Vol. 21 >> No. 2 >> The bike issue

www.sweatmagazine.com

I want to ride my bicycle.

F

ront and back tires rested on their respective rims due to a lack of air. My bike patiently awaited my attention. It had been easily five months since I had put the rubber to the road. I can’t use weather as an excuse living in the Valley of the Sun. Work, a new second business, a move, family matters and more. Life just happens and it seems time to ride disappears. When co-founder Angela French and I started SWEAT Magazine back in 1991, I was racing and rode an average of 250 miles a week February through November for many years. My time to ride vanished like air in a tire when you puncture a tube. In 1984 my casual rides down the greenbelt on my Lady Schwinn turned into serious cycling when I got my first touring bike, a Nishiki International. A maroon colored steel beauty with toe clips, down tube shifting and a big red handlebar bag. It was a tank but the bomb, and ridden by many in the Ironman back then. Who knew any better? It did not matter; I just loved to ride, whenever and wherever. Most of my Arizona siteseeing has been from the seat of one bicycle or another. My first tour, just four weeks after getting the maroon tank took me to Alpine and Spingerville in Eastern Arizona and Luna Lake, New Mexico. I may have had a death grip on the handlebars descending one hill at 50 mph, but I was hooked. I did several round trips with friends to Tucson riding the back way through Oracle in one day then participating in an organized two-day ride for the return trip. The last tour on the Nishiki took me through a two week tour of Northern California and down Highway 1. The first week, a group of four of us, including a French chef, rode out of Sausalito and covered a lot of territory. I can still remember the epic ride to Calistoga on the back roads and some gnarly climbs in the wine country. The second week twelve more joined us from our local bike group. We rode down the coast, camping and cooking all the way to LA. I don’t remember what our friend the chef made, but do remember the entourage of others that joined us. Oh, what fun! Once I started racing, most weekends you‘d find me amongst men wearing Lycra in some small Arizona town. My first time to the old mining town of Jerome was on a bicycle during a time trial to the top of Mingus Mountain at 7000 feet. I thought that was fun. I still do today, just would prefer it at a more leisurely pace than the lung searing inaugural visit. If only I had the time. The words from a song by Queen is repeating in my mind. Bicycle bicycle bicycle I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle I want to ride my bicycle So I pumped up my tires, donned some Lycra, grabbed my helmet and went to ride my bicycle. See you on the road.

Leadville Lottery Leads to Qualifiers Overwhelming demand for the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Trail race has many fans saying getting a slot is more difficult than the actual race. One of the original endurance mountain bike events, it also considered one of the toughest. The race is run on a 50-mile out and back course, starting and finishing in downtown Leadville, Colo., at 10,200 ft. elevation. Major climbs include 3000+ feet from miles 40-50 to the Columbine mine, Powerline at mile 80, and St Kevins at mile 86. Total elevation gain is roughly 14,000 feet. The lottery costs $15 and opened November 1 and remained open until January 31, 2012. Winners were chosen and notified by Mid-February. In the past, the race limit has been 1400. So winning a slot is like hitting the jackpot and based on luck. So Lifetime

Uphill Into the Wind Puts Bodies on Bikes at TDC You would love to do a charity ride but you have no wheels. Uphill Into the Wind offers loaner bicycles to individuals registered in a qualified 501(c)3 charity ride who cannot afford to purchase a bicycle of their own. The loaner bicycles are issued to an individual in need at the start of training through the completion of the assigned event. After the finish line photos the bicycle is to be returned to the foundation for loan to another. On March 24 in Phoenix, seven Tour de Cure participants will complete the event on Uphill Into the Wind bicycles. In addition, volunteers and friends of Uphill Into the Wind will participate as a team to support the American Diabetes Association’s movement to stop diabetes. Uphill Into the Wind foundation, was founded in honor of Bob Griffiths’ memory. Griffiths was a fun loving, active man who participated in charitable cycling events despite his struggle with lung disease. Uphill into the wind is how he felt whenever he

rode, even if the road was flat and the wind calm. Although his breathing became labored throughout training, he pressed on. His focus was to challenge himself because he could. He knew that as he was fighting through training, those he was riding for were fighting for their lives. His spirit inspired many to join the cause and give patients a fighting chance. Newton’s first law of physics states “a body at rest will remain at rest until acted upon by an outside force.” Uphill Into The Wind strives to be that outside force by putting bodies on bikes (BOB) and setting them in motion. Take the challenge and join an event to help raise money for a worthy cause. You can enjoy the sport of cycling now and for many years to come. Learn more about uphillintothewind.org.

