OK. Fess up. How many of you have that running shirt? How many of you have seen it in a store and wanted to buy it because you thought it was one of the best shirts out there? One of the reasons is because it is so true!

How many times have you been faced with a tough problem or situation and decided to go out for a run to gain clarity or solutions? Running has long been studied as a first line of defense against depression and improving mood and overall well-being. That is the number one reason why runners get so cranky when they can’t run: endorphin withdrawal.

PA kissing Granny before the Tally marathon.jpgI am utilizing my column this month to honor my dearly departed Steve. Steve was a giant of a man and, as over the years I have told many, a teddy bear or a grizzly bear. I have seen both bears but obviously the teddy bear was all mine. When I first met Steve he smoked three packs of cigarettes a day and weighed about 235 pounds. But it was love at first sight. We spent the first several hours after we met being soul mates but it took us a year to get down to being best friends and eventually husband and wife.

Z18-thumb-500xauto-13992.jpgWhen a family vacation cruise to Alaska finishes up in Seattle with 3 days to spare, what else should one do but visit the Nike Campus Headquarters approximately two hours away in Beaverton, Oregon? So we just did it (pardon the pun), and it sure didn't disappoint. While the company began in the late 60's as Blue Ribbon Sports but then became Nike in 1971, Nike's World Campus Headquarters, or, as I like to call it, The "House that Phil Built" was begun in 1990 with eight buildings in October 1990 that cost about $147 million. It has now expanded into something more.

Shorter_Frank1-VaBeach12-thumb-500x750-13961.jpgWithout question, Frank Shorter takes quiet pride in the gold and silver Olympic marathon medals he captured in the '70's. Quite frankly, they serve as symbols of all of his distance running accomplishments which were the product of a thoughtfully-assembled and thoroughly-executed training approach he brought to the sport of marathoning and track & field.
