This Running Life Kindred Spirits Connect for Running Great Distances to Help Others Just after 5 p.m. on May 4, Rebecca Moxey was on the phone, calling in from the road after she and five other runners had checked into a Rocky Mount hotel for the night. They had completed the first 50 miles of a 170-mile journey across North Carolina, and she was feeling good, despite having run through several hard rainstorms. Their journey had started in Roanoke Rapids, a former mill town of 15,700 residents that sits along I-95 about eight miles south of the Virginia border in Eastern North Carolina. They were running south, on country roads that hugged the interstate, heading to Surf City where they would celebrate their own triumphs over mental illness and addiction and shine a light to help others. Growing up in Atlanta, Moxey had survived a harrowing childhood, suffering at the hands of a violent, alcoholic father, who was a prominent, well-known doctor. Her family kept this terrible family secret so close to their hearts, even after his suicide; neither their friends, nor the public knew what went on behind closed doors. Moxey, who was 18 and already a single mother when he died, didn’t even learn the true cause of his death for many months. “My family hid his suicide, and I didn’t learn the truth about his death until two years after he killed himself,” she said. By the time Moxey was 22, she was using alcohol to self-medicate. Her go-to drink was wine, and she described days hiding in her basement, drinking and trying to escape her demons. She married, expanded her family and continued to drink until 10 years ago, when she checked herself into a rehabilitation facility for 28 days. She came out clean, and at 55, while she still suffers from PTSD and anxiety, she no longer uses alcohol to soothe her pain. “I was completely broken and on my way to certain death, but I was able to get out of it and break the cycle that started with my father’s abuse,” she said. Taking baby steps, Moxley, who was always athletic, turned to running to help her cope during her rehabilitation. She started by going for short jogs on the facility’s grounds, and eventually she was running laps around the buildings. After her discharge, she expanded her activity, running, swimming and biking her way to two Ironman finishes. Along

the way she met other moms who have struggled, and they formed Team Inspire. They all live near Wilmington and train together. In an interview with television station WWAY of Wilmington, Moxey said “for more than five years, the ladies of Team Inspire have been quietly helping each other through a variety of very difficult and emotional issues – mental and physical illness, addiction, PTSD, and suicide, to name a few. Now, our hope has grown so we want to share it with others. We will have a running dialogue as we cross the state holding out our hands so others may grasp them.” Last summer, Pam Rickard, a recovering alcoholic from Roanoke, Virginia, joined five ultra-marathon runners who had also suffered with mental illness and substance abuse and ran across the United States, from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. where they appeared on a panel discussion at the Mental Health America Annual Conference on June 8, 2016. They named their run “Icebreaker” and used the opportunity to break through the stigma of mental health and addiction, and to invite others to tell their stories. The run was sponsored by The Herren Project, founded as a way to help others by NBA basketball player Chris Herren who also suffered from addiction. Rickard, 55, a longtime alcoholic with three DWI convictions, a term in jail and a stint in a rehabilitation center under her belt, was a decade into her recovery when she completed the 3,100-mile journey. She describes herself as a high functioning alcoholic who managed to complete seven marathons and qualify for the Boston Marathon five times during the years she was drinking. Sober since 2007, she has now run more than 65 marathons and ultra-marathons, including the week-long adventure race across the Gobi Desert in China, and a

100K trek through the Alps from Italy to France. Today, she is on the staff of the Herren Project, and builds racing teams to raise money to help those suffering from addiction take the first steps toward recovery through educational programs and setting examples. At one of her Ironman events, Moxey met Charlie Engel, a world-class ultramarathon runner who struggled through a troubled past and uses his experience to help others. He is the subject of a documentary, “Running the Sahara,” and recently released “Running Man,” a memoir chronicling his record-breaking run across the Sahara Desert and how running helped him overcome his drug addiction. Engel suggested Moxey reach out to Rickard. In Rickard, Moxey found a kindred spirit, and the two hit it off immediately. Last spring, when the Icebreaker team rambled through North Carolina, Moxey left her Wilmington home and drove until she connected with them and shared a few miles. From that moment, Moxey nurtured a burning desire to stage a similar run across North Carolina, and last fall, she called upon Team Inspire to brainstorm the possibilities. They first discussed running from the mountains to the coast, but realized they would not be able to spare the time away from their families and jobs. “We’re all working moms,” Moxey explained. “And we’re not speed demons either. The faster women run about a 10minute mile pace. Others run about 12 minutes a mile.” So they chose their 170-mile route from Roanoke Rapids to Surf City and reckoned if they could take turns running and cover 50 miles a day for three days, that would leave 20 miles for the fourth and final day. Each runner completed two or three legs of five miles each every day. They did not run at night. The team started out with six runners: Christine Whiteley, Dana Clark Little, Caryn Sutton, Jessica Clark Blackburn and Kimberly Martin, whose husband, Chris Martin, was one of the original Icebreaker runners. Rita Manley and Elethia Osborne joined the troupe along the way, and as they neared the finish line, other runners joined in until their num-

Running Psychology The Development of Mental Toughness Runners and coaches often talk about the importance of mental toughness, yet few do any form of specific mental training in order to improve mental toughness. It's like saying you need to get in better shape physically, yet you fail to do any physical training. If being mentally tough is so important for runners, then why is so little done to actually improve mental toughness? Maybe the biggest factor for runners and coaches not being able to train mental toughness is they don't comprehend what mental toughness consists of. Think about it, can you actually define mental toughness? The words “Mental Toughness� can be heard countless times in any sport context, yet there is no one set definition of what mental toughness actually means. It's hard to work on something if you don't know what to work on! If you were to review the Sport Psychology literature you would find there are many, many definitions and descriptors for mental toughness. I certainly don't want to bore you with countless academic renditions of what mental tough is or isn't, so how about getting down to the nitty gritty of some possible foundational constructs of

By Richard Ferguson, Ph.D.

mental toughness? Just like building a house, to build mental toughness you must have a solid foundation. If certain mental building blocks are present then you can build many mental skills on top of them in the future. From my perspective there are indeed foundational building blocks that all runners need if they are to be mentally tough. The first of these building blocks is selfconfidence. An unending belief in the self is almost a necessity for running to your potential. When you have confidence in your ability you tend to be more motivated and when failure does occur, you bounce

back from it readily. Setbacks are viewed as learning opportunities and a way to get better. Confidence is not about believing you will always win or run fast every time out. Confidence is about believing you have the capability to run well every time out. Sure, there are going to be days when you are less than your best, but if you have true confidence you can keep the bad run in perspective and be motivated for the next hard workout or race. Another part of the mental toughness foundation has got to be high motivation. Do you really like to run and do you really want to be your best? Motivation can be either intrinsic or extrinsic. If you run because you love it, then you're probably intrinsically motivated. If you run just to get some award or prize, then you may be extrinsically motivated. It would appear that intrinsically motivated runners stick with the sport longer, get more enjoyment from running and actually run closer to their potential. Why? Intrinsically motivated runners don't have to be prodded or coerced to get out and run. When you love to do something it's not work, its fun! Much has also been written about how giving extrinsic rewards, like trophies and merchandise, can actually undermine intrinsic motivation. So again, do you simply LOVE to run? Think about how much you would miss it if you couldn't! Each and every day cultivate your intrinsic motivation for running. To be a mentally tough runner means you must be able to concentrate and focus, both during running and in everyday life. Learning to live and run in the present is a valuable mental skill. When running, it's important to learn to monitor your body and the feedback it's providing you. The best runners associate during running, which means they are very much in tune with the level of exertion they feel and also the level of discomfort they feel. By learning to focus on your body you are better able to maintain proper pace and not go into anaerobic energy production during long races. In everyday life it's important to keep your focus on your running goals, which means eating a sound nutritional diet, getting plenty of sleep and not wasting emotional energy on daily stressors that are out of your control. The final foundational component of mental toughness is the ability to deal with pressure. Pressure can be the expectations you place upon yourself or pressure can be the expectations you interpret from others. In reality pressure comes from within the runner. Running is not a life or death activity. If you run well or run poorly you will still wake up the next day and life will go