Revolution to the Training Room As one door closes, another opens. We have all heard that phrase, or similar, a million times. Revolution, a successful spin studio at 7th St. and Glendale, Phoenix, made a heartfelt decision to close the business. Fortunately for the clients and instructors, The Training Room Phoenix, at 16th St. and Glendale, will be adding group bike classes on Revolution’s LeMond stationary bikes to their menu of services. Celebrating, their first anniversary in March, they currently offer personal training, private memberships, premium private memberships and yoga. The style of training they typically propose to the client is very intense and progressive. It is a client specific model that includes a mixture of traditional strength training with an emphasis on plyometrics, flexibility, core strength and conditioning, resistance training, speed and agility. The Training Room founder, Mike Ages, learned well from Coach Lou Holtz, one of the most influential college coaches in U.S. history. As a starting Wide Receiver for the University of South Carolina, Ages learned a simple logic that made the most challenging feats simple. To learn more about The Training Room Phoenix located at 7000 North 16th Street, Suite 158 Phoenix, stop by, call 602-944-4677 or visit trainingroomphx.com.

A Cave Not Just for Men

Meyerhoff Tribute

In November 1974 two young cavers, Gary Tenen and Randy Tufts, were exploring the limestone hills at the base of the Whetstone Mountains in Southern Arizona. In the bottom of a sinkhole they found a narrow crack leading into the hillside. Warm, moist air flowed out, signaling the existence of a cave. After several hours of crawling, they entered a pristine cavern. Thanks to Arizona State Parks, the cave that Tenen and Tufts found is Kartchner Caverns is accessible to the public. For those unfamiliar with caving lingo, the formations that decorate caves are called “speleothems.” Usually formations are composed of layers of calcite called travertine deposited by water. The form a speleothem takes is determined by whether the water drips, flows, seeps, condenses, or pools. If you have not been to Kartchner Caverns here are some reasons to check it out:

The Competitor Group, race organizers of the Rock N Roll Race Series and PF Chang’s Rock N Roll AZ Marathon paid tribute to Sally Meyerhoff, winner of the 2011 Arizona event, who was killed in a cycling accident in March of that year. Tribute activities took place throughout race weekend. Black ribbons were distributed to runners and 26% of proceeds from food and drinks at the Running

One of the world’s longest soda straw stalactites: 21 feet 3 inches (Throne Room) The tallest and most massive column in Arizona, Kubla Khan: 58 feet tall (Throne Room) The world’s most extensive formation of brushite moonmilk (Big Room) The first reported occurrence of “turnip” shields (Big Room) The first cave occurrence of “birdsnest” needle quartz formations Many other unusual formations such as shields, totems, helictites, and rimstone dams. Take a break from your normal workout routine and visit Kartchner Caverns to see the fragile and still growing cave formations. To make cave tour reservations and book tickets visit azstateparks.com or call 520-586-2283. You can call 7 days a week, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Legends Happy Hour were donated to the Sally Meyerhoff Foundation. Elite runners all wore the same bib with the number 001 printed in fushia, the color of compression socks Meyerhoff frequently donned. The winner of the women’s full marathon will receive the Sally Meyerhoff Memorial Trophy each year. A similar trophy with the name of the winner and subsequent winners will hang in the home of Meyerhoff’s mother Cindy.

Gluten Free These days, going gluten free seems to be a popular dietary choice regardless of a sensitivity to gluten. For those individuals with Celiac Disease, they don’t have a choice. Celiac Disease (CD) is an autoimmune condition where the body creates antibodies in reaction to the ingestion of gluten (found in foods with derivatives of wheat, barley, rye and possibly oats) in genetically susceptible individuals. For those with the condition, the ingestion of gluten results in damage to the villi. Over time this can cause malnutrition, anemia, osteoporosis, and a number of other serious maladies. Symptoms include gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, iron deficiency, or chronic fatigue. If you have undiagnosed intestinal issues CD may be the cause. According to University of Maryland Celiac Disease Center research, 1 in 133 Americans may have Celiac Disease and may not be aware of it. Fortunately

