Are You Someone's Inspiration? Maybe you've been running for a few years or maybe you're like me and have been running for over forty years. No matter how long you've been a “runner,” try and think back to when you first started running on serious basis. Was there one particular individual that you really admired and served as a type of role model to get you started running? Is there anyone today that you look up to and you really feel is a positive influence on your running? You can probably think of such role models you've had in the past, and today. For most of us, role models have played, and continue to play, a very important part in our running careers. Much of the research on role models is based upon Albert Bandura's Social Learning Theory. Bandura felt humans learn by participatory modeling, imitation and vicarious experience. We all learn by observing, integrating and then copying the proper and desirable behaviors of others. Our role models can be people we actually know, or they can be individuals we know only through the media. We model the behaviors of the people we admire, either through acting out real behaviors or through mental imagery, which is a form of what Bandura termed vicarious experience. Role models can be found in many aspects of life; however there are some specific groups of role models that can have tremendous influences on our behavior. First, and foremost, is the family unit. Family members, especially parents, may stimulate initial interest in sports and specific sports activities. Many of you may have children who run also. You probably are their most important role model! Later born children will tend to model their older siblings. Older brothers and sisters who run will increase the likelihood of later-born siblings getting involved in running. What sporting events children attend as spectators, will also have an effect on what sports they choose to participate in later in life. Children that attend track meets and road races, even to spectate, will be more inclined to select running as their sport of choice, especially if parents and siblings are participants. Running heroes can be a tremendously important form of role model. We all admire certain runners. It may be someone in your hometown or even a runner from another country. When I was just beginning to run, my role model was the former world record holder for the mile, John Walker of New Zealand. Even today I am partial to wearing a black racing outfit, probably because that's the color that the

By Richard Ferguson, Ph.D.

New Zealand runners wore. When I moved up to the marathon, the one runner who inspired me the most was Alberto Salazar. Even though he was about my age, I admired his gritty mental toughness and dogged determination. I'm sure each of you has your own special running hero who has, and continues to motivate and inspire! It may be Joan Benoit Samuelson, Kara Goucher or even your neighbor who completed her first marathon in her 60s. We can often relate to our running heroes because they share the same trials and tribulations in the sport that we do. It doesn't matter if you're an Olympian or an around the block fitness buff, there are going to be injuries to deal with, setbacks, disappointments, triumphs and moments where you experience extreme jubilation. We may choose our role models by the way they deal with these ups and downs of running. Through our role models we live a little bit as they do and share in their experiences. We emulate and strive to be like our role models because we see in them the grand possibilities in us. Our peers can also be very, very powerful role models. Sometimes our friends and acquaintances can exert enough influence to actually override our own individual preferences and tastes. In young people peer pressure may indeed be the major factor in beginning new behaviors, both good and bad. Many people actually get their start in running because they finally “give in” to a friend who has been trying to persuade them for months to give running a try. Another way in which peers can influence exercise behavior is through the popularity phenomena. When something becomes very popular in the general public many people will get involved just to fit in. Often times a reason people give for doing any activity is because “everyone is doing it.” The running boom of the 1970s and 1980s was fueled by these very phenomena. In the 70s and 80s running was “the thing” to do for everyone!

After the Run Phil Brown Remembered at Memorial 5K The Duke Energy Hines Energy Complex in Bartow, Florida, was a moving sea of runners and walkers wearing green tee shirts on the morning of April 1. Each week, my husband, Phil, started his workweek at Duke by wearing a green, two-button polo shirt. This was not a work-related requirement - simply a personal tradition that Phil had started a few years ago. Perhaps he wanted to see who was awake enough to notice the trend. Maybe he felt that green would be a lucky Irish start to each workweek. The reverberation from the Irish bagpipes that were played at Phil's funeral on March 6, was a resonating reminder of Phil's strong Irish roots. Service attendees wore running shoes in Phil's honor, and the men in Phil's family, wore green shirts. The green shirts at the 'Phil Brown Memorial 5k' on April 1, were slightly different. Embellished with winged running shoes and Phil's name, these shirts floated around the starting line with an energy prepared to celebrate Phil's life, and accomplish miles in his honor. Countless stories were shared with me that morning. They brought joy to my heart and tears to my eyes. “Phil saved my life,” one man said to me. He pulled out his phone and showed me a picture of himself from six months earlier. He was 60 pounds heavier. “I was on 16 types of medication for Colitis, and nothing was working. Phil encouraged me to change my diet, eat all natural, and eat a lot of fruits,” the man, who works as a contractor at Duke, said. He lost more than 40 pounds in six months, started running, and now needs no medication. “I credit Phil for all of it,” he said, explaining that none of the many doctors he had seen, had ever inquired about his nutrition. Another man, who was wearing HOKA

running shoes, also approached me. He told me that Phil was an excellent Supervisor. “He drove us to run this power plant, but he also drove us to try to live healthfully,” the gentleman shared. He said that Phil had encouraged him to start running. He started somewhere around three miles and as his commitment to running continued and his miles increased, he said that Phil encouraged him to invest in a pair of HOKA running shoes. “These things felt like clouds under my feet,” the man said, referencing his neatly tied HOKAs that he now wears during his runs of up to 17 miles. The 5k course encircled the power plant. In January of 2015, Phil and I had participated in another Duke Energy employees and family 5k along that course. Phil was the Overall winner that day, and I chased him to realize a 2ndplace finish. A local artist recently sketched a likeness of Phil, from that special day. I was able to have the image transmuted to the front of shirts for Phil's family to wear to the Memorial 5k. The image of Phil, rested (literally) on my heart, as I ran for him on April 1. His love of running fueled my feet to finish in the midst of swirling emotion. Everything was a reminder of the last time I had run around that plant - with him. Finishing the 5k, I looked at the Duke

Energy tower that served as the background to Phil's victorious finish a couple years earlier. He was filled with sheer joy that day. I also looked at the photos of Phil that had been strategically placed by the registration table. Seeing the banner, with Phil's name (in green), waving above each finish line success, moved me to more tears. I wanted him to be there. I wanted him to be part of it all. I wished he could see his nephew completing his very first 5k. I wanted him to see his brother running a 5k for the first time in 20 years, and I wanted him to see his dad doing what he always wished he would do - put his weekly running training to the test, by participating in an organized race. I hope that on some level and in some dimension, he experienced it. I hope he heard the stories, and I hope he saw all the smiles. Among the smiles, that approached the

This Running Life Vision Loss Can't Stop Runner From Finishing Umstead 100 On April 2, deep in the dark woods of Umstead State Park at Raleigh, NC, there was a chill in the air as the black night sky drifted into pink dawn and the stars faded in the early morning light. Richard Hunter, in tears, burst over the finish line at the Umstead 100 Endurance Race, 24 hours, 29 minutes and 47 seconds after he started at 6 a.m. the previous day. April Fool’s Day seems a likely holiday to begin the kind of feat many people consider a folly, but at Umstead Park every spring, the 100-mile race is more like a family reunion. For Hunter, 49, whose vision has been fading for the past 30 years, traveling to Raleigh to compete in the Umstead 100 was like a holy grail. Later, when the tears had dried and he was properly massaged and fed, Hunter reflected on his journey and vowed to take a month-long rest from running. He’s a Boston Marathon finisher and an Ironman, but this was his first 100-mile ultramarathon. He considers it his greatest accomplishment. “I’m so ready for a break, so ready,” he said, between bites of scrambled eggs and French toast. “I respect this distance, and I respect people who can run 100 miles. I don’t take anything for granted.” Hunter started running when he was a kid, but never really liked it. He jogged for exercise, and as a student majoring in psychology at Oregon State University, he ran as part of his ROTC training. At 6’1” and 230 pounds, he’s built more like a lineman than an elite runner. In 1989, when he was 22 and serving as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps, he was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa. “Eye disease is not compatible with serving in the military, so I received a medical discharge,” he said in a phone conversation about a week before the Umstead 100. He enjoyed a second career as a school psychologist, but retired in 2005 when his vision had diminished to the point he could no longer observe his students. Yet I wanted to continue serving as a role model for children to set ambitious goals in the face of adversity,” he said. He also wanted to be a role model for his own three daughters. So he started running. Really running. He qualified for the Boston Marathon and ran that storied race for the first time in 2008. He has run it twice more since then and achieved his 3:17 PR two years ago. The National Eye Institute defines Retinitis Pigmentosa as a group of rare genetic disorders that involve a breakdown