on. However, you really want to do your best and reach your running goals, plus you often internalize that family, friends and other runners are expecting you to meet some time or race place standard. You feel pressure to run well! This self-internalized pressure can create debilitating anxiety and greatly diminish the pleasure you get from running. Remember to keep your running in perspective. Keep in mind that if you do your absolute best each time out then you have been successful no matter your time or race place. Pressure is a result of your perceptions! To reduce pressure, change your perceptions. Learn to run free of expectations and go for your absolute best. Use each of these building blocks as the foundation for building your mental toughness. By working each day on each of the building blocks you will become more mentally tough. So just how can you build upon your mental toughness foundation? Here are a few ideas! Work to simulate race experiences during your hard workouts. The more intense competitive practice you have the more mentally tough you will become. That's why most team sports try to scrimmage in game-like situations as much as possible. Mental toughness developed in hard training will transfer into racing. Every single day do something to build your confidence. Focus on the positives in your running and be your own biggest supporter. Try not to dwell on poor workouts and races. Learn from them and let them go. Also, enlist the help of others to build your confidence. Be sure your family and friends are behind you and encourage you each day as you strive to meet your running goals. Having significant others as confidence builders can be invaluable, especially during the few inevitable times when you might question your ability and motivation levels. Try to identify other runners who are mentally tough and learn from them. Observe them and ask them questions. When you learn from others in this manner it's called participatory modeling. Also, use positive visualization to enhance your mental toughness. See yourself being mentally tough in your training and racing. The brain really can't tell the difference in an image and in reality. To be mentally tough, think and image being mentally tough! Accept the need to be mentally tough and use the foundations to aid in the development of mental toughness. Continue to explore ways to enhance mental toughness and commit to practicing the mental skills that enhance mental toughness.

Down the Road

CELEBRATE 20 YEARS RUNNING

A Cautionary Tale Warning: This is a terrible article I wish I never had to write. It happened at this year's Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC. Unfortunately it is a true story. I hope you will read it and make sure that it doesn't happen to you. While the race was still going on, and I was interviewing race finishers, a friend, Randy Brown, who is a medic and was helping the medical team near the finish line, came rushing up to me and asked if I had heard the bad news. He told me a man had fallen about 100 feet before crossing the finish line. They rushed right to him, and realized he had suffered a heart attack. They treated and rushed him to the medical tent and could not resuscitate him. He had died from the attack. Then they pulled his race number off of him and he had not written anything on the backside where runners are asked to fill in medical information and contact information in case of an emergency. So they went to Burns Computer who was doing the timing and had them scan in the race number to get his information. The information of the person who had registered and been assigned the race number didn't seem to match. It said this was a 40-year-old male when the medical team had a man who appeared to be in his 60s. Apparently someone had sold or given this number to another person, and that instead of paying the $10 transfer fee to have the number reassigned to himself, had simply pinned on the number and run the race using that number. Picture yourself at a large race with over 30,000 participants in a town which is not your hometown where it is unlikely you would be recognized by many people - or possibly by anyone, and you have a medical problem and cannot tell anyone who you are or who to contact. Was his wife or family waiting for him in a hotel? Did he get the number from someone he knew? The race officials were finally able to contact the person to whom the number was assigned, and fortunately he knew that the man was from North Carolina, was 68 years old, and his name. I will not mention his name here for privacy reasons. Do you fill out the contact information on race bibs? Do you make sure to have identification on your person? I know that Kathy and I always had that - we had purchased the military style dog tags and always wore them at races or anytime when we were running. They had the advantage of listing address, hometown, state, blood type and emergency contact

number on them. Also they don't have the possibility of the information being sweated or washed off on a hot or rainy day. Make sure that you can be identified and treated if something unforeseen happens to you when you are running or racing. A heart attack or other accident or misfortune could happen to anyone. This example is something that did happen, and could only have been worse if the actual owner of the race number had not known and had information on the man who died. Always prepare for the worst and hope for the best. But be cautioned, take precautions and run safely now and always.

Running Through the Bluegrass Louisville Triple Crown, Success and Disappointment I should start from the beginning - or at least close to it. My first half-marathon was the Kentucky Derby Festival miniMarathon in 2007, just a month shy of my one-year running anniversary. I was couch-to-5kto-10k-to-10 mile-to-13.1 in 12 months. Ten years ago, I lined up for the miniMarathon wearing bib 772. I ran 1:46:36 for 149th female; they used to give out Top 100 prizes, and I really wanted one. This year, I was in the elite field for the same race - and assigned bib 72. It felt like a homecoming. But for a few weeks leading up to the race, I'd been in a funk physically and, mostly, mentally. I shouldered feelings of imposter syndrome following my first sub-3 marathon last year, and I was feeling discouraged after my races this spring, including the Triple Crown I wrote about last month. Where was the girl who ran 2:57? Who ran fearlessly, not stressing about the numbers on her watch but being one with her effort? Who chased down competitors and didn't give up when workouts and races got hard? I struggled with speed workouts, either not hitting the paces I expected of myself, or needing extra rest. But really, I was running fine. Mostly, I was guilty of letting my expectations drift higher than my abilities, despite knowing I shouldn't. I wrote to my coach just shy of two weeks ago, asking, "So the question I'm asking myself is, why do I feel like I'm running badly when logically I'm not?� I could see it in my logs. I was putting in the work - a lot of 60+ mile weeks this year and four weeks that were 65+. Solid race performances, even though they weren't breakthroughs. Not every race can be a breakthrough. This is to say, I had put a lot of pressure on myself. The week before the miniMarathon, I ran my first-ever 5000 on the track. And I had fun! I didn't look at my watch, which wasn't a great strategy for running a fast time, but it helped me dial back into myself and to find that feeling of being one with the effort - of flowing. I stepped off the track without a PR, but with a renewed confidence that was worth much more. I felt ready. Race day started at 5:45 a.m. Storms overnight had awakened me, and they were still threatening. It was humid and warm, already in the low 70s. I was at the race about an hour before the start, killing

time on social media in my car when I saw the announcement. Race delayed 30 minutes. Another round of storms was about to hit, possibly bringing inch-sized hail. Around 7:15 I took a gel (the only breakfast I planned on) and Hammer's Fully Charged pre-workout. I started warming up around 7:20. Race delayed by 30 minutes, again. This time they told us to take shelter immediately - they cleared the entire

starting area, some 13,000 people. Everyone scrambled to find an open building or get back to their car or a parking garage. The sky looked sinister, but it passed just to the north. At 8:11, I started another warmup. I went out a half mile and started heading back. Race delayed 30 minutes, for the third time. The new start time was 9 a.m., although it ended up being 9:10 before they could get everyone back to the start line. I was carrying another gel for mid-race, but with my stomach starting to growl, I took it in the corral. It started raining right before the gun sounded. My race plan for the first 5 miles was to relax and assess - figure out what impact the weather would have on my pace, and adjust. Rain in the first few miles cooled it down, but it went back to being humid and hot soon into the race.

I focused on settling into a rhythm and not fretting about the pace or heart rate. I wasn't concerned in the early miles about girls being ahead of me. A day like this is a day you know people will come back to you if you run your plan and be smart. In the second 5 miles, my plan was to count plusses and minuses. Passing someone is plus one; getting passed is minus 1. This helps me stay in the race mentally, and give me something to think about. I started working my way up to a large pack, reeling in a few guys along the way. A big section of crowd support with music at mile 6 was a nice boost. Nearly halfway and feeling good. On a long straight stretch, I could see two girls ahead of me. I had the fire, this time, to track them down. I caught them both between miles 8 and 9. Then I dumped Powerade in my hair. The volunteers had switched the cup order! I got passed by two guys in this 5 mile segment, but that was it. Plus caught two girls. But with 5k to go, the wheels started coming off. The field was really strung out and I could see guys up ahead but there wasn't anyone around me. Fortunately I was still running past people I knew and getting cheers, which kept me going. I put my head down and went to work. I stopped looking at my pace and just ran. The crowd support is starting to pick up and I'm chasing down the two guys who had passed me. I use a turn to see if I can see any other girls trailing me. I see literally nobody. At mile 13, we make one last turn and I kick for all I've got on the downhill final stretch. I can see the clock ticking up to 1:26. I keep pushing until I cross the line, hands thrown up. Not because I ran the best race of my life, but because I ran my legs out, ran my heart out. I proved to myself I still had the fight that I did in the fall. Officially, I finished in 1:25:53, 10th female, 50th overall. Not only did I earn the top 100 ranking I wanted a decade ago, but I won it in the men's division! My goal had been 1:25 flat, and think I would've had it if we had started on time and the weather had been a tad more cooperative. Most importantly, I ran a race I'm proud of.

