WE GIVE YOU SOMETHING GOOD TO READ
"In 1965 the capital city's telephone operator was also the local jailer and the communications network was a hand-cranked telephone in a wooden shack. Since then, karaoke and Club Med have arrived, but most of the archipelago remains rural and undeveloped, swinging along to its own bucolic pace". This is how "Lonely Planet" introduces the Turks and Caicos Islands, in Central America. May we add that now the islands have Internet access? That's right, you have correctly guessed it: our statistics tell us that for the first time Run The Planet has been accessed by runners from the Turks and Caicos Islands! The list of countries from which runners visit Run The Planet counts now 169 different places.
If our worldwide running community is growing every day, it is because you are among family. We are runners just like you are, we provide and share information useful for runners at no cost, and - most important - when you talk, we listen. As a matter of fact, one of our loyal Planeteer recently wrote us:
"I have been receiving the newsletter for several years. Every time I want to find a city that I will be visiting I have to click to several spots before I finally find the locator. I want to have one link to find information regarding countries and cities. Years ago it was simple, now I can't find it easily. I have contributed blurbs about several cities' running areas in the past".Great feedback. We hid the running shoes of our programmer and forced him to follow up on this in order to get his beloved footwear back. Starting with this issue (kidnapping shoes to runners works great!) a convenient search box is permanently available at the bottom of the "Where to run in the world" section of this and each future newsletter, for an immediate access to all running course suggestions Run The Planet has to offer. Keep sending the feedback, together we can make the web site better.
But let's get back on track. We have so many new features to write about, the first one being about safety as usual.Run The Planet is committed to help you run safe with its dedicated Safety on the run section, but we also keep an eye open when it is time to share traveling safety tips, as we all like to run in different places and far away lands. This month spend a few minutes reading an article on Running away from your hotel on fire. It is quite common not to be ready to deal with such an emergency, and contrary to what you have seen on television or in the movies, fire is not likely to chase you down. You must know however how to avoid smoke and panic to survive a hotel fire, and this article offers you some tips.
And, speaking about traveling in far away lands, check out the Planeteer Spotlight webpage featuring an inspiring interview with Tracy Karbus from Egypt. Then pay a visit to His Hopping Greeness, Phil The Frog, who reportedly enjoyed his recent time in Toronto with Sally, participating to the "Mississauga Half Marathon", and posing in front of the CN Tower. Finally, clap and congratulate Nigel P. Patience from England, the first Planeteer to have ever completed one of our Rtp Missions. Read about his achievement on the Mission IV: The ABC of Running webpage. And you? Do you have what it takes?
Put your hands together also to rejoice with Robert Lavitt from Washington and Charles Greaves from Iowa. They are the winners of the "Win a Stroller" contest. They have each won a fancy Dreamer Design jogging stroller. All they had to do was submit a running course description and they were entered to win. And they won! Just think how happy they will be when they get to run with their Dreamer Design jogging stroller. No kidding - running with that stroller makes you want to run, and it just glides you over the road. Great stroller, lucky winners.
Among the new content, check out the article Salt and runners on the role of salt in your diet. Also read the interesting research Why did humans start running? Humans evolved from ape-like ancestors because they needed to run long distances and the ability to run shaped our anatomy, making us look like we do today. That is the conclusion of a study by University of Utah biologist Dennis Bramble and Harvard University anthropologist Daniel Lieberman, now posted in our Running through history section.
Another cartoon has been added this month to our Rtp Cartoons collection, a new program called RouteRuler can be downloaded from our Run The Software webpage, while the Tales from the sidewalk webpage feature this month the article Need a new family?
That's all for this month. Go out have fun and keep running the planet.
WEAR YOUR RUNNING DICTIONARY
If your running destination includes a language not yet available in our free running dictionaries collection, then don't forget to print a copy of our useful "Universal Running Dictionary".