and loss of cells in the retina – the lightsensitive tissue lining the back of the eye. The disease affects 1 in 4,000 people worldwide. Common symptoms include difficulty seeing at night and a loss of peripheral vision. In late stage RP, people develop what is known as “tunnel vision,” and eventually they lose most of their sight. Hunter noticed a rapid decline between 2005 and 2008, and today, describes his field of vision as less than 5 degrees, with islands of grainy spotty, blobs. In the daylight, I can see shadows and contrasts. Depending on the light, I won’t be able to see the edge of the trails, and at nighttime I will be blind,” he said. “I will be able to see flashlights and headlamps, but not the terrain and in fact those lights may be distracting.” Hunter’s dream team: For Hunter’s Umstead run, he assembled a dream team of guides. None of the three runners he had tapped to guide and pace him had ever served as the eyes for a visu-

ally impaired runner, but all of them are experienced ultra-marathoners. Alan Barachievich has run a dozen 100mile ultras, including six Western States finishes. A physical therapist from South Lake Tahoe, Calif., he was the first of Hunter’s guides, scheduled to run with him for the first 25 miles before resting up to pace his wife Caroline, who also completed the Umstead 100. Eric Fogleman, an eye doctor from Southern Pines, N.C., is a prolific ultramarathon runner who was next in line and guided Hunter for the second 50 miles. Frankie Stone, an event planner from South Lake Tahoe, has finished seven 100mile ultra-marathons, including four at Umstead. She “knows Umstead like the back of her hand,” she says, and paced Hunter for the final 25 miles, in the dark. The Umstead 100 takes place on a 12.5mile looped course, consisting mainly of a wide bridle trail, and known for its forgiving surface. There is a short stretch of technical terrain and a sloping staircase that leads to the main aid station where runners can change clothes, eat, replenish water bottles and visit the race doctor and other medical professionals for minor pain, illness and blistered feet. It takes eight loops to complete the 100-mile course, and while the course is officially open for 30 hours, many runners strive to complete the race in 24 hours or less. This year’s winner, Olivier LeBlond of Washington, DC finished in 14:05:50. At Umstead, regular runners are allowed to have pacers after they reach the 50-mile

mark or after running for 12 hours. Hunter, who never felt his limited vision was an impediment, was more worried about his size than his sight, and believed he actually had an advantage over the sighted runners – the ability to have experienced runners guide him and help him through the entire race. “Frankie and these guys, Eric and Alan, they’re all accomplished ultra-runners and just have a ton of experience, so I was set up for success, no question about it,” Hunter said after completing the race. “A lot of people don’t have the support I had out there, in terms of crew support and the guide support from people who are so experienced.” Stone admits to having a big case of nerves before the race. Neither she nor her fellow pilots had ever guided anyone with a visual impairment anywhere, let alone on a 100-mile trail run, and the weight of the responsibility lay heavy on her shoulders. “I think we’re all really a little nervous about this because we want to make sure we’re going to be good at the job we’ve been tasked to do,” she said, sitting in the lobby of a local hotel the day before the race. “I think we are more worried than Richard. He’s as calm as he can be.” Hunter gave his guides a tutorial he wrote for “United in Stride,” a database of resources and tools to unite runners who are blind or visually impaired with sighted guides across North America. It was founded by the Massachusetts Society for the Blind and Visually Impaired in 2015 and has identified guides in nearly every state and in Canada. “Guiding a blind person is not rocket science,” Hunter said. “On Thursday (before the Saturday start), we went over to Umstead and we practiced with the tether briefly.” He held up his tether, a flexible, bright blue, slightly frayed strip of webbing, about 18 inches long, with looped handles on each end. A running buddy In 2015, Hunter was matched up with his best training buddy, Klinger, a handsome German Shepherd. It was a newsworthy pairing because Klinger is the first guide dog in the nation trained for running. At the age of two, he graduated from the Guiding Eyes for the Blind school in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. in a pilot program as the first-ever certified running guide dog. It took six months of specialized training and logging more than 200 miles before Klinger was certified to become a

EAT WELL, RUN WELL

The Science of Fueling for Performance Don’t let As a sports dietitian, I rely on the research of exercise physiologists and sports scientists who study the best ways for competitive runners - and all serious athletes - to fuel their bodies to optimize their performance. John Ivy PhD, Professor Emeritus at the University of Texas-Austin and author of Nutrient Timing, is one such researcher. Here are some of his insights. • Competitive runners need three times more carbs than protein to optimally fuel their muscles. If you are on a high protein (or high fat) diet, you could easily be missing that goal. Poorly fueled muscles have a higher risk of becoming damaged during exercise. • Let's say you are an Ironman triathlete who is training hard day after day. To optimally fuel your muscles on a daily basis, research indicates you want to consume at least 2.5-3.5 grams carbohydrate/lb. (6-8 g/kg) body weight/day, spread evenly throughout the day. That means carb-rich grains, fruits & veggies every 2 to 3 hours. This naturally happens if you eat breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, and evening snack. • Consuming carbohydrate stimulates the release of insulin. Insulin regulates the amount of glucose (sugar) in blood and allows the blood glucose to get into muscles to fuel muscles and replenish depleted muscle glycogen. Insulin also blocks the breakdown of muscle. • Protein combined with carbs stimulates a higher insulin response than eating just carbohydrate alone. This means, after you finish a hard track workout or a long run, recovering with chocolate milk will replace glycogen more efficiently and better refuel your depleted muscles than if you were to have a Gatorade. • Fueling during a track meet offers an energy advantage. If you are competing in more than one event, you would be wise to consume at least carbs, but better-yet, a carb-protein beverage, as soon as tolerable after the first event. Toss a few 8ounce lowfat chocolate milk boxes into your gym bag? • After an exhausting workout, a 155-lb (70 kg) runner should consume about 450 calories of recovery food. The ideal target is 25-30 grams protein + ~85 grams carb as soon as tolerable. (More precisely, 0.2 g protein + 0.6 g carb/lb. (0.4 g P + 1.2 g C/kg) body weight.) This could be 24 ounces of chocolate milk or 8 ounces of vanilla Greek yogurt + _ cup granola + a banana. Food labels can help you figure out winning combinations of foods. (Don't get obsessed about the exact ratio; pay more attention to the concept of consuming more calories from carbs than from protein.) • To get the most out of your weight-lifting program, you want to surround your workout with food. In a 13-week training program, one group consumed carbs + protein before and after the workout, while another group ate the same food but at the start and end of the day. The group that ate food close to their weight lifting session had a better training response and at the end of the 13-week training period, they were able to lift heavier weights (bench press, squat, dead lift). • By choosing both carbs+ protein (oatmeal + eggs, or pasta + meat sauce), you will be able to exercise better 24 and 48 hours after hard muscle-damaging exercise. You'll have a lower blood level of creatine kinase (CK), a marker of muscle damage. • Post-run protein activates mTOR, an enzyme that turns on muscle-building pathways. While protein helps build muscles, carbs refuel muscles; so again, you want to eat some sort of carb-protein combination at meals and snacks. Doing so helps sustain a rapid rate of recovery for 8 hours.

