1/1/10 Resolution run

Hi,
Happy New Year's Eve!

Mike and I want to wish you a Happy New Year and thank you all for being part of Santa Barbara Running and Racing! This weekend I will be writing up a brief review of the running year for the athletes I write schedules for and for those I've observed whether I'm writing your schedule or not. Mike will be doing the same when he gets a moment so don't be bummed if you don't see your name right away....as I'm sure it's on it's way.

We will be using the resolution 5k/10k as our workout tomorrow. It begins at Chase Palm park 8am. Some will race and other will do a tempo run.

If you are not racing, then we suggest using the 10k as your workout (it's two 5k loops). Run the first loop at ~marathon effort/pace and the second loop about 10sec slower than your 10K race effort.
Good Luck to those racing!

CONGRATS TO CIM RUNNERS!!

It was a great pleasure to watch Tim Strand, Michelle M. and Kary all run PR's on a perfect marathon racing day!
Here's the way I saw their performaces:
Tim, 2:39 and change.....The goal was for Tim to break 2:40 and he ran like a Pro! Tim's split at halfway was 1:20:08, second half negative at 1:19:35! Tim has been working hard for years now and it's paid off. A big goal achieved!

Michelle's goal was anything under 3hrs, but I know she wanted 2:57. She was treated to the elite tent, had her own water bottles at various points on the course and got caught up in the hoopla a bit. Michelle went out about 30-40sec/mile too fast for the first 3miles and this hurt her BIGTIME. I honestly think she may have been able to run under 2:57 had she gone out much slower, BUT even though she was clearly hurting at 18miles, she suffered through and ran a great RACE to PR in sub 3hrs. Great JOB and a valuable lesson learned. The incredible thing is the fact she could run so fast at the beginning and still finish so respectably shows she is what we all know and that she's MUCH faster than 2:57! Congrats.

Kary is a novice competitive runner in general, but even more so as a marathoner, yet she ran with the savy and poise of a seasoned vet. As many of you know it takes years to be able to have ones speed equivalent match ones endurance. This is kary's situation. She's fast enough to run sub 3, but needs more time to build the endurance needed to do it.
At 18miles kary was in lots of pain, but never wavered and showed her fearlessness in the face of this and ran a great PR 3:09. Congrats!!

CONGRATS TO BRIAN DUTTER!

Congrats to Brian (he's the one with the Orange T-shirt, and yellow shorts, camera in hand mid stride) as he ran 19:33 at Nite Moves for his best 5K in 15 years! Not everyone knows this, but Brian has been struggling biomechanically since I met him 2-3 yrs ago and he has managed to improve his biomechanics to the point where he can train up to his level of fitness most of the time. Nice to know if you are steadfast enough, you can improve and change ingrained habits.
Nice job Brian!

Saturday 8/21/10 Practice

Hi All, We are meeting at Zizzo's Coffee at 370 Storke Road, Goleta 93117, Saturday at 6:30am. (the parking lot adjacent to Zizzo's)
St.George runners don't fear you will have your share of ups and downs. We have a great one planned for you:)

A SELECT STAFFING SANTA BARBARA INTERNATIONAL MARATHON AND 1/2 MARATHON MESSAGE FROM KIM BURNELL

Hi SBRR teammates!

It's already July (holy cow), and that means training for the Santa Barbara International Marathon & 1/2 is starting soon. That ALSO means that work on our beloved race program is under way. For the race directors and the hundreds of locals involved (most of you included!), this race is more about community spirit, support and participation than anything else. The race program offers a venue where we can all come together and show off the special places and things to do in our awesome town. But it's also about the locals -- there are tons of cool businesses out there that many of the runners would be interested in but don't yet know about. We're all athletes who care about family, our community and having fun ... maybe running a little, too! :)

For local businesses, the high-quality, full-color, glossy magazine that serves as the SBIM program is an awesome opportunity to get noticed. As you all know, the race program serves as the ultimate guide for runners and their families throughout the weekend. It's also something that participants will save and look back over for years to come. If you aren't part of a business that would advertise but know someone who is, please pass along this e-mail and/or my contact information.

