Greetings, everyone! Results are in from the Run for the Pie 10K (or should I say 2π M?) on Saturday. Since this was a Grand Prix race, Grand Prix standings have been updated accordingly. Congrats to all who ran in that blazing heat!
To improve steeplechasers.org website performance, starting tomorrow morning, Thursday July 27, I will be moving the website from godaddy to the DigitalOcean server which hosts scoretility. I plan to leave the current service live so people can view the website during the transition.
To prevent store purchases on godaddy during the transition, I will disable the payment gateway so no one will be able to check out their purchases. I will also disable the new "Add Event" feature we've provided so local race directors can add their own events. There will be a message at the top of each page indicating this transition is taking place, and that the store and Add Event are unavailable. There will also be an announcement post about what is occurring.
Once you see that message at the top of the page and announcement post disappear, this will mean you have access to the website on the new server. ... See MoreSee Less

Did this last year and highly recommend it. If you love countryside runs this will be one of your favorites. So cheap and great food and goodies. No potties out on the course though so bring your own TP. Shirts are separate price.
So bummed I had to throw out the rest of the pie because there was mold on it and it wasn't just in one spot it was in a couple spots so wasn't about to chance it 😩 . I had it wrapped up in the fridge. I took a bite before noticing it so hopefully I don't get sick LOL , and by bite I mean like a whole slice.

It's not a typical track but FCC has a paved loop and I do speed work on it. One of the loops is just over a quarter mile.
Brunswick is usually open in the summer
We ran on the Oakdale Sunday
I will check out Oakdale
Middletown middle is always open
Not sure where you'll be coming from, but MSD has a track on their campus in Frederick that I have used a couple of times (it's over behind the "Harmon Field Playground" as I'm looking in google maps; at the end of Clarke Place). If you're out near Washington County, the Boonsboro track is also always open as well.
We are at Oakdale almost every night and it is always open. You may have to enter to the right of the stadium towards the baseball fields
Following. I have a couple that work fairly well, but as I only wear one earbud while running, the wire can tug on the one that's in. Anyone have any suggestions for sweat/rain resistant single earbud with Bluetooth connection.
Johnny B Leonardis just showed me ones that have come out recently designed to mount in front of your ears rather than plugging your ears. They sound great and were comfortable, but best of all, they allowed you to still hear what's going on around you. Don't remember the brand name, but you can check them out at If the Shoe Fits/Charm City Running.
Just let "eye of the tiger" play over and over again in your head. Problem solved.
Love my Yurbuds
I have JBL wireless they are the ones that go over the ear. I usually run with one in and the other one just around the ear not in and it doesn't flop around and I can hold a conversation or hear what's going on around me. I've had them since the beginning of the year with some rainy and lately very sweaty runs. They hold their charge for a long time now.. I got mine at Target
Plantronics are great. Last at least 8 hours and the sound is great.
I love the beats ! Never had any problem with them . Plus the sound is fantastic
PowerBeats3 by Dre are awesome. I found them cheaper on Amazon.
Wow. Nice job Wendy. Looking good Azhar. It was a hot one today.
Great job you picked a tuff one to start
Way to go Wendy. Earlier this month she completed her first 5K at the Indy 5000!! Way to go girl!! Thanks Azhar for talking her into doing this and sticking with her. Now rest up and enjoy your well deserved pie.
Great Job Wendy! If you can do this 10k you can conquer anything!
Awesome job Wendy! This is was a super tough race but you did it!
Wow, Wendy! That was a tough race! Good job with your training, keep up the good work! 🏃♀️😊🏃♀️
Way to go, Wendy!
Good for you! Now I know why you weren't at Baker Park this morning. I hope you love the pie you took home!
That's am amazing accomplishment. Last years Pie race nearly did me in- and I was training for a Marathon.
Well done Wendy!
Great job Wendy! You're one tough runner!
Congratulations Wendy 👏🏻
Yeah Wendy. You were amazing and you should be so proud of yourself.
Way to go Wendy!!!
Congratulations Wendy! Doing 10K on a hilly route in mid-summer heat is something 90% of the population wouldn't do. Welcome to the community of long distance runners!
Thank you for all your help. You were wonderulf
Actually a 10.1K. This was extended to 2π miles at Syble Roane's suggestion!
