PORTLAND, OREGON (USA): Shalane Flanagan has one goal for the Berlin Marathon on September 28: the U.S. record, reports RunnersWorld.com. The current mark, set by Deena Kastor, in London (2006) is 2:19:36. Flanagan will have two designated pacemakers to help her attack the record, which has stood since 2006. "I'm going to do everything I can get the record," said the 33 year old, who set her PB of 2:22:02 in Boston this year.
The Saucony 500 Mile Challenge is in it's sixth week now. The three key workouts are the long run on Sunday, the tempo run on Tuesday and the hill workout on Thursday.

Cross country is one of the oldest parts of our sport. It started in the mid 18th century in England with the hounds and harriers idea. A lead runner, the hound, would put out pieces of paper as a trail and the harriers would follow, for perhaps six to nine miles. History does not tell us, but my guess some eating and drinking was involved after.
Cross country is a global sport. In 2014, over 500,000 boys and girls will race cross country in the fifty states. How wil you do? How will your team do? You have to train in the summer to race well in the fall!
