be on the surface you'll be racing on, whether that is pavement or not. There are several things you can do in the execution of long runs to be in the best possible position on race day. The first is very simply starting them slowly. Most people start their long runs too fast and it leads to over exertion, struggling at the end, and even having to cut them short. It's easy to get geared up for the big long run and get in over your head early, but starting too fast can crush you confidence and spiral you into a fatigue cycle that is difficult to recover from. Additionally, going out too fast on race day is the single worst mistake you can make in a marathon and those habits are tough to break if you develop them every week in training. Start the first few miles of your long runs 90-120 seconds/mile slower than your race pace and focus on easing into the run so you finish quicker than the start. There are two different styles of long runs we incorporate at ZAP in our marathon training. The first, and most common, is a long run finishing with pickups. This is a training concept admittedly stolen from Bill Squires, the most successful marathon coach in American history. As an example, over the final hour of a long run you would throw in a 1 or 2-minute pickup every 5-6 minutes. The pace of the pickups isn't critical, but you should be able to resume your normal long run pace immediately after the pickup. If you have to slow down to recover you're doing them too fast. I suggest starting them at marathon effort and moving forward throughout the sequence as you get the feel for them. The pickups serve two critical purposes. From a physiological perspective they improve your ability

to finish fast at the end of a race when you're tired and improve your body's efficiency in burning fuel, a key in avoiding the wall. Additionally, the pickups provide great psychological training as they force you to break up the run and focus on 1-2 minutes at a time. If you can translate that idea to race day and narrow your focus to a few minutes at a time you'll run much stronger over the final stages of marathon. The other type of long run is running significant portions at goal race pace. An example is 2 x 5-6 miles at or a little quicker than marathon pace with an easy 1 mile between each within an 17-22 mile run. Another example is a progressive long run where you finish the final 10-12 miles of an 17-22 mile run starting 1020sec/mile slower than marathon pace and finishing near half marathon pace. Using a half marathon race as a marathon paced long run with a few miles warm-up beforehand works great as well; just run the first 8-10 miles at goal marathon pace before you speed up with a fast finish. These types of runs should be done only 2-3 times during a marathon buildup. When done properly they necessitate a lot of recovery and doing too many will put you on the fast track to over training or injury. If you're ever in doubt dial back the intensity and know the most important thing in avoiding the wall on race day is simply getting the miles in. Some days in marathon training that will be the best you can do, and that's okay. Be purposeful and patient with your long runs and you'll break right through the wall on your way to a strong finish.

Down the Road Are Marathons And Half Marathons Shrinking? When you read the Running USA report or the Wall Street Journal story, showing that running events shrank by an average of 9% last year and so did marathon and half marathons, did you believe it? Or did you go to your database of all the races in your state and pull out the races and see how your state did. I did the later and I hope that there is or will be someone in each state who keeps up with all the races and can do this for their state and send it to Running Journal to perhaps be published. If you think it is easy to keep up with all the races, just ask my wife Kathy who said “Yeah, somebody will be willing to give up half their time every week to track down races? Don't think so.”That is because you have to check all the races in your state on the Running Journal upcoming races list, and then chase down all the obscure unlisted websites - like RaceMine.Com or RaceSplitter.Com or all the small (and some of the large) finish line services in your state. Maybe she is right and nobody will be will-

ing to do it. But maybe one of you in each state will prove her wrong. There were 11 marathons in SC last year. I will say I can't imagine why anyBy one would run a marathon or half Cedric Jaggers marathon that is uncertified since the USATF won't recognize any records set on uncertified courses because those courses might be any distance. So I've put the uncertified races in small case. If my math is correct (and it may not be) there were 4,521 runners who crossed a marathon finish line in the state in 2015 versus 4,588 in 2014. Therefore, marathon participation did decline in South Carolina as it did nationally. So how about Half Marathons you may ask?

If my math is correct, there were 1,573 increased half marathon finishers (up) including new races and 1,973 (down) finishers so South Carolina's 33 half marathon total finisher number decreased by 400 finishers. That's the trend nationally and in South Carolina. Was it true in your state too? I was not joking when I said I hope someone in each state will do the research and the math for their state. I always want races and participation to grow, and as you can see it did not happen in 2015. Will the downward trend continue? Runners will vote with their feet. Will we see you running down the road more or less at races in 2016 and in the future? Cedric Jaggers was elected to the South Carolina Road Runners Hall of Fame in 1992.

Running Through the Bluegrass Being Organized Reduces Stress I'm currently surviving by relying on dry shampoo and McDonald's unsweet tea, and sleeping in my running clothes. I'm four months out from my next marathon and already hitting 60+ mile weeks, running as the sun rises for a minimal relief from the heat. I work full-time and teach Pilates three days a week, plus various writing projects like this column and my blog. One of the biggest hurdles to fitness success is often time - it can be hard to carve that time out into your schedule. My pet peeve is when someone uses “I'm busy” as an excuse. We're all busy. So the question is not IF you have time, but HOW and WHEN. The first step is to become ruthlessly organized, which is not something I can tackle in a running column. But if you haven't read “Getting Things Done,” I highly recommend it. A huge weight lifted off my shoulders when I hired a coach. Mentally, not having to plan my own schedule is huge. I literally don't think about it. I open the Training Peaks app on my phone and there it is. I review the week ahead on Sunday and block off the time on my calendar so I know which days have obliga-

