Kiplagat_Edna-BostonM17-thumb-500x750-23558.jpg(Editor’s note: The women's race in Boston in 2017 was quite satisfying on several levels. Edna Kiplagat is one of the most enduring marathoners in our sport, and her show of strength, savvy and tactics was a great model for veteran marathoners. On the other side, Jordan Hasay, the debutante marathoner, just blew through expectations. And Desi Linden, who ran with one goal, to win, gave it her all, and took fourth. Here's Carolyn Mather's feature on the women's race from the 121st Boston Marathon.)

Injuries seem to be the bane of runners. Just when all is going smoothly, you pull something, fall, get a bad virus or anything to disrupt your training. Not only is it incredibly frustrating but recovery seems to be a difficult process. As we get older, it gets increasingly hard.

When I fell during a race several months after my Steve died, I felt I was truly jinxed. I have no idea how I fell but it was hard. I picked myself up and walked to the finish. I iced the injury to my upper arm and refused to go to any doctor. The brilliant colors my arm turned were amazing but after 10 days I had a completely dark blue arm and shoulder. To be able to get some therapy I had to get a doctor's order. I went to my local urgent care center and got the news that my humerus was totally fractured where it met my shoulder. Of course by the time I got an appointment with an orthopedist (four weeks later), it was nearly healed. I finally got a physical therapy order in late March and started my journey to heal.

Arlington, VA – Encouraging the next generation of runners through community-based programming is the goal of the Road Runners Club of America’s Kids Run the Nation Program, and this week marks the introduction of the newly updated Program Guide for Teachers, Coaches, and Program Leaders.

Originally developed in 1986 by a team of experts including Olympic marathoner Don Kardong, the RRCA introduced the Teacher’s and Coach’s Curriculum Guide in an effort to combat the childhood obesity epidemic. The program evolved into the print and digital curriculum now known as Kids Run the Nation in 2008 and has undergone periodic updates since.
