Running Through the Bluegrass A ‘Data Junkie’ and How the Info is Useful This morning, 58.9 percent of me was water. My resting heart rate was 57. And I averaged 184 steps per minute on my run. Fitness tracking and wearables are a huge market, and you might even have a device on your wish list. Pretty likely when I mentioned resting HR, you thought about checking yours on the device on your wrist. I’m a data junkie, so I have a Garmin Forerunner 35 and plus a Garmin Index Smart Scale. So what the heck do all these numbers mean, and which ones matter? I talked to two guys, both named Matt, and who both know what they’re talking about. Matt Ebersole is the coach of Personal Best Training, based in Indianapolis but with clients across the country. He’s been coaching for 25 years, and works with runners of all levels, from 6-hour marathoners to Olympic Trials Qualifiers. He also has the dubious distinction of being my coach. I also talked to Matt Fitzgerald, author of “How Bad Do You Want It,” “80/20 Running,” and a bunch of others. "I believe that many of the health and fitness metrics that runners are now able to monitor with wearables, apps, and other technologies CAN be useful,” Fitzgerald said, "Whether they actually ARE useful depends on how they are used." Resting Heart Rate: If you wear a FitBit or other activity tracker, you probably have this data. If you record it frequently, it can be a great tool. An uptick in your resting heart rate can indicate you’re not fully recovered, or that you’re overtraining. “But as with most numbers, people don’t pay attention to it until something is wrong,” Ebersole said. Similarly, Fitzgerald said his favorite app for monitoring training stress and recovery status is HRV4, which measures heart rate variability. The app uses the camera on your phone to measure your heart rate, so no sensors or straps needed. (Current generation phones include both a camera and a light emitting diode, which can be used for reflection based bio-optical imaging. The technique is called photoplethysmography, or PPG.) "What distinguishes it from similar offerings is that it is supported by reliable guidance on how to use the information you're gathering about your body in order to train more effectively,” Fitzgerald said. Iron levels: Ebersole said knowing your iron levels, both ferritin and hemocrit, is really useful especially for female runners. Again, you need baseline data to make the most of this. “I have some women who train well at 3540, but some who are over 100,” Ebersole

By Tracy Green

said. “It makes me wonder what those women could do if they were at a hundred, too, though.” This wide range points to the need to get your levels checked when things are going well — during a recovery phase, for example. Then, if you’re feeling run down in a period of heavy training, a check of your iron levels can be compared to past data. “Ideally, we’d track that every two weeks or once a month,” he said. Obviously that’s not feasible for most people, but worthy of routine checking. Cadence: Measured in steps per minute, cadence is a way to measure the efficiency of your form. But before we say anything else about it, know this: any changes to your cadence should come from strength training and stretching — not by just trying to take more steps. While it varies by person and pace, around 180 steps per minute is a general target. More and more running watches track cadence, but it’s also pretty easy to do with just a timer. For 30 seconds, count the number of steps you take on one foot, multiply by 4. If you’re bored on the treadmill, that’s a great place to check your cadence, and you can see how it increases as higher speeds. Ebersole said a dip in cadence can be a predictor of injury, because it can show a runner is slipping back into old habits. Fewer steps per minute is typically an indicator of overstriding, and also increases impact forces on your legs and decreases forward momentum. Fitzgerald is more cautious. "Research has consistently shown that virtually any attempt to increase or decrease one's cadence from what is natural worsens running economy. That's because runners naturally adopt the cadence that is most efficient for them.” But, cadence can change beneficially — "but it has to happen naturally as part of the subtle stride evolution that unfolds as runners keep running.” If you’re really interested in understanding

biomechanics and injury prevention, pick up a copy of Jay Dicharry’s “Anatomy for Runners.” It’s the one my physical therapist uses in her work, and it has a place on my nightstand. Sleep: I know I should get 8-9 hours of sleep per night, but if I don’t use an alarm that shows how many hours I have until it’s time to wake up, I won’t get enough. Same for having it logged via my Garmin. It just takes staying up a little later and getting up a little earlier and suddenly it’s Saturday long run day and I’ve had 6 hours of sleep the two nights before. For me, sleep tracking is a reliable way I can make sure I’m logging enough hours. It can also point to issues you might be having, like if you wake up frequently. Remember, sleep is when your body recovers from training and that fitness gains are made. If you’re not sleeping adequately, your training may be for naught. Sleep deficit can also weaken your immune system. Two things that don’t matter at all: — Pace on easy days. Ebersole said some runners focus on this as a measure of fitness, the faster you can run on easy days, the more fit you are. He recommends using heart rate as a key indicator for easy days and not worrying about pace at all. — GPS and the Strava effect. To some extent, this phenomenon has existed as long as we’ve had any sort of watch. “I’ve even found myself doing this coming back from knee surgery,” Ebersole said. “I look down at my watch and feel like I have to speed up or I’m going to kill my average pace.”

