On The Run with Matt McGowan
 
On The Run with Matt McGowan from mid 2018 March - mid May print RUNOHIO
RUNOHIO was introduced at the 1988 Columbus Marathon Expo and was first printed March 1989. My brother, Jeff and my mom, Jean, assisted with the start of the publication.

March 1988 On The Run with Matt McGowan

Matt McGowan, a 32 year old full time business teacher/department chairman and coach at Bishop Watterson High School in Columbus has had a lifelong interest in running. Matt first got involved with running in grade school in Wheeling, Illinois. In junior high, Matt ran the dashes. However, after his oldest brother, Bill, broke the Circleville High School 880 yard run record, Matt was moved up to that event. Matt's interest in running continued to develop while in high school.

March 1988 Coordinator Comments by Matt McGowan

I would like to welcome you to RUNOHIO. For the past few years through my running contacts, I have heard many runners comment that they wish there was a more complete running publication - one which would cover the whole state. I even have had people tell me they wish there were something such as Craig Harms' Miami Marathon Newsletter from the mid 70's.

KEEPING TRACK

by Rod O'Donnell
 
 
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.
Becoming a Rational Runner

 
by Richard Ferguson,
 
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.

Runners' Club of Greater Cincinnati
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.
Spring Marathon

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.
 
The 42nd running of the Toledo Marathon will be held on April 22nd - http://glasscitymarathon.org
 
I will not be able to make the race, but good luck to everyone running. Matt McGowan
