Running Psychology Winning is Personal Running is the most primeval of all physical activities. Pre-historic man ran simply to survive through hunting and gathering, as well as fleeing from predators. For early man, success through running simply meant living to see the sun rise on another day. Today, success is certainly defined in a much different way. Unfortunately, in the running world success is too often associated with winning, and to most laymen, winning means finishing first. But do you really have to win or finish first to be a successful runner? I would say most certainly not. Success is far too often associated with some particular outcome, such as a championship, trophy or medal. For others success may mean having great wealth, fame or a position of power. All of these definitions of success are really external in their nature. By external I mean these things are what others or society usually expects. Too often we have to look to other people to let us know we are a success. Even when we are successful according to the external norms of society, it may never be enough. If we don’t continue to better our previous levels and do more and more then we may no longer feel successful. What a pity! So many people walking around who have done, and are continuing to do great things, yet they feel like miserable failures. I see this so often in runners. They run well, but for some reason, are never happy with what they’ve accomplished. No matter how they run, they view themselves as failures. While setting high standards is a must to achieving your potential, standards which are set too high and by external others can lead to constant feelings of failure and very high levels of frustration. Runners need to find a definition of success which is personal and internal. A running definition of success which runners set, not some running shoe advertisement or local running statistics maniac, who seems to know everyone’s times and places from races for the last half century. In all reality, running success is a very subjective feeling. Success is really about how YOU feel about what you’re doing. No one else can really define success for YOU. Many individuals often look to some end product in defining their success as runners. A performance time, event run, or place in a race are usually used as a measure of success. But running is a process; a long-term process in which about 99% is preparation and training, while only about 1% is performance or racing. Yet we judge our success so much on the 1%. What about the journey of running itself? Don’t we feel success just by being out on the road or trail? I would hope all of us feel a great deal of success simply by being runners. Too often we forget the joys and pleasures which present themselves in our daily run. Maybe it’s time we “stop and smell the roses,” both literally and figuratively, on our daily run. The act of running and moving is a joy in, and of itself. To feel successful you really don’t need a race, a clock or a measured dis-

tance. I know many runners that are very, very talented, but have not run a race in years. They still run a lot every week, but they don’t compete. Why? They really don’t like to race, but they love to run. Are these runners not successful because they no longer race? I would say they are very successful in running because they love to run and they are very happy about their running. All of us have different goals for our running. No matter what the goal is, when we reach them we have a success story! This July thousands of runners will make the trek down Peachtree Street in Atlanta for the Peachtree Road Race. Only one runner will be first, so are the others losers? No way! For many on July 4 there will be feelings of success that will be unmatched in their entire lifetimes. Goals will be reached and runners will feel good about their accomplishments. I know so many runners who always finish in the back quarter of every race, yet they absolutely love to run and participate in races. Are they losers because they finish at the tail end of the field? No way! If they have met their own personal goal then they are successful. I guess the thing that makes running so unique is really the personal nature of the sport. Sure, you often compete against other people, but you always have some type of competition going on with yourself and your own personal, internal goals. The challenge may lie in just getting out the door each day or it may lie in trying to reach that marathon PR. So set some personal goals and go after them! Don’t worry about other people and their goals or what goals they think you should set. Other people can’t set goals for you. Only you can decide what you want to accomplish! This is one of the basic premises of goal setting strategy. Whatever your goal may be, when you reach it feel good about what you’ve done. Enjoy the feelings of success! Don’t let others rain on your parade. When you reach a personal goal you deserve to feel good. Even though another runner may not understand your goals, it’s ok, because success is a personal thing! Enjoy it! Richard Ferguson is Chair of the Physical Education, Wellness, and Sport Science Department of Averett University and is an AASP Certified SportPsycology Consultant.

Running Journal recently lost two close friends and loyal supporters, Charlie & Susie Kluttz of Winston Salem, NC. Both passed away earlier this year, Charlie in February and Susie in late March. Charlie & Susie were two of the most recognizable faces on the Running Journal Grand Prix for many years, beginning when it was known as the Racing South Grand Prix. Susie was perhaps the most dominant competitor ever on the Grand Prix, winning her division multiple times. She had wins in each

division she moved to: masters, grandmasters, senior grandmasters to veterans. Susie last competed on the Grand Prix in 2009, winning the Veterans division. She also held many North Carolina State records as well as records on the National level. Charlie was a photographer who enjoyed taking pictures for Running Journal and became the “official” photographer of the Grand Prix. But his greatest joy was supporting Susie at the races, carrying water bottles and ice for her, and cheering her on. For many

years, the two traveled the roads of the South to Grand Prix races in their little Miata. They were married for 58 years. Of Charlie & Susie, Mary Lou Day, Editor of Running Journal said, “I remember very well meeting Charlie & Susie on my second day on the job for Running Journal at the Reedy River 10K in 1989. Our friendship started that day and I looked forward to seeing them at each Grand Prix stop. We had so much fun together traveling on the Grand Prix. They were two of my favorite people.”

Find Your Perfect Long Distance Race It may still be springtime, but now is the right time to start planning a fall marathon. We hope you will find our semi-annual Marathon and Long Distance Directory helpful in finding the perfect marathon or other long distance event. The directory covers distances from the 20K to the ultra held in the second half of the year. We have listed long distance races from across the south as well as a few events outside of our region. Long distance races continue to be very popular and there are lots of races to choose from. Whether you are looking for a race close to home or want to plan a vacation around a race, you should be able to find what you are looking for in our directory. Remember that once you have decided on an event, it’s important to get your entry in early. Many races have entry limits and fill up early, so you don’t want to be left out. Then start training for your big race. We wish you the best of luck! Be sure to check the Running Journal website calendar (www.running.net) often as we make frequent updates to our race calendar throughout the year.

EAT WELL, RUN WELL

Sports Supplements: Buyer Beware? Definition of a sports supplement: A food, food component, nutrient, or non-food compound that is purposefully ingested in addition to the habitually consumed diet with the aim of achieving a specific health and/or performance benefit. The global sports nutrition supplement market (including sports foods, drinks and supplements) accounted for $28+ billion in 2016 and, with the help of rigorous advertising, is expected to almost double by 2022. How many of the products are moneymaking ploys marketed to uninformed runners? Unfortunately, too many. Due to the plethora of products that have infiltrated gyms, fitness centers and professional running teams, I get questioned by joggers and competitive marathoners alike: Which of these supplements are actually effective?? Hands down, the most effective way to enhance your running pace is via your day-today sports diet, coordinated with a consistent training program. Eating the right foods at the right times creates the essential foundation to your success as a runner. That said, specific sports supplements could make a minor contribution to small performance improvements for certain elite athletes. If you are wondering if the grass is greener on the other side of your sports diet’s fence, here are some facts from the 2018 IOC Consensus Statement: Dietary Supplements and the High-Performance Athlete. • Supplement use varies across sports. It increases with the athletes’ training level and age, is higher in men than women and is strongly influenced by perceived cultural norms. (For example, “Everyone” on my team takes creatine, so I do, too.) • Before making any decisions regarding sports supplements, you want to get a nutritional assessment to be sure your diet supports your performance goals. No amount of supplements will compensate for a lousy diet. To find a local sports dietitian who is a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD), use the referral network at www.SCANdpg.org. • Despite the ads you see for a zillion sports supplements, very few have strong proof of directly enhancing performance. These include caffeine, creatine, specific buffering agents, and nitrate. Period. • Very little research with supplements offers definitive evidence, in part because the research is rarely done with elite athletes under real life conditions. Real life includes 1) multi-day track meets, competitions or events, 2) “stacking” supplements (such as mixing caffeine and nitrates) and 3) determining if, let’s say, an elite runner responds the same way to a supplement as does a Division-3 collegiate runner. Real life also includes your unique microbiome (the bacteria in your gut that influence your overall health and well-being). We do not yet know how much a microbiome – which varies 80% to 90% between individuals – influences the effectiveness of a sports supplement and contributes to different responses. Supplements are used for many different reasons. Here’s a breakdown of supplements by categories. 1. Supplements used to prevent/treat nutrient deficiency. Nutrients of concern for runners include iron (to prevent anemia), calcium and vitamin D (for bone health), as well as iodine, folate and B-12 for specific sub-groups of runners, including vegans and women who might become pregnant. The basic supplement question is: If you are deficient, what led to that deficiency and what dietary changes will you make to resolve the issue so that it doesn’t happen again? 2. Supplements used to provide energy. Sports drinks, energy drinks, gels, electrolyte replacements, protein supplements, energy bars, and liquid meals are often used to help meet energy needs before, during and after exercise. They are a convenient, albeit more expensive, alternative to common foods. They aren’t magical or superior to natural food. They are just easy to carry, standardized and eliminate decisions about which foods would offer, let’s say, the “recommended ratio” of carbs, protein

