Apr 19 - Just ran the Double Chubb 25K near St Louis - pretty tough trail race course. Finished 2nd overall and 1st Grand Master. Also, set a new course record for the Grand Masters division. I ran 2:06:16 and the old course record was 2:17:05, so I carved over 10 minutes off it. Well run race by the St Louis Ultra Runners group - felt good racing and lots of fun." - Dan Kuhlman
Hey runLawrence members, send us your success stories or any interesting running experiences. We like to hear from all members.
Congrats to these top finishers from around the Lawrence area at today's Garmin Marathon (and Half Marathon and 10K) in Olathe.
If you're planning to see the Kansas Relays, it's today and only today.
With severe weather anticipated to hit the Lawrence area throughout the day Saturday, Kansas Relays meet officials have elected to adjust the weekend schedule of events in hopes of avoiding delays or cancellations. Events originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday will now be combined into Friday only. There will no longer be any events held on Saturday.
Doesn't appear to be anyone locally doing Boston AND the Big Sur Marathon. We have four locals going to Big Sur on Apr 26.
KC Film Fest: The Barkley Marathons (Apr 16 & 19):
Every year 40 runners come from around the world to a small town in Tennessee to test their limits at a cult-like, quirky, and virtually impossible trail race. With a secret application process, unknown start time, and a course that changes every year, The Barkley Marathons has only had 10 people finish in 25 years. Inspired by a historic prison escape gone awry, what follows is an oddly inspiring story where pain has value, failure is spectacular. . . Tickets

Thunder, lightning and rain greeted Brew to Brew participants this year in Kansas City. Overcast skies for most of the day, but for a brief moment there was blue sky, as shown here at the crossroad by the Milleret Farm. more photos | results

runLawrence president, Bill Kinnersley, likes to attend many of the smaller races in the region and initially had shared his thoughts on what happened with club officers. . He shares his observations in "Three Things about Racing."
Suburban Kansas City, early morning clear and cold,
A troupe of cars approaches as the sunrise turns to gold.
They come from all directions and in front of us converge.
They slowly fill the parking lot and passengers emerge.
Three things you can count on: that the sun will always rise,
That someone else is faster, and your shoes will come untied...
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Sound rises like a cliff wall — drums, trombones, trumpets, the ubiquitous vuvuzela, the odd French horn and 10,000 fans screaming.
On the blue track below, 15-year-old boys have shot out of the blocks for the 400 meters, postures erect, arms slicing through the tropical air like knives. Faster, faster, they curl around the track as if astride that wave of sound.
This is the high school competition known as Champs. . . more

The Run for Life 10 Mile was back having been canceled in 2014. Results out in the next few days. In the mean time, here are some photos.
Experienced older runners who switch to barefoot running may not adjust as naturally to the process as younger runners do, a new study suggests, which could increase their risk of sustaining an injury while running without shoes. . .
“What we would expect is that over time, running barefoot while persisting with a heel strike would contribute to an increased, not a decreased, risk of injures,” says Dr. Scott Mullen, an orthopedic surgeon at the University of Kansas Sports Medicine and Performance Center and lead author of the new study and the study of young runners. more
Note: some runLawrence members were subjects for this study.
Also, be sure to read the comments.

Great Britain has one of the world's strongest—and oldest—traditions of mountain running, or fell running, as the sport is called in that country. In this video from Salomon TV, Rickey Gates, a contributing editor with Trail Runner,heads to the epicenter of English fell running, the Lake District. There, he runs with some of Great Britain's top runners and talks to legends of the fells like Joss Naylor, Billy Bland and Kenny Stuart.