Ultra Running The Effects of Age and Lack of Training in Running Decline Age (and lack of training) can humble a person. We all age. No matter how many good performances we have in us, at some point we have run our last PR, and we begin looking at best recent performances or.... age group PRs. We seldom recognize, at the time, that some event was in actuality our last hurrah! Age (and lack of training) takes over. Bill Rodgers will never run another sub 2:10 marathon. He will never run another sub 2:20. Yainnis Kouros will never run another sub 12-hour 100 mile, 170 24-hour or 600-mile six day. I will never run another sub 6 hour 50 mile, or 220-mile 48 hour. I will probably never run another 200-mile 48 hour. Wait a minute, where did that "probably" come from. Did it belong in those earlier proclamations? Could Kouros run another 600-mile six-day? Might Rodgers run another 2:20 marathon? Is it possible that I might see another 200-mile 48 hour? Age (and lack of training) say no, these things will not happen. But what if? There is nothing any of us can do about age. The clock ticks on, relentlessly. Yet, we remem-

ber Ed Whitlock who ran sub 3 hour marathons in his 70s. Now in my early 60s, I just ran a 5:11 marathon at Boston. This would have been dismaying had I not run a 4:43 marathon en route to a 50 miler a few weeks earlier. Age did not contribute to that rapid decline, lack of training did. Whitlock happened to be retired by the time he ran his phenomenal times. This allowed him to establish and stick to a solid training program. Rodgers, a former teacher, was able to earn his living by running related activities, giving him ample time to establish and stick to a solid training program. Kouros was well known for his

carefully measured and meted out training program. Age (and lack of training) make the racing, particularly the competitive aspect (even within oneself), more difficult. This difficulty, and lack of success leads to discouragement, and a gradual "lack of effort." Yep, most runners quit on themselves before age (and lack of training) make disappointing results absolutely necessary. Training becomes harder as we age. Pace becomes more difficult to maintain. Competitive efforts take more focus. If success truly breeds success than it can be assumed that lack of success creates a downward spiral, and cessation, of most activities. Some athletes are content with the gradual decline, even when their own activities, or lack of, contribute to such decline. Others leave their respective sports. Declining performances can hasten the departure from an activity, or be accepted as inevitable, with "the best I can do" being accepted as a way to remain participatory. Does this have to be true? What would happen if Rodgers broke out

13.1 miles – Coastal 5K – Doggie Dash

his logs from 1980 and matched every run as closely as he could in time and distance? I would say the distance should be run, and the times matched as closely as possible. If he ran 100% of the miles at even 20% slower than at his peak what would his racing look like? Twenty percent added to a 2:10 marathon would be 2:36, yet somehow I feel Rodgers would be faster than that. What would happen if I ran 500-600 mile months, as I did in my prime? I have some months, most to be honest, that are less than my best weeks of my "youth." I make the excuse that there is not enough time, but I know better. For most runners, priorities change. Excuses and reasons exist, but the bottom line is that each of us make choices every day that affect outcomes. Few people train as runners used to. I read recently that in 1990 there were 267 American runners who broke 2:20 for the marathon. In 2016 only about 40 did this. What if everyone, regardless of age, utilized a solid training program? For myself, I'd like to find out. Now, if I could just make that a priority.

EAT WELL, RUN WELL

Females, Food & Fertility Don’t let “Yea, I stopped getting my period!!! That means I’m training really hard and am finally thin enough. “ “Yea, I’m glad I don’t have to deal with that monthly hassle any more.” “Yea, now I don’t have to worry about getting pregnant!” Freedom from monthly menstrual periods has historically brought pride and pleasure to many female runners. That is, until they experience infertility when they do want to get pregnant. To their misfortune, many of the same women who were very content having abnormally functioning bodies are now in a state of grief. For some, this is the first time their bodies are not doing what they want them to do: get pregnant! As Gigi Fernandez, Grand Slam tennis player stated, “As an athlete, you have this attitude, ‘I can do anything with my body.’ That’s how you think. So your biological clock is ticking, but you’re in denial.” She had seven failed fertility treatments. Infertility in athletic women is a secret source of grief that hides in many couples’ closets. Infertility affects 1 in 6 women. An estimated 12% of those with infertility are athletes (1). If you are in the childbearing season of your life, are coaching a women’s running team, or have a Millennial daughter, you likely know one or more athletic women who are struggling to conceive. A Norwegian study with about 4,000 women identified two groups who had trouble conceiving: #1. Women who trained every day, 11% of whom had fertility problems. This is three times more women than those who did not train at all. #2. Women who trained until they were completely exhausted, 24% of whom had fertility problems. This is a 2.3 times more women than those who did low intensity exercise. The women who did both—trained every day and trained to exhaustion—had the highest rates of infertility (2) Many women fit into that category: marathoners, gym rats, triathletes, elite soccer players, and fitness enthusiasts. Some of those active women may be simultaneously building their careers and choosing to delay starting a family. They may be unaware that fertility peaks at age 25, with diminishing returns year by year. By the time a woman is 40, her chances of getting pregnant without fertility treatments are far lower. What girls and women need to know Amenorrhea (loss of menses) is a cause of concern, not a reason to celebrate Unfortunately, parents or running coaches are not teaching this fact to today’s high school girls. Or, the girls may not be really listening to the educational attempts. They are likely more interested in learning how to not get pregnant! The more relevant issue for this age group is that amenorrhea contributes to stress fractures. Yet, a 2014 survey indicates only 17% of 240 female high school athletes knew that amenorrhea makes bones weak. Only 25% knew that girls who skip their periods are prone to getting stress fractures. And 72% didn’t even know that amenorrhea is abnormal (3). Despite popular belief, amenorrhea does not happen because a woman is training hard or has low body fat. After all, many female runners are very lean, train very hard and do have regular periods. Runners with amenorrhea fail to eat enough to support both exercise and menses. Add stress and perhaps other contributing factors, and Nature halts the possibility of a woman getting pregnant. You might think these under-fueled female runners would be very skinny and losing weight. Not always the case. When a woman is leaner than her genetic blueprint (as are many athletic women), her body has an amazing ability to conserve energy. Symptoms include cold hands and feet, slow heart rate, lethargy, and amenorrhea. No surprise an estimated 65% to 69% of competitive long distance runners and dancers have amenorrhea compared to 2% to 5% of the general population (4). And even if an athletic woman does have regular menses, she may not ovulate or have normal levels of reproductive hormones. This happens unknowingly in more than 75% of highly trained and recreational

athletes. CAUTION: Some runners have become pregnant on the belief amenorrhea is a convenient form of birth control. False. Women ovulate two weeks before they menstruate. If they just happen to be ovulating (fertile) prior to resuming menses, they can end up pregnant. No Period. Now What? Female runners who have stopped getting a monthly menstrual period or are having trouble conceiving may need help reversing the situation. The simple advice to “just eat a little more and exercise a little less” to correct the energy imbalance is much easier said than done. Amenorrhea is commonly wrapped up in disordered eating patterns. An estimated 20% to 60% of female athletes have a complicated relationship with food. They fear that eating more will lead to “getting fat,” hurting athletic performance, and losing their identity of being petite. Not the case. Eating adequate fuel gets the body out of hibernation (warmer hands, more energetic, happier, better mood), restores wasted muscles and allows well-fueled muscles to perform better How much more does a woman have to eat? At least 13.5 calories per pound of lean body weight that she does not burn off with purposeful exercise. For a woman who weighs 120 pounds and has 18% body fat, that’s 102 lbs. lean weight x 13.5 cal/lb — about 1,400 calories. Now add in another 500 or so calories for a hard workout, and you can understand why a 1,200-calorie diet can hinder fertility. A sports dietitian can help correct this imbalance, as well as help female athletes find peace with food.

