The Science of Fueling for Performance

Written by Nancy Clark MS,RD,CSSD on 13 March 2017.

Get Running with the Ohio River Road Runner’s Club

on 04 March 2017.

In the Dayton area lies an amazing running treasure: the Ohio River Road Runner’s Club, or ORRRC.  The club, founded in 1966, has dedicated itself to promoting and supporting running in the local community..  The ORRRC provides 42 races and 3 running parties every year, all for free to its membership (available for a small $25 yearly membership fee), and for $2-$9 for non-members depending on their age.  The races range from the challenging hills of Germantown Metropark in January and September and The Narrows (Beavercreek in November) to the flat and fast Vandalia 5k in May and Fall Festival 15k (Spring Valley in November) to the scenic Stillwater 7-miler (Covington in August).  Several of the races even have themes or unique race formats, like the WingMan 10k (in Beavercreek every July) which honors fallen service members and employs a staggered/”handicapped” start based on age/sex to give everyone an equal chance of winning the race for their assigned team.

2017 Spring Shoe Review

on 14 February 2017.

“The times they are a changin’,” wrote Bob Dylan more than 50 years ago, and that has certainly been the case in the running shoe industry over the past season. Emerging brands have seen some successes, there have been many new shoe launches (as with the most active past seasons, about 35% of this spring’s offerings are new), and changes in materials and construction methods have left their mark on the industry.

KEEPING TRACK

Written by Rod O'Donnell on 25 January 2017.

According to the National Governing Body for High School Sports (NFHS), participation in track and cross-country continues to show tremendous growth; ironically, less attention is given to them by the main stream media. Websites such as Flo-Track, Let’s Run, and MileSplit are outstanding, but they are largely unknown to the general public.  If we want our sports to continue to grow and capture more attention in the sports world, we need to regain the press coverage that was the norm at one time.