the Celiac patient can live a long and healthy life even though, as a genetic disorder, there is no cure. The solution is early detection and strict compliance to a gluten-free diet, which will eventually result in healed villi and relief from symptoms. On April 21, the CD Foundation, Greater Phoenix Chapter is holding another Phoenix Gluten-Free Expo. The purpose is to present learning opportunities about the disease, as well as available gluten-free goods, services and literature. The 2011 Expo attracted 1200 guests with participation of over 50 vendors. The 2012 event is expected to draw more participants and vendors. Items and information will be on display and also available for purchase. All products and/or services must, in some way, be related to the gluten-free lifestyle. The Expo will, again, include a raffle and silent auction. The event is being held from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Paradise Valley, Scottsdale. For more info visit phoenixceliac.org.

Professional Sunscreen Solution

Protein that Pops

Jerky is easy to pack in your pocket and an ideal source of protein energy -- except for the nitrates, MSG and other harmful crap usually found in each serving. Perky Jerky takes out all that crud and delivers tender strips of turkey or beef with an interesting punch. The jerky is infused with guarana, which is a tropical fruit from Brazil that is often found in energy beverages, supplements and functional foods. It has the energizing effect of caffeine but more subtle, without the jitters. Warning, the stuff is addictive. SWEAT staff and friends inhaled 2.2-ounce bags, even with the tang of cracked pepper that hangs in there. You can find the snack at Target, GNC, Home Deport, 7-11 and even Fed Exp Kinko’s. And, you can feel good about pigging out on the tasty strips, for every bag sold at $4.99, the company donates to Muscular Dystrophy and Downs Syndrome research. Info: www. perkyjerky.com.

Arizona’s intense sunshine and your intense outdoor endeavors leave most sunscreen products dripping away in minutes while you fry like a flounder. Coppertone has a new Sport Pro Series that meets an athlete’s extreme needs. Designed for conditions that trigger sweating, Coppertone’s new formulas spray on lightweight, but stay on strong. Available in SPF 15, 30 and 50+, these sunscreens offer broad spectrum protection against UVA and UVB rays and are water resistant for at least 80 minutes. SWEAT tested the 30 SPF and found it covered well, left the skin feeling hydrated, not tight, and didn’t migrate into the eyes. Also, it didn’t seem to clog pores causing those winning postrace zits. The 6-ounce spray goes a long way for $10.99 at grocery, drug and sporting goods stores. Info: www.coppertone.com.

Cha Cha Cha Chia Energy

Turns out those seeds that sprout into green bushy pet plants in the shape of bunnies or Elvis are bursting with energy and immune boosting properties. Mamma Chia organic chia seed beverage snagged the 2011 “Best NonCarbonated Beverage Award at the annual BevNET Live Winter Conference. The beverages have the feel of drinking tiny tapioca beads thatt dissolve instantly on the tongue. With a tablespoon of agave nectar as a sweetener, a 10-ounce bottle has 120 calories with 4 grams of protein, 20 grams of carbs, 6 grams of fiber, 95mg calcium and 2500mg of Omega-3. Flavors include raspberry, blackberry hibiscus, pomegranate mint, cranberry lemonade and cherry lime. The coconut mango was my refreshing favorite. The company also “seeds” the earth by donating 1 percent of its sales to farmers, community groups and organizations building healthy, local food systems. Info: www.MammaChia.com.

Stylish Sun Protection

You always want to wear sunscreen in Arizona, but sometimes you don’t want to use a lotion or a stick product, especially on your face. Brush On Block is a dry, brush-on mineral-based powder sunscreen with SPF 30, offering UVA and UVB protection without harmful chemicals. FDA-approved and recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, the refillable sunscreen brush and container is sweat-proof, water-resistant and didn’t sting eyes when we gave it a try. Brush On Block contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide for broad-spectrum protection plus green tea leaf extract, a natural antioxidant, and soothing, replenishing flower oils and extracts from safflower, chamomile, and honeysuckle.  It blocks the rays so you don’t absorb the product, which helps keep it from clogging pores. For those of us who are cosmetically challenged, it took a few minutes to figure out how to pop up the brush and get the powder moving down for an application. It is sheer but did offer some cover up, which is a bonus, but you can put it right over make up. Buy it for $25 (includes shipping) at www.brushonblock.com. S