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

• About 20 grams of post-run protein is optimal to stimulate muscle growth. It's more protein than many morning runners might consume. For example, if you generally eat just a bowl of oatmeal after your morning run, your might want to cook the oatmeal in milk and add two hardboiled eggs to the meal. Or if you have just a salad after a lunchtime workout, top the salad with tuna fish (and add a whole grain roll). • At night, growth hormone peaks between 10:00 PM and 2:00 AM (the same time kids have growth spurts). You want to take advantage of elevated growth hormone by providing your muscles with the tools they need to grow. This means, before bed, eat a snack with protein, such as cottage cheese, turkey roll-ups, or 3-4 ounces of leftover chicken. (But please, don't even think about getting up in the middle of the night to eat. Sleep is more important!) • In the early hours of the morning (4:00 AM) when blood glucose is sinking, another hormone, cortisol, triggers muscles to break down into amino acids (the building blocks of protein). These amino acids then get converted into glucose by the liver and normalize blood glucose levels so the brain has fuel to function. A bedtime snack can help maintain normal blood glucose levels overnight. • Don't exercise on empty in the morning; you want to break the fast! When you awaken in the morning, your cortisol levels are elevated and breaking down muscle. If you eat nothing before your morning run, and/or skip breakfast afterwards, you stay in a catabolic (muscle-loss) state. Bad idea! A pre-run snack, such as a banana, granola bar or swig of orange juice can switch your body from being in the muscle breakdown mode to the muscle-building mode. • By the time the average (non-athletic) 20 year-old is age 70, he or she has lost about 40% of his/her muscle mass; the rate of decline is about 6% per decade. Muscle power starts to decline about age 30; strength at about age 40. By lifting weights, you can curb that loss; use it or lose it! To reduce muscle loss, do “protein pacing” - eating protein evenly throughout the day. This is preferable to having a big chunk of protein just at dinner. The bottom line: Food works! To optimize performance, 1) pay attention to what and when you eat and 2) eat carb-protein combinations, with more carbs than protein.

Learning from the Young Guns Things Professional Runners Do Better Than Us Imagine if you could pay an entry fee, show up in Augusta, and compete at the Masters against the best golfers in the world. One of the beautifully unique things about distance running is whether you're a two-hour marathoner or a sevenhour marathoner everyone lines up on the same start line and runs the same course. When our ZAP Fitness professional team does a question and answer session at our running camps one thing that always surprises our adult campers is how similar their experiences in the sport are. It doesn't matter how fast you are, many of the mental and physical challenges are the same, as are many of the motivations and joys; whether it's the elation of breaking through for a personal best or the drudgery of lacing up your shoes on “one of those mornings.” Despite there being more similarities than differences, there are three important things the pros do a better job of than most of us, outside of just running fast. Running fast, is of course the goal for all of us, and to get there we can learn from some of the very best. Most of these skills have been developed through the countless hours professional athletes have spent mastering their craft, but that doesn't mean we can't put their lessons to use for ourselves. I have spent many words of this column preaching the value of keeping your easy days easy, and by in large most professional athletes adhere to that principal. As with most of these concepts, it is easier for a professional athlete to adhere to them due to their experience, but also their ability. In this case professional runners tend to have several more gears in the transmission than the rest of us, sometimes limited to two - go and stop. While it may be easier for the pros to adjust their effort and find a pace that is easy and conversational, taking that lesson to heart will allow you to train healthier, train more consistently, and realize bigger improvements coming off harder workouts. Being in tune with your body is an important concept that allows you to take easy days easy, and when you need them. The best athletes understand that hard days and easy days can be more about effort than pace. An easy pace can vary greatly based on the day and level of fatigue, and you will rarely see professional athletes checking their pace on an easy run. Easy days are good for ditching the GPS watches that lure us into running faster and faster. If you know the distance

of the loop you're running, a simple chronograph watch will track the time it takes, and that alone gives you an overall picture of how your body is reacting and feeling, but worrying about keeping the pace high on an easy day is counterproductive. They are called “easy runs” or “recovery runs” for a reason and that is to allow your body to recover, regardless of the pace. Another important aspect to recovery and performance is proper nutrition, particularly post exercise. For professional athletes whose job is literally running as fast as possible, it's easier to take the time to plan and prepare proper nutrition throughout the day. However, just because the pros have more time doesn't mean we shouldn't bother paying attention to what we're putting in our bodies and when. The when is particularly important and that is an area where the pros are generally more attentive than the rest of us. We know our bodies operate most efficiently when they have a steady stream of calories throughout the day. This means eating frequently throughout the day rather than in two huge meals so your body isn't operating in big caloric deficits and surpluses throughout the day. If you were to attend the practice of a professional training group or individual you would find almost everyone consuming something immediately after their training run or race, even if they have a bad case of “tempo tummy” and don't feel like eating. The very simple act of consuming a few hundred calories immediately after a run kick starts the recovery process and allows the body to repair damaged muscle much more quickly. I recently had a conversation with a coaching client that illuminated a stark difference between the way most people approach their racing and the way professional athletes approach their racing. He was disappointed in a 5K he had run like all of us have been. The temperatures were hot and the field was competitive.

What he didn't realize initially was despite his “slow” time he had won his age group. Racing shouldn't always be about time. It's not to say the pros don't have goal times, everyone loves to run a personal best, but they are much less fixated on the numbers and more focused on competition. You often hear announcers on TV talk about how slow the pace of a championship event is, but the runners could care less; all they care about is winning. Unlike someone starting in the second corral of the third wave of a 20,000 person race, it's easy for them to identify their competition at any race the same way LeBron James knows who's going to guard him every night in the NBA. While it may be hard to identify individual competitors at big races, you can still have outcome goals that aren't predicated on covering a distance the fastest you've ever covered it, especially in the case of inclement weather. It's easy to check online at past results and come up with an age group placement goal for almost any race. Many of the mental struggles in running: pushing through pain in racing, dealing with low confidence or a bad race, finding motivation when you're in the dumps - these are all shared experiences we deal with together. Just as we all

Women’s Running Hasay Continues To Win In Preparation For Boston Debut The 40th running of the Gate River Run 15K, which also served as the 24th consecutive USATF national championship, took place on a beautiful day with temperatures in the low 60s, but with a significant wind coming into the competitors faces as they navigated the "green monster" Hart Bridge. Nearly 120 elite athletes lined up for the start of the 15,849 entrant race, which is the largest 15K in the United States. The field included six Olympians and a contingent of significant recent performances. The elite women started six minutes ahead of the rest of the field and the first male or female to reach the finish line would earn the $5000 equalizer bonus. The women went out at a fairly pedestrian 5:27 (enroute to her American record Shalane Flanagan hit the mile in 4:57!). There was a large group still together at the two mile, hit in 10:41. Only two of the lead pack got water at the two mile point. Mile four was passed in 21:22 and the pack was down to eight including 2016 Olympians Kim Conley and Emily Infield. Jordan Hasay, Aliphine Tuliamuk, Laura Thweatt, Neely Gracey, Natosha Rodgers and Liz Costello stayed together until five (26:37) when Costello and Conley dropped off. The remaining six stayed the course through 10K (33:03) and seven (37:50) taking turns in the lead. As they approached the base of the Hart Bridge, Hasay (Houston Half Marathon winner in 68:40 run on a very warm,

muggy day in January of 2017) took command and quickly separated herself from the remaining five who quickly broke apart. Infield took up the chase but Hasay had gotten away. Hasay is a very fit but very tiny woman who is preparing to debut at the marathon in Boston in mid April. She stayed in the middle of the lane as I could see the wind buffeting her significantly back and forth. "On the hill we were going really slow, so I thought I might as well take it" she stated at the finish. As she ran a 4:58 last mile down the Hart Bridge, two men were working together to catch her. She never took any water and never looked back but she could feel the pressure from behind her. Later she stated she did not know if her surge was successful until she crossed the finish."I didn't want to look back. I didn't look back and people were saying, 'They're coming! They're coming!' When people passed me, I hoped it was a man

