Geoffrey Kirui wins 121rst Boston Marathon

Written by Dave Hunter, RunBlogRun.com on 17 April 2017.

However, if you run the course smart, you learn how to relax on the downhills and build on the uphills, so that your quadriceps are still working at 21 miles. If you get to 21 miles and your legs have not gone on strike, you could run a fine time.

On The Run with Matt McGowan

Written by Matt McGowan on 13 March 2017.

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.
