SAVANNAH — The oldest city in Georgia played host to thousands of runners and hundreds of musicians and entertainers at the seventh edition of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Savannah Marathon & ½ Marathon on Saturday. Conditions in the “hostess city of the South” were warm for this time of year, but organizers had prepared to give participants the best-possible race and started the event 10 minutes early. Nevertheless, at the sounding of the starting gun, temperatures were in the high 50s—optimal for fast times and many PRs.

krahe.jpg The Internet has allowed more runners to work with coaches — and for more people to become coaches themselves. Just like runners, the story behind each coach is different. The how and why they decided to coach, and how they go about it.

Denny Krahe only recently became a runner — but worked as an athletic trainer, in physical therapy, and as a personal trainer, first. Based in Lakeland, Florida, when he finally caught the running bug, Denny caught it hard.

Now a running coach and host of the popular running podcast DizRuns, Denny is on a quest: to run a marathon in every state and to qualify for the Boston Marathon.

Brown.jpgWill Brown of Raleigh, NC, recognized as one of the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) beloved Groundpounders, has announced his retirement from running the Marine Corps Marathon after having participated in “The People’s Marathon” for 42 consecutive years. The 71-year-old Brown made his final run during the 42nd MCM on Sunday, Oct. 22.

The Groundpounders were a select few who had officially completed every year of the event. By 40th MCM in 2015, only Brown and Al Richmond of Arlington, VA remained MCM Groundpounders.

Brown completed his 40th consecutive MCM and then returned to run the 41st MCM in 2016 but did not complete the 26.2-mile course. That resulted in Richmond being the only Groundpounder.
