Distance Memories 40-Time Loser at Peachtree Road Race Possibly by the time you read this I will not have won the Peachtree Road Race (PRR) in Atlanta for the 40th year in a row. When people find out how many times I've run the PRR they invariably ask me if I've ever won. When I tell them 'everyone's a winner at Peachtree, I can smell the disappointment oozing from their pores. When I counter by telling them that running Peachtree isn't comparable to firing a shotgun blindly at a flock of geese - you know chances are good you'll hit one regardless of your aim - it doesn't seem to lessen the impact of me failing to win the race at least once in four decades of trying. Although I won a 'Top 1,000' finisher mug 11 years in a row, I never ran fast enough to earn a coveted spot for the awards ceremony following the race in Piedmont Park. When I first moved to the Atlanta area in 1979. I went to a local running store to register for the PRR and I told the young man behind the counter I wanted to run for the Atlanta Track Club. He then asked me what my times were for 10-kilometers (6.2 miles, the distance of the PRR) and when I said I could regularly break 40 minutes he seemed disappointed. Apparently he thought I wanted to run for the ATC's competitive team, which meant I should be running 10K's eight or nine minutes faster. Flash forward 15 years and I was running for the ATC's competitive team. Well, the men's masters team anyway -- for those 40 years or older. I ran for them for almost a decade until I transitioned to running races of distances far longer than 10 kilometers and lost some of my speed at the shorter distances. Ironically, the year I won the men's national championship in the 24-hour run was the year I no longer ran fast enough to qualify for the competitive team. But that didn't dampen my spirit to run the PRR. I realized my faster days were behind me when I ran my slowest Peachtree in many, many years in 2006 -a little more than a week after I had run 100 miles in the mountains of California. My legs were hammered, and after coasting through the first three miles of Peachtree (mostly downhill), the heat, hills and humidity of the last three miles took their collective toll. It was on that day that I knew I would never run another competitive Peachtree Road Race. And I was OK with that. I set new goals: Running my time in age (i.e. 55 minutes when I was 55), running with friends and finding out what it would be like to start at the very back of all 60,000 runners in the race (It's exactly like they say: If you're not the lead dog, the view never changes). So while not winning the Peachtree Road Race for the 40th year in a row, I'd like to say that it's been a good run. Next year when the PRR celebrates its golden

anniversary I can't say for certain I'll be there, but I do know of one gentleman who wouldn't miss it for the world. That would be the incredible Bill Thorn, the only person who has run every Peachtree Road Race since the inaugural one back in 1970. Bill is a personal hero of mine, not only for his running prowess but also because of his career as the uber-successful cross country coach of Landmark Christian School in Fairburn, Georgia. In fact the 'Bill Rose' character in my book 'Best Foot Forward' is my personal tip-ofthe-hat to Coach Thorn. And next year, when he crosses the finish line of the Peachtree Road Race for the 50th time, I'll take a little bit of comfort in knowing that even the distinguished Bill Thorn never hit one of those elusive geese with his shotgun. 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.

As runners, maybe we just can't help but be uncomfortable. After all, racing as an exercise is being uncomfortable. So when my sports chiropractor came out with a new myofascial release tool … I was in. I went by his office, Kentucky Sports Chiropractic, for a demonstration and explanation of this new torture device, which looks like a therapy band with four golf ball halves attached. Launched about six months ago, Dr. Kyle Bowling created the CTM Band to improve on tools already on the market. It stands for “compression, tension, movement” - the three things required for actual myofascial release. Backtracking a bit, self myofascial release is the technical term for when you're using a foam roller, stick roller, lacrosse ball or compression band. Your fascia connects your muscles and tissues and can get “bunched up” if you will. These release techniques are designed to help relieve the pressure points and smooth things back out. But, Kyle says, it's a bit like Goldilocks. “When I ask people what treatment they've been doing at home, they frequently say they've been using these tools but they just can't quite get in the right spot,” he said. And, research has shown that you need compression, tension and movement simultaneously to affect a response in the tissue. That combination is nearly impossible to achieve on your own with existing tools. Kyle, a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic Florida and former collegiate runner, was inspired to bring several tools together. “Floss bands are great, but there's still that feeling of wishing you could get a little bit deeper,” he said. “I started first with stealing my kids' little bouncy balls and gluing them to attach them to a band.”

By Tracy Green

In essense, the CTM Band combines flossing and lacrosse ball techniques into one device. And then he assembles it in his basement. Really. “There's that 11 p.m. to 2 a.m. window after the kids have gone to bed where I go downstairs and assemble them,” he said. In February, he and his wife welcomed their third child. Basically, the man does not sleep. “There will come a point where I can't keep up with assembling them at home,”

Kyle said. That time may come sooner rather than later. The CTM Band has already shipped to 37 states and 12 countries, with the likes of Boston Marathon champion Wesley Korir using it. Several other elite runners use it, as well as three DI running programs. Oh, and a few NFL teams and some professional motocross riders. “Our current model is best for extremities,” Kyle said. “Plantar fasciitis, foot pain, runners knee, calves, quads, hamstrings, shin splints …” But in addition to all the common running problem areas, the CTM Band also works well on the arms - shoulders and elbows in particular. Each band comes with four removable attachments. How many you use depends on the body part, although I'd recommend two as a good starting point (one if using on your feet). Situation the attachments so they apply pressure where you feel like you need it, then wrap the band tightly around the attachments and around your leg or arm. Tight! “We're using it as a very short term tourniquet so your body will send a rush of blood to the area when it's removed,” Kyle said. A good reminder to not exceed the two-minute mark with the CTM Band on one area! Of course, the band requires an educational component, so Kyle has created online videos to provide instruction. And, while many of us think of myofascial release as something to do after we run, Kyle advocates using the CTM Band to warm up. “Many of the injuries we get are from not warming up properly - doing too much too soon,” he said. “We can prepare these areas for the repetitive motion of running by using the CTM Band first.” And before you say you don't have time … “Two minutes is the target time per body part,” Kyle said. “Stimulating blood flow, loosening up connective tissues, and taking them through a range of motion is a really good pre-run routine.” When I told Kyle my idea of warming up was walking down the stairs and out the door, he suggested I simply put the CTM Band on before walking down the stairs. Genius! "Compression, tension, movement - if we have those three things simultaneously, we can truly cause a release in the tissue.” Learn more and access videos at Tracy Green is a runner and writer living in Louisville, KY, where she lives with her husband, Chris.

