Healthy Running is Fun and Sustainable Running — Love Affair with 3 Marathons
By Dr. Mark Cucuzzella
After enjoying another Marine Corps Marathon (47th place in 2:49 age 48) curiosity led to digging into past races that stretch back several decades. So into the archives I plunged to see how many MCMs (I thought it was 22) and what the times were. So I contacted my friend and Marine Corps Marathon historian George Banker (himself a 31-time MCM finisher, a member of the MCM Hall of Fame, and author of the book “History of the Marine Corps Marathon”). At one time George had sent me a picture of his basement which was filled with old newspapers, magazines, and photos of running history.
I am grateful to people like George who save things. I have moved too many times in my career to gather things. Not...
Barefoot Run Around the Ponds in Nampa, Idaho
By Dirty Bird
It was a great adventure being around others running on pure skin. Being able to see their stride and flow of barefoot running from other well seasoned runners was a great re-inforcer that I was on the right track.
Wilson ponds turned out to be a great place to run. The scenery was sensational. Lots of people and nature out enjoying the wonderful weather. Oddly, I never did catch a single person reeling in a fish, hmmmm. The pavement, all though smooth, was a lot courser than I was used to running on for long periods of time. Mother nature also managed to toss in some flavor of her own with these wonderful trees that loved to drop pea sized seeds on the path. One was very lucky to be able to get through those obstacles without having to brush the...
Forest Half Marathon Denmark
By Line Kolbe
This past Sunday I ran a half marathon in Denmark called Løberen Skovmarathon which is a race in the beautiful danish forest near Hillerød. You could choose between a 10K, a half marathon and a marathon. I did the half marathon last year together with Berit and this year I wanted to do the half marathon again, and together with Berit again. This is now something we will do every year. I nice tradition (hopefully we will be able to do the whole marathon once we get even better at running...). My goal was not to beat the time from last year, but to simply get through it without my knee starting to act...
New Zealand (Zeeland)
By Tim Soekkha & Mark Blonk
At the start I ran into Tim. After a short chat we went to the start area.
We took our place at times 3:30 and 4:00. Of course this was way too fast but as Tim said we might get a good going and wouldn't get stuck. Indeed, compared to last year, it was a far better start.
Together we ran a in smooth pace out of Burg Haamstede and into the woods. When I'm in Zeeland I train a lot in this area. After the woords we climbed to the beach. Here I felt my knee for the first time but it was not bothersome. Off the beach we ran into the first food/drink station....