THIS RUNNING LIFE CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 bers had swelled to nearly 20 runners and a tiny kitten they had rescued from the side of a busy roadway. They ran all the way to the ocean where they paid their respects to Tanner Jones, a young local surfer who struggled with depression before his death last year. In his memory, friends had created a shrine of sorts. Its center piece is a cross covered in lights and beaded necklaces, emblazoned with a tiny surfboard plaque, and surrounded by candles and flowers. Tanner’s family was there to welcome the runners. The event ended with a finish line party at a nearby park. Rickard was there. She had driven five hours, all the way from her home in Roanoke, just to run the last few miles to the finish line with Team Inspire. “I am super proud of all of them,” Rickard said, hugging Moxey. This was the first Icebreaker run since last summer, and Rickard hopes it won’t be the last. While spawning cross country runs is not part of The Herren Project’s mission, Rickard said she would love to see similar runs grow organically across the United States. “This is more than just a fun run down the road,” she said. “I’d love to see it turned into a movement.” Through it all, Team Inspire raised $5,000 for the event. After they pay their expenses, they’ll donate the profits to The

Distance Memories Proud of Pushing the Limits With Darkside Running Club It started out almost as a joke. 'The Darkside' as we called ourselves in the mid-1990's when Al Barker, Valerie Howard and I started running weekly 20-milers so we would be 'marathon ready' year round. While all of the other runners in town were eating pancakes or getting ready for church after their six or eight mile Sunday morning runs, the three of us were still on the trails doing what we liked to do best. In 2002 the three of us, along with Kelly Murzynsky, Paula May and Sue Bozgoz decided to form the Darkside Running Club. I was selected (not elected, but selected) to be President. Little did I know at the time the title of President also bestowed upon me the duties of the Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Newsletter Editor, Race Director. Volunteer Coordinator and essentially any other job that needed to be done at any given time. Over time the club - primarily via word of mouth - took on additional members and during the winter of 2017 we welcomed our 500th member - or 'Darksiders' as we prefer to be called. I always said that when our club membership reached 500 it would be time for a new President, although truth be known I've been searching for a new President for the past two years. Coincidentally, one of our members stepped forward to take over as President at just

By Scott Ludwig

about the same time we welcomed our 500th Darksider. I'm guessing karma had a little something to do with it. As of July 1, 2017 Joye McElroy will assume the Presidency of the Darkside Running Club. Joye has asked me to stay close in an unofficial capacity, to which I agreed … as long as I'm referred to as President Emeritus. (Note: I was half kidding when I mentioned it, but when she agreed I thought it sounded sort of cool. So I'm using it. Try and stop me.) Whatever the case, after more than 15 years directing the club I was part of putting together, it's going to be a little hard for me to let go. I know what you're thinking: “Baby steps.” That's probably how it will be, and I'm good with that. But it won't be the same.

Inspired Daily Crossing That Fine Line In December 2014, my column titled Tales of a Recovering Over Racer started out like this: “Addiction is a powerful thing. I am not sure exactly when it happened but suddenly I found myself wanting to run all the races! Between the Celebration Marathon in January and Boston Marathon in April, I raced nine times and even joined a new running club just so I could compete in their racing series.” Then towards the end of the column I mentioned how later in the year I took 11 weeks off from racing to focus solely on training for a key race and admitted “I am not sure if my addiction is racing, adrenalin, competition, or some combination.” The column finished with “it took one great race preceded by many weeks of patience, listening to my body, and good training in addition to some serious willpower to stop over racing.” Relapse 2017. History has repeated itself. I overraced again during my Boston training. I ran nine races again with two in January, four in February, two in March, and one in April on top of trying a higher mileage training plan for Boston. This was a pretty big jump in mileage for me. I had a couple of 70+ mile weeks on top of many 50-60 mile weeks. I probably could have handled the higher mileage, but combined with all the racing I was exhausted week after week

with nagging little pains popping up in the hamstring, quad, and ankle in addition to the ongoing Achilles issue. The exhaustion was so bad that I was unable to maintain the strength training that has worked so well for me the past two years. About four to five weeks out from Boston there were mornings when I struggled to get out of bed. Earlier this year I had bloodwork done which included testing my Iron and Vitamin D, so I knew the fatigue was caused by the training, racing, and never quite enough sleep. I began to worry if I had reached a point of over training so I took several extra rest days over a two-week period which started my taper two weeks earlier than planned. I had already cut out all strength training weeks prior to that. I reached out to my coach who was honest with

After directing well over 100 Darkside events, publishing 63 issues (totaling more than 4,000 pages) of absolutely true … Takes from the DARKSIDE (our quarterly newsletter) and doing everything in my power to promote our running club to the rest of the world, it's going to be quite a change for me to step aside. I've enjoyed being in the driver's seat all of these years. Welcoming new members into the club, seeing so many runners doing things they never dreamed possible, introducing so many people to the sport of running and, best of all, promoting their accomplishments are the things that made being President of the Darkside Running Club so darn rewarding. I'm proud of what the Darkside Running Club represents: Setting your goals high, encouraging and supporting your fellow runners, never giving up or backing down from a challenge and doing things you always dreamed of doing but never thought possible. Best of all, it's the only running club I know of that essentially pays you to be a member. Allow me to explain: dues are $35 per family. There is nothing else to pay to be a member…ever. Any profits the club incurs (primarily through entry fees) is given back to the members through reduced entry fees to Darkside events, occasional stipends for sponsored races

and various other fringe benefits that you'd have to be a member to know about. I doubt you'll find another running club anything like it. If you do, chances are they borrowed their formula from us. Here's to many more years of pushing the limits of human endurance and making the impossible possible. Here's to many more years … of the Darkside Running Club. We're in it for the long run.

me about racing despite feeling this fatigue. I had only mentioned the one 10K where I felt tired and like my legs were dead. I hadn't mentioned the eight other races; probably because I knew I should not have run all of them. Coach reassured me that a longer taper would not hurt me as many marathon training plans use a longer taper. He also mentioned that I may have crossed that fine line of over training; actually, over reaching was the term he used when we discussed the jump in mileage from what I was used to in the advanced plan in the Hansons Marathon Method book (which I had used successfully many times) and this Boston specific 75 mile per week plan. The 2017 Boston Marathon did not go as well as I had hoped. The fatigue hit me hard at mile eight and I struggled from there to finish. Yes it was hot, and many people struggled, but I refused to accept heat as the reason for my poor finish. After much soul-searching, days and days of over analyzing my training, race weekend, and how I started the race, I finally reached out to my coach and was honest about all the racing I did. When he wrote back his concern about racing 50% of my training weeks, it really hit me. I knew I had raced a lot but to put it in those terms was eye opening. As George Sheehan so eloquently put it, “We are each an experiment of one,” and I enjoy trying new ways to train to find out what the most effective formula is for me. This time around, I discovered there is a fine line between high mileage that works for me and too much mileage, a fine line between cumulative fatigue and exhaustion, and a fine line between using races for speed work and over racing. I crossed that line and paid for it at Boston.

This was a hard learned lesson which has taken me many weeks to process, accept, and figure out how to move forward. Reading “It's the Process,” Richard Ferguson, Ph.D.'s Running Psychology column in the February 2017 issue of Running Journal helped me realize that I did not allow myself enough focus on the process (Boston training) because I was racing so much during those months. I was so focused on how I would do at Boston with this new higher mileage plan that I did not focus on the daily details of training and recovery.

