Nutrition for your marathon
Written by: Galina Pembroke
Though bread and water sounds like more of a prisoner's diet than nutrition for endurance, complex carbohydrates and simple fluids are ideal for your marathon best.
WHILE THE UK AND AMERICA support the merits of Atkins, the Czech influence on carbohydrates is far healthier and has the perfect foundation for meeting the needs of an endurance runner. Without the chain-reaction that begins with carbohydrates, all running becomes difficult to impossible.

26 Miles: Part I
As Seen on NewsChannel 5
"I think, though, if you can even think the thought into consideration, that maybe you are ready to run a marathon, because if you're thinking sanely at the time, and you think of running 26.2 miles, you've gotta make a pretty rational decision if you are capable of that or not," says John Lonsdale, running coach with "Foot of the Rockies".
Jeff Stoecker and Julie Wolfe made that insane decision back in January.
"We were just throwing the idea around, just talking about it, and we decided to be crazy enough to do it at some point," says Jeff.

Are you ready to run? Getting ready for the big run requires thorough preparation
By Greg Giesen
As April ends and May arrives, recreational and competitive runners in Racine County realize one thing - the 26th annual Lighthouse Run is just around the corner.
The race, which will take place on June 19, features 4-mile and 10-mile competitive runs and the Modine Fun Run/Walk (participants can choose either the 2- or 4- mile course).
Many runners are already in the middle of their training schedule for the race. But for people who are just starting up or are being drawn back to running because of the nice weather, there is still enough time to get ready for the race.

Adidas unveils 'smart shoe' for runners
By WILLIAM McCALL
PORTLAND, Ore. - Adidas says it has created the world's first ''smart shoe'' by mating it with a computer chip that adapts its cushioning level to a runner's size and stride.
The Adidas 1 is the product of a three-year secret project the German company developed at its U.S. headquarters in Portland, Ore.
On Thursday, Adidas opened its research lab to reporters from around the world for a first peek at a shoe the company claims will revolutionize distance running and training.
''This is the first intelligent shoe ever,'' said Erich Stamminger, global marketing director for Adidas. ''It senses, understands and adapts.''

Even for runners, walking is beneficial
By THERESA DOWELL
Special to the Sun 05/10/2004
Do you want to see a runner cringe? Ask them to "walk" during a training run. They'll wince at the thought of it.
You see, runners believe that anything less than a "running pace" does not qualify them as a runner. I know, I've been guilty of this myself. How unfortunate, because they're missing out on a remarkable training tool; walking breaks. It's true. Adding short walking breaks to a run will help to increase strength and endurance with less injury and fatigue. It can even increase speed.

Take a Hike
or a run or a ride, and enjoy the bounty of beauty
Earth Day is here, and it's as good a time as any to take a breath, look around, go for a hike and realize what we have. We're always near the summit of those "fittest cities" lists for a reason: our plentiful back yard. We've got miles and miles of trails and acres upon acres of parks and wilderness. We've got mountains to climb and lakes, rivers and open water. Over the next five months, every corner of the state will be hosting mountain bikers, trail runners, mountain climbers, hikers, Sunday strollers and outdoors cross-trainers.
