  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.

Racing Heart: A Runner's Journey of Love, Loss and Perseverance Racing Heart: A Runner's Journey of Love, Loss and Perseverance
By Kate Mihevc Edwards
What do you do when you’re forced to give up the thing you love?
Kate Mihevc Edwards was a passionate runner for years and lived for endurance sports. Until the day doctors told her she’d have to stop—or possibly die. After being diagnosed with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), Kate was forced to mourn the loss of a lifestyle she loved and face a very scary question: What now?
With the grit and determination that made her such an accomplished runner, Kate embarked on a journey that taught her to let go of her former self and claim a new life filled with strength, gratitude, and peace. Racing Heart is Kate’s testament to this journey as she walks readers through her transition from a runner eager to finish the race to a woman who values the preciousness of the present.
Written for anyone facing a major life change or hungering for a life beyond the mundane, Racing Heart is the inspirational reminder that it is often from the most painful experiences that true joy and passion emerge.
