High School Coaches on Youth Running and Burnout

Written by Douglas Finley, Editor Journal of Children's Running
 
By a recent program-by-program count, there are now more than four million children logging miles in elementary school or after-school running programs. (1) Coupling that with the surging number of kids entering recreational Fun Runs and 5K races, there is an expectation that there would be similar growth in the number of kids who would run in high school and beyond. And yes, the number of high school students running cross country is at an all-time high nationally.

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