The Athlete’s Kitchen


Sports Nutrition: #ScienceNotOpinion Running performance starts with fueling, not training! The best way to fuel to be a better runner seems to be a debatable topic these days. To keep on top of the science regarding food, exercise & performance, I look to SCAN, the Sports & Cardiovascular Nutrition practice group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). Here are some tidbits of information from this year’s 35th annual meeting in Keystone CO, May 2018 (#SCANSymposium) • In your search for sports nutrition information, Leslie Bonci RD CSSD wants you to find #ScienceNotOpinion and #FactsOverFallacy. Here’s some of what science supports: —Exercising in a fasted stated leads to muscle breakdown. Think twice before eating nothing before your morning run. —The keto diet does not enhance performance, but rather leads to a down-regulation of the enzymes needed by carbohydrates to fuel a surge or a winning sprint to the finish line. —Whole30 and Intermittent Fasting are just two more fads to add to the list of unsuccessful diets. You never want to embark upon a diet you won’t maintain for the rest of your life. Otherwise, diet backlash (binge eating, weight gain) takes it toll. Learn how to eat smarter, not diet harder! —Carb-phobia refuses to go away, despite the plethora of research supporting the performance benefits of a carb-based sports diet. #Don’tDreadTheBread. • Omega-3 fats (DHA, EPA) found in oily fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel) are related to brain health. Animal research (rats, mice) suggests giving intravenous DHA within an hour after brain or spinal cord injury contributes to better outcomes regarding recovery. Would the same help athletes? Could DHA help with reducing the damage done by brain injuries? According to Michael Lewis MD, athletes, war fighters, and others at high risk for getting concussed should consider taking 3,000 mg. EPA + DHA per day as a protective strategy. Omega-3s can also help treat depression, and that might help reduce suicides. Among soldiers with adequate levels of omega-3, the suicide-rate was 62% lower than soldiers with low blood levels of DHA. • Should runners take anti-oxidant supplements? Likely not, according to exercise physiologist Scott Powers PhD of the University of Florida in Gainesville. The body has a natural balance of pro-oxidants and anti-oxidants. An imbalance can lead to muscular fatigue and molecular damage. Anti-oxidant supplements can down-regulate the body’s natural production of anti-oxidants, and that can blunt the training response. Runners can ingest a performance enhancing balance of anti-oxidants (including vitamins C & E, zinc, carotenoids, and polyphenols) via all sorts of colorful fruits and vegetables: blueberries, strawberries, tart cherry juice, grape juice, broccoli, spinach, carrots.... • The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, along with the American College of Sports Medicine and Dietitians of Canada, have created guidelines on nutrition for athletes. ( But what about nutrition for fitness exercisers and weekend warriors? If that’s you, exercise physiologist Asker Jeukendrup PhD of suggests you match your nutritional guidelines to your athletic goals. That is, are you running for fitness? to be an elite athlete? or just to invest in have fun? When it comes to fueling during extended exercise, Jeukendrup stated the recommendations are similar for both serious runners and less fit joggers: For running that lasts

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

from 60 to 90 minutes, you want to maintain high energy by consuming from 30 to 60 grams of carbohydrate (120 to 240 calories) per hour of exercise (this includes what you eat right before you start to run). If you are doing extended training for more than two hours, you might want to target a bit more, up to 60 to 90 grams carh (240 to 360 calories) per hour, depending on body size (more) and intensity of exercise (less). Start at the low end of the range and train your gut (the gut is trainable!) to tolerate the amount of fuel that maintains high energy, enhances your performance, and boosts your enjoyment. • An estimated 35 million Americans are older than 65. By 2030, 70 million Americans will exceed the age of 85. Unfortunately, as we age, we lose muscle strength. That loss is associated with frailty and falls. Because the daily diet of an estimated 25% to 40% of older people lacks adequate protein, muscle loss gets exacerbated. Research suggests that older people, including runners, should increase their protein intake to 1.4 g to 1.6 g/kg per day, and up to 40 grams after hard exercise. Exercise physiologist Robert Murray PhD of reports this could help boost the muscle-building response to exercise. If you are an older runner who weighs 150 pounds (68 kg), this means. 95 to 110 gram protein per day. That’s about 25 grams, four times a day—much more than in a bowl of oatmeal or a handful of nuts! • The health risks of yoyo dieting are more harmful than the (short-lived) benefits of weight loss. Julie Duffy Dillon RD of the Love, Food podcast reminds us that weight cycling (yoyo dieting) contributes to malnutrition, muscle loss, reduced metabolic rate, and feelings of deprivation. The binge-eating that occurs upon “blowing the diet” is linked to fat gain, inflammation, elevated blood pressure, and insulin resistance—to say nothing about disordered eating. Dieting is the #1 predictor of who will develop an eating disorder. • According to sports dietitian Nanna Meyer PhD RD of the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs, climate change is here. It’s time for all athletes to think more about how we can be good Food Citizens and take better care of the earth that we enjoy. This could be by eating locally grown foods, choosing more plant foods, buying sustainably farmed fish, using fewer plastic water bottles, eating less food in wrappers, and buying from local farmers. We want to eat with integrity and respect for the planet! Nancy Clark, MS, RD counsels both casual and competitive athletes at her office in Newton, MA (617-795-1875).

