WE GIVE YOU SOMETHING GOOD TO READ
Hey 2004, hello!
What a great year this is going to be. Really. You are not going to be richer, thinner, or better looking than you where last year - but still it is going to be the most fabulous year. Ever. No reason, we are just trying to spread the positive thinking of the new year and all its possibilities, because you know by February your new running partner will probably dump you, more of your hair will fall out, and your next holiday bonus is almost a year away. But anyway, yahoo 2004!
The first news of the this fabulous new year is that we have changed the look of this newsletter. Why? Because the new e-publication "ePodismo" is being launched, and what the Italians design, we all follow. Actually, "ePodismo" is produced by Run The Planet Italia, a Run The Planet satellite, and is the most complete Italian calendar of events available offered by subscription. If you travel often to Italy, or live there now, subscribe to "ePodismo" and find out where to run every month. So this new look to our newsletter is to match the look of "ePodismo". Harmony. This new year is all about harmony.
Is it too cold to run where you are? That probably means that you are out of shape, so why not get into a bathing suit? That's right. Make running in water your new thing. We all know the benefits of any exercise in water, so you can imagine what a great workout running in water can be. Read more about the topic in Dr. Planet's Running in water. Since it is the new year, you might even think you are going to do it every week, and that is why this new year is all about unrealistic intentions. All right, let's change it. This new year is all about trying something new.
As long as you are making your "to do" list for the new year, why not add yoga to it? The fact is, practicing yoga is guaranteed to make your body feel better. We all know it, and that is why most of us don't do it. Listen to Dr. Planet's Yoga for runners and just consider doing something good for your body. Just think of it as: rather than paying for a massage every week, you can practice free yoga and you will not only be richer but also better looking. This year is all about taking care of yourself.
Did you know that long distance walking was a popular spectator sport in the 18th and 19th centuries with huge crowds willing to pay entrance fees to watch walking events? If you did, then you surely have heard of Captain Barclay, the Celebrated Pedestrian. Read about Captain Barclay in The Celebrated Pedestrian article now available on the Running Through History webpage. Captain Barclay is certainly someone to be remembered. This new year is all about making a difference.
There are so many more new items to tell you about on Run The Planet this month, Burundi and Burkina Faso, two African countries, have been added to the website (which means we are closer than ever to offering a running course description in every country of the world!) Phil the Frog's notebook has details of his most recent trip to South Africa, Tell the Planet has an interesting article by Gianluca Ratta who walked over 18,000 kilometers with his dog, 511 days, and shared their adventures with school children along the way. But we will let you read about all that on your own as you browse the Run The Planet website. No need to load you down with all the information here. This new year is all about keeping it simple.
Do you need a solution to keeping all of your new years promises? Well, if you vowed to spend more time with the family and get more exercise why not combine the two? You need a Dreamer Design running stroller. Just load your wife and your first born in a twin stroller and off you go. Oh we know, we were just kidding. Some of you will have to load your husbands instead. We choose Dreamer Design to be the sponsor of this newsletter because of the great design of the product and their dedication to providing quality. Plus, if you have a baby you can send your single neighbor out running with the stroller to pick up chicks. Nothing wrong with that, that is free babysitting. This new year is all about the jogging stroller. Wait, it is all about family and exercise. Better yet, this new year is all about you.
That is it. Let's recap. This new year is all about harmony, trying something new, taking care of yourself, making a difference, keeping it simple, and most importantly it is all about you. That sounds about right. Such high hopes for the new year, but who knows, if you concentrate on these things maybe by the end of the year you will find yourself richer, thinner, and better looking.
Have a great year and thank you for being part of Run The Planet.

Happy New Year. And what I year this is going to be.
The year starts off in Phoenix at the "P.F. Chang's Rock and Roll Arizona", then it's off to Las Vegas for the "Las Vegas Marathon" pasta parties. After all those years as a musician, looks like I'm finally going to "play Vegas".
If you haven't already signed up for the 2004 "Indy Mini Half Marathon", I'm afraid it's too late. Believe it or not they sold out at 25,000, added another 5,000, and have now sold out at 30,000. There are still a few slots available if you do the virtual training with Chicago Endurance Sports. If you have signed up, please join me for the 5K training run in Indianapolis on February 7.
The most exciting thing for February is the release of "Marathon Running for Mortals" in the U.K. Jenny and I will be traveling to London for the kick off. You'll notice that they changed the name of the book... and they "translated" it into English. I'm not kidding!!
And for those of you stuck in winter, like I am, make your plans right now to join me at Jeff Galloway's weekend camp in Florida on March 26-27.
And don't forget the Runner's Cruise in Alaska this June.
What a year this is going to be. I hope to see you all somewhere on the roads.
Waddle on, friends...
WHERE TO RUN IN THE WORLD
Description of the month - Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso)
By J. M. Francillon - In February I went in Ouagadougou for my job. My hotel was in Avenue N’Kruma, in the center of the town. Very soon in the morning before the heat and the traffic, I went running along the streets. Ouagadougou is a city of more than a million of persons, with many small clay houses. I tried to stay on the main streets, the ones with asphalt, between the airport area and the bank of the lake. On an another side of the town, there is also the Bangr-Weoogo park, with lanes across a preserved forest.