Love those Intervals Whether you are a cyclist or triathlete, getting the appropriate mixture of intensity is the key to making improvements. By Ryan Riell

14 SWEAT magazine

THE BIKE ISSUE 2012

www.sweatmagazine.com


iz, 55, simply wanted to complete her first Ironman in Florida. Liz started doing triathlons five years prior to her Ironman. She participated in mostly sprint and Olympic distance events. She had one half Ironman race under her belt before we started working together. Kristi Johnson, 30, wanted to earn her professional racing license. A former ASU cross country runner, she had been following the standard high volume, build an aerobic base model highly promoted by many coaches.(see Periodization, Parts 1 & 2, SWEAT Fall 2011). Both women achieved their goals in their respective “A” races though differed dramatically in age, ability, experience and desired goals. Understanding the different energy systems available to each athlete and what physiological adaptations are apt to occur when you stress each is key. The objective was to stress the appropriate systems to maximize their training time. We conducted some standard cycling testing: a simple 30-minute all-out time trial for Liz and a 20-minute all-out time trial for Kristi, on relatively flat ground minimizing potential stops and turns. Liz used a her heart rate monitor while Kristi used both a heart rate monitor and power meter. For Liz, we calculated her average heart rate for the last 20 minutes of the 30 to get her lactate threshold heart rate (LTHR). For Kristi, we took the average power output over the full 20 minute test and multiplied it by 0.95 to determine her Functional Threshold Power (FTP), which is the power output Kristi was able to maintain, at lactate threshold. After looking at the numbers for each athlete, it was clear that Liz had a relatively low LTHR and VO2max when compared to some other cycling tests she conducted. With that information in hand, the traditional models of coaching dictated the proper cycling workouts for Liz would be primarily in Zones 2 and 3, with the goal of increasing her aerobic capacity, lactate threshold and economy of motion. The simplest way to do this was to increase her volume as we went, mainly by 10% each week, per workout, though that is not what we did. Kristi had a power-to-weight ratio (watts at FTP divided by body weight in kilograms) of close to 4.3, a very solid starting point. The key to putting Kristi in the best position to become a professional triathlete was to increase Kristi’s high-end performance variables such as maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max), lactate threshold (power-to-weight ratio), critical power, economy of motion and oxidative enzyme activity was the best shot to achieve her goals. . Applying the high volume training principles to Kristi, would not have

been productive. Kristi was already in a trained state. Increasing volume would not have increased her endurance performance and the performance variable listed above. Instead, we utilized a high quantity of highintensity interval training (HIIT) in order to elicit those physiological adaptations. High-intensity interval training is broadly defined as short to moderate intervals (15 seconds to 5 minutes) at an intensity greater than anaerobic threshold (lactate threshold), which correlates to the standard “Zone 5” intensity. The second, and just as important part of HIIT sessions is recovery, characterized as low intensity movement (spinning) to allow for partial, but not full

To verify the increase in aerobic capacity, we continually conducted a simple fixedintensity, fixed time test. For Liz, she was asked to ride at “race pace,” in Z2 for 1 hour, without looking at her heart rate monitor. For Kristi, I put her on a CompuTrainer, with a fixed wattage (power output or load) and had her ride for 1 hour with a cadence over 85 RPMs. For Liz, her average heart rate in the first test was 138 beats per minute (BPM) and was able to cover 14.7 miles in that one-hour test. In the last test we conducted before IMFL, she had an average heart rate of 144 (2% increase) and was able to cover 18.3 miles (24% increase) in the same one-hour test.

The bottom line goal: repeatedly stress the correct physiological systems that an athlete uses during his or her event to a greater extent than required during the event. recovery between intervals. The bottom line goal: repeatedly stress the correct physiological systems that an athlete uses during his or her event to a greater extent than required during the event. HIIT sessions have been shown to increase a relatively untrained athlete’s VO2max by as much as 44%, a major improvement in “aerobic fitness.” An increase in fat oxidation (fat usage), stroke volume (the amount of blood your heart pushes with each beat), lactate threshold and oxidative capacity have been shown to take place with HIIT sessions, all of which are incredibly beneficial to endurance athletes. With Liz, we did NOT take the usual route of increasing volume and calling it a day. I had Liz not only working in Zone 2 and 3, but added in HIIT sessions 1-2 times per week. Her HIIT sessions started off as 8x30 seconds at maximal effort with a 30 second recovery, that was all blended into a 1-hour ride. By the end of her training for IMFL, she was up to 10x2 minutes at maximal effort with only a 1-minute recovery. We took a more aggressive approach with Kristi, starting with 10x1 minute at 120% of her FTP with a 1-minute recovery. At the end of her preparation for the Nickel City Triathlon (pro-card qualifier), she was easily finishing 8x4 minutes at 120% of FTP with a 90 second recovery.