Running Journal • June, 2017

Learning from the Young Guns Maintenance Workouts During Summer Racing In May of 2010, Chris Solinsky shocked the distance running world when he shattered the American record and became the first non-African runner to break 27 minutes for 10,000 meters. Solinksy went on to run a massive personal best at 5,000m in June, a time he surpassed again in August of that year. Solinsky’s coach, Jerry Schumacher, spoke in an interview about that summer and credited their approach of taking ample rest after each of his big performances that year to Solinsky’s ability to maintain such a high level of racing all summer. While we will never sniff 26:59 for 10,000m, the importance of rest is just as critical during the summer 5K/10K racing season. The ability to maintain, and even elevate fitness before and after races is predicated upon proper rest and recovery. It is easy to forget that if we are racing every 2-3 weeks during the spring and summer, those races serve the same training purpose as a high intensity workout. When planning training it’s important to account for that and avoid the temptation to squeeze in more high intensity speed work. This formula is tempting, but often results in burnout and decreased performance. One of the things I would speculate helped Chris Solinsky run so well throughout the summer was keeping moderate strength workouts in the equation, even during the racing season. The aerobic component provides the base for all training and if you eliminate that component, once you start racing the base begins to crumble, and it becomes very hard to sustain a high level for an extended period of time. The workouts below are particularly useful to incorporate during your summer racing season if you are racing every 2-3 weeks. You’ll notice most of these are sub-maximal efforts designed to ensure proper rest while maintaining your aerobic foundation and touching speeds at or faster than race pace to balance your preparation. Tempo Run: This is a tried and true staple for distance runners from milers to marathoners, but it is typically thought to be of use during the base building period or early in a training program when the focus is on building aerobic strength. However, incorporating a shorter tempo run every 2-3 weeks during your racing season is a great way to keep the aerobic component as part of the program without taxing yourself so much you have a hard

time recovering between races. Keep your tempo run no longer than 20-25 minutes during the racing season and target a pace that is about 10-15 seconds per mile slower than your 10k pace. After your tempo, take 4-5 minutes rest and finish with 4-8 repeats between 40-70 seconds at or a touch quicker than 5K pace with as much rest between them as you need to fully recover. This reinforces the muscle memory of finishing fast. 200-Meter Repeats: If you find yourself racing on back to back weekends, this is a good session to run during the middle of the week between races. You can do this workout on a track if you like, but you can just as easily do it on the road or trail and with time instead of distance. If you do the workout on the track run 8-10 repeats of 200 meters each with a very easy 200-meter jog between each. For the 200-meter repeats start them at roughly your 5K pace and work forward a little bit every 2-3 repeats. Focus on staying relaxed and smooth with good form, the idea is to finish feeling like you could have run faster. If you do them based on tim,e just make the recovery jog twice the time of the fast piece, for example, if you run quick for 45 seconds then jog easy for 90 seconds between each of them. This workout is a great way to stretch out the legs between hard race efforts and improve your mechanical efficiency without taxing the body in a way that makes it difficult to recover. Fartlek: Fartlek running is something that can be used to suit many needs and therefore can serve as a perfect maintenance workout during your racing season. This particular fartlek blends some light strength work with some quicker turnover work. Run 2-3 sets of (3 minutes quicker, 90 seconds easy recovery jog, 2 minutes quicker, 60 seconds easy recovery jog, 1 minute quicker, 3 minutes easy recovery jog). The 3 minute piece should start at or a few seconds per mile slower than your current 10K pace and then the 2 minute

piece should be 5-10 seconds per mile quicker with the 1 minute piece another 510 seconds per mile quicker than that. The recovery jog can be at your normal easy run pace or up to 30 seconds per mile slower. If you are running the workout a few days before a race, do 2 sets and if you are running it a week or more out aim for 3 sets. Tempo Intervals: Tempo intervals, or cruise intervals, compliment the racing season perfectly. They allow you to get in some quicker work without the taxing effort of a hard, race pace interval session. There are a variety of tempo interval distances you could use, but I would recommend between a quarter mile and 1 mile. One example workout would be 4-7x 1,000 meters (or you could use 4-5 minute intervals) with 90 seconds rest between each. Start this workout 7-10 seconds per mile slower than 10K pace and finish at 10K pace. You should finish feeling like you could do several more at the same pace. This workout gives you a moderate aerobic stimulus similar to the tempo run but at a quicker pace. During your race phase it is important to have your best performances on race day and not in workouts. Incorporate

After the Run Special Memories, Broken Records, and Tons of Ironman Fun On a sunny afternoon, a few weeks after moving to Lakeland, Florida in 2013, I found a shade tree immediately along the Ironman Florida 70.3 loop course in Haines City. Somewhat of a refuge from the mid-90-degree heat, I spread out a beach towel under the leaf-covered limbs and watched for my husband, Phil, to run by me as he started his half marathon portion of the day's triathlon. I could tell that he was hurting a bit from the heat on his second lap, so I sprung to my feet and joined him for a couple hundred yards. Because I do not swim, and I am not an outdoor cyclist, I imagined that this short run with Phil (along with my sidelinecheering during his participation in numerous triathlons), would likely be the extent of my Ironman participation. I was wrong. As I was logging some miles on a YMCA treadmill this February, my dad approached the revolving belt and casually said, “Hey, I signed you up for the Ironman Florida 70.3 Relay on April 9th, so you need to get a team together.”

Mary Marcia and Phil at 2013 Ironman Florida 70.3

By Mary Marcia Brown

What?!? Due to a seemingly relentless stint of injuries, I had not logged a run longer than 6 miles in a year and a half. I was up for the challenge, though. I immediately told my friend, Rachel, and asked if she would be interested in biking during the event. She was in. Twenty minutes later, I saw my friend, Amy, who I had not seen in quite some time, in the locker room getting ready to swim. I mentioned the event to her, and by the next day, she was in, too! The day was incredibly special. The tree where I had found shade while cheering

for Phil four years ago, still stood strong. Almost immediately beside the tree, fellow-runner and friend, Chris Ballesteros, held up a neon sign that read “Remember Phil Brown.” I thought about him every step of the way, and with each stride, I became prouder of all that he accomplished in his short 40 years. My teammates met me at the finish line of my half marathon, and together, we celebrated our Ironman victory. It was the first Ironman experience for each of us, and together, we made it happen, we made it special, we made it memorable, and we made it fun. Of course, while we were basking in the fun of the Ironman 70.3 relay, local fellow athletes and friends were breaking records and qualifying for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship as individual athletes. Rebecca Kimble began training with her coach and mentor, Robby Kniss, in 2015. Robby was training for Ironman Louisville with an impressive group of Lakeland athletes at the time, when Kimble and her training partner, Patty Schmaedeke, decided to join them for their long rides and weekend training sessions. “I rode more miles than I had ever ridden in my life that summer!” Kimble said. In September 2015, Kimble decided to sign up for her first full-distance Ironman event. Part of her training included Ironman Florida 70.3 and Lake Logan 70.3. In September 2016, she raced her first Ironman distance triathlon. “I finished in a time of 11:48:49 and

was 7th in my age group! I walked away from the race thinking that I would be 'one and done', but shortly afterward, I got the itch again and signed up for Ironman Louisville 2017,” she shared. It made perfect sense for Kimble to compete in the Ironman Florida 70.3 event again this year, and test her training. Kimble entered the event with a goal of attempting to break five hours and place top 10 in her age group. “I wanted to leave the course knowing I had given it my all,” she said - and she did. Kimble finished April's Ironman 70.3 in 5:00:56, placed 5th in her age division, and secured a spot in the September Ironman 70.3 World Championship. “I was so excited when they called my name! I was also so happy to have my training partner and coach there with me for all of it,” she said. Kimble's coach, Kniss, had a remarkable day as well. Prior to the 2017 Ironman Florida 70.3, Kniss had completed eighteen 70.3 races and four full Ironman races. Going into April's event, Kniss admittedly had some lofty goals. He said that did not need another “good” race. He wanted a “great” race. He wanted a new Personal Best. “I wanted to win my age group, place high overall, and secure a spot to the 70.3 World Championships in Chattanooga in September,” Kniss said. Goals accomplished. Kniss finished the event in 4:21:17, placing 21st overall, 1st in his age group (by more than 10 minutes), and securing

The bike was a 70.3 personal best for Kniss. He also bettered his time from last year's event by seven minutes. In addition to qualifying for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship, Kniss has also qualified for this year's Ironman 140.6 World Championship in Kona. “Based on the Haines City race, I actually think I have a shot at the podium for Chattanooga. I will do my best to race hard and vacation harder in Kona, but based on previous results, it will be extremely tough to podium in Kona…but

Running Journal • June, 2017 never say never, and I will give my all,” Kniss said. I look forward to following his and Kimble's progress as they approach the second half of the year in training and in competition. I have little doubt, that wonderful memories will be made, records will be broken, and the athletes' journey will be sprinkled with lots of athletic Ironman fun along the way.

