WHERE TO RUN IN THE WORLD
Description of the month - Glendale (Usa/California)
By Stan Bass - Verdugo Mountains, Beaudry Trail, North Slope. This is an absolutely beautiful, if difficult, trail to run. The Verdugo Mountains loom above Glendale and Burbank. They are low mountains, unless you decide to run up the many fire roads they have, when they suddenly become very high. You can run a six-miler up the really wonderful, well-maintained dirt road to the summit, round trip. If you are into running farther, well, the mountain roads go all around the Verdugos. I think you could run a 12 mile training run, if you were crazy enough to want to. I once ran into a beautiful woman up there who was running a 24-mile training run, up-and-down, I guess all day. I would love to do that, too. But I do not know if she would still be there.

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:
•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.

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
•What should I look for in a "racing watch"? - What should I look for in a "racing watch"? I see so many runners, at road races, with high-tech, slick looking wrist watches, and am interested in purchasing one. What are the benefits of running with a time-piece? - Timely Questioner
RUN THE PLANET LIBRARY
"Running Colorado's Front Range", written by Brian Metzler, offers runners of all abilities insights on the best places to run in and around Denver, Aurora, Westminster, Littleton, Louisville, Lafayette, Cherry Hills Village, Boulder, the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area near Nederland, Golden, Lakewood, Evergreen, Morrison, Littleton, Loveland, Lyons, Fort Collins, Estes Park, Keota, Manitou Springs, Franktown, Colorado Springs, Monument and Woodland Park. It is indeed the ultimate guide to running in Colorado. Routes for 75 places to run are described in this book, from urban paths such as the popular paved loop in Denver's City Park to dozens of pastoral escapes to restore your soul, with detailed maps and photos. Whether you want to go for a short run during your lunch break, a hill workout, a speed training, or a long slow run on a Sunday afternoon, each trail description includes a difficulty rating and details about elevation change, dog regulations, and running stroller accessibility. Also covered in "Running Colorado's Front Range" are regional races, running groups, and stores. Veteran runner Brian Metzler also shares his knowledge and advice on running at altitude, race training, running shoes, safety, and staying hydrated in dry climates on these magnificent Colorado trails. Founding editor of "Trail Runner Magazine" and "and Adventure Sports Magazine", Brian Metzler has written about running for "The (Boulder) Daily Camera", "The Denver Post", "The Chicago Tribune", and "Outside" magazine.

"Run. Because it’s the only thing left to do". The story, remember the story. But first, the numbers... 0 (the amount paid to the actors, but you wouldn’t know it), 2 (the number of different public schools and track facilities), 3 (this is Kelley Baker’s third feature film in the last six years), 18 (how many days it took to shoot all the footage "guerilla style"), 23 (the number of cuts on the soundtrack from four different artists), 49 (how many people gave $100 each to finance this film), 70 (thirty credited cast members and forty more extras to fill out the scenes), 100 (the running time of this truly independent feature film). "Run. To seek the truth. To escape the beating". Now for the story. This original screenplay is based on really believable characters as they confront a series of emotional challenges. The raw emotion, mixed with the hope through running, is well paced, and has an original soundtrack that rocks this story as often as the characters can be seen running. Although set at a high school level, this is not a feel-good-make-lots-of-money-for-the-fancy-studio kind of film. This movie is not just simply "entertainment" either. It is about life’s struggles exposed and you will be thinking, reflecting, hoping, and plotting as the story of Martin Johnson (Ian Anderson-Priddy) is revealed. It is not too often that feature films use running as a method of story line (run from problems, run to avoid pain, run for hope of the future, run to find yourself, run to save your life), and that is what stands this movie apart. "Run. For the purity of it". Oh yeah, the running. The first image is the word "Run" on the screen and the first scene is of Martin "Bird" Johnson running out of the school and down the street. He continues to run from the cross country team that want to beat him up and after he is in a fight, he joins the team to get out of detention. The coach has a speech about how running could be his "out" from being a "loser" and how he can make it into college with his talent. Yet first he must train, and compete in some races to really show his true potential. Although Martin discovers where he stands, the motives of those around him are much more questionable. If you are a running purist and want to sit back and nit-pick the clothing, shoes, surfaces, training methods, and race logistics then skip this title and move onto the documentary films instead. If you want a fictional, thought provoking tale with twists and revelations along the way, then take notice of "Kicking Bird". In the end you will be glad it is over, yet you will want more. Although not rated, it would get an "R" listing for language, violence, and adult situations. The screen may not be filled with the richness and depth of a multi-million dollar blockbuster that you are used to seeing, but that is the price for a great story on a shoestring budget. You may order this DVD in widescreen format directly from the filmmaker, Kelley Baker at his website AngryFilmmaker.com.

Between February 10 and February 11, 1890, van Gogh painted in Saint-Rémy "Prisoners' Exercising" (also known as "Prisoners' Round"; oil on canvas; dimensions 80 x 64 centimeters), a painting based on "Newgate: The Exercise Yard" by Gustave Doré. Van Gogh was born on March 30, 1853 in Groot Zundert, in the district of North Brabant (Netherlands). His father Theodorus van Gogh, a Protestant minister, wanted him to be a clergyman but he did not follow his father's footsteps. Instead, in 1869 he started working in a company of art dealers, first in The Hague and then in London and Paris. After leaving that job, teaching at schools in Rasmgate and Isleworth (England), working in a bookshop in Dordrecht (Netherlands) and becoming a missionary in Wasmes (Belgium), he ended up living in the small village of Cuesmes where one day, compelled to go and visit the French painter Jules Breton whom he greatly admired, he walked seventy kilometers to the French city of Courrières. Vincent ended up returning home with out meeting the artist. In 1880 he finally decided to dedicate his life to art and went to Brussels to study at the Ecole des Beaux-Art. In 1886 he moved back to Paris, incorporating in his own unique style with some of the techniques of the Impressionists. On February 20, 1888 he moved south to Arles, in Provence and later on he invited artist Paul Gauguin to join him. Gauguin arrived in Arles in October but by December the relationship between the two artists had already deteriorated, as did Vincent's mental health (on December 23 van Gogh mutilated his left ear). Later on Vincent van Gogh voluntarily choose to be confined in the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, where he realized his best-known work "Starry Night". On May 16, 1890 his brother Theo transferred him to Paris and then to the more-quiet destination of Auvers-sur-Oise, where Vincent van Gogh, in an attack of depression, killed himself on July 27, 1890.
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.
Starting from the beginning - Starting a training program is easy. Almost anyone can do it. You don't need any special skills or talent. All you need is a pair of shoes and a place to run. This simplicity is one of this sport's major attractions. The physical benefits are well documented. Even neglected bodies like mine was can renew themselves. The litany of emotional benefits is also well known. Many of us like to philosophize about the inner peace produced by running. But these benefits are only half the truth. The other half is that sometimes running is difficult. Sometimes a run isn't fun. Sometimes it's a matter of dragging yourself out the door and getting in the miles. Over the next few months there will be time of joy and times of frustration. There may even be times of discouragement. But the sum total of all those times makes the training worthwhile.
