Weekly Rundown #83

“Victory is purely defined by the results, and success can be defined by an internal measure of what you did against what you felt you had to give.”
Jack Fultz

With Boston this coming Monday I figured what better way to celebrate this great race than by sharing a quote by one of it's winners that many may not know - Jack Fultz

If you do not know much about Jack Fultz here are a couple articles about the winner of the 1976 Boston Marathon in 91F+ temps - Gary Cohen's interview of Jack from June 2010 and a podcast with Jack

For Boston Marathon history you can't do much better than the new Boston: The Documentary but there is also a good video on YouTube called 117 Seconds of Boston Marathon History

A look at the weather for this coming Monday's Marathon

Preview of the Boston Women's race - according to a report Sarah Hall is out with an SI Joint issued

Molly Huddle talks about her first Boston Marathon

If you want to follow someone during the Boston Marathon you can look up the bib number here and follow them via the Mobile App of Online here

As Mario Fraioli says, there is much talk about Boston, as there should be, but do not forget there is another 6 days later on April 22nd - the London Marathon and it could be a great race as well, maybe even better than Boston, with the likes of Kipchoge, Bekele, Wanjiri, Adola and hometown favorite Mo Farah in the men's race.  For the women's race you have Mary Keitany of Kenya and Tirunesh Dibaba of Ethiopia.

If the Boston Marathon seems to tame here are are some more challenging Marathons

This week's Interview Tuesday was with Allen Reynolds

I did not know Magdalena Boulet was running the Marathon des Sables (MDS) in Morocco but she is and took the lead on stage 4, the long stage, with one more stage to go.  Also, here is Ian Corless' review and pictures of Stage 4's This Week in Running: April 9, 2018's The Week That Was in Running: April 2 - 8, 2018

Check out the the new documentary on Amazon called Ouray 100 - tells the story of Avery Collins run at Ouray how he dealt with going off course in the early miles.  I have not seen it yet but it is on my list.  If you have Amazon Prime is is free right now otherwise it is $2.99 to rent the HD version or $1.99 for the SD version.

July 7th in Elizabethtown, KY Running Soles will be hosting the Freeman Lake Summer Trail Challenge.  You can run a 10K or 5k and if really inspired run both

If you live in the South-Central Kentucky area and you are a JV or Varsity distance runner you should look at attending the 3 day KY Elite Distance Running Camp being help July 12-14 in Somerset KY.  This camp is put on by KY 2000 AA State Cross-Country Champion Daniel Roberts who I interviewed at the end of February.  The price for the camp is $50 but it increases after April 15, 2018 at 11:59pm EDT.   You can also get information at the KY Elite Running Facebook page

Masters Running News
It will very interesting to see how Deena Kastor (45) is running Boston for her first marathon since 2015

Tom Bowden, who I posted an interview with a couple weeks ago, ran in the Texas Senior Games and won both the M75 400 in 1:10.56 and the M75 200 in 30.44 Both are world leading times

If you want to keep up with Masters Running, especially Track & Field subscribe to National Masters News.  It is a great red and gives you the ost news I have found on masters running.  Would be nice if there was more road and trail news but maybe that will grow.
