Just Running For The Bling Bling. Does it matter to you? Do you run for the Bling? Do you have a lot of Running Bling and do you display it? I'll have to admit that I had never thought much about it until last weekend. As some of you know, I try to gather the results of every race in South Carolina and send them in to be posted on Running Journal's website. Check them out at Running.Net/content/results. When searching for hidden results, you might be surprised at how some race results are extremely difficult to find (sometimes I wonder when they are poorly done or exclude a lot of crucial details like age, gender, hometown or state if the finish services want the results to ever be seen). When you abandon all hope of finding results you can search for them on your favorite search engine. I prefer DuckDuckGo.com since they don't track where you've been and sell the information, but a lot of people use the better known Google. So I found the results of a race hidden as a link on Facebook. The comment that one participant had put there caught my eye. It said something like this: “I was disappointed that this race didn't have much Bling, not even finisher medals. I get them at almost all the races I run and I've gotten a lot more at other races. I ONLY RUN THEM FOR THE BLING.” I added the emphasis here. Do you run for the Bling? Did I run for the Bling? Maybe in a way everyone runs for the Bling in one way or another. Maybe it just depends on how you define Bling. So is your Bling on display? Look around and check out where you display it if you do. I have to admit that I have a few things from the almost 800 races I ran (before the car wreck a few years ago ended my running career). As I was writing this, I took a break to see how much stuff I was displaying. Kathy and I both won a lot of stuff (for me mainly age group awards) and we both put most of them in boxes up in the attic and donated them to races that were recycling trophies (or like the trophy run the Charleston Running Club used to sponsor when we lived there. Everyone who ran the race got to pick the trophy they wanted in reverse finish order, last place picked first. It was fun, and made sure people who rarely or never won a trophy got one.) But what Bling of mine is on display at our house? Okay, here goes, so you may want to skip this paragraph: A 1980

By Cedric Jaggers

River Run 15K Lucite award (the first time I broke 60 minutes at that distance). The 1980 New York City Marathon certificate (framed). The 1981 Marine Corps Marathon certificate (framed). A 3rd place age group trophy 1982 Cooper River Bridge Run 10K (the first time I ran under 38 minutes at 10K), and several top 5% age group awards over the years from the same race. A 1984 Kiawah Island Pelican trophy. A 1992 South Carolina RRCA Hall of Fame plaque. A 1996 top 1,000 finisher mug at the Peachtree 10K in Atlanta. A 1998 Charlie Post 5k award when Kathy and I both won the Grand Masters award. A 2002 Charlie Post award - a lighthouse statue. A 2002 Cooper River Bridge Run Hall of Fame Plaque. A 2011 Senior Grand Master winner plaque from the Rice Run 5K in Walterboro. I realize now that the ones on display are the ones with meaning to me. They were great performances or meaningful performances. I was surprised to realize that I didn't have a single one from any of the few races that I won. I think because they didn't mean a lot. I can remember saying after those races that I only won because the really good runners had run somewhere else that day. And I really believe it. So you tell me - do I have too much Bling on display? Do you runners who consider, or did consider, yourself serious runners, run just for the Bling like casual runners do? You'll have to decide that for yourself. As for me, I think everyone who runs, for any reason is getting the health benefits and improved quality of life. And that makes it worthwhile to run for a lifetime. Bling or no Bling.

After the Run A Winner in His Own Eyes - and Mine A recent travel itinerary had me scheduled to spend Saint Patrick's Day in my home state, North Carolina. Just like I typically do, I checked the local race schedule before arriving in the Tar Heel state. As St. Patty's Day luck would have it, my travel schedule and the weekend race schedule worked perfectly together to afford me the opportunity to run a 5k in Knightdale in the morning, and a 5k in Granville County in the afternoon. Even better was the proximity of the afternoon race to my little brother, Chase. Chase (who informed me, about a decade ago, that he would like to be called, “Chazzy”) is 15 years younger than I am. He has an affinity for numbers, dates, gas prices, stoplights and bridges. He has an amazingly impressive memory, contagious laugh, and sweet spirit. He also received an Autism diagnosis when he was three years old. Chazzy does not run, but he does have a pair of running shoes that I gave him, and that he broke in during this past year's visit to Florida. While in the Sunshine State, I introduced the Tar Heel to the Spinning bike and a daily gym routine. Unlike tar however, the routine did not “stick” with Chazzy upon his return to North Carolina, but the shoes still fit.

Chase at his first 5k Finish Line

By Mary Marcia Brown

Days before my recent visit, I called Chazzy to let him know that I would be in North Carolina, and that I would be picking him up for an exciting day of St. Patty's fun. I told him that his neighboring county would be hosting the “Granville Ambulance Chase & Food Truck Rodeo.” Chazzy was much more excited by the sound of the food trucks than he was by learning that I had registered the two of us for the afternoon 5k. Nonetheless, I was able to build a bit of excitement by sending him a 'Lucky' shirt and running shorts in the mail, and by telling him that we had the chance to be one of the 300 finishers to earn a special medal at the race. “Our goal is to be one of the first 300 runners to cross the finish line and win a

medal, Buddy,” I told him. Chazzy was in full agreement, and for days, I looked very forward to experiencing his very first 5k with him. When I picked him up, I told him that we would see if his new shirt would live up to its name. Pre-race, everything was new for him the bib number, safety pins, goodie bag, tutus, inflatable arch, megaphone and bullhorn. Together, we took in all the sights and sounds as we awaited the race's start. Our plan was to run slowly for a couple minutes, then walk, and repeat that pattern until we arrived successfully at the finish line. Our actual race went a little differently. At the sound of “GO”, Chazzy and I trotted easily toward the back of the crowd. It was a beautiful afternoon of about 70 degrees. During the first few yards, I noticed that Chazzy was holding onto the waist of his shorts. “What's wrong with your shorts, Buddy?” I asked. “Oh, nothing. I just feel like they might fall down,” he replied. “Did you tie them?” I asked. “I think so,” Chase said. “Then they won't fall down. You don't have to hold onto them. Just relax your arms a little by your side and try to run naturally,” I suggested. As soon as he tried my suggestion, I could see his new running shorts begin to slide from his waist to his hips. We stepped into the median, got readjusted while fellow runners trotted past, and rejoined the race. Our running strides lasted about a minute before it was time to walk. Chazzy was breathing heavily, breaking a sweat, and ready to turn down the pace. “We can walk for a few minutes now, Bud, but we don't want to slow down too much,” I said. Chase kept the walking pace and was prepared to run again after several minutes. The afternoon sun shone, and the heat rose from the asphalt of the road. Beads of sweat ran down Chase's face, and after another minute, it was time to resume walking. “I don't think I can do it,” Chase said, slowing down a bit as we approached Mile One. “I know you can, Buddy. You're doing great! Let's keep moving,” I said. The vision of our first water stop could not have come at a more perfect time. “Oh, they have water!” Chazzy exclaimed. “Can I have some?” “Of course,” I smiled, as he took a big

