I want to begin this month’s column with a general note to my valued readers. After writing here in Running Journal for eight years and covering what seems like every subject under the sun that is related to masters running, I will sometimes expand my horizons and write about things that may not specifically apply to Masters runners. Hopefully you will still find a tidbit or two that you find useful, like this month when I focus on getting a beginner runner ready for his or her first race. After all, we were all beginner runners once upon a time, and a few of you may be new to running right now. Also, several of us have friends who have recently taken up running.

Betty 2017.jpgATLANTA – May 10, 2017 – She’s done it again. Atlanta Track Club member Betty Lindberg set another American record, this time in the 400 meters.

The 92-year-old showed up at the Club’s first All Comers Track and Field Meet of the season on May 9 to participate in the 400-meter Grand Prix event. Lindberg finished in 3:05.01 – a USATF national record for the women’s 90+ division. The record is pending ratification by the USATF.

“I’m very pleased with what I did,” said Lindberg via phone the morning after the event, where she received a standing ovation during her final stretch. “I sort of heard people yelling, but I was concentrating so hard to keep going those last 100 meters.”

You Never Forget Your First Marathon

By Rae Ann Darling Reed

I was recently asked a series of questions about my interest in marathons which got me thinking about my first. Like many firsts in our lives, I believe the first marathon is one that will never be forgotten.

Can you tell me a bit about your first ever marathon? When was it, which race, and race time? My first marathon was the Jacksonville Marathon in December 1995 in Jacksonville, Florida, about six months after I graduated from Brown University. I had to wait until after college to run my first marathon since I was on the cross country and track teams.
