For the past few years, my 5K times were hovering around 26 minutes. And at age 59, I figured they couldn’t go anywhere but up, i.e. get slower. Then I surprised myself by running in the low 25s this fall and finally a 24:38 on a fast Myrtle Beach course in October. With no changes in my training!

After a pleasant drive up Monte Sano Mountain, we entered the magnificent old stone Monte Sano State Park Lodge banquet room to the beautiful, soothing music of Shirley Hardy playing the harp. After a short period of socializing while all arrived, the more than 100 members and guests attending the 27th Annual Huntsville (AL) Track Club Awards Banquet were treated to a superb spaghetti dinner gratis of the HTC. The music and food had set the mood for a wonderful evening of award presentations.

Youth running program tied to Let's Move Miami campaign

Running USA wire
MIAMI - Middle School students throughout the Dade County School system have begun training in the 2011 ING Run For Something Better® program, which will conclude Sunday, January 30 with more than 5,000 kids participating in a 1.2 mile-run as part of ING Miami Marathon and Half-Marathon® festivities.

The ING Run For Something Better is aligning with First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! national campaign, which hopes to solve the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation so that children born today will reach adulthood at a healthy weight. That initiative involves diet and exercise such as training for the ING Run For Something Better. The local initiative, called Let's Move Miami, runs though February 22.

In the 1987 New York City Marathon, Priscilla Welsh stunned the world by being the overall female winner in a time of 2:30:17, at the age of 42. At that time it was virtually unheard of that a masters runner would take the overall crown in a major road race. We all assumed that as we reached our late 30s, our race times would start to slowly deteriorate, and that after we turned 40, we would no longer have the ability to compete on a level field with younger runners.

In 2007 Brian Boyle competed in his first Ironman triathlon and finished in a time of 14 hours and 42 minutes. Two weeks ago (Nov. 6) in Florida he dropped over 4.5 hours when he finished his third Ironman in a time of 10 hours and 14 minutes. With limited recovery, this past Saturday (Nov. 20) he competed in his first ultramarathon/trail event when he ran in the JFK 50 Mile, which is the oldest ultramarathon in the country. Due to the very technical terrain and also the endurance needed to run to course, some don’t even make it to the finish line - Brian finished in 9:50:16.

Recently the results were published from a USA Track and Field-sponsored clinical trial, that sought to answer the question whether stretching before running increases the risk of injury. Close to 1,400 volunteers completed the study, after being randomly assigned to either perform a specified pre-run stretching routine or no pre-run stretching at all, for a three month period. When a volunteer was sidelined from their usual running routine for three days or more, it was counted as an injury.

“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.