tions that restrict when I can run. I also lay out my clothes for the week on Sunday. People seem surprised by this, but it's really helpful. I include all my undergarments and accessories, too. It saves an incredible amount of time each day. Sunday is also for menu planning and grocery shopping. We tried a meal delivery service for a while, and I loved the convenience but the food itself wasn't great (or enough food for a couple logging a combined 30 hours of exercise per week). On that front, I use Evernote to collect all my recipes and I'll make my shopping list in there. You can link to other notes, so it's real-

ly easy to make a note for the week with links to each recipe along with the shopping list. I also put the meals I'm cooking on my calendar. In the evenings, I pack my breakfast, lunch, and Hammer Recoverite. And really, I literally sleep in my running clothes on a regular basis. Especially this time of year when I just need shorts and a sports bra, why bother with pajamas? Otherwise, if I'm running in the morning, I put my running gear in the bathroom. I also tuck my safety gear, heart rate monitor and keys into my shoes by the door. If I'm doing a workout after work, those clothes are also packed and put in my gym bag. And if I'm getting ready at the gym, my makeup bag and hair stuff goes in now - I've left without my makeup bag many times. And, if I'm getting ready at the gym, I pull one of my outfits from the closet and get that packed. I wasn't kidding about the dry shampoo, either. That stuff is a lifesaver. If I could pull off the look, I'd buzz my head in a heartbeat. It's not the washing that's so time consuming - it's the drying and styling. Cutting that process out saves me 20 minutes a couple of


days a week. Hammer Nutrition also keeps me going. Obviously, their products fuel my workouts gels, bars for an easy breakfast, Recoverite so I bounce back for the next day. But they also make a number of supplements. Tissue Rejuvenator provides natural anti-inflammatories and joint supplements, like turmeric, chondroitin and glucosamine so I can avoid taking NSAIDS. I recently started using their REM Caps because I have a hard time going to sleep early enough during the summer. Key ingredients are melatonin and valerian root extract, which not only help you sleep but have other recovery benefits as well. Having everything prepped in advance ensures I get my workouts in and reduces my stress levels. I've forgotten shoes for work, bottoms for yoga, makeup, etc. It's frustrating and usually both time-consuming and moneyconsuming. In fact, the time I forgot my work shoes, I went to Target to buy some (faster than going home) and my car battery died and I ended up having to wait for AAA anyway. Save yourself the time, stress and AAA calls - plan ahead! The extra time investment upfront pays huge dividends.

Masters Running When Racing Brings You Lemons, Look for the Lemonade! After running competitively for over half a century, including road racing for almost 40 years, I can now look back and muse over some unintended mishaps that for the most part ended well. After all, things don't always go as planned when we race. Sometimes races we have prepared for for months get canceled for reasons beyond our control, like the Naples Half Marathon earlier this year. Or we get injured before or during a race, and are unable to finish. But mostly it's the little things I remember, things that did or could have gone wrong but turned out fine in the end. Like the time when I tripped and fell on my face midway into The Provident Marathon in Philadelphia, in 1979 if I recall correctly. But I was able to quickly get back on my feet, and probably only lost about half a minute. And I finished in first place with a personal record time! Although with a scraped knee, so I was whisked into the medical tent as soon as I had crossed the finish line. Then there were times when trouble was brewing on the race course, impacting every runner and not just me. While attending the 2008 RRCA Convention in Cincinnati, I was running the Flying Pig Half Marathon. There was a full marathon also, and both races started together. But the start had to be delayed by 15 minutes, because of a fire on the course. It was at mile 22 on the marathon course, so beyond having our start postponed, it didn't affect us half marathoners. However, the full marathon course had to be taken around the block where the fire had occurred, which meant that marathon runners completed a little more than 26.2 miles that day. I remember that their times would later be re-calibrated, i.e. a mathematical formula was applied to figure out what their times would have been on the correct distance. That way nobody was cheated out of a Boston qualifying time, if they would normally have qualified. Sometimes it was friends of mine who had mishaps, often by no fault of their own. While running a 10K in North Carolina a few years ago, I saw a friend who was much faster than me whisk by me about half a mile into the race. I remember being quite surprised, since I would expect this friend to be far ahead of me right from the start. So I asked him afterwards how come he was running behind me for the first half mile. Turned out the race had started a few minutes early, so when the gun went off he was at

his car changing shoes! He made a beeline to the starting line and caught up with most of the field. And he still managed to win his age group! For this column, I asked other friends for their stories of minor mishaps. By far the most common, at least among those who answered my inquiry, was forgetting their running shoes. Or maybe bringing the wrong shoes, like John Farrow of Albuquerque, NM, did once. But at least he had brought one right and one left shoe, so he decided to give the race a try even though the shoes were different brands. It didn't go too well though, and he had to drop out after a few hundred yards, with aching knees. But when Helen Bac of Holly Springs, NC, realized on the way to a 5K last year that she had left her running shoes on her front porch at home, she stopped at a Walmart and picked up a pair of $15 Danskins. Not the brand she would normally run in, but they were good enough for her to PR in the race! Then there was a friend of a friend who had to borrow shoes from a volunteer for one day during a three day mountain race, because she had forgotten to bring her own. They were a little too big for her, but got her to her destination that day. Wayne Baker of Garwood, NJ, also forgot his shoes once when running the Belmar Five, a popular summer race at the New Jersey Shore. He decided to run the race barefoot, but his calves didn't feel right for several days afterwards. Shoes are not the only essential that we need in order to finish with an official time, and maybe with an award. It's equally important that we wear our race number when we toe the line, and these days also a timing chip. I almost forgot to pick up my chip at one race, but remembered five minutes before the start! I had just enough time to dash to the table to pick up my chip and tie it to my shoe before the gun went off.

