On The Run with Matt McGowan
RUNOHIO was introduced at the 1988 Columbus Marathon and was first printed March 1989. My brother, Jeff and my mom, Jean McGowan, assisted with the start of the publication. RUNOHIO’s goal when we started was to provide timely running information with the most compete race calendar, results and running news around the state of Ohio. We cover races in and around Ohio, the Ohio High School Cross Country & Track State Championships. Plus, we cover the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials and the Track and Field U.S. Olympic Trials and National Championships. A number of ups and downs have occurred since we started RUNOHIO, but this issue starts our 29th year serving the running community.

Cold Weather Running Tips from the Road Runners Club of America
•Always follow the RRCA General Safety Guidelines
•Leave the headphones at home. Your ears may help you avoid dangers your eyes cannot see. Wet, wintery conditions may weaken tree limbs causing them to fall. Hearing the crack before the fall may be the difference between avoiding a falling branch or being tackled by a dead limb.
