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...

Tallahassee Marathon

The first Apalachicola Forest Marathon was run off Silver Lake Road. To this day it was my fastest of six Forest runs. The next year it was moved to another location in the forest south of town. When I finished that race it was 92 degrees and for the first time I was getting chills during the last 10K. I'm sure I was dehydrated and I should have stopped, but I didn't. That was it for the directors. They moved the race to a cooler month and chose to pound the pavement of Killearn. I lobbied hard to keep the race in the woods but lost. I actually ran in the first Killearn marathon. I borrowed a pair of Sears sneakers from a girl with big feet and took off in the rain with the other runners. By 19 miles the blue dye from the shoes had bled into my soggy socks and I was leaving blue tracks down the road. Those shoes and socks must have weighed five pounds each. The blisters and blood finally took their toll and I registered my only career DNF.The following year I was determined to return to the forest run I so loved. As an added twist I would run alone, at night, under a bright full moon. Carmen (his wife) met me at various points with orange slices, water and encouragement. At about 17 miles a deer ran out of the woods in my direction. In our mutual surprise, we ended up running down the road nearly side-by-side for fifty yards or so. For just a moment, the deer looked over his left shoulder and seemed to have a fearless curiosity about his new running partner. It was a great experience. As my award for winning the Forest Marathon I took a pine seedling and planted it in my yard.