And Susan Wingate of Fanwood, NJ, almost forgot to put her race number on once. It was a 5K right before Christmas, and a friend of hers showed up dressed as an elf. Upon seeing him, six feet tall, in green tights and a jester cap, she laughed so hard that she left her number in her car! But luckily she remembered to put it on right before the race started. Sometimes the turnaround could be in the wrong spot, or it is not marked clearly so the leaders run right past it. Or maybe it's a turn that they miss. The latter happened in the 1985 Charlotte Marathon in North Carolina, when the first three or four guys missed a turn, and had to turn around later and retrace their steps. The order of finish may have been slightly different if the first few guys didn't miss that turn. And when the turnaround was not marked clearly for the leaders in the 5K accompanying a Half Marathon in Fredericksburg, VA, one year, the leaders went right past it. After they finally did turn around, the front runner was so fast that he passed everyone on the way back and still won the race! So, with so much that can go wrong during races, it seems amazing that most of the time everything still goes right. Maybe we didn't run the time we had expected or hoped for, and maybe the weather was too hot, too cold, too wet, or too windy. But usually there are no unexpected curveballs, and we finish. We can reduce the likelihood even more that things will go haywire, by taking a few simple actions. Some fall upon us runners, others primarily on race directors and volunteers. First, we can make a checklist of what we need to bring to a race, and double check before we leave the house or hotel in the morning: Do I have my running shoes? My watch? My chip and race number? What about shorts and other clothing, gel packs (for longer races), and sunglasses? Then we can hope that all turns will be clearly marked - or study the course beforehand and not lead the race (easy if you are slow like me, maybe not so if you are a five minute miler!). We can usually assume that the race will not start before the announced time, but best to show up at the starting line a few minutes early just in case. Also, make sure we leave enough time for the potty line. Although nobody has told me they were on the potty when the starting gun went off, I am sure this has happened to some runners. There's a downside though in making

race preparations an exercise in precision and organization. We won't have anything to laugh about later, when we look back on years of running and racing! So maybe it isn't that bad after all if we forget our running shoes every once in a while. Especially not if we end up running a personal best in a pair of new shoes, bought cheaply and on the fly!

GO! Mile One Lap, One Mile, One Fast Little Race By Kelly “K2” Richards RRCA At-Large Director, ROADIE and 3 X GO! Mile Competitor The Road Runners Club of America added the mile to the slate of National Championship races in support of the Bring Back the Mile (America's Distance) movement. For three years running, the GO! Mile presented by go! Running ®, has been the RRCA National 1 Mile Championship. A one mile race held in June in Little Rock is guaranteed to be hot, fast and fun! How hot? A steamy and sunny 80° by 7:00 AM hot. How fast is fast you ask? Six Arkansas State Age Group Records were set and the men's winning time was 4:21.49 while the women's winner set an AG state record in 4:43.28. In other words, don't run over to the porta-pottie or you'll miss the finish fast! What about the fun? For me, it's any time I'm not running because I'm a marathoner and running a mile is way harder than it is fun, but I have three favorite race heats (there are seven heats total) listed in the order they take place. 1) The First Mile, this heat is for novices and beginners. For most participants it's their first race and therefore their first mile. Everyone finishes feeling accomplished. I thought it was fantastic that race sponsor CHI St. Vincent had over 70 employees participate in the First Mile. Erin Taylor, co-owner of go! Running ®, has run the First Mile with her father, John McCarthy who was in his eighties, the past three years. John passed away suddenly last fall. This year, Erin, all four of her children and some special friends ran the First Mile together in honor or John.

Women’s Running Grandmas Marathon Celebrates #40 As is usual at this time of year I have my report on Grandmas Marathon and all of the magnificence of this event. This year I volunteered for two weeks in the office and really got totally immersed in every aspect of the weekend of events. Grandmas Marathon and Duluth, MN, will always hold a special place in my heart, as my husband Steve finished his first marathon there in 1994 and broke four hours in the heat and humidity. This year I thought we might have snow as the first three days of race week the temperature never reached 50 degrees. But Mother Nature put on her usual show, and race day dawned very sunny, hot, and humid. The people of Duluth wait all winter and spring for a day like race day, but unfortunately the conditions were not ideal for a marathon. But leave it to the organizers in Duluth, as the events went on and were filled with fun, excitement, and slow times for most of the marathon field. The weather did little to dampen the spirits of those present to cele-

brate the 40th running. The staff and volunteers exhibited their incredible dedication as every one of the 15 aid stations had fluids, ice, sponges and lots of cheering and support. The black flag came out about two hours into the race and the majority of the elite field avoided the worst conditions, but runners listened and slowed down with the worsening conditions. So although times were very slow, there were very few serious medical issues. The weekend started on Thursday when the race expo opened that afternoon.


