Heard Around The Lake: News, Notes and Idle Gossip (Nov. 7, 2013)

CADENZAMany, many years ago, I lived in San Diego and trained with a great team of road runners called the Jamul Toads. A bunch of young Toads—guys like Thom Hunt, Terry Cotton, Kirk Pfeffer, Ed Mendoza and Chuck Hattersley—were national-class heroes to me and I learned a bunch from running in their wake. We met every week in a park for speed work and about the same time, there was another group of older guys, who must have been in their 40s, working out at the same time. These old, bald guys seemed well beyond ancient to us 20-somethings and for the life of us, we couldn’t understand why they would even bother running at that advanced age. (We were idiots; what can I say?)

Later, I found out why these older guys were still running. They were all part of a long-range study being conducted by researchers at San Diego State who were among the first scientists looking at whether running and exercise could have a significant role in extending the life span of heretofore sedentary people.

These older runners, who were part of the study, formed the nucleus of the 40-Plus running movement started by such pioneers as David Pain, who began organizing what he called “masters miles” at various local meets in the mid-60s. He set an arbitrary age of 40 as what constituted a masters. Pain, a lawyer, and other San Diego Track Club runners such as Jim O’Neil, Bill Gookin and Shirley Matson made mature runners a permanent part of the Southern California running fabric and showed that you could be old–and still fast.

They also reinforced the notion that running could add years to your life. (Pain is now 91.) Since those early studies, there have been numerous other studies that confirmed the same thing, including several by the 50-Plus Running Club at Stanford.

The latest to show the relationship between running and aging actually puts some numbers with it. An ongoing study of residents of Copenhagen, Denmark who engaged in small amounts of easy running (1-2 ½ hours per week) increased the life expectancy of the subjects by 6.2 years for men and 5.6 years for women, compared to more sedentary residents of Copenhagen.

The study involved 20,000 Danes who were between the ages of 20 and 93 in 1976 when the study began. Said Peter Schnor, the chief cardiologist at the Copenhagen City Heart Study: “Mortality is lower in people reporting moderate jogging, than in non-joggers or those undertaking extreme levels of exercise.”

Not sure what he means by the last part of that statement, but if you need any reason to continue running into your Golden Years, here’s additional proof that you’ll live a better, longer life if you continue to run.

O UT’s Marielle Hall made history last weekend at the Big 12 Cross Country Champs in Waco. Hall, a senior from Haddonfield, New Jersey, won the 6000-meter race in a PR of 19:38 to become the first Longhorn to ever win a men’s or women’s individual title at the Big 12s. Hard to believe she’s just the first. Unfortunately, Hall couldn’t pull the rest of her teammates along to better than a fourth-place finish (121 points) which was well behind Iowa State’s 35, West Virginia (104) and Oklahoma State (116). The UT guys did a little better, finishing third in the Big 12. Ryan Dohner was fourth in 22:57, Craig Lutz was sixth in 23:13 in the 8000-meter race won by Texas Tech’s Kennedy Kithuka in 22:16. Oklahoma State won its straight Big 12 title. The UT men and women return to Waco on November 15th (10 a.m.) for the South Central Regionals.

O Meanwhile, at the Pac-12s Champs in Colorado, Cedar Park’s Parker Stinson finished sixth for the Oregon Ducks in 24:56 (last year he was fourth). Stinson, who has one more season of track eligibility, might redshirt in the spring. Stinson’s girlfriend—Ashley Maton, who ran at Westlake for two years—was 72nd in the women’s division in 24:07.

O One of Ashley’s younger brothers—Matthew–continues to show he might be the best runner in the family (both of his parents were NCAA champs) and one of the best young runners in the country. Maton, a junior at Summit HS in Bend, won the Oregon State 5A champs last weekend in 14:59, the third fastest time ever on the Lane CC course in Eugene. Maton, who was more than a minute ahead of second place in the state meet, ran 14:32 a month earlier in Portland to win a Northwest regional meet. Last May, Maton won two state track championships and set a state record in each race.

O Former UT star Laleh Mojtabaeezamanai finished second in the Dallas Running Club Half Marathon last weekend. Laleh, a teacher in Keller, ran 1:18:55 to finish second woman and 15th overall. Hannah Steffen of Austin was the sixth woman in 1:23:47. Jessica Gonzales of Austin was seventh in 1:28:04 and Kelly Patel—close friend of Texas Running Post—was 12th in 1:29:49.

O Richard Powell of San Marcos won the Wurst Fest 5-Miler last Saturday down in New Braunfels. Powell ran 25:40 to easily beat Jake Perez (29:07) and Paul Frost (29:08). Frost was also the first masters. Dana Mecke won the women’s division in 30:16 (seventh overall) with Andrea Duke in second (32:07) and Austinite Sarah Mark in third (32:20).

O One-time Austinite Scott MacPherson continued his terrific fall streak. ScottyMac, who PR’ed in the Twin Cities Marathon in 2:16:02 in October, finished third in the Indianapolis Monumental Half Marathon last weekend in 1:04:28 to pick up $1300.

O San Antonio’s Liza and Ariel Galvan had terrific races at last weekend’s St. Louis Half Marathon. Ariel, 48, was first masters runner (and seventh overall) in 1:16:40, while Liza, 44, was the first woman (and ninth overall) in 1:18:31. Both Galvans are planning to run the San Antonio Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon next weekend.

O BTW, if you’re headed down to San Antonio next weekend for the Rock ‘n’ Roll races, the starting line for the marathon and half has switched to Cherry Street and Market which is adjacent to the Alamodome where the race finishes. Be prepared for a walk to the new start.

O Last weekend at the Florida IM in Panama City, Austin’s ex pat from South Africa Natasha Van Der Merwe finished 17th woman in 9:29.

O Best event of the weekend is Saturday morning at Settlers Park in Round Rock where the UIL’s state cross-country meet will be contested. Rouse HS’s Madison Boreman, a familiar figure in area road races since she was 9 years old, is only a sophomore but will attempt to defend her 4A title.

O Mr. Former Yellow Jersey showed up at a Halloween Party at Jack & Adam’s and also found time to give an extensive interview to Cycling News. When Armstrong was asked whether he was sorry he got caught or sorry for what he did, replied: “Maybe both. It was a perfect storm at the time back then. You had things going on that were incredibly beneficial and if you didn’t make that decision {to dope} you went home. Now the debate will be how many people went home. I don’t know. Everyone I knew stayed….It was an unfortunate set of circumstances that all of us were put into.” When Armstrong was asked, “What now makes you trust someone?” He replied: “I don’t trust anybody.” If you want to read the entire interview, go to www.cyclingnews.com.

O What I’m listening to this morning: “Holland,” an obscure (but great) 1973 album by the Beach Boys. Unlike most Beach Boys albums that were written by Brian Wilson, this was a Carl Wilson production.
