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.

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.

Ferguson, Richard.jpg  .jpgMany of you are planning a big race this spring. Maybe you will be going to Boston for the marathon, running the Cooper River 10K, or maybe you have circled a local race on the calendar to point toward. The race you have identified is THE race you want to perform your best in this spring. You are motivated to train and really excited about getting ready for and competing in your targeted race. However, there will be many distractions during the time you training for the race and at the race itself.

Dugger, Jim.jpg  .jpgLike a lot of folks right now, I’m just starting to dig myself out of a snow bank and access the damage. Too many days locked inside and the wife is starting to run out of indoor fix’em up projects for me. I hate snow and ice no matter how pretty it is when it comes down. Let’s think about warmer weather and some serious sweating.

bio straight hair 015edited  72.jpg Runners are an interesting lot. For starters, as we get older, we are the only segment of the population, as far as I know, who are really eager to get older.

No matter where we run, awards will be given in our age group. When you first enter an age group, generally you are faster than your older counterparts in the same age group. As a runner reaches 58 or 59, for example, the 55-year-olds entering that same age group generally are going to be faster. Not always, but usually this is so.