out hard and won by over a minute, but her 2:33:29 was well short of her 2013 record of 2:26:32. Nick Arciniaga of Flagstaff, AZ, finished as the first American in sixth place. American women duly impressed the spectators taking third through eighth places, led by Clara Santucci of Dilliner, PA and anchored by our own Esther Atkins of Blowing Rock, NC. The day just begins with the races as both Friday and Saturday nights there is entertainment under the big top. The crowds were incredible for Saturday night as many runners danced the night away. I suspect the Friday crowd was huge also but I must admit I was in bed for my early wake up. As I have stated many times in the past, Grandmas is a must for any runners bucket list. Nobody does it better. Granted they have yet to figure out how to control Mother Nature, but I have yet to find a race director who can do that. Shane Bauer, in his debut as executive race director, did not disappoint. I watched him and the rest of his staff work nearly 24/7 race week and the results proved that the folks at Grandmas know how to do it best. They are a cohesive, committed group supported by an outstanding board of directors and volunteers that have no rival. They have more loyal spon-

Business was brisk and the expo area was filled with runners shopping for various items. The Expo continued on Friday along with a host of activities including guest speakers and the ever popular pasta dinner. The new William A. Irvin 5K course debuted at 6 pm and took the participants on a scenic tour of the waterfront. Everyone loved the new course. Buses began loading early race morning for the Garry Bjorklund Half and Grandmas Marathon. Marathon participants had the opportunity to ride the train to the start in addition to the buses. That was a real treat. Getting the elite runners to the start I realized that it would be a tough day. I was sweating just walking to the start. But two former winners prevailed in the muggy conditions. 2015 winner Kenyan Elisha Barno pulled away from a pack of four late in the race to repeat in 2:11:26. Despite the conditions Barno's time was less than a minute slower than 2015. Course record holder, Kenyan Sarah Kiptoo went CONTINUED ON PAGE 18


Distance Memories The Third Rule - and Running by the Numbers Running, like most any sport is governed by numbers. Miles, kilometers, meters … hours, minutes, seconds … heart rates, BMI, stride length … how far or how short … how fast or how slow … whatever it is, numbers rule the sport of running. And like any sport, running has its fair share of numerical rules and axioms. For example: • When you begin running, limit your weekly mileage increases to no more than 10% a week. For example, if you start out running 20 miles a week, you should target no more than 22 miles the second week, 24 miles the third week, etc. • You can proficiently run race pace for a distance equal to three times the length of your average daily run. For example if you're running 20 miles a week your daily average is three miles, so you can successfully run a race of nine miles. • Run three consecutive months of 60 to 70 miles a week to build up a sufficient mileage base to complete a marathon. (This is an axiom to the rule immediately above.) • Multiply your 10K race time by 4.55 to get your project marathon time (assuming

By Scott Ludwig

you adhered to the axiom immediately above). (Another way to predict your marathon time is by using the formula for Yasso 800's, which states your time in minutes and seconds for a workout of 10 times 800 meters -two laps of the track--with equal recovery time is the same as the hours and minutes of your marathon time.) • Target an even split for both halves of a marathon, but you should realistically expect to run five to seven minutes slower for the second half. • Expect to lose 1% of your speed every year after you reach 40 years of age.

OK, so far you veterans haven't learned one single thing. Everything you read from this point forward is specifically for you. It's called Ludwig's Third Rule and it goes something like this: Once you reach the age of 60 expect all of the numbers you remember from your prime to be adjusted by one third. Brace yourself, old-timers because things are about to get real, it not downright ugly. Here goes: • If you ran 36-minute 10K's in your prime, once you become a sexagenarian you'll need to give it everything you've got to run 6.2-miles in 48 minutes, or one third (12 minutes) slower. • If you ran three-hour marathons in your prime expect you should now expect to run a marathon in four hours, or one third (one hour) longer. • If you ran 90-mile weeks in your prime, 60 miles a week (one third less) will require the same amount of effort once you turn 60. It will also take you the same amount of time it took to run 90 miles in your prime. (See entry immediately below) • If you remember what a 7:45/mile train-

ing pace in your prime felt like at the time, now a 10:20/mile pace will feel the same. I told you it was going to be ugly; real ugly. One last thing: If you're still going (reasonably) strong once you turn 60, you're well on your way to living a long life. In all probability you can expect to live to be well over 80, which if nothing else will prove one thing: Ludwig's Third Rule might not apply to age. Let's hope not. Can I get an Amen?

took turns, each running legs of specific lengths. Every day, 24 hours a day, a runner was pounding the pavement as the group slowly caravanned across the country. When Phil Nimmo, who is friends with Corbett, joined the team for two or three days for fun. A twist of serendipity changed his plans. Chris Martin had suffered an injury, ending his journey. Engle was resourceful. “I was bummed for Chris,” he said. “But I looked at Phil and asked him 'What are you doing for the next few weeks?'” And just like that, Nimmo went from being a companion to a teammate. He ran Martin's legs like a champ and helped the team finish the run. Martin rejoined the group at the finish in Virginia. For Engle, the run was full of many gifts, but the greatest gift of all was the opportunity to see the United States in slow motion, averaging 6 mph. “We weren't in a hurry. We couldn't go any faster,” he said. “Traveling like that forces your to slow down and appreciate the view.” To read a minute-by-minute account of the Icebreaker, visit Facebook. www.facebook.com/icebreakerrun2016

