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...

With Mother Nature, making a brief appearance,by sending a mini-hurricane to remind them we were in Kansas in the spring, , the KUS orginizers recovered quickly and had taken a few more steps down the trail toward the KUS mission. The successful results of KUS' second event brought in a few more members and KUS family continued to grow.

The Olathe Kids Marathon was created to promote health and fitness in children. The marathon program is structured to allow children, kindergarten through sixth grade, to complete a full 26.2 mile marathon at a pace that is fun and safe for their growing bodies one mile at a time. The Greater Kansas City YMCA has developed a training program that will take the Kid's Marathon participant from zero to 26.2 total miles in 16 weeks. The first 25 miles will be, ran or walked in quarter, half or one mile increments, on a safe secure route designated by parents, coaches, mentors or teachers. The final 1.2 miles of the marathon will be completed on race day, Saturday, April 10, 2010. This year's event will be held at the Garmin facility at 151st and Ridgeview Streets with an age/grade wave start beginning at 7:30 AM. The Olathe YMCA is allowing children participating in the marathon and their families to use the YMCA for free on Sundays.While training, mileage tracking will be on the "honor" system and kids will get the most and be prepared for the marathon by tracking their miles honestly. Daily record keeping is a task that kids and parents can chart to monitor progress toward their mileage goals. A PDF version of the training program and tracking chart can be found on the Olathe Marathon's website www.olathemarathon.com under the "Kid's Marathon" button.

The Patriots Run is an annual event held to commemorate the tragic events of September 11th 2001. With this event we remember, not only those victims who were lost, but also those soldiers, police, firefighters and others who served this country both on that day and every day thereafter. In this way we honor all the people who work to insure that this tragedy never repeats itself. In our logo the 2 blue stripes on the left represent the Twin Towers. The 5 red stripes stand for the armed forces, police, fire fighters, emergency personnel and their families. This is a unique event designed by the committee, running community, sponsors and others. It is a 9 hour and 11 minute run/walk that begins at noon. Participants can be either solo or teams. You can join us at noon and stay the entire time or join us at any time during the event. You can run as much as you wish. Some people join us at the start, leave for a while and come back later. The flexibility is there to let you design your own event--anything from a lap or 2 to an ultra run. You can also opt for the certified marathon.