EAT WELL, RUN WELL

Carbohydrates: Yes? No? Friend? Foe? Don’t let Ever since I stopped eating carbs, I’ve been feeling so much better. The keto-diet works fine for me. It keeps me from having cookie binges! I tried giving up carbs and my workouts tanked. I had no energy and felt horrible. Runner’ opinions about carbohydrates range from evil to essential. Some anti-carb runners rave about how great they feel; others complain about weakness and fatigue. Abundant research supports eating a sports diet based on grains, fruits and vegetables—the wholesome kinds of sugars and starches that feed the brain and fuel the muscles during track workouts and hard runs. If anti-carb anecdotes leave you wondering what’s best for your sports diet, keep reading. Why would anyone choose a very low carb ketogenic diet? In a ketogenic diet, about 70% of the calories are from fat and only 5% from carbohydrate. (Think drinking olive oil and eating lots of butter, not eating lots of protein) This very low carb/moderate protein diet trains the body to burn dietary-and body-fat, and produces ketones (by-products of fat metabolism) that can be used for fuel. Speaking at the 2016 annual meeting of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics (AND), Jeff Volek PhD of The Ohio State University noted that a keto-diet has been used for many years in clinical situations, such as epilepsy to control seizures, obesity to lose weight, and diabetes to control blood sugar. Some runners are now experimenting with ketosis, as a means to enhance endurance. Eating a keto-diet forces the body to burn more fat. This enables an endurance runner to consume less fuel (gels, sport drinks, gummi bears, etc.) during exercise and potentially enhance endurance if the exercise is very low intensity (such as an ultra-run as opposed to a 10K. This also reduces the risk of creating intestinal distress. An alternate way to improve performance and resolve undesired pit stops is to meet with a sports nutritionist who is a registered dietitian (RD) who can assess your diet, create a winning food strategy, and help you figure out what causes intestinal distress in the first place. You can likely resolve the issue without resorting to a tough-to-maintain keto-diet. Why do some runners say they feel better when they stop eating bread, cereal and other grains/carbohydrates? When runners rave about how much better they feel after having made any dramatic dietary change (such as cutting out grains), I ask, “What were you eating before you made this change?” Inevitably, the answer is The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.), with skipped meals, abundant fast foods, and more junk-snacks than high-quality meals. No wonder they feel better; they are eating better. Other reasons for “feeling so much better” after giving up grains might relate to food sensitivities. When you cut out a whole food group, you eliminate a lot of foods. Likely just a few of the foods created feelings of un-wellness. An RD can help you reach the same level of “feeling great” by working with you to figure out which foods contributed to the sensitivity. Maybe cutting back on just onions and garlic could have done the job. Easier than ketosis! Some runners who rave about their ketogenic diet see the diet as a way to curb their “addiction” to sugar. A high fat diet curbs hunger, and simultaneously curbs cravings for sweets. An easier way to reduce sugar cravings is to prevent extreme hunger. Despite popular belief, sugar binges are unlikely due to sugar addiction but rather to the physiological effects of hunger. Again, an RD can help athletes resolve cravings for sugar without resorting to ketosis. Ketones vs. carbs: What does the sports nutrition science say? A recent study with elite race walkers showed that a ketogenic diet is associated with the ability to burn very high rates of fat at high exercise intensities (1). However, the downside is that burning fat requires more oxygen. Speaking at the A.N.D.

nutrition be your By Nancy Clark, M.S., R.D.

conference, exercise physiologist John Hawley PhD, Head of the Centre for Exercise & Nutrition at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research (MMIHR) in Melbourne, Australia, commented that keto-athletes become less efficient and less powerful. They needed more oxygen to move at a given speed. The research indicated a sustained keto-carb diet impaired competitive performance, despite an intense training program that improved 10-km race-walking performance by about 5% to 7% in the carbohydrate-consuming control group. Instead of totally eliminating carbs, Hawley and his coresearcher Louise Burke, Head of Sports Nutrition at the Australian Institute of Sport and Chair in Sports Nutrition at MMIHR, suggest athletes limit carbohydrate intake around specific training sessions, so they train with low carbohydrate stores a few times a week to gain a metabolic fat-burning advantage, but still train well-fueled most of the time to support high quality workouts. To train depleted, runners could, for example, workout hard in the evening, limit their carb intake afterwards (eat chicken and a spinach salad with lots of dressing for dinner), and then train again the next morning on empty. (Note: this is not fun, but it does boost mental toughness!) Training in a carb-depleted state in that second workout triggers beneficial metabolic adaptations that can help improve sports performance. The Bottom Line Eliminating carbs eliminates a lot of nutrients that invest in overall good health. It also limits your ability to “eat from the same pot” as your friends and family. It can strain relationships and interfere with quality of life. Yet, each competitive athlete is unique in terms of what works for his or her body and mind. One sports diet does not fit everyone and some say they are content in ketosis. I cringe when runners report they have eliminated carbs because they are addicted to sugar or believe that carbs are fattening. If you have a poor relationship with carbs, you want to meet with a sports dietitian who can help you find peace with grains. This professional can help you create a fueling program that you will want to enjoy for the rest of your life. To find your local sports nutritionist, use the referral network at www.SCANdpg.org. While ketosis may seem like a fascinating nutritional adventure, in the long run, don’t you think, from time to time, you’d really prefer to enjoy some birthday cake and/or beer with your friends?

After the Run Record-Setting Running 7-7-7 On January 29th, 42-year old American marathoner and ultramarathoner, Michael Wardian, set a new world record for running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 consecutive days when he won the 2017 World Marathon Challenge. His average time was a jaw-dropping 2:45:57, completing all seven marathons in less than three hours. Chile's Silvana Camelio was this year's women's champion, averaging a 4:12:37. Rewind to January 29th of 2016, and 36year old American marathon runner, Becca Pizzi claimed the women's World Marathon Challenge title. Completing the event in 6 days 18 hours and 38 minutes, Pizzi set the world record for fastest female time. She also became the first American female to run 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days. Her average of 3:55:11 set another world record for fastest cumulative marathon time for a female - a record she continues to hold following this year's event. “I worked very hard last year to raise the bar as high as I could,” Pizzi said. "A torn groin prevented Pizzi from finishing the final two marathons of the 2016 event as strong and as fast as she had wanted (they were her only two to exceed 4 hours), but Pizzi said she “can't complain.” “I'm very proud to continue to hold the title, and I could not have done it without such an incredibly well organized race director (Richard Donovan) and the love and support from my friends, family and my number one fan, my daughter Taylor,” Pizzi said. Staying with family tradition, Taylor, now 10, ran her first 5k race with her mom on Mother's Day in 2014. Pizzi ran her first race at a hometown event with her father, when she was about the same age. “My dad was always a runner,” Pizzi said. “He is my role model and I am so lucky to have him supporting my crazy dreams.” While Pizzi's father inspired her to start running when she was just six years old, it was her daughter, who (in large part) inspired her to run the World Marathon Challenge. “It was my goal to show Taylor that you can do anything you put your mind to when you believe in yourself. She saw me firsthand working very hard to achieve my goals,” Pizzi shared. Pizzi's training consisted of running 70 to 100 miles each week, participating in

By Mary Marcia Brown

yoga for runners classes, and incorporating cross-fit training and personal training into her weekly fitness regimen. Prior to the World Marathon Challenge, Pizzi had run 45 marathons in weather that ranged from -2 degrees in New Hampshire, to 92 degrees in Hawaii. Stepping up to the starting line in Union Glacier, Antarctica, Pizzi felt that she had a solid base of training miles and exposure to the varied elements, to successfully tackle the feat of fitness, endurance, and fortitude. “I knew from day one in my training that I would need to get real comfortable being uncomfortable as that is what I would be facing throughout the week,” Pizzi said. Not only did she face it, she crushed it, winning every leg of the female competition in marathons that spanned from Antarctica to Sydney, Australia, with Punta Arenas (South America), Miami (North America), Madrid (Europe), Marrakech (Africa) and Dubai (Asia) in between. “The highs of this race were very high and the lows were low,” Pizzi said. “I stepped off the plane and immediately felt so fortunate to be running a marathon on a glacier. There are no words, it was incredible!” Pizzi said of one of the immediate 'highs' of the event. It was in Antarctica that Pizzi made a commitment to herself - “finishing this race was not an option,” she said. She really had to work to hold onto that commitment when she reached Australia. “I was at the lowest point of my race in the seventh marathon. I felt a stabbing pain coming out of my groin as if a knife was sticking out of my leg. I was four hours from making history. I heard a quote from Tom Brady where he said, 'I did not come this far just to come this far.' It replayed in my mind over and over. I felt as if the world rallied for me. Everyone came together and supported me and I did not want to let anyone down,” Pizzi remembered.

