SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2003 03:07:28 PM

WASHINGTON: Striving to become a successful entrepreneur? If a new study is to be believed running regularly can help small business owners to stay geared up and learn valuable lessons about how to operate a successful business.

The study showed entrepreneurs who run on a regular basis report more personal satisfaction, independence, and autonomy than those who do other exercise, such as weight lifting, or don't run. And small businesses managed by runners report better sales than those directed by non-runners, according to a report in WebMd.

The spell of humidity that has been cast on the area throughout the summer months.

That, in turn, could spell relief for Delaware's runners as they make their transition from summer's grueling dog days into a competitive - and hopefully more comfortable - fall season.

"It's been a brutal summer," said Dave Farren, director of the Oct. 12 Delaware Distance Classic, a 5K race at Frawley Stadium. "We haven't had a break, and it makes a big difference on your training.

Chico State cross country running shoes are changed almost as frequently as the tires on a racecar -- every three hundred miles.

Seniors Tyler Graff and Vernon Ruiz came to the Chico State cross country program with many goals. In order to accomplish them, both runners felt they needed to do one thing: run 100 miles in a week. Now that they have, it's all downhill from here.

Head cross country coach Gary Towne said he believes runners who achieve this training regiment possess three main qualities: a strong body, natural talent and a willingness to push their limits.

A different direction - Cross country training has become much more rigorous

Eating right for a marathon

Eating right for a marathon

In this second and final article offering advice to marathon runners, JOHN VELZIAN a race director of the 1996 Olympic Marathon in Atlanta, discusses diet and your preparation for the big day.

Diet is a vital consideration in running the marathon, yet I find all too often that maybe our athletes pay no attention to it at all. This is possible since they can get away with it because the basic Kenyan diet contains a great deal of carbohydrates, but there are other important considerations as well.

One of the largest-ever studies of exercise and breast cancer shows that while running and kickboxing may be all the rage, plain old walking gives women the edge against the disease.

Even a brisk, half-hour walk three times a week is enough to lower a woman's breast cancer risk by about 20 per cent, the study found.

The research is the latest to suggest regular physical activity can lower levels of estrogen and other suspected tumour-hastening hormones in women.

THE DIET DETECTIVE: Motivate To Exercise

By Charles Stuart Platkin

I exercise every single morning, without fail -- I'm not even sure how I keep doing it each day, but it's part of my morning routine, just like you brush your teeth, shower, and go to work. With recommendations these days advising 30 - 60 minutes of exercise every day, I'm often asked, "How can I stay motivated?"

Fitness trainers may have to meet new standards


The Courier-Journal

Would-be personal trainers may face a rigorous academic-based workout in the future.

There is a major effort under way to standardize instruction for such fitness jobs.

The American College of Sports Medicine has been granted the authority to define and establish two new allied health occupations.

They are "health and fitness specialist," which would require a bachelor's degree, and "clinical exercise specialist," which would require a master's degree.

This is a runners' paradise


Arithmetically, Marakwet people form the formidable force that has seen Kenya dominate athletics in the international circles.

Talk of a Kenyan winner in any major athletics event in any part of the world and the chance is that this person is a Marakwet from the remote, hilly district found in the North Rift region.

A simple look at the runners who represented Kenya at the August 23 to 31, 19th World Athletics Championships held in Paris would reveal that people from Marakwet district dominated the team. This district, with some parts rising up to 2,800 metres above sea level, enjoys a fair share of world class athletes.