Learning from the Young Guns Benefiting from Summer Heat It is well documented that many of the world's best distance runners live or train at altitude part of the year. While spending weeks at a time away from home at altitude training camp is commonplace for many American professional runners, it's an impractical luxury for most of us. And while the thought of escaping to the cool mountain air during the summer is tantalizing, research has shown heat training to have similar performance benefits to altitude training. The mechanisms that lead to those performance benefits differ, but the keys to reaping the benefits of both are strikingly similar. Just like altitude, training in summer heat and humidity can just as easily break you down as it can build you up. The first 10-14 days of hot weather is the acclimation period where the weather hits you the hardest. The warm days that cause us to wilt in April and May feel like a cool fall days by the time July and August arrive because of that acclimation process. That's not to say running in hot weather ever is easy as running in cool, dry conditions, but once you're acclimated your body does manage it better. When athletes go to altitude for the first time the adaptation period can take up to 3-4 weeks, but the initial dip in performance is similar to that of adapting to the heat. According to Dr. Robert Chapman, the Associate Director of Sports Science and Medicine who oversees altitude-training camps for many of American's best distance runners, “training intensities and volumes should be adjusted (reduced) to avoid over training and allow better acclimatization.� He could have just as easily been dispensing advice about heat acclimatization as altitude acclimatization. The thought that the summer heat could actually improve your performance sounds so foreign because few heed that piece of advice. Training in the heat and humidity will slow you down just like altitude will, and if you don't adjust your training appropriately you're at high risk of over training. Acclimating to the heat doesn't make training in the summer easy,

By Ryan Warrenburg, ZAP Fitness

and it doesn't mean your races in the heat will suddenly be faster than fall or spring, but it does mean that if you adjust your training properly your fitness can benefit greatly. East African athletes who have lived at higher elevations for generations still run faster at sea level than they do at altitude, and unfortunately no matter how well acclimated you are to heat and humidity you'll still run faster in cool weather. The late Dr. David Martin was one of the exercise physiologists responsible for the heat-training program marathoners Deena Kastor and Meb Keflezighi followed ahead of the 2004 Athens Olympic Games where both medaled in the marathon, and he advised people to avoid hard workouts if the combined heat and humidity was over 165. In those conditions your body can't effectively dissipate heat and you're likely to do more harm than good by attempting a high intensity workout. Dr. Jack Daniels, one of the leading exercise physiologists in the history of long distance running, has a useful online calculator for adjusting your paces on warmer days. However, no calculator or training plan can be inside your body. You know your body better than anyone, and being able to understand the effort you're putting out in a way that is independent from pace is critical to managing heat and humidity. Easy days must remain at a conversational pace, even if the pace is slower than what you think it should. One training adjustment you can make to keep from over cooking your workouts

is to shorten the intervals you're running. If you're scheduled to do a long tempo effort on a hot and humid afternoon, you're better off breaking the workout into tempo intervals. With long, steady workouts it's very difficult to keep your core temperature from soaring on hot and humid days. Adding some short recovery pieces can keep your effort in the right place overall. For example, try breaking a 30-minute tempo run into 5 x 6 minutes with a slow 75-90 second recovery jog between each. The recovery jog will help bring your heart rate down a little bit so it doesn't continue to climb as it works harder and harder to cool your body. In those instances it is very easy for a tempo workout to turn into a race effort. You can also lean more heavily on workouts like fartleks and hill repeats during the summer because in addition to having rest intervals, they are also structured to be more effort based than time based. Another more obvious key to managing summer training is staying properly hydrated. This is true of altitude training as well due to increased ventilation and drier air. Being chronically dehydrated will impair your performance but also your ability to recover day to day. It's good practice, especially in the southeast, to weigh yourself before and after your run each day. Aim to replace every 1-pound of weight lost during your run with 16 ounces of fluid. You'll also lose electrolytes like sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium through sweat. It's important to replace electrolytes along with water to maintain proper fluid balance in the body. Managing recovery is critical during the summer because the heat and humidity are an added stress placed on our bodies, on top of the stress of daily training. Managing the environmental stress is where most people falter in the summer. We're used to managing the training stress, but once summer hits we do a poor job of taking into account the impact environmental stress has on our training. However, with the proper adjustments to

training intensity, attention to hydration, and a focus on proper recovery the summer heat can help take your performance to the next level.

After the Run Walking & Running to the Beat of Her Own Drum A year and a half ago, 32-year old Rachel Saintfort could be called a mom, and an aspiring musician, but she could not be called a runner. That's because, at almost 300 pounds, Saintfort was severely obese, suffered from Lymphedema (waterretention swelling of her legs), and found it challenging to move without becoming fatigued and running out of breath. “My health and music career were [some of the] reasons that I had to do what I had to do,” Saintfort said - but just what was it, that Saintfort felt she had to do? Having been denied opportunities in the music industry because of her weight and having her 10-year old daughter taunted by classmates who called her mother “fat,” Saintfort (who was realizing the effects her weight was having on her physical health) resolved to take serious action. She set a goal of losing 100 pounds, and she set out to lose the pounds naturally. To aid her efforts, Saintfort turned to the sport of running to help her meet the goal. January 29th of 2017 was the official “start date” of Saintfort's weight loss journey. Her plan was simple - limit her daily caloric intake and knock out six to twelve miles by exercising twice per day. Simple plans are not always easy plans, but Saintfort was tenacious.

