WE GIVE YOU SOMETHING GOOD TO READ
Run The Planet is proud to welcome the newest Run The Planet website, Rtp Colombia, created in collaboration with the local running portal Juancho Correlon. This website is ready to be used by all the runners around the world who speak Spanish and who are interested in a Colombian twist on their favorite running website,Run The Planet. Rtp Colombia is the latest in the list of Run The Planet satellite websites which includes Rtp Argentina, Rtp Brasil, Rtp España, Rtp France, and Rtp Italia. And the list keeps growing!
From South America to Asia, to welcome new visitors from East Timor! East Timor has now been added to the list of 166 countries from which runners visit Run The Planet. When we claim we are the largest worldwide running community on the Internet we mean it.
The largest running community, but more than that. We are like a family, and this fact leads us to welcome yet another section on Run The Planet, dedicated not to the family of runners, but the runners' family. Has anyone ever realized how hard it must be not to share the same passion, yet having to share a relationship with a runner? Not understanding the urge to run so early in the morning, to buy new shoes every six months, let alone all that sweating. To answer your significant other's question the Tales from the sidewalk webpage is now available, thanks to the collaboration with MarathonFamily.com, with the first article of many, "Cheering: helpful or just irritating?" on how to support your partner's participation without unknowingly rubbing runners the wrong way.
And we all know how it is important to have the proper support to achieve our running goals. What we may have forgotten is that once you are through the finish line, you can share your experience with other runners worldwide. For this purpose we have a specific section, Tell The Planet, that this month hosts the enticing story by Karen Embree and her marathon. A marathon she completed, as she tells us, "With a smile on my face".
If this accomplishment makes you feel like a winner (and it should), like an unstoppable running machine, like the path warrior that you are, then why not treat yourself to the ultimate footwear? We are talking about indulging in a pair of Running shoes developed by the Army, a new high performance shoe which has been created in association with the British troops.
If instead you feel like a superhero, like the runner that saves the day, then do not miss the opportunity to learn new skills, in particular How to fix a flat tire on a jogging stroller so you can really make a difference in someone else's life.
Talking about strollers, try your luck in the second Run The Planet's Win a Stroller contest. It is super-easy and the prizes are super super. Just submit a running course description and your name will be automatically entered to win a Ditto stroller by one of our favorite sponsors, Dreamer Design. A jogging stroller is great for running and walking exercise. What if you don't have kids to stroll around? Don't think a Dreamer Design stroller is not for you - how many times would you like to have jogged down to the market and pick up milk? Well with a Dreamer Design stroller you don't have to steal shopping carts anymore, and it will make you look good. So enter your description to win one today.
Keep running the planet.
DID YOU KNOW THAT...?
Did you know that the "Rtp Newsletter" was established before the website itself? The first issue of our electronic magazine (e-zine) was sent in March 1996 by e-mail to a limited number of subscribers. Only later, given to the great popularity of this free e-mail service, and to the growing number of running course descriptions for cities around the world, the website Run The Planet was born! It was September 7, 1996.

WHERE TO RUN IN THE WORLD
Description of the month - Randers (Denmark)
By Bjarne Stange Nielsen - You can find an indeed lovely and varied run along the biggest river in Denmark (Gudenåen). Follow the river from the city all the way to Fladbro forest where there is a deer park and a marked course about 6 kilometres long called "Hjertesti" which means "heart trail". It is truly a lovely place to run. At Fladbro forest there are several parking places if you don't want to do the river.

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:
•Why do we need to replace our shoes so often? - Even with all the new technology and research in running shoes, why do the experts still recommend that we replace our shoes every five hundred miles? It seems to me that as the price of shoes increase, their life span should increase as well - Everlasting Shoes
•Is there a rubbing cream designed to relieve foot pain? - This has been bugging me for awhile since I am a long-time runner as well as a waitress. What nice pain-relieving rubbing cream is specifically designed to relieve foot pain? I just want to rub it in the night before and wake up, get out of bed, step on my feet, and not feel any pain. Any suggestions? - Victoria Drake
•Can you recommend music to listen while training? - I received one of those new-fangled digital audio players as a gift, over the holidays, and have been listening to some of my favorite songs while running each day. I have noticed that some songs seem to empower me to run faster. Can you recommend a short list of inspirational running music that would be good to listen to while I am training for my marathon? - Musically Endeared
RUN THE PLANET LIBRARY
The runner's high is a marvelous side-effect of running, though mysterious and elusive. Sometimes you get it, usually you don't. These forty-seven personal stories explore it in depth and detail, from euphoria to religious visions and mindblowing out-of-body experiences. One constant through these stories is an overwhelming sense of joy and awe at the infinite possibilities of the human body and soul. A man experiences a joyfull downhill run as pure flight, unhindered freefall. One woman finds that breathing during running is an act of prayer. A runner on a tropical beach finds her surroundings metamorphosing surreally before her eyes. One man out on his daily run experiences a flash of utter peace and universal clarity - a moment that he later realizes occurred at precisely the time his father passed away. The runner's high leads one man onward to find an even higher power: true, honest love. And the ultimate story is from a man in a maximum-security prison, who, during his runs in his tiny concrete cell, finds himself beyond all walls and iron bars. This dazzling celebration of running as a spiritual experience will inspire people of all abilities to explore the metaphysical side of running.