She had no need to be concerned with disappointment. Her boyfriend-turnedfiance' held the finish line tape as she ran to her victorious finish, making friends, family, fans, and her Sponsors (who helped her with the event's $36,000 entry fee) very proud. After the event, Pizzi got to throw out the first pitch at Fenway Park (where she then got engaged). A 5K race in her hometown of Belmont, Massachusetts was named after her - “The Becca Pizzi Family Fun Run,” and she teamed up with Belmont Savings Bank and Belmont Boosters to help benefit the Becca Pizzi Foundation, which grants scholarships to two graduating seniors from her alma mater, Mars Hill College. The ice cream shop she manages, Moozys Ice Cream, also named a flavor after her - “Becca 7.” She was welcomed back to her hometown with her very own parade, and the town declared February 4th (with proclamation from the State House) as “Becca Pizzi Day.” One may think that a day that bears her name would be her favorite, but Pizzi has

Becca Pizzi, World Marathon record-holder.

another pick. When asked if she would be running the Boston Marathon for the 17th time this year, Pizzi answered with assurance, “It's my favorite day of the year.” In addition to Boston, Pizzi is currently on a 50 states marathon journey, and is 27 states in. Louisianna and Texas are on her radar for the first quarter of the year, and the world has yet to see what the rest of the year will hold. For now, Pizzi holds onto her cherished memories of the World Marathon Challenge, just as she continues to hold onto the fastest cumulative marathon time record. If the record is ever broken (and even if it is not) Pizzi has definitive plans when it comes to the World Marathon Challenge in the future. “I will run this race again,” she said and as a fan, I look forward to it.

Running Journal • March, 2017

Inspired Daily Inspiration Is All Around Us Last month I posed the question “is it possible to literally be inspired daily?” This month, I am more sure than ever of my answer after reading the December 2016 and January 2017 issues of Running Journal. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to cycle once a week. After missing six weeks of running last fall I discovered I need some extra cardiovascular work without the pounding. I committed to one cycling session at the gym each week in addition to strength training twice a week and running five days a week to prepare for Boston 2017. I just cannot listen to music or watch television while I work out so I read Running Journal, which makes the time on the bike just fly by. I found particular inspiration from Tracy Green’s “Run Smart, Run Hard, Good Things Will Happen” (January 2017) and Cedric Jaggers “Nobody Needs A Paper Running Log – Unless You Run” (December 2016).

By Rae Ann Darling Reed

Tracy’s article was both inspirational and exciting. From her preparation to the detailed race report, I almost felt like I was there. I could feel the excitement as she took us through each stage of the race and could definitely relate to her experience of having such a great race despite the fact that my times are significantly slower than hers. But it isn’t the times that mattered for our shared experience. I got off the bike that Friday with a renewed excitement for my own training and rac-

www.running.net ing. The take aways: Tracy stuck to her training despite long hours at work, early mornings, late evenings, and fatigue. She was prepared. Consistency is what got her there. She also stuck to her race plan and her body knew what to do even when her Garmin failed her mid race. We need to know what our pace feels like and cannot always rely on technology to tell us. Good lessons for all of us no matter our speed. The title of Cedric’s article made me laugh but then as I read the entire article I realized he is absolutely right! I have referred to my old training logs more times than I can count over the years. I wish I had kept better records when I was younger as there are many gaps of missing data, unfortunately. But as technology has made it easier to record running data, I must admit I have gotten lazy and rarely write any of it down anymore. A lot of my running friends don’t even think twice about it. You finish a run, get in your car to drive home, and before you arrive, your Garmin has already transferred your run data to the app on your phone which you can also access on your computer. Why write any of it down? This technology saves us so much time. I even add notes to my runs on Garmin Connect so I am still getting the extra data like how I felt, weather, nutrition, etc.

But what if that data did get lost? I know I would be very upset because I often refer back to historical data for both my training and racing. I look for patterns when injuries or aches and pains flare up, refer back to great workouts that really seemed to give me that extra edge, review splits from past races when creating a plan for my next race, and often find inspiration from great workouts and races. The take away (and this one is obvious) — keep a paper running log. For the past two years I have used the “Believe” journal by Lauren Fleshman and Roisin McGettigan-Dumas. I did well writing in it regularly the first year but got lazy the second year. This year I bought the new “Compete” journal, also by Lauren and Ro, in hopes it would inspire me during my Boston training after a tough fall 2016 missing so much training due to injuries. Now I just need to start using it! And since last month I mentioned my three cross country and track athletes preparing for the February 5th Sarasota Music Half Marathon, I will share a quick update on my daily source of inspiration, “my kids!” All three completed their first half marathons with great success. Alison finished in 1:49:59 and Raquel in 1:50:22, running together for most of the race. Chris took home second place in his age group with a 1:44:35. They all had fun while getting in the longest run of their pre-season conditioning for track season. They will have to wait until track season is over, but all three have expressed an interest in running another half marathon and setting a new PR. I would like to thank Tracy, Cedric, and all of my fellow Running Journal columnists for supplying me and the rest of the southeast with inspirational, useful, and entertaining stories month after month. Inspiration is all around us, you just have to look. Rae Ann Darling Reed runs, coaches, and writes in Florida.

