By Rick Platt

It was good news-bad news-good news for the Colonial Road Runners and the 2012 William and Mary Homecoming Run 5K.

The first good news was that, after an absence of over 10 years, the William and Mary men’s and women’s cross country teams are hosting the Colonial Athletic Association Cross Country Championships that they’ve dominated through the years, to be held on the Eastern State Hospital course on Saturday, October 27, over the W&M Homecoming Weekend. The last time W&M hosted the CAA meet was in 2001.

The CAA championship cross-country races will start at 10 a.m. (women’s 6,000 meters) and 11 a.m. (men’s 8,000 meters) on Saturday, Oct. 27. There will be a W&M alumni tent set up on the course, 50 meters from the starting line, offering food and hot beverages. The W&M men are defending CAA team champions.

The bad news was that, due to conference championship administrative guidelines, no outside groups are able to use a CAA championship site for another event prior to the CAA races, and after extensive discussion of alternatives, Lafayette High School head cross country coach Craig Wortman was forced to cancel this year’s William and Mary Homecoming Run 5K, which originally was scheduled to be held on the same Eastern State Hospital cross country course earlier in the morning.

The CRR had hoped to run their Homecoming Run 5K at 8 a.m. on the ESH cross country course, and to have the CRR runners stay around after they finish, to watch the two CAA championship races, but that was not possible, as the CAA pre-race warm-up period started at 8:30 a.m., and the CAA’s women’s 6K course and the men’s 8K course would be different than the CRR’s 5K race, with different fencing and signage. There would also be issues with parking and traffic conflicts between the two events.

Wortman and the Colonial Road Runners also considered a late Friday afternoon race (not possible due to the Friday course-familiarization period for the CAA’s), a Saturday afternoon race (not appropriate since the W&M alumni would already be at the Homecoming football game), a Sunday race (that day not allowed by the James City County schools for any athletic events), a return to the on-campus road 5K for the W&M Homecoming Run (Wortman tried, but encountered the same hurdles with the W&M administration about parking, traffic control and facilities that forced the move to the Eastern State Hospital location in 2011), or for another venue on Saturday morning, specifically the Warhill 5K road-and-trail course a couple miles away (that would really not have any connection with W&M and the Homecoming Weekend theme). Reluctantly, Wortman made the inevitable decision to cancel the Homecoming 5K race for 2012. Since the CAA conference cross country championships rotate among the CAA schools, the conflict should only occur every once in a decade.

Lafayette High’s Wortman, the Homecoming 5K race director, said, “We are sorry to say that the W&M Homecoming 5K will not be held this year. Unfortunately, we have been unable to resolve a conflict about the date and location of our event. William and Mary won a bid to host the CAA Cross Country Championships at Eastern State Hospital on October 27, and we cannot host our races at the same time. We encourage you to watch the CAA event and/or attend another local race on the 27th. We look forward to hosting the Homecoming race again next year.”

But the final good news is that the Colonial Road Runners were able to find a replacement event for the 18-race 2012 Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix Series, reaching agreement recently with Flat-Out Events and the third annual Christmas Town Dash 8K, scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 2, starting at 8:30 a.m., at Busch Gardens . That event attracted 2,264 runners and walkers last year, second only to the Run for the Dream Half Marathon and 8K, as the largest running event ever held in Williamsburg . Coincidentally, the two previous overall winners of the Christmas Town Dash 8K have been W&M cross country alumni, course-record holder Adam Otstot in 2011, and Skeeter Morris in 2010.

Jason Todd, executive director of Flat-Out Events, welcomed the affiliation with the CRR, saying, “Flat-Out Events is very excited for the 2012 Christmas Town Dash 8K. We are anticipating this year to be our largest runner turnout yet, Busch Gardens will be spectacular as always, and the fact that it is now a part of the Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix makes it that much more special.” The 8K race will start at 8:30 a.m., Sunday, Dec. 2 at the Busch Gardens toll plaza. For additional details on entering the 8K, visit the race website at: The event also includes the Running of the Chick-fil-A Cows, a half-mile family fun run at 8 a.m.