athletes

Kristi’s, average heart rate started at 134 BPM, while covering 22.1 miles and finished at 135 BPM while covering 25.3 miles (14% increase). The more interesting observation with Kristi: her power-toweight ratio had increased from 4.3 to 5.1, a massive increase in aerobic (subanaerobic threshold) capacity! At their respective “A” races, both Liz and Kristi achieved their goals with relative ease. Liz finished in under 14 hours, with a bike split 1 hour 39 minutes faster than she “really hoped” for when we first started working together. Kristi earned her professional triathlete license in Buffalo, with the fastest bike split among the women who earned their professional license at the race. Regardless of your age, ability, experience and goals, you now have the ability to develop the training program that will provide you the most success on the bike!

Metric Century Rides, Centuries and Beyond We lead busy lives these days. Between work, family, work outs and life in general, we tend to rely on the old and familiar. We run the same stretch of canal, eat at the same restaurants and order the same items. It is time to get off your arrow bars, lift your head up, look around and smell the roses. Maybe you don’t care to smell roses but perhaps you would like to freshen up your cycling routine. Organized rides always seem to pick me up. We have pulled together a list of great metric century and longer rides in Arizona and neighboring states to perk up your riding routine. You will typically find great sag support, traffic control and lots of camaraderie on most organized rides. Leave the route and rest stops to the organizers so you can enjoy your ride. —SUE BERLINER

12 Hours on Camelback and Grandpa Jim’s 50k By Sue Berliner

When hearing about 12 Hours on Camelback Mountain, most would ask why and believe there was no sane reason for it. While one man’s pain is another’s pleasure, there is usually a good reason why someone would want to undertake the painful task of climbing Camelback Mountain 12 times. Jim David Metzler and Sammy Fowler, known as Grandpa Jim, had his Wag breather at the 12 Hours man take a on Camelback. reasons for creating the endurance event Photo by Ken Snyder on Camelback. Fowler conceived the event as a fundraiser for Sunshine Acres Children’s Home. In 2006 while working at a construction site Fowler fell 12 feet and broke his back. In 2010 he wanted to celebrate his 51st birthday and take a group of kids from Sunshine Acres to the Grand Canyon. So he combined his passion for the landmark Phoenix rock formation and Sunshine Acres to create the first, though unofficial Camelback Marathon in February 2010. It is 1.2 miles and 1250 vertical feet to the top, so a pretty steep climb with a somewhat gnarly descent. To complete a marathon on the mountain means 11 round trips up and down for a total of 26.4 miles and 14,300 elevation gained and also lost. While you might understand the motivation, it is still a big ouch. The first official event in 2011 was dubbed 12 Hours on Camelback.

Xterra Trail Run Arizona Series McDowell Mountain By Dayton Morinaga

Nick Coury’s first XTERRA Trail Run experience was a victorious one at the XTERRA McDowell Mountain Trail Run on February 5, at Fountain Hills, Arizona. Coury, 24, completed the 15-mile long course in 1 hour, 32 minutes, 48 seconds. “Couldn’t have asked for better weather,” said Coury, who resides in Phoenix. “The course is fast, fun and just challenging enough.” More than 300 runners participated in race 3 of the 4 race XTERRA Arizona Trail Run Series. Coury and veteran XTERRA Trail Run participant Boone Ebel ran together at the front of the pack for most of the course. Coury said he broke away in the final three miles. “Rolling through the undulations in the landscape, we’d briefly separate then return to lockstep,” Coury said. “As we neared the junction to rejoin Pemberton, it became apparent Boone was a bit more fatigued than me. Up to Tonto and screaming back down, I could always see Boone but knew by the last mile that I had the win.” Ebel, who recently took some time off to recover from a hip injury, finished second with a time of 1:33:46. “We chatted for a while, and stayed close until mile 11, which is where Nick pulled away,” Ebel said. “He’s a better downhill runner than I, so the final four miles worked to his advantage and we finished a little less than a minute apart.” Coury helps organize other trail runs in Arizona, so he said he was familiar with the terrain. “It was a great experience to be on the other side of the table and actually compete in a trail race,” he added. “The course was well-designed and marked, the aid stations were numerous, and it’s always great to see old friends and meet new ones!” Charlie Ware placed third in 1:37:07, and Jason Ford was fourth in 1:40:03. The women’s winner of race 2, Marisa Asplund, placed 11th overall and was the first female with a time of 1:45:40. She is now two-for-two.