Ad prices start as low as $125, and this year we're including a special section called "Made in Santa Barbara" that will feature locally made products. As members of SBRR, I love you all, so you automatically earn a 40% discount on rates if you sign a contract by Aug. 1. Deadline for all art is Aug. 15.

Full-price rates:
* Full-page (bleed): $2,000
* 1/2 page: $1,150
* 1/3 page: $765
* 1/4 page: $550
* 1/6 page:$375
* Business-card size (1/8): $200
* Mini square (1/16): $125
* Featured on "Made in Santa Barbara" page: $250

You and your families/friends can also still take advantage of "Good Luck!" notes we offered last year. This is already a special price, so discounts don't apply:
* Black-and-white mini square (no photos, max 15 words): $50
* 1/4 page full color (photo option, max 30 words): $100
* 1/2 page full color (photo option): $300

Thanks in advance for all your support! If you're interested in more information, please let me know. You can contact me via e-mail at burnellk@cox.net or on my cell at 303-877-7629.

SBRR SHIRTS AT SBRUNCO, GOLETA

HI All, if you haven't received a new SBRR shirt, there are some left at the Goleta SBRunning Co store in Goleta. I left them in my car after Sat practice and never got them to the store Saturday. They are there as of Sunday night..go get em! (about 50 left)
Thanks.

CONGRATS TO SBRR RUNNERS AT McConnells 10K

Great job everyone who ran the McConnell's 10k this weekend! We had many missing, BUT even so had 5 of the top 10 and 9 in the top 20! Not that we're counting, but 17 in top 45.....ok enough stats. Some highlights:
Mike Shalhoub was 2nd overall, 3 seconds in front of Ricky Ho with Tim Strand (the highest age grader of the day) and Jamie Haggar close behind.

We have quite a men's masters crew (over 40) shaping up with Tim Strand, Kent Harris (8th), Eric Widmar, Tim Smith, and if Jeff Devine gets in shape and gets closer to the others, we'll have a strong 5.

Chrystee Bradley beat the former master's record on the course (Melissa Marsted 39:32 when she ran for SBRR, 2006) with a 39:08...unfortunately so did two others, but great job regardless.
Susie Adams also had a stand out performance with a HUGE PR at 40:55, 4th overall.

Gary Clancy keeps getting better with age (not just age graded, but outright!) runs 47:25 for a huge PR and first in his age group!!

Tamara Berndt had a Great new PR as well at 50:28!

Congrats to all.

NEW SBRR SHIRTS!!


Hi All, Joe and Nick at SBRunning Co were generous enough along with Adidas to provide us with these great tech shirts! We have a limited # and it's first come first served.

SATURDAY PRACTICE 8/14/10

Hi All, We are meeting at the Montessori School on Fairview across from the Goleta Public Library tomorrow at 6:30am.

Good Luck to those racing McConnell's on Sunday!

PR Note: although belated, CONGRATS to Rob Olson who had a big pr at the 1/2 marathon distance last week in 1:42. (even better, it was at altitude!)

SAT 7/24/10 PRACTICE

Hi All, Practice is at Goleta Beach Parking lot (enter and park on left near restaurant) at 6:30am. Neither Mike nor I will be at practice tomorrow. We both apologize. Here is the group break down according to pace. Remember, if we write your schedule, stick to the total mileage written down. All Marathon groups whether you are St.George, Santa Barbara, Chicago, Portland etc...are doing only 4miles at YOUR MARATHON PACE, NO FASTER. For many of you this will be easy.

If we don't write your schedule, make tomorrow between 12-14 miles total...unless you are just beginning and if so, make it total 9-11miles depending on how you feel.

Below is an incomplete list of pace groups with a **highlighted team captain of each. Team Captains, please make sure you assemble your individual pace groups and announce your pace group before starting so new people don't feel lost. THANK YOU!

SATURDAY 7/17/10 PRACTICE

Hi All,
We are meeting at the intersection of Mountain Drive and Gibralter at 6:30am tomorrow.
We should have a large group with some new comers so please introduce yourselves to anyone new and welcome them.