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

and fat. 3. Supplements that directly improve performance. Caffeine, creatine monohydrate, nitrate, sodium bicarbonate, and possibly beta-alanine are the very few performance enhancing supplements that have adequate support to suggest they may offer a marginal performance gain. If you choose to use them, be sure to test them thoroughly during hard training that mimics the competitive event. Choose a brand that is NSF Certified for Sport, to minimize the risk of consuming harmful drugs. Every year, athletes get suspended for failing a drug test after they unknowingly took a supplement with an illegal ingredient... 4. Supplements that indirectly improve performance. Some supplements claim to enhance performance indirectly by supporting a runner’s health and limiting illness. “Immune support” supplements that have moderate research to support their health claims include probiotics, vitamin D, and vitamin C. Supplements that lack strong support for their immune-enhancing claims include zinc, glutamine, Echinacea, vitamin E, and fish oil. Tart cherry juice and curcumin show promise A supplement with strong evidence to indirectly improve performance by helping build muscle is creatine monohydrate. Questionable supplements without strong evidence for runners include gelatin and HMB. Adverse effects. If some supplements are good, would more be better? No, supplements can cause harm. Too much iron can lead to iron overload. Too much caffeine increases anxiety. Supplements have been linked to liver toxicity, heart problems and seizures. In the USA in 2015, dietary supplements contributed to about 23,000 emergency department visits. That’s partially because manufacturers are not required to show safety or assure quality of a supplement. Athletes beware— and try to simply eat better to run better?

Running Journal • June, 2018

Distance Memories Counting Chickens, a Close Call … On April 18, 2018 I wrote a column for the Newnan (Georgia) Times-Herald addressing the safety concerns of a local road. I suggested several remedies - a reduced speed limit, the addition of speed bumps and additional police presence, among others - to make the road safer.

By Scott Ludwig

Then this happened… Early in the morning on Sunday, April 22four days after my column on the perils of Senoia's Old Highway 85 appeared in the local newspaper, my friends Valerie and Antonio and I were running along a onemile stretch of the road, a road that in no way should have 'highway' in its name. There are numerous personal residences and an elementary school located on it and as I pointed out in my earlier column, it has a posted speed limit of 45 miles per hour, more a suggestion than a directive. Towards the end of our run we turned off Dolly Nixon onto Old Highway 85. Antonio mentioned how we hadn't seen a vehicle on this particular road since the time we met Valerie at her mailbox, when we began our run two hours earlier, and again now as we were finishing up our run. (Valerie happens to live on Old Highway 85; Antonio and I run from my house two miles away and

meet her there.) The instant Antonio spoke the thought 'Don't count your chickens before they hatch' crossed my mind. Three or four minutes later we stopped on the opposite side of the road from Valerie's mailbox to make plans for our next run. We happened to look up and saw the first vehicle we had seen all morning on Old Highway 85 heading towards us. It seemed to appear out of nowhere -obviously moving much faster than 45 miles an hour - and drifting towards us and certainly not traveling parallel to the painted stripes in the middle of the road as it should have been. Suddenly Valerie, Antonio and I all had the same thought - that truck is heading straight

for us! Antonio and I immediately jumped well off the grass near the shoulder of the road into the front yard of Valerie's across-the-street neighbor. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Valerie's feet flying through the air; later I discovered she had pushed her dog Marley out of harms way and then made a last-second dive to save herself. Miraculously the truck missed the three of us (four, if you count Marley). The truck grazed the neighbor's mailbox before it made a sharp turn into the other side of the road and promptly obliterated the three mailboxes - one of them being Valerie's - before veering yet again back to the other side of the road, spinning around and flipping completely over before coming to a stop … exactly one foot from the wooden fence surrounding a horse stable, about 75 yards from where it grazed that first mailbox five seconds earlier. But somehow it seemed like everything occurred in slow motion. Antonio dialed 911 on his cell phone (he never runs without it…'just in case') and handed it to me since I was more familiar with the area. As I was speaking to the operator, Valerie and Antonio approached the vehicle. (The three of us spoke later and realized we all shared the same thought: 'We just watched someone die!') Surprisingly-if not astonishingly a young man appeared to lift his head off the steering wheel and tried to open the driver's side door, only to discover he couldn't because it had been severely damaged in the accident. He then crawled out through the truck window after announcing he was OK. Later, with the exception of a small laceration on his arm and the simple fact that he

was in a state of both shock and denial, it did appear that in time the driver of the truck was going to be just fine, at least as far as his health was concerned. However, there may be other consequences down the road based on what the law enforcement officers on the scene found in their investigation of the accident. I'll leave it up to them to sort things out. Looking back I realize a miracle had occurred that morning. The miracle wasn't that Valerie, Antonio and I avoided being struck by the runaway truck, or that the driver managed to survive the violent crash. The miracle was that when I got home that morning, the thought of using the virtually dormant treadmill in the basement suddenly seemed appealing. After all, it's nowhere near Old Highway 85. This article was written as a reminder that you run safely … and as you do when you operate an automobile, be sure to'watch out for the other guy'. 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.

Learning from the Young Guns Setting Up a Racing Schedule A few summers ago, one of our ZAP resident athletes concluded his year with a 5000-meter track race. As is often the case on the professional track and field circuit, the faster you run the more racing opportunities you get. His race went well that night and the next morning he received an invitation to a 3000-meter race that night. Typically we as coaches, and he as an athlete, would never entertain races on back-to-back days, but it was the last race of the season and he was scheduled to take a break afterward so he decided to race. The result was the fastest 3000-meter race of his life. Now, I still would never advise that approach, but depending on the athlete and the race distance the optimal racing schedule will vary from person to person. However, there are some important concepts to understand when putting together a racing schedule. There are two main types of athletes when it comes to racing: those who love to race frequently and view training as a means to an end, and those who are content to put their head down and train for long periods of time without racing. The latter tend to be well suited to longer distance races such as the half marathon and marathon, while the former often gravitate to the 5K and 10K. While this isn't always true, these tendencies are fitting given the demands of each race distance. The best way to layout any racing schedule is to pick a goal race and work backward. If your goal race is a 5K or 10K, you want to look at 3-4 races in the 10-12 weeks preceding that race. These races will sharpen your racing skills and your body's ability to tolerate high levels of acidity. The burning you feel in your legs, or throughout your entire body, at the end of a 5K or 10K makes is from the increased acidity in your muscles. Being able to effectively buffer and clear lactic acid will allow you to push through those final several minutes of shorter distance races. An effective way to improve your

race tactics and callous your body to the high levels of muscular acidity experienced in the final third of a 5K or 10K is to race a few times before your goal race. Mix in an over distance and under distance race if possible in those 3-4 races. Ideally, the longer distance race would be the first race of the build-up when you are strong but not race sharp. For a 5K race this could be anything from 8K to 10 miles. For a 10K race you could go up to a half marathon distance, but I would recommend keeping it in the 8-10 mile range in order to minimize the potential of a longer recovery period that could interrupt training. Ideally each race should be 2-3 weeks apart in order to allow for proper recovery and for normal training to resume between races. The final preparation race should be 2-3 weeks before the goal race and should be shorter than the goal race. With a 5K this may not be possible, but for a 10K, a 5K race would be ideal preparation 2-3 weeks out to sharpen up and recover quickly. Race scheduling for a half marathon or marathon goal race requires a different approach. The needs of either race are far different than that of a 5K or 10K. In 5K and 10K racing the races themselves provide excellent specific preparation. Longer races require more recovery time and therefore create longer interruptions in training, and shorter races do not provide the specific preparation like they do in 5K/10K training. This is not to say rac-