I am not sure about Frederick County but Seneca Creek State Park allows dogs on leash and they have an area near the big tire playground (if facing the playground from parking lot look left) that you can walk through the open field and it's like a little beach. I took my dog there a few weeks ago
YES, THANK YOU TO ALL THE VOLUNTEERS! Extra kudos go to Lib Rood and Bill Susa for meeting me at 6:00am and helping with the whole event and to Stephanie Ottavan for doing a great job in her first experience as the official timer, and to Steve Whalen who is gaining a great reputation for being volunteered by his wife Kimberly Whalen! Steve not only served as a course marshall, but he also picked up all the course markers for me after the race!
What a great event!!
I've been a Steeplechasers 19 years and this is the 1st ti.e I've run this race. Loved it
well done Steeps... i know you all melted.....
Huge thank you to Lib Rood and Mark Lawrence and all the volunteers who made it happen. We had a great time because of what you put into it. 👍👏👏👏
Thanks again Mark-you are an awesome guy & Steep! Lib, it was great seeing you & you got your workout in!! Bill, thanks for the blueberry treat! Steve, you were picking up the cones so expertly as you were maneuvering the car & politely waving other cars around you! To the water stop folks, turnaround folks, and the gentlemen at the Mountaindale Rd. spot-Thank You!
Also, Stephanie-thank you for timing-now you know-Mark will be counting on you!! Just kidding!!
Who ever got those porta potties that was nice! Thank you all for putting it on!
Congrats go to everyone that braved this on a steamy morning. Special congrats to Louis J Schiavone and Jenny Hallberg for earning the top choices of pies! Hope you enjoy!

HELP! I'm getting ready to put on my 10th Run for the Pie 10k Saturday morning. The event is older than that. It was created by the Lowery family years before I took it on. It's simply been an event used to fill-in what used to be a down period on the running schedule. Barb Lowrie would make pies for the top finishers. 30-40 runners would come out to brave the hilly course in mid-summer heat. When I took over as RD, we changed the concept to what it is now. Everybody brings a pie and everybody leaves with a pie. Pies are picked in the order of finish. The event has grown, and some have told me it's their favorite event of the year! It now warrants the formalities of pre-registration and porta-johns, and CAR POOLING IS NECESSARY TO FIT EVERYONE! . What's missing this year that has never been a problem before are a few good volunteers. I only need about half dozen people. So far, the only thing I have covered is the water stop. WHO'S AVAILABLE TO HELP? ... See MoreSee Less
Lou and I will do race-day registration, but we need someone to hand out the bibs for pre-registered runners.
I'll take care of handing bibs out
What else besides bib's do you need help with.
I can help - what time do you need me there?
I can help. Let me know what time to be there. Also if anyone lives in the Braddock Heights/Middletown area and wants to carpool let me know
I'll jump in, Mark Lawrence. Just say the word.
I can help, let me know what you need
do you still need help?
Ok folks. Thanks for responding! Just to be clear, the half dozen volunteers I need are for the whole event, not just registration. So my request is for people who are not running. Need two early risers to meet me at 6. One to help mark the course other to start set-up and be in charge of parking. Who doesn't mind getting there early (volunteers for this could run, but I need to know if you are going to run or you're volunteering to help with the whole event).
I'll be there at 0600 for setup/parking/bib pickup.
Ok folks. I was a little worried on Wednesday, but I think we got it now! Look forward to seeing everyone Saturday morning! I can smell the pie!

Hi everyone, I bought a Garmin Vivoactive HR+ this weekend to help me track my miles and I love it! The heat today prompted me to run on the dreadmill but I decided to track my running using the Garmin too. (Selecting no GPS, indoor run before starting)
When I finished running, the Garmin indicated I had run almost 3/4 of a mile more than the dread mill did. Can anyone tell me what happened or which one is likely more accurate? ... See MoreSee Less
Your watch is accurate. It's measuring your arm swing and combining with other metrics in your profile based on personal algorithms. The treadmill is simply guessing based on how far the belt has travelled. It has no reference to your stride length, height, personal speed, etc. You'll also find, the longer you are on it, the further that gap will get from each other.
Sometimes it takes a garmin a few outdoor runs to properly measure an indoor run
Treadmill is all about time and hr anyway.
That's interesting. My Garmin is typically less than what the treadmill says.
In the same boat (but forerunner 235). I run 3 miles on treadmill which my Garmin reads as 3.6!
I'm curious too as prior to the purchase of the watch,? I was running 3 and 4 miles on the treadmill 3 times a week (long run on weekend).....so if I follow the watch mileage I'll technically be running less weekly mileage...hmmmm
I'd say it's a safe bet that the treadmill is more accurate and more consistent than a GPS watch. If I were you, I would recommend running for time instead of distance when you're on the treadmill. In other words if an outdoor 3 miler at an "easy" effort takes 30 minutes, then set your treadmill to 30 minutes and focus on keeping your effort level equal to what it would be outdoors. Also, turn up the grade 1-2 percent, this will give you a more realistic road feel.
