Pre-Race Sleep

Written by Richard Ferguson Ph.D on 25 November 2016.

 

It’s the night before the important race you’ve trained months for. You’re excited, nervous and apprehensive, all at the same time. Bed time; get that much needed rest for the big day tomorrow. You lay there, you toss, you turn, your heart races, you’re just ready to race, but you need and want to sleep, but you can’t. It’s a scenario that I would venture to guess all runners have experienced at some point in time.  The bad sleep scenario can even occur for several nights before a highly anticipated race. Currently, there is great interest among researchers concerning sleep and athletic performance and, without question; proper sleep is needed for peak performance. So just how can you remedy the poor sleep predicament before a race?

Three Brothers and the Turkey Trot

Written by Joe McGowan on 22 November 2016.

Way back in 1967, three brothers ran in their first organized race called, “The Turkey Trot.” Our father and mother who raised all three of us in the United States Navy, had just moved to a community outside of Chicago. We had just left Catholic School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as our father had been transferred yet again. That is how Navy brats are made – we moved every two to three years and had to make our mark on a new community. Our mother wanted some peace and quiet when getting ready for our family Thanksgiving meal. Our mom, an avid reader, had heard about a race that we all could participate in and she asked our father to take us. She figured this would be a good way to get out of her hair while she cooked us all a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal.