ing can or should not be part of successful training for the half marathon and marathon, but it is important to be more selective. The two major keys to successful half marathon and marathon training are consistency in overall running volume and consistency in the long runs. If you are racing a 5K or 10K every other weekend during marathon or half marathon training, then one or both of those training principals is likely being compromised. In preparation for a half marathon, aim for 1-3 races within the final 10-12 weeks. These races should be shorter than the half marathon distance and be scheduled at least 2-3 weeks apart. In addition to a quality workout and opportunity to run fast these races keep you engaged with the emotional and logistical side of racing, something that can be overwhelming if not practiced. From a physiological perspective they are not as critical as in 5K/10K preparation, but it is still important to stay familiar with the uniqueness of race day: discomfort, adrenaline and all. For the full marathon distance, many runners choose not to run any preparation races and instead focus solely on training. This can work for some athletes, but for the reasons listed previously, aim to race 1-2 times within the final 10 weeks of marathon training. One of these races should between 10 miles and 13.1 miles in distance and scheduled 4-6 weeks prior to the race. This race can be run for time or as a practice run where you run the first 7-8 miles at goal marathon pace and then pick it up bit by bit over the final miles. If you opt for an additional race it should be a shorter race such as a 10K, scheduled 710 weeks prior to the marathon. A shorter race is great for those who enjoy racing a bit more and prefer to break up training and enjoy the race environment in the midst of marathon training. Your racing schedule should reflect you as a runner and your goals, but be mindful of balancing training, rest, and racing

After the Run Weather or Not, Boston Bound to Get the Job Done When Lakeland, Florida runner Rhonda Fosser took a few seconds to pose beside one of the featured speakers at last year's RRCA Convention in Detroit, the premonition that she could possibly be standing beside the 2018 Boston Marathon Champion escaped her. “I was excited to get my picture taken with [Desiree Linden] at the convention, but I had no idea I would be jumping in front of my TV this year cheering her on to win the Boston Marathon!” Fosser said. She also shared that her first impression of Linden was that she was very small, totally humble and down to earth, yet when given a challenge, “ready to train hard and get the job done.” Those were certainly perceptive observations Fosser had of Linden. At 5'1”, the 34-year old American runner weighs only about a hundred pounds but packs the persistence of a hundred percent. Even after admitting to having the fleeting feeling of “throwing in the towel this year” after not experiencing a victory at any of her last 13 marathons, Linden summoned her inner slogan, “keep showing up”, and not only showed up at the Boston Marathon starting line, but showed up prepared to get the job done, indeed. The course was consumed by cold, drenching rain, and gusts of wind. Linden's mind was consumed with thoughts, during the early miles, that it just wasn't going to be her day. She therefore decided to devote her efforts to helping fellow American female runners, like Shalane Flanagan and Molly Huddle, in their attempts to claim the day's marathon victory. At some point however, Linden was reminded that her “keep showing up” motto, for which she has now filed with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office to trademark, means more than simply showing up for the race. It also means showing up for each and every mile in the race. The late miles began passing faster and Linden's legs began “getting better pop.” “She made me want to start running right then as I was watching her power through the pouring rain,” Fosser said. Fosser ran the Boston Marathon in 2015, requalified in 2016, and requalified again in late 2017 for next year's Boston Marathon. “I decided in the fall of 2017 that I wanted to qualify and run at least one more Boston Marathon,” Fosser said. The day before the Jacksonville Ameris Bank Marathon in December, Fosser registered for the Boston Qualifying race with the confidence that, despite not having the mileage on her legs she would have wanted, she could still achieve a 4:40

or faster required of women in her 65 to 70-year age group. Though she had run only two other marathons in previous years, she had finished both with BQ times and believed the third could also be a charm. She was right. “My time was 4:21:18 so I qualified for Boston by almost 19 minutes and earned first place in my age group. I was super excited and thankful!” she said. Fosser said that while a lot of marathon runners probably rank qualifying for and running Boston as their proudest running accomplishments, her proudest moment was her very first race -- the 4-mile Daytona Easter Beach run that she ran with her father, then 72. Fosser's dad, the late John Hickey, as well as her mother,

Erma, inspired her to start running when she was 49. Though she did not finish faster than her dad in that first race, she said that she was immediately “hooked” and has been running strong ever since. Just last month, the 67-year old retired elementary school teacher, who tries to run at least two races each month, placed second in her age group in a half marathon she ran in Central Park, NY, and placed first in her age group at a 10k in Jacksonville. Among her future running goals, Fosser hopes to run another popular Jacksonville race again, the Gate River Run, and she aspires to continue running Gasparilla races. An Illinois native, the Chicago Marathon is on her race radar, too. Trying some new races with her favorite running partner and biggest cheerleader, her husband, Terry, is also on the list of goals. Terry will be in Boston cheering for Fosser during her 2019 marathon. “My goals for the 2019 Boston Marathon are to have fun and enjoy the whole experience with friends from Lakeland and my husband,” Fosser said, explaining that running another BQ time would be an added benefit. She also said that she would love to see weather that does not include the rain,

strong head winds and cold temperatures that Linden experienced this year. One of Fosser's most recent races included comparable conditions and she understands, firsthand, what a difference they can make to a race experience and finishing time. Linden's 2018 Boston Marathon finishing time of 2:39:54 was the slowest for a women's open winner in 40 years. It was also more than 17 minutes off her 2011 finishing time, but it was a winning time that will inspire for years. Just ask Fosser. “I know Desiree's Boston victory has encouraged many female runners to keep working toward their goals, whether their first 5K or Boston. Seeing her cross that finish line made me so proud of her and all the other runners out there, too. Challenges make us stronger!” Whether or not the Boston Marathon brings the added challenge of trying weather in 2019, inspired by Linden, Fosser plans to approach the next several months “ready to train hard and get the job done.” Mary Marcia is a runner and fitness professional navigating her way through the unpredictable terrain of life.

Running Through the Bluegrass Dug Deep, Tougher Race With Good Result This marathon cycle I unplugged a little bit. I didn't write training logs. I did a terrible job, frankly, of even updating my logs for my coach to review. I didn't post a lot about running on social media. I also hit taper with mixed feelings. I could see in those aforementioned neglected logs that I had done plenty of work - in fact, higher weekly mileage and better speed work than before Chicago but I just didn't feel like I had worked as hard. Was that because I didn't spend as much time dwelling on my training? Or because I ran more with friends? Or that I ran a lot on the treadmill, which doesn't require as much mental energy? Heading into the Carmel Marathon at Carmel, Indiana, I set myself three fairly clear goals: Place in the top 3; run under 3 hours; don't walk. I talked to my coach, Matt Ebersole of Personal Best Training, about my goals before the race. Of course, I said, there's only so much I can do about who shows up to the race in terms of finishing place - but I felt ready to fight for it. I also told Matt I wanted to run a smarter race than I did at Chicago, where

By Tracy Green

I got sucked in by the energy and went out like a crazy person - and walked several times. We went up on Friday night, did a quick expo trip and ate at a local Italian place. I slept great, woke around 6 a.m. and had coffee, water, and an Rx Bar. I did Jasyoga's race day warm up and race day meditation videos, loaded up my stuff, and headed out. Husband and I dropped our bags at coach's tent, grabbed a friend and did a 13-minute warm-up jog. I had Hammer Nutrition's Fully Charged at 7:30 and a Hammer Gel at 7:45. The weather was around 38 but windy, the wind chill a few degrees cooler. I had stripped down to shorts, singlet, gloves, headband. The wind was expected to pick up as the day went on, getting closer to 15-20 mph by the time I finished. Miles 1-6: 6:39, 6:45, 6:43, 6:40, 6:46, 6:48. I immediately went out a little too

quick, but felt comfortable. I chatted with a few people around and tried to settle in somewhere around 6:45s. The course has quite a few rolling hills, and I knew we'd be turning in and out of the wind, so I didn't panic that the miles weren't exactly the same splits. I wanted to run based on how I felt, not on what the watch said. I saw my husband a few miles in, as he was able to run across the course. I take a gel around here somewhere - my target was around 45 minutes but there wasn't a water stop nearby until mile 7. Miles 7-13: 6:45, 6:41, 6:46, 6:49, 6:49, 6:44 (maybe). For a bit I was in a pretty big pack that included another Louisville guy, so I ran and talked to him for a few minutes before he pulled ahead. Relax, relax, relax. We get on the Monon Trail for a bit and I tried to save that into my memory so I would know the last bits of the race - we'd come the same way for the marathon, but start farther out on the Monon. We come up the hill to the finish area and it's no joke heading into the wind. I miss the 13 mile marker in all the finish area chaos but hit halfway in 1:28:35. Perfect. As I cross, a pace bike takes off with me. “You're second female,” he says as he starts pedaling. Oh! Okay! Miles 14-20: 6:44 (ish), 6:51, 6:47, 6:52, 6:54, 6:56, 6:38.