and it was." She said "although I lost the equalizer bonus, I got to witness an incredible race to the finish" as Leonard Korir and Shadrack Kipchirchir battled past her to the closest finish ever at Gate. Korir, a 2016 Olympian was the very last elite runner to pick up his number at 9 p.m. the evening before the race. He told me he would give me 20 (push-ups) as that would be his punishment for being so derelict in his duty. I am glad I did not expect them that night as he needed every bit in his tank as he edged his U.S. Army World Class Athlete teammate by less than a second. A large group of men alternated the lead pack of nine and Korir who had stayed near the front but never led made his move on the descent of the Hart Bridge. "When they got to the top of the bridge, they decided play time was over" seventh place finisher Jon Grey stated. As Korir made a move only Kipchirchir went with him, matching him stride for stride."He is so strong" Korir said of Kipchirchir. "Especially doing 400, 200, he kicks so hard. I was scared this guy was going to make a big move." Korir lunged to the finish line winning a thriller by less than a second (43:22). Hasay (49:28) finished behind the two men. Infield was the second woman 14 seconds behind her, but although she did not go with Hasay on the uphill, she was pleased with her finish. Olympian Korir is on a tear as he won the Houston Half and the US Cross Country championships adding a third national title in three months. Hasay had triumphed at Houston and was gearing up to do another half in Prague before her Boston debut. She managed to get in a total of 18miles on the day of Gate and gave her Dad a nice birthday present with her win. One of her coaches told me she is averaging 110 miles a week and has had a good Boston prep thus far. A first marathon is never a done deal but Hasay is getting all the workouts and preparation done. She is still trying to learn to drink on the run and that will be important in Boston. I am really looking forward to her Boston debut. The 40th Gate was a total success although the anticipated breaking of Todd William's record (42:22)was foiled by the wind and the variable pace of the leaders. The record set in 1995 remains intact. Richard Fannin did his usual incredible job of getting arguably the best field ever for the 40th running of the race his father,

RUNNING PSYCHOLOGY CONTINUED FROM PAGE 2 We should all try to use our role models in a very positive manner. Certainly, in today's society there are many negative role models that the media bombards us with each and every day. “Dirty laundry” makes a good story in both print and electronic media. I can think of no other activity in which the positive values of American Society are as deeply engrained as they are in running. Hard work, dedication, discipline and dealing with success and failure are all very important values for life and each of these are certainly learned through running. In reality everyone that runs serves as a role model for those who don't. The average fitness level of Americans certainly needs to be improved, and by being runners, each of you has a positive influence on improving fitness in the general public. Embrace your identity as a running role model because it is indeed an important one. You never know how many people admire you and how many people you inspire through your running. Society needs positive role models and I can think of no more positive role models than runners. You just never know when you're someone's inspiration!

Masters Running and Beyond Getting Ready to Race - A Guide for Beginner Runners I want to begin this month’s column with a general note to my valued readers. After writing here in Running Journal for eight years and covering what seems like every subject under the sun that is related to masters running, I will sometimes expand my horizons and write about things that may not specifically apply to Masters runners. Hopefully you will still find a tidbit or two that you find useful, like this month when I focus on getting a beginner runner ready for his or her first race. After all, we were all beginner runners once upon a time, and a few of you may be new to running right now. Also, several of us have friends who have recently taken up running. Last month I discovered some notes that I wrote 14 years ago, to get participants in a local beginner runner program physically and mentally ready for their first race. And it dawned on me that we were all beginners at some point. Even a seasoned runner like me can always use a few reminders about how to get ready to race! For a new runner entering her first race, it will always be a challenge and a milestone. Her reasons for participating in an organized event instead of continuing to run on neighborhood streets or trails could be many, but to master a challenge is almost always one of them. Even if she doesn’t consider this a reason when she signs up it will evolve into one as race day nears, because she will be on unchartered territory. So, rather than aiming for a specific time I would recommend for a first time racer to focus on crossing the finish line, being somewhat challenged but at the same time as comfortable as she can. So how is this possible, to be comfortable and challenged at the same time? Shouldn’t we step out of our comfort zone when we take on a challenge, such as a race? Whether we are beginners or experienced runners we want to perform as well as we can on race day, which means leaving our comfort zone. This is easier to do if we are prepared for what lies ahead, which is why I have addressed some of the most common new runner questions and pitfalls below. The biggest confidence builder for a new runner is probably to have completed the race distance on a training run before attempting it in a race. But what else might a new runner want to know prior to their first race, in order to make it a positive experience? Below I will answer some questions they may have.

By Lena Hollmann

“Should I run the day before the race?” For a new runner, I recommend NO. We want to feel as fresh as possible on race day. A light walk or swim may be beneficial though, especially to remove some of the pre-race jitters. “What should I wear during the race?” The most important piece of gear for a first time racer is a good pair of shoes, which are not brand new. Experienced runners have figured this one out of course, but beginners maybe not. For them it might be tempting to go to the store the day before their first race and get a new pair of shoes. But they will certainly regret it when they reach the finish line with their feet full of blisters! The best advice you can give a new runner is to wear a pair of shoes they have worn and felt comfortable in during several training runs, but show no visible signs of wear and tear. Other wearables that new runners might not give enough attention to are a good and supportive jog bra for the women, and for all of us, whether new to running or not – sunscreen! Especially here in Florida, and especially during the spring and summer season, sunscreen in a must. Even if the race is early in the morning, we will get sun exposure as we are hanging out after the race, enjoying refreshments, talking to friends, and waiting for the awards ceremony. A new runner may also feel tempted to bundle up too much, especially if it’s chilly on race day. So they need to be reminded that it’s OK to feel a little cold at the start, as they will warm up once the race is under way. “What should I bring to the race?” An experienced runner usually knows what to put in their race bag. However it still helps to have a checklist so that we don’t forget anything as we leave the house in haste early on race day morning. Even better, pack your bag the night before. Some things to pack are an extra shirt (as you will sweat and may want to

change), warm-up clothes for pre-race, a towel, a banana or other light snack for after the race, extra pins, a water bottle or two, and if it looks like it might rain, a garbage bag or raincoat to wear before the start. Again, most of us know how to pack for a race. But for a new runner a checklist will come in handy, for their comfort and confidence. “What should I eat before the race?” This varies from person to person. In order to avoid unpleasant surprises on race day, it’s a good idea to test before heading out on training runs what works for each of us. The best advice for a new runner is to eat foods they are familiar with the night before and morning of the race, and nothing too spicy. Personally, I will have a cup of coffee and a slice of toast or two on race morning, and this should work for most new runners as well. Last but not the least, we need to pay attention to hydration. I could write an entire column about this, as the amount we need to drink depends on a number of factors, among them the weight of the runner and the weather on race day. A general guideline for a new runner would be to drink enough so they don’t feel thirsty but not so much that they feel bloated. And also to drink plenty after the race, to replenish fluids lost. “When should I arrive at the race site?” For a new racer, not arriving early enough to the race is probably the biggest pitfall of all. They might believe that if they get there 20 minutes before the start, they have plenty of time. So, it cannot be emphasized enough that runners need to allow an abundance of time for parking, warm-up, potty visit, etc. etc. If they haven’t picked up their race packet beforehand, they need to allow additional time for that. I would recommend arriving 45 minutes to an hour ahead of time at a minimum, more than so for larger races. And again, make sure a new runner knows to allow time for the potty line! “How do I control nervousness before the race?” I’m not nearly as nervous before races now as I was during my more competitive days. I race mostly for fun now, and have raced for so many years that it has become routine. But for a new runner arriving at a race site for the first time, it is a different story! They need to know that being a little bit nervous can be a

good sign and nothing to worry about. This indicates that they are geared up and concentrated on the task at hand. But if pre-race nervousness bothers them, they need to remind themselves that they are doing the race for fun, and that they have done it before, even though it was in a different setting, on a training run. (This why having completed the race distance on training can be so very helpful!) To have a friend or a support group on site also helps, which is one reason why beginner runner group programs can be an important confidence builder. I hope you can pick out what applies to you, or maybe to a friend who is new to racing, from the advice I have shared here. Maybe you even have a Masters runner friend or two that you can inspire to join you at the races after they realize how fun and easy it can be!

