Who are the fastest marathoners in the state where you live? Not as easy to find out as you might think. Just go to the USATF.org website and look it up right? Click on stats and every state record will be there -- well no. You get records but try to find state records. No luck. But they must exist somewhere, so you will probably have to check with the state record keeper for the state where you live.

Bill Marable is the USATF representative for South Carolina. The latest list of state records I have from him lists the South Carolina marathon state record in the marathon run by a South Carolina resident, as 2:22:17 run by Paul Laymon.

Youth running program tied to Let's Move Miami campaign

Running USA wire
MIAMI - Middle School students throughout the Dade County School system have begun training in the 2011 ING Run For Something Better® program, which will conclude Sunday, January 30 with more than 5,000 kids participating in a 1.2 mile-run as part of ING Miami Marathon and Half-Marathon® festivities.

The ING Run For Something Better is aligning with First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! national campaign, which hopes to solve the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation so that children born today will reach adulthood at a healthy weight. That initiative involves diet and exercise such as training for the ING Run For Something Better. The local initiative, called Let's Move Miami, runs though February 22.

Hghlands RRcolor.jpgYears ago while on a trip to a race in West Virginia, Editor Mary Lou Day and I came up with the slogan, “We Run the South.”It’s been a good slogan for Running Journal, our website, and our monthly newsletter -- and others have borrowed from, adapted to, or developed a similar slogan. The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), for example: “We Run the Nation.”

As you read this, the New Year 2011 is about to begin, or maybe it has just started. If you are like many people, including myself, you may have set some New Year’s resolutions. Or maybe you don’t have any specific resolutions or goals, but are simply hoping for a successful year with a few good races, and no injuries. Regardless, the beginning of a year is a good time to evaluate where we are in fitness as well as in life, and where we want to be a year from now.

Completing 106 marathons in the year 2010, Larry Macon, 66, of San Antonio, Texas, and Yolanda Holder, 52, of Corona, California, broke the record on Dec. 31 for most marathons in a calendar year. The records were broken in Ocala, Florida, at the “Savage Seven,” which offered marathoners the opportunity to run seven marathons in seven days. The event was organized by Chuck Savage of Ocala, who has run 282 marathons and completed four during the week. The Turtle Running Club and the Lions Club worked from 5 a.m. each day until the last finisher completed a race. More details in the February issue of Running Journal.

And the #1 Moment is...
By Ryan Lamppa, Running USA wire

Over the past decade (2001-10), U.S. distance running has produced many highlights including world titles, Olympic and World Championship medals, world and U.S. records as well as major marathon victories, and this progressive resurgence, led by the return of training groups, has made the U.S. the third best distance running power behind Kenya and Ethiopia, a ranking that many, or perhaps most in the sport, would have called a "pipe dream" in 2000 when the U.S. sent only one athlete per gender for the Sydney Olympic Marathon. In this ten year period, there have been a host of "best moments" by U.S. runners, and below is my Top 10.