Women’s Running Dr. Dave's Flame Burns Brightly Forever I first met Dr. David Martin in 1971 when he was my anatomy and physiology professor at Georgia State University's College of Allied Health Sciences. He was a great teacher and I had no idea he was beginning a lifetime of research into the physiology of elite runners. I must admit I missed being a part of the early women's running movement as our Dean of Men, Tim Singleton had founded the Peachtree Road Race in 1970 and Dr. Dave was there from the start arriving in town just in time to run that first Peachtree. The Regents Professor Emeritus began his interest in running when he participated in intramural cross country during his undergraduate days at the University of Wisconsin. He earned a B.S. in zoology in 1961 and then completed an M.S. in education. He began teaching biology, chemistry and physics at Madison's Wisconsin High School. A Ford Foundation fellowship led him to medical school, where he finished two years of basic medical science then changed majors to complete

five years of research to earn a Ph.D. in physiology. As he was completing his Ph.D. dissertation, he was recruited to join the faculty at Georgia State University's College of Allied Health Sciences. He would not have predicted that he'd still be in Atlanta five decades later, but in fact he found his home here. He set up his lab in Kell Hall in the fall of 1970 and began teaching courses. Interests in track and field, scientific research and wellness medicine led Dr. Dave in the direction of assisting elite athletes. “I had already been asking

myself why athletes so often seemed to be injured,” he says. “The term 'healthy athlete' to me was almost an oxymoron.” Dr. Dave began his research by bringing in elite runners from around the world, often meeting them at the Peachtree Road Race. He would cater to them for a few days, testing them and advising them. He never considered himself a coach. "I don"t coach them, I just help them." But he became a renowned helper to many elite athletes who visited his lab regularly and got faster. As he tested in his lab, he collected data from all over the world. Dr. Dave wrote many books and articles and served on many committees around the world. But that is stuff you can read about and find elsewhere. I want to share some of my fondest memories of Dr. Dave during our friendship of over 40 years. Dr. Dave was a dear friend who encouraged me once I began running in 1978. He once asked me what took me so long to start. He tested some of the women on the Atlanta Track Club Women's Competitive Team to add our statistics to his growing data base. He also told me I performed much better than my tests indicated I could. He called me a metabolic machine and was constantly teasing me. He became good friends with my dear husband Steve and they had many fun runs together. Dr. Dave and I were once running the Peachtree Road Race. As we entered Piedmont Park, he started yelling at runners to clear the way as one of the top masters women was coming through. I looked around to see who he saw, when I realized he was clearing the way for me. That was so Dr. Dave. The night before the 1996 Olympics Trials Marathon in Charlotte, Dr. Dave, Steve, and I were out on the course the night before the trials, wondering what we were going to do if the ice continued and the course was too icy for the race. We sat discussing options into the wee hours, but were rewarded with little ice the next morning. Several of Dr. Dave's runners made the team. Dr. Dave could talk for hours about "his children." To a person I know ,Dr. Dave's athletes believe that he changed their lives and they certainly changed his. I recall with great joy the day he married Keith Brantly and Dr. Pier Boutin on the ocean beach behind Pier's parent's house. The party began early and lasted into the late night. Yet Dr. Dave had Steve and I were up early the next morning to get our run

done. He and I laughed continuously and chatted non-stop as my husband struggled with a monumental hangover and sweated scotch out of his pores. Dr. Dave and I had great fun dragging Steve along on that run and Steve could not believe we would not shut up. Dr. Dave collected data, worked non stop for elite athletes but he was a caring and giving soul. When I was the coordinator of the women's team he wrote articles for my team newsletter. I managed to convince him to put together a workshop for our women's team for those who wanted to attempt to qualify for the Olympic Trials marathon. Our 2000 Marathon Trials Olympic Hopefuls program that he put together was a concise and brilliant program for the ladies, and over time I believe we had seven qualifiers. He never was recognized for these acts of kindness but that was Dr. Dave. He was always available to help runners.I called his pearls of wisdom "Davidine Guidance" and his dedication to and support of our team was paramount to our many successes. Dr. Dave certainly helped me get within 16 seconds of qualifying and for that I am eternally blessed. Dr. Dave collated his life's work and made sure it was placed in the right hands. I believe his Better Training for Distance Runners continues to be the best book ever written on how to train, and why it matters and how training occurs. In his lifetime he authored and co-authored several massive volumes and many insightful articles. Steve, Dr. Dave and I debated doping continuously. We were definitely on the same page but did not know all the answers. Dr. Dave once told us that "I work 10 day weeks and 60 week years and I fill out an application to God every year to allow me to keep doing what I am doing." Dr. Dave was often at the finish of some of my races. I remember after I finished second master at the Rocket City Marathon, he went out to cool down with me. After a mile out on the course, we turned back to the finish, so he could cheer on runners, and he looked at me and asked with an incredible grin if "I was crazy? running into such an unbelievable headwind for the second half of the course." Although Dr. Dave left us on February 28, 2018, his work and his spirit remain with us eternally. I can still see him talking about life and his runners. Rest in peace my dear friend. Have fun with Steve!! You both left us way too soon but we are forever in your debt for all you did for running.