How long does a pair of running shoes last everyone else? I usually try to make mine last a year, but even with a light training year this past year, my current pair seems done after about 10 months... ... See MoreSee Less
Usally between 300-500 miles but can tell also by fit and wear on the bottoms.
Just had this discussion myself. My asics only got just under 300 miles before I started having knee pain. Got a new pair of mizuno wave riders last Friday and the pain is gone. Here's a picture of my old asics--see how worn these are? That's a sure sign it's time to replace, regardless of how many months it is.
I think everyone's mileage varies. I usually get about 250-400 miles in mine, depending on terrain and weather (I find heat and salt in the winter can wear them down faster). But even if it's less than that, if they feel done to me, they're done.
Mine only last 300 miles. I keep track of mileage for every pair.
Back pain or knee pain is my sign it's time for a new pair.
I usually get shin splints
Mine last until the price drops on Amazon for the pair i want. So between 100-1000 and I will stockpile if I'm not ready to wear them.
Depends on the cushion/srability. My Evos and Minimuses, no cushion, have lasted about 6+ years. I have a couple of Topos with some cushion, we'll see how long they last.
I usually get at least 1,200 miles out of my trainers-- roughly the point at which the outsole has started wearing through to the midsole on the forefoot, and/or when the holes in the toebox start getting too big. Have undoubtedly gotten up to 1,500 miles with a couple pairs... Usually it's the shoe that gives up before I do!
I've never tracked the mileage on a pair of shoes, but now that everyone seems to be talking about it, maybe I will. Just doing some quick math it seems like 300-500 miles would only be like 6 months (or less if I'm training for a marathon).
Joe, it will vary from runner to runner as well as from shoe to shoe, but I think you've got it about right.
I've had mine for almost a year, I have two that I switch between. They seem like they are in pretty good shape and look like the have a lot of miles left.
I'm actually fascinated with this thread. Joe has a lot of shit to think about with his next pair of shoes .
I like to buy 2 at a time and alternate them but I usually get 300 -600 out of a pair , you can tell when you feet hurt
At least a year. 1000 milies at a minimum.
I assume you are talking about road shoes. I generally have about 3 or 4 pairs I am rotating and I used to not track miles but based it on how the outsole looked before I would retire them. I know I am getting much more than 300 miles because during high mileage training that would mean they would last less than 4 weeks. I estimate I was getting closer to 800 to 1000 miles. I starting using a phone app to track shoes and my current pair of Hoka Claytons are looking pretty bad at 450 miles.
800+ for every pair I've had.
Mine vary and I don't track miles on shoes anymore. I rotate through several different pair and change when I can really notice the difference in the midsole, or the outsole has worn through to the midsole. My longest runs are usually in the Olympus 1.5, which don't last very long. Most seem to be in the 300-600 mile range or do though.
It's about mileage 500 miles
After 250 miles on normal running shoes I can feel a difference. By 300 I can feel it in my body. I have been running on Hoka's and can get over 800 miles on them with no issues.

There is the Summer Decathlalon at 6:15pm at Brunswick High School.
There used to be a group that ran on Wednesday but idk if they still run. You can always join the FSRC group run group. Any planned runs should be posted there
I think the Monday/Wednesday group that is open to all is on hold for the moment since it is currently the Women's Distance Festival training group. Once that race is over (Aug. 5th), then I believe it opens back up to everyone. You should definitely check out the FSRC Group Runs page. It's a good resource.
Reminder: online registration for the Run for the Pie closes tomorrow night at midnight. If you think you're going to participate in this FSRC Grand Prix race, please register online (it's free for members!).

I've had really good experiences with New Market Chiropractic
When I sprained a muscle in my lower back, I saw my chiropractor and massage therapist multiple times but what ended up giving me relief from the pain and ultimately healing was muscle relaxers prescribed by a general practitioner. I waited 6 weeks to go see one and it was the most painful 6 weeks of my life.
ETA: A chiropractor friend of mine told me to be careful with back injuries. A chiro may not be the best thing if you've sprained a muscle.
I see Dr. Rao at pain and spine specialist of Maryland
The problem is I want to try them on. I went to them and did order from them, but I would like to have a selection to try on. I had to order my shoes just to try them on. I would like to be able to feel a few before committing again.
