News on BADWATER®: There are a lot of ways to be bad

Recently there was some controversy over the traditional Badwater 135 which occurs in Death Valley every July. Instead of going through Death Valley, the race will go through Owens Valley. While the race will still end at the famous Whitney Portal, the original course was shut down when Park authorities from the National Park Service, closed the park to the race late last year.  Famous athletes like Pam Reed, have already signed up for the race. BADWATER® now has a series of new races. This content is right from the Adventure Corps website. To learn more, visit http://www.badwater.com/ The BADWATER® experience comes to the East Coast for the first time when the inaugural BADWATER® CAPE FEAR race takes place on Bald H ead Island, North Carolina on March 22, 2014. BADWATER CAPE FEAR is a 51.4-mile ultra running race featuring a twelve-mile warm-up on the car-free, one-lane-wide roads and trails of Bald Head Island,…

September 29, 2012
By
Michelle Santilhano

  With  the Lake Anna Double and Triple IRON coming up next week (Oct 4-8) this seemed like a good time to showcase Michelle Santilhano, who ran a DECA IRON. Yes, that ten IRON distance races non-stop. ERM: How do you have time to train and compete in these epic distance races? Santilhano: My athletic endurance activities are done during my vacation time or on odd long weekends.  I was introduced into endurance racing during my experiences with Outward Bound in South Africa during high school. The lesson of the tortoise and the hare was made very clear during this formative time. This lesson is what has gotten me to the finish line of my hardest events. ERM: How did you get started in endurance racing? Santilhano: What caused me to develop the ultra gene was when I recognized the missing sprint genes for top ten finishes. I also decided…

QUESTION OF THE WEEK

runner-wearing-compression-socks-by-triitalian

Do compression socks work? I’ve been interested in getting compression socks but I have wondered if by increasing circulation they increase healing. Well there’s only way to find out.  Buy them and give them a try. I am going to buy a pair – but where do you start? How often do you wear them? I have a pair of compression running tights and I love them. They make be feel more stable – but I’d like to take an informal pole out there to see who’s using them, when, and why.  I’d like to hear from manufacturers about their products – how are sales going? Should their be a compression clothing revolution? See http://compressionsocksguide.com/compression-athletic-socks/ Tweet

Forefoot Pain….Part 3.

Forefoot Pain….Part 3.

By Alix Shutello It’s marathon training time! And as a result of my training…..every conceivable ache and pain is plaguing me. As a distance runner, I’ve had every conceivable injury known to man; I’ve been to physical therapy for patellar pain, post op therapy for both knees, and a shoulder injury (that one was yoga related; who knew you could dislocate your shoulder doing yoga?). I have worked through my own hamstring and plantar faciatis issues. However, last year when I posted two articles on metatarsal pain, I was pleasantly surprised to learn I wasn’t alone in dealing with this issue. Logging the miles does increase the possibility of injury…..and for women especially, the shoes we wear also contribute to the possibility of increased injury. See my article on this laster year: Forefoot Pain in Athletes. I noticed that my right forefoot is bugging me.  This is the same foot that was giving me…

Going Minimalist – Thanks to “Born To Run”

September 8, 2011
By
Coach Tom Kalka

A switch to minimalist shoes and a new running style was the only thing that ended my cycle of injury and reinjury. By Tom Kalka, Fitness Concepts I have been running competitively since 1988 and I consider myself to be an above average runner. Statistically, my race results support this claim.  In my career, I’ve done two marathons and countless triathlons and road races of various distances.  I was on my high school and college cross country teams and while in the Army, I was considered the fastest soldier in every unit in which I served. But, like most of us who grew up in the 60′s and beyond, many were taught to run with a heel-toe strike and after over 20 years of running I have suffered though almost every running injury: runner’s knee, shin splints, torn meniscus, heel spurs, and plantar fasciitis, so I figured it was time to try…