Masters Running and Beyond Controlling Pre-Race Jitters Last month when I gave some general advice for beginner runners, I briefly discussed how to control nervousness before races. And that made me recall the days when I was much younger and faster than I am now, but when I also used to be nervous before every race. But since not nearly as much is at stake these days, I am now often calm as a clam when I toe the starting line. There are no personal records or overall awards to chase, just age group awards. Whether or not I end up on the podium in my age group depends more on who else shows up than how well I run. And I have no control over who else chooses to run the same race I am in. I am just happy to still be running! One exception though is before I run a one mile race. I haven't raced the mile for almost two years now, last time being on the track in 2015. But the mile always made me nervous, whether on road or track. Running a mile only takes a fraction of the time it takes to run a 5K or a 10K. But I am running closer to maximum capacity which is much more painful. And it is anticipation of that pain that makes me nervous! I wondered whether other runners of my age and caliber were getting nervous when they raced. So I asked them. And the responses were mixed. Gary Romesser of Fort Myers, FL, a former elite runner who now “cleans up” in the Senior Grandmasters division every time he races, usually gets nervous when it is race time. “I know I need to be really focused” he said. He added that jogging helps him plan race strategy and stay relaxed when he does not feel as focused as he would like to be. However when he's focused and comfortable about his race goals, then talking with other runners and friends help him stay calm. Nan Henderson and Catherine Fitzsimmons are friends and seasonal Naples residents. They are both frequent age group winners at local races, and both told me they too get nervous before they race. But they also have very good coping mechanisms. “I put it in perspective, and tell myself it is not like an Olympic gold medal or a college scholarship is on the line,” said Henderson. And Fitzsimmons focuses on her breathing and tells herself she is ready for the hard work. “I try to stay in the moment” she said. However a few other runners told me they are not getting nervous when it's race time, or at least not as much as they used to. Or they get nervous before track races

but not on the road. The answers I got, coupled with my own experience, point to a few common threads. For example that even though there are individual differences, the more is at stake the more nervous we tend to get. Gary Romesser is still racing at an elite level and chasing records, even though he is now in his 60's. Therefore he still gets nervous before racing, while someone like me who runs more for health and social reasons proceed fairly calmly to the starting line. Also, when we anticipate that our race or workout will be painful, we get more jittery. This explains why I still get nervous when I'm about to run a one mile race - because it hurts so much! Same goes for speedwork - I always get a little “worked up” before I head out on an interval session. Melissa McCullough of Arden, NC, said the same thing, that in the days when she did speedwork she used to be a little nervous beforehand also. And as I mentioned above, a couple of people told me they get nervous before they run track races but not before road races. Facing the unknown can also make us nervous sometimes. When it comes to racing, that usually means going to a very large event, and/or one we haven't done before. If I am going to a race I have run in the past, and I know the course and how to get there - no big deal. But a major race with thousands of runners which I have never run before is a completely different animal. It usually requires a lot more planning when it comes to logistics. Even if this does not create full fledged nervousness, it increases my anxiety level a little. Susan Leuck of Oak Island, NC, said she got nervous before running the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC, for similar reasons. As most of you know, the Cooper River Bridge Run is a major event, which draws tens of thousands of runners every year. And running with this many of our counterparts is enough to cause some of us to freak out!

So, if you suffer from pre-race jitters, how can you calm your nerves? Sometimes it comes down to attitude. Catherine Fitzsimmons and Nan Henderson were into something when they told themselves they were ready, and reminded themselves that they were running for fun and not very much was at stake. It also helps if we remind ourselves that some things we can control, while other things we can't. When we toe the line we have done all we can regarding the factors we do control, for example how and how much we train, and what we eat the night before. But we can't control the weather. Nor can we control the competition. The latter was often a major contributor to my pre-race jitters during my peak years. I knew I was ready, but often had no idea how fit my competitors would be when they came into the race. And if I figured they may be close to my speed, it could cause my butterflies to fly out of control! Until I told myself that all I could do was to run my own race and do my very best. Maybe we don't worry about how we place or what time the clock shows when we finish, but dread the pain we have to deal with during the final mile or quarter mile. This is when a mantra can be helpful. It can be a simple as telling ourselves that the pain we are feeling is temporary. Or we can think of something positive that will keep our mind off the effort, as long as it doesn't cause us to lose our focus. If you are the least bit competitive, you don't want to see your main age group rival swish past you in the final 100 yards! And if you are running a race on a new course or in a new town, get as prepared as you can. If on a new course, study the course map, and if possible go there for a training run a few days prior. If in a new town (or new part of town), use Google Maps or a similar app to figure out how long it will take you to get there, and adjust for traffic. Talk to other runners who have run the race before, and read the pre-race instructions. And if possible, pick up your race packet the day before. Do all you can to make your new race as “familiar” as possible, and you will arrive more refreshed and focused on the task at hand. Last but not the least, you may be glad to know that a little bit of nervousness before a major race can actually be a good thing. This is a sign that you are indeed focused, and that your mind is on the race. But if pre-race jitters tend to take the best

out of you, I hope you have found something in this column that you can apply to calm your nerves. And I hope that even if your next race is not your fastest it will be your best, because of how great you were feeling before and during the experience!

SOUTH CAROLINA Cooper River Bridge Run 10K Charleston, SC – 4/1 By Cedric Jaggers The 40th anniversary edition of the Cooper River Bridge Run was a huge success. With warm sunny weather all week and a similar forecast for race day, registration grew to 38,177, up by 2,275 from last year while the number of race finishers grew to 32,532, the largest number since 2012, up by 5,689. It was a comfortable 54 degrees with only a very slight breeze at the 8 AM start but the temperature was going up quickly as it was already 65 degrees an hour later and up to 74 degrees when the last finisher crossed the line at 11:45. The unexpectedly warm weather sent 20 participants to the medical tents for treatment and three runners had heart attacks during the race; one 68 year old man from NC did not survive. There had been only two previous reported heart attacks in race history. This year the race had a new record set for oldest finisher as 95 year old Al Rampey of Greenville, SC crossed the finish line as the 32,393rd finisher with a time of 3:23:13. For the sixth year in a row the race used USATF certified course #SC12007DW which begins on Coleman Boulevard in Mt Pleasant, crosses the Arthur Ravenel Jr Bridge and finishes on Meeting Street in downtown Charleston. Runners were divided into 14 waves, based on expected time, each of which started 3 minutes apart. The race itself was a good one. Pre-race talk was that no American had won the race since 1991, and some were predicting that this would be the year that streak ended. With two time defending champion Dominic Ondoro of Kenya, and Olympic Bronze medalist in the 5k Edwin Rotich also from Kenya in the race, the hopes were that Shadrack Kipchirchir an American born Kenyan who lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado and runs for the U.S. Army World Class Athlete program and who represented the US at the 2016 Olympics could win. A pack of 10 runners jumped to the lead and hit the 5k mark at together. They stayed close together until about four and a half miles when surges started thinning the pack. Kipchirchir had a plan, to stay with the leaders and then outkick them at the finish. After the race he said “I finish in second a lot and I’m sick of it, so my race