Try Dick's.. selection improving..ask for myself or Brent..25 years of technical running experience at Feet First..31 years coaching distance.. I speak the "language"
Have you considered trying on men's pairs? A women's 11 is a men's 8-10, depending on the brand. My cursory google research suggests that you should expect the heel area on a pair of men's to be a little roomier and the ball area might be a bit snug, but at least when I have tested shoes in the past, it was always the way the sole felt under me that told me immediately whether it was a pair for me or not. For example Brooks just don't feel right to me and Mizunos don't either. I suspect I'd have the same experience with women's shoes but I wear a 12 so I've never had the chance to try.
You can fit to feel and then ask the store to stock you the women's pair in the color you like. And to Michelle Mitchell's point - yes, please stay local. Many of the stores' employees are members of the club and their livelihood comes from our patronage.
New Balance on #26?
A bit of a drive - but RnJ Sports in Rockville. If you've never been you will think you are in the wrong place -as it is in a "industrial" complex on the second floor. I would call first to see if they have your shoe and approximate size. Also ask if they will order with no obligation to buy. Many running shoe stores do this. Inside Scoop - they have a "running club" where you sign up for an email (I know, I know - but they are few and far between)...but give you 20% off purchases. This is one of the primary reasons I go -- good fittings and the 20% off.
I highly recommend Run Moore in Westminster. The owner is an old neighbor of mine. I can put you in touch if you would like (but i know it's a hike).
Beckah Sivilli I wear the same size. To Evan's suggestion... I often wear mens shoes. I've always found that the mens versions of Saucony and New Balance fit well. I'm currently wearing Saucony Zealots and an old pair of New Balance 1010 trail shoes in men's.
I prefer the fit of men's shoes more then women. I've been wearing the Saucony zealot in a men's 8.5 and love them.
I'm an RnJ fan. I work in Bethesda and they are across the street from my office. Good prices. I also have clown feet!😉
Results are in for this weekend's Grand Prix race, the Catoctin 50K. Another huge congratulations to all who ran! What a joy it was to see so many of you out there and be able to witness so many humbling displays of grit, determination, and perseverance! Saturday was nothing short of tremendously inspiring!
I know the Catoctin 50K half is not part of the Grand Prix, however, it would be nice to be included in the Steeps-Only Results! I have done it 2x and a few others have too. Just saying...................
Hi, Michelle and Marti. I agree maybe we should change the terminology from "steeps only results" to "grand prix results" (which happen to only include steeplechasers).
I developed the scoretility software to score the club series like grand prix, decathlon, etc. Unfortunately there's no easy way to include results for races which are not part of these series.
Thank you Lou for explaining.
Yep, it's the same reason why we don't include Steeps results from, say, the Frederick Running Festival 5K as well as the Frederick Half results: even though both races are part of the same overarching event, they are unique races and only one of them is used in our competitive series (Equalizer, Grand Prix, etc.) calculations.
In posting the Steeps-only results for only the CAT50K, we were not trying to exclude the 1/2 CATers; it simply wasn't included in these results because the 1/2 CAT is not part of any of the Steeplechasers competitive series.
If the "Steeps-Only Results" terminology is too confusing or sounds in any way exclusive, I can change it so that I say something else when posting these results. I used "Steeps-Only Results" because I thought it was the shortest way to clearly describe what the extra set of results in my posts are.
Well maybe that should be included next year
The competition committee predetermines which races will be included in each of the series at the beginning of the new year. However, I am not sure if the 1/2 CAT is necessarily the best candidate to be included in any of the series that we currently have. As I understand it, the 1/2 CAT is limited to a certain demographic that many of our members are ineligible for; therefore, it might not be the best option for providing an equal opportunity for all members to compete.
The half is suppose to be 55 and older and/or possibly injured and can't do a whole 50k
I recently purchased a pair of Hoka running shoes in a size up from my normal size. It is definitely an adjustment from the Merrell's I was wearing (which were super minimal) I am feeling a lot of pain in the arch of my foot while running - almost like a rubbing pain and was curious to know if that is part of the breaking-in process or if maybe these shoes aren't for me. Any thoughts or input is greatly appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less

I used to love Dutch's crabcakes until I had one at Madrones. Theirs is the bomb !!!
an excellent experience.... great crab cakes and lots of other options. excellent and knowledgeable staff. the staff lnews what ypu neef before you do. great service without intrusion. great wine selection.
There is a cool small spot in Mount Airy called the Brick Ridge Inn. Very good crab cakes, lots of non-seafood choice. Todd does an excellent job.
