Running is the most primeval of all physical activities. Pre-historic man ran simply to survive through hunting and gathering, as well as fleeing from predators. For early man, success through running simply meant living to see the sun rise on another day.

Today, success is certainly defined in a much different way. Unfortunately, in the running world success is too often associated with winning, and to most laymen, winning means finishing first. But do you really have to win or finish first to be a successful runner? I would say most certainly not.

Success is far too often associated with some particular outcome, such as a championship, trophy or medal. For others success may mean having great wealth, fame or a position of power.

Arkansas Running Klub
North Little Rock, AR

(This article was first published in the June issue of Ark Rundown.)

In the early 1980's a club was born. One morning I found myself at lake number three running with a group of the charter members of the Arkansas Running Klub. We were running as a very close group because a very serious question had been posed. What are we doing? What is the correct definition of what we are doing?

The discussion went on as we cooled down from our six mile run. When we finally started home we had come to the conclusion that we were running.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan – For the second championship in a row, predicted sunny skies did not arrive for the USATF Masters National Championships runners. At the Half Marathon Championships hosted by the Ann Arbor Track Club, the skies opened up and the rain poured down a half hour before the race. During the race, it was mostly light rain or sprinkles, with mid-60’s temps and moderate wind, followed by clearing for the end-of-the race celebrations. All-in-all, conditions were good for the tour of the scenic rolling hills along the Huron River.

In the race to be first USATF Masters athlete across the finish line overall, it came down to a terrific battle between Greg Mitchell of Oregon’s Bowerman Track Club and David Angell of Virginia’s Roanoke Valley Elite. The lead pack, consisting of Angell, Matthew Folk, Jonathan Frieder, Mitchell, Sam Teigen, and Olivier Vrambout, were taken out at a brisk pace by Mitchell.
