Spring
Spring is just around the corner and hopefully we will have some great weather for training and racing.  Spring is also the start of one of the oldest sport know to mankind – track and field. Track and field is one of the most diverse sports as there are 17 different events for high school athletes and 20 for collegiate athletes to challenge themselves. According to The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) girl’s track and field is the largest participatory sport for high school girls and boy’s track & field is the second largest participatory sport for boys.

The Runner's Kitchen: Five Reasons Why Runners Want to Eat Carbohydrates
by Nancy Clark
 
As the New Year starts, I hear way too many runners vowing to "knock off carbs" for their nutrition resolution. Most intend to eat less sugar (OK). Some plan to cut out bread, pasta, potato and starchy foods (not OK), and others plan to also limit fruits and veggies (bad idea). The reality is, carbs should be the foundation of your sports diet.
 
Cold Weather Running
With the recent cold weather - remember to make sure your run is a safe one.. Check out the Road Runner Club of American Cold Weather Running Tips.
 
Athletes Kitchen - The Runner's Kitchen: Waste Not, Want Not
In 32 years (2050), we will be dealing with major food issues. By then, the global population will have grown from today’s 7.6 billion people to 10 billion people (not due to lots of new babies, due mainly to longer life spans related to better health care and nutrition).