EAT WELL, RUN WELL

Eating for Endurance What’s the best way to fuel for the Boston Marathon? Should I eat a high fat diet to train my body to burn more fat and less glucose? What percent of calories should come from carbohydrate? protein? fat? When it comes to eating for endurance, today’s runners are confronted with two opposing views: • Eat a traditional carbohydrate-based sports diet, or • Eat a fat-based diet that severely limits carbohydrate intake. What should an eager marathoner, Ironman triathlete, or ultrarunner eat to perform better? Here’s what you want to know about eating for endurance, based on the Joint Position Statement on Nutrition for Athletic Performance from the American College of Sports Medicine, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and Dietitians of Canada. 1. Eat enough calories. Most runners need ~21 calories per pound (45 cal/kg) of lean body mass (LBM). That means, if you weigh 150 pounds and have 10% body fat, your LBM is 135 pounds, your estimated energy needs are 2,800 calories a day. That said, energy needs vary from person to person, depending on how fidgety you are, how much you sit in front of a computer, how much muscle you have, etc.. Hence, your body is actually your best calorie counter—more accurate than any formula or app! If you are eat intuitively—that is, you eat when you feel hunger and stop when feel content, you are likely eating enough. If you find yourself stopping eating just because you think you should, if you are feeling hungry all the time and are losing weight, you want to eat larger portions. Underfueling is a needless way to hurt your performance. If you can’t tell when enough food is enough, wait 10 to 20 minutes after eating and then, mindfully ask yourself “Does my body need more fuel?” Runners who routinely stop eating just because they have finished their packet of oatmeal (or other pre-portioned allotment) can easily be under-fueled. Even dieting runners want to surround their workouts with fuel. Their plan should be to eat enough during the daytime to fuel up and refuel from workouts, and then eat just a little bit less at the end of the day, to lose weight when they are sleeping. 2. Eat enough carbohydrates. According to the Position Statement on Nutrition for Athletic Performance, the optimal amount of carbohydrate on a day with one hour of training is 5 to 7 grams carb/kg. On high volume days, you need about 6 to 12 g carb/kg body weight. For a 150-pound (68 kg) athlete, this comes to about 350 to 800 grams carb a day—the equivalent of about one to two (1-lb) boxes of uncooked pasta (1,400 to 3,200 calories). That’s more than many of today’s (carbphobic) runners consume. You want to make grains the foundation of each meal: choose more oatmeal for breakfast; more sandwiches at lunch; and more rice at dinner to get three times more calories from carbs than from protein. Otherwise, you set the stage for needless fatigue. 3. Eat adequate—but not excess—protein. Protein needs for runners range from 1.4 g/kg (for mature runners) to 2.0 g protein/kg (for novices building muscle or dieting to lose fat). For a 150-pound (68 kg) runner, protein needs come to about 95 to 135 grams protein per day, or 25 to 35 grams protein four times a day. That means 3 eggs at breakfast (with the bowl of oatmeal), a hearty sandwich at lunch, portion of lean meat/fish/chicken at dinner, and cottage cheese (with fruit) for an afternoon or bedtime snack. For vegetarians, generous servings of beans, hummus, nuts and tofu at every meal can do the job; a light sprinkling of beans on a lunchtime salad will not. By consuming protein every 3 to 5 hours, you will optimize muscle building and deter muscle breakdown. 4. Fill in the calorie-gap with fat. Include in each meal and snack some health-promoting, antiinflammatory fat: nuts, salmon, peanut butter, avocado, olive oil, etc.. Fat adds flavor, offers satiety, and is a source of fuel for endurance exercise. Training your muscles to burn more fat for fuel happens when you do steady “fat burning” long runs. By burning

Don’t let nutrition By Nancy Clark, M.S., R.D.

more fat, you burn less of the limited carbohydrate (muscle glycogen, blood glucose) stores. You will have greater endurance and delay (or avoid) hitting the wall. A (tougher) way to train your body to burn more fat is to severely limit your carbohydrate intake and push your fat intake to 70% of your calories. That could be 1,800 calories (185 g) of fat per day! This very high fat diet produces ketones and forces the body to burn ketones for fuel. Keto-athletes endure a tough, 3 to 4 week adaptation period as their bodies transition to burning fat, not glucose, for fuel. While some keto-runners rave about how great they feel when in ketosis, the sports nutrition literature, to date, reports little or no performance benefits from a ketogenic sports diet. It might nix sugar binges, but it’s unlikely to make you a better runner. 4. Drink enough fluids. A simple way to determine if you are drinking enough fluid is to monitor your urine. You should be voiding dilute, light colored urine every 2 to 4 hours. (Exception: runners who take vitamin supplements tend to have dark colored urine.) You want to learn your sweat rate, so you can strategize how to prevent dehydration. Weigh yourself nude before and after one hour of race-pace running, during which you drink nothing. A one-pound drop pre- to post-exercise equates to 16 ounces of sweat loss. Losing two pounds of sweat in an hour equates to 32 ounces (1 quart). To prevent that loss, you should target drinking 8 ounces of water or sports drink every 15 minutes. Runners who pre-plan their fluid intake tend to hydrate better than those who “wing it.” 5. Consume enough calories during long runs. If you will be running for longer than 60 to 90 minutes, you want to target 40 to 80 calories (10 to 20 g) of carbohydrate every 20 minutes (120 to 240 calories per hour), starting after the first hour (which gets fueled by your pre-run food). If you are an Ironman triathlete, marathoner, or ultra-runner who exercises for more than three consequtive hours, you want to target up to 360 calories per hour. The key is to practice event-day fueling during the months that lead up to the event. By training your gut to tolerate the fuel, you’ll be able to enjoy the event without fretting about running out of energy or suffering intestinal distress. The bottom line: If you are going to run, you might as well get the most out of your workouts. Performance improves with a good fueling plan. Eat wisely, run smoothly, and enjoy your high energy!

Learning from the Young Guns Mixed Stimulus Workouts One of the most common mistakes we make as distance runners is doing the same thing every single day. It’s easy to get in the habit of doing the same route at the same pace every day, but it’s also one of the principal causes of performance stagnation. Varying the duration, frequency, terrain, and intensity of runs are the building blocks of long-term improvement. Incorporating workouts such as tempo runs, fartlek, or interval work on a regular basis is a great way to make improvements through varied intensity. We tend to place those workouts into specific categories – tempo pace, marathon pace, interval pace, hill repeats etc. But who’s to say you can’t do tempo pace and interval pace in the same workout? Or include hill repeats in the middle of a tempo run? Utilizing mixed stimulus workouts can give you a unique challenge and allow for more recovery days between hard workouts than if you were running 2 separate workouts during the week. Here are four mixed stimulus workouts that will make you rethink your Tuesday tempo or Thursday interval days: Tempo with Hills: This is a combination workout that is well suited for the early stages of a training plan when you’re beginning to incorporate harder workouts into your routine. Hill repetitions are an excellent way to introduce quicker running while you are in the building stages of training because the impact stress is minimal and they do wonders for improving running economy. In addition to getting the benefits of both tempo and hill work this workout improves your ability to recover at a steady pace, perfect for recovering on the fly from that mid-race hill. You’ll want to find a relatively flat stretch of road or trail with close proximity to a hill for this workout. For the workout itself, run 10 minutes at tempo pace, roughly the pace you could hold for a 60minute race, then take 60-90 seconds recovery before going right into a 3-4 hill repetitions of 30-45 seconds. After each hill your recovery is an easy jog to the bottom. After the final hill take 4 minutes and then repeat the process 1-2 more times. The Michigan: This workout was made famous by former University of Michigan coach, the legendary Ron Warhurst. This workout is a combination of tempo and interval running, and is a workout you should only attempt in the final 3-8 weeks before a key race. The Michigan is designed to improve your ability to buffer

