Examining the tales of tapering
By Zak Brown
September 18, 2007
Just a few weeks before the 1950 European Track Championships, Cech great Emil Zatopek came down with a case of food poisoning. It seemed he had eaten some bad goose at dinner.
The food poisoning was so bad it forced Zatopek into the hospital, where he was bed-ridden for several days leading up to the Europeans and unable to run.

By TARA CUSLIDGE
Four really cool ways to play, despite the lingering Dallas heat
Fall officially begins Sunday, but that doesn't mean the North Texas heat is gone. Exercise is almost unbearable, sometimes unsafe, during the peak heat of the day.
Even the most hard-core workout buff is tempted to venture into an air-conditioned gym. And that's a good idea. But don't throw in the towel and think that exercise is off-limits until the weather gets milder.
Here are alternatives guaranteed to make you break a sweat while keeping cool.

Your body will tell you when to quit
September 18, 2007
A disappointed runner recently wrote to this column about dropping out of his first marathon at mile 14. Jon believed he had trained properly, following an online beginning-marathon program, without too much difficulty. However, he developed knee pain early in the race that got worse with each passing mile.
How does a runner decide when to abandon ship or when to push through and finish a race? Each situation should be decided on its own merit, possibly employing the opinion of a physician, coach, trainer or other running expert. If you are on your own to make the decision, you must be strong enough to employ the running adage, "listen to your body."

A 5k race is a great way to get in shape
September 17, 2007
Running can be an intimidating sport for some. I have heard on more than one occasion, "I just can't run." I will agree, for some people, running is just not a viable or enjoyable option. However, for many, running can become a whole new way of life, an adventure, or a way to feel strong and self-assured. Running also provides many physical and psychological benefits. Running improves your cardiovascular health and muscle tone, helps with weight loss, and can improve mood. Training for a 5k, a 3.1 mile run/walk, is a great way to get your training into gear. Having a goal to work towards will help you find the focus and motivation for getting your workouts in. The end result will be a fitter and lighter you.

Fitness tips: Exercise every day, eat right
By David Quick
September 13, 2007
A running buddy of mine asked me to speak at a local Rotary Club meeting last week.
He left the subject wide open to me, but relayed that he described me as a "fitness expert," which I am NOT. I don't have a degree or certification. However, I have written stories and columns on fitness, nutrition and outdoor lifestyle issues for a half-dozen years and am passionate about the subjects.