Running Psychology

Coping with Race Cancellations

Growing as a Runner

In January, I ran the Naples Half Marathon, here in my hometown of Naples, FL. A well staged production on a flat and fast course, with plenty of volunteers as pacers and at water stops. The race also offered high quality T-shirts, beautiful medals to all finishers, and age group awards that matched the medals. And there was plenty of food at the finish, even free beer! Successful races like this year's Naples Half don't happen by themselves. They all require a lot of effort and planning, not only on race day but also during the preceding weeks and months. And I'm sure the same effort that went into this year's race was also spent last year. But then a cold front crossed our area just hours before race time, bringing with it thunderstorms, heavy rain and high winds. In its wake there were fallen trees and power lines, and standing water on the race course. So the race director and city officials had no choice but to cancel the event. We were aware ahead of time that the storms were coming. However, as late as the night before the organizers still figured the event could be held, possibly with an hour's postponement. Early on race morning this was still the belief, and it was not until about an hour before the original race time, after the storm had passed and left damage in its wake, that the race was cancelled. A bummer for many, myself included, and definitely for those who had traveled from afar to participate. But necessary under the prevailing circumstances. And as far as I know, a vast majority of runners understood this. The 2016 Naples Half Marathon is not the only race that was forced to cancel in recent years due to inclement weather or other issues. Just this month (January 2017) I have heard of several race cancellations, including the Disney Half Marathon in Orlando, FL. Here too a band of strong thunderstorms that made it unsafe to run were the culprit. The decision to cancel was made the night before the race, and Disney offered several options to compensate runners who had entered the half. One of those options was to switch to the full marathon the following day, and this became the choice for some. And since Disney offers several race combinations during their weekend, each with a unique name and medal, and all including the half marathon, many opted to run the 13.1 mile course on their own after the storm clouds had cleared. So, we cope. After I was unable to run the Naples Half last year, I looked for another half marathon nearby to enter. After all, I was not going to let all that training that I had done go to waste! I found the Sarasota Music Half Marathon which was held a few weeks later. And here I was also able to

meet a friend and fellow runner, and have breakfast with her after the race. I have been running road races for four decades now, and race cancellations or interruptions used to be very rare. However in recent years they seem to have become more frequent. There are several possible reasons for this, among them that there are more races, that word of a cancellation spreads more easily (think social media!), or that the weather is changing. Most likely it's a combination of all, although it seems the weather is a common culprit. There's snow, ice, thunderstorms, and tornado threats. Occasionally also heat, as was the case in the 2007 Chicago Marathon. Ice storms are a common spoiler, forcing the cancellation of this year's Mississippi Blues Marathon and Half Marathon, and also several races in the interior southeast during a December weekend in 2013. Betsy Boudreaux of Terrytown, LA, had driven with her husband Aaron to the 2013 St Jude Marathon in Memphis, TN, eager to run. But the race was cancelled in the last minute due to icy and dangerous conditions on the course. The couple drove back and found a half marathon near their hometown the next day, where they let Betsy jump right in and run. Like me last year, she didn't want all her training to go to waste. And she ended up running a personal best that day, in a cold and driving rain! But it isn't just runners that are inconvenienced when a race has to be cancelled. Race directors often find themselves in a tough spot also. It's never easy to judge whether it's safe or not to hold a race when the weather is “iffy”, nor is it to determine when to make the final “go/no go” call. With all the effort and expense it takes to put up a race, and with participants who in some cases travel a long way to run, no race director wants to cancel unless it is absolutely necessary for the safety of runners, contractors and volunteers. Also, some runners may not realize that often it's not the race committee, but municipalities and law enforcement who make the call to cancel. Still, it is usually the race director who gets the “blame” when a race cannot be held as planned, especially when the weather doesn't get as ugly as forecasted

Much has been written recently in popular psychology on what has been termed growth mindset. Having a growth mindset really means you feel that with time, persistence, and hard work, you can achieve your goals. With a growth mindset you don't believe there is some type of limit on how you can perform. Even if failure or setbacks occur, with a growth mindset you understand that such things are a part of the normal process of reaching your goals and achieving success. The road to success is not usually a smooth one and a growth mindset allows you to learn from your mistakes and failures and continue to work and improve your running. In stark contrast is a fixed mindset where you view your running ability as limited and poor performances as a way of confirming your limited ability. A fixed mindset simply doesn't allow you to progress and improve as a runner. It's pretty obvious that those runners that have a growth mindset perform better and enjoy their running more. In any aspect of life setbacks and failures are inevitable and running is certainly no different. A poor race, periods of sub-par training, a string of nagging injuries or just plain lack of motivation can disappoint you and make you question your ability and future as a runner. It's not about never failing or facing difficulties, it's more about how you react to these failures and challenges. When times get tough, do you shrink back and give up, or do you look at what happened, learn from the experience, and then push forward into the future? Hopefully you push forward and grow as a runner. Much is written concerning the issue of genetic talent and sports performance. While genetics and innate ability can never be ignored in running, having a growth mindset can carry you far in running and actually help you perform better than someone with more “talent.” In her famous book, “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success,” Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, talked a lot about her research and how in educational settings having a growth mindset resulted in better academic performance for many students even though their intelligence test scores would not have predicted high academic performance. It seems that those individuals who genuinely believe they can improve themselves and their performance are far more likely to actually improve. It's their growth mindset that allows them to overcome limitations and get better. If you have a growth mindset you understand to reach challenging goals you must push your limits and sometimes pushing your limits can mean

some failures. But a growth mindset means challenges don't create a fear of failure. Failure is looked upon as a normal stepping stone on the slippery road to success and failures provide a challenge to come up with new strategies and motivations to meet and overcome the failures in the future. So a poor performance in a race can actually cause you to work harder and smarter in training, plus a poor performance can cause you to take a closer look at your overall training plan. With a growth mindset a poor performance can make you much better in the future. Having a growth mindset in running doesn't mean you will become an Olympian or be on the European track circuit next summer. Many people may say a growth mindset is just another example of feel good, positive psychology, and that you can't make chicken salad out of chicken feathers. Yes, there are genetic determinants to many things in life and running most certainly is no exception. However, just be honest and ask yourself the question, “can I be a better runner with the proper psychological attitude and proper training plan that I work hard at?” In my heart I believe you will answer yes to the above question. Far, far too many runners limit themselves by their thinking! It really doesn't matter if you are a 2:06 marathoner or a 25 minute 5K runner, you can improve! The key is to believe you really can improve and that you act on the belief. As a runner don't ever limit yourself and above all don't let anyone else limit you. Constantly remind yourself that you never really know just how good you can be as a runner unless you have a growth mindset and go after it. Maybe you won't be the next Galen Rupp, but maybe you will run new personal bests, complete races you never thought possible and even enjoy running even more. Having a growth mindset may require some real effort, especially if you tend to lean on the side of a fixed mindset, but developing a more growth oriented mindset can be achieved with patience and practice. First, try to think about the