Rachel Saintfort BEFORE losing the 100+ pounds

By Mary Marcia Brown

“I vowed to never quit, no matter how many times I missed,” she said. “I went hard! I literally had no days off. I was so determined.” Saintfort arrived at a local lake in her hometown of Lakeland, Florida every morning at 5:00. The lake is framed by a lit, 3-mile paved trail that Saintfort decided would work perfectly for her daily miles. She began by walking one to two laps around the lake each morning only to return each evening to complete an additional lap or two. “It would take me one hour to go around Lake Hollingsworth when I first started my weight loss journey,” Saintfort shared. The singer began listening to music while she circumnavigated the lake. She

found listening to the music to be therapeutic, allowing her to clear her mind, and perhaps even pick up her pace. A month into her journey, Saintfort began to incorporate a slow running pace into her laps. “I would walk to one light pole then jog to the next. Or I would jog for an entire song that was playing on my phone and then walk the next one,” she recalled. Some of those songs were her own original recordings. Saintfort used her laps to listen to and critique her music and discover the places in the phrases where she could improve. The miles became a way to increase the quality of her craft while accelerating the pace of her strides. “I always wanted to run around the entire lake. I would admire others doing it and knew that my day was coming,” she said. Saintfort's friend, Kristina Collins, was one of those admired runners. Collins would run a slow pace around the lake and Saintfort would always do her best to keep up. Finally, Saintfort's persistent efforts paid off, and before she knew it, she had run the entire 3-mile trek without stopping. “Completing an entire lap around the lake for the first time felt amazing! This was something that I watched others do

and only hoped to do. I felt unstoppable! I was so happy! I went from barely walking to completing a 3-mile jog nonstop,” Saintfort said. She also did something else. She achieved her 100-pound weight loss goal in a matter of 10 months. Since then, she has lost another 10 pounds and is on her way to losing 10 more. She has also continued her newfound healthy way of living and can now complete the 3-mile lake loop in just over 40 minutes. Like many runners, Saintfort, who initially turned to running as a way to lose weight, has already set new running goals. She has worked her way up to a one and a half-lap run around the lake and she aspires to run two full laps without slowing her pace. She also has completing her first official 5k on her radar. For now, however, she continues to create and listen to her own music while relishing in the realization that running helped her reach her first goal. She also continues to encourage others by sharing her incredible weight loss story through her lyrics and her conversations. “Running definitely helped me on my weight loss journey,” she said. “[It] can be very intimidating, but one can definitely do it. It just takes patience.” Mary Marcia is a runner and fitness professional navigating her way through the unpredictable terrain of life.

Down the Road How And Why To Build Your Own Race Database You may not even think about it, but someday you probably will. Who was running just ahead of me and who was just behind me that day when I ran my 5K Personal Best (or personal worst) or just some random race you ran? No problem, just go to the internet and Google or Bing or (my favorite) DuckDuck.Go search engine, look up the race, and pull up the results from their website. Simple, right? Maybe, but there are some problems. Such as races that don't store their results or list their results anywhere except on the finish line service website. So you have to find the finish line service name and address. Okay. You've got it made right? Well, not exactly. Some race services only show the current year results, or just this year and last year. You are out of luck unless they also posted the results on a site that keeps them there and goes back in time. There are also some race services, particularly some that use so called 'Live' results and have only searchable, non-copy able results. I won't say what I think of those sites, except, hey they are better than nothing. But they don't give much consideration to runners who care about the big picture of looking at the results of all the finishers and like to have a copy to refer back to in the

future. Races should be listed with the runners by order of finish. But wait, some races are NOT in actual finish order. Computer chip timing allows the order to be re-arranged by the computer into Chip finish order instead of actual finish order. So runners may or may not be shown as the people who finished next to you. Instead it might be that guy or gal who waited a little while until the rain stopped or the headwind died down and then ran a minute or 2 faster than your 'chip time' - even though they crossed the finish line behind you and have always finished behind you when you ran in a race that used actual finish order- or when you could see them the entire race and passed them near

the finish. Of course this is the reason that the USATF does not recognize chip time for records. But the better race finish services list both chip and gun (actual) race time on their results if chip timing was used, and you can look at the times for those who finished near you. I'm glad to say that if the race was posted on the Running Journal site - you can click on results tab, and fill in the 'to and from' date section to choose which months and years to search for your race. Unfortunately not all races get posted but most South Carolina races do. When you find your race (on whatever site), you can copy the file into a Word document and save it. I like to convert the races I find into PDF files and save them in a folder by year. Then you can open that file later on and use the PDF search box by just typing your name and going straight to it. That's helpful if you can't remember your time or place in a race. Think that won't happen to you? If you race a lot, you might be surprised. I've run just under 800 races and can rarely remember exactly where I finished. Sometimes you want to know, and the more races you have run, the more scattered the results can be, so it pays to get them while you can. Here's my recommendation. Make a fold-

13.1 miles – Coastal 5K – Doggie Dash


er in your computer and name it My Races. Then search for every race you run and get a copy of the complete results. Put it in your folder. Someday you will be glad you did. You can look at them later as your running changes (for better or for worse) and see who your competition was and who it will be. It can be fun to do. Okay we've covered the very thin basics. Here is an offer for anyone who is interested. I've also created a South Carolina Races Database. If you have run races in South Carolina and want a copy of the race results I may have them. As of today as I write this article, I have results of 171 races from 2018, and race results dating back to 1976, (only 2 for that year - the Governor's Cup 15m/5m and the South Eastern Invitational 25 mile relay). The largest year is 2015 with 619 races. I have the results for all 41 Cooper River Bridge Runs. So if you want a copy of any races you have run in South Carolina, just e-mail me with the year and name of the race. If I have it, I'll send you a PDF copy. Wish I had more, I only have 6,689 so far. My goal is to get all the races ever held in South Carolina but the old paper results (if they ever existed) are getting harder to find. Let me hear from you and I hope you end up running more races than I have. Running and racing are fun. Enjoy. Cedric Jaggers was elected to the South Carolina Road Runners Hall of Fame in 1992.

