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...

Greenway Trail Marathon
Damascus, MD
This 'close to a marathon and 50-K', trail race will be very different from other club races and marathons. There will be limited aid, no tee shirts, mile markers or finisher's awards. The race is being called 'close to a marathon and 50-K' distance because the course will not be accurately measured and cannot be used as a qualifier for USATF events. Using existing trail maps the marathon course is estimated to be between 26 and 27 miles and the 50-K course is over 31.1 miles. At the very least, both courses are longer than the standard marathon and 50-K distances. Generally, there are new trail detours each year. Participants should be comfortable running on and navigating trails, running independently and able to complete the marathon distance. The course is over 95% single track dirt trails, includes water crossings and depending on the weather on March 1, could be sloppy and/or slippery.For those that want to run the 50K distance, they can elect to do so on race day. However, only those that reach Clopper Lake, about 15 miles into the race, by a predetermined cut off time may do so. These 'faster' runners will run a loop around the lake which will make their run slightly longer than 31.1 miles. Marathon runners will not run a loop around the lake this year.