I love the crabcake at hootch and banter!
We are heading to Old South Mountain Inn 😍 it's so good, and so romantic. Check it out and make sure they have something for you! I'm sure they do!
Monocacy Crossing is very nice
Red Lobster has a crab feast special going on. I had two crab cakes topped with shrimp. Salmon, mash potatoes. All topped with a hollandaise sauce. Called crab cakes & carb-oscar salmon. They also, have shrimp-topped crab cake dinner. Check it out on-line
I like the crab cakes at Brewer's Alley and also at Tasting Room. Obviously you'd get out of Brewers for less $$.
There's a new little place on 7th Street across from the hospital called Mackey's that ironically has very good crab cakes and good BBQ too.

As American as apple pie, the annual National Pie Championships, in Orlando, Fla., pits professional and amateur bakers from across the U.S. in a showdown that is definitely not "easy as pie." Conor K...
Also need some volunteers! This is actually one of the easiest races to put on. It only requires a few people at the start/finish area (to time the race and keep the bears away from the pies 😉), a couple of people at the water stop, and one lonely soul at the turn-around point. If I get more than that, we could even use a course marshall or two. WHO WANTS TO VOLUNEER?
Some good looking people! Congratulations to you all !!!
BIG THANK YOU to Dennis Bridges (who doesn't monitor FB too much) for stepping up to take charge of the Delauter Road Aid Station! He was ably assisted by Catherine Badger, Lou & Harriet, and several others that I believe are already mentioned above.
Thank you to all the Steeps volunteers. Terrific race because of you. Shout out to RD Kevin Sayers, one of the best.
I loved that either on the trails or at the aid stations, there was always a Steep in sight. Proud to be a member of this group, and couldn't have done it without you all!!
You guys are amazing and truly inspirational! Congratulations!
You all did the hard work and I'm proud of each and every runner who attempted this. We just tried to make it easier for you to feel comfortable and finish strong.
It never ceases to amaze me how all the volunteers jump at the chance to help us, touching our sweaty, smelly selves and going out of their way to make sure we are running healthy. Thank you!
Special thanks to Robbie Blaylock for coming out to get me when the wheels fell of and Kerry McHugh for being my personal crew.
Yup, the volunteers are awesome. Thanks for all the aid and support.
I'm still so impressed with all of you. Job well done. It truly shows the mind and heart can overcome any obstacle! Congratulations
Truly thankful for this club and all the work the volunteers do... And all the work you all do for each other as runners on the course. I miss you all so much and will never forget any of you! Keep holding each other up! It's what makes us a family! Again, thank you for all your love and support over the years... and for many more years to come! ❤🏃 #gosteeps
If a 7 year old can sustain any running pace for a full mile they're doing well.
I've been stressing the "go slow and go long" with my 6 year old and we generally do our miles around 12:30 pace.
A 7:30 for a 6 year old age grades to about 72% which is regional class. So fast, but not phenomenally fast. But I'm with Mark, a 6 year that can hold any pace for a full mile is doing well. At that age group that is what we work on most. Slowing them down and working on continuous running. And learning the difference between slow conversational training miles and racing miles. A more "average" time for a 6 year old would be around 8:00 or 8:15. If he loves running that much, I recommend signing him up for youth cross country this fall. Quite a few local teams, some more competitive, some more relaxed, but all seem to focus on lifelong, healthy running habits.
They're all different. I paced a 7 year old to a 1:40:59 half marathon, but that was a world record.
I think 10 minutes is a good goal for a 6 year old especially if you're at 10:45 now. Then you can reduce it by a minute per mile per year. By the time he's 10 he'll probably be able to do a 7:00 minute mile. He won't really need to work too hard to reach that goal but you will have to show some dedication--running 3 times per week for a couple of months. Patience is the key. At that age, you can see a PR or 2 almost every week if you just stick to it. And there will be plenty of time to do other sports. When middle school comes he can take it a bit more seriously--try to get under 6:00. And same with high school. That's what I would probably encourage.
My son has always been eager to please but also equally fearful to disappoint, so I am always very careful to manage our expectations with our ~3-per-week runs and never look at pace until the run is over. I remind myself that the mental toughness even for something like sprinting the last 50 feet of our run is something that I've built over three decades of life experience. It seems simple to me but it's all new to him.
Great read, Evan. Really enjoyed seeing you cross the finish line.
So proud of you for finishing that beast, Evan! And awesome display of the ultra spirit helping others achieve their goals as well. Best of luck with your surgery!
