Ferguson,_Richard.jpg__.jpgNone of us were born being positive or negative thinkers. We have all learned to think in a positive or negative manner through varied life and socialization experiences. The word “learn” is the key here! We can all learn to become more positive in how we approach our running and how we approach life in general.

Life has its ups and downs, ongoing challenges, and obstacles that must be overcome. We can use these challenges as an excuse for not trying or even as an excuse for failing, or we can look at challenges as an opportunity to become successful.

Mather,_Carolyn.jpg__.jpgThe death of Sally Meyerhoff was the main topic as the elite field assembled at the 34th Gate River Run national 15K championship. Sally died instantly when she crashed her bicycle into a truck after failing to yield the right of way. We were all reminded how precious and fragile life is and how quickly it can be gone. Sally was a friend, one of my dark horse picks to make the 2012 Olympic team and an incredible role model for young athletes. She had just obtained her professional triathlete license and finally had her life exactly where she wanted it to be.

Hollman,_Lena.jpg__.jpgWhen you read this, I am about to celebrate my 20th anniversary as a masters runner. I will be 60 years old in May. Yes, 60!! I can’t quite make it sink in that soon I will “officially” be considered a senior, and get the matinee rate at many establishments, including my favorite movie theatre. Especially since I feel as vibrant as if it were my 20th birthday coming up instead! With a recent career change into personal training, and an improvement of a minute and a half in my 5K time during the past year, it’s like I am a young woman starting out in life.

rotish.jpg Ed Roshitsh, former Charleston, SC, business executive, is running across America – that’s nearly 2,500 miles. He began the run March 1 and plans to finish April 30 at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, CA.

He is raising funds for Freedom is Not Free and Soles4Souls, a pair of non-profits located in Nashville, TN, and San Diego. The first organization assists wounded military personnel in need, the latter recycles shoes for people in need around the world.

NCRC_Resolution.jpgIce was still hanging around after a freak Christmas snow, but on the first day of 2011, the weather was balmy.
A couple hundred runners, walkers and New Years Eve resolution-makers abandoned their noisemakers, shook off holiday hangovers and cobwebs, and set out on their first run of 2011.