lactic acid, an important component for fast 5K and 10K racing. The specifics of the workout can vary depending on your level of training, but general structure is to alternate back and forth between interval and tempo. A common version of the workout looks like this: 1 mile run at 5-8 seconds slower than 5K pace, 2-3 minutes easy jog, 1 mile tempo, 2-3 minute easy jog, 3/4 mile at or slightly faster than 5K pace, 2-3 minutes easy jog, 1 mile tempo, 2-3 minutes easy jog, 1/2 mile slightly faster than the 3/4 mile interval, 2-3 minutes easy jog, 1 mile tempo, 1/4 mile slightly faster than the 1/2 mile interval. It is an intimidating workout, but that’s why it’s the only workout on this list with an official name. I would recommend eliminating the last 1 mile tempo and 1/4 mile repeat for first timers. And due to the intensity this workout should be treated like a race as it relates to recovery afterward. Long Run with Tempo: The “fast finish� long run is a popular component to many marathon training plans, but it is wonderful strength building workout for any distance runner. It combines the aerobic and muscular strength benefits of the long run with the higher intensity benefits of a tempo run. In preparation for a marathon this is a run you would incorporate in your specific phase of training, the

final 2-8 weeks preceding your marathon. In preparation for shorter distances like the 5K or 10K this type of long run should be done earlier in a training program before you start your primary racing schedule. There are two ways to execute this run. The first is to progress evenly over the second half of your run, working from long run pace down to or a touch quicker than tempo pace. The second is to run steadily at tempo pace for 2-6 miles within the long run. I tend to prefer the former to the latter because it allows you to listen to your body as you work through the run without overreaching and getting into trouble in the midst of a longer run. Tempo with Speed at End: This is a workout we frequently use with our ZAPReebok pro athletes. The tempo work can vary, from a long uphill climb to a standard tempo run or tempo based intervals, but regardless, we often finish this type of work with something fast at the end. Finishing a tempo workout with 4-10 fast 30 second to 1-minute pieces teaches the body to be efficient and run fast when it’s tired. This is a good way to practice finishing fast in a race without the physical breakdown that occurs at race intensity. After the tempo effort take 4-5 minutes rest before the faster pieces. Take plenty of rest between the fast pieces as well, up to 2 minutes, because these are for improving running efficiency not pushing yourself to the limit. Many runners we see at our Adult Running Vacations during the summer struggle balancing working hard with recovery, often incorporating two or three hard workouts in one week and not recovering properly from any of them. For those worried about checking all the boxes every week these mixed stimulus workouts allow you to do so in one train-

ing session and leave more room in your week to recover properly. ZAP Fitness is a Reebok Sponsored nonprofit facility which supports post collegiate distance runners in Blowing Rock, NC.

Distance Memories Setting the Clock at 2:51 a.m. – and Other Numbers The clock has dictated my life for the past 39 years. Between working a full time job in logistics and running every single day during this time I've been a slave to numbers and the clock for the last four decades. I thought it appropriate that I use numbers in the title of this story to commemorate a milestone I thought I might never realize: my retirement. As for the numbers in the title, it's a reference to the time I have set my alarm during the week ever since we moved from Peachtree City to Senoia in the summer of 2014. Actually I set my alarm for 3:00 a.m., but I make it a habit to set my alarm clock nine minutes ahead to allow for a cushion-or an additional mile during my morning run before I head off for work. Over my career I've set my alarm anywhere from 12:30 to 4:00 - all a.m.'s - to accommodate whatever work schedule I was facing on any given day. A work schedule in which I had to get my morning runs in first, of course. I can't imagine getting home at the end of a long day

By Scott Ludwig

at work and heading out for a 90-minute run when I know good and well the couch had other plans for me. That's why I chose to do my runs in the morning, allowing me to get the hardest (and best) part of my day in before the ups and downs of the 9 to 5 -- or in my case the 6:45 to 4:15 -consumed me. As for numbers and the role they've played in my life: • My work has always been predicated by numbers: how much, how fast, how often and how many? • My running is also a slave to numbers, perhaps to an even greater degree than my

work. How far, how long and how many? Since my 'work numbers' will soon be no more than a memory, let's focus on my running numbers. This will elaborate on my 'slave to numbers' comment earlier. • I set a goal a long time ago to run 100,000 miles in my lifetime. This fall, if things go as planned I will reach 150,000 miles. Anything more than that will be icing on the cake, or at least that's what I'm trying to tell myself. • I wanted to run 100 marathons. I'm now at 207 and by the looks of things that may be a finite number. The raging fire to run 26.2 miles seems to have been somewhat doused, if not totally extinguished. • I would like to run 1,000 races. I'm a little more than 100 short of that goal, but I'm hoping I can run another 100 or so races with my grandson. I'm putting that ball in his court! • I've directed or co-directed 100 races. That's a good stopping point. • I've run my age in miles on my 40th, 45th, 50th, 55th and 60th birthday. When I reach 65 I may convert to kilometers. Or perhaps minutes.

• This year I will run my 40th consecutive Peachtree Road Race. Originally I wanted to reach 50, but I'm curious what the 4th of July would be like if I just took it easy for a change. Time will tell, but for the moment I'm considering 40 to be the end of that (Peachtree) Road. • This November 30th will mark my 40th year of running every day. God willing, that beat will go on. Monday, March 12 marked my first official day of retirement. To celebrate I drove over to the Davis Camp Pavilion in nearby Haralson and ran my favorite sixand-a-half-mile loop along my favorite country roads… Six times. I'll leave the math to you. Remember, I'm retired now. I'm no longer a slave to numbers. Scott Ludwig has been an avid runner since 1978; in fact the last day he didn’t run was November 29 of that year — he’s run every day since. Scott is the author of 13 books, nine of them about running. His latest book, Running Out of Gas was released in January 2018 by Meyer and Meyer Publishers. His books can be found in Barnes and Noble stores as well as on Amazon. Scott lives, runs and writes in Senoia, Georgia where he lives with his wife, Cindy, and their three cats. In his free time he enjoys being ‘G-Pa’ to his grandson Krischan, something he’s been training for his entire life.

