You can help him reach his dreams

Michael Murray.jpgMichael Murray is a gifted 20-year-old runner from Nashville, TN, who ran 4:18 in the 1500 meters in the world championships in New Zealand this year.

He was born with an intellectual disability but that has not stopped him from his Olympic dreams. At an early age, a team of doctors and psychologists determined he was severely language impaired.

“At the age of eight, Michael began running track,” his mother, Kathryn Murray Mays, related. “He began running in the local Special Olympic meets. Just one problem, they were running for fun, he was running to win, and did.

Teri Saylor photo.jpgAfter a lifelong fear of running, my fear of middle-age spread scared me more, and I joined the Galloway Marathon Training program in Raleigh, NC.

My disbelieving friends and family shook their heads and diagnosed me with a profound mental illness despite my insistence that I would never run a marathon.

But the day I completed a 16-mile training run, I began to agree that I might, indeed, be crazy for running all of those miles without having a goal.

Ferguson,_Richard.jpg__.jpgThink back to the time when you first began running. Was there one particular individual who you really admired that served as a type of role model to get you started running? Is there anyone today that you look up to in your running and who you really feel is a positive influence on your running? I’m sure most of you can think of such role models you’ve had in the past and today. For most runners role models have played a very important part in their running careers.

Continental Divide Trail Race again to host off-road national championship; up-and-down challenging course has 1,500 feet of climbing
Running USA wire
LAUREL SPRINGS, N.C. - The Continental Divide Trail Race, on Saturday, August 27, will once again host the USA 10K Trail Championships. With 1,500 feet of climbing and some highly technical sections, some have described it as the hardest race they've ever run, with two big climbs, both ¼ mile with 18.5% and 22+% averages, plus no less than 9 difficult climbs.

The men's field looks strong and ready for the national trail tilt. Bobby Mack, 26, will return to defend his crown. The Raleigh, N.C. resident has already won the USA 8K road championship this year; can he match it with a trail title repeat? Ryan Woods is also back, trying to improve on his runner-up finishes the last two years. Ryan and Jared Scott have been racing against each other since February in the La Sportiva Mountain Cup series; Jared beat Ryan at two races, but Ryan beat Jared when he met him on his home turf in North Carolina.

MarcD_photo3.jpgMontgomery County, Tennessee: To say Marc DiBernardo runs for a reason is an understatement. On Saturday, October 15, this Fort Campbell Soldier will run in the Go Commando Half Marathon presented by CDE Lightband in hopes of breaking his second world record. His mission is to bring awareness to Team Red, White & Blue, a non-profit organization committed to wounded veterans and their families.

DiBernardo began running when he joined the military in 2002. However, he soon took running to a new level. Each time he enters an event, DiBernardo wears a unique piece of racing equipment, a gas mask. What started as a lighthearted approach to fitness turned into a passion.