Inspired Daily Summer Training Can Be Beneficial It's not just for high school runners! Last month I wrote about the art and science of coaching. This month, I encourage you to look at summer training. Many recreational runners and yearround racers train the same way all year long and run the same races year after year. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that, but if you are looking to have a break-out performance like setting a new PR, winning an award, or tackling a new distance, then you may need to restructure your training plan a bit so you peak for your goal race. For my high school cross country teams to peak at the end of the season, which is late October or early November, they must start summer training in late May or early June. They require a 10-week base to develop aerobic capacity, build endurance, and strengthen ligaments and tendons. It is lots of easy running plus

strength training that builds the foundation upon which their whole cross country season depends. It is easy to tell who ran over summer and who did not once our season starts in August! Races begin in late August and continue through late October when we start tapering and then peaking for our goal races. Runners of all ages can benefit from similar structure in their training. The peak performance will be worth it. It may mean giving up some of the local races you run year after year (something I really struggle with) in order to keep the goal race or the big picture in mind. The more focused, structured, and perhaps tougher training will not only help you achieve your goal, but will be easier to handle if you give your body some down time like with summer training. I know some runners who take most of the summer off to focus on swimming and cycling. You don't have to go to that extreme, but definitely add in lots of cross training, strength training, flexibility training, and keep the running easy. Literally think of it as building the base of your pyramid with tons of aerobic capacity, endurance, and strength. This summer I am focusing on cycling, elliptical, rowing, strength training, and yoga. Granted I have a stress fracture that I am forced to rest right now, but I know I will come back stronger from this injury having worked on many of my weaknesses. Sometimes being forced to do it is the only way this old dog learns new tricks. After a couple of months of summer training, you will feel strong and fit and

have the confidence to start building up that pyramid, adding specific workouts like speed work, tempo runs, hill workouts, pace runs, long runs, etc. Your body and mind will have had a couple of months of recovery from your regular training and racing routine and be ready to tackle these tougher workouts. You continue to build on that strong foundation towards the top of your pyramid peaking for your goal race. I tell my high school cross country runners that summer training is the key to their success. It can be yours too! Rae Ann Darling Reed runs, coaches, and writes in Florida.

Running Psychology Get Your ZZZZ's Sleep has recently become a hot topic of discussion in the sport science literature and rightly so. Outside of sports, lack of adequate sleep is associated with decreased work productivity, increased accidents on the job and even automobile accidents. Some even estimate that a lack of sleep causes more automobile accidents than does the use of alcohol. Lack of adequate sleep in runners is certainly linked to decreased running performance, impaired recovery and even an increase in injury. So just how does inadequate sleep lead to problems for runners? During sleep is when the pituitary gland releases Human Growth Hormone, so inadequate sleep can actually lead to low levels of Human Growth Hormone. HGH aids in tissue regeneration and muscle recovery from exercise, so without adequate HGH, runners may experience extended recovery time, chronic muscle soreness and difficulty performing at a normal level of running exertion. The lowered levels of HGH, along with increased sympathetic nervous system

activity (Stress Hormoes), can lead to feelings of fatigue that often mimic being over trained. But it's not overtraining that causes the fatigue, it's under-recovery due in part to inadequate sleep. Another reason inadequate sleep can make runners feel bad physically is a possible increased inflammatory response. Lack of sleep is associated with higher than normal levels of cytokines which are involved with inflammation. Increased cytokines

mean increased muscle soreness and stiffness. Increased cytokines are also associated with a compromised immune response, which is one reason inadequate sleep increases the risk of infections. Certainly the risks of getting colds and other upper respiratory tract infections is increased with inadequate sleep. Along with an increased risk of illness comes an increased risk of injury with inadequate sleep. Much has been written recently about numerous movement screening procedures that are supposed to predict injury, however a better predictor of injury may actually be not getting enough sleep. Less than eight hours of sleep per night may actually almost double the chances of getting injured. Of course fatigue from not sleeping can increase the risk of injury, but also cognitive performance can suffer as well and that in turn can increase the chances of getting hurt. Lack of sleep can mean decreased alertness and slowed/improper decision making. That's why so many accidents are a result of inadequate sleep. So maybe that decreased alertness causes hanging toes on roots or rocks on a trail and falling or even running out in front of a car on the street. Information processing is slowed and things happen that normally wouldn't with enough sleep. Mental sharpness just isn't what it should be with sleep deprivation. Yes, life is hectic and stressful for many

Women’s Running Training Equals Breakdown And Recovery As the heat builds, and runners try to continue the training loads of May and June, I hear an interesting complaint from many women runners in the hot and humid south. If only I can get these workouts done, I will be ready for fall racing. If I can just tough it out in this heat, I will have an edge over those who do not have to train in this misery. I am woman watch me roar!! So they continue to torture themselves, drenched in sweat every day and miserable in their workouts. Losing valuable electrolytes, they seldom take the extra time to replace that which is lost. To both statements it can only be said: Take a break and remember that less is more. If you go over the edge, all is lost. You are either injured or hopelessly overtrained, or anemic or worse. Then you do not even get to do those fall target races. Remember that training has two components - breakdown and recovery. Doing nothing is doing something as it is 50% of the concept of training. Do you really realize that rest and recovery are as important to your running as training? But trying to get this into the brain of a competitive athlete, man or woman, with a strong training plan is not easy. Rest seems like a dirty word and something that is not to be a part of your training program. If you do not get more workouts and more miles that your competitors, how can you possibly run better and be fitter? Again I

repeat 50% of training should be recovery and as we become more age challenged (i.e. older), you may require more than 50%. And if you manage to get injured, returning to normal becomes a much longer process than when you were younger. From one perspective, remember training in our high heat and humidity is a real stress, just like going to 7,000 feet altitude, or training with a 10 pound weight belt attached to your body. Considerable quantities of blood intended for muscles for oxygen and fuel provision is now going to the skin for cooling. And sweat lost during training makes the blood decrease its volume, so you get a double whammy, as both the muscles and skin have less. Chronic dehydration is a real risk in prolonged warm weather. Added to the dehydration is the potential iron lost through sweat. True, the