Running Through the Bluegrass Trying Weird Things, Some Are Helpful … There are no shortcuts to running — the most sure way to become a better runner is to, well, run. After that, it’s the importance of the “extras” — strength training, cross-training, adequate sleep, hydrating ... But, in between those things? I’m willing to try a lot of things to improve my running. Here’s the five weirdest things I’ve tried to help my running:  Toe separators. These sexy things stretch your toes away from each other and reputedly can help prevent bunions, help with plantar fasciitis, neuromas, etc. Similar to the ones you wear to get a pedi, but more intense, mine are made of rubber and I got them pretty cheap off Groupon. Verdict: Studies and expert opinions vary, but I don’t care. I love these things. They make my feet feel a million times better. I pop them on for awhile while watching TV and my feet soon feel relaxed and refreshed, even. Thumbs (or big toes) up!  Magnesium spray. Supposedly it would give the benefits of an Epsom salt bath without having to take a bath — relieving achy, tired muscles. So I bought some off Amazon, because, why not? Verdict: This stuff makes my skin itchy — and I don’t get to take a bath. Thumbs

down.  Dry needling. Done by a trained professional, this technique using acupuncture needles to release muscle tension. I have it done for acute pain — when you’ve tweaked something but haven’t strained or torn something. To date I’ve had my plantar fascia, calf, hamstring, glute, latissimus dorsi, and trapezius all dry needled. My sports chiropractor does the work as part of a regular session, so I normally have soft tissue work, spinal adjustment, and kinseotaping all done at the same time. Verdict: WIZARDRY. I love dry needling. Thumbs up.  Normatec boots. The magical inflatable legs! These recovery devices are available under different brand names, but Normatec is kind of the Kleenex of pneu-

matic compression. (They’re also available for arms, shoulders, hips, etc.) Now rentable at a lot of physical therapy-type places, and quickly becoming more affordable, I was able to borrow a pair for about a week this spring. Like compression tights, they’re supposed to speed up recovery basically by pumping the fluids through your legs and flushing them out. Verdict: After a week, I didn’t notice much difference. They felt great when I had them on, but my legs felt about the same as normal on runs. What I did find, though, is that the “deep touch pressure” sensation immediately put me to sleep. I wouldn’t buy a set, but I would use someone else’s for free any day. Worth a try if you can borrow or inexpensively rent a pair, and I’d suggest (as did my sports chiro) trying them multiple days during a peak training week.  Squirrel’s Nut Butter. Funniest name ever. Popular in the trail/ultra scene, this all-natural anti-chafe balm has appeared in posts by a bunch of my Instagram friends (who are also popular in the trail/ultra scene, incidentally). I’ve used Body Glide for years, and even tried their other Skin Glide product, but it’s never been fail-safe. I tried Chamois Butter, and tried combining both. But in hot and

humid conditions (read: the southeast most months of the year except January and even that’s questionable), it would melt off and I’d curse the makers of Body Glide as the shower stung whatever travesties had been ravaged on my skin. This is not over-dramatization; I have scars to prove it. So when Squirrel’s Nut Butter showed up at my local running retail store, I grabbed a small stick. What the heck, I thought. Verdict: Smells amazing, doubles as a salve (great for winter face protection). Works amazing. Nothing I applied it to for my warm and humid Chicago Marathon ended up chafed. Thumbs up!

Masters Running and Beyond Barriers are Made to be Broken! When Roger Bannister passed away earlier this year at the age of 88, we were reminded that there once was a seemingly impossible, almost magical barrier in running: The four minute mile. This is not the only “magical barrier” in running of course, but it is probably the most prolific. It's a mark which we once thought was meant to never be broken. Until one windy evening in May of 1954, when Bannister became the first to run a sub four. He was a 25 year old medical student at the time, and an accomplished runner, having finished fourth in the 1,500 meters at the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. And it was probably a blessing in disguise that he didn't medal, because if he did he would probably have retired from running and focused on his medical career. But now he felt he still had some unfinished business in his running. So he continued to train, fitting in workouts in his spare time, between studying and shifts at the hospital. And he was one of a few men who were chasing the seemingly impossible four minute barrier. My fellow Swede Gunder Hägg held a world record that had stood for nine years. He had posted a 4:01.4 in Malmö, Sweden, in 1945. Since then, in addition to Bannister himself, Australian John Landy and American Wes Santee had come close to that mark. But a four minute mile? There was a myth going on at the time that the human heart would explode if it was made to work that hard! Fast forward to the early evening of May 6, 1954. After a full day's work at the hospital, Roger Bannister arrived at the Iffley Road cinder track at Oxford, and put on his spikes. In spite of unfavorable conditions with 15 mph winds, he decided to give the four minute mile a try. With the help of two pacers and a cheering crowd, he completed the four laps around the track in 3:59.4, and history was made! The crowd must have carried him through the final lap, as Bannister much later remarked that he “was at the point of collapse at the time of the finish”. Once the four minute barrier was broken, it wasn't long until happened again. After only 46 days, John Landy broke Bannister's word record, running the mile in 3:58.0. And by the end of 1957, 16 runners had logged sub four minute miles. The ice had been broken, and running a four minute mile was no longer impossible. Since then we have seen several other “impossible” barriers being broken. Running 100 meters in under 10 seconds, for example. Or a sub-2:20 marathon for women. A few had come close, including American Joan Benoit Samuelson, with a

By Lena Hollmann

2:21:21 clocking in 1985. But the barrier remained unbroken until September 2001, when Naoko Takahashi of Japan ran a 2:19:46 at the Berlin Marathon. This seemed to open the door for Katherine Ndereba of Kenya to produce an even faster effort. Only a week later she ran a 2:18:47 at the Chicago Marathon. As of this writing more than 20 women have posted marathon times under 2:20, including our own Deena Kastor with a 2:19:36. And now we are staring at the two hour barrier in the marathon for men! The first one to break 2:10 was Derek Clayton of Australia, in 1967. Today, more than half a century later, the official world record is 2:02:57. And we are wondering whether we will someday see a sub two hour marathon. Will it happen in our lifetime? Will it happen at all? Is it humanly possible to run at a 4:35 pace per mile for 26.2 miles?? On May 6, 2017, in Monza, Italy, there was a staged race with three of the world's best, in the hope of getting it done. However the winner, Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya, fell 25 seconds short. But hang in there my friends, since this is only one second per mile short of the goal! So sooner or later it will most likely happen. And then it will happen again, and again… Because once a magical barrier is broken, it's no longer magical. Once it is proven something can be done, it somehow loses its mystique. If it can be done once, it can be done again! I can relate to this concept from personal experience as well. Once in a different lifetime (or at least so it seems) I struggled for four years to break 2:50 in the marathon. After running a 2:51:45 in 1979 I was thrilled by my accomplishment, but soon I set my sights on breaking 2:50. I came close again at the Avon International Marathon in 1980, running a 2:50:51. But it would be another three years before I had my breakthrough. At the 1983 New York City Marathon I ran a 2:44:10, and probably nobody was more surprised than I was! I

