Kitchen Divided_COVER_CMYK.jpgMy second “baby” has been born -- my new book, “Kitchen Divided-Vegan Dishes for Semi-Vegan Households,” has been shipped by the publisher to the usual distribution networks. It’s already off to a great start on Amazon, the numbers by which everything is measured. Like my first book, “Eat Vegan on $4 a Day,” my publisher says it takes several months to get into full distribution. 

As I wrote in the first book, it’s more important to have a person who loves and respects you than a clone at the dinner table. My soulmate and dear hubby, Clarence, would sooner die than give up his steak. As you might imagine, I’ve tempted him with everything I can think of, including my good health. But as I say in “Kitchen Divided,” you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.

Timbo sRGB copy.jpgIt has been said that we can never truly understand another person until we have “walked a mile in his shoes." One can therefore conclude that if we were trying to understand Nancy Sinatra, we would probably be prancing around in a pair of go-go boots that were “made for walkin’.” If we wanted to relate to the rapping aptitude of Run DMC, we would likely be walking and talking in a previously conceived “way” in a pair of oversized Adidas (less the laces and with tongues out). And whether the line was straight or slightly bent, we can best bet that a path to better perceiving the “Man in Black” would call for shoes of a similar color.

Arkansas Races Fill the Calendar

costumes .jpgFor Arkansas to be such a small state, we have races that fill the race calendar with ease. There are some weekends when there are more than 60 races in the state. The number of races usually dwindles in the summer. Heat and humidity are a direct cause of the decrease in races.

These conditions force runners to decide how bad they want to run. Memorial Day weekend is the last time before summer for runners to take advantage of a four-day weekend of races. Memorial Day weekend in central Arkansas is a weekend of food, music, fun, and running!

Dear RJ runners: Let’s share our inspiration. We can generate a monthly column about that spark that keeps us and others, people we know and don’t know, on the path to PRs, good health, satisfaction, social ministry, and the celebration of life.

My experiences might entice you to remember your special moments on the trail, in an event, or running in your neighborhood. My first running “seed” was planted in 1956, in high school, by a fellow student a few years ahead of me.

Hoping to again have the men's and women's Olympic Marathon Trials at the same site, USATF is seeking bids from interested cities.

The 2012 Olympic Trials in Houston marked the first time the men and women competed at the same site for Olympic Team marathon berths. The event featured 375 athletes competing and a two-hour, race-day broadcast nationally on NBC.

Ferguson,_Richard.jpg___3.jpgMaybe you’re looking at running in your first race, or possibly you’re considering tackling a half-marathon, maybe even a full marathon. It may be that you have been running for years and have begun to consider running an ultra event or even a triathlon. But there seems to be a little problem, and that problem is you are a bit scared of the new challenge. You are constantly asking yourself, “Can I do this?” You may possibly have some fearful visions of not being able to finish that first race, marathon, or ultra event. Truth is, the real challenge may not actually be the event you are considering running in, but the thoughts in your head that are trying to convince you that you can’t be successful.

Rea,_Peter.jpg__0.jpgEach summer here at ZAP we are fortunate to have some of American long distance running’s early greats come through our doors as guest speakers. From Boston Marathon winners Bill Rodgers and Greg Meyer to Patti Catalano (first American women to break 2:30 in the marathon) and Dick Beardsley, we enjoy having those who have reached the sport’s pinnacle impart their knowledge. One common thread amongst these 1970s and 1980s running boomers was their style of training. In short the stars of the Carter, Reagan years ran and ran more.
