MIDWAY, KY — There’s a “PR gift” this year at the Iron Horse Half Marathon in that an additional 12K race option will be offered. Why a 12K? “Because everyone deserves a free PR every once in a while,” a race official said.

The annual half marathon — and now a 12K — will be held Oct. 15 at Midway, which is located between Lexington and Frankfort, KY.

IMG_8551.JPGRALEIGH, NC — On April 2, deep in the dark woods of Umstead State Park at Raleigh, NC, there was a chill in the air as the black night sky drifted into pink dawn and the stars faded in the early morning light. Richard Hunter, in tears, burst over the finish line at the Umstead 100 Endurance Race, 24 hours, 29 minutes and 47 seconds after he started at 6 a.m. the previous day.

April Fool's Day seems a likely holiday to begin the kind of feat many people consider a folly, but at Umstead Park every spring, the 100-mile race is more like a family reunion. For Hunter, 49, whose vision has been fading for the past 30 years, traveling to Raleigh to compete in the Umstead 100 was like a holy grail.

Scott-Wietecha-900x600.jpgNASHVILLE, TN — At mile 11, Scott Wietecha’s legs started shutting down. By mile 20, despite his best efforts to stay hydrated, the 35-year-old was no longer sweating. 
 
Competing in Saturday’s 18th running of the St. Jude Rock ’n’ Roll Nashville Marathon was a struggle for the 35-year-old. However, despite this race being a little more difficult than those he’s run in the past, he still found a way to win the event for the fifth straight year, finishing in 2:40:26.

Of more than 100 Tampa Bay runners at Boston, he and Joe Burgasser were the oldest. We asked Wieringa, an endurance coach, for a report on his race.)

By Albert Wieringa

Turning 70 last year I decided to give the Boston marathon one more shot. Being the baby in the new age group I could try to place in the top 3 of the ‘Dinosaur-Division.’ I followed the same strategy as five years ago, when — at age 65 — I was also the baby in the group and finished first.