To welcome the Colonial Road Runners to their Christmas Town Dash 8K event this year as a CRR Grand Prix event, executive director Jason Todd and the Flat-Out Events crew have offered a special $5 race entry discount exclusive to Colonial Road Runners members. To get that discount CRR members must enter by mail, and must use the full-page entry form (available on the CRR website, at upcoming CRR and Peninsula Track Club races, and at Colonial Sports ( 513 Prince George St . , Williamsburg ). To get that $5 discount, write “CRR” on the entry forms down where you select the race that you are running. This discount is not available for the online entry.

The regular entry fees are $40 (postmarked through Oct. 31), $45 (postmarked Nov. 1-24), $50 (Nov. 25-Dec. 1) and $50 (during packet pick-up). The special CRR member mail-in discount rates will be $35 (postmarked through Oct. 31) and $40 (postmarked Nov. 1-24). Entries should not be mailed after Nov. 24th.

Also, since this is a Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix race, the Christmas Town Dash 8K will have a special competitive race-walking category, but entrants must write “race walk” on the entry form where the 8K event is selected. All competitive race walkers will start together at the front of the second corral of participants (they will all be assigned to that second group).

There have been precedents for replacement races to occur on the Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix race schedule. In 2010 the Ford’s Colony 5K Run for the Heritage Humane Society was canceled several months before that scheduled race, and was replaced by the Run for the Hills 10K (formerly known as the Breast Health 10K). A number of current CRR Grand Prix races started out as independent or non-CRR Grand Prix events for their first year(s), then were incorporated into the CRR Grand Prix schedule the following year, including the Walsingham Academy 5K, the Salute to the Military “Red, White and Blue” 5K, the Sweatin’ for Scholarships 5K, and the Crapolfest 5K. The original suggestion about using the Christmas Town Dash 8K as a replacement CRR Grand Prix race came from CRR race-walking champion Tom Gerhardt.

The W&M Homecoming Run started out as simply a group run from the Wren Building , down Duke of Gloucester Street, to the Capitol Building and back. After a few years it evolved into a competitive 5K race from the W&M Student Recreation Center . This year, as a retro replacement event, the Colonial Road Runners will again hold an un-timed, non-competitive group run (no timers, no digital clock, no CRR finish line crew), starting in front of the Wren Building at 8 a.m., Saturday, Oct. 27th, and running the traditional DOG Street route to the Capitol Building and back. Those wanting to run longer can add a loop around campus, and still have plenty of time to drive to the CAA championship races at 10 a.m., three miles away at Eastern State Hospital . The CRR’s Brenda Mitchell will be the starter for the group run from in front of the Wren Building . Parking for this group run can be anywhere in the nearby Merchants Square parking lots. For further details on the W&M Homecoming group run, visit the CRR website at
There will be two additional Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix event for the 2012 series, besides the Christmas Town Dash 8K. Entry forms, course maps and additional information for each can be found on the Colonial Road Runners website:

Interview: Ed Moran, professional runner

Author’s note:  I decided to interview “stars” of local running, so that I might share what I learn a bit from them, and to share that with our fellow runners.  This month, I’ve interviewed one of our areas all-time greats.  Ed Moran recently moved to Northern Virginia, but his William & Mary roots will doubtless see him visit us again.  Daniel A. Shaye, DC

RD (Running Dog):  What's the best performance you've had in the past 3 years (distance & time)?
EM:  Track:  13:20.25 5K, 27:43.13 10K.  Road:  28:19 10K (US 10K Champion), Marathon  2:11:46

RD:  What excites and motivates you to train? To race? To seek PR's? To win?
EM:  All three motivate me.  I train and race because I want to test the limits of my potential.  I strive to push the envelope and achieve results that at one time I thought were impossible. 

RD:  How many miles per week do you typically run?
EM:  My mileage fluctuates throughout the season and is dependent on which event/s I’m training for – 3K, 5K, 10K, or marathon.  My “in-season” mileage totals can range anywhere between 65 and 130 miles per week.

RD:  How long was your longest run last year?
EM:  Not counting the marathon, my longest run was a ~ 25 mile (2:25) training run.

RD:  How many times do you race each year?
EM:  Traditionally, I race 10-12 times a year.

RD:  Do you do speed work? If so, how often?
EM:  The amount of “speed work” I do depends on which event/s I’m training for and where I am within a training cycle.  While training for the 5/10K, I do what I would classify as “speed work,” on average, every 6-8 workout sessions, with these sessions being weighted towards the end of a cycle.  Besides “speed work,” I do strides twice a week to maintain fast twitch muscle recruitment and to preserve muscle/soft tissue elasticity.

