Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in the website and the newsletter are those of the author(s) and don't necessarily reflect the views of Run The Planet.
As we are busy running and celebrating the beginning of our eighth year on the Internet, we will keep this newsletter short. There is so much to read in this monthly bulletin (and so much to explore on Run The Planet), that we are sure you will not miss our otherwise long and never-ending list of enhancements and improvements to your favorite website.
Let us simply bring to your attention that three new interesting articles are now featured in our "Dr. Planet" section.
The first one is Muscular coordination on the treadmill, a study where lower extremity kinematics and electromyography from eight muscles were examined in high speed treadmill running in both incline and level conditions, comparing muscular activity among different movements. It sure is technical stuff.
The second one is a useful compilation of short exercises that you can enjoy to keep your fitness level, simply by Training in your office. When you have been sitting at your office desk for several hours, and you suddenly get up, you often find difficult even to walk, let alone going out for a run. You feel tight and your muscles are stiff. This is due to inactivity, rather than from working itself.
Dealing with heel spurs is the third new Dr. Planet's article, about plantar fasciitis, a foot condition often accompanied by a heel spur, a calcium deposit formed on the heel bone.
New images from Canada were added to the collection featured in "World Crossroads", the unusual yet intriguing webpage on pedestrian, running and hiking street signs from around the world.
Finally, if you consider yourself a "beautiful mind" in a runner's shell, enjoy The solution to a knotty problem, an extremely interesting article by Monash University mathematician Dr. Burkard Polster, who has used numeric formulae to identify the strongest and most efficient ways of lacing shoes. Thousands of years of trial and error have led to humans lacing their shoes in the strongest way possible, he has found, but we haven't adopted the best way of tying laces into knots - many of us still use knots that are more likely to come undone. Are you one of them?
We would like to close by mentioning that finally the < is here. It is a great useful idea with a running twist. And here at Run The Planet we all wear one already. Make sure to give yourself one for your birthday, or before your next travel, or for Christmas or just for no apparent reason (celebrating randomly feels so good). It is also the perfect gift for your running friend. You will find more details as you keep reading this newsletter.
Enjoy your run, and keep running the planet.

We did it! Thirty-two hours after we started, The Penguin Brigade finished the 198 mile "Hood to Coast" relay. What a fantastic experience.
Just imagine: 198 miles, 12 runners, 2 vans. Now, imagine 1,000 teams all doing the same thing. The race starts in waves from 8 am to 7 pm and the runners keep going non-stop for the next 24-36 hours.
I was in Van 1 and ran leg number 2. That meant that my first run was 6 miles down off of Mount Hood. It wasn't as bad as leg number 1 which dropped 2,000 feet in 6 miles, but my run was a "quad buster" for sure. I had no idea what to expect when, 10 hours later, it was time to get out and run another 6 miles.
After a slow, even for me, start the run actually went well. It was dark and a little scary but I made it. Then, 10 hours later, it was time to get out and do it again.
I'd like to tell you that it was easy, but it wasn't. I struggled through my third run just wanting to see the exchange point. Handing off the baton and knowing that I was finished was a great relief.
It was, without question, the most satisfying and fun time I've ever had as a runner. Getting to know my teammates, feeling like I was a part of "the Team", and digging deep into my reserves made it all worth the effort.
I'll be crewing for an 8-day adventure race, running a half marathon in England, and then on to Appleton, Wisconsin and the "Fox Cities marathon" in the month ahead. I hope to see some of you out there on the roads.
Until then, Waddle on, friends...
Where to run in the world
Description of the month - Cape Town (South Africa)
By Frank McShane - From the shadow of Newlands stadium, to the sumptuous suburb of Bishops Court, through the famous gardens of Kirstenbosch, and the rugged trails of Celia Forest, there lays a challenge for all who delight in the sport of running, walking or simply airing the dog. Skirting the foothills of Skeleton Gorge, broad avenues and spreading Chestnut trees provide the perfect landscape and unpolluted environment for those who wish to explore the limits of strength and endurance. Within these tranquil heights where wild animals roamed, and wagon wheels rolled centuries ago, endless hills lead the way to regions beyond the banks of the Liesbeek River and the vynbos fields of our fairest Cape. Should you choose to begin your run from the top gate entrance to Kirstenbosch, it is best to follow the gravel path, where fields of Restios and Protea flank the road on either side. You will need a good pair of lungs, as the route winds steeply through dense shrub until it reaches a horizontal plain where a spectacular view of the Cape flats and southern suburbs will help you catch your breath for the rugged road ahead. Leaving the hills behind, the undulating trail unfolds through shallow river beds and tall green pines, with striking views of Constantia valley, the white washed shores of False Bay, and the shimmering blue mountains of the Helderberg. At a point along the track, in a shady nook of the forest, icy water tumbles freely from a subterranean creek to a tranquil pool, then fades into the deep grassy ravine below. It is the water only stop on this route, is perfectly drinkable and most refreshing. Beyond that oasis, the trail leads through clusters of cork trees and ancient yellow woods, until it rises to the upper contour path, then winds back to the evergreen slopes of Nursery Ravine. There is no need to rush this phase of the journey, for time bears no consequence, and the path is strewn with bared roots and loose sandstone. It is better to stroll, and absorb the magnificent spectacle of man's commitment to the colossal task of preserving our precious heritage of indigenous flora rarely found in other parts of the world.