You are awesome. Best of luck to you in the upcoming days 🙂
It's reports like these when I think to myself, "I want to be part of THAT!"
So inspiring and a great read, Evan. Good luck with your upcoming surgery; that tumor doesn't know who it's messing with!
Awesome runner, awesome person! Great job Evan ..
Your race reports never disappoint! What a privilege to be a small part of your triumph! Congratulations, Evan! You earned this victory, and you have every right to be very proud!
Good run Evan! I saw you out there? You're a GD beast! Thanks for sharing your story. And here I was crying about my abscesses tooth.
Fantastic read! Inspiring!
You all are so inspiring!
Evan great report. Actually swelled up with tears a few times.
I admire your determination.
Great job by all.
Good luck on your surgery.
Evan, great report & thank you so much! So glad you said 'let's go', got me to the finish & finished yourself!
Wow, what a great read. Glad you finished! Good luck with surgery. Looking forward to reading more
when you get back to running.
Evan , this was so inspiring. Thanks for writing the race report...I always enjoy reading them.
Congratulations on the finish and good luck with the surgery and recovery!
What a Wonderful report! Thank you so much for this. Positive thoughts sent to you for your surgery & I am so happy for you and your CAT 50k finish!
Thank you for such detailed and inspiring report. The best luck for speedy recovery with surgery!
Amazing perseverance and very inspiring. Congratulations.
This is amazing, beautiful and so well written. Thank you for sharing your adventure, Evan. You are a true inspiration to us all. Thank you to our running community for giving each of us the positive encouragement to push our personal limits to achieve what we believe are unattainable goals.
Thank you for sharing your experience, you are a great writer and an inspiration. Congratulations on your finish!
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I'm always inspired by your race reports. Congrats on the finish! Best wishes for the surgery and recovery.
Evan, I had no idea about your health issues. You are an amazing runner and a great writer too! Thanks for sharing all of this. You inspire me. I was really pulling for you. Every time someone came around the last bend at the Tea Room I hoped it would be you. Congrats on your race bro!
Way to dig deep Evan! I was so elated to see you cross that finish line because I knew what it meant to you.
Pain Cave indeed and the roughest races or DNF's prove to be some of our most important lessons and tools for what is yet to come.
Great report Evan - you're an inspiration indeed! Congratulations on your achievement!! Will be praying for a success surgery and recovery.
You were strong. Way to go
What a great story! Inspiring for sure! Good luck on your next race and upcoming surgery!
Great story! So happy for your strong race yesterday .
If you are out using the trails this week, you'll notice these orange directional signs which lead users around the trails.
These are up for a weekly running group who will be using the trails to run on. So, expect these to be up for a couple of weeks.
While I'm finalizing the map before print, this is a great opportunity to get out there and run, ride or explore the trails if you haven't yet.....especially if you think you'd get "lost" otherwise. ... See MoreSee Less
Hi steeps. I have been suffering from horrible shin splints for about 6 weeks now. I have changed shoes, am stretching, and am now running in compression sleeves. Any other suggestions? It is really impacting my runs. Thanks in advance! ... See MoreSee Less
Have you been increasing your mileage too quickly? That's when I notice shin splints. Also when my shoes start to get worn down. Compression, ice, and ibuprofen are what helped me when I had them. You may have to take a break or at least lower your mileage for a little while too.
My mileage has remained the same since the Frederick half. I don't think I am icing enough. Thanks!
See Josh Funk! Could be worn out shoes ? How did you change shoes, brand ? Style ?
Use a tennis ball or lacrosse ball and rub the areas that hurt. That helped me
Ice and compress! Try an ace wrap or compression socks.
Go see R2p Josh
You may need additional exercises to get stronger. It could be a core weakness.....
3rd for seeing Josh Funk. Those guys are magical.
Gait analysis by a PT
I have a Shin Splint on my left leg for two months. I have worn a compression sleeve for two weeks and no improvement. I cut down running to a mile a day for the past week. Also I am taking ibuprofen and some other drugs that shall remain nameless. I don't think it is better, it still hurts today. Maybe I will try ice. Next Tuesday I have to start Marathon training even if I am not better. I wish I had a cure too
PT will get you back on the road fast I used pivot Chris Rossa 3 weeks before Roanoke marathon ended 2nd in AG and no pain
Thanks everyone. I just contacted Josh.
Get your foot to move with the ground on contact by using good running form. Accomplished by not stepping out in front of your center of gravity.