fering and hope. “The Ice Breaker Run 2016 is over but the conversation has just begun,” Engle said. She (Pam Rickard) Said… “It was our job to just show up, stay open, tell the truth and trust the process. Simple. Not easy, but simple,” 54-year old ultra runner and Ice Breaker team member, Pam Rickard said. Rickard, who is also a recovering alcoholic with more than 10 years of sobriety, said the run was the perfect training ground for her to “practice what she preaches.” “Day one was a clean slate, so I was very purposeful in making sure I paid attention to my thoughts, words and actions as we went along. I often advise people to 'trust the process,' 'do the next right thing,' 'savor being uncomfortable,' etc, so I really tried to apply those things to my experience,” she said. After she and her teammates ran the first miles together, Rickard was the first team member to run solo. Each team member was partnered with another runner for five to seven-hour shifts throughout the three-week run. Splitting the time equally with their partners, runners covered about 23 miles per day. Rickard said that the final stretch, from Richmond to Alexandria, VA, was her favorite part of the whole experience. The team ran 2mile legs at a time, and covered 100 miles in about 17 hours. Rickard said that the running was the easiest part of the adventure for her. The relentless nature of the day-to-day schedule was the most challenging aspect of her journey. “Small price to pay for the many rewards of the experience,” she said. The largest reward for Rickard was what she also considers to be her greatest accomplishment. While she began running at Ohio University in 1981, and has more than 40 combined marathons and ultras to her running credit, Rickard says the opportunity to use running to share the power of recovery is her biggest honor. The Ice Breaker Run allowed her and her teammates to do just that - before, during, and now, still weeks after their successful completion of the cross-country relay. Highly active with The Herren Project, Rickard said the team's goal was the same mission that guides the work of the non-profit that helps those suffering from addiction -- 'Help one person, one family at a time. That's how anything grows.' While the team traveled across coun-

Some had struggled with addiction or depression while others were battling Bipolar disorder or PTSD. The team spoke to groups in communities along the way, and were grateful for the hospitality and fellowship they received from the Salvation Army in New Mexico, a YMCA in South Carolina, a church in North Carolina, a hotel in Virginia, and many more. The team's crew was also an invaluable part of the journey. The crew drove a van and stayed within three miles of the runners during their shifts at all times. “Our crew was exceptional and crucial to our success in every way,” Rickard said. The successful steps that concluded the team's run, took the group immediately to the open of the four-day MHA Annual Conference where the runners ran onto the stage of the main ballroom to share about their experience and what they learned along the way. Rickard's reflection was truly touching. “I'm still a work in progress, but I'm stronger and more teachable than ever after sharing the Icebreaker Run experience with these people and many others. I feel filthy rich and I want to give it away.” Publisher’s note: For more on the Ice Breaker, see “This Running Life”by Teri Saylor on page 4.

Runners Beat the Heat at AJC Peachtree Road Race ATLANTA, GA - Sun, heat and humidity ruled the 2016 AJC Peachtree Road Race. Participants and spectators of the world’s largest 10K welcomed the summer conditions on Independence Day after last year’s rainy skies. The second annual Peachtree Cup was awarded to the top overall male and female. The men’s elite race ended with an exciting finish between three competitors. Gabriel Geay (Tanzania) narrowly beat out Daniel Salel (Kenya), who crossed the finish line first in the 2015 Peachtree Cup team competition. Geay finished in 28:48.50 ahead of Salel’s 28:48.65. Kenya’s Philip Langat was not far behind with a time of 28:51.40. “I’m very happy to win this race,” said Geay. “I didn’t know when I won, because those two Kenyans are very strong. But I knew I had good speed.” For the women, two runners pulled away from the pack early in the race and dominated for the entire course. Edna Kiplagat (Kenya) controlled the pace with Ethiopia’s Buze Diriba right behind, until Kiplagat made her move just before mile five. Kiplagat added to her lead before finishing in 32:24; Diriba crossed the line at 32:28. “I am happy today because I have tried three times to win this race and I didn’t make it, but today I made it,” said Kiplagat. For the second year in a row, the Kilometer Kids Charity Chase matched up our nation’s military branches in a two-part competition. In partnership with United Military Care, Team Air Force, Team Army, Team Coast Guard, Team Marine Corps and Team Navy competed for bragging rights in two areas: The fastest military branch and the team that receives the most donations for Atlanta Track Club’s Kilometer Kids youth running program through an online fundraiser. Team Air Force crossed the line first with a commanding lead to win the footrace portion of the Kilometer Kids Charity Chase. Captain Richard Elmore finished first for his team in 37:15. Team Air Force’s cumulative time was 5:09:11. At last check, Team Marine Corps was in the lead for the online fundraising portion of the Kilometer Kids Charity Chase with 33% of the donations. All proceeds will go towards expanding the reach and accessibility of the Kilometer Kids program in Metro Atlanta as part of a continued effort to encourage young people to achieve health and fitness through running. A portion of the funds raised through the 2015 Kilometer Kids Charity Chase were used to establish a Kilometer Kids program at Fort Benning, the first to be established on a military base. The Fort