Women’s Running Turning 40 In The South This Spring After working for two weeks last June at the 40th Grandmas Marathon, I realized that some of my favorite races in the south are reaching that milestone this year. For years my favorite 10K has been the Rose City 10K in Thomasville, GA. Not only will the 40th edition take place this April, but Jim and Carolyn Story have been the race directors for all 40 years. I suspect that must be a rare record and they do this as their love. From the silver age group award cups, to the medals, to the hot dogs and Little Debbie cakes, to the post race picnic, to the dj getting you up their "heartbreak hill," this race remains the best value in running and a great deal for $20 including a finisher's medal and gorgeous tee shirt. Both the Cooper River Bridge Run and Reedy River turn 40 this spring and both of these events are well run and give you unique views of South Carolina. Thus three events turn 40 in the month of April. This also has to be a very rare occurrence as it is unusual for races to continue to flourish for 40 years. Although there have been many changes for the race over 40 years, the Gasparilla Distance Classic turns 40 in February. Gasparilla was for many years the first stop on the winter running circuit. Held in the Tampa Bay area, the weather is usually a welcome change for our northern neighbors. In addition to the 40 year old 15K, there is a half marathon and a 5K now, and a beautiful run along the water. The crown jewel Gate River Run 15K, which is the largest 15K in the United States, also turns 40 this year, and again serves as the national championship for the 23rd year. This is an unprecedented record and the folks at Gate are proud to host the national championship every year. Over 20,000 runners descend on Jacksonville for this classic. The Gate River Run is one of the best run races on the planet and draws the best elite, professional runners to Jacksonville to compete for $65,000 and a national title. Gate has a equalizer component where the elite ladies start six minutes before the elite men and it often becomes a battle to the finish to see if the female winner can hold off the male winner. Having ridden on the ladies press truck for a number of years I cannot begin to convey the excitement as the runners crest the green monster Hart Bridge and begin a fast forward to the finish line. I sit anxiously in the press truck looking for signs of the men approaching.

By Carolyn Mather, RN, PhD.

In the past few years the female/male battle has been epic. Richard Fannin is the consummate running geek and he begins recruiting fast runners almost the day after the race finishes. He goes far and wide to seek the up and coming runners and the tried and true. He manages to lure over 160 runners to Jacksonville (with no appearance money) to compete for the top 10 money spots and top three masters money spots and to have a high level of American racing and lots of fun also. Richard does this often thankless job completely as a volunteer. He not only holds down a job as Senior Vice President at UBS but has a wife and five children aged 14- 5, and coaches the girls cross country and track and field teams at Bishop Snyder Catholic High where his eldest son runs on the team. Richard also manages to train and run a few marathons a year along with racing with several of his children and wife Amy at local events. Fortunately for him he manages to get by on four hours of sleep and keeps in constant touch with the world of professional distance running. Recently Richard has highlighted most of the runners on Facebook that he has lured to Gate this year. He has one of the best fields ever and the competition should be fierce. Both of the fields will be wide open with no clear favorite coming into the race. Most of the members of Coach Scott Simmons US Army WCAP team will be present as will members of Team USA Minnesota, BAA Elite, Boulder Track Club, ZAP Fitness, HOKA Arizona Elite, NorCal Distance Project and my own Atlanta Track Club Elite. Also Richard says "bringing along the next generation, I just counted no fewer than 21 men that ran NCAA Division 1 cross-country championships from 20132015 that will be running Gate and I am sure I missed a few." Richard has also recruited a whole new class of young collegiate women. Over half of the large

and it might in hindsight have been possible to hold the event. Cities and municipalities may have different parameters to work with than race directors, and police officers have other duties besides monitoring a race course. If severe weather is expected for example, they are often needed elsewhere. I recall reading about the inaugural Raleigh Marathon, scheduled for December 2000. The weatherman had predicted a major snowstorm for the Raleigh, NC, area on race day, so the city had to pull officers away from the race and assign them other duties. And as a result, the race was cancelled. As a footnote, the snow that was predicted never materialized, and the race was put to bed for good. Or at least until it was resurrected several years later as the City of Oaks Marathon, which is held a month earlier when it is much less likely to snow in Raleigh. So as runners or race directors, what can we do to prevent being faced by a race cancellation or interruption? And what can we do to minimize the impact in case we have to cancel an event? There's no “fool proof ” solution of course, since foul weather and other mishaps can happen at any time. But we can choose to run or organize our races at times and places where it's not very likely to occur. Instead of signing up for a race in Minneapolis in January for example, pick one in Atlanta in November. And always have a backup plan. If you are a runner, find a race or two that you could tentatively run in case the one you originally planned is cancelled. And if you are a race director, have a plan also, regarding how and when to determine whether conditions may be unsafe, and how to disseminate the information in case you are forced to cancel your event. Also, runners aren't always aware of all the non-recoverable expenses that come with putting up a race. Therefore it is important to communicate this also so they understand why entry fees cannot be refunded. A cancelled race may be a tougher pill to swallow for a young elite runner who is eager to put in a great performance than it is for a veteran or a back of the pack runner. But even for a long time runner like me it was a disappointment last year when I didn't get a chance to run the Naples Half. However, when life gets in the way we make other plans! I was happy to get the chance to run in Sarasota last year and to meet my friend there, and even happier to eventually get a chance to run in Naples this year. This in spite of that for the first time in my life I didn't break two hours, and that my quads got more sore after this race than I can ever remember!

areas of your running that you need to improve upon. What exactly do you need to do to improve these areas? Maybe you need more long runs, some interval training, more threshold training or even a better diet? Don't shy away from areas of weakness. These types of things in running are really under your control and if they are under your control you can work to improve them! No, you can't control your genetic talent, but you can indeed control how much belief and effort you put into your training and racing. The road to success and goal achievement is not usually a smooth one. There will be poor training runs, injuries (I hope not!), disappointing races, defeats, and even times of questioning if you really like to run. So just how will you respond to such setbacks? Prepare yourself for success, but also prepare yourself for how you will react to failure. Be ready to learn from setbacks and actually use the information gained from them to make you a better, happier runner. Just why were you tired going into the race, what factors contributed to the DNF marathon and even why aren't you as motivated as you once were. Learn new things about yourself and your running each day and put that knowledge to use in the future as you train, race or simply run for pure enjoyment. Sometimes it takes years to see the benefits of having a growth mindset in running. Improvement may be in very small increments, so you need to be patient. Like the old saying goes, “slow and steady wins the race.” Always keep in mind that you will never see improvement and progress if you simply give up. That much is certain. So keep growing as runner, not just now, but for the rest of your life.

