“Y’all sound like a team of draft horses,” shouted my college track coach. He was referring to me and my two fellow freshman distance runner teammates as we completed a 440 on the Furman University track. Certainly we did not sparkle in comparison to our All-American triple jump teammate, a junior.

For some of us, running in the dark is a necessity. The manufacturers of technical apparel and accessories have gone a long way to provide us with 360-degree reflectivity, high number of candle power on our apparel and footwear, blinking lights for better visibility or better sight. As a specialty store, we have many options to keep you visible during your runs when the sun is down.

It could be a friend, a stranger, a runner. Every three days, more Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest than the number who died in the 9-11 attacks. You can lessen this recurring loss by performing Continuous Chest Compression CPR, a hands-only CPR method that doubles a person’s chance of surviving cardiac arrest.

Carolina T-F.jpgThe Carolinas Track and Field Club of Charlotte was founded in 2001 by Dr. Gordon Edwards who had experience coaching on the high school level and in college at Nevada Las Vegas and Campbell University. We started with only five members. Today we have more than 100 members throughout North and South Carolina. Membership is open to men and women ages 25 and over.

Through the years I have attempted to share some of my wisdom gained from more than 30 years of running, competing, and coaching. When I started running in 1978 there was not much information available and we certainly did not have the Internet. There is so much information out there today that it can be contradictory and just pure overwhelming. You still have to do what we did back then and find what works best for you and your situation. You are really an experiment of one!

Calhoun County, Alabama residents have reported numerous sightings of a very strange creature lurking through the streets of the anniston.jpgAnniston/Calhoun County area. It has 1260 legs, is often dripping with sweat, and usually breathes fairly heavily.

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.

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.

By Cedric Jaggers/Running Journal/September 2010

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.