AFTER THE RUN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 counting clock, came Adrien - a man with a full-out sprinting finish, like no other I have ever seen. Prior to preparing for Phil's Memorial 5k, Adrien was heavier and had not run in quite some time. Yet during Phil's Memorial 5k, he placed fourth overall, and he looked great. In fact, the entire group of more than 60 runners and walkers, looked great. More importantly however, their supportive, compassionate, loving, and giving energy felt great. The run, which will now be an annual event in honor and in memory of Phil, raised more than $1500 for Phil's alma mater, Williamson College of the Trades - the school where Phil ran cross country before becoming an accomplished ultra runner. (Editor's note: Phil Brown was killed March 1 in a head-on crash with a truck while riding his motorcycle to work. The truck was attempting to pass another vehicle. He was thrown from his motorcycle and died at the scene.) Mary Marcia is a runner, fitness professional, and Race Director of the TICK TOCK ULTRA MARATHON & TEAM RELAY in Lakeland, Florida.

Distance Memories Lowering the Bar at Albany, then Celebrating I’ve been running marathons since 1979. In every last one of them I’ve always had a goal; one that continued raising the bar higher and higher. Finish. Break three-anda-half hours. Run through the wall. Break three hours. Qualify for Boston. Set a personal best. Set another personal best … and another. Later, as age caught up with me and took its toll on my endurance and to an even greater degree my speed, the focus was no longer on raising the bar but rather on making each marathon a memorable one. I’m happy to say that I was never disappointed. It may have been because I was able to run in a new and exciting locale, help another runner achieve a personal goal or simply meet new people along the way who would all become friends for life. The past few years the goal has simply been to turn each marathon into an adventure. It’s not that any of my marathons haven’t been, but rather to say that if that adventure no longer existed the thrill of running a marathon would be lost. This morning, as I lace up my shoes for a marathon my goal is simply this: Don’t die.

THIS RUNNING LIFE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4 member of Hunter’s family. Klinger, who is limited to running distances of six miles or less, did not travel to North Carolina. Instead he stayed home in California with Hunter’s wife and daughters. The group of novice guides took solace in the idea that if a dog can be trained to run with Hunter, then they should be able to do it too. “I never even thought about that,” Hunter said. “That’s hilarious. How hard can it be if a dog can do it?” Stone laughed. “I’m Klinger’s stand-in on this trip,” she said. After Stone crossed the Umstead finish line with Hunter, her laughter mingled with tears of joy. “I learned that people can do extraordinary things,” she said later. “Anything is possible. I feel transformed and forever changed, and my own running has already benefited from spending time with Richard.” Fogleman, the optometrist, is looking at ultra-running with new eyes too. In his practice, he deals with low-vision patients on a regular basis. Richard is an inspiration. It was just a big inspiration to run with him, and I’ve learned so much,” he said. “This was a whole new experience, to have to maneuver stairs, roots and trails with a vision-

After suffering a heart attack a little over seven months ago, I think the goal is realistic. My heart doctor — who has given me a green light to continue running with one caveat, ‘Don’t push it’— is in my corner. Friends I’ll be running with today are both in my corner: Val, with whom I’ve run marathons for the past two dozen years, and Antonio, who is running his very first marathon and in all probability will be the last person I’ll ever personally have any influence on in becoming a long distance runner. They, as well as I, know there is a very real possibility that the thrill of pounding the pavement for most of the morning is also an open invitation for the impaired runner.” The wreck. In 2011, Hunter, completed the Ford Ironman Florida triathlon in 11:55:2. He has also completed numerous shorter distance triathlons and two 50-mile ultramarathons. But four years ago, on a sunny August day, while training for his second Ironman, his athletic career and indeed his life, were nearly cut short. He was on a tandem bike with his pilot, Justin Waller, when a car driven by an elderly woman attempted to turn left into a parking lot and hit them. Hunter, who was thrown over Waller, shot headfirst through the car’s windshield, his head landing the driver’s lap and his legs hanging over the hood. His helmet was cracked, and he suffered facial fractures and a fracture of his C-7 vertebrae, which has never completely healed, though his spinal cord wasn’t damaged. He manages muscle tightness and pain with massage therapy and over the counter medicine. On race day, he relied on Barachievich, the physical therapist, to help with pain management. A naturally speedy runner, Hunter knew his ultimate challenge would be to avoid giving in to a desire to start out too quickly. He relied on his guides to keep him slow and steady. After 50 miles, he was on track to finish the run in 25 hours, but he knew he had a chance to finish sub 24. Coming into the 7th lap, Stone knew it too and offered to help him push his pace

Grim Reaper to rain on my 26.2-mile parade. However, at 7 a.m. the three of us stand shoulder-to-shoulder with 1,000+ likeminded souls who understand that a healthy lifestyle is the best method of keeping death at arm’s length. Val, Antonio and I enjoyed the cool, crisp morning running along the streets of Albany, Georgia to the constant cheers from the local citizens who more than once thanked us for coming to their fair city to run. No, Albany; thank you for having us. By noon Val completed another marathon, bringing her lifetime total to somewhere near 100. Antonio successfully finished his first, and by all indications there will be many more to come. As for me, I’m just happy to report I followed my doctor’s orders and it worked: I crossed the finish line, and I didn’t die. I spent a cool, crisp morning running for a very long time with two of my closest running companions in one of the most runner-friendly cities I know. We all finished, and we got together afterwards to celebrate.

I would never have guessed that by setting the bar so low I was actually raising it higher than it’s ever been. Epilogue: It was 38 years ago this month that I ran my very first marathon in Gainesville, Florida. Moments before the start I asked (then) University of Florida running coach Roy Benson for any advice he could offer. His response — I can still hear it to this day — was terse and to the point: ‘Don’t run marathons.’ He was dead serious. Well Coach, after 200+ marathons I’ve decided to take your advice. I can walk away with the knowledge that the bar is resting comfortably on the top rungs. Scott Ludwig is president and founder of Darkside Running Club (.com). He lives in the Atlanta area and is the author of 11 books - 7 about running - and is working on others. Scott's book “Running to Extremes: The Legendary Athletes of Ultra Running” is now available. It features stories on Ray Zahab, Dean Karnazes, Larry Macon, Mark Covert, Ed Ettinghausen, Mike Morton, Tim Twietmeyer, Ann Trason and seven other amazing athletes of long distance running. You can find it on Amazon and most major booksellers. The book is inspired by and dedicated to the enduring memory and legacy of Ted Corbitt. Scott can be reached at darksiderunning@comcast.net.

if he wanted to finish in less than 24 hours. Hunter was beyond caring. He only wanted to finish and feel good. He ran most of the trail, and only walked on the hills. As they approached the finish, Stone hoped he was basking in the glory and his success, but he held onto his emotions until the very end.

“I was surprised at how stoic I was. I wasn’t going to celebrate until I finished because I knew a lot could happen,” he said. “Throughout the run, I didn’t know if my body would hold up. I expected to face my demons out there.” But Hunter saw no demons that night. Only angels. A few days after the race, Stone had time to reflect. She has realized a sense of purpose in her running and will be looking to Hunter to help put her in touch with other visually impaired runners. “I love the accomplishment of finishing an endurance race, but because of Richard, my running has become more meaningful,” she said. “I was able to give someone their race.” As for Hunter, he is easing back into his routine, taking Klinger for short jogging excursions. He is still amazed he was able to run 50 miles farther and 12 hours longer than he ever had before. “I’m a big guy and I learned my body can hold up a lot longer than I ever imagined,” he said. “That’s not too bad for someone at 230 pounds. Not too bad for a fat kid.” And for the record, despite all the jokes he makes about his size, Richard Hunter is not fat. He’s fit, and has 100 ways to prove it.

