Picking Tunes for Your Run

Picking Tunes for Your Run
Running is a stunning example of physics and more specifically, momentum. Interestingly enough, progress in both running and life is determined by your management of potential and kinetic energy in order to maximize the benefits of momentum. Look up "momentum" in your favorite dictionary for a wonderful disruption to your day; it is truly fascinating stuff when put into context of a runner and the human body. However, disrupting a runner's momentum generally yields results that can be very unpleasant.  

Converting one's potential into kinetic energy should not be disrupted by the ill-kept promises of technology. Although gadgets have promised more of this momentum, it is all too easy to focus on the technology instead of the core activity of running. The latest running technology--such as Apple's iPod Shuffle and Adidas/Sennheiser running headphones--have made the integration of tech easier than ever before. Even so, the disruption caused by flailing cables or tumbling earbuds disrupts focus and results in lost momentum. Fear not my fellow odometers...I will share with you some battle-tested, top-secret, G14 classified tips for mastering running technology; you have the ability to eliminate disruption and make your run as fun or focused as you desire.

Lets start with apparel and the old mantra that less is more. For many, the appeal of running is its minimalist roots. Along with swimming and wrestling, it is the simplest sport known to man. As you add shoes, braces, visors, wristbands, iPods, fanny-packs, pedometers, heart-rate monitors, headphones and sunglasses, you increase your resistance significantly. Some of this gear is required and that is OK but for most, consolidation works wonders for improving stride, focus and efficiency. Keep a gym-bag or milk-crate in your car trunk with items that are not essential to every run, but may be essential to a particular run. This lets you keep what you need near you at all times instead of on you. As your performance increases, the need for gizmos will wane and the fine tuned machine you are driving starts to work on its own clock. Seasoned runners know their pace without a glance at the watch or distance and you can get there too.

Once you have consolidated your gadget collection to what you need it is time to increase efficiency with your bio-mechanics. While your stride is as unique to you as your fingerprint, your gear, no matter how generic, should work with your form- not against it. Shoes with a spider-web of laces contribute to drag and present a hurdle at every step. Use shorter laces and double-knot to reduce free-hanging laces from flopping.

Many athletes, pro and amateur, run to stay in good shape. If you run, wear running-specific shorts. Period. The reduction in fabric and seam alignment make a world of difference. Basketball shorts or even mid-length trunks add resistance to every stride no matter how bad you want to hide your s...

Grandma's Marathon
June
Duluth, MN

http://www.grandmasmarathon.com
Grandma's Marathon was created in 1977 when a local running club called the North Shore Striders partnered with Grandma's Restaurant to plan and host a marathon along Highway 61-one of the most scenic courses in the world. What started as a small road race consisting of 150 runners has grown to be the 13th largest marathon in the United States.When Grandma's Marathon became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1987, the 17-member board of directors, Executive Director, Scott Keenan, and staff of Grandma's Marathon, adopted the philosophy of reaching for the stars and never being satisfied with the status quo. This led to the addition of the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon in 1991 and the William A. Irvin 5K in 1997. Today, Grandma's Marathon weekend is one of the largest multi-race festivals in the nation. In fact, the 2010 races drew nearly 16,000 participants from all 50 states and 41 different countries, 50,000 race fans from across the globe, and 5,000 volunteers from the Twin Ports and surrounding areas.
Lake Wobegon Trail Marathon
May
St. Joseph, MN

http://www.lakewobegontrailmarathon.org
The course is flat, fast, and picturesque. Many people feel that the trail from Holdingford to St. Joseph is the prettiest portion of the Lake Wobegon Trail. The trail is primarily rural except as it passes through the four small towns along the route. In a post on the"A Prairie Home Companion" website, Garrison Keillor said this about the Lake Wobegon Trail:"I've biked the bike trail-and love the ordinary beauty of farmland and meadow and the towns along it." The course is certified (USATF #MN-08042-RR).The Lake Wobegon Trail is a 10 foot wide asphalt bike trail on a former railroad track. The trail is smooth and has no cant. There is very little elevation change at any time along the entire length of the course. You cannot get lost on this course. Runners join the trail after one mile and then simply follow the trail to the finish. There is only one turn on the entire trail where the trail ‘T's' at about 11 ? miles and runners go left at the ‘T'.

The Marathon is a point-to-point run, starting at the Cramer Road (Cook County Road 1) trailhead on the Superior Hiking Trail, and finishing near Caribou Highlands Lodge in Lutsen. The Marathon course will include a short loop in the early part of the race in order to be full marathon distance. Runners will have access to three aid stations between the start and finish, and will never go more than 8 miles without an opportunity for aid. The Superior Hiking Trail Association (SHTA) publishes a wonderful series of trail maps, complete with descriptions, that cover in detail the sections of trail on which the Marathon will be run. The SHTA also publishes a comprehensive, almost 200-page, Guide to the Superior Hiking Trail. View the maps for this part of the course through the following links:

Team Ortho Donation Campaign Helps Increase Polar Dash Contribution E-mailDonation Checks to Shriners HospitalOn January 1st, 2010, our beneficiary, Shriners Hospital for Children in Minneapolis, was the location for our winter race the Polar Dash 5K and 10K. The hospital was also the recipient of our donation during this race. Team Ortho Foundation was happy to donate $10,000 to Shriners. But above and beyond that, the organization received an additional $2,300 thanks to our Facebook friends. "We held a contest on Facebook during part of December. Team Ortho Foundation donated $5.00 for each new joiner to our Team Ortho Facebook Group until December 28th, it was a huge success," John Larson, executive director for Team Ortho Foundation said.In fact, one person was so moved by the Facebook campaign she offered to match the $5.00 per person donation for the final two day push, which helped bring the number to $2,300. Thank you to all of the people who participate in Team Ortho races and to the anonymous donor for her generosity. With your help all of this is possible!

Welcome to the 29th annual Minnesota Voyageur Trail Ultra! The start, finish, and all race day festivities will be at the Carlton High School. Weather for Voyageur can be extreme. We've had several years when it was hot and humid, including 2003 when it was brutally hot with 90% humidity. Runners spent a lot of time lounging in the creeks along the Grand Portage and Gill Creek trails. 2001 was cool in the mid-50's and wet. Last year we had great conditions with a late race thunderstorm. You must plan for everything except snow, (at least not so far!!).
