I started running again after having my first child in July of last year. I ran my first 5K a month and a half ago in 25:34. I live in Minneapolis and am in training to run the Grandma's half marathon later this summer in Duluth, MN.

I'm the only ASF Alumni that I know of in the Twin Cities. If you are ever in town, let me know and I can give you some tips on great running trails.

Cheers,
Lilly (`95)

    Gilberto: I am not a runner but I live in San Diego. Besides the fact that there are lots of alumnis from the Americano living here, I already know of a couple of others coming in in June to run the Rock n roll marathon.
    Anyone planning on coming to the rock n roll marathon let me know. I may plan a mini reunion here if many do come in from out of town.

    I'm not a runner, but I thought you guys would get a kick out of this... It's from A Word A Day (http://wordsmith.org/awad/):

    fartlek (FART-lek) noun

    A method of training, originally developed for runners, that involves intense activity interspersed with low effort. For example, sprinting and walking.

    [From Swedish fart (speed) + lek (play).]

      "They also work fartlek training into their practices, which involves jogging with running intervals around the track. On the command of their coach, Matt Adams, the Hawks will sprint for short intervals, or occasionally drop and do push-ups."

    Rick Freeman and Todd Jacobson, Urbana's Boys Go The Distance, The Washington Post, Nov 16, 2000.

    "Within a single fartlek session you can also vary the duration of the fast bursts."
    Lisa Ondieki, Speed Kills Training Boredom, The Sunday Mail (Brisbane, Australia), Jul 1, 2001.

    Hola a todos!

    I am sure most of you received an e-mail from the American School about a new magazine.

    Please rest assured that all the information of the Alumni Gazette will be included in our new magazine (we’re going from 36 to 48 pages), along with other sections such as:

    · Articles of general interest (written by Staff, Alumni, Parents, Faculty or Students)

    · Interviews (Our first issue has 2 great interviews with alumni)

    · Information on the Annual Giving Campaign and Donations – (I bet you didn’t know most donors are…. Yes! ALUMNI) Find out where your money is going – either the security plan or Financial Aid this year.

    · The ASF Past, Present & Future


    Although some people have expressed their doubts about our new publication, I can tell you it’s being worked on with great care, with marketing, design and editorial specialists.

    Some people may wonder….
    “Why should I care about students, teachers, staff, etc.?”
    “Why would a parent care when my Class is having its reunion?”

    It’s very simple… We are all part of the ASF Community!

    Our first issue is programmed to come out in October, so you still have time to send in anecdotes, news, photos, etc.

    Un abrazo a todos

    Gilberto, by any chance did you get to run Father's day half marathon in Mexico City? I made it in 1:45 (1:47 is what is posted), in my last Marathon I crossed the halfway mark at 1:44... which means that I am still in a preparation stage or running closer to sea level when I ran the marathon was the cause or perhaps this last race's course, with it's more than a 100 meter climb in the second half.

    Gilberto, isn't White Rock Marathon in december? That was my first Marathon back in '96. Running does do great things for you, specially keeping you in weight and being more concious about what you eat. Take a peek at how I looked back in '94. www.angelfire.com/trek/wolfe ,the trick is not only losing weight but keeping it off.

    Welcome Gilberto! Are you planning to run the Suzuki Rock N Roll Marathon? I've done that one twice. Its a good course.

    I did my first fun in months this morning. Very slow and I am already sore. Its one of those things that if you don't keep at it you fall apart.

    I did three miles in over 35 minutes. Yikes!

    Hola,

    Just got word on this specific page. I graduated in 1983. Not exactly a fast runner but do enjoy it very much. I am an OB-Gyn, not that it matters very much but, physiology was part of my training, and hhave had the pleasure of incorporating what little I know to my daily runs, and it is fasinating. I will be running in San Diego on June 2, until a week ago I was only planning on doind 21k, but spirit and motivation have tempted me and I am going for the 42k.

    Living in Mexico city has it´s small advantages and one of them is that I get to practice at high altitudes, and then get to race at sea level.

    Any way, keep running. At least it gets my mind of anything temting.
