Save the BRS Fundraiser The Site is in Major Need of Your Immediate Help!
The site is old, outdated, broken, and at risk. Due to the havoc Covid has taken on our lives and bank accounts, we are way behind in raising funds (2016 was our last) to keep the site going...but, as far as I'm concerned, the BRS takes a back seat when it comes to people's health and livelihoods which are always most important.
But it's time. The site is nearing critical condition and needs to be upgraded both in terms of its platform/OS software, along with some of its modules, and the server it sits on (an old coot that will soon be retired,...

Chronic Calf Pulls Nearly Stopped My Running Career
In 2007, I ran the Virginia Beach Marathon. It was my fastest marathon, qualifying me for the Boston Marathon for a second time.
Unfortunately, I never made it to Boston again.

Meet the oldest runners in the 2023 Boston Marathon By Boston.com
Ten years ago, Tyson Park ran his first Boston Marathon.
The then-71-year-old had spent about four years looking for ways to improve his health, including by going on hikes and changing his diet. Eventually, he decided to enter Boston’s 26.2-mile race. And with the unique opinion that the comfort shoes provided took away from the challenge of the marathon, Park decided to run barefoot.
He was a few hours into his run, nearing the Citgo sign, when he cut his foot. Ten to 15 minutes later, he said, the first of two bombs went off near the marathon finish...
Youths of Nepal and India run 50 kilometers every day to have their names written on Guinness book of World records By My Republica
POKHARA, April 2: According to international standards, a runner should rest for three months after running a marathon. That is why a runner who has run in one event does not participate in the next marathon event. This is because running a marathon consumes a lot of energy which takes about three months to replenish.
But two young men from Nepal and India are used to running 50 kilometers daily, and that too barefoot. Amrit Basnet of Jajarkot and Visakhkrishna Swami of Maharashtra, India run 50 km daily with the aim of getting their names written on the Guinness Book of World Records.