iron concentration in sweat is not large, but over weeks of summer heat, total sweat volume is large. Thus anemia can creep up on runners, especially women, over time. As your body acclimates to decreasing iron, you may feel tired and slow. And of course you will blame the nasty heat and humidity. I remember one team member who kept getting slower and was tired all of the time. After months of this, she finally went to her physician, who was totally amazed she could run at all, as her body had gradually adapted to decreasing iron stores and she was quite anemic. If this had occurred overnight, she would have most likely been in the hospital. From another perspective, however, remember that improvement in fitness does not occur as a result of the breakdown of tissues that happens with the interval session, or the long run, or weight training work. Improvement in fitness comes from tissue restoration after the breakdown.This is the recovery period. Additional stored energy supplies in your muscles, increased muscle enzymes, and increased muscle tissue mass and/or quality, all will combine to produce what we see as improved performance capability. But this takes time - typically more time than occurs between daily breakdown sessions. This is why periodically a day of total rest is required. If recovery is not complete, improvement will not occur. One


runners. Finding time for training and rest can be a challenge. It's hard to say exactly how much sleep is needed for everyone, though it's probably somewhere from eight to nine hours a night. Some may say they do just fine on four, but the evidence says otherwise. With a hectic schedule it's important to maximize the time you do have for sleep. It's one thing to be in bed for seven hours, but what if you only actually sleep for four and spend the rest of the time awake worrying about some stressor? Strive for quality sleep time. One of the biggest culprits of poor sleep may be electronic devices that emit blue light. If you spend a lot of time in front of a phone, tablet or computer screen in the evening, the blue light may suppress the production of melatonin, thereby inhibiting sleep. It's probably better to read an actual book before bed. So have a dark, cool room with no noise and settle in for a good nights sleep. Sleep is not a waste of valuable time. Sleep is necessary for humans to function normally. Get more sleep and you will probably think more clearly, feel better and run better!

He may be reached via e-mail at woman I have coached for nearly three decades continues to run extremely well despite the normal aging process. She has never had a problem with taking a day off and her training has remained as consistent as have her performances. You must listen to your body and alternate hard and easy sessions and do fewer hard sessions as you age. Think of starting a big race for which you have peaked. Because you tapered, you now feel physically so fresh and mentally so hungry. Somehow athletes have the notion that such recovery does not belong in a training phase. Days off are to be avoided and two a days are like money in the bank. If you have no pain, there is no gain. You have to be tough and not miss a day of hard efforts. Well, I am here to tell you that if you are ever feeling a bit on the tired side, pretend that I am your coach and that you asked me if I would recommend a day or two off. I would accept responsibility for any loss in fitness that might happen if you skip a day or perhaps even two. I will gladly make that recommendation because I can almost guarantee that tomorrow, having taken that time off, you will have an awesome training session because you will be fresh. Furthermore unknown to both of us, what might be tomorrow's injury just may have sufficient repair that it never becomes an injury or even an issue. Isn't that what training is all about? You are doing quality stuff, emerging unscathed, getting more fit and loving it. Less is indeed more!

Providing Age-Graded Awards By Haskell Murray As we age, most of us slow down. To keep older runners in the mix for awards, many races have added a masters category for 40+ year-old runners. Some races have added a grandmasters category for 50+ year-old runners. Races also tend to give a plethora of age-group awards. I propose that race directors consider moving away from these categories—which favor those in the early years of the grouping and disfavor those in competitive age groups—and instead provide agegraded awards. For those who are unaware, age-graded calculators, such as the free online Runner’s World calculator, provide a percentage-based grade, using your time and the world record time at your age and gender. For example, according to the Runner’s World calculator a 3:00 marathon by a 25-year old male is approximately equivalent to a 4:00 marathon by a 69-year old male or a 3:30 marathon by a 44 year-old female (68-69%). Switching to age-graded awards could have the following benefits: Broaden competition. In many local road races, some age groups do not have even three participants. In those races, you podium just by finishing. Age-graded awards would include runners in these typically weak age-groups in the main competition, on a level playing field. Improve fairness. Age-graded awards more equitably distribute prizes than age-group awards. With the typical age group awards, a 31-year old who runs a 19:00 5K could place higher in his age group than a 41-year old who runs an 18:30. With the proposed age-graded awards, the 41-year old would always, properly, finish much higher than the 31-year old. Encourage full effort. At too many local races you know the usual suspects in your age group and you are tempted to coast if you are ahead of them. With age-graded awards, full effort would be encouraged because you would not know, until after the race, if someone was running a better age/gender adjusted pace. Lessen need for so many awards. Even small, local races often give age-group awards threedeep, in 15 or so different age categories, for both men and women. Costs for these ~90 awards must add up, but races do this to engage runners at ever age group. Age-graded awards would still give runners of every age a reasonable shot to win, but could do so with a much smaller number of awards. Provide opportunity for better awards. With fewer awards, perhaps race directors could afford better, more useful awards. For example, maybe include a small gift card to a local running store. Here is the way age/gender graded adjustments would have changed the top performances from major 5Ks in my hometown of Nashville last year (2017). Races include the East Nashville Tomato 5K, Franklin Classic 5K, GraceWorks Turkey Trot 5K, Mid-TN Shootout 5K, Oktoberfest Bier Run 5K, Purity Dairy Dash 5K, and Tom King Classic 5K.

17 Selected To Attend RRCA’s 2018 RunPro Camp RunPro Camp provides valuable information to post-collegiate runners seeking to pursue a professional running career Arlington, Virginia – Seventeen up-andcoming distance runners, who have recently graduated from colleges and universities throughout the country, have been selected to attend the 7th RunPro Camp. The 2018 camp, hosted by the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), will be held in Arlington, Virginia, July 19-21. “We are excited to host the 7th RunPro Camp in our continuing efforts to keep talented distance runners in our sport,” said Jean Knaack, RRCA executive director. “We’ve seen great success in recent years from athletes that have attended RunPro Camp in the past six years. This year, with our biggest attendance yet, we have another great group of rising stars that we hope will have success on the roads and track as professional distance runners.”