Personal Best Training members took three marathon podium spots at this year's Carmel Marathon. From left, Collin Trent (second), Kelby Laughner (first), coach Matt Ebersole, Tracy Green (second).

I knew there was a chance I'd come through in second but honestly I thought one or two other women would go through the half fast and I'd try to pick them off later. I expected this so much that I asked my husband to try to get to 14 or so and give me a count so I'd know what I needed to do. I see him and wave excitedly that I'm in second! I was trying to find my rhythm but wasn't feeling it as much as we ran into the wind. There were more hills and bridges than I expected. I had been running a long time. We round a corner at mile 19 and I use the opportunity to sneak a peek backwards. I can see another woman really close. I pick it up. At 20, the other woman has several friends out there cheering for her. I came through in 2:15, with just enough mental capacity to conclude I had 45 minutes to run a 10k to make it under 3. A couple miles later, coach's wife is cheering for me. It came at a great point after the other women's cheer squad and being passed by a few men, I was struggling. The wind was definitely picking up, and the miles I hoped would have a tailwind didn't. I knew there was a bit of a U-turn at 24 that would drop us straight into the wind for the last couple of miles. As we made the tight turn - nearly knocking Ben off his bike in the process - I was able to watch for the woman behind me. She was close, but not as close as she had been. We met back up with the half-marathoners soon after. Thank goodness for Ben. He cleared a path, calling to runners/walkers ahead. So many of them were nice enough to clap and cheer! There's a series of turns at the end … as you come off the Monon Trail, the course opens from a narrow path to two lanes of traffic, which was hard to navigate with all the half-marathoners and coming into the next right-hand turn. Then - up the hill. I knew it would be even steeper and windier the second time, and I was right. You can see it in that last mile split! My husband is there as I make the final right and the downhill finish is very, very welcome. As I run the final stretch, it's lined by PBT teammates and I am pumped. Coach is just past the finish and I cross as second woman in 2:57:35, just 32 seconds slower than my PR and on a much tougher course on a much tougher day. It wasn't a PR, but I met all three of my goals for the day. What's more, I showed myself the first 2:57 wasn't a fluke - I can do it. And I dug deep and fought hard. After, coach said I “gave more instead of giving in.” It's a race performance I'm proud of, for sure.

Inspired Daily The Mile Matters, It's America's Distance … Coaching, like training, is both art and science. I think that's what makes it so interesting and so exciting. I trained and raced for almost two decades before deciding to become a certified running coach. I had one coach all through middle and high school, two different coaches during college, and then was selfcoached for a while. During all that time, I raced distances from 400 meters to the marathon. I had learned a great deal from my coaches, books, and personal experience. I reached a point in my own running that I wanted to learn the best ways to train and, once I started coaching, I wanted to learn the best ways to train others. I wanted to learn it all so I decided to get certified by both the Road Runners Club of America and USA Track and Field. Level I coaching education from both RRCA and USATF gave me the confidence to train anyone at any event in distance road running and track. USATF Level II was a whole other level! It was a week of reading, studying, group projects, and lots of science. Now I discovered the why behind it all. Level II gave me confidence to train anyone at any distance and be able to explain why we do certain workouts and when. Science.

Check! As I have gained more years of coaching experience, I have learned that different people react differently to workouts. I no longer give the same workout to my entire cross country or track team. As I get to know each student-athlete, I find out each person's strengths, weaknesses, and motivation. For example, I discovered that the girls perform better on race day if we do a slightly harder workout two days before while the boys do not. Moving the boys' last hard effort to three days before the race resulted in more success for them. Even within each team/gender, there

Down the Road Running And Cancer Q & A Q. Have you lived long enough? A. A Doctor told me if you lived long enough, you will get cancer. Nobody asked, but yes I got it, so I have to assume I've lived long enough. How about you? Q. What are the types of cancer you can get? A. Too many to name, but they sort into two types. Type one, the minor ones, like some kinds of skin cancer lots of runners get from running for years without using sunscreen, hats or protection against the burning rays of the sun. Remember a sun tan is not a good thing. It means your skin has been injured and turns tan to tell you to stop doing it. It also turns your skin into leather as you get older, but some people must like it since so many people do it. So if you do, you'll get to go to the Dr. every few months to have pre-cancers burned off. It hurts. They use a nitrogen thing and it feels like they are literally burning (instead of freezing) the things off your face, legs, arms etc. These types usually won't interfere with your running. I had

minor surgery when part of my ear lobe had to be removed in 2007 due to a small cancer in it. I was able to recover quickly (no radiation no chemotherapy) and ran the Bridge Run every year thereafter until the untimely car wreck in 2013 a few weeks after the race ended my ability to run. During that period, I won age group division awards at several different races, and even the Grand Masters overall at the Rice Run 5K in Walterboro in 2011, and ran a lot of other ones. Type two, the major ones. These require

major surgery, and then sometimes radiation, and then chemotherapy or immunotherapy, after you've recovered from the surgery. Can I repeat my favorite old joke about surgery? Yes, okay: “The only minor surgery is surgery on somebody else.” You'll appreciate telling this joke to your friends if you have to have surgery. Some of them will even laugh. I'll use a couple of personal examples. My wife Kathy had major surgery to remove a big section of her colon due to cancer. Would you be surprised to learn that it was in 1995? She was not able to run the 1996 Cooper River Bridge Run due to it. But she recovered and came back and won her age group at the 1997 race. Then she won prize money (3rd place Female Grand Master) at that race the next year in 1998. Some people live to prove that cancer doesn't have to end your running and race. Other things can end your running and racing. For example Kathy's Multiple Sclerosis, and my foot damage in the already mentioned 2013 car wreck, when a woman was texting and came across the line and hit us head on. But that is another story. Q. What can you expect if you get cancer? A. A lot of Doctor visits. A lot of tests. A lot of uncertainty as to how bad it is.

Some of the tests are to check that out. Ever had an aspiration? How about a CAT scan, or an MRI or a PET scan? Chances are you will learn more about them than you want to know depending on the location and type of your cancer. Q. Does everybody have to have radiation treatment? A. No. If the doctors are sure they got it all, you won't undergo that treatment. Be glad. Q. What does radiation treatment involve? A. They told me there were 2 main types. One being 6 weeks of low dose treatment. The other being 2 and a half weeks of high dose treatment. The high dose I got was 600 centigrays doses. Most people suffer some hair loss depending on where the treatment occurs. Since mine was high in my throat I have no hair on the lower right side of my face. Good thing I cut off my beard some years ago. The doctor said it may come back, but only a few hairs have, so I only have to shave half my face. Q. How does radiation treatment affect your running? A lot while you are getting it. It makes you feel sick as a dog and tired as if you had just finished a marathon. I can testify that I was able to exercise, but

