As another year ends one can always look back on numerous positive happenings as well as sad ones we experienced. I am sure we all know people who had a challenging 2022 either with a health or work situation. If you know someone having a rough time, maybe you can do something to make their life better.  Also, when you are making your New Year’ Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race. If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training and help your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2023 will be a Great Year!  Also, remember to shop locally to help all the businesses in your home town.

Arnold 5K Pump & Run/Arnold 5K

Be a part of one of the largest multi-sport events in the WORLD - The Arnold Sports Festival as you sign up for the March 5, 2023 Arnold Pump & Run 5K or the run-only Arnold 5K.

https://www.runohio.com/index.php/news-features/news/310-2023-arnold-5k-pump-run-arnold-5k 

Jim Loimier passed away on Thanksgiving Day. He was 96.

Twenty-three years ago, I got a call from Jim Lorimer and he wanted to meet with me and he asked if I would head up a new event for the Arnold Sports Festival – the Arnold 5K Pump & Run.  He had read an article of an event where runners lifted a portion of their weight based on their sex and age and for each successful lift their run time would be reduced (later I found out the event Jim read about only had 23 participants).  Jim and I thought we might get 50 – 100 athletes to try this new event.  After a week we had 150 entrants and we closed entries at 200 to guarantee we could handle the participants successfully.   Years later we would raise the entrants to a 1,000 limit and would sell out in 2-10 days. Tim Pancher oversaw the lifting for the 20 years we worked with Jim on this event for the Arnold Sport Festival.  Jim was a great friend and a champion for athletics.  He will be missed…

The Athlete’s Kitchen - Fretting about Food & Physique?

Many runners feel pressure to have a perfect body, perfect diet, and ideally, perfect races. The stress-inducing trait of perfectionism often pushes runners to not only become stronger and faster, but also leaner and food-phobic.