In the adjusted results, 60% of the top-5 and 30% of the top-10 were female, and the age of the runners ranged from 21 to 60. Two, hopefully minor, implementation hurdles exist. First, race directors would have to convince timing companies to include age-graded percentages in their results. Adding the age-graded calculation to the results does not seem like it would be very difficult, but it would require some programming updates. If the programing fix is too difficult, race directors could give head starts to runners based on age and gender like the famous Dipsea Trail Race does. Second, age-graded awards would increase the temptation for runners to lie about their ages. However, given how small most road race awards are, and the fact that most results (with ages) would be posted online for all to see and check, I don’t see age falsification being a widespread problem. If you like the idea of age-graded awards, ask some of your local race directors and timing companies to consider it. Age-graded awards could create a more inclusive and competitive race experience for all runners.

Walk, Wag, And Run To End Domestic Violence ATLANTA — Ahimsa House, Georgia’s only nonprofit to help human and animal victims of domestic violence, will host its annual Walk, Wag & Run 5K and fun run on Saturday, Aug. 25. Since 2004, Ahimsa House has provided more than 81,000 nights of emergency safe shelter for animals in abusive situations. This allows domestic violence victims the chance to look for safe housing, and 87% of clients have been reunited with their pets. One such client, Janine, reached out to Ahimsa House one evening in panic after her German Shepherd, Star, jumped on Janine’s abusive boyfriend to stop him from strangling her. She desperately needed to enter her local domestic violence shelter but it did not accept animals. Star entered the Ahimsa House program and stayed in a foster home while Janine was able to recover. The two were reunited less than two months later. “Without our help, I shudder to think what might have happened to Janine if she had to

return to her abuser,” said Myra Rasnick, executive director, “but thankfully we were able to reunite her with her dog, who has now started a violence-free life with her.” Sadly, demand for their services is increasing. In 2017, Ahimsa House answered 3,340 calls to their 24-hour crisis line and assisted 161 people and 283 pets in escaping domestic violence. During the first four months of 2018, Ahimsa House provided 3,354 nights of safe shelter for 106 animals. The Walk, Wag & Run allows Atlanta residents to show their concern and support for domestic violence victims across the state. Funds raised support a 24-hour crisis hotline, emergency shelter, veterinary care, and legal advocacy. The 5K race is a Peachtree race qualifier and runs through Lenox Park in Brookhaven. Dogs are welcome. For more race details and to register, visit:

RRCA Mental Health Guide To Assist At-Risk Runners Two Runners who participated in RRCA programs later took their own lives In 2013, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) acquired both the website and its companion program RunPro Camp. Since taking over this important program designed to assist post-collegiate runners seeking to make the transition to professional running, the RRCA has sponsored sixty athletes to attend RunPro Camp, and further provided twelve of those athletes with a Roads Scholar grant of $5,000 as of 2017. “Within a span of ten months from 2017 to 2018, we were heartbroken to hear the news that two former RunPro Campers and Roads Scholar grantees had taken their own lives,” explained Jean Knaack, RRCA executive director. “As an organization supporting emerging elites, it can be a challenge to find the best course of action to assist athletes struggling with mental health challenges. We hope our new Mental Health Guide for Athletes and Their Support Network can help at least one athlete in need of a resource to find mental health support.” The guide was prepared for the RRCA by Rachel Tambling, PhD, LMFT. Tambling, a long-time volunteer with the RRCA, has a background that goes well beyond running and being an RRCA Certified Coach. Professionally, she is an associate professor at the University of Connecticut in the Human Development and Family Studies department. Her research and area of specialty focuses on client engagement and the improvement of therapy outcomes. For the 2019, RunPro Camp education program, Dr. Tambling will be presenting on the topic

of Taking Care of One’s Mental Health, a first-time topic presented at RunPro Camp. This education session will be coupled with a discussion about continuing one’s education while running pro with an eye towards life down the road, post running career. The goal of the RunPro Camp is to encourage, support and provide the tools for more top collegiate runners to stay in the sport, pursue a professional running career so that U.S. performances will continue to improve nationally and internationally. The RRCA encourages coaches, athletes, agents, friends, family, and loved ones to share this resource with someone they think could benefit from the information. The guide can be found on both and on If you or someone you know is experiencing thoughts of suicide, act immediately. If there is imminent risk, call 911. For transient thoughts, or for someone to talk to, call the national suicide hotline at 1-800-273-TALK or 1-800-SUICIDE. In many areas, dialing 211 will connect you to mental health resources and emergency psychiatric services. About the RRCA: The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) is the oldest and largest national association of running organizations and runners dedicated to growing the sport since 1958. The RRCA champions the development of communitybased running clubs and events that serve runners of all ages and abilities in pursuit of health and competition. The RRCA’s vision is to see an organized running club established in every community in the U.S. To learn more, visit:

We Were Running Then But Staggering Today? By Wayne Bennett Arkansas Running Klub North Little Rock, AR