NORTH CAROLINA Williams, Hulme Win Rock ’n’ Roll Raleigh Half Marathon RALEIGH, N.C. (April 8, 2018) – Approximately 5,000 registered runners aged 12 to 86 took to the streets of Raleigh to participate in the 2018 Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll Raleigh Half Marathon presented by WRAL. With a renewed focus on the core pillars of great music in a community environment, runners of all athletic levels enjoyed taking in the sights and scenery in this charming Southern city. The best-in-class running event kicked off on Saturday with a 5K and 1 Mile race through Dorothea Dix Park. On Sunday, runners from 48 states and 17 countries took off on a tour of downtown Raleigh. An updated route this year featured a flatter course and showcased new parts of the city. The race started on Fayetteville Street and ran towards the historic Capitol building before cruising through the downtown historic district and charming neighborhoods. The course finished at the Red Hat Amphitheater. In the half marathon, Matthew Williams (San Antonio, Texas) broke the tape as the overall champion in a time of 1:08:33. Ethan Clary (Durham, N.C.) finished in second with a time of 1:09:14 as Wesley Turner (Danville, Va.) rounded out the podium in third finishing in 1:10:35. Emily Hulme (Easton, N.C.) was the women’s half marathon champion with a final time of 1:21:36. Morgan Busko Anderson (Winston Salem, N.C.) took the secondplace spot in 1:25:42 and Rhea Deroian (Cary, N.C.) finish third in 1:29:42. Elite runners and fast times aside, Sunday’s race was all about Bringing the Fun to the Run™. Some of North Carolina’s best live bands, including Cosmic Punk and the North Carolina State University Pipes and Drums performed on improved band stages along the route interspersed with themed water stations. Participants moved along to more music than ever with all new mile-

Masters Running and Beyond When the Running Gets Tough, the Tough Go Running! Where would you rather have been on the morning of April 16? On the Boston Marathon course, or in a dentist's chair? I was in the latter, and I consider myself lucky! But I got back from the dentist in time to watch the second half of the race unfold on my TV. I saw elite athletes running in raincoats, many of them dropping out. And I saw Des Linden taking charge in the women's race somewhere on Heartbreak Hill, becoming the first American woman to win Boston in over thirty years. It was a race for the record books, for sure. But not for any record times! Linden's time of 2:39:54 was at least 15 minutes slower than she is capable of under normal circumstances. She was the only woman to break 2:40, and her winning time was the slowest recorded since 1978, when Gayle Barron took home the women's division in 2:44:52. In last year's race, her time wouldn't even have placed her among the top 20 female finishers. So conditions were brutal, to say the least. Pouring rain, cold temperatures, and a gusty wind that blew right into the runners' faces. Still, about 95% of those who started the race made it to the finish. The dropout rate was higher among the elites than the non-elites, and slightly higher among men than women. And the numbers say it all - We runners are tough, and we won't give up easily! Although there are exceptions. At the 1984 Boston Marathon a couple of my buddies made a last minute decision not to run because of downpours in the morning. 1984 was one of two times that I ran Boston (the other was 1979). I remember that the rain stopped right before the start, and during the race we only had light and intermittent rain. I ended up finishing as 10th woman, in the second fastest time of my career. But would I have finished if it continued to pour throughout the race? That's a good question. I have only dropped out of a race once, due to a hamstring injury. However I have been a no-show a few times, for reasons other than illness or injury. At least twice have I opted not to run a race I was signed up for due to excessive heat, and once I stayed home because a nearby wildfire had filled the air with smoke. But the races were held on those days, and people were running! So Boston is not the only race that has been run in adverse conditions. And rain, cold and high winds are not the only kinds of miserable weather that runners could face on race day. There could be heat, ice, snow, even thunder. Occasionally race

directors are forced to cancel their events due to weather, as was the case for several December races in the south and midwest a few years ago when those areas were hit with ice storms. Then there was the 2007 Chicago Marathon, which had to be interrupted mid-race because of unseasonal heat. And I remember a 5K on an extremely windy day in Fuquay-Varina, NC, about 10 years ago, when the whole finish line, timing equipment and all, blew down about 32 minutes into the race. So, runners who had not finished by then did not get a recorded time. I was curious what adverse conditions weather related or otherwise - my friends might have run into during their racing careers. So I asked them, and got quite a collection of stories! Mostly, the adversities were due to cold and rain. Susan Wingate of Fanwood, NJ, and her husband Carl, ran the Napa Valley Marathon in California one year. That year the conditions were similar to this year's Boston Marathon. Cold, windswept rain from start to finish. The weather got worse as the race progressed. It got so bad that volunteers were handing out small plastic bags to runners to cover their torsos, and that's probably what saved the Wingates. But their fingers were frozen, and Susan remembers having trouble opening her Gel packs at the aid stations. It wasn't until after they got back to their hotel room that they finally “thawed out”! Diane McManus of Upper Darby, PA, faced similar conditions during the Mount Washington Road Race in 2002. There were cold, windswept rains, hitting the runners sideways. And since this race goes up a mountain it got colder as they ran, with a 16 degree wind chill at the top! There was ice on the road in some places, and generally very miserable. So the organizers decided to re-set the finish at 3.8 miles, in a race that normally is 7.6 miles. Sometimes pure cold, with no precipitation, can also be a troublemaker. At the Asheville Marathon, in North Carolina, it was so cold one year that the water and

Gatorade on the course froze in their cups. And while living in New Jersey I heard a similar story from a volunteer at a local 10 mile race. New Jersey can have “real” winters, and sometimes they start as early as December which was when this 10 miler was held. The volunteer held a cup of water in his gloved hand, and was reaching his arm out so that a passing runner could grab the watyer. Not only did the runner grab the water cup, but also the glove, which was frozen onto the cup! But no story that I've heard so far can top this one, from Rietta Couper of Chapel Hill, NC. She lived in Tasmania (an island on the south side of Australia) for a few years during the 1990's. While living there she ran a marathon with only 11 participants. The course went through some rural areas with farmland, and about 10 kilometers into the race she came face to face with a bull! The bull was standing in the middle of the road, and there were no other runners nearby. When he started tapping one of his hoofs, Couper sprinted towards a fence, jumped over, took a detour across some farmland, and eventually got back on the course. In spite of this detour Couper was the first woman, out of two. We never know what the weather will be like on race day, at least not when we sign up in advance for an event. Most of us prefer to compete on a cool, dry day with little or no wind. But maybe you are an adventure seeker, looking for adversity because it makes you stronger. Then let me recommend the North Pole Marathon, also known as the “World's Coolest Marathon.” This year's race was held on the same day as Boston, with temperatures in the minus 20's, and attracting about 60 participants. Winner in the men's division was a Greek with a very long name, Argyrious Papathanasopoulos, in 4:34:36. Gouping Xie of China was the first woman to finish, in a time slightly over six hours. All competitors were covered from head to toe in layers of clothing to protect them from the elements. If this sounds like something you would like to try, you may want to know that the next event is scheduled for April 9, 2019! I will stick to more temperate events. Due to fairly recent knee surgery I don't know exactly when I will run my next race, but most likely it will be a local 5K sometime this fall.

INSPIRED DAILY CONTINUED FROM PAGE 13 are so many variables.This is where experience and trial and error result in finding the right workouts for each athlete, the proper timing of those workouts, and how to motivate each athlete to give her or his best effort each day. This is not something that can be taught, like the science part. This comes from experience, getting to know your athletes, and not being afraid to try new workouts and admit when they just don't work. I am in my 16th year of coaching now and I still read and go to coaching clinics to learn new workouts and ways to train. Just last week a few of my athletes and I were laughing, reminiscing about the worst cross country workout I ever had them do. It really did not work for us and left the team feeling discouraged so I knew not to include that workout again. And then in the next breath they were excitedly talking about the toughest track workout we did this spring and how they loved it because they felt it really helped them. That is one I have used sparingly over the past three track seasons. It's tough but it gives them confidence once they have finished it. Art. Check! Peaking at the end of our season as we enter the State Series is always our goal. The State Series in Florida consists of three meets: District, Region, and State. In track and field, an athlete must finish in the top four in an event to advance to the next level, while in cross country a certain number of teams advance based on the number of teams participating, plus the top 15 individuals. I take pride in the fact that we always peak at the end of our seasons and most of my athletes run the best times of their lives during the State Series. It is that combination of art and science that gets us there. Rae Ann Darling Reed runs, coaches, and writes in Florida.

