Hollman,_Lena.jpg__.jpgWhen you read this, I am about to celebrate my 20th anniversary as a masters runner. I will be 60 years old in May. Yes, 60!! I can’t quite make it sink in that soon I will “officially” be considered a senior, and get the matinee rate at many establishments, including my favorite movie theatre. Especially since I feel as vibrant as if it were my 20th birthday coming up instead! With a recent career change into personal training, and an improvement of a minute and a half in my 5K time during the past year, it’s like I am a young woman starting out in life.

Running Doc's Guide to Healthy Running: How to Fix Injuries, Stay Active, and Run Pain-Free is the first comprehensive guide to avoiding and overcoming running injuries. The American Medical Athletic Association has estimated that every year 37-50% of America's 44 million runners suffer a running-related injury severe enough to bring them to a halt. For these runners, injury is a frustrating fate that delays their fitness, performance, and weight-loss goals. With Running Doc's Guide to Healthy Running, runners can beat injuries and enjoy running pain-free. The book is now available in bookstores, running shops, and online. Runners can download a preview of the more than 100 injuries and conditions covered at velopress.com/runningdoc.

rotish.jpg Ed Roshitsh, former Charleston, SC, business executive, is running across America – that’s nearly 2,500 miles. He began the run March 1 and plans to finish April 30 at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, CA.

He is raising funds for Freedom is Not Free and Soles4Souls, a pair of non-profits located in Nashville, TN, and San Diego. The first organization assists wounded military personnel in need, the latter recycles shoes for people in need around the world.
