Have a Happy, Safe and Healthy New Year!
 
When you are making your New Year' Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race. If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training. Also, help your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2019 will be a great year.
 
 
 
 
OHSAA State Cross Country Championships
 
A heavy rain the week of the States and nearly 15 inches of rain above normal for Central Ohio for the year the Championships was postponed for a week due to an unusable course. With more rain the day before the Championships another new course was created - Perhaps the best course yet for National Trails as the athletes ran in front of the grandstands twice before finishing in front of the grandstands.

As a high school coach my goal is always to have the athletes run the best they can at the end of the season. This year on a soft course 25 of 27 girls and 15 of 17 boys ran their fastest time of the year at our League Championships. At the District Championships all 7 girls ran faster than the week before and 5 ran a life time best. In the boys race 4 of the 7 guys ran faster than they did at the League Championships.

PREVENTING INJURY IN YOUNG RUNNERS
 
PART 1 - Running is one of the safest sports for children. But it takes more than statistics that say running is safe to keep kids from getting injured. In the author’s day, emphasis was on rehabilitating runners post injury. Today, it is on activities and precautions that will keep runners healthy, what we call pre-habilitation, to PREHAB runners to reduce the risk of injury.

On the Run with Matt McGowan
 
Written by Jim Silcott, Reprinted from March 1989
 
Matt McGowan, a 31 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.
