KEEPING TRACK
by Rod O'Donnell
 
Long before the season begins, coaches set goals for their teams and athletes. Two important parts of the individual collaboration are: 1) Are the goals realistic? 2) Is the athlete willing to do what is necessary to attain them?

The Runner's Kitchen: Five Reasons Why Runners Want to Eat Carbohydrates
by Nancy Clark

As the New Year starts, I hear way too many runners vowing to "knock off carbs" for their nutrition resolution. Most intend to eat less sugar (OK). Some plan to cut out bread, pasta, potato and starchy foods (not OK), and others plan to also limit fruits and veggies (bad idea). The reality is, carbs should be the foundation of your sports diet.
Cold Weather Running
With the recent cold weather - remember to make sure your run is a safe one.. Check out the Road Runner Club of American Cold Weather Running Tips.
Athletes Kitchen - The Runner's Kitchen: Waste Not, Want Not
In 32 years (2050), we will be dealing with major food issues. By then, the global population will have grown from today’s 7.6 billion people to 10 billion people (not due to lots of new babies, due mainly to longer life spans related to better health care and nutrition).
Youngstown Road Runners Club
The Youngstown Road Runners Club was founded in the spring of 1975 and held weekly races at a cost of 50 cents per runner. The club soon joined up with Road Runners Clubs of America. Membership was $5 per individual and approximately 1100 joined.