Ultra Running Marathon Training

*The DivasÂŽ        

 ÂŽ

I had forgotten how hard marathon training is. One can become lulled by the “running is running� mantra espoused for ultras, but marathon training can, and should be hard work. That hard work is proving to be a challenge for me. Last column I wrote that I was going back to Boston, after a 21-year absence, and commencing marathon training. I had signed up for races as motivation. I had tried different “tricks� to further motivate myself. Ultimately, all failed, and I continued to run “just good enough� but not seriously. As a result I promised myself to actually train as if I was preparing for a marathon. The first aspect of that training was to run at least three 20 mile runs a month. I accomplished that in December with exactly three. January promises at least two, with 100 kilometer and 50 kilometer races to be run. I would like at least two more. December also saw a number of fartlek sessions during runs between six and 13 miles. In preparing my body for the real speedwork soon to come I have run hard

intervals, lasting between 30 seconds and two minutes, during these runs. I did include one sustained “faster paced� 10mile run, but think the run was too long, and the pace too slow to actually build endurance speed. January will need more such runs, particularly in the four to eight mile range, perhaps leading to a couple of short fast races in February. Speedwork is an absolute. To run fast one must practice running fast. When I was running seriously in races from 5 kilometers to 100 miles there were incredible

speedwork sessions. Sometimes as many as 25 eight-hundred meter runs, countless 400s. I may not quite get there by April. I will get as close as I can. There should be at least one actual speedwork session before I run a 100 kilometer on January 14th. That 100K will serve as a test run. This race requires an “old school� approach by running as fast as possible for as long as possible. This tactic, not necessarily the best for optimum performance, will serve the dual purposes of providing a long sustained run and give an indication of current conditioning when the “crash� occurs. The remaining slow miles will serve as recovery miles for workouts and races yet to come. I remain dedicated to running as fast as possible at the Boston Marathon. Ultras remain part of that build up and training. I hope that Boston will serve as a springboard for the task of quality marathons in the future, just as it did in 1979. That task will take training. Serious training. Long runs, speedwork, races at shorter distances, all of the things I know how to do, but have neglected. I should probably stop typing now and go for a run. I'll let you know next month how things are going.

Distance Memories A Dash To Escape From Wild Turkeys It was just after 8 a.m. the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Valerie and I were 10 miles into our run when we noticed several wild turkeys mixing it up with some chickens in the yard of a house on one of the country roads at Senoia, Georgia. We stopped to catch a glimpse of the action when suddenly the turkeys started running along the 100-yard asphalt driveway towards the road where we were standing. Jokingly I mentioned that the turkeys were coming after us. Thirty seconds later I discovered the joke was on me. Because 30 seconds is how long it took for five of the largest and loudest turkeys I’ve ever run across to take their position between we two runners, frozen in our tracks as we both wondered what was about to happen. Valerie spoke up first: “They’re going to dance for us.” (She explained later she used to have a turkey — ‘Tom Turkey’ — who would dance in circles whenever she was around). We waited a few seconds; dancing was the last thing on their minds. I looked up and down the street, hoping for someone to open their front door and reassure us they were “neighborhood turkeys who wouldn’t do us any harm,” throw some bird food from their front porch to distract them or at least tell us they had called 911. None of that happened. Valerie and I watched the turkeys intently — and they watched intently back. The tallest one — whose head came up to my chest, and probably weighed at least five pounds of feathers more than me, was the loudest … and meanest looking of the lot. Don’t get me wrong: Any one of the others would be enough to cause concern if you met up with them in a dark alley. After five or six minutes of gobbling, flapping their wings, ruffling their tail feathers, circling and intermittently creeping towards Valerie (and her two dogs who had been running with us) and me, the turkeys maintained their proximity to us. I looked at Valerie and said “checkmate” because I felt like we were in the middle of a Mexican standoff, except with wild turkeys and no guns. (My best guess is that during this time the turkeys were wondering whether or not we were carnivores. Truth be told, I was wondering the exact same thing about them.) As both my eyes were focused on the turkeys and what they might do next, I failed to notice that Valerie and her dogs were slowly distancing themselves from me and our feathered friends. I looked up and saw Valerie and her dogs were almost 40 yards away while the turkeys were still hovering in front of me, never more than

a couple of feet apart and always forming a perfect circle. All I could think of was this: I have to make a run for it. So I did. I ran towards Valerie, slowly at first just to see what the turkeys would do. They ran after me, keeping their distance at a couple of yards. I wasn’t sure if they were enjoying the run or were trying to catch me and peck me to the ground. I ran faster; they did the same. I ran even faster; so did they. Finally I broke out in a full sprint and gave it everything I had. I looked back and saw I had finally managed to open up a little distance between the turkeys and I started to breathe easier when I saw them stop dead in their tracks in the middle of the road. (A quick calculation: Turkeys max out at about seven minutes per mile, based solely on when this particular gang decided to call it quits. Interesting fact: A group of wild turkeys is called a flock, whereas a group

www.running.net of domesticated turkeys is known as a gang. Backwards, I know. During my research I also discovered turkeys can run 25 miles per hour. I’m glad I did this research AFTER my escape from danger; otherwise I just might have wet my shorts.) I regret Valerie didn’t have a cell phone with her; I can only imagine what I looked like running as fast as I could with five rather large wild turkeys in close pursuit. I have no idea what the expression on my face was because it was a blend of deathly fear, reaching my anaerobic threshold, disbelief and the slightest hint of a smile, because I knew that in a million years nothing like this would ever happen again. I was also proud of myself for proving an old adage to be entirely false, because regardless of what anyone says you can fly like an eagle when you’re surrounded by turkeys.