If you have ever wanted to know more about the American distance runners, who are striving to compete with the world, than this is your golden opportunity to glance "behind the scenes" and meet these athletes. A small group of filmmakers from Colorado College, led by producer Carl Leivers and director Brennan Galloway, formed Negative Split Pictures and have stepped forward in assembling this 100-minute film about the 5,000 meter track event. The crew filmed in California, Colorado, Michigan and Oregon throughout the summer of 2004, culminating with the United States Olympic Trials in Sacramento to select the Olympic squad. For a low budget first film, produced in a rapid-fire time frame, this production is an amazing accomplishment. This film introduces the nine primary athletes and them follows them through their training and racing to obtain one of the 24 slots in the trials by running the Trials B standard time of 13:48. From the "Mt. Sac Relays" in Walnut California 13 weeks prior to the trials you will journey week by week through competitions at the "Adidas Track Classic", inner squad time trials, "Prefontaine Classic", and discussions of races in Europe, as they try to peak at just the right time in quest of the elusive Olympic "A Standard" of 13:21.50. As narrator Tom Roper states "The standard is non-flexible or open to negotiation". Mixed with interviews, both before and after competition, you get a true documentary feel of being there and coping with the outcomes. On several occasions these athletes went into the race with high expectations of their fitness, however, when the times did not meet their goals the disappointment was apparent. As Goucher expressed "I got anaerobic too soon, too quick; I laid it on the line too soon and I paid the price". Many athletes struggle, yet the hopes remain high as training continues as each focuses on their goals. Quotes, as presented by each featured runner. Bolota Asmerom: "I’ve got some work to do, but I’ll take it. This was a great start for me". Ryan Bak: "It was a P.R., not by much, but it was easier then other 1500s". Tim Broe: "I’m glad it all came together". Adam Goucher: "I’m going to go over there and run my ass off and see what happens". Matt Lane: "It was the second fastest 5k in my career so I have to take that as a positive". Mark Menefee: "I'm happy to be a sub 13:40 guy now". Jonathon Riley: "I was just happy to get that kind of performance in and it’s just really exciting for me". Dathan Ritzenhein: "I think I’m really fit and ready for a fast five". Jorge Torres: "Anytime it’s a personal record it’s a good time". The climax of this film is at the Olympic Trials where most of the athletes advance to the finals four days after the qualifying round is shown. What a thrill to set back and watch the final develop, lap by lap, with the stadium announcer clearly calling the lap splits, kilometer splits, and changing positions at the front of the pack. The crowd does all they can to help the athletes and your adrenaline will be flowing as you watch them compete. Unfortunately, after the race the rules of the team selection were not very clear and it is comical to hear many of the athletes describe possible scenarios for the Olympic Team. To read more about this production visit the official film website at www.fivethousandmeters.com. You can view a short trailer, read additional athlete information, see more photos, listen to some of the music, and scan the latest news releases. You may also place your order for a DVD version of this revealing production as well as see what running stores may be carrying it in your area. On the disc you will find two trailers, an outtake section, and "The Tim and Ron Show" where Tim Broe and his coach Ron Warhurst engage in some enjoyable banter.

In 1913 Boccioni realized the statue titled "Forme uniche della continuità nello spazio" ("Unique forms of continuity in space"; bronze, dimensions 110 centimeters) where the traditional heroic nude is revisited according to the Futurist movement's ideals of progress, power, speed and dynamism, and the necessity that art keep pace with the modern technological and industrial civilization away from the retrospective Italian dream of an antique Reinassance past. He said "To render a body in motion, I definitely do not present the trajectory, that is the passage from one state of response to another state of response, but force myself to ascertain the form that expresses the continuity in space". Painter, sculptor and etcher, Umberto Boccioni was born in Reggio di Calabria (Italy) on April 19, 1882. In 1889 he attended the painting school Scuola Libera del Nudo in Roma, where he met Gino Severini and also Balla who gave him his first instruction in painting. Boccioni spent the following years traveling to Paris (France) and Saint Petersburg (Russia). Then he came back to Italy. He settled in Milano in 1908, and in 1910 Boccioni met Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, Sironi and Cambelotti. With Carrà, Russolo and Severini he is one of the signatories of the two manifestos of Futurist painting (the first one in 1910), and soon he became the leading theoretician of the movement. During these years he became a sculptor, and in 1912 he issued a Technical Manifesto of Futurist Sculpture. Wounded while fighting in the Italian Army in 1915, he died in 1916, after falling from a horse during a military exercise near Verona. This work of art is also on display at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City (Usa/New York), Kroller-Muller Museum in Otterlo (Netherlands), Tate Modern in London (United Kingdom) and is part of a private collection in Rome (Italy).
PENGUIN INSPIRATION OF THE MONTH
Visit JohnBingham.com for more running pearls of wisdom from John "the Penguin" Bingham. Through his popular monthly column in Runner's World magazine, his breakthrough first book "The Courage to Start: A Guide to Running for Your Life" and his best selling "No Need for Speed: A Beginner's Guide to the Joy of Running" the Penguin has inspired hundreds of thousands of men and women to run for fun, fitness, and self-affirmation.
The Magic of "I can" - Is easy to start a training program tied in "nots". I am not fit enough. I am not thin enough. I am not disciplined enough. But, it is not true. You are. You are as ready as you will ever be. There is a magic in simply saying "I can". I can do this. I can start today. I can train when I supposed to and can rest when I need to. It is really as simple as that. If you think you can or think you can't, you are right.