You can even leave that travel partner that you brought along only for translation at home next time. But Run The Planet wants to makes your travel experience even more pleasurable. Instead of printing and dealing with a bunch of paper, we thought, why not wear your Universal Running Dictionary? Here are some new products specifically designed by runners with traveling runners in mind. On your next running event, wear our < or show up on the race day with our <.

WHERE TO RUN IN THE WORLD
Description of the month - Phoenix (Usa/Arizona)
By Bruce Wilkison - The Highline Canal is a small cement waterway in South Phoenix that runs on the south side of Baseline Road from just east of 48th street (in the Pointe at South Mountain Resort) until a ways west of Central Avenue. One side is mostly packed dirt, and the other side is asphalt paved, and it was designed specifically for recreational use. The major streets it crosses all have caution signs indicating the possible presence of bikers, runners and walkers. The canal runs through the diverse South Mountain area, where there is plenty of indigenous vegetation, occasional wild critters (especially early in the morning) and some interesting neighborhoods. It is one of the few areas that has retained some of its original character, but it is being developed rapidly, of course. It is popular, but never particularly busy. There are also nearby points of access to South Mountain Park.

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. 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
•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
With workout routines frequently delayed, postponed or cancelled by inadequate hotel exercise rooms, dilapidated equipment, short lap pools and unknown running routes, frequent fliers now have a reason to jump rope for joy! A new book, "The Athletic-Minded Traveler", rescues those with a penchant for purposeful sweat by identifying, rating and recommending the best places to stay and work out in 78 popular U.S. business and leisure destinations. Fitness enthusiasts can stop spending countless hours online filtering through marketing puffery and questioning uninformed hotel staff in an attempt to determine whether a facility is truly "state-of-the-art". Instead they can consult "The Athletic-Minded Traveler" to resolve their workout questions long before their bags are packed. After personally touring over 1100 hotels and fitness venues that made their first cut, the authors recommend more than five hundred locations conducive to an active lifestyle. "Gold", "Silver" and "Bronze" hotel recommendations are organized into three price categories and other fitness venues such as health clubs, lap pools, community centers and running routes are detailed in a "Beyond Hotels" section for each destination. Active travelers will appreciate chart breakdowns specifying equipment brands, quantities and quality along with facility size, aesthetics, cost, and more. Much more than a list of fitness options, "The Athletic-Minded Traveler" allows readers to discover accommodations and venues that match their personal preferences, budgets and athletic needs. Travelers can have it all-the right hotel, the right workout and the right location. Co-authors Kaese and Huddle have earned their travel and fitness "wings" through years of globetrotting as business entrepreneurs, endurance sport coaches and competitive triathletes. Both write monthly columns for "Triathlete Magazine" and Huddle is the co-author of "Starting Out Triathlon" and "Start to Finish Ironman Training". Together they have made traveling in athletic style a reality - Click on the cover to order this book at a special price
This is dramatic coverage of the 29th running of the "Western States 100" ultramarathon. From pre-race introductions, race start, running action, aid stations, and concluding at the finish line you will have the chance to make your own determination if these athletes are obsessed in their quest or just plain "mad". You will be drawn along as runners are featured as the day and miles pass along the course. There are no flashbacks or distortions of time as sections of the course are introduced with topographical and elevation maps along the way with course comments from Tim Tweitmeyer who has completed this course twenty times in less than 24 hours. Over four hundred people start in Squaw Valley and are confronted with the 18,000 feet of vertical climbing and 23,000 feet of descent experienced in this wilderness passage. Nearly one hundred people are listed in the films credits and almost half are introduced on-screen as they explore various running related topics. With runners, medical volunteers, aid station workers, massage therapists, pacers, family members, and race organizers, the extent of the conversations are wide in scope and quite interesting. If you have ever considered ultra trail running there are sure to be some tips that you can pick up along the way to make your own journey more successful. The athletes who are featured with personalized