Down the Road Accidents, Illnesses and other Misadventures If you are a runner something is coming for you. What’s it going to be? An accident? An illness? Or something else? Believe me, this is bad news. But something is going to happen to virtually every runner to create problems or perhaps even end their running. Not exactly what you want to hear about. Maybe that’s why you hardly ever see anything written about it. But maybe somebody who has seen and been through some of these things can help you prepare to make the best of it. I’m probably not the first choice, but as Josh Ritter sings in ‘Kathleen’, one of my favorite songs of his: “I’m here and I’m ready and I’ve saved you the passenger seat.” Some things you can prepare for or even better, try to make sure they don’t happen. Of course you can’t prepare for an accident. My wife Kathy and I had perhaps half a second or less to even think about what to do when the woman who was texting came across the center line and hit us head on. Not too much you can do about an accident. What you do afterwards is important. Back in July of 2013 I wrote about how I started running one week after that accident – BAD DECISION. I started running too soon and probably caused further damage to my foot. Like a lot of us who considered ourselves serious runners, we always wanted to get back to running right away. I wish I had taken a little time and not just let the aches and swelling in my body and ankle go down enough to run again. If you are in a serious accident, as Kathy and I were, you should get thoroughly checked out by someone who is tuned in to runners and our desire to keep on running. Then get all the X-Rays, MRIs etc. that they recommend and then TAKE THEIR ADVICE. It always amazes me how people will pay a trained professional to give them their expert opinion and advice and then NOT TAKE IT. Or see a strange doctor and not really get any advice. I cringe when I read what I wrote for this magazine about what I did after the accident: “We didn’t go to the emergency room after being checked out by EMS. We did have a lot of aches and pains the next day so we went to our family practice and saw the doctor on duty. We had to use muscle relaxers and pain killers. We have bruises and soreness, but the rib of mine that felt like it was broken was not, and the painful kidney is just that with no serious injury, and that is a blessing, though both still hurt every time I move

right now.” Wow, does that sound like somebody who was thinking straight? Not only did I not see my regular doctor who was a runner, I saw a non-runner and didn’t even get any X-rays. Little did I know that the aches and pains were covering up the severe damage to the ligament, tendons and bone in my right ankle. I got pain killers from a standby doctor who didn’t even know me. Don’t make this mistake. I wish I had gone back and seen the doctor who knew me, even if it meant another annoying trip to the doctor’s office. Minor injuries can also slow you down or stop you. Let them heal. See somebody who knows about runners, and listen to them. I remember Dr. Charlie Post who was our family doctor and a runner himself down in Charleston. When I broke my foot in the New York City Marathon he told me how long I would need not to run to properly recover. The same goes for other major accidents. For minor accidents he would diagnose and give meaningful recommendations. What about illnesses? Every runner is going to have illnesses. Let’s talk about minor illnesses. We all get colds, strange ‘bugs’, and the flu etc. and Charlie would always say “Never run when you have a fever, it can damage your heart.” But for minor things, he would advise the minimum amount of time off from running. Find a doctor who cares about runners. Establish a relationship, so that when, not if you have an accident, you will have someone with a baseline and an understanding of what you do as a runner. What about major illnesses? If you live long enough you are probably going to have one. Kathy surely never expected to have colon cancer at the high point of her running career. But she took the doctors’ advice, had the surgery, and after a long recovery came back. Not only did she come back but after having to miss the 1997 Cooper River Bridge Run, she ran well enough to win 3rd place Grand Masters prize money. So a serious illness is not necessarily the end of your running

or of your ability to run well. Again, proper attention and early diagnosis gets more critical every year you run. A major illness, such as Multiple Sclerosis will end your running. It is just a question of time. It took about two years for Kathy to reach the place where her balance problems ended her running. If you have a major illness, it doesn’t bode well for your future as a runner, but your life doesn’t necessary end. Walking, swimming and biking (if it is a non-balance related illness) are substitutes (albeit not as satisfying to some people) which a lot of people adopt. Keeping fit and keeping the weight off really matter in every category discussed in this article. It gets very difficult to keep weight off when your favorite exercise is taken away from you. It demands your constant attention, and I’ll tell you from personal experience, it is not easy. A lot of illnesses, especially minor ones can probably be minimized by proper diet and by getting enough rest. But life sure sometimes gets in the way of that. Ask any new parents how much time they have for running. Ask anyone who gets a major job promotion and perhaps has to relocate, and take on a lot of additional and probably time consuming responsibilities, how that effected their running. Usually it slows folks down. Will you be the exception? What about misadventures? Shall I bore you with the time I dropped a very large and heavy jar of Dill pickles on my big toe, and it swelled up and hurt like crazy? I guess that could count as an injury, but it

sure was a misadventure as well. What about the time our Siamese cat decided he didn’t want a bath and clawed my hand. The hand was about twice normal size the next day. Or the dog the guy said wouldn’t bite anyone, jumped up and bit Kathy’s hand one day when we were running on the sidewalk down Cherry Road. These kind of things you can’t really plan for, but do the right thing and get them taken care of. And if you need to take a little time off from running do it. There used to be a saying – “If you take one day off from running nobody can tell. If you take two days off from running only you can tell. If you take three days or more off from running your close competitors can tell. If you take weeks off, everyone can tell.” The counterpoint: If you need to take time off from running to recovery, it doesn’t matter how long it takes. What is important is that you take the amount of time you need so you can keep on running. Ask me how much I wish I had taken more time off – months perhaps – after our accident to completely recover. I did not do it at the time, instead I kept building my running, despite the pain and even raced. So now I can’t run. If you are in Rock Hill you might see us walking – Kathy and me, up to about 2 miles most days. Do you want to make it so you can’t run? Let’s hope not. We really want to see you running and racing down the road for as long as you want to do so. Somethings going to get you. Make sure you do what you can to delay it for as long as you can.

Inspired Daily You Never Forget Your First Marathon I was recently asked a series of questions about my interest in marathons which got me thinking about my first. Like many firsts in our lives, I believe the first marathon is one that will never be forgotten. Can you tell me a bit about your first ever marathon? When was it, which race, and race time? My first marathon was the Jacksonville Marathon in December 1995 in Jacksonville, Florida, about six months after I graduated from Brown University. I had to wait until after college to run my first marathon since I was on the cross country and track teams. My dad was towards the end of his running career but trained and ran the race with me. My first marathon was his last. I cherish that memory. I finished in 3:48. I remember the time exactly because I had missed qualifying for Boston by 8 minutes. There’s a little more to the story in that around mile 18 my quads completely locked up and I was forced to stop and stretch numerous times. Yes, I hit the wall, badly. It was such terrible pain that I waited until 1997 to run my next marathon. But, missing that 3:40

By Rae Ann Darling Reed

Boston qualifying time made my goal to BQ at my next marathon stronger than ever. I did qualify for my first Boston at the 1997 Disney Marathon in January and ran my first Boston just three months later. What made you want to run a marathon in the first place? Growing up in Massachusetts watching the Boston Marathon on television every Patriot’s Day, I dreamed of running it someday. I grew up watching my dad run and win many local road races and marathons. I started running at age eleven, joined the cross country team

in middle school, and then ran cross country and track in high school and college. I enjoyed long runs and longer races like 10Ks. The Boston Marathon was something I always knew I would do someday. What marathon has been your favorite so far? The Boston Marathon for sure. No other race has as much excitement, nostalgia, and history. I live in Florida now so every time we go to Boston it is like going home. That feeling, plus the fact that Boston is the world’s most famous foot race, make it my favorite. As your seventh time racing Boston, what are you most looking forward to? I trained a little differently for this one and I am really excited to compare my fitness level this year to last year. This year I opted for Hansons coaching with a Boston specific, higher mileage plan. It definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. I can remember years ago when I hit 50 miles for the week for the first time and thought it was such a high number. Over the past three years I have used the Hansons Marathon Method Advanced Plan which has some 50 and 60 mile weeks so I have been used to that. But for Boston 2017 I decided to go big and chose the Hansons Boston 75 mile per week plan. I had a few peak weeks over 70 miles which blew my mind at first, then left me feeling quite exhausted. To be totally honest, the fatique would not have been so bad if I hadn’t raced too much in February and March while I was hitting this peak

weekly mileage, so that’s my mistake not the training plan. I did have to back off the last two weeks of the plan prior to the taper week but as I enter taper week, I am feeling much better than I did two weeks ago. By the time this issue goes to press, I will have run the Boston Marathon and cannot wait to share that result with you! What tips would you give other runners who want to qualify for Boston? Be consistent with your training, put in the miles, strength train, work on flexibility, and find a good coach or training plan that fits your life. If you hire a coach, which I highly recommend, listen to him or her. I didn’t do the best job of that this time around, but we live and learn. Remember that every body is different and responds differently to training, so what works for a friend may not work for you. Whether it’s your first marathon, first Boston, or first 5K, enjoy the journey and don’t focus so much on the result because good or bad, you will always remember your first.