In the third edition held on February 10, fitness trainer Linda Scharinger won the event completing 12 laps in 11 hours 40 minutes. Steve Veneable followed her also completing 12 under 12 hours. Last years winner, David Metzler, and Lisa Kravetz each did 11 laps. A total of 165 trips were completed by 65 people doing at least 1 trip. The youngest hikers were Fowlers grandsons Christian 4 and Ethan Olsen 6. Once again, the oldest was Sammy Wagman, 76, doing 5 laps. As if a marathon on Camelback was not enough, a week later on February 18 Fowler was at it again putting on Grandpa Jim’s 50k. The 50K started on the Cholla side of Camelback going up and over and down the Echo side. Participants then ran to and through the Phoenix Mountain Preserve to Piestawa Peak. Then more Preserve hills and trails eventually finishing at North Mountain/Shaw Butte. He also held a 12.5K that was the final 8 miles of the 50K looping from the Visitors Center over North Mountain/Shaw Butte and back. The 12.5K winners were Michael Pierceall and Cassandra Merchant. The brutal 50k had 29 people start and 18 finishers. Camelback regulars Dave Metzler and Zane Grey Highline Trail 50 mile winner Andi Felton took the day. Metzler finished first with a time of 5 hours 53 minutes followed by Ultra runners Jay Danek and Jeremy Dougherty in at 6:32. Felton was 5th overall with a time of 6:41 in spite of reaching the 2nd aid station, realizing she hadn’t summited Piestewa then going back to the top before continuing. Jennifer Mathews, another Camelback regular, was the 2nd female with a time of 7:06. The 3 events raised over $5,000 to take the kids from Sunshine Acre’s Children’s Home to hike the Grand Canyon.

“Found myself at mile two with the second small pack of male runners, with no other women close by,” she said. “The pace was very fast, and the distance of the race kept reminding me to be very mindful of my effort level -- the last thing I wanted was to blow up at mile 10, so I decided to back off just a little and around mile three settled into what I felt was a swift but steady pace. The course terrain surprised me, as it was much more rolling than I had originally anticipated, so again I played my conservative card. The most challenging aspect of the race was the six mile down hill to the finish, although a bit of a reprieve on the lungs, every ounce of that reprieve and then some gets shoved back into pounding on the legs.” Kristina Pham was second among the females in 1:48:03, and Jeanne Cordova was third in 1:50:39. In the 7-kilometer race, Martin Koko was the first overall finisher with a time of 27:32, and Angie Axmann was the first female in 28:36. The final event is the XTERRA Black Canyon Trail Run, scheduled for March 25 at Rock Springs, Ariz. The XTERRA Black Canyon Trail Run will be the last opportunity for runners to earn points toward the overall standings in the series. At the conclusion of the series, the top runner in each respective age group will receive a free entry to represent Arizona at the 2012 XTERRA Trail Run National Championship in Utah in September.

Skirt Chaser 5k By Sue Berliner

The pre-Valentines chase has become a popular event among the running crowd. The ladies put on their favorite running skirts and headed to Tempe Beach Park on February 11. Men naturally show up. At 2 p.m. the 5k start gun went off for the women at the fifth edition of the Skirt Chaser 5k. Three minutes later the men came calling. The big question is not who will cross the finish line first but will it be a guy or a gal. Prize money is on the line for the first three runners that cross the line regardless of gender. Women swept the top four spots with just three men cracking the top ten. First to cross the line was Tempe resident Allie Kieffer. Kiefer is originally from Long Island, N.Y. She is a Wake Forest and Arizona State alumnus. During her collegiate running career she was part of multiple teams that made the national championships in cross country and individually qualified for outdoor regionals. She set her road 5k pr of 15:52 in 2011. Pro triathlete Lewis Elliot, 29 was the first male to cross the line in fifth place. In January , Elliot placed 8th overall at Rock N Roll Arizona Half marathon. As soon as the first runners crossed the line, the post-race party began. A raffle was held to raise funds for the Sally Meyerhoff Foundation. Meyerhoff, a 4 for 4 winner at the Skirt Chaser Sk Tempe, lost her life in a bike accident last March. The foundation was to carry on Meyerhoff’s legacy. The foundation helps other distance runners and