The Athlete’s Kitchen


Weight and Protein: Hot Topics at the ACSM Annual Meeting The American College of Sports Medicine (www.ACSM.org) is the world's largest organization of sports medicine and exercise science professionals. At ACSM's annual meeting in Boston (May, 2016), over 6,800 exercise scientists, sports dietitians, physicians, and health professionals gathered to share their research. Here are a few highlights related to the hot topics of weight management and dietary protein. Weight management • Do we actually know what drives the obesity epidemic: Is food intake too high? Or does body fatness reduce the desire to exercise? We have much to learn about this delicate balance. • Hunger, that irritating feeling that motivates you to eat, is related to muscularity (but not to body fatness). Muscular runners and triathletes have more hunger than their less-muscular peers and they need more fuel. Hence, if you love to eat (and be lean), lifting weights could be a helpful addition to your training program! • We each have hundreds of types of microbes in our gut that help with digestion. The microbe profile of people with obesity differs from that of lean runners. In mice, we know that obese mice absorb more calories from their food than do their lean counterparts. When the gut microbes of obese mice are transplanted into lean mice, the lean mice start to gain weight. The bottom line: eat a diet that makes for a healthy and slimming gut microbiome: fiber-rich fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grain foods. • Body fatness is strongly linked to sleep deprivation. In a weight reduction study with 123 overfat adults, those who slept the most lost more weight than those who were sleep deprived. In another study with 77 overfat men, a third of them had undiagnosed sleep apnea. They lost less weight than those who slept well. Clearly, sleep is an essential part of a weight management program. If you sleep poorly and struggle to lose weight, you might want to find out if undiagnosed sleep apnea is part of the problem. • Eating the majority of your calories in the earlier part of the day helps to maintain leanness. In a 20-week study with 420 people, the subjects who ate a late lunch lost less weight than those who ate an earlier lunch. Why does meal timing matter if you eat the same amount of calories, only at different times? Diet-induced thermogenesis (the amount of energy needed to digest and assimilate a meal, generally 7% to 10% of calories consumed) is lower at night. Circadian rhythms that drive hunger are also stronger at night compared to morning. Try to frontload your calories? • Should athletes in treatment for eating disorders be allowed to exercise? Traditionally, the answer has been no. Current research indicates no adverse effects, as long as the person is medically stable. Yoga, lifting weights, and aerobic exercise (30 minute limit) have been shown to be beneficial in terms of greater muscle mass and weight gain, with fewer disordered eating symptoms. Yes, exercise can be helpful for runners with eating disorders-as long as exercise is moderate and accompanied by adequate fuel. Protein • Protein is a positive addition to a weight management program. One reason, it is satiating (helps keep you feeling fed). Another reason, it helps to curb loss of muscle. (When deprived of fuel, the body breaks down muscles for energy.) The less muscle you have, the fewer calories you burn.


Don’t let nutrition be your

• Despite popular belief, high protein diets are unlikely to harm your health (if you are healthy). Extra protein does not cause kidney failure, nor does it cause bone loss. Yet, diets high in animal protein can be filled with unhealthy fats, as well as be harmful to the environment. Moderation… • Eating extra protein is NOT the key to building muscle. The key is to lift heavier and heavier weights (progressive resistance exercise). Surprisingly, marathoners and body builders have similar protein needs per pound of body weight. • Runners should pay attention to not only how much protein they eat but also to when they eat it. Research with 20 grams of protein taken 4 times a day (80 g/day) shows better muscle protein synthesis than 10 grams taken 8 times a day, or 40 grams taken twice a day. Hence runners want to target about 20 grams of protein every 3 to 4 hours at breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack & dinner. • Protein needs are based on body weight (not percent of calories). While the total daily need is about 0.5 to 0.75 grams protein per pound (1.2-1.7 g pro/kg), a suggested distribution is 0.12-0.14 grams of protein per pound of body weight per meal (0.25-0.3 g pro/kg). For a 150-pound (68 kg) runner, this comes to about 20 grams protein per meal. For a 120-pound (55 kg) runner, the dose is about 15 g protein/meal. A 200pound athlete (90 kg) needs about 25 g protein/meal. Most athletes eat more than this; the extra protein does not build bigger muscles. • Dieters, serious runners, and masters athletes (who want to reduce muscle loss associated with aging) can benefit from another 40 grams of protein before bed. Extra bedtime protein reduces overnight muscle breakdown and enhances overnight muscle growth. Cottage cheese, anyone? • The “anabolic window of opportunity” (optimal time to eat protein after a workout to build muscle) is longer than initially thought. After a weight-lifting session, the muscles are in building-mode for the next two days. In comparison, the best time for refueling depleted muscle glycogen is within the first hour or two after exercise. Your best recovery bet is to enjoy a post-exercise carb-protein combination that both builds and refuels muscles. Eggs and toast? Chicken and rice? Chocolate milk?

Running Psychology Your Training Ecosystem When most runners think about “training,” they immediately think about getting their running shoes on and going out for a run. But is running all there is to training for runners? Of course there is more to training than simply going out every day and running. Flexibility, weight training, nutrition, recovery, etc. are all parts of any sound training program. However, if we examine any training program closely, we will find there is much, much more to any training program than the aforementioned list of activities. All runners live in their own individual world, or in other words, ecosystem. Each of us is different and each and every one of us live in our own individual environment. We all must interact with our environment in our own very unique way. We are all part of a training ecosystem. So to really take a close look at training, we must look beyond specific activities that are designed to build endurance, speed, strength, and flexibility. To get the absolute most out of training and racing we need to learn to integrate all aspects of our ecosystems into our training. Training must be viewed as a total integration of body, mind, and environment. Training is all about putting stress on the body that the body is not accustomed to, and then allowing the body to adapt to the stress overload with some form of reduced stress or recovery. Too little stress and there is a less than optimal training effect. Too much stress and the body breaks down with chronic fatigue and exhaustion. So being over trained is really about too much stress and too little recovery. When discussing training for runners, we too often only think about the stress overload coming in the form of running. One of the cardinal rules of exercise physiology is that “training is specific” and to train to run you must spend the greatest percentage of your training time running. However, there are many other aspects to our own personal ecosystems that impact energy levels, stress, training status, and ultimately race performance. Our running ecosystem will probably consist of things like training load, sleep, relaxation, work, diet, weather conditions, illness etc., but we need to look at our entire ecosystem to understand how our running is impacted by the total environ-

