Max Siegel has been CEO of USA Track & Field since May 1, 2012. A seasoned sports and music marketing executive, Max possesses the unique skills needed to move USA Track & Field into a more visible position in the global world of sports and sports entertainment.

2012 was a whirlwind year for Max (actually, six months). An Olympic Games where the US medal haul was 29 track & field medals, including medals in all 4 relays and a 4 x 100m womens relay world record gave the US lots of positive media.

The Running Network reached out to Max Siegel with seven questions. As you will read, Max Siegel does not want USA Track & Field to sit on its laurels. Siegel realizes that the sport will grow only if he can identify the strengths of the sport and communicate them to potential partners.

•Avoid running on the roads in snowy conditions. Drivers have a decreased ability to maneuver and stop.

•Winter means fewer daylight hours. Wear bright-colored, reflective clothing or a reflective vest so you are noticeable to area traffic. For added visibility, wear a lightweight headlamp or flashing light.

•Wear layers of clothing that will help you maintain your core body temperature during the run but will keep you warm during warm-up and cool-down phases.

By Carolyn Mather, RN, PhD.
Mather,_Carolyn.jpg__.jpgAs we enter another season of marathoning, I thought I would share what I have found to be the very best recovery tips after having finished 114 marathons. Although each of us has a variety of recovery strategies, I find that the following methods work but are often not followed. Plan to try all, or at least some, of the following after your next marathon. Your body will thank you.

Crossing the finish line is an emotional experience. Regardless of your time, you have completed 26.2 miles. Your body has gone the distance and after congratulating yourself, there are two key elements that need to be done immediately.

Mary Cain of New York, a high school junior, ran a 4:32.78 mile, to break the girls’ high school mile record.

Just 16 years old, Cain shattered the old record of 4:38.5 set in 1972 by Debbie Heald in Richmond, VA., with a wild dash to the finish line, moving from seventh to third place against the elite field of older runners.

MIAMI, FL -- Running the first marathon of his life, Guatemalan Luis Rivero Gonzalez won the 2013 ING Miami Marathon on January 27 by separating himself quickly from the field and never looking back.

Rivero finished in a modest time of 2:26:14 on a South Florida morning that alternated between humid and brisk, playing mind games with the 25,000 runners who participated in South Florida's largest running event.

"It felt great to be able to represent my country and win this marathon for them," Rivero Gonzalez said. "I had great expectations to win this race. This is what I trained for."

The 26-year-old was two minutes faster than David Tuwei (2:28:15) and TesfayeBekele (2:28:22), who were among a group of five runners who ran together for the final 25 miles.