WOMEN’S RUNNING CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8 field will be running their first Gate 15K. "Christo Landry has finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th at Gate the last 5 years. He has won the USARC Road title the last 5 years and a slew of national titles. He will return to Gate this year!" reported Richard. "Skechers athlete Kiya Dandena has made huge strides the last few years. In very warm, muggy conditions, he ran the Half Marathon in a PR of 63:13 to finish as the second American at Houston in January against a very tough field! Thrilled that he will be returning to Gate River Run in March!" A few of the top men and women are still on the fence waiting until after National Cross Country to finalize their commitment. In the women's field, two-time Olympian Kim Conley will be racing her first Gate, taking on Neely Spence Gracey, Laura Thweatt, Meghan Peyton, Brianne Nelson, Emily Infeld, Aliphine Tiliamuk, Liz Costello, and Esther Erb to name only a few. It should be a barn burner. I can hardly wait to see the race unfold. I am fortunate to be able to spend three days feeding, entertaining and providing race swag to all of the elites. With the able help of my sidekick Elizabeth Unislawski who works for the Atlanta Track Club and is a team mate on the Atlanta Track Club Elite Team, we manage not to lose our minds getting little sleep, and keeping "our children" happy and prepared to race. It is our work of love after Richard brings all of them to us. This year we will have quite a few newbies (say about 75-80) so we will have our hands full. As we discovered last year my precious Steve did jobs we never knew existed. I am sure he will be with us every moment making sure our works gets done to his highest standards. If you want to see more about the elite runners racing, go to Richard's Facebook page. You will also find any additions posted there before race time. I hope many of my readers will be joining us for the run and the huge after party. It is definitely an event not to be missed.

BLURRY PHOTO is blurry for a reason. Scott was running like a wild man to escape the pursuing wild turkeys.

Learning from the Young Guns Digging Deep into Core Strength I'm not always the most decisive when it comes to making certain decisions. For instance, it's not uncommon for me to sit down to watch a movie on Netflix and spend so much time agonizing over which movie to watch - scrolling through the options, looking up reviews online, reading plot summaries - that I run out of time and end up watching a TV show instead. Decision paralysis has been studied, and as it turns out I'm not alone. Being presented with many choices, while seemingly appealing, actually makes people more indecisive and less likely to reach any decision at all. When it comes to strength training for distance runners, it's easy to be overwhelmed by information online or in magazines, and people paralyzed by the lack of clear direction often end up settling on doing nothing instead. When we work with the ZAP elite athletes and our adult running campers in the weight room, one of the goals is to teach them the purpose of the exercises and break down the movements so they have a better understanding of how to perform their core and strength exercises. Having a more thorough understanding of the primary movements involved in runner specific core and strength training allows you to better perform and evaluate the sensibility of an exercise routine. When it comes to runner specific strength training, the primary focus should be on the stabilization and strengthening of the hips. There are other areas that may have specific relevance on an individual basis, but a focus on hip stability will make you a better, healthier runner. When people think about core for runners, the first thing that pops to mind is abdominal strength. This is important, but not in the way you may necessarily think. Strong abdominal muscles do help stabilize your trunk and aid in pelvic rotation, but the specific abdominal muscle we want to strengthen is one most people have never heard of. The transversus abdominis is the deepest of your abdominal muscles and essentially wraps around your torso to stabilize your hips and spine. Learning how to activate this muscle while you are doing any core exercise is the most important part of improving hip and spinal stability. Stabilization of the spine is important for efficient communication between the nervous system and your extremities. If spinal stability is compromised your nervous system has a harder time communicating to your larger stabilizing muscles - sort of like a kink in a garden hose - and your running efficiency will suffer which can lead to both slower times and increased risk of injury. In order to activate your transversus abdominis, Jay Dicharry, author of Anatomy for Runners, suggests mimicking the abdominal activation of coughing where your belly button pulls in a bit toward the spine. This activation stabilizes both your pelvis and your spine and is an ideal position to start any core or strength exercise. Another way to think about it is to brace your core as if someone is about to punch you in the stomach. Before you start any core strengthening exercise be sure to turn this muscle on and keep it on throughout the duration of the exercise. This will help you avoid a lot of the mistakes people make when they are doing strength exercises, and ensure the exercises you are doing will improve your running and keep you healthy. One thing that you will notice immediately if you keep your deep core engaged throughout a movement is that you have far less anterior rotation in your hips. In other words, the hips will remain more level from the front to the back rather than the relatively common problem where the front of the hips tip forward. Anteriorly rotated hips are on of the

most common postural problems we see in distance runners. It can be the result of both tight hip flexors as well as a lack of spinal and pelvic stabilization. Quite often it is a combination of the two. When your hips rotate forward while you are running you will notice an accentuated arch in the lower back, an indication that you are lacking spinal stability. When this happens your body has a hard time activating your larger stabilizing and propulsion muscles, and the most common victims are your gluteal muscles. If you're a runner and you've been in to see a physical therapist in the last few years, you've probably been told your glutes are weak or not firing properly. This is a very common problem, and can often be traced back to lack of spinal stability with the deep core muscles. A running specific strength program should include abdominal exercises, but it must also include exercises that activate and strengthen the hip stabilizers as well. The primary hip stabilizer is your gluteus medius, which is responsible for stabilizing the hip joint upon impact during running. If your gluteus medius isn't functioning properly you'll notice your hips dipping from side to side or your knees knocking together on impact. The lack of stabilization in the hip joint leads a whole host of other problems as the rest of the body compensates in an attempt to provide that stabilization. Hip stability and deep core activation is not the end all be all of strength training for runners, but it is the best place to start and is the most important component to staying healthy and moving efficiently. Let the principle of activating your deep abdominals and maintaining spinal and pelvic stability throughout the exercise be your guiding light when it comes to navigating the sometimes murky waters of strength training. If you keep your core involved and your lower back in its natural position the strength gains will reinforce proper running mechanics. Importantly, a good exercise done poorly is a poor exercise; beyond being useless, it can be harmful because it reinforces poor muscle patterns that strengthen the dysfunction, making it that much harder to break those patterns going forward. ZAP Fitness is a Reebok Sponsored non-profit facility which supports post collegiate distance runners in Blowing Rock, NC. ZAP puts on adult running camps during the summer and is available for retreats all year. The facility has a state of the art weight room, exercise science lab for testing and a 24 bed lodge. Coaches at the facility include 2-time Olympic Trials Qualifier Zika Rea, 2007 USATF National XC Champion Ryan Warrenburg as well as head coach Pete Rea.

