The 10,000 meters on Night two of the USA Outdoors was my proof that I was finally, after eighteen years in Wisconsin, home in the Golden State.

One of the more colorful and talented, multi generational running clubs in the US, the Aggies were kings of Golden state distance running in the 80's, 90's and now, into their second generation. Many of the top athletes from the 80s in this club are coaching high school and college across the state.

Staying Sane in a World Gone Crazy

By Carolyn Mather, RN PhD.

As many of my readers know I decided to celebrate my 65th birthday by running a marathon a month. I am halfway done and have begun to wonder where this crazy idea originated. Fortunately this got me to thinking and as I deliberated during my many miles, I came up with some interesting insights and the idea for this column. Let me also state at this point that I am not a normal 65-year-old woman -- whatever that may be. I have endless energy and can outlast most folks half my age. I still run 120- mile plus weeks as I have for over 30 years. I manage to stay healthy even though I rarely take a day off. I manage to maintain some speed given my age although I must say being age challenged is not for the weak of heart and fast is a very relative term now.

TracyHarris.jpg "It's all about the pelvis," my friend and physical therapist proclaimed recently. I wholeheartedly agreed, in part because I was in the middle of a dozen exercises to fix my own pelvis and disagreeing seemed like the kind of thing that would get me five more reps of something horrendously uncomfortable.
