WE GIVE YOU SOMETHING GOOD TO READ
We came to a heavy realization this month. Not only we are slow runners, but we are even slow writers although this is not a bad thing. Thanks to you, and to your loyal contributions,Run The Planet is, in fact, growing rapidly and adding more and more content to its library of articles, but we can't keep up with such a fast pace with just one monthly newsletter.
Now, because we need to catch up with all that has happened this month, the following paragraph will have the literary grace and harmony of a raw shopping list quickly scribbled on the last page of your favorite running magazine. Sure, we will type it out for you, and give you direct links to the new articles, but then you are pretty much on your own. It is a great summer day outside and the roads are calling.
Without further ado, new additions to Run The Planet this month include Ten ideas to keep training fun, Wheelchair racing training tips, an article on Jet lag and performance for all you traveling runners out there, paired up with some Tips to avoid travellers' diarrhea which is just as important. And more tips in the Running motivation tips and techniques article to obtain, maintain, and increase your motivation to run. What else? Three more songs added to our Rtp Music list; our mascot Phil The Frog visited Canada's smalles province for a fun-filled weekend before heading south to Florida; while a study on A Medieval race in Verona mentioned by Dante in his "Divine Comedy" is now listed in the "Running through History" collection. We are also particularly proud to have posted an audio version of the article "Tips for blind and partially-sighted runners" (it just make sense) and another inspirational story, Run because you can, is now available in our Tell The Planet section. Finally, newbie triathletes would benefit from reading Ten tips for a fast transition.
Phiew! Going through all this month's additions in just one paragraph feels like sprinting on a track. We are not trained, to type this much about running without a break, and now we are out of breath.
And now off we go running. Stop reading and do the same all over the planet. It feels good.
RUN AGAINST TERRORISM
On September 18, 2005 participate to the seventh annual edition of the "Trofeo Drs Italia" running against terrorism. It is a virtual fun run with simultaneous official start at 9 in the morning (Italian time). Staggered starts in the different countries of the world according to each time zone. The distance to cover has been estabilished in 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). Because this is a virtual race, each participant can run anywhere in the world. The final results will consider valid any time obtained on training courses or within other running events (even if longer than 10 kilometers) as long as the participant is running on the official date of the event. The event can be ran on any terrain (asphalt, dirt road, track). Each participant can run alone or with other runners, even if the other runner do not belong to the Dead Runners Society. This edition welcomes the participation of runners not belonging to the Dead Runners Society.

WHERE TO RUN IN THE WORLD
Description of the month - Hoi An (Vietnam)
By Peter Sutherland - Hoi the world heritage town. For a good afternoon run in a beautiful town, start in the town centre and head towards the beach. You will pass many houses and locals. They will not understand your need to run and some kids will be sure to join in and have a great laugh along the way. Get to the beach (approximately 6 kilometers), have a quick swim, and purchase a pineapple perfectly pealed and ready to eat prior to the return leg. On the way back the sun will be setting over the rice fields and rivers. Amazing!! Total distance approximately 12 kilometers. You have earned a beer.