SPR NG SHOE REVIEW

2017

presented by

Running Journal • March, 2017

“T

he times they are a changin’,” wrote Bob Dylan more than 50 years ago, and that has certainly been the case in the running shoe industry over the past season. Emerging brands have seen some successes, there have been many new shoe launches (as with the most active past seasons, about 35% of this spring’s offerings are new), and changes in materials and construction methods have left their mark on the industry. Today may be the calm before the storm, as 2017 exhibits the hallmarks of significant transition. Much of the anticipation centers on the jump from standard manufacturing to automated processes. This could mean that we’ll be seeing shoes that are customized, quickly delivered, and possibly even made right around the corner from your house. Over the past few seasons we’ve seen new or improved manufacturing techniques and materials for uppers: engineered meshes, full-knit uppers, laminates, and membranes. Every shoe in this Review features one or more of these advances. And at the heart of midsole innovation is the thermoplastic elastomer, also known as TPE. These midsoles vary by ingredients, much like cookie dough recipes. Here, it’s the spongy foam that just may be the secret ingredient that makes a shoe a delight to run in. Brands look for their own special recipes and ingredients, and you are the beneficiary as these blends are all more protective, durable, and responsive than ever. As in much of life, education is your best bet for finding your perfect shoes. Your local running specialty store can capably assist you in this process because they know running and they know shoes. Use our reviews as a starting point. With their assistance and your own good judgment, we’re confident you’ll find success in your shoe search. — Cregg Weinmann Running Shoe Reviewer for the Running Network, LLC

W

elcome to our first Shoe Review for 2017! Even after all these years, the smell of running shoes straight from the box is still exciting for me. My first pair of real running shoes was Onitsuka Tiger Cortez. I purchased them—well, my mom, Marilu purchased them—for $36. She waited a few days to tell my dear father, as we had never spent more than $5 on a pair of running shoes in my first few years of running. My white Kmart tennis shoes would be nearly pink from the blood blisters I would develop getting them “broken in.” Hard to believe, but in that era blisters were a rite of passage. In today’s performance running world, our RN footwear guru, Cregg Weinmann, assures me that shoes are much better now than then. And I concur.  The key is to find the right pair of shoes for you. Don’t be swayed by social media hype or some blogger who’s paid to write about the shoes. At the Running Network, we review product from more than 40 brands, and about a dozen support our efforts through advertising in our various media platforms. If you see a shoe recommended here, rest assured that Cregg and his tireless wear testers have tried the shoe and taken it through at least 100 miles. All shoes submitted for our testing get the same treatment, whether or not the companies advertise with us. It’s a point of pride that we keep those two undertakings separate from one another. We’re in the process of putting all our content online: on social media and on mobile media as well. We appreciate your patience and support as we work our way through this process. And as always, a special thanks to our fearless team of Kristen Cerer (designer), Marg Sumner (proofreader), Cregg Weinmann (reviewer), and Christine Johnson (project coordinator and editor)—the team that has worked together on our Reviews for more than 15 years. Remember to purchase your running gear from a real live running store. Thanks for your support!

Hot Chocolate 15K/5K Atlanta brought out more than 15,000 runners on a beautiful Sunday morning. With temperatures kinder than the previous year many runners were eager to tackle the new 2017 course. This year the Hot Chocolate 15K/5K was run on a new course with a new start and finish line. The course started just outside of Olympic Centennial Park in downtown Atlanta. Many veteran Hot Chocolate runners will remember the hill that would greet them at the end of the race. This year the hill was towards the beginning and runners were glad to tackle that at the front end of the race. The new course also brought new course records at all distances. The race then ended in the Olympic Centennial Park where the post-race party took place. The post-race party included fondue, chocolate goodies, music and of course plenty of hot chocolate. The swag for this year was a big hit with runners. They loved the high quality of the jackets that they received with registration. Race day was filled with excitement from start to finish. The team from RAM Racing executed the race in the only way they know how, exceptionally. We would love to see you at Hot Chocolate 15K/5K Atlanta in 2018!

Fast Times At the 34th Annual Winter Flight 8K By DAVID FREEZE SALISBURY, NC - A cool and bright day turned cloudy and breezy as 250 runners and walkers posted fast times at the 34th Annual Novant Health Winter Flight 8K, Health Walk 5K and 1/2 mile fun run on Jan. 29. Ryan Jank of Mooresville ran a fast 25 minutes and 37 seconds to pace the 8K field while Winston Salem’s Molly Nunn ran a personal record of 29:12 to grab a tight win from Shawanna White of Columbia, SC, who was timed in 29:31. Orinthal Striggles of Columbia, SC, was a strong second behind Jank as he continues to push for the Running Journal Grand Prix crown. Drew Lake, age 15 from Greensboro, was third in 28:35. Masters runner Carolyn Bachl Stewart took third for the women in 33 minutes and 8 seconds. Masters winners were Milton Matheny of Kannapolis in 31:40 and Kelly Lowman of Salisbury in 33:14. Bobby Aswell of Cornelius posted 33:59 and Sheri Nemeth from Elizabethton, TN, finished in 36:56 to grab the Grandmasters top spots. Leading the Senior Grandmasters were Finn Hassing of Hickory with a fast 35:56 while Elizabeth Kimberly from Woodleaf finished in 51:28. Jank said, “I was surprised at how hilly the course was. But I loved the race. It was my second 8K in two days.” Nunn, a multi-time winner on the historic course, said, “I was used up by mile 3 and was glad to get the win. The organization is always amazing for this race. Nobody else does such a good job on coning the course, the split timers were so vocal and we had a great day to run.” Winter Flight is on the Running Journal Grand Prix circuit of quality races throughout the southeast and Ryan Jank also is the Road Runners Club of America 8K Championship in North Carolina. Runners from six states and Germany competed in the event. All proceeds go to Rowan Helping Ministries, the local homeless shelter. RHM provided volunteers to support the race. Aleiah Martin grabbed the fun run with a time of 3:24 over a half mile closed track course. Walkers covered a 3.1 mile course in a non-competitive format. Other sponsors for Salisbury’s premier running event included Catawba College, the City of Salisbury, the Salisbury Post, Piedmont Agri-Systems, the Trophy House, Scott Weant, Abigail’s, the Lettered Lilly, Whimziggy, Fowler Physical Therapy, Zaxby’s, Brent Parks CPA, Cheerwine, Dr. Acquawon Stallworth, Ameriprise Financial, Michael Wright CFP, Simply Good, David Post Law, The Forum, Koontz and Smith, Attorneys at Law, F&M Bank, Ways to Wellness, Walser Technology Group, Vac and Dash, Cleveland Drug and Bradshaw Financial Planning. The race is managed by the Salisbury Rowan Runners, founded in 1982, and is the oldest 8K and fourth oldest race of any distance in North Carolina. Winter Flight was the kickoff race for the Tarheel Tour for many years and continues as the unofficial kick-off to the racing season in our area. The historic course has remained the same for the last 25 years. Male, Overall Ryan Jank 25:37, Orinthal Striggles 27:53, Drew Lake 28:35. Masters Milton Matheny 31:40.