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:
•Where is my finisher's medal? - I have been trying to contact the race organizers of a local half marathon, regarding the fact that they do not award finishers with a medal, as they do in other distance races. How can I convince them to include this amenity? - Tom in Chicago
•When I run, I get the runs! Is there a solution? - When I run, I get the runs! Yesterday, during a ten-miler, I had to stop twice to relieve myself even though I had a bowel movement prior to leaving home. This is becoming a serious concern, as it seems to affect all my runs. Have you ever heard of this problem? Is there a solution that does not involve medication? - Seeking Movement Improvement
•Could you recommend the Perfect Runner's Automobile? - I'm a serious competitive runner who runs a race most every Sunday. I'm in the market to purchase a new automobile, and was hoping you could recommend some of the auto-attributes I should consider when purchasing my next car. What would make my car the "Perfect Runner's Automobile"? - Running on Overdrive

Statistics show that people who run regularly are thinner, have lower cholesterol, and live longer, healthier lives. But, as you know, getting a running regimen started is not as easy as picking up a pair of sneakers and shooting out the door. Fortunately, veteran marathon runner Art Libermann had teamed up with podiatrist Stephen Pribut and publishing professional Carlo DeVito to create the ultimate reference. Author Art Liberman is also a long-time running coach, and founder of the popular marathon training website marathontraining.com. Sports podistrist Stephen Pribut, M.D., is also a marathon runner. Carlo DeVito is the author of several publications. "The Everything Running Book" is a quick and easy guide to getting started on a running program that works for you. This complete book covers everything you need to know, from eating right, stretching, and treating common injuries to strapping on the right pair of sneakers and hitting the track or treadmill. "The Everything Running Book" features practical advice on what to eat and not to eat before and after a run, how to stretch before and after a run, how to cross-train with weights and other activities, how to regulate water intake, how to create a running plan based on your age, sex, medical history, and lifestyle.

"We may train or peek for a certain race but running is a lifetime sport". This instructional tape that was directed by Ambrose Salmini and hosted by Alberto Salazar is just as relevant today as it was during its release in 1990. Packed full of elite runners, primarily in competition against one another, each aspect is illustrated well as the slow motion movement drives home the main points that are also summarized on screen for emphasis. This nostalgic filled hour long lesson is divided into seven sections: setting goals (whether it is to improve fitness, maintain speed in a race, or set a personal record, by setting your focus on both short and long term goals you are sure to improve), philosophy (taking less than two minutes on this tape, you will see that an individual at any level will find rewards by running), running technique (a quarter of this video is dedicated to going through a runner's form from "top to bottom" comparing the technique of many elite athletes including Ignacio Fragoso, Doug Padilla, Ibrahim Hussein, Salvatore Bettiol, Ed Eyestone, Kim Jones, Geoff Smith, Steve Jones, Toshihiko Seko, Francie Larrieu Smith, Pat Peterson, Julius Kariuki, Steve Scott, John Sinclair, and other award winning athletes), training methods (encompassing nearly twenty minutes, more athletes are used to demonstrate specific concepts of mileage, intervals, hills, cross country, cross training, fartlek, adventure running, ultrarunning, uphill and downhill form, drills, and weight training; race footage from the "New York City Marathon", "Bloomsday", "Cascade Run Off", "Carlsbad 5000", "Boston Marathon", Men and Women's Olympic Marathon Trials, "San Blas Marathon", Honolulu, Peachtree and the Falmouth Road Races are all used to stress the variety of training philosophies); injury prevention (only a few minutes are dedicated to the need to being smart to avoid running injuries; the use of rest, moderation, cross training and returning to performance levels slowly are emphasized), mental preparation (Salazar shares his experience with the 1982 "Boston Marathon", where he and Dick Beardsley had their "duel in the sun" with Salazar winning in 2:08:52, the best Boston time by an American until Bob Kempainen in 1994), racing (know your pacing, review the course, hydrate properly, and then go for it, and you will improve your competitiveness by adapting to the weather, keeping contact, initiating surges, using the aid stations correctly, tucking into the pack, and knowing your limits based on your fitness level; these points are revealed with footage of Rolando Vera, Janis Klecker, Cathy O'Brien, Cyndie Welte, and Alberto Salazar finishing the 1980 "New York City Marathon" in 2:09:41, the first of three consecutive wins, that are all shown in the last ten minutes of this presentation).
