In the 1987 New York City Marathon, Priscilla Welsh stunned the world by being the overall female winner in a time of 2:30:17, at the age of 42. At that time it was virtually unheard of that a masters runner would take the overall crown in a major road race. We all assumed that as we reached our late 30s, our race times would start to slowly deteriorate, and that after we turned 40, we would no longer have the ability to compete on a level field with younger runners.

In 2007 Brian Boyle competed in his first Ironman triathlon and finished in a time of 14 hours and 42 minutes. Two weeks ago (Nov. 6) in Florida he dropped over 4.5 hours when he finished his third Ironman in a time of 10 hours and 14 minutes. With limited recovery, this past Saturday (Nov. 20) he competed in his first ultramarathon/trail event when he ran in the JFK 50 Mile, which is the oldest ultramarathon in the country. Due to the very technical terrain and also the endurance needed to run to course, some don’t even make it to the finish line - Brian finished in 9:50:16.

Recently the results were published from a USA Track and Field-sponsored clinical trial, that sought to answer the question whether stretching before running increases the risk of injury. Close to 1,400 volunteers completed the study, after being randomly assigned to either perform a specified pre-run stretching routine or no pre-run stretching at all, for a three month period. When a volunteer was sidelined from their usual running routine for three days or more, it was counted as an injury.

“Y’all sound like a team of draft horses,” shouted my college track coach. He was referring to me and my two fellow freshman distance runner teammates as we completed a 440 on the Furman University track. Certainly we did not sparkle in comparison to our All-American triple jump teammate, a junior.

For some of us, running in the dark is a necessity. The manufacturers of technical apparel and accessories have gone a long way to provide us with 360-degree reflectivity, high number of candle power on our apparel and footwear, blinking lights for better visibility or better sight. As a specialty store, we have many options to keep you visible during your runs when the sun is down.