had finally broken the ice, and within the next six months I completed two more sub 2:50 marathons, clocking 2:47 and 2:45. The latter was in the 1984 Boston Marathon, where I was 10th woman. For Travis Wills of Apex, NC, breaking 21 minutes in the 5K seemed impossible at first. He couldn't do it as a child, and came close several times without breaking it as an adult. Then one day, he did it! After that, many other goals didn't seem that insurmountable any more. He soon broke 20 minutes, then 19 minutes, and then one day he ran an 18:27, which is his personal best. After a few years away from running he's now chasing the 21 minute mark again. But since he did it before he knows what it takes to do it again. “I know it is hard to do but also know it can be done,” he said. It isn't always specific race times that we want to reach. Sometimes it can be to finish a challenging race or event, for a triathlete maybe to finish an Ironman. And for an elite runner it could be to make the Olympic Team. For Shalane Flanagan it was to win a major marathon. She is an extremely talented and hard working runner and I know of very few of her caliber. Still, a major marathon win seemed to elude her every time. Until last November when she won the New York City Marathon! She had planned to retire after New York, but her win gave her renewed confidence and motivation. Now we will see her in Boston, which as of this writing is just a few weeks away. And I will not be surprised if she's the one who breaks the tape there too! There are always going to be barriers to break, and mountains to climb. Mount Everest has been climbed many times, yet that was once upon a time also deemed impossible. We all have our own personal mountains to climb, or obstacles that seem like mountains. We have personal “magical barriers” we want to break, both in running and in other endeavors. And whether you want to break 40 minutes in the 10K or finish a marathon, you will find it hardest to accomplish your goal the first time. Once you have shown yourself that it can be done, it's much easier to do it again. Therefore, the next time you have a magical barrier you want to break, tell yourself you already did it, and that it's a piece of cake. As long as your goal is a realistic one, maybe a little positive self talk is all you need to get there! Lena Hollmann is a certified personal trainer with American Council on Exercise (ACE).

AFTER THE RUN CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 gulp, and gave an audible sound of relief. With the cup of water consumed, we were back at it. The race boasted a rolling course of hills. We therefore decided to run the downhills and walk the rest. For the next mile and a half, Chase verbally narrated his experience as he stayed anywhere from a foot to 10 feet behind me. “Oh my God! Oh My God! OMG! OMG!” he would yell while running the downhills. “You go ahead. I know where you are going,” he would try to suggest as we walked the uphill sections of the unfamiliar-to-him course. “My feet are killing me,” or “I think I'm done,” he would say when he thought we were at a good stopping place along the route, and each time we reached a shaded stretch, grateful for the mature trees, he would say, “Oh this is a nice neighborhood.” Yet by the time we reached the final half mile, Chazzy had found a nice rhythm. During the downhills, he ran ahead of me and when we walked, he wanted to know about our time. When I finally told Chase that we were nearing the finish line and that it was right around the corner, he took off! I ran to catch up with him and imagined the two of us crossing the finish line together with raised arms and smiles of success. However, four or five feet in front of the finish line, Chazzy stopped. “Come on, Buddy,” I encouraged. “I'm good,” he said. “You want to run over this finish line to get your medal,” I said, pointing to the matted finish beneath the blue arch. It took a bit more prompting and persuading to finally motivate Chazzy to travel a few more feet, but he did it. A high five and one of the coveted, limited Finisher medals was awaiting his victorious 5k completion. His 'Lucky' shirt lived up to its name indeed, and I was so proud of him. With a chilled bottle of water in one hand, a beautiful medal in the other, and a shaded curbside seat, Chazzy cooled down and reflected on his first 5k experience. “Well, Buddy… what did you think of your very first 5k?” I asked. “Oh, it was wretched!” Chazzy said. Then, looking down at his medal he continued, “I'm just glad I won.” Mary Marcia is a runner and fitness professional navigating her way through the unpredictable terrain of life.

Running Psychology Now We're Stressed Out!

SOUTHEASTERN ROAD RACE RESULTS more results at running.net

ALABAMA Funky Monkey 5K Mobile, AL – 3/10

Running is supposed to be an enjoyable activity. That's why you've been running for so many years. Then why doesn't running seem to be as fun now as it used to be? Some days it's almost as if running is just another stressor to be dealt with. You have a very busy life with work and family, and now it seems running is no longer a pleasant diversion, but another stressor in an already stressful day. Your performances are getting worse and worse, even though you are trying to keep up your training. Why isn't running fun like it used to be? Like the Stone Temple Pilots sang in their hit Stressed Out, “wish we could turn back time to the good old days…but now we're stressed out!” So why is there all this stress with your running? First, and foremost are you tired? Fatigue can make even the smallest task seem like a monumental struggle. Look at your log (begin keeping one if you don't already) and see if you have tried to up your mileage or the intensity of your training too quickly. Make sure you plan and adhere to easy recovery days, especially as you get older. Don't be afraid to plan days off in your training schedule. Do something else you enjoy in the time you would have been running. When you're rested and full of energy running will be more enjoyable. Read your body!! Persistent fatigue tells you something. So make rest and recovery a very regular part of your running. Feeling energized can make any busy day be less stressful. Are you getting any pleasure from running? Sounds like a pretty ridiculous question, but try and honestly answer it. Running should improve your health and self-image, while making you a well-balanced human being. Strive to keep your running in perspective. Running should be an activity that balances your life, not rules it. Try and remind yourself of the things you have always enjoyed in running and then get back to them. Running should be your healthy sport, not your unhealthy obsession. Are you frustrated with your running and feeling stressed about lack of progress in your training and racing? Have you set some goals and failed to reach them or just don't seem to be making any progress toward them? It may be time to rethink and reset your goals more realistically. Examine if your goals have been realistic, yet challenging. Goals, which are too difficult to achieve, lead to feelings of frustration and disappointment, both of which can sap energy and motivation. It you have set goals that

were too easy, you simply may be bored. Set some new goals that will stimulate your interest and give you a positive level of anticipation and excitement in achieving them. Maybe try some different distances and surfaces for your races. Do you ever feel like you're just going through the motions with your running? You force yourself to run, but you really don't remember much about the run or there seems to be nothing of significance that occurs during your run. It's as if you are on some type of automatic pilot, just numb to the environment and your running in general. Well then change things up! Put some variety in your training. Run as many different courses as possible. Run on different surfaces. Run shorter, run longer; just get out of the rut and do something different. You may even want to cross-train for a while. Ride a bike, inline skate, cross-country ski or something that you think is fun and doesn't stress you out. Sometimes sheer boredom leads to stress! Are you being too hard on yourself about running? Do you think of not running a certain mileage each week or taking a day off as a sign of weakness? Do you feel like a failure because you're not running well? Hey, lighten up, will ya'! Remind yourself that you're more than just a runner and your family and friends still love you no matter how running is going. Look at the enjoyment running has brought you and all you have accomplished since you began running. If you keep berating yourself and putting yourself down you will ultimately begin to really internalize it and really believe it. One of the best reasons to run is because it's fun. Think for a minute how you would feel if you couldn't run. Remember that injury that kept you from running for weeks? Think of how much you missed running then and how glad you were to be able to go out on a run, even if it were a very short one. Feel good about running, even though at times it may not