This article was first published in the June issue of Ark Rundown. In the early 1980's a club was born. One morning I found myself at lake number three running with a group of the charter members of the Arkansas Running Klub. We were running as a very close group because a very serious question had been posed. What are we doing? What is the correct definition of what we are doing? The discussion went on as we cooled down from our six mile run. When we finally started home we had come to the conclusion that we were running. It was decided that an 8 minute mile pace would be running, but if it were over 8 minute miles that would be considered jogging. We didn't get a copyright for coming up with those terms even though we did have a lawyer or two in the group. Recently several of us in my age group were talking about this very thing. None of us remember who coined this word. We don't run and we don't jog! We hurry!! I have tried to identify who gets credit for the new term but I can't find anyone that remembers the conversation or who was present. My family recently put this descriptive term to good use in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon, as a 5-member relay race team. The

collective age of our team was 279 years. My daughter had done the relay before with a group of school teachers, so she knew the way it would work. We completed the 26.2 miles in 5 hours & 6 minutes, an average of about 11.5 minute miles. The night before the race, we checked into a new hotel close to the start line. They would have a shuttle running each hour on race day, and you had to get on the list to get a seat. First two for race day were full, the third would arrive just before the gun fired. It only had two seats left. Daughter Shuree lead off with a 10k and then wife Minnie Raye would do 5k, so they got those seats. Granddaughter Reagan did a 7.6 mile segment handing off to her dad, and my son Rodney, who would do a 5k before handing off to me at the 20 mile mark. I managed to keep from walking the whole way and passed many runners who were doing the complete mara-thon. I hurried the whole way and was accused of staggering after the finish. When my house was being built, one of the guys on the brick laying crew was 90 years old. One morning when I greeted him with, “How are you doing?" he said, "Oh, I'm staggering pretty good today.” Is that what we have evolved into, staggering? Sounds catchy to me. I'm sure my age group will concur. If anyone dissents, no one will remember who it was. So as we stagger on toward different degrees of ineptitude, please run if you can. If you can't run or jog, hurry. The stagger will come soon enough.


Andrew Colley Wins Lawyers Have Heart 10K WASHINGTON, DC — The Saturday, June 9th Lawyers Have Heart 10K, 5K and Fun Walk to benefit the American Heart Association boasted a diverse running field made up of top elite athletes, as well as participants from all walks of life. Race morning conditions allowed for a fast pace on the route that began and ended at the Washington Harbour in Georgetown. Andrew Colley of Blowing Rock, North Carolina came out on top at the American Heart Association's Lawyers Have Heart 10K with a time of 28:44. Colley is one of the most decorated athletes in North Carolina State University's history. Etagegn Woldu Mamo of Ethiopia won the women’s elite division 10K with a record time of 33:12. Mamo competes in middle and long distance races and won Gold at the Junior Africa Championship in Athletics for the 5000m in 2015. The 10K elite division had their sights set on the existing event records, with 6 runners beating the previous records – for the men, 29:51 and for the women, 34:32. This year’s USATF Certified 10K race also featured a new elite division with an international field made up of over 85 men and women. Athletes from Chad, Ethiopia and Kenya, along with incredible talent from the United States, took to the course to break records and win a share of the $20,000 in prize money. The 2018 winners are: Top Male 10K Elite Division: Andrew Colley, Bowling Rock, NC, 28:45 Top Female 10K Elite Division: Etagegn Woldu Mamo, Ethiopia, 33:13 Top Male Open Division: Matt Deters, Arlington, VA, 33:03 Top Female Open Division: Beth Conlon, Montgomery Village, MD, 38:08 Top Male Masters Division: Mengistu Tabor Nesbi, Washington D.C., 32:05 Top Female Masters Division: Jennifer Maranzano, Washington D.C., 36:37 Top Male 5K: Gavin McElhennon, Washington D.C., 16:35 Top Female 5K: Katie Schettig Raut, Arlington, VA, 18:47 Top Male Masters 5K: John Nakahata, Alexandria, VA, 18:16

Top Female Masters 5K: Joy Harrington, Arlington, VA, 21:21 “The competition this morning was incredible to watch unfold,” said Emily Wang Murphy, 2018 LHH Co-Chair and Partner at Thompson Coburn LLP. “We had our biggest field yet with over 6,000 runners and walkers crossing the finish line. A huge thank you to all the participants and over 100 corporate sponsors from the legal community who, this year, helped us raise over $1M in support of the American Heart Association.” Runners had their sights set on the existing event records in each division. “Often called the premiere athletic philanthropic event, specifically led by the greater DC legal community, we hope this race continues to grow as a destination for runners and walkers from all around the world,” said 2018 LHH Co-Chair Eric D. Reicin, VP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of MorganFranklin Consulting, LLC. "Lawyers Have Heart enables employees and friends to give back to the community while improving their personal health and building positive relationships. I am already looking forward to next year's race!" Since 1991, Lawyers Have Heart has raised over $13 million for AHA and is one of the largest 10K races in the Washington D.C. area each year. Race day events included the 10K Race, 5K Run and Fun Walk, as well as a Post-Race Party with an award ceremony, live music by Soul Stew, a kids zone that featured a face painter and snow cones and a beer garden.

Be A Genius, Run In The 41st Running Journal Grand Prix You don’t have to be a genius to know running is great and represents a lot of energy. The genius Albert Einstein produced an equation about energy: E=mc2 (Energy equals mass and the speed of light multiplied by itself.) Einstein, a theoretical physicist, never ran in our Grand Prix series, which started 40 years ago, but running sure helps anyone understand the reality of pure energy. You’ll be light years ahead on understanding energy when you participate in Running Journal Grand Prix races. You can even reflect on Einstein’s theory while you experience the energy needed to get to the finish line. And imagine how many miles you might run if you were on a space ship going at the speed of light (186,000 mph). Let’s have our own equation:

E=gp41 (The energy you will expend in the 41st year of the Running Journal Grand Prix). Our equation may not meet theoretical physicist standards but you will get to the finish line before that spaceship reaches its galactic destination. Race directors interested in including the Grand Prix 41 race series with their race can contact RJ@Running.Net to learn details on how to receive extensive ongoing promotion of their event. Grand Prix races are promoted at Running.Net, in Running Journal print and digital editions, and twice monthly in our Racing South eNewsletter. The new series begins with the annual Midnight Flight 5K, 10K, and fun run the evening of Friday, Aug. 24, in Anderson, SC, and continues into mid-2019.