plan today was to be patient and wait for my moment.” With only three runners left and less than a mile to go a strong surge dropped Ondoro so only two runners turned the last turn together. With less than two tenths of a mile to go Kipchirchir turned on the afterburners to take the win, two seconds faster than Rotich in 28:12 to 28:14, the fastest winning time since 2010. Ondoro finished in third place in 28:33, 28 seconds faster than his winning time last year. The top female runners also took off, as a pack of five hit the 5k mark together, and stayed close through about 4 miles. After the race, defending champion Monicah Ngige of Kenya said she wasn’t feeling strong at 4 miles, but felt she had to start moving. She said she felt better at 6 miles and made her move to take a 5 second win over Elvin Kibet, also of Kenya with times of 32:40 and 32:45. Kibet is the wife of this year’s race winner. Third place this year in 32:47 was Mamitu Daska of Ethiopia.The first USA finisher was race winner Shadrack Kipchirchir in 28:12, a record USA time for the race. The first USA female finishers was Kaitlin Goodman of Providence, RI who finished 35th overall in 33:52. Masters Male winner was Christopher Kipyego 42, of Kenya in 30:30. Female masters award went to Jen Rhines, 42 of Boston, MA in 35:16. The Grand Masters winners were Gary Bolduc, 53 of Ridgeville, SC in 36:02, and Sharryn Whitmore, 51 of Mt Pleasant, SC in 43:24. The Senior Grand Masters Awards went to David Bourgeois, 60 of Summerville, SC in 40:37, and Debbie Flynn, 60 of Cross, SC in 45:36. In addition to the prize money division, the Bridge Run presented awards 3 deep in each age group, and a th 40 anniversary finisher medal to everyone who finished the race.

Kristin Cain, from Graham, NC, followed shortly after with a time of 20 minutes and 51 seconds. The race ended on Main Street, where participants finished in true Divas fashion: with boas, tiaras and a refreshing Kinky Beverages® toast. Finishers were also rewarded with the new Divas® medal and Pandora® compatible charm. For those 21 and older, Traveler Beer was once again on hand providing Samuel Adams Summer Ale and Angry Orchard Hard Cider. The party didn’t stop with ice cold beers and a finish line dance party. The official Divas® hotel, The Baywatch Resort, hosted a post-race pool party complete with special Divas cocktails, a dance party and stunning views of the rolling waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Robert Pozo, the President and CEO of Continental Event & Sports Management, was pleased with another successful turnout and event in this lovely oceanside community. “Coming back to North Myrtle Beach always feels like coming back home. From the city to police and medical departments, everything ran like clockwork. We are so proud to call North Myrtle Beach home for this very exciting and fun event weekend.” Next year’s race will take place on Sunday, May 6, 2018. Registration is now available on Active.com.

TENNESSEE Wietecha Wins Again at St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Marathon NASHVILLE, TN - At mile 11, Scott Wietecha's legs started shutting down. By mile 20, despite his best efforts to stay hydrated, the 35-year-old was no longer sweating. Competing in Saturday's 18th running of the St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon was a struggle for the 35-year-old. However, despite this race being a little more difficult than those he's run in the past, he still found a way to win the event for the fifth straight year, finishing in 2:40:26. “It was definitely a struggle,” Wietecha said. “I'm glad it was 26 miles instead of 27 or there might have been a different winner.” Why was this year more of a struggle than previous victories? Well, a few months ago, Wietecha thought he was done running. “I put on 15, 20 pounds,” he said. Then the parents of some high school students called looking for someone to train their children. That training put Wietecha back on the path toward competing, and winning, the event once again. “I kind of wish they had called me a month earlier,” he said. “I would have been a little better prepared.” The Hendersonville, TN, resident said it helps competing in a local race. He saw several of his students along the course, particularly after mile 20, which helped push him toward the finish. Before the race, the students asked what they could hand him along the way. “I told them money, but nobody brought me any money,” he said with a laugh. “Water is better than money today.” Ryan Regnier, a 41-year-old from Lincoln, Neb., finished second in the star-studded day that featured former American Idol contestant Kellie Picker, who ran a relay to help raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and Bachelorette season 11 winner, Shawn Booth, who ran the half marathon on behalf of St. Jude. Women's marathon winner Lauren Mitchell didn't expect to finish first. After competing in the Boston Marathon a few weeks ago, she didn't expect to have her best day. But, competing in her 40th marathon, she exceeded all of her pre-race expectations, finishing first in 3:17.34. It was an emotional moment for the 32-year-old from Madison, AL. “I did not expect that today, but it feels really good. I'm very, very grateful,” Mitchell said. “I just ran Boston and I had a really tough day out there. Today it just felt effortless, even though it was a tough course. The community was so fun. It was just a fun day. It's what I love to do so it felt good.” It was Mitchell's first time running the race in Nashville and, when she crossed the finish line in her biggest marathon win so far, she said she felt like she was in the right place at the right time. “It's just one of those moments in life where you're grateful to be a part of it,” she said. “You hope that everyone can experience that at least once.” Mitchell was impressed by the support from the crowd lining the course, the families and the kids, “that's what keeps you going,” she said. And, when asked about the driving force behind her victory, she smiled and said, “slow start.” Katlyn Will, a 26-year-old from LaGrange, GA. finished second in 3:20.48. On a beautiful, but warm, spring morning, half marathon winner Tyler Andrews knew heading into the race it wasn't a “PR day.” But that didn't stop him from finishing the race in 1:10.59. “It's spectacular,” he said. “The best part for me was when we looped back around at the beginning and passed by the start, there was so much energy coming from the crowd. It was like you were at the Boston Marathon. It was great.” It was Andrews' first trip to Nashville. He was hosted by friends on the Vanderbilt men's and women's cross country team. “It's really great,” he said. “It's so fun to be here.”

Women’s Running Kiplagat Takes 121st Boston Marathon Title Race day dawned bright and warm with temperatures hovering near 70 degrees. The field was extremely competitive with the defending champion and several Olympians in the mix. The first mile started out at 5:55 and third-place debutante, 25-year-old Jordan Hasay, stated after the race that she felt very comfortable with the slow start. Jordan was racing her first Boston and first marathon and was a bit unsure what to expect despite all of her training and wins of the past six months. She had had some difficulty learning to hydrate on the run and this would be an important component of this race. By 5K (17:45) both Jordan and Desi Linden were keeping their special fluid bottles to drink every drop while others took a sip and

threw their bottles down. Jordan and Desi continued throughout the race to cover themselves in water and consume every bit of their special fluids. A fairly large pack stayed together alternating the lead throughout the miles.

Eleven women remained in the pack through 15K (51:54).Included in the mix were 2016 winner Atsede Baysa,Gladys Cherono 2015 Berlin champion in 2:19:25, 2014 Boston champion Buzenesh Deba in 2:19:59, Edna Kiplagat with a PR of 2:19:50 second place in the 2012 London Marathon,Valentine Kipketer with a best 2:23:02 in Amsterdam in 2013, two time Olympian Linden who entered as a favorite with a 2:22:38 second place finish in Boston 2011, and Hasay, the high school phenom now grown into success on the roads and running Boston as her debut marathon. Hasay came to Boston with a string of victories including three national championships (twin Cities 10 Mile, Houston Half and the Gate River Run 15K) and a 1:08 and change half marathon three weeks ago in Prague. Hasay lost her Mom in November and is running with her spirit at her side. The race continued and Linden took the lead at 5 miles. She knows she is not a speedster at the end but more of a steady and controlled marathoner. She decided it was time to up the pace a bit and see who would drop back. At mile 9 she took a full bottle of water and dumped it on her head. The runners were feeling the heat. Her tactic reduced the pack from eleven to ten to eight. At 20K, both Hasay and Linden snagged their special fluid bottles and held onto them for over three minutes taking small sips until they were finished. The rest of the ladies grabbed their special bottles then after a drink dropped them. Seven women passed the halfway point in 1:12:33. Linden fell off the pack at between 25K and 30K. Five ladies remained in contention when Valentine Kipketer and Buzenesh Deba fell back leaving Kiplagat, Chelimo and Hasay in the hunt. Although Kiplagat, mother of two, told us at the pre-race press conference that she would not make a move until 5K to go, she changed her mind and put on a surge shortly after, that could not be covered. Later Hasay stated that she knew she had no idea what would happen so rather than go with Kiplagat she decided to get her cadence back and settle into her pace. Kiplagat quickly extended her lead to 34 seconds, then 48 seconds, then over a minute. She was totally clear of the field throwing in miles of 5:22, 5:02, 5:22, 5:02, 5:11, 5:03 and 5:17 over the last seven miles. That is not a pace that anyone

