Spring Marathons

on 04 April 2018.

My first marathon was the Glass City Marathon which use to be held on Father's Day. As a freshman at Ohio Northern University I entered with a few of my track teammates. My longest run at the time was 12 miles, but was in shape from cross country and track and finished 20th in 2:51. The following year I ran 2:34ish, then I won on my third try a year later in 2:27:17 and after my senior year I finished second in 2:24:00.

KEEPING TRACK - 3 Books

Written by Rod O'Donnell on 26 March 2018.

One was a World War II veteran who had a tremendous impact on American distance running. Another was a two-time Olympian and the father of a gold medalist in the 1500. The third was one of America’s great track and cross-country performers in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. The lives of Browning Ross, Matt Centrowitz, and Craig Virgin are the subjects of three recently-released books. Despite widely-varied backgrounds, all three men shared a passion for their sport and were drawn to being the best that they could be.

Becoming a Rational Runner

Written by Richard Ferguson, Ph.D. on 26 March 2018.

 

Many runners think too much.  They analyze, ponder and try to make sense out of the world around them. If anything they tend to over-think. In fact almost all humans tend to over-think. Our minds make us human, but at the same time our consciousness can get in the way of allowing ourselves to physically perform like we’re capable of. In other words, we may actually think ourselves into running below our real capability. Too often we cognitively distort things and think in very irrational ways. It’s this irrational thinking that may limit our performance, as well as limit our enjoyment of running.  Let’s look at some common irrational thinking patterns often seen in runners.

Runners’ Club of Greater Cincinnati

on 22 March 2018.

Runners’ Club of Greater Cincinnati did not get off to an auspicious start.

The forerunner of the current club, Clifton Track Club,  began with a few diehards in mid-1976 when a notice was placed in the window of the Clifton Town Meeting Hall  Building in Cincinnati seeking partners for one to three mile runs. In November 1976, the Clifton Track Club and Joggers Association -- no shame back then in being called a “jogger” -- was officially formed with about 40 members.
