They wrote, on his facebook page, the following quote:
Brad Barton is sponsored by GET AIR (wanted to make sure we thank his sponsor) broke the world record in the mile age division 45-49 with a time of 4:16.83 - the old 45-49 mile world record was 4:20.18 by John Hinton from the USA. The outdoor mile world record 45-49 is 4:16.09 set by an American as well. Think Brad should go for it????
I say, GO FOR IT, BRAD! ;)
For those of you who missed this...Lopez Lomong broke the indoor american 5k record...

Galen Rupp runs 3:50.92 in the mile at the 2013 BU Terrier Invitational in an American Record attempt at the distance. The time was the second fastest all-time by an American and the fifth fastest all-time in the world. Bernard Lagat still owns the American record with his 3:49.89.
Seth Wold at the Outdoor Retailer show ran a 4:33 mile on a treadmill that follows the Boston Marathon course (Boston Marathon Pro Form Treadmill). He ran the Heartbreak Hill mile of the course that hits a 7.2% grade!
He still has it! :)

If you’re in pain, there's a temptation to skip exercising. But exercise can often help reduce pain and improve your quality of life.
That doesn’t mean it’s easy. The good news is that you don’t have to run a marathon to get back to the business of life.
“Everybody can do something,” says Perry Fine, MD, a board member at the American Pain Foundation. Exercise "does actually allow people not only to reduce their perception of pain but to overcome limited functioning.”
Just remember to pace yourself and consult a physical therapist for advice. Here are 10 types of exercise that can help get you moving.

I liked this so I'm posting it...it comes from http://goodformrunning.com/
We had our meeting today and the room was full of positive energy! We have a lot of work to do, but it's looking like we'll have some fantastic clothing to sell, soon! Keep on watching for these deals to come...I've created a page http://www.zrunning.com/zoutlet.html where we'll be posting the deals.
We're meeting tomorrow with a clothing company to talk business. We're planning on taking on some of their last year's model clothing they have in stock to see if there is a way to bring less expensive clothing to our area. We'll also be looking at selling some of their current styles.
So far this venture has been small and we've been exploring our options, but we're now taking this to a new level and we're excited about the possibilities. We are wondering what types of things YOU would like us to carry? We're thinking about carrying a clothing line, energy gels, Altra Shoes (already are doing this), some ear buds for runners (that don't fall out), running belts for water and other things, and possibly some running lights. What are your thoughts? Is it all about price or would you like to see some quality as well??