RD:  Do you work on your form?
EM:  Form work- walking and running drills- is great for developing greater strength, flexibility, and alance.  Working on your form not only makes you a more efficient runner, it helps with maintaining good posture and mechanics late in races, when you start to fatigue.

RD:  Do you take a rest day (day off from running)?
EM:  In the past, I took a day totally off every week.  Now I take a day off about every two weeks.  During that day off, I usually go out for a bike ride, unless I’m really banged up.

RD:  Do you stretch? If so, how often and for how long?  Do you feel it makes a difference, one way or another?  How important is flexibility to your ability to perform?
EM:  Honestly, I don’t stretch often.  I stretch if I have an issue (i.e. tendonitis), but for the most part rely on drills to maintain dynamic flexibility.

RD:  If you lift weights (resistance exercise), how often? Do you ever do resistance training for your legs, or just upper body/core?
EM:  I no longer lift weights.

RD:  Do you cross train? If so, how often? Doing what?
EM:  I cross train on my days off, if I’m injured, or when I need a mental break from running.  Biking is my preferred cross training activity.

RD:  Do you train solo, or with others? What effects-- either positive or negative-- do your training partners (or lack thereof) have on your progression?
EM:  I train by myself.  For me I think training alone is the ideal training situation.  Training alone forces me to remain mentally tough and focused.  Also, training alone ensures I don’t run beyond my current fitness, increasing injury risk.

RD:  How important is sleep/rest to your routine?  Do you nap?
EM:  I can’t stress the importance of adequate sleep for effective training enough.  Without adequate sleep, your body can’t recover and adapt to the stresses of training.  I sleep 8-10 hours every night and take a nap during the more intense phases of my training cycles.

RD:  What action do you take when you feel a soreness or impending injury?
EM:  It really depends on the location and intensity of the soreness.   Over the years, I’ve learned which aches and pains I can run through and which ones I can’t mess with.

RD:  Have you been injured (unable to run) in the past year? If so, approximately how many days of running did you lose? What did you learn from the experience(s), i.e. what advice would you give?
EM:  I suffered two injuries that forced me to take time off.  The first injury, which occurred in the spring, forced me to take off about 3 weeks.  The second injury, which I suffered in August, forced me to take off 7-10 days.  All I can suggest is listen to your body and don’t try to intensify your training too quickly.  Though it’s OK to be a calculated risk taker with your training, it’s not wise to be greedy and overly aggressive.

RD:  What's the worst/most embarrassing mistake or error you've made before, during, or after a race?
EM:  The most regrettable mistake I made during a race occurred during the 2008 Olympic Trials 10,000m final.  Around the 5K point, I allowed a gap to form between myself and the top three.  I over-estimated my ability to close and missed making the Olympic Team by one place.

RD:  Do you set goals for the year? How do you set goals? How important is having goals and milestones to your success?
EM:  I do set yearly goals.  I usually come up with tiered goals and discuss them with my coach early in the year.  I try to develop a list of goals with different levels of difficulty and duration, so I possess a roadmap for future success.  Though my goal setting is not really a formal process, I believe it’s an incredible important exercise.  Having goals, especially “publicly stated goals, help keep you motivated and provide checkpoints on your progress.   

RD:  What's the single greatest thing holding you back from the next level of fitness/competition?
EM:  If I could figure this out it wouldn’t be holding me back.  But seriously, I would say injuries are the greatest things that hold me back.  Once or twice a year I’m faced with an injury that slows my progression.   

Watch for Ed to challenge again for top 10 (or better) at the 2012 ING New York City Marathon.

Run For The Hills Update

By Rick Platt
The combined ages of the men’s and women’s overall winners in Saturday’s third annual Run for the Hills 10K—Steve Chantry of Williamsburg and Mercedes Castillo-D’Amico of Newport News—was 112 years, both setting all-time records for the oldest runners ever to win a Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix race. In contrast, the combined ages of the women’s runner-up finisher and the men’s fifth-place overall finisher, twins Grace Carlson and John Carlson of Signal Mountain , TN , was an equally remarkable 28 years.

