(Runner's Tribe) Athletics: Jessica Augusto targets Rosa Mota’s record in Hamburg
Jessica Augusto will have her sights set on record-breaking when she stands on the start line of the Haspa Hamburg Marathon on April 23. It’s a record with special significance for the Portuguese runner on Hamburg’s fast course because Augusto will be going for the Portuguese national record, still in the possession of Rosa Mota. The latter is a running legend, winner of the Olympic Marathon in Seoul in 1988, who set the national record of 2:23:29 in Chicago in 1985. Portugal’s tradition in producing world class women distance runners has continued but none has since succeeded in beating that time. Jessica Augusto’s participation along with a number of elite women was announced in a press conference by the Haspa Hamburg Marathon organisers today. They join an elite field which already includes Stephen Kiprotich, the men’s Olympic Marathon champion from Uganda. 13,800 runners have so far entered the race on April 23

  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.