Women’s Running

ZAP Places Three Runners In Top 10 At Boston Race morning for the 122nd Boston Marathon was the worst weather morning ever in the history of the race. Professional runners, qualifiers and charity runners from all 50 states and over 100 countries, having gotten to the starting line, had to figure out how to manage to get to the finish line. The wind was howling, rain was coming down and the temperature hovered in the high 30s. Watching the elite women at the start, proved how tough conditions were as most were bundled in jackets and assorted rain gear. One would suspect that southerners would not fare well but the ZAP athletes who train in Boone, NC, proved that they could manage their energy and get to the finish for top 10 places. The winters in Boone tend to be nasty at times, and this spring proved that to be true, as the three marathoners entered this morning had seen similar conditions during training. Tyler Pennel (4th), Nicole Demercurio (5th) and Joanna Thompson (10th) had ideal build ups and were ready for personal bests. But Mother Nature had a different scenario. Nicole actually went through a period of intense anger as she had gotten into 2:30 shape and all that readiness went out the window of expectation. The afternoon before the race ,I talked with Nicole and told her to run for place and I would see her at the finish. Coach Pete Rea encouraged his athletes to forget their watches, tuck in as they could, conserve their energy, then pick people off as they struggled. Listening to their coach paid handsomely for the three ZAP residents. Rea has been coaching for over 20 years and had never seen racing conditions so severe. Nicole and Joanna came through 10K seconds apart in 25th-30th place. As they made their way to Boston, the wind picked up, the rain continued to pound, and these ladies slowly moved their way through the field. Their patience paid off as they both moved into the top 10 by keeping to go forward. They were passed by ladies they did not know but they were besting the best in distance running. Pennel knew that the brutal conditions meant time was out the window. With the lead pack blazing through the first 10K of the race at 2:07 marathon pace, Pennel was content to run well back of the leaders early. He started the survival grind early. “The toughest part was around mile 14. The group I was running with had started to break up and it was only me and Tim Ritchie working together,” said Pennel. “I

started to get cold and my teeth were chattering. I thought about dropping out because I could feel my teeth chattering, but up ahead I could see a group of guys that we were catching. That was motivation to keep going and I was able to focus on something other than the cold.” Wearing the athlete designed Reebok Floatride Run Fast helped as it is "such a great shoe because it is so light, but has tons of cushioning” shared Pennel. “Reebok uses PEBAX foam for the midsole, which is very light and highly cushioned, and also gives great support and return of energy. Also the upper is very form fitting and there isn't unnecessary material for water to be collected (which helped immensely at Boston).” Pennel passed more than a dozen men in the last half and missed third place by only 22 seconds, finishing in 2:18:57. Despite slight hypothermia, Pennel had left his watch off and just passed runner after runner. He followed his coach's plan to the letter. Pennel said afterward he had no idea where he was in the field but noted that "you've just got to be tough in these conditions, mentally, just keep pushing, that's the thing is you've just got to keep pushing." Pennel ran the 2nd half faster than everyone else in the field with the exception of eventual winner, Yuki Kawauchi of Japan. Nicole Demercurio, who happens to be Pennel's girlfriend was beside herself when she crossed the finish line to hear she was in fifth place. The drop out rate was incredible but she managed to get a fifth place finish among the elite women. I walked a shaking Nicole through the finish area and back to the hotel as she had gotten the luck to be drug tested. Never having gone through that process was a bit daunting as she was cold and we could not locate her clothes. Finally done we returned to her room and dealt with her foot problem and she finally got warm. As we were leaving the drug testing area, 10th place finisher Joanna Thompson was coming into drug testing

as she also managed to get the lucky draw. Three top 10 finishers from the ZAP program is a true tribute to the facility and all of the support. “Having an opportunity to participate in the Boston Marathon was an absolutely amazing experience,” DiMercurio said. “It still feels like a dream come true to even step on the line and race through the streets of Boston. I am incredibly thankful to have the support from ZAP Fitness, Reebok and Generation UCAN that makes a sixth-place finish at Boston possible. Without their support, as well as the support from my friends and family, I wouldn't have been able to accomplish what happened on this rainy, cold and windy day.” ZAP Fitness is located outside Boone, NC, near Blowing Rock. Unlike most American club systems, the runners chosen for ZAP live at the facility full time, training and working at the camp. It is a beautiful but isolated place. ZAP Fitness is a non profit foundation established in 2001 by Zika Rea and her late husband, runner, Andy Palmer. They had a dream for post collegiate athletes to be able to live in a place where they could train and work to achieve their athletic potential. All of their dedication and principles have been having some amazing results. ZAP has been sponsored by Reebok since 2005. Having visited ZAP several times and seen what goes on, it is no surprise to me that success has materialized. The residents have full support for their every need. In return they work at the various camps put on by ZAP throughout the spring, summer and fall for collegiate teams and runners seeking a running retreat/vacation. For those attending camp they get to spend time close to the athletes and see what their lives are like. It is actually a family/village where everyone contributes to the program. With ZAP, it does take a village but what an immense accomplishment these athletes had in Boston. They battled the toughest conditions ever and prevailed at the finish. Many congrats to our southerners who got it done in Boston! Carolyn Mather,R.N.,PhD. lives and runs in north Georgia and is a member of the Atlanta Track Club Elite.

at a limited level. Exhaustion becomes a constant companion. Q. Does everybody have to have Chemotherapy or Immunotherapy treatment, and what is the difference? A. No. These are used for more severe cases, so if you are lucky, as I was with my first cancer, you won't have to have it. The way the melanoma specialist explained it to me is that Chemotherapy is a drug like a shotgun. It blows away everything in its way. But immunotherapy is designed to blast the specific type cancer a person has - more like a sharpshooter. Q . Do Chemo and Immuno have side effects? A. You bet. The list is extensive. I can testify that I saw 10 listed and I have had: 1 Exhaustion (I can't believe I'm sleeping 10 hours a night every night on this drug, 2 fatigue, I get so tired by the afternoon that it is difficult to do anything but sit in a chair, 3 afternoon low grade fever, 4 Colitis (don't ask) but I hope you are good at short sprints (look up colitis symptoms), 5 appetite loss. I always wondered why people would not eat ice cream, candy, cake or other treats to keep weight on. Let me tell you, it is hard to make yourself eat when EVERYTHING tastes like either cardboard or Styrofoam. And anything except water, including colas tastes like sour or bitter mineral water. Oh yeah, they said that being able to taste things sometimes comes back in 6 months or so. As I write this it has been almost 6 months and a little bit of taste is starting to come back. Q. Can you run after cancer surgery and treatment? A. Yes, but check with your doctor. You don't want to burst stitches or cause other problems. Q. What can you say that is encouraging? A. Go back and re-read the answer to the second question. People do recover and get back to running and perform well. Cancer doesn't necessarily mean your life or your running will end. Life is for living. Make the most of it. And maybe by the time you have lived long enough, they will have found a cure for cancer, and an article like this will be looked at as a thing of the past.