RUN THE PLANET MAIL
While you were running did you ever have a question? Did you ever have an opinion about something and ask yourself "Is it just me?"? Did you ever come up with a great idea and wonder if you could just tell everyone the world would be a better place? Did you ever have a revelation and want to share it with others? Well now is your chance to address any one of these question, and basically anything else you come up with while you are running. To hear an opinion, or run an idea past someone. Visit the "Rtp Mail" webpage to receive an answer to your running related questions or to read an opinion about your running thoughts. Here are the last three question asked:
•How important having a running strategy really is? - Now that the Fall marathon season is coming to an end, I am hearing a lot about race strategies. Some of this talk is from elite runners who talk about "drafting" and the strategic advantages of "negative splits", but I am wondering how important having a strategy really is when it comes to racing? Isn't the only useful strategy to run faster than everyone else? - Strategic Overload
•At what point can I consider myself a true runner? - I have only been running for a short time, a few miles every other day. I enjoy my time on the road, and am looking forward to my first 5 kilometers road race in a few weeks. To date, I don't feel much like a "runner", rather I feel like a novice in this sport, or perhaps merely a casual jogger. At what point can I consider myself a true "runner"? - Jog-ner or Run-ger?
•What are the new techno-gadgets for runners? - Every year a set of new technologies and technological gadgets go to market with the promise of helping runners perform better and limit running related injuries. Some of these new technologies seem like good ideas, but many of them become outdated quickly and fade away. What new products have come out that I may not have seen? - Techless in Techtown
RUN THE PLANET LIBRARY
Finally, a book on running that active parents can read to their kids (or to grandchildren, or to nieces and nephews). Penny, a six years old girl, is on her way to show-and-tell in school on Monday morning, the morning after her mom’s first marathon. The moment she wakes up, she puts on her mom's finisher's medal, and it stays on all day. She goes to school and tells her classmates all about the marathon: how far it is, and all the many ways in which Penny helped her mom train for this magnificent achievement. We see Penny's immense pride at her mom's accomplishment, and also Penny's sense that she (Penny) made it all possible. Penny makes pancakes after mom's long runs (with batter all over the kitchen). She orchestrates a little speed workout on the beach. She rides her bike alongside as her mom runs through the streets of the neighborhood. She hoses her mom down after a hot summer run. She teaches (slightly less limber) mom all about stretching. She gives mom backrubs (bouncing on her back on the couch). And much more. The plucky, puckish Penny is ultimately inspired to emulate mom, and the final page shows them together in a 1 mile fun run. Parents and kids alike will enjoy reading and re-reading (and re-reading) this story. "See Mom Run" celebrates running, glorifying the notion that a little sweat and dedication can bring you to a place of remarkable happiness and strength. (Plus, you get that medal!). It points the way forward in life for happy, healthy, active kids. - Click on the cover to order this book at a special price
If you are the type of person who starts your marathon training by pulling out an atlas and then calling your travel agent, then this video is a must for you. Covering thirty-four events on six continents (only Antarctica is missing), after watching this video you will be reaching for your passport to see if it needs to be renewed. You may even find yourself wanting to join a small group of runners who have ran a marathon on each continent. This 2003 release has a run time of 60 minutes and the events are covered in chronological order with the voice of Spencer Ross providing narration. Often the start and finish are shown, as well as some course maps, event history, size of field, local landmarks, weather conditions, course records, and web site information to learn more. Here are the listings: January: Start the new year with the "Midnight Run", a 4 mile run in New York City complete with costumes and fireworks. February: Elite men compete in Beppu Mainichi (Japan) while there is another small event along the Mediterranean Sea in Valencia (Spain). March: Visit the sights and sounds of the Eternal City in Rome (Italy). April: Large events such as the "Paris marathon", Rotterdam, Boston, London and Nagano are featured, as well as some smaller event such as Turin (Italy), the North Pole, the "Two Oceans ultra" in South Africa, and Big Sur along the Pacific Ocean. May: Race in Wroclaw (Poland), try the largest race in South America in San Paulo (Brazil), or visit Europe for the "Prague International marathon" or the clover leaf course in Vienna (Austria). June: The diversity is great in contrasting the "Rock 'N Roll marathon" in San Diego (Usa/California) to the "Comrades 89K ultra" in South Africa and the 14,000 runners in Stockholm (Sweden). July: Run Negril's famous coastline in the "Reggae marathon" (Jamaica) or go North to Iceland to do the loop course in the world's most Northern capital, Reykjavik. August: Fun times abound for the 2,000 person field in Quebec City (Canada). September: Sydney (Australia), Berlin (Germany), and the "Maui marathon" in Hawaii are all highlighted this month. October: The "Chicago marathon" has been a world record producing course, or shift gears by visiting Amsterdam (Netherlands), the "Ocean State marathon", or "Long Beach marathon" in California. November: The New York City event has two million spectators lining the five boroughs. December: "Run Barbados" in the Caribbean is a low key race compared to the "California International marathon" or the "Honolulu marathon" with 30,000 runners enjoying fireworks at the starting line at 5:30 in the morning. The DVD format is highly recommended since each of the races are indexed, allowing you to select any event with a push of a button. So when you start to plan your next marathon, or hear of a great performance (and want to see more than the three-second news clip from the television) this is the reference you will return to again and again to get a greater feeling of race day. Order your VHS tape or DVD copy from www.sportfilm.com then make sure your seat belt is securely fastened for this running adventure around the world.