ment in which we live. Most people today don't have a lot of physical stressors in their lives, such as manual labor or long treks across the countryside to find food. Technology has eliminated many jobs that once depended upon physical labor and many things such as food are not even given a thought. Most of the stressors we face today are psychosocial in that they come from our own inner thoughts and our interactions with other people. Sociocultural stressors that drain physical and mental energy might be things like time pressures at work and home, negative personal relationships, financial concerns and demands of employers. Psychological stressors like worry, fear of failure, self-concept concerns brought on by media and even the pressure to perform in races can also result in energy drain. How are the above psychosocial pressures a part of your running training? The ability to physically adapt to the training we do and raise our fitness levels is based upon how much energy we have to expend on the actual physiological process of running, and how much energy we can save while recovering to aid in our adaptation to the training stress. With adequate energy we can run hard and then have the ability to recover, thereby getting the desired training effect from our running. In a perfect running ecosystem, bouts of hard training are broken by days of lower intensity training and the body is allowed to recover and adapt. Too bad that most of us have much more to do on a daily basis than just run, eat, and rest. We have to function in our own individual ecosystem and that means jobs, family, school, interpersonal relationships etc., and all of these take significant energy, and in many cases we simply don't have enough energy to go around. The result is that we don't get to train as hard as we would like and

www.running.net on top of that, we don't recover well from the training we do. The end product of all of this is a less than optimal training effect and sometimes chronic fatigue. It's not that we're training too hard or not training properly, it's just that the other demands in our ecosystem result in energy drains and we are under rested and under recovered for the training we actually do. We may feel tired and exhausted on a regular basis, but it's probably not from actually running too much or too hard, it's from under recovery. If you're feeling worn out, don't just look at your running as the cause; also look at your entire personal ecosystem. Training encompasses far more than simply going out and running every day. In the past when you haven't been running well, were there other things going on in your life that negatively affected your running? Job stress, personal problems, poor sleep habits or illnesses are all things that can sabotage even the most well planned training program. All can be insidious in how they affect us, both physically and mentally. While many events in our personal ecosystems are hard to control, others can be improved upon. Diet is one area that is directly under your control. More sleep is always a help to runners, so work to manage your time better during the day and you may actually be able to get 30 minutes more sleep a night. Also, while it is a challenge, work on becoming a better stress manager. Try not to get stressed over things you can't control and also work to change your interpretation of events so fewer and fewer things get you wound up and stressed out. Be positive and treat yourself like you would treat your own best friend! The energy you save from not being under constant stress is energy you can put to running and recovery! So when you map out a long-term training program, look at your entire training ecosystem and examine the entire “picture.” By understanding areas of your life that drain mental and physical energy you will be better able to conserve more energy for running and other activities you really like to participate in. A small investment of time in looking at training and your overall lifestyle can pay big dividends down the road.

WOMEN’S RUNNING CONTINUED FROM PAGE 11 sors than most races and the city demonstrates a friendliness that is never seen elsewhere. People all along the course put out hoses, sprays, impromptu water, and first aid stations on the entire course. Oranges, bananas, and strawberries were available. Even Elvis and the Jolly Rancher complete with candy populated the course. There were entertainers and cheerleaders to keep you going to the ultimate prize of a great finishers shirt and a very awesome heavy medal. Plus this year you could complete the challenge to do the 5K and either the half or full. All events sold out in December. A group of Deb Voiles Run Tampa made the trip with 65 strong after Deb had heard me extolling the virtues of Grandmas at ZAP Fitness a couple of years ago. They joked afterwards that only south Florida folks could look like northerners on Clearwater Beach in the spring, as they traveled to near the Canadian border to get sunburned. They had a great trip! I want to congratulate Grandmas on making the 40th birthday party the best marathon yet. On a personal note the staff made my life a lot brighter with a huge bouquet of flowers and the promise (pending city approval) of a brick with my Steve's name on it in a memorial brickyard to be placed near the finish. Steve will be there long after the rest of us join him. My sincerest thanks and love to the staff, the board, the volunteers, the sponsors and the city of Duluth for a world-class event with true small town charm. Plan to be there on June 17, 2017.

“We Run The South”



Benning program launched last fall and more than doubled in size for its spring season. Donations will be accepted through July 31, 2016 at charitychaseforkids.org. Tatyana McFadden’s victory in the Shepherd Center Wheelchair Division of the AJC Peachtree Road Race earned her the title of the winningest women in the division. The Clarksville, Maryland resident finished first at Peachtree for the sixth time in 23:14. “It was definitely a busy weekend. There’s not much time between [Paralympic] Trials and this race, but I wouldn’t miss it for the world,” said McFadden, who was named to the Paralympic Team yesterday after winning six events. “I’m really glad to come down and it’s a great way to celebrate the Fourth.” Josh George (Champaign, IL) claimed his first wheelchair division win at Peachtree in what was his 10th time competing in the race (20:19). “It feels great. The past few years I finished second or third, so to finally get the win, it’s a pretty big one for me,” said George. The 2016 AJC Peachtree Road Race finisher’s T-shirt was a blue cotton-poly blend courtesy of Mizuno. A public vote chose Shay Harbaugh’s “Heart & Sole” as this year’s T-shirt design, which was inspired by three words: pride, heart and soul. “With every step the runners take in the race, they are putting their heart and soul into getting closer to the finish line,” Harbaugh explained.

