Congratulations to Cipriana Cuevas, who set a 23-minute PR with her 1:39:04 at this weekend's Disney Princess Half Marathon.

Ask Mr. Exercise Etiquette

Posted by:

Here is a little more from yesterday’s reprint.

Dear Mr. Exercise Etiquette: During my last 5k, my nose ran horribly and at times I found myself needing to spit or blow my nose, but it seems horribly rude. Is spitting acceptable? Need I really carry tissues with me when I run?

Signed, Spittin’ Sally

Dear Sally:Certain rules of etiquette that apply under normal circumstances are suspended while running. (No, this does not mean that you may wear white pants when running after Labor Day.) ...

Mr. Manners Says

Posted by:

Those of you who know me, realize that I am lazy and that I value proper manners. As such, I'm recycling an article that I wrote several years ago for Metro Sports Magazine. In it, I examined proper athletic etiquette. Of all the things I've written, this article generated the most emails, and I've also seen it posted in a couple of gyms. Go figure. 

I'll follow up with a few "Dear Mr. Manners" submissions in the near future as well.

The party was back in Brooklyn today, as City Coach was out in force at PPTC's Cherry Tree 10-miler. Aside from having the cutest cheering squad (including Simon, Seb, Henry and a bunch of grown ups), the team performed admirably. Nicole made her return to racing after the baby, and Lete made her return to racing after ...

No Hollywood Pt. 2 (this time with a British accent)

Posted by:

Last week I posted a video from the Chicago Marathon in which a premature celebration quite possibly changed the outcome of the race. Here's an example where a runner's arrogance clearly cost him the race. Run through the line folks. Through the line.

No Hollywood

Posted by:

Every once in a while I give the "No Hollywood" speech to out athletes. I like to remind them to run hard through the finish line and save the hooting and hollering. Do it to respect the competition, and do it to make sure you have your best finish. 

If you doubt the possible consequences, look no further than the finish of the 2007 Chicago Marathon. And from the other perspective, remember this race the next time you think you're beaten.
