Wendy Jaehn & Matthew Lavine
June 2011 AOTM

Wendy Jaehn
 
 
 
In her first attempt at running the marathon distance, Wendy Jaehn placed a remarkable third place at the 2011 Wisconsin Marathon earning podium honors and raising eyebrows from Kenosha to Chicago.

Coming from a shorter distance collegiate background, her marathon success may come as a surprise, but she's hardly an unknown. Jaehn's Chicago introduction occurred months earlier when she was named as the new president of the Chicago Area Runners Association. Her relative marathon victory simply adds to her already impressive resume.

 "I'd been with CARA for six months and I hadn't run a marathon. I wanted to race in one to experience CARA's marathon training program and most of our members have raced in a marathon. It was my goal to do it, so I hopped into our winter marathon program."

Now that she's conquered the marathon distance and even grabbed bronze in her attempt, here's to hoping she gives it another go.



Matthew Lavine
 
 
 
A runner who appreciates longer distances, Matthew Lavine of Crystal Lake, Ill. is an experienced ultra marathoner and highly acclaimed marathoner with a laundry list of top ten finishes across the country. His most recent finish, a 2:47:07 second place finish at the Wisconsin Marathon should be taken with a grain of salt. You see, it was actually his second marathon of three in a four-week period and the second in consecutive weekends. One wonders what his time would have looked like if he decided to rest.

"By the time I got to the end [of the Wisconsin Marathon] I was more tired than anything else. I know that's an entirely cliché thing to say, but it's true. The feeling I had crossing the finish line more than anything was relief."

Despite his crazed marathon schedule (or, more likely, because of it) Lavine is quick to recommend that marathoners, especially newbies, value their rest as much as their mileage. "Take your training seriously, but take your rest seriously too. It's an essential element of your training."

In response to the stemetant that some West Shore Road residents do not want a bike path across their driveway..In that case I assume you and your neighbors will not mind flipping the estimated 30 million dollar bill to prevent the road from washing away? Why should I pay for your road that I am not welcome on? Heavens forbid I bike by in a bike lane on my silent, non-polluting road bike. What seems very implied and apparent from your comment is that you do not want to share your million dollar views with non-WSRoad residents. My spandex and heavy breathing might tarnish the beauty of the area . Even worse maybe someone will bike by speaking Spanish! The impact on the neighborhood and environment could be disastrous!!! If that is the case I do not want to share my public roads and tax dollars with you. Privatize the road, replace it yourself, or let it wash out to sea. Until then, please pass me on my bike when SAFE. That means not on a bend, not squeezing between me and oncoming traffic, and not doing 20MPH over the speed limit. If this adds 1-5 minutes to your commute than too bad it is the law. Check the NYS traffic law website and you will find many of the bike passes committed on Shore Road are illegal and punishable by ticketing. http://itzluzaga.com [urlhttp://gpvglfq.com]gpvglfq[/url] [linkhttp://mterdsqfqc.com]mterdsqfqc[/link]

I don't think I wrote out my workout very clrleay! I ran a total of 6.5 miles and it probably took me 55 minutes or so. Within the 6.5 miles, I ran 25 minutes at tempo pace. I don't take Max running. He doesn't really like to go on runs. He will hike for a long time though! We only let him off his leash if there are not people around. He gets too excited and sometimes jumps on people, so he is usually on his leash.

Amazon has it for $10 more, but if you compare shnppiig it may be equal, and Amazon is of course a reputable seller with a decent return policy.Yes, the external reservoir is due to the narrower shaft diameter.One of the major obstacles in producing a hydraulic height adjust post in a 27.2 millimetre diameter is the space limitation for hydraulic fluid, valves, pistons, shafts etc, while maintaining proper wall thicknesses of the components to ensure performance safety and durability, explains Rick Taylor of Kind Shock.The i7r makes this all possible by utilizing a patent pending external reservoir system. By housing the oil volume in this reservoir the shaft wall thickness (is) maintained at optimal specification while still offering ideal oil volume for flawless performance.The Supernatural 272 is an updated model of this same design.