SOUTH CAROLINA Cooper River Bridge Run 10K Charleston – 4/7 By Cedric Jaggers The 41st Cooper River Bridge Run was the largest race in South Carolina for the 40th year in a row. This year the race suffered the inevitable participation drop off after a big anniversary race the previous year. There were 27,449 finishers out of 33,383 entrants. It was a very windy 66 degrees when the race began at 8 a.m. The wind was hard and gusty but eased off as the temperature climbed during the race. After the race, a number of runners commented that they ran slower times due to the headwind, and some said it got hot as the breeze dropped and the temp went up. The next day Post and Courier cut its coverage in half by reducing the number of finishers the paper listed in their special Bridge Run section to the top 5,000 males and top 5,000 females names and chip times from previous years’ 10,000 each. The race started fast with Benard Ngeno of Kenya, who led until the runners got off the Bridge and onto Meeting Steet, hitting the one mile mark in 4:15. At 5K there were 3 runners including last year’s winner Shadrack Kipchirchir of Colorado Springs, Colorado who hit the mark in 14:43. Kipchirchir used his strong kick at the finish to win the race for the second year in a row, this time in 28:25, one second ahead of Ngeno, and 13 seconds ahead of third place finisher Aweke Ayalew of Bahrain. The women’s race also had a small pack of 3 hit the 5K mark in the same time of 16:27 and they ended up being the top 3 female finishers. Ethiopians took the top 2 places; Gotytom Gebreslase won in 32:19 with Hiwot Ayalew 2 seconds behind her. Third place went to last year’s winner, Monicah Ngige of Kenya 13 seconds behind the winner. The top USA finisher for the second year in a row was race winner Shadack Kipchirchir in 28:25. Winning USA female finisher, also for the second year in a row was Kaitlin Goodman of Providence, RI in 34:14. Masters Male winner was Kevin Castille, 46 of Baton Rouge, LA in 30:15. Female masters award went to Ginna Reid, 40 of Asheville, NC in 37:15. The Grand Masters winners were Eric Ashton, 50 of Columbia, SC in 33:58 and Rochelle Persson, 50 of Colorado Springs, CO in 40:48. The Senior Grand Masters Awards went to a husband and wife team from North Charleston, SC: 1981 Bridge Run winner Marc Embler, 60 in 38:39 and Ruth-Marie Embler, 60 in 45:09. The Dr. Marcus Newberry award, named for the founder of the race, goes to the top local male and female from the Tri-County (Charleston) area. First place winners were Jacob Baranowski of Charleston, SC who finished 26th overall in 33:08 and Sara Ashton of Daniel Island, SC who was the 20th female finisher in 36:09. In the wheelchair division, Jose Pulido of Clarkesville, GA was champion in 31:04. The female winner was Michelle Wheeler of Boalsburg, PA in 38:42. Wheelchair Masters winner was Ulysses Elijah, 61 of Decatur, GA in 35:23. There were no female wheelchair masters participating. The Dewey Wise award for oldest runner who runs a time faster than his or her age was won by Lawrence Middaugh of Sullivan’s Island, SC. The 79 year old finished in 64 minutes and 13 seconds. The Terry Hamlin award for Mobility Impaired participants went to Jeff Nolan of North Charleston, SC in 1:51:29 and Donna Lord of Goose Creek, SC in 2:04:21

In addition to the prize money division which was awarded based on Gun Time, the Bridge Run presented awards 3 deep in each age group based on Chip Time. A finisher medal was given to everyone who finished the race. Full results: http://bridgerun.com/results-awards/

30,000 Registered Runners at St. Jude Rock ’n’ Roll Nashville NASHVILLE, TN (April 28, 2018) – Approximately 30,000 registered runners from age 12 to 86 took to the streets of Music City this weekend to participate in the 19th running of the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Marathon & Half Marathon. With a renewed focus on the core pillars of Bringing Fun to the Run™ with great music in a community environment, runners of all athletic levels enjoyed the sights and sounds of Nashville. The best-in-class running event kicked off on Thursday evening with a 1 Mile Race at Nissan Stadium along Cumberland Park that included entertainment from the all-female group Kitty Hawk and Top 4 finalist from American Idol, Jessica Meuse. The main event took place on Saturday, with runners from all 50 states and 37 countries taking off on a tour of Nashville. While this year saw some course alterations, the race still started on Broadway taking runners past the honky tonks of downtown Nashville. Runners passed numerous landmarks including Music Row, Belmont University and Bicentennial Mall. The course lead participants past the Schermerhorn Symphony, Music City Center and the Musical Roundabout before finishing outside of Nissan Stadium, home of the NFL Tennessee Titans. In the marathon, Scott Wietecha (Hendersonville, Tenn.) broke the tape as the overall champion for the sixth straight year in a row finishing in 2:28:19. Madut Garang (Lebanon, Tenn.) finished in second with a time of 2:29:54 as Kevin Fink (Tipp City, Ohio) rounded out the podium in third by finishing in 2:39:03. Stella Christoforou (Campbell, Ky.) was the women’s marathon champion with a final time of 2:53:47. Heather Crowe (Palatine, Ill.) took the second-place spot in 3:07:48 and Cristina Noble (Brighton, Mich.) finish third in 3:08:22. Marathon finishers were treated to a brand new redcarpet finish and recovery zone that included massages and catered food. In the half marathon, Roosevelt Cook (Hesperia, Calif.) won the race in 1:09:27. Lucas Cotter (Signal Mountain, Tenn.) was second with a time of 1:09:55. Nick French (Nashville, Tenn.) followed in third place in 1:10:40. Gisela Olalde (Nashville, Tenn.) was the women’s champion with a final time of 1:19:50 with Lauren Hixon (Westminster Colo.) next behind her at 1:22:20. Amy Robillard (Montgomery, Ohio) rounded out the podium in 1:22:38. Elite runners and fast times aside, Saturday’s races were all about the party atmosphere. Some of Nashville’s best live bands performed on improved band stages along the route, interspersed with cheerleaders and themed water stations. Participants moved along to more music than ever with all new mile-markers that included speakers and race pacers who ran with mobile speaker packs. Ryan Weaver and Jessica Meuse treated runners to the national anthem while Jillian Cardarelli entertained the crowd at the finish line festival. Later, runners and spectators were to celebrate at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert Series at Ascend Amphitheater headlined by 5-time Grammy nominee Hunter Hayes with Erin Kinsey as the opener. The weekend concludes tomorrow with the one-mile KiDS ROCK at Nissan Stadium. For complete results or for information on next year’s event, visit RunRocknRoll.com/Nashville.

Washington, D.C. Yimer, Diriba Wins Cherry Blossom 10 miler WASHINGTON, DC, April 8 — On his first trip to America, 21-year-old Jemal Yimer broke away from a dwindling lead group in the last mile of the Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run to win the race in a time of 46:17. His compatriot Buze Diriba won the women’s race in 53:45 after finishing second here the past two years. In a race full of stories, another highlight was 60-year-old Joan Benoit Samuelson’s singleage and 60-64 age group record for women of 1:07:56. Given the dire weather forecast of snow on Saturdaynight earlier in the week, runners and race organizers were delighted to awake to clear blue skies and peak cherry blossoms this morning. While it was a cold 35 degrees at the start, conditions were ideal for racing, though it was a bit too windy for really fast times up front. This year’s race, often called The Runner’s Rite of Spring®, was the Professional Road Racing Organization’s (PRRO) 2018 Championship event as well as the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) National Championship. As such, there was a total of $14,900 paid to eligible runners, on top of the usual $90,000 in prize money and bonuses on offer. As broken down below, today’s actual payout totaled $79,900. A large pack of over 20 men ran together through five miles, with 15 men still side-by-side at seven miles, when eventual third place finisher Philip Langat dropped the pace from 4:37 to 4:26 over the eighth mile. This had the effect of reducing the single-file line of leaders to just five runners. Langat continued to push the pace, and was joined at the front by eventual second-place finisher Aweke Ayalew Yimer and winner Jemal Yimer. At the finish, times were close for the top three, with Aweke Ayalew Yimer running 46:22 and Langat running 46:25, in comparison to Jimal Yimer’s 46:17. Top American Chris Derrick, who ran at the front of the pack through 10 kilometers before dropping to as far back as eighth place, rallied to finish fifth overall in a time of 46:53. Jimal Yimer, who is looking forward to a little sightseeing in our Nation’s Capital before heading home, won a total of $10,500 - $8,000 for the overall win, and $2,500 for becoming the 2017-2018 PRRO Champion. He also became the 2018 RRCA National 10 Mile Champion. Aweke Ayalew Yimer, from Burundi, won $4,000 for his second place effort; Kenyan Philip Langat won $2,000 for third place; Kenyan James Kibet won $1,500 for his 46:36 fourth place effort; Chris Derrick won a total of $6,000 - $1,000 for fifth place and $5,000 for being first American; early pace setter Edwin Kibichiy, of Kenya, won $900 for his 46:55 sixth place