Running Through the Bluegrass Louisville Triple Crown, Success and Disappointment In the 10 years I’ve been a runner, I’ve only completed the Louisville Triple Crown of Running three times. There are a lot of reasons for that, including years I ran spring marathons that made the timing difficult. I definitely had my best year there this year, finishing in the top 10 of all three races. The Triple Crown is a three-race series, with a race usually every other weekend, including a 5k, 10k and a 10 miler. Each year about 20,000 people complete at least one of the three, with about 5,000 finishing the whole series. It’s a challenging and competitive series, but also offers less experienced runners a chance to build up to a longer race. Many also use it as preparation for the Derby miniMarathon in late April. The series kicked off the first weekend in March, which was also the week we moved … and walked into two inches of water in our basement on closing day. For the Anthem 5k, I couldn’t find a lot of my gear, and my regular racing shorts were dirty because I couldn’t use our dryer because the water damage people needed the circuit. I was tired, emotionally drained, and generally had low expectations. Given that, I ran great! I executed my race plan and beat several girls that I don’t usually. However, the

course was officially .17 short, so my amazing finish time wasn’t really. Depending on how it is adjusted, it might’ve been a tiny bit of PR, but that’s not how PRs work! Two weeks later, I lined up for the 10k. I blew my race plan, didn’t run well, and overthought the entire thing. Another two weeks later, Papa John’s 10 miler. Coach and I had a talk before that one, and he reminded me that the house and work stress was — without me realizing or accepting it — probably adding about 20 miles of fatigue to my body. My workouts had been okay but not amazing, and on easy days I was feeling sluggish. I came into PJ10 wanting to run a smart, even race; a race where I didn’t put so much pressure on myself that I didn’t

run well. Mission accomplished. In hindsight, there was a group of three girls about 45 seconds ahead of me that finished within 5 seconds of each other. I should’ve been in that group — I probably could’ve been in that group. The past two times I’ve finished the series, I’ve had combined finishing place totals of 218 (2007) and 44 (2015). This year I got that down to 25. It wasn’t quite the series I hoped

for, but I also knew that would happen this year. After an amazing 2016 and a great fall marathon, I recognized I would have to temper my expectations this year. I wanted to finish in the top 10 of each race, and I did. I had hoped for some PRs — and with the short 5k course, I was cheated on that one. My 10k time was almost a PR and given how poorly I ran it and how windy it was, not bad. And the 10 miler was technically a PR — I ran a (much flatter) 10 mile race on Jan. 1 but it ended up being about .3 long. So, one PR and three top-10 finishes — it’s funny how we can be disappointed by stillgood race performances. Plus our Personal Best Training - Indy team won the co-ed division at each race and the overall title! Want to join us for the Louisville Triple Crown next year?

Hattiesburg Clinic Rise & Shine Race Draws Largest Crowd to Date HATTIESBURG, MISS. - More than 700 individuals, along with clinic employees and members of the community, participated in Hattiesburg Clinic's 6th Annual Rise & Shine Half-Marathon & 5K, held April 1 at the clinic's main campus. The event benefited The Arc of Southeast Mississippi, a non-profit organization that serves South Mississippi residents with developmental challenges. Proceeds from this year's event are expected to surpass $30,000 for The Arc's Rise & Shine Program, which allows adults with disabilities the chance to take part in recreational, social and community centric activities. “We are happy to say we had more race participants this year than ever before, which means we will be able to increase our donation to The Arc this year. As always, this would not have been possible without our sponsors and volunteers,” said Susan Yarrow, public relations manager for Hattiesburg Clinic. “We cannot thank our sponsors, the community and all of our volunteers enough for making this year's event so successful.” Hattiesburg Clinic employees, as well as members and supporters of The Arc, attended the event to help facilitate the race and cheer on participants. Both the half-marathon and 5K started at Hattiesburg Clinic's main clinic on South 28th Avenue and continued through the south side of Hattiesburg, with the half-marathon stretching across Hardy Street to The University of Southern Mississippi campus and circling back to Hattiesburg Clinic.

Nicole Esplin Wins Her First Big Race at Rock 'n' Roll Raleigh RALEIGH, NC - The city of Raleigh, North Carolina put out the red carpet for thousands of runners on April 2 at the Humana Rock 'n' Roll Raleigh Marathon & _ Marathon with featured charity ALS Association North Carolina Chapter. The annual race routes participants through the most scenic parts of North Carolina's “City of Oaks.” Nicole Esplin of West End, North Carolina prevailed in the 13.1-mile half marathon, blazing an average of six minutes and sixteen seconds per mile to finish first in 1:21:55. Her nearest rival was Raleigh's own Tereza Novotna, who came across the finish line in 1:23:28. Third place was awarded to 25year-old Holly Clarke, who ran 1:23:59. Esplin, who originally lived in Raleigh, said her win was incredibly exciting. “It was the first big race that I have won,” she said. “The course is my favorite course in the area. It's beautiful. You get to run downtown for this race. It's definitely a hilly course and I'm very happy for anyone who finished it today. The weather here was perfect. You couldn't ask for anything better.” Esplin said she started training for the half marathon in January and at the beginning of Sunday's race, she was surprised to find herself in the lead. “I kept expecting someone to come up behind me,” she admitted. The men's half marathon was a closer affair with 36-year-old Edwin Kibowen of Kenya breaking the tape in 1:10:01 (an average of 5:21 miles) and a mere 21 seconds later came second-place finisher Brett Morley of Greenville, SC, in 1:10:22. The last podium spot went to third-place finisher Andris Goncarovs of Greensboro, NC, in 1:13:22. “It felt great. The course was nice,” said Kibowen, who admitted that he had never raced in the United States. It was fantastic. It was a dream for me to race in the United States. Kibowen discovered the Humana Rock 'n' Roll Raleigh Marathon after an internet search. “I've always heard of the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series races. They are famous,” he said. In the marathon event, Estuardo Novales of Guatemala prevailed with repeat 6-minute miles in 2:36:58. Second and third place went to Jonathan McGinnis (2:41:10) of Rock Hill, SC, and Ryan Parrish (2:42:08), of Fulshear, TX, respectively. “It's an incredible feeling,” Novales said of his win. “It's only my second win in America.” Novales attended NC State back in 2002 and 2003 and said he was familiar with parts of the Raleigh course. “I told myself today that I may take second or third, but wasn't too sure I could actually win. But anything can happen with a 26.2-mile run. I'm very happy for my family. My wife, who is pregnant, could not come with me on this trip, but I thought about her today.” Stephanie Knast of Philadelphia won the women's race in 2:56:20. Second place went to Kimberly Stoveld 3:09:57, also from Philly. Third place was awarded to Sarah Getty (3:13:47). Knast said the race was a challenge. “My quads almost gave out, “said Knast, who set a personal best. “I thought I was going to pull out, but I pushed through.” Elite results aside, Sunday's race in Raleigh was an incredible party with good times all around. The alternative hit-band Cracker took to the stage at the Red Hat Amphitheater at the end of the race to give participants and their families something to dance to at the finish line festival. 2017 Race Results http://www.runrocknroll.com/finisher-zone/search-and-results/?eventid=48 Name, Age, Hometown, Time, Prize Men's Marathon Estuardo Novales, 35, Guatemala, 2:36:58, $500 Jonathan McGinnis, 28, Rock Hill, SC, 2:41:10 Ryan Parrish, 38, Fulshear, TX, 2:42:08 Christian Noergaard Niels, 33, Denmark, 2:43:55 George Oliver, 23, Winston Salem, NC, 2:45:15 Women's Marathon Stephanie Knast, 27, Philadelphia, PA, 2:56:20, $500 Kimberly Stoveld, 28, Philadelphia, PA, 3:09:57 Sarah Getty, 34, Maple Grove, MN, 3:13:47 Maleah Pinyan, 28, Salisbury, NC, 3:18:10 Emily Haggerty, 21, Sewell, NJ, 3:18:16 Men's Half Marathon Edwin Kibowen, 36, Kenya, 1:10:01, $250 Brett Morley, 24, Greenville, SC, 1:10:22 Andris Goncarovs, 24, Greensboro, NC, 1:13:22 Omer Abdulrahman, 29, Raleigh, NC, 1:13:55 Logan Desouza, 25, Durham, NC, 1:18:13 Women's Half Marathon Nicole Esplin, 24, West End, NC, 1:21:55, $250 Tereza Novotna, 24, Raleigh, NC, 1:23:28 Holly Clarke, 25, San Francisco, CA, 1:23:59 Amelia Shea, 26, Charlotte, NC, 1:27:16 Allison Mycek, 23, Raleigh, NC, 1:31:07

