No love was lost between the schools. Furman’s first outdoor track meet each year was early in March, versus Clemson. One cold March afternoon, the meet was held at Clemson, whose old track had been constructed near the dormitories. That day as the Furman distance runners warmed up near the track, they were doused by pitchers of water from the dorm windows. On a windy 30-degree day, the prank was perfect.

By Pete Rea, ZAP Fitness/Running Journal/October 2010
Summer is our favorite time of year here at ZAP. Running fanatics, in all stages of their running pursuits, descend upon Blowing Rock in search of a few tips (and occasionally a complete overhaul) for their running. Unlike the more traditional resolutions that tend to center around the beginning of the calendar year, we at ZAP have found that running resolutions tend to center on the school year of August/September to late spring.

Animals add a lot to our running. Sometimes intentionally, sometimes not. I don’t live on a farm, in fact we live about a mile inside the city limits, but sometimes our house seems like a farm when one of our four Siamese cats is chasing one of the others and then another one joins the chase. But usually it is Zack chasing Zoe or Fuzzy. Or Fuzzy running after Zack or . . . well you get the idea.

The Turtle Running Club of Ocala, FL, has evolved from just three runners (Terry Varnadoe, Stephanie Barker, and Hugh McNichols) in late 1999. Ocala Turtle Running Group smaller- Fun.jpgThere was little growth as a running club until 2006-07, when the number of participants in our runs slowly grew to the point that we now have 44 turtle members on the email list for our group runs.

By Richard Ferguson, PhD/Running Journal/August 2010
In April I once again ventured to Boston to compete in the Boston Marathon. It had been 18 years since my last Boston Marathon and I was curious as to how the race had changed in the interim. For one thing the race is larger with more than 28,000 entries, wave starts, and chip timing. Some things have remained the same, such as the enthusiasm of the runners, the classic Hopkinton to Boston course, and the thousands of fantastic fans and supporters that line the route as the course passes through the venerable towns of Ashland, Framingham, Wellesley, Newton etc. I came away from the 2010 Boston Marathon with a major theme being etched in my mind, that being the sport of running is very much alive and thriving.

Welcome to my new column about Masters Running! Once upon a time, Running Journal had a Masters Running columnist. Now, after a long hiatus, and after finishing my introductions of Southern Region RRCA State Reps, I am going to write about this topic.

As most of you know, a masters runner is anyone 40 years or older. This includes grandmasters (50 and over) and senior grandmasters (60 and over). We used to be a minority at the races, but as time passed and most of us stayed in the sport, percentage wise we are now much more a force to be reckoned with. The median age in road races has certainly increased since the running boom took off in the 1970s, although it is hard to come by any statistical research that confirms this.