PF Chang’s Rock Arizona Marathon & Half Marathon A soft cloud cover and cool temperatures graced the 9th annual P.F. Chang’s Rock n Roll Arizona Marathon & Half Marathon to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. On January 15 more than 25,000 runners toured the neighboring cities of Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe. The race debuted two brand new courses, with new start lines and a more scenic route. In the men’s marathon, Peter Omae reached the final straightaway and took one last look over his shoulder. He knew he had to wait another 75 meters before he could start celebrating. Omae, a Kenyan living in Worcester, Mass., lifted his arms in triumph when he broke the tape in 2:24: :47, 11 seconds up on Chad Ware, 27, of Fort Huachuca, Ariz. A week earlier Omae, 33, finished second at the Mississippi Blues Marathon in 2:21:12. “When you cross [the finish line] is when you celebrate,” Omae, 33, said after the race. “You can’t celebrate with 50 meters to go. I was not expecting to win because I ran a marathon last week, so I was hoping just to get top three. I tried to push with the other guy to 24 miles and I knew that guy was very strong. At 24 miles I started to push fast.” A group of three, including Omae, Ware and Roosevelt Cook (2:33:17, 9th place) went through halfway in 1:14:01, with Jeremy Zarins, 39, of Tempe just a few seconds back. Omae and Ware eventually pulled away from Zarins by 24 miles and fought each other stride for stride nearly all the way to the finish line. “I was trying to go for the win today, said Ware, who has a 2:19:16 personal best. “I was hoping to run in the low-2:20’s. He was just a little bit stronger at the end.” In the women’s race, Trisha Miller, 31, of Missoula, Mont. Finished in 2:49:12 to earn her first marathon win. “I was shooting to go under 2:50, said Miller, whose previous personal best was 2:51. That’s a huge PR for me.” Tanya Gallagher, 25, of Phoenix was second in 2:51:24. In just her second marathon, Tere Derbez Zacher, 39, of Scottsdale placed third in 2:53:45. Miller held a 1:05 lead over Zacher at halfway, passing 13.1 miles in

triathletes pursue their dreams, and achieve their athletic goals so they can remain “Relentlessly Positive”. A great time was had by the crowd of more than 2000. Whether you are single or committed, put the Skirt Chaser 5k on your bucket list.

1:25:26, while Gallagher went through in 1:26:45. By 20 miles Miller had a 1:38 advantage over Gallagher and extended that lead over the final 10K with a negative split second half. “I had an inkling that maybe I’d get top five,” Miller said, but honestly a win was beyond anything that I could have ever imagined. I’m speechless. It was awesome.” In the men’s half-marathon, Dylan Wykes, a 28-year-old Canadian currently training in Flagstaff, Ariz., separated himself from the start to win in 1: 02: 38, nearly 6 minutes up on Tibor Vegh, 27, of Flagstaff, who finish in 1:08:32. Jon Harmon, 26, of Phoenix was third in 1:08:53. “I was hoping maybe someone would be willing to go with me the first 5K or 10K,” Wykes said. “But it is what it is. I was prepared to run alone. I wanted to run hard. I really got up for this race.”” With two of the slots already accounted for on the Canadian team, Wykes is hoping his current momentum can carry him all the way to London. In the women’s half marathon, Phoenix native and 5,000/10,000meter track specialist Sara Slattery, 30, of Boulder, Colo. broke the tape in 1:16:24 to win by 2:10 over Dorota Gruca, 41, of Las Cruces, N.M. Allison Krausen, 31, of Edwards, Colo. rounded out the top three in 1:18:43. A high school teammate of Sally Mayerhoff, who won the marathon here last year and died in a tragic bike accident two months later, Slattery had her friend in mind throughout the race. “Sally was really tough,” Slattery remembered. “I didn’t feel great out there. I felt a little tired and sluggish, so whenever I hit a rough patch out there I thought of Sally and she pulled me through.” S