In between those extremes, there were many excellent performances at the race, known in its first two years as the Run for Breast Health 10K, and which had 310 finishers in the 10K on Saturday. There were an additional 52 finishers in the one mile fun run/walk. The races were organized by, and benefited, Beyond Boobs, Inc. of Williamsburg , the women’s breast cancer awareness organization.

Chantry, 57, won his second consecutive Grand Prix race, extending his all-time record as the oldest male runner to win a CRR Grand Prix race. Chantry was timed in 37:37 to best Craig Connors, 39, of Williamsburg by six seconds (37:43) with Greg Dawson, 47, of Williamsburg third overall (38:01). Chantry had also won the Sept. 15 Salute to the Military “Red, White and Blue 5K” at Cheatham Annex, by 11 seconds. In that race Dawson also had placed third overall.

Castillo-D’Amico, who celebrated her 55th birthday on Sept. 24th to move into a new age group, similarly broke the CRR record for the oldest female runner ever to win a Grand Prix race, but in her case, it was her first-ever win in a CRR event. In 2011 and 2012, the CRR Grand Prix has been dominated by the battle between Karen Terry (2011 champion) and Jennifer Quarles (six-time champion) for the overall title, those two having won every 2011 or ‘12 race except for two by Renee High, and one each by Laura Shannon and Heidi Peterson. Castillo-D'Amico ran a 43:13 to best precocious 14-year-old Grace Carlson, of Signal Mountain, TN by 40 seconds (43:53), with Debbie McLaughlin, 46, of Williamsburg third overall (44:31).

The twin brother of Grace Carlson—John Carlson, 14, of Signal Mountain —was fifth overall for the men with a remarkable time of 39:30. The siblings both run varsity cross country for Baylor School in Chattanooga . John (fourth on his high school varsity cross country team) has a 5K best of 17:58, while Grace (1st on her girls' varsity team) has a PR of 19:41. John bettered his previous 10K best by 45 seconds, while Grace bettered her 10K PR by three minutes. Their family, including parents Gary and Mary, were on fall break, and were visiting Busch Gardens and Williamsburg .

Race five-year age-group records were broken by Chantry (men 55-59), Connors (men 35-39), John Carlson (men 14-and-under), Castillo-D’Amico (women 55-59), Grace Carlson (women 14-and-under), McLaughlin (women 45-49), along with Tim Collins, 51, of Williamsburg (men 50-54, 41:51), Robert Wright, 71, of Hampton (men 70-and-over, 53:04), Tom Gerhardt, 61, of Chesapeake (men’s race walk, 1:02:10), and Louise Sharer, 60, of Williamsburg (women 60-64, 56:59).

The race course started on the service road next to the Sanford B. Wanner Stadium in the Warhill Sports Complex, had an out-and-back portion to Warhill High School, then a second out-and-back portion on the service road and sports complex bike path, with a complete counterclockwise loop of the scenic, gravel-and-dirt, but hilly Warhill Nature Trail. Both the 10K and the accompanying one mile fun run finished on the 20-yard line of the James City County Stadium.

Run for the Hills 10K

by Rick Platt

Steve Chantry, 57, of Williamsburg won his second consecutive Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix race, extending his all-time record as the oldest male runner to win a Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix race. Chantry was timed in 37:37 to best Craig Connors, 39, of Williamsburg by six seconds (37:43) with Greg Dawson, 47, of Williamsburg third overall (38:01).

The same thing happened for the women as Mercedes Castillo-D'Amico, 55, of Newport News was the oldest female runner ever to win a CRR Grand Prix race. It was also her first CRR victory. Castillo-D'Amico ran a 43:13 to best precocious 14-year-old Grace Carlson, 14, of Signal Mountain, TN by 40 seconds (43:53), with Debbie McLaughlin, 46, of Williamsburg third overall (44:31).

The twin brother of Grace Carlson, John Carlson, age 14, of Signal Mountain, TN was fifth overall in the race with a remarkable time of 39:30. They both run varsity cross country for Baylor School in Chattanooga, TN. John (4th on his high school varsity cross country team) has a 5K best of 17:58, while Grace (1st on the girls' varsity team) has a 5K best of 19:41.

There were 310 finishers in the 10K run/walk, organized by and benefiting Beyond Boobs, Inc. of Williamsburg, the women's breast cancer awareness organization.