Those training for the St.George Marathon 12 weeks from now....your workout (after the warm up) will be 3miles (to the 3mile mark on Mountain Dr) at Predicted Marathon Pace (NO FASTER), then jog slowly back to the 2mile mark, take 2more minutes break then run 10-15sec faster/mile from mile #2 past the start down the hill a mile for your 3rd mile.

Others will either do 2x3miles (#1 at Marathon pace, 10min jog, #2 at tempo effort...10-15sec/mile faster) OR beginners/those not ready yet for such a long workout, will do only the first 3miles at Predicted Marathon Pace.

Mike and I will split those we write schedules for into pace groups as usual.

See you tomorrow!

Friday, July 9, 2010

SATURDAY 7/10/10 PRACTICE

Hi All, we are meeting at San Marcos Hs (Turnpike Entrance) tomorrow at 6:30am. We will be doing a 4mile tempo on the Pebble Hill Loop. We are going to have some fun with finding your threshold effort, so please no wearing watches or GPS during the threshold portion of the run.
We'll get your overall time at the end of the 4 miler, but no paying attention to pace...effort only. Mike and I will be running past you telling you "too fast" or "too slow" to help you find the right effort if you are unsure.

See you tomorrow,
Rusty and Mike

p.s. we'll be giving away some more GuBrew powder if you need/want some

BELATED BIG CONGRATS TO TAMARA AND PATTY B!!

I'm sure everyone knows by now how well Tamara and Patty did last week in the Coeur d alene Ironman Triathlon (first one for both of them).....they truly did a fantastic job....Tamara was 13:56:44 and Patty 11:53:35!! Congrats to both....your coaches couldn't be more proud of your accomplishments.

Saturday 7/3/10

Hi All, this week we are using the SBAA's Semana Nautica 15K as our workout whether you are racing it or using it as your tempo run....if using it as your tempo run, then run the middle 5miles at tempo effort with first 2miles at easy effort and last 2 miles easy and kick in the last .3 (15K =9.3miles) to look like a star:)

However, those that are not here on the 4th, I'll be leading a low key easy run Saturday at Ellwood Shores 6:30am.

People that Rusty coaches (writes schedules for) that are not racing Sunday, you are to just run your easy mileage tomorrow. We'll be ramping it up shortly so enjoy it:)

ONE MORE THING, IF YOU ARE RUNNING THE ST.GEORGE MARATHON IN JUST OVER 13 WEEKS, WILL YOU PLEASE COMMENT WITH YOUR NAME ON THE BLOG SO WE CAN START PLANNING OUR SATURDAY'S. THANK YOU! HAPPY 4TH!

GRANDMA'S MARATHON RESULTS

CONGRATULATIONS to DREA and TIM STRAND!! Drea ran 2:53 and Tim ran 2:44 on a hot day with 20mph headwinds! These are truly great performances and show Tim is more than capable of sub 2:40 and Drea an olympic Trials Qualifier sub 2:47...the key now however is to concentrate on improving biomechanics and getting away from the marathon for a while and improve speed at 5k and 10k distances. Far too often we tend to get stuck in the marathon after marathon cycle and then wonder why we run the same times and then get slower and injured. (hint hint :)
I mention this in this context as it's a lesson to all no matter what level runner you are.

Hi All, We had some great results today at the WC 1/2 marathon. Mike shalhoub ran a fantastic time on the hilly 1/2 course in what had to be a HUGE PR (at least 4minutes maybe 6minutes!...Mike feel free to post your former PR...GREAT JOB!). Ricky had a HUGE PR as well, Congrats! Tim Strand runs a big PR at Marathon Pace effort, not even racing! Same Goes for Drea, running very "easy" controlled marathon pace for first 6, then, according to plan A, flying the last 7+miles almost catching (30sec behind and closing fast!)

Drea's goal is an Olympic Trials Marathon qualifier in 6 weeks and she's ever so close to being ready to do it.
Tekle looks to have run a great one as well. (Is it true you were smoking only a few short years ago? Google "Priscilla Welch" and you might relate:) Actually, here you go:
