chippewa.jpg Trolleys, buses, horse & carriages, walking, bicycles, there are as many ways to see Savannah as there are trees covered with Spanish moss or things bearing the name Oglethorpe, as in Gen. James Edward Oglethorpe, the founder of the colony who came up with the city design and its gridlike layout of squares and streets.

Have you been hearing stories that fats are better than carbs for fuel for endurance runners and triathletes? Maybe you have wondered if scientific research supports those stories?

To find the latest science, I attended the annual meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). ACSM is an organization with more than 26,000 exercise physiologists, sports nutrition researchers, and sports medicine professionals—all of whom are eager to share both their research and extensive knowledge. At this year’s meeting in San Diego (May 2015), I was able to verify that carbohydrates are indeed, the preferred fuel for all athletes. The following information highlights some of the research on carbohydrates that might be of interest to hungry runners.

Symmonds_NickFHL1a-USout15-thumb-500x333-12401-thumb-500x333-12402.jpg  Irrepressible Nick Symmonds had a tough year in 2014. With an injured knee from the previous indoor track season plaguing his fitness last year, Symmonds didn't appear in any serious races to speak of, and consequently suffered from the usual lack of confidence that these injuries tend to instill in elite athletes.

93 miles. That is how far I made it in The Great New York Running Exposition 100 mile. (Officially I got credit for a 100 kilometer finish.) I crashed at 92.5 miles, by 93 I was burned.

This was the fourth edition of this race, the brainchild of Phil McCarthy, current American record holder at 48 hours (254 miles) and multi time US National team member at 24 hours with a number of finishes beyond 150 miles. His vision to host a 100 miler encompassing the 4 land boroughs of New York City has grown during the past 4 years.