I was having a shin splint problem a while back. I'm a new runner. I have no expertise, training or specialized knowledge of any kind. Please do not take what I have to say very seriously. Having said that, I tried several different self-care ideas before I came across the following isometric stretch:
Take off your shoes and socks. Kneel, knees together, shins flat on the floor (I used a carpet, but a yoga mat would be ideal), legs parallel, with your feet pointing out behind you. With me so far? Now, ease your hindparts backwards and down, ever so gently. Hold for about ten counts. Don't go crazy, and certainly don't do it past the point of discomfort.
It's not that this worked for me so much as I heard choirs of angels because of the near-instantaneous relief. It wasn't totally gone, but the improvement was really amazing for me, and several months have passed without a recurrence of the problem. Proceed at your own risk, no lifeguard on duty, etc.
Tina, I'm just curious about whether or not you land on your forefoot when running downhill?
My biggest issue with shin splints was when I started wearing a new pair of shoes that had too much control. Changing to different style helped. R2P are great.
As I prepare for my move to Florida, I wanted to send a quick message out to the Steeps to thank you for everything that this amazing club has taught me and offered over the last four years. Not only did I meet some of the most amazing people and made friendships to last a lifetime, I have learned so many things from this group. There are a few people that I would like to thank, Billy Clem thank you for all your words of encouragement, your smiles, your hugs, your laughter and everything that you do for the steeps, there is just no one out there like you. Janadel Harris, thank you for steering me along during my training runs and guiding me during my path to become a marathon runner. Heidi Novak, your daily posts during training was everything this club needed. You have a way to lift people up with your motivation. To everyone else out there thank you for everything. This Saturday will be my last group run with the Steeps for now. I will be running with the half training group. As I leave Maryland and start my new journey, I want to leave you with this: Never Quit, if you stumble get back up, what happened yesterday no longer matters, today is another day so get on track and move closer to your dreams and goals. You can do it. So this is not goodbye, this is see ya real soon.........I will miss the steeps for sure. ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks for the kind words Lisa! I'm proud of your accomplishments! And your desire to help others achieve their own. You're one of the best "we" runners (vs. "me" runner) I know! Enjoy Florida!

All the best to you in FL, Lisa. ❤️
What will the boys at R2P do without you - Zach Baker Josh Funk
Lisa you did it, I've got no words. Thank you for all that you've done for us and for your fellow participants in the programs. Thank you for your incredibly generous words. You've always been supportive even during tumultuous times in your life.
Thanks so much for the kind words. I totally agree with Jan and Billy. You go out of your way to make others feel welcome and to encourage them during the training programs. It's been great getting to know you. Best of luck in Florida.
Good luck, Lisa Stern.
Good luck! We will miss you.

Steeps family, Azhar Ibrahim and I are thinking of adding biking to our running training and for general fitness. Any advice on type and/or brand of bikes will be greatly appreciated? We will probably do most the rides on the C&O canal. Thanks in advance. ... See MoreSee Less
Well you've got a couple options to consider.
First what's your budget?
Not really sure where to start. Perhaps $500 max for a bike, less will be great as we may discover that biking is not for us as we both have lower back problem.
My husband and I both have Trek bikes. We got hybrids for road and canal riding.
Treks are a good brand. So is cannondale. You can check with Keith at 3 points there in Brunswick. He sells cannondale and Fuji (another good brand). If you scroll down to the bottom you can see the trek hybrid bikes.
It might be tough finding new at that price point. I wouldn't recommend dept store bikes. The quality is not good and they are built with the lowest end parts you can find which won't last long.
Josh and I both have Trek bikes. I would suggest checking out the bike doctor. We purchased ours from there and they offer a yearly tune up for the life of the bike.
Don't worry about the brand of bike. Most of the brands sold at the bike shops listed above will be fine. A bike manufacturer really only makes the frame, all the other parts are from a 3rd party. A good bike shop, near your house, with knowledgeable sales people is most important. You will end up visiting the shop time after time for service, parts, and advice. What is great for one person, may not "fit" someone else. Sizing / comfort is critical.
I just bought a trek Marlin 4..love it..used it on C&O 3 times, did well
I use Wheel Base, but that's mainly because they're downtown like me. I've heard good things about several places in the area. The bike I have is good for the canal. It's considered a hybrid bike. It's a road bike with some trail riding features like heavier/thicker tires and fork shocks.
I would suggest hybrid if You're doing most of your rides on n the C&O.
I also got my bike from the bike doctor. They didnt have a trek that fitted me but I got fitted on a really nice Felt bike... Which I actually took out today and had a blast on!