Running Fitness Defining Your Milestones As an author of 3 popular vegan books that have kept me on the lecture circuit since 2011, the book I dreamed about writing since my teens finally is about to be published in August, “Vegan Fitness for Mortals.” Many great vegan fitness books have been written, but they are mostly by men who do ultras or triathlons. I wanted to write a book that would cater to the average person like me, who after eliminating life-threatening conditions through a vegan diet, was looking for direction in how to begin and sustain a fitness program and “finish without injury.” This book, more than any of my others, has been the result of a lifetime labor of love. I undertook this effort decades ago, knowing that somehow my health outcome would be very different from my family's. They shaped who I've become and the choices I've made. Sadly, their misfortunes have been my classroom. My parents' and sisters' diseases and suffering instructed me how not to live and to search far outside the box for answers. One of the toughest decisions for an author is who to choose to write the foreword. I was deeply humbled when the leading authority in vegan body building, and two-time champion bodybuilder, Robert Cheeke, agreed to write mine. He literally wrote the book on the topic called, “Vegan Bodybuilding,” and has a website by the same name. Anytime I get the “where do you get protein,” question, I send people to his website which shows what the largest animals on the planet know…muscles build just fine on plant protein. It's always better when somebody else writes about what you do. Robert writes: “I have known Ellen Jaffe Jones for more than half a decade, and I can't think of another vegan athlete who has competed in sports more times than she has. It seems that every weekend she's either running a 5K race or out on a book tour spreading the message of vegan fitness. Of course, there are weekends when she's doing both--running a 5K in the morning and giving a lecture in the afternoon, as well as signing books throughout the day. The reason I mention Ellen's consistent effort is because leading by example is one of the most powerful teaching tools and the best way to model what you advocate. Ellen writes passionately about vegan fitness, but she also lives the vegan fitness lifestyle, walking her talk, or in her case, running her talk, to the tune of a new victory (for herself as a runner--and

By Ellen Jaffe Jones

“Ellen's evolution from a junk-food meat eater to a vegan coach, best-selling author, and champion vegan athlete is inspiration enough to embrace this book, but more than that, the insights she offers will help you become your personal best too. We're all searching for the key to happiness. While Ellen can show you how to exercise and what to eat, ultimately you have to find your own compelling reasons to make positive changes in your life. Will becoming fit, having more energy, reducing your risk of common degenerative diseases, and improving your overall health make you happier? Probably--but you won't know until you try. Ellen's wisdom and advice will help you discover what great things you're capable of when you believe in yourself.


As Ellen always says: 'If you want to be more fit, you have to incorporate more movement into your daily life. Adopting a vegan diet is part of the arsenal you can employ to make movement easier. And once your body is in motion, it's more likely to stay in motion!' This speaks volumes to the power of a healthy vegan diet combined with exercise. Her information and tips will be your guide to becoming as close to immortal as you can," Cheeke said. Ellen Jaffe Jones is a certified personal trainer, running coach and frequent speaker at US health an food festivals. Her 4th book, Vegan Fitness for Mortals, will be out in August.


for animals) every weekend. “Vegan Fitness for Mortals acknowledges the athlete inside each of us, regardless of our age, background, health, physical limitations, or experience in sports. Movement is the foundation of exercise and of being athletic. We move to stay fit, to keep up with our kids or grandkids, to keep ourselves healthy and strong, and to enjoy activities such as hiking that we may not even consider to be forms of exercise. She appeals to everyday people: men and women, young and old, athletes and couch potatoes. I have more than two decades of experience as a vegan athlete, with multiple championships in both bodybuilding and endurance running, and I continue to learn from Ellen as a fitness role model. “Even accomplished, longtime vegan athletes will find this book a helpful resource because we all have room to grow and learn something new. Ellen includes beginner, intermediate, and advanced variations for a wide array of exercise programs and a range of athletic levels, making this book ideal not only for individuals but also for couples, families, and groups.

2) The Elite heat because this is when the super speedy runners' race and it's just plain cool to watch a human body move that fast. 3) The Mini-Mile for Kids. I absolutely love the enthusiasm and joy the little kids run with. Allen Eke, a New Jersey native and recent graduate of Oklahoma understands being a Sooner means you get there first so he won. In 4:21.49! Compared to some of the close finishes in past years, he solidly beat second-place Christian Brewer by almost a full second. Not to be outdone or outrun, farm girl to NCAA national champion Razorback Jessica Kamilos took just 4:43.28 to become the RRCA National 1 Mile champion. She won by over 30 seconds, setting an Arkansas state record for females 20-24. Following the race and all weekend long, racers are encouraged to explore downtown Little Rock and the surrounding areas where they can receive discounts and free items at over 30 venues by showing their Victory Lap wristband. Participating businesses included museums, microbreweries, restaurants, bike shops, and more. I've raced in every U.S. state and the Victory Lap is hands down one of the best race schwag items I have ever received. In the roughly thirty hours I was in Little Rock I managed to make it to: Skinny Js restaurant, Core Brewing Co., Rebel Kettle Brewing and Big Orange. It's safe to say I consumed far more calories than I burned. Just doing my part to support those that support running! I'd like to acknowledge Gary and Erin Taylor for putting on a fantastic run. I thank them, Arkansas RRCA State Representative David Meroney and the whole Arkansas running community for making me feel welcomed while in Little Rock. I say it every time I'm in-state but it's true, the Arkansas running community is really special.