more results at running.net effort; and Libyan Mohamed Hrezi won $800 for his 46:58 seventh place run. American Abbabiya Simbassa won a total of $4,400 for his 47:04: $700 for eighth place, $2,500 for second American and $1,200 for being the first male RRCA Road Scholar or Run Pro Camper (Simbassa was a RunPro Camper in 2016). Rounding out the top-ten overall were Americans Matthew McClintock - ninth in 47:10 - and Andrew Colley, tenth in 47:12. McClintock’s check for the day totaled $2,100 ($600 for ninth overall and $1,500 for third American), while Colley’s totaled $1,500 ($500 for tenth overall and $1,000 for fourth American). Josh Izewski won $800 for his 47:26 as fifth American: Tyler McCandless was sixth American in 48:34 and won $600; Kiya Dandena was seventh American in 48:37 and won $400; John Crain ran 49:16 to win $300 as the eighth American runner; Luke Puskedrawon $200 for his 49:28 ninth place American finish; and Mark Leiningerwon $200 for his 49:30 tenth-place American effort. Through the middle miles of the women’s race, Ethiopian compatriots Buze Diriba and Hiwot Gebrekidan, who won here last year, took shelter behind four other runners: Ethiopians Hiwot Yemer and Alemitu Hawi, American Diane Nukuri, and Kenyan Vicoty Chepngeno. At the finish, Diriba prevailed in a time of 53:45 to win $18,000 and the titles of 2017-2018 PRRO Champion and 2018 RRCA National 10 Mile Champion. Diriba’s payday was considerably larger than men’s winner Jemal Yimer’s $10,500 because, as the winner of the 2017 Lilac Bloomsday 12K PRRO Circuit Race, she won the PRRO Super Bonus of $10,000, which only winners of 2017-18 PRRO Circuit Races were eligible to win. Gebrekidan, who finished just three seconds behind Diriba in 53:48, won $4,000; Yemer ran 53:51 to finish third and win $2,000; Hawi was fourth in 53:53 and won $1,500; Nukuri won a total of $6,000 for her 53:56 fifth place overall ($1,000) and top American finish ($5,000); while Chepngeno won $900 for her 53:59 sixth place effort. American runners rounded out the overall top-ten, with Emma Bates finishing seventh overall and second American, and winning a total of $4,500 for her 54:45 run ($800 for seventh, $2,500 for second American, and $1,200 for being the first female RRCA Road Scholar or Run Pro Camper - she was a 2017 RRCA Roads Scholar grant recipient). Bethany Sachtleben ran 54:59 to win $2,200 for her eighth place overall ($700) and third-place American finish ($1,500); Samantha Bluske ran 55:19 and won $1,600 ($600/$1,000); and Alaphine Tuliamuk was the final “double dipper,” winning $1,300 total ($500/$800) for her tenth place overall and fifth American 55:43 run. Over 27,000 runners submitted applications to participate in the 2018 Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile and 5K Run-Walk, and the list of accepted runners represented all 50 states and 14 foreign countries. There were 16,661 official finishers in the Ten Mile and 2,529 in the 5K Run-Walk. The 2018 event marked the 17th year of title sponsorship by Credit Union Miracle Day. Since 2002, over $8 million has been raised for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, including $380,000 from this year’s race. Full results: http://www.cherryblossom.org/

Atlanta To Host 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials!

April 23, 2018 -- The road to Tokyo will run through Atlanta, Georgia. USA Track & Field and the U.S. Olympic Committee announced Monday that Atlanta will host the 2020 Olympic Team Trials – Marathon. The race will determine the six athletes who will represent the United States in the marathon at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. 2020 U.S. Olympic Team Trials - Marathon

Coming to Atlanta“Atlanta is Running City, USA,” said Rich Kenah, Executive Director of Atlanta Track Club which led the efforts to bring the race to Atlanta and will serve as the Local Organizing Committee. “We are excited to show America’s best distance runners why we claim that title. We are equally as excited to give the people of Atlanta the chance to cheer on these athletes as they chase their Olympic dream on our streets.”

Starting in Centennial Olympic Park, the 2020 Olympic Team Trials – Marathon will be held on Saturday, February 29, 2020 in conjunction with Publix Atlanta Marathon weekend. The course, which is still being finalized, will start and finish in Centennial Olympic Park and take competitors through Midtown Atlanta, Piedmont Park, Historic Old Fourth Ward, and underneath Atlanta’s iconic Olympic rings and cauldron. Kenah pointed out that the strength and dedication of Atlanta's running community was a deciding factor in the Club's decision to bid for the event. It became a major selling point for the committee that ultimately chose Atlanta over three other bidding cities. "Atlanta Track Club has more than 120,000 finishers at its events, 29,000 members, 10,000 active volunteers and a decades long history supporting high school and youth running. It is our intention to bring this community together in a grand celebration of running on the weekend of February 29, 2020," said Kenah. As part of the bid, Atlanta Track Club developed a first-of-its-kind revenue share with the athletes and committed to cover travel expenses of all qualified athletes regardless of their ranking. “The athlete experience was the foundation of our bid to bring the trials to Atlanta,” said Kenah. “We plan to deliver a race weekend where all qualifiers are treated like U.S. champions.” Kenah explained 60% of any money generated by the trials will go back to the Club to cover the cost of the event. The remaining 40% will go back to the Athletes Advisory Committee of USA Track & Field to be distributed among the competitors. “This is about giving back to the sport,” said Kenah. “To preserve Atlanta’s Olympic Legacy, it

is imperative that we invest in the Olympic future. The future is all of the athletes who qualify for the 2020 Olympic Team Trials – Marathon.” “Atlanta’s legacy in the sport, their creative commitment to athlete support, and the experience of their event management team were compelling,” USATF CEO Max Siegel said in a release. USATF looks forward to working with Atlanta Track Club, the City of Atlanta and the U.S. Olympic Committee on what promises to be an amazing 2020 Olympic Trials Marathon” The 2020 Olympic Team Trials – Marathon adds yet another high profile sporting event to Atlanta’s calendar. Under the leadership of the Atlanta Sports Council, which worked with Atlanta Track Club to secure the Trials, Atlanta has hosted the 2018 College Football Playoff Championship game and will host the 2019 Super Bowl and the 2020 NCAA Basketball Men's Final Four. The qualifying window for the 2020 Olympic Team Trials – Marathon is open now. Men must run 2:19:00 or faster for the full marathon or 1:04:00 or faster the half marathon to be eligible. Women must run 2:45:00 or faster for the full marathon or 1:13:00 or faster for the half marathon to be accepted into the race. The top three finishers in the 2020 Olympic Team Trials – Marathon will be named to the 2020 U.S. Marathon team. They will also receive part of a prize purse totaling $480,000. The Publix Atlanta Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K will be held March 1, 2020. It will not be run on the same course as the Olympic Team Trials Marathon. The course for the Publix Atlanta Marathon is being designed this spring and will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Last year, more than 1.2 million people from 187 countries pledged to run 8.2 million miles on Global Running Day. The day received twice the number of media impressions compared to the prior year, with running activities taking place across the globe from New Zealand to New York. In 2018, more cities and countries are expected to activate on the day, with events ranging from fun runs to virtual races. Many of the world’s top professional runners will be serving as role models and inspirations for the next generation of stars on the day, including three-time London Marathon and three-time New York City Marathon winner Paula Radcliffe. “Global Running Day is such a wonderful initiative to spread the love and joy of running across the world,” Radcliffe said. “No sport is more inclusive or easier to take up, and the health and social benefits of running are immeasurable. Running has brought me so much, and I love nothing better than to share it with others.” Thirteen-time Paralympic medalist and fivetime New York City Marathon winner Kurt Fearnley, fresh off a Commonwealth Games marathon victory, is also serving as a massive supporter of Global Running Day by inspiring the next generation of elite wheelchair racers. “Global Running day is fast approaching, and the world is brighter place when we’re able to get moving,” Fearnley said. “Start talking and make a pledge about how you’ll be running on Global Running Day. I’ll be in my racing wheelchair, knocking out some miles. That’s what my running looks like. However you are able to run,

lock it in, and join me and other runners around the world to enjoy the magic and freedom of moving your body and check out how far or fast you can run. I think you may surprise yourself.” Running organizations and groups, individuals, school administrators, coaches, and parents can visit GlobalRunningDay.org to pledge, explore group runs and other events happening around the world, and find information on running activities for people of all ages and abilities. The world is welcome to engage with Global Running Day socially by using the #GlobalRunningDay hashtag and creating a customized Global Running Day bib. Global Running Day toolkits for events, communications and social media are also available on the website.