WASHINGTON, D.C. Stanley Kebenei And Hiwot Gebrekidan Win 2017 Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run Washington, DC - For the second year in a row, a naturalized American citizen has won the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run. Twenty-seven year-old Stanley Kebenei, from Oakland, California, the April 2nd race in a time of 46:36. Twenty-one year-old Hiwot Gebrekidan of Ethiopia took the women’s title in a time of 53:37. On a breezy, but otherwise perfect day for running by all of the major Washington, DC landmarks, record times eluded both Kebenei and Gebrekidan in the city’s 45th “Runner’s Rite of Spring,” the second event on the 2016-17 Professional Road Running Organization (PRRO) Circuit. Kebenei made a late-breaking move in the final quarter mile of the race to win. Kebenei, who was born in Kenya and became a U.S. citizen in 2014, bested Kenyan James Kibet - 46:35 to 46:39 - after trailing his rival for much of the tenth mile. Just as he did at last weekend’s IAAF World Cross Country Championships, during the opening miles, Kebenei led the frontpack, but ultimately decided to let others press the pace instead. Discussing his strategy in post-race interviews, Kibenei said: “If I go, these guys will finish me. I had to be smart. Sometimes you have to test the race; you want to know who is strong and who is ready to go.” By mile seven, the lead pack still consisted of 12 runners, including Kebenei, and it appeared to be anyone’s race. Shortly after the leaders hit mile nine, Kibet made a big move, putting 10-yards of real estate between himself, Kebenei and the rest of the pack. “I had to be smart,” Kebenei told himself, “I knew for sure that I still had this race, but I had to be smart. I knew if I kick [closer to the end], I could out kick him.” Over the course of the final mile, Kebenei slowly crept up to Kibet, passing him decisively within sight of the finish line. “It was a good day for me, and a good day for the United States, because America won,” a jubilant Kebenei declared, adding “I’ll be back next year.” Eight of the 12 runners who were in the lead pack at mile seven finished within 12 seconds of each other. Kebenei took home a total of $13,000 in prize money for his effort - $8,000 for the overall victory and $5,000 for being the first American - while Kibet won $4,000. The third place finisher was Ethiopian Birhan Nebebew-Tesfaye, who ran 46:42 to win $2,000. Rounding out the men’s top-ten: Kenyans Evans Kurui, Philemon Cheboi, Dominic Korir and Edwin Rotich placed fourth through seventh in times of 46:43, 46:43, 46:45 and 46:46, winning $1,500, $1,000, $900 and $800, respectively; Christo Landry crossed the line in 46:48 to place eighth overall and second American, winning a total $3,200 ($700 and $2,500), while another American, Kiya Dandena, placed ninth in 46:58 to win $2,100 ($600 and $1,500); Kenyan Philip Langat also ran 46:58 to win $500 and finish 10th. With developmental prize money being paid to the top-10 American finishers, the following men - in addition to Kebenei, Landry and Dandena - took home paychecks today: Luke Puskedra (47:57) won $1,000 as fourth American; Sean Keveren (48:23) won $800; top local runner from Arlington, VA, Ryan Mahalsky (48:26) won $600; Tim Young (48:29) won $400; Tyler McCandless (48:32) won $300; Eric Fernandez (48:40) won $200; and Nicholas Kipruto (49:16) won $200.

As close as the men’s race was, the women’s top-ten saw big gaps separate all but the fourth and fifth place runners. Gebrekidan threw down the gauntlet at seven miles, and ran away from the field to win $8,000. Last year’s second place finisher, Ethiopian Buze Diriba, placed second again in a time of 53:52 to win $4,000. Rounding out the women’s top-ten were: Kenyan Gladys Kipsoi (54:36) who won $2,000; the 2014 winner from Ethiopia, Mamitu Daska (54:45), who won $1,500; Karolina Nadolska, from Poland, who closely followed Daska in 54:48 to win $1,000; Ethiopian Firehiwot Dado Tufa, who won $900 for her 55:16 effort; first American Tara Welling (55:34), who took home a total of $5,800 ($800 for seventh place, $5,000 in developmental funds); Nancy Nzisa, from Kenya (55:57), who won $700; second American woman Hannah Davidson (55:59), who won $3,100 total ($600 and $2,500); and 10th overall and third American Susanna Sullivan (56:12), who won $2,000 ($500 and $1,500). American developmental prize money was also paid to: Katie Kellner (57:27), in the amount of $1,000; Mary Dell (57:35), who won $800; Ashley Brasovan (57:41), who won $600; Nicolette Mateescu (58:02), who won $400; Katheryne Potter, who also ran 58:02 ($300); top local runner Julia Roman-Duval, from Columbia, MD, who won $200; and another local runner from Washington, DC, Kerry Allen (58:49), who took home $200. Other notable finishers included 59-year-old Olympic Gold Medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson, who won the 55-59 year-old age group in a time of 1:03:55, a new age group record; the women’s winner of the first Cherry Blossom Run in 1973, Kathrine Switzer, who also won her age group (7074) in a time of 1:30:31; 40-year-old 2004 Olympian Carrie Tollefson, yet another age group winner (40-44) in a time of 1:04:48; four-time winner, 70year-old Bill Rodgers, who placed second in the 70-74 age group in 1:19:15; and 67-year-old Ben Beach, who has now finished every Cherry Blossom Run - 45 in all - this time running 1:34:18. In addition to the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile, there was a 5K Run-Walk held today. Winners were 29-year-old Iber Gonzalez Vidals, from New York City (17:58), and 33-year-old Lisa Gallagher, from Washington, DC (21:15). Complete, searchable results for both the 10-mile and 5K events are available at www.CherryBlossom.org. Over 27,000 runners submitted applications to participate in the 2017 Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile and 5K Run-Walk, and the list of accepted runners represents all 50 states and 14 foreign countries. The event is limited to 16,000 finishers by the National Park Service. The 2017 event marked the 16th year of title sponsorship by Credit Union Miracle Day. Since 2002, over $8 million has been raised for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