The Mile Matters, It's America's Distance … This article is dedicated to one of the greatest runners in the 20th century, Sir Roger Bannister who broke what was thought at the time an impossible barrier — the 4 minute mile — and to all those who persevere in pushing the boundaries of human performance. His 1954 achievement inspired so many and continues to do so even today. The Mile is known as America’s distance. I began researching the history and significance of the Mile when they finished installing the new rubber track at our high school and saw an additional starting line had been painted 9.344 meters back from the finish line. I could barely contain my excitement. The first thing I blurted out was “Can we run the Mile at our Invitational?!?” Our head coaches agreed and so began my renewed passion for the Mile. I discovered that the popularity of the mile began to fade sometime in the 1970s during our country’s efforts at metric conversion. The 1500 meters is often called the “metric mile” and is run at the youth (AAU, USATF), collegiate, and professional levels. While called the metric mile, it is 109.344 meters short of a mile. I point out this obvious math to make a point. It is NOT the Mile. To quote ‘Bring Back the Mile’ (bringbackthemile.com), “the 1500 meters, or worse, the misfit 1600 meters at the high school level, do not have the same historical significance and cultural, media, and promotional value as the Mile. There is no 1500 meter equiva-

lent to Roger Bannister’s historic and still revered and resonating first sub-4 minute Mile; put simply, the Mile is iconic, classic and timeless.” My biggest issue is with that abomination run in some states in high school, the 1600 meters. It is not even consistent across all states so I do not see the point. I grew up in Massachusetts running the mile. When I moved to Florida and began coaching at the high school level I discovered that we run the 1600 and 3200 instead of the mile and 2 mile or even 1500 and 3000. I like history and tradition. That’s the Mile. I also like consistency so I am a strong proponent of all states running the same distances at the high school level, whether it be the Mile and 2 Mile or 1500 meters and 3000 meters. Let’s let the kids see how they stack up across this great nation without having to run conversions on all their times. The greatest disservice we are doing to these young athletes is referring to the 1600 and 3200 as the mile and 2 mile. I hear coaches and athletes in Florida doing this when they clearly are not the same. If an athlete runs his first sub-4 minute

1600, it doesn’t mean the same thing as a sub-4 minute Mile. Some might say I am nit-picking here, but if we don’t teach them the difference between the 1600 meters and the Mile, we literally have young people growing up not understanding that they are not the same distance and we risk losing a lot of the history, tradition, and significance of the mile. In our little corner of the world in Florida, at our Manatee Hurricane Invitational in March, we ran the first annual RunnerGirl Mile and Orehowsky Mile. The female and male winners of those events received their gold medals like all event winners but were also awarded large trophies as a way to bring special recognition to the Mile being run instead of the 1600 meters. The RunnerGirl Mile was named after my company, which paid for these special awards, plus the fact that I have been coaching cross country and track at Manatee High School longer than any female coach in the 100+ year history of our school. The Orehowsky Mile was named after Coach Tom Orehowsky who coached cross country and track at Manatee High for over 30 years. Since his retirement, he continues to give back to our sport by serving as an FHSAA official. When I talked up the Mile being run at our meet instead of the 1600, it finally clicked for a couple of my own athletes that they are different distances with different starting lines, despite me constantly correcting them when they say they are running the Mile at a meet when it is in fact the 1600. I guess my point is that the Mile is important and Americans understand it. Much like the marathon and the 100 meters, most people know something about the Mile, even if just a simple reference like a 3-mile run or averaging 8 minute mile pace during a race. Back in high school in the early 1990s when I ran the Mile, I remember reading somewhere that the mile is the ultimate test of speed and endurance. I read those words and fell in love with the event. That excitement lives on in events like the Wanamaker Mile at the Millrose Games and the Fifth Avenue Mile. The Mile matters. Rae Ann Darling Reed runs, coaches, and writes in Florida.

proceed, as you would like. There will always be bumps in the proverbial road of running. But when weighing the bad and the good you will probably agree that running really does enhance your life, so don't beat yourself up and get stressed out when running doesn't go well. Obviously other people like to run too, so many of you probably run with a training partner or even a group. Running with others can be a plus or minus depending upon how it's done. If your training runs turn into competitive races with your training partners then you will most likely feel stress about training. Nothing can spoil the pleasure of running like trying to race someone every single day. Not only will it stress you mentally, racing each day in training will quickly wear you down physically resulting in poor “real race performance,” horrible fatigue during the day and possible running burnout. If your training partners seem to always want to race, then take a few mental health days each week. Run by yourself and enjoy the experience. If you like to socialize as you run, then find a group who runs easy, doesn't race in training and likes good conversation. Remember that training is basically hard days followed by easy days to allow the body to adapt. Run hard on the hard days, but run easy and really enjoy yourself on the easy recovery days. Your fitness will improve as a result and you will most certainly experience less stress. Always keep in mind that the globe will still keep turning if you don't run everyday, or if you don't run a couple days with your group, or if you simply go out and run around a field with no watch to read for time or known distance you want to cover. Heck, there are 6 billion people in China who don't even know you or that you run! So be good to yourself and allow yourself to enjoy running again. Think about it: you're healthy and you're still running after all these years because you must enjoy it. Go out and allow yourself to enjoy running like you did when you first began! Make running a release again and not a stressor. Turn back time to the good old days!

Run With Deer 5K award winners.