Thank you everyone!! It's great to have people to ask so we know where to start.
Look at Bikesdirect.com, I've bought both my hybrid and road from bikes from there.
Like buying running shoes, I think there's a lot of benefit going to a specialty shop locally especially when you are trying to figure out what you need. The consultation is worth more than what you might save buying on-line or at a big box store.
While a mountain or hybrid bike is more practical, should you decide you want to do road, I have a great road bike for sale.
I've thought about doing this also so thanks for the post so I can refer to later.
Ideally your going to want a bike with skinny tires. Don't get a mountain bike unless you plan to ride trails.
I think it's smart to start with an inexpensive hybrid/sport bike. That will allow you to ride on all types of terrain and decide what you like best for your next bike! If you like riding, there will be a next bike! Any of the four local bike shops in Frederick can set you up. I have purchased bikes from both Wheelbase Bikes and The Bicycle Escape.
Highly recommend a hybrid bike for riding on the canal, and you'll also be good on the road with it particularly until you know if cycling is for you. I ride a Specialized Vita and my husband rides a Giant. We've purchased four bikes from The Bicycle Escape and have been very happy with their guidance, knowledge and patience as we figured out what to buy. As others have said, the brand is not as important as the fit, just like shoes, which is why a specialty shop is so important.
I too got my bike at Bicycle Escape over by Wegmans. I got a Specialized hybrid.
i just got a trek FX hybrib and love it
oh i got it at wheelbase tell them regina sent you
About 8 yrs ago Brady and I got Trek hybrids as anniversary presents to each other. Best present ever! There are so many really great bike shops. They can help you out. We've bought from (and would recommend) the Bike Dr and Bicycle Escape. Both places were really helpful (and it sounds like the other shops are good options too)
Might I suggest Gravel & Grind located downtown? I've been eyeing the Bedford 7 🙂
Email Kevin directly. There were some email issues with the new system.
last year you could check in early and get your shirt, but parking was tough cause all the runners and such. I never checked in, I just showed up at delauter and they brought the shirts down with all the supplies.
Just heard back from Kevin. He did say parking was an issue so go straight to Delauter. Thanks, all!
i sort of want to park 4-5 miles away and run to delauter on the trail and run back to my car when i am done so I can do my ragnar Double run day, but i don't know where is the best place to park. I am not familiar with that trail at all.
It occurs to me that I haven't a clue where the aid station even is, so I don't think I can be much help, Robbie!
New FSRC Store Item: Women's Training Shirts - $20. We have some shirts available from this year's 5k training program.

Hello Steeps, did you know there is a proposed trail between downtown Frederick and Walkersville? This would be an awesome addition to our running options in and around Frederick. It would go over Route 26 and The Monocacy River! Check out this page and please take the time to fill out the quick 2 minute survey. Let's see how many Steeps we can get to take the survey! Comment below or like this post when you take it. Then share the post with friends and family! bikefrederick.org/mct/... See MoreSee Less
Took the survey. Guess it's best to say you will run into Frederick and buy stuff.
The segment over 26 from downtown has been on the books for many years - the East Street Rail Trail. It is partially funded. The bridge over 26 is not yet funded. The new proposed Monocacy trail would extend this to Walkersville. It will be so great for both running and riding!
Awesome Guys, thanks! Share the link with friends you think might like the trail. These projects are hard to get moving without a real push from the community.
Done!! That would be fantastic
Right by me. I like it 😊
Proposed $10.3 Million for under 4 miles of trail. I hope they plan on doing some fundraising for the project and not just lobbying.
Hey Steeps! Thanks for the plug. The Frederick Bicycle Coalition is promoting this trail. We've met with city, county, and state representatives and all have been supportive. Please follow our Facebook page to be sure to get updates on this important multi-use infrastructure!
Hi all! I'm looking for recommendations on a good multi sport, waterproof activity tracker. Or just something to track swimming. I have things to track running and biking. But thought I could combine all 3. Thanks in advance. ... See MoreSee Less
Yeah was going to suggest the same thing. Vivoactive fits your needs.
I have a Vivoactive and love it.
I also have a vivoactive, and think it would do all that you're looking for.
Does it work in open water? I wanted to track when I swim in the lake.
I have a Vivoactive HR which I use for pool swims and also for running. When I did an open water swim I used the run feature for the GPS and switched it manually afterward to a swim. Garmin also makes more specific swim watches but my Vivoactive HR is good enough for what I use it for.
Vivoactive if you go for it search the garmin factory. Has great discounts