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:
•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
•What is the proper way to hydrate? - When I run half and full marathons, I get so dehydrated that I run out of energy near the end, and my leg muscles cramp up. I have tried drinking sports drinks and all of the recommended fluids to prevent dehydration, but I just can't seem to overcome the problem. What is the proper way to hydrate before and during a long run? - Dripping Dry
RUN THE PLANET LIBRARY
The power to transform young lives - thrusting teenagers on a path toward self-respect, empowerment, and good citizenship - is among the timely and vital subjects of a compelling book by Marc Bloom, an award-winning journalist who has chronicled the athletic achievements of youth in a career spanning more than three decades. Bloom, a "New York Times" writer and author of seven previous books, who is an authority on running and youth fitness, writes in "God on the starting line" of his experience coaching a boys' high school cross country team in New Jersey. Bloom, a life-long runner himself, offers a passionate account of his efforts to use the rigors of running as a vehicle to develop discipline, commitment, good values, and a sense of personal heroism in his young athletes. At a time when the majority of a nation's young people lack direction and purpose and are woefully out of shape, Bloom seeks to reverse the trend in the Jersey Shore town of Belmar, where he coaches St. Rose High School, a small Catholic school. Being Jewish, Bloom is surprised when the school hires him. But in time he believes that fate intervened, that "God's sure hand", as he writes, delivered him to St. Rose, where he pours his heart into the team and creates a "family" in which the athletes eventually respond to Bloom's relentless appeal for hard work and high standards. Speaking out against the consumer culture that entraps young people, giving them superficial ownership and a dangerous sense of entitlement, Bloom shows how devotion to the idea of arduous striving on the cross country course for the benefit not only of yourself but for teammates can be an exalting experience, one with spiritual power. Bloom's book is a heartfelt account of his own spiritual coming of age. Growing more comfortable in his Jewish skin, Bloom uses his renewed faith and belief in the "interconnectedness of all things" to inspire his Catholic team with messages of suffering (running hard in quest of "purification") for a cause. He finds common ground with Jewish and Catholic values, showing the boys that delayed gratification, not the cheap and easy, are important on and off the race course. Once Bloom's ideas take root, the Running Roses run their hearts out, making them State championship contenders and teaching the coach many lessons along the way. When that championship day arrives, rare bonds of caring among Bloom and his boys result in an emotionally-charged performance, revealing, in Bloom's summation, not only the heroics on the race course, but qualities to be emulated by us all. "God on the starting line", appraises Emmy Award-winning Olympic filmmaker Bud Greenspan, "is a classic, a tribute to all those who pursue excellence with talent, pride, courage, and the ability to endure; it is the best sports book I have read in years and should be required reading". "God on the starting line" is an essential story of our time. It addresses issues of education, adolescence, parenting, faith, religion, and sports. With the nation sunk in despair over the polarity of all groups fighting about their differences, Bloom, a former New York City teacher, shows how embracing the other wins the day; and that, in our hearts, we should all share in the opportunity to thrive our universal humanity - Click on the cover to order this book at a special price
This documentary about three generations of women distance runners can perhaps be described best as a labor of love. This production was produced, directed, and edited by Charlotte Lettis Richardson over a five year period as she completed her Certificate in Film Production from the Northwest Film Institute. The package is complete with original music and never before seen footage from over 40 years of women stepping forward on the running scene. Released in 2005, the DVD is under the authority of "Fast Girl Productions" and can be obtained through their official motion picture website (runlikeagirlfilm.com) where you can also view a fascinating timeline to the history of women’s running. The main theme examines how running has developed and changed for women over the past 40 and more years, and it illustrates the movement by featuring three athletes from three different eras. Although their stories are interwoven on screen (with artistic use of archived footage, still images, and superimposed layers of information) here is a brief look at each individual runner: Doris Brown Heritage (beginning her running in the late 1950’s was an unusual thing for that time period as women were restricted by the discrimination present in the rules of the day; girls were not even allowed to use the track facilities much less the need to overcome the obstacles of uniforms, transportation, and just having meets that allowed women to compete were often difficult to find; although training techniques were not well know, Doris set records on the track, qualified and competed in Olympic competitions, and won several World Cross Country titles over the course of her athletic career; she reflects back years later to the meaning of her athletic accomplishments: "I’m not a valuable person because I ran fast, because I had a world record, but it helped me to have faith in myself so that I could go into other areas of life and put myself out on a scary edge"); Charlotte Lettis Richardson (when Charlotte started competing in the early 1970’s, there was "Resistance at every turn; in races we are often laughed at by spectators on the sidelines; often there is no recognition at the end of the race that we had even finished"; in 1972 there was "great hope" when Title IX was passed by congress, yet the affects of this legislation would not be seen until 1975; from a grass roots movement grew a changing structure that acknowledged and promoted women’s only events and opportunities that had never been realized before; Charlotte acknowledges that "In some ways I think sports teaches people how to do hard things; probably the losing was the place where I learned the most about myself; in the end the running was merely just a mirror to the rest of my life, a way of simplifying and finding out what was already there"); Camille Connelly (growing up in the 80’s, Camille saw women training and competing in a variety of venues; she even participated in local road races as a child with her family; athletics and running were a way to have fun, form relationships with others, and be a part of a group; now as a high school senior, she want to train hard, compete to the fullest, and progress into the collegiate system on an athletic scholarship; she points out: "I want to take every opportunity and make the best of it; when I cross the finish line I want to be on the point of collapse; as a women, I believe that women should be in sports, I believe that I belong here"). Anyone would expect this film to be routinely shown in high school and college level classroom settings in courses such as Women’s Studies and Contemporary Issues in Sports. With a running time of 40 minutes, it is a good length for a classroom introduction and discussion to follow. Yet our hope is that this documentary will be introduced far beyond institutional settings and will be widely seen by all people, men and women, athletic or not. People benefit in numerous ways, both internal and external, from various aspects of running, and taking the time to see this film will allow further growth in our individual journeys. As Charlotte states: "Most important, I learned that there is always another race or another chance to get things right. If you don’t get it right the first time you can always try again". Doris Brown Heritage was inducted into the Track and Field Hall of Fame in 1990, and the Distance Running Hall of Fame in 2002. Carlotte Richardson continues in her coaching, filmmaking, and her responsibilities as a mother. Camille Connelly continues to compete in both cross country and track events at the University of Washington in Seattle.

The statue - who won the contest della Escuela y museo de bellas artes de Santiago - has been realized by the Chilean sculptor Guillermo Córdova, and is a gift to the city by Don José Menéndez, Spanish immigrant. Located in the center of the city of Punta Arenas, in Plaza Muñoz Gamero, this bronze of Hernando de Magallanes (Magellan) was inaugurated on December 16, 1920 in occasion of the fourth "Centenario del Descubrimiento del Estrecho de Magallanes" (Century of the discovery of the Magellan Strait). At Magellan's foot are two indigenous inhabitants. Local legend has it that those who kiss "the native's big toe" are destined to come back to Punta Arenas.
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.
Lighten up - All of us take ourselves, and our training, too seriously from time to time. I know I do. Despite my best efforts, some days it is hard to avoid thinking that I exist at the center of the universe. The best way to shake this feeling of importance is to put on my running shoes. As I apply vaseline to every nook and cranny, as I straighten the toe seams of my socks, as I adjust my running shorts so that I will look as trim as I can, and as I put on my lucky hat that any normal person would have thrown away, I begin to see the folly in my vanity. It occurs to me that if I were choosing the person around whom the universe would revolve, I wouldn't choose me. I wouldn't choose anyone who could argue the relative benefits of gel versus air versus grid. Somehow, I figure, if you've gotten to the point where you use words like CoolMax and GU with a straight face, the center of the universe has probably moved past you. Lighten up this week. Don't take yourself so seriously.