GEORGIA Nearly 10,000 at Publix Georgia Marathon Weekend ATLANTA – March 18, 2018 – On a sunny, crystal clear morning at Pemberton Place, nearly 10,000 runners and walkers crossed the finish line at the 12th annual Publix Georgia Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K. A field of runners from around the country were competing for a $6,500 prize purse. The men’s marathon and the $1,500 prize was won by Sergei Zyrianov, who coasted to a sizeable margin of victory with a time of 2:29:37. Finishing behind Zyrianov were Jack McAfee in 2:38:32 and Tyler Anyan in 2:40:49. Zyrianov, who trains in Gainesville, Florida, completed a year of dominating Georgia road races, with his victory today on the heels of triumphs at the Snickers Albany Marathon and the Augusta University Half Marathon. “I love Georgia,” said the native Russian, who also won last year’s Publix Georgia Half Marathon. “It was very hilly, but it was good. I feel good.” On the women’s side, Marina Khmelevskaya led the way with a time of 2:52:31. Khmelvskaya, who represented Uzbekistan at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016 in the marathon, trains together with Zyrianov in Gainesville. With a personal best of 2:37, she was able to keep a comfortable pace on her way to victory. “It was a good race,” she said. “It was difficult, but I felt good and had good weather, so I just tried to take it easy.” The $1,000 and $750 second and third place prizes went to Kidan Kidane, who finished in a time of 2:59:52 and Jacqueline Merritt, who crossed in 3:06:18. The men’s half marathon was dominated by local running group ITL, as their runners swept the podium and were separated by less than 80 seconds. Thiago Bianchini took the win in 1:15:03, with his teammates Nicholas Denari and Patrick Ollinger close behind. “Today felt good,” said Bianchini. “From the beginning we had a nice pack, so we ran for about 10 miles all together and then it just became a race. I took off and it worked out for me. I guess today was my day.” Tavyn Lovitt won the women’s race, as she stayed steady throughout to finish in 1:21:30. Lovitt, just 22, graduated from Ole Miss last May, where she competed on the Cross Country team. “I wanted to go out in about 6:20,” said Lovitt, who currently works as an assistant on the Georgia Tech Track & Field team. “But I ended up going out around six minute pace and then from there just held 6:10 to 6:15 the rest of the way. I pretty much have to give all the credit to coffee and all the people screaming ‘girl power’ along the way.” Earlier in the day, the 5K, held for the first time since 2016, was won by Brian Sydow in 16:42 on the men’s side and by Jill Braley on the women’s in 19:01. Terrapin Beer Co. sponsored a “Terrapin Chase” in the 5K, and all runners that finished in front of a pair of Atlanta Track Club Elite athletes wearing turtle costumes went home with a Terrapin prize pack. The weekend kicked off Saturday morning with more than 800 children taking part in the Be Healthy Georgia Festival. The free event featured a One Mile and 50m Dash as well as a health and fitness festival in partnership with Georgia Shape, the Lt. Governor’s Office

This Running Life Despite Harsh Weather, Leblond wins Umstead 100 Olivier Leblond, 45, of Arlington Virginia, edged out Jim Sweeney, 36, of Albany, N.Y. to finish first at the 2018 Umstead 100 Endurance Run April 7-8 in Raleigh, N.C. His finish time was 14:04:57. This victory marks the second of his back-to-back Umstead wins, which bested his 2017 finish time of 14:05:50. According to a post on his Facebook page, Leblond believes he set an American 100-mile ultra marathon record for the 45-49 age group. The American Ultra Association website lists the current 100-mile record at 14:31:11, set by Roy Pirrung, 46, of Wisconsin on Oct. 22, 1994. The 2018 Umstead Race was remarkable for its weather conditions. The forecasters had predicted a wild weekend, and most runners arrived prepared for the worst. The horn sounded at 6 a.m. on April 7, sending 266 runners into the dark woods. The temperature was mild and a soft drizzle fell through the leaves. By 5 p.m. that afternoon, the temperature had

plummeted by almost 20 degrees and the cold rain was steady. Four runners dropped out after just one 12.5-mile lap around the park. It takes eight laps to complete the entire 100-mile distance. “It was my first race with non-stop rain/sleet,” Leblond reported in his Facebook post. For most of the race, running a relentless 8-minute per mile pace, LeBlond maintained a comfortable lead on his closest competitor until his final lap. His pacer, Eric Fogleman, an experienced distance runner, possibly saved Leblond's

winning effort. Leblond wrote on Facebook: “As I was leaving the aid station for my final 12.5-mile lap, my pacer casually (told) me 'Do you want to know who's behind you? (The second-place runner) is right here!'” And just like that, the Umstead Endurance Run was a race to the finish, in the mud, through pouring rain. “Jim Sweeney chased us for the final 2 hours and finished only 2 minutes 43 seconds behind,” Leblond posted. “That made my last lap a very painful/stressful experience!” Sweeney finished the Umstead 100 in 14:07:40. After the race, the runners relaxed and recovered next to a warm fireplace and traded war stories about their finish. On the women's side, it appeared Starshine Blackford, 42, of Ohio would win her division, but she stopped after 17 hours at 87.5 miles. This gave Rhea Loney, 35, of Louisiana a window to victory, finishing 100 miles in 19:11:25. At Umstead this year, 290 runners were on track to start, but 24 dropped out before the race began, leaving 266 to brave the elements in the most brutal Umstead 100 many of the longtime runners can remember. By lunchtime, some runners already needed medical treatment for hypothermia. Of the 266 runners who started, only 114 ran all 100 miles. Forty-five completed a metric century or more, and 78 settled for 50 miles that day. This year, runners traveled to Umstead from 32 states, Washington, D.C., Canada, England and Bermuda. There were 104 men and 176 women registered. The youngest runner, George Callahan of Raleigh, finished 50 miles in 10:41:26.

The oldest runner, Paul Morgan, 77, of Florida, finished 50 miles in 14:30:19. Eric Kajiwara and Gordy Ainsleigh, both from California, were the oldest 100mile finishers. Kajiwara, 71 finished in 28:49:02 and Ainsleigh, 70, finished in 29:05:47. The two were first-time Umstead 100 finishers and received their buckles at the finish line. Louise Mason, 65, of Illinois is a regular out at Umstead, and this year, she celebrated her 19th finish in 28:53:05. She'll qualify for the coveted 2000-mile buckle next year. Meredith Murphy, 39, of Pennsylvania earned her 1000-mile buckle this year, after completing her 10th Umstead 100 race in 29:04:10. The 2018 race was a special occasion. Held on National Beer Day, runner Les Abbott, an account executive with the Raleigh Brewing Company, made a special small batch of craft beer to honor the Umstead 100 race. He wrote an email to race director Rhonda Hampton describing the special brew. “To my surprise, I was invited to be brewer-for-a-day and come up with the recipe myself,” he wrote. “With a lot of guidance and wisdom from our small batch brewer, Clay Fussell, we constructed a beer that we thought really represented the race.” Since the Umstead Endurance Run is a 100-miler, he wanted Centennial hops to take the leading role, he wrote. “And along with Umstead being a Western States qualifier, I thought it would be fitting to make a West Coast style IPA. And of course, it has to be a big, satisfying beer, so we got it to weigh in at 8% ABV to remind everyone of each and every one of those 8 laps. I call it Belt Buckle.” Abbott, who participated in his second Umstead Endurance Run this year, completed all eight laps for his second 100mile finish, coming in at 28:36:02. Give that man a Belt Buckle - or two. Teri Saylor lives, writes and runs (but not 100 miles in sleet and snow) in Raleigh, N.C. Contact her at terisaylor@hotmail.com

Peter Pressman, long time president of the Nashville Striders passed away on March 25. Pressman had been race director for the Tom King Classic half marathon/5K for many years. He was 72 years old. Pressman was a tireless and enthusiastic worker for the Nashville Striders and road racing in general. His infectious love of running inspired many. An avid runner, Pressman had completed 75 marathons, and was known to always say after a race that he had finished “upright and with a smile.” His presence will be greatly missed by the entire running community.