attention are varied and are presented in the following order throughout this production: Catra Corbett-McNeeley (she has turned her life away from drugs with the help of her exercise program; with less than two years of running experience this is her second "Western States 100"); Gordy Ainsleigh (he was the founding runner and first to complete the event in under 24 hours; with a wealth of experience his advice and energy are invaluable contributions to this production); Simon Mtuy (from Tanzania, he works as a guide on Mount Kilimanjaro and is raising funds to rebuild a school in his village of Marangu Mbahe); Emma Davies (being an ultrarunner for nearly a decade, she uses her four children as race support during this, here fourth running of this course); Scott Jurek (as a physical therapist from Seattle, he reveals his lifestyle that has resulted in three first place finishes in as many years; as he seeks his fourth consecutive win will a course record be in his sights this year?); Bob Pearson (he has to control his diabetes by checking his blood sugar and providing insulin to keep his body capable of running; will he maintain well enough to reach the finish line?); Clark Zealand (being a runner since the fourth grade, will this post-collegiate runner be able to meet his goal of being a competitive entrant in his first 100 mile race?). Nineteen runners are individually mentioned as they cross the finish line. This production is very well structured and presented and is complimented with nearly two dozen songs from three musical artist. Produced and directed by Susan Cohn Schultz, the founder of Jalapeno Productions, it has been featured at numerous film festivals including Ojai Film Festival, Woods Hole, Rome International, Hard Acre, and Everett Women’s Film Festival. You will find ordering information to obtain this 75 minute DVD at the official website (RunningMadness.com) and while you are there check out the three minute trailer that is offered in QuickTime or Windows Media format.

The subjects of Lysippos' statues were gods, heroes, and athletes like the "Athlete crowning himself" (also known as "Getty bronze", bronze with copper inlays) attributed to his production. The description of this statue, as found on the J. Paul Getty Museum website, offers more details about it: "A naked youth stands with his weight shifted on his right leg, crowning himself with a wreath, probably olive. The olive wreath was the prize for a victor in the Olympic Games and identifies this youth as a victorious athlete. The eyes of the figure were originally inlaid with colored stone or glass paste and the nipples were inlaid with copper, creating naturalistic color contrasts. Found in the sea off the coast of Italy, this statue is one of the few life-size Greek bronzes to have survived; as such, it provides much information on the technology of ancient bronze casting. The original location of the statue is unknown, but either Olympia or the youth's hometown is possible. Romans probably carried the statue off from its original location during the first century bC or aD, the height of Roman collecting of Greek art. The Roman ship carrying it to Italy then foundered off the coast, preserving the statue for centuries in the sea". Lysippus, was born in Sikyon (Greece) around 390 B.C., and is one of the most documented of all Greek sculptors. In his youth he worked as a common bronze-smith, teaching himself the art of sculpture and developing his own style, on which Hellenistic sculpture is widely based on. Acclaimed as the leader of the Argos and Sicyon school, Lysippos is said to have made more than fifteen hundreds bronzes, according to Pliny the Elder, but of these many art works no certain original exists, for none has survived. The marble statues considered copies of his bronzes are said not to do justice to his fine achievements, for they probably mutate the Roman neo-classic taste. In reproducing the human figure, Lysippos revised the proportions set by the Polykleitos' canon, also adding a new sense of movement. The sizes of Lysippos' works ranged from small bronzes to a statue of Zeus in Taranto, which is eighteen meters high. In particular he made several portrait busts of Alexander the Great, having been appointed as his personal sculptor.
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.
Staying the course - New athletes don't always understand the whole truth. It is easier to believe that one can reach new physical and emotional goals through running than to believe that reaching those goals requires patience, discipline, and plain hard work. Failure in a training program is early always self-inflicted. How do new runners and walkers fail? By setting expectations so high they would be unachievable. They tell themselves that they can undo the damage they have done to their body in a matter of weeks. For many these unmet expectations lead to frustration and ultimately to giving up. The shame is that had they waited the extra week or month it sometimes takes, they would have found the joy they were looking for.