could make up. In fact she ran one of her last six miles faster than the men and all by herself! It was Kiplagat's day as her children greeted her at the finish. I had seen her doing Easter with her children the day before the race and they were all having so much fun. It was a celebratory weekend. Kiplagat took the tape in 2:21:52. Rose Chelimo finished second (2:22:51) holding off a closing Hasay, who smashed the American debut record of Kara Goucher by nearly three minutes. Her 2:23 flat was incredible and she was jumping around the finish area hugging her coach Alberto Salazar and then her Dad Joe. She wore her Mom's engagement ring on her left hand so as she reached for her special fluids every 5K, she had her Mom's help securing each bottle. She ran with her Mom in her heart every step of the way. Hasay's coach Alberto Salazar had a very successful day as he had Galen Rupp and Suguru Osako finishing second and third in the men's field. Three podium finishes for Salazar is a great day for the coach. He was very happy with the result. Two American women finished in the top five as Linden rallied for fourth place (2:25:06). Linden continued to exhibit her metronome like efficiency as she ran both halves in 1:12:33! Six American men broke into the top ten. After Rupp in 2:09:58, Shadrock Bowot was 4th, Abdi Abdirahman 6th, Augustus Maiyo 7th, Luke Puskedra 9th, and Jared Ward 10th. Meb, racing his last Boston, finished 13th and was awarded the BAA'S Patriot Award at the post race press conference. It was a very warm day but celebrated as a triumph for women as Kathrine Switzer celebrated the completion of her first Boston 50 years ago and over 46% of the entrants in 2017 were women. Many congrats to everyone who finished the 121st Boston Marathon. Carolyn Mather,R.N.,PhD. lives and runs in north Georgia and is a member of the Atlanta Track Club Elite.

SOUTHEASTERN ROAD RACE RESULTS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 22

Unlike Andrews, Allie Mac knows the city well. The Nashville native used that knowledge to her advantage, winning the women's half marathon in 1:23:04. “I knew where we were going,” she said. “I knew where the hills were going to be.” She tried to gain ground on those hills and running in the heat wasn't a problem. “I knew it was going to be hot,” she said. “I kind of like it. I get really sweaty, but it keeps me loose.” Mac was running behind several runners early in the race and had to chase them down to secure the victory. However, she wasn't focused on closing ground. She simply tried to run the best race possible. “I get nervous in races,” she said. “I get stressed out when I try to catch someone, so I just kind of said, 'Whatever, I'm just going to keep my pace and if I catch them I catch them.'-I did.” The St. Jude Rock 'n' Roll Nashville Marathon & 1/2 Marathon returned with more than 34,000 entrants who took on the 26.2, 13.1-mile and 5K courses, while passing many of Nashville's best live bands performing along the route. Race weekend kicked off on Thursday with the inaugural one mile race through downtown Nashville allowing runners to complete the Remix Challenge. Those who ran the one mile and any distance on Saturday received an exclusive third medal. In addition, 3,500 junior racers will participate in KiDS ROCK Nashville presented by YMCA of Middle Tennessee. During the marathon, 2,200 St. Jude Heroes ran for a reason, and this year, they hit their goal of $2 million for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Over the event's six-year partnership, more than $8 million has been raised for St. Jude Results: http://www.runrocknroll.com/finisherzone/search-and-results

Strolling Jim 40 miles/Marathon/10K Wartrace, TN – 5/6 By Steve Durbin Strolling Jim 40 milers was founded by Gary Cantrell in 1979. We believe this makes it the second longest continuously run ultra in the U.S. Cantrell was an avid runner; especially ultra marathons, and multi-day events. Back then, ultras were few and far between. Runners planned and trained for weeks for a specific event. (As opposed to today, when runners are “tweaking” if they don’t run at least one race/weekend). Barry Barkley has assisted Cantrell since the beginning, and Lucian Cayce joined forces not long afterwards. The race, always held on the first Saturday in May, is named after “Strolling Jim”, the first World’s Champion Tennessee Walking Horse. Jim is buried a few hundred yards from the finish line. The course traverses the beautiful Bedford County countryside, offering a mixture of rolling hills, some flat roads, and 4 substantial hills. Cantrell, aka Lazarus Lake of Barkley Marathons fame, keeps runners informed and entertained with messages spray painted on the roads. “This is not a Hill”, “Even my mother doesn’t walk here”, “No Pain, No Brain”, and, a favorite one, “No more Hills”, as you look ahead at a monster hill. A unique aspect of the race are the Color Shirts awarded for outstanding performances. A Gold Shirt is earned by running sub 5 hr in the 41.2 mile race; Blue Shirt to sub 6, and Red Shirt to sub 7hr. Dink Taylor of Huntsville, AL, leads with 9 Gold Shirt performances, to go along with his two overall wins. The course record was set by Canadian Andy Jones back 1991, with the ridiculously fast time of 3:59:26 (about 5:49/mile pace). This year’s race offered $3,000 to someone setting the new record. The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) designated Strolling Jim 41.2 to be the U.S. South Region’s Championship event for ultra marathon distance. The race started under clear skies, and mid 40 degree temps, yielding great conditions for the fastest runners, (later to change to windy, and sometimes rainy conditions as the day passed). Ultra running star David Riddle, of Cincinnati, led through the first 20+ miles, but had the misfortune of going off course for 2 miles. Riddle settled himself, and still finished second overall to Decatur, Georgia’s Jason Parks. Parks’ sparkling 4:18:06 is the 7th fastest time in race history. Six Gold Shirts were awarded this year, including Parks, Riddle, Ethan Coffey, Knoxville TN, Andrew Hodges, Huntsville, AL, Jason Mayeroff, Reno, NV, and Olaf Wasternack of Franklin, TN. The first female was Lauren Mitchell, Madison, AL in 5:47:36. Steve Durbin joined forces with Cantrell in 2014, and two additional races were added. In addition to the classic 41.2 miler, the Jim now boasts a 10km, and a Marathon. Both new courses have the signature of Cantrell all over them… beautiful, challenges courses, and inspiring, albeit sarcastic, comments on the road. At this time, it was decided that the race would become a fund raiser for the local Cascade High School Athletic Department. Aid stations were improved, and are now manned by students and parents of the school. Anya Gluszek, Huntsville, AL, was the overall winner of the Marathon with her 3:50:49, while Lance Perry, Athens, AL, was second with his 4:07:11. In the 10km, Eric Shull, Winchester, TN, and Owen Bradley (2 time winner of the 41.2), Birmingham, recorded the first ever sub 40-minutes with 36:48, and 37:48, respectively. Tracy Watson, Shelbyville, TN, was first female in 46:42. Strolling Jim would like to thank the citizens of Town of Wartrace, TN, Bedford Co, and surrounding areas, for their understanding and support of this classic event. 2018 will introduce a Half Marathon to the equation, giving runners one more strong option to join in on the fun. 40 miles, Top 25 – 1-Jason Parks 4:18:06, 2-David Riddle 4:35:35, 3-Ethan Coffey 4:46:56, 4-Andrew Hodges 4:48:34, 5-Jason Mayeroff 4:53:26, 6-Olaf Wasternack 4:58:31, 7-James Barnard 5:17:36, 8Jeremiah Tatum 5:19:21, 9-Aaron Bradner 5:24:37, 10Blake Trotter 5:32:55, 11-Joshua Holmes 5:44:00, 12Karl Studtmann 5:47:36, 13-Lauren Mitchell 5:47:36,
