FLRC Footnotes for December 2020

Happy New Year, runners! We had no races in December, but quite a bit has been happening since our last issue. 

  • Nearly 150 people ran the Virtual Turkey Trot on their own to support Loaves & Fishes. 
  • Our Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt has been a great success, with lots of participants and plenty more enjoying their silly photos. 
  • We had an FLRC Presents talk about Achilles tendinopathy that you can watch. 
  • Although we have been forced to cancel some races in early 2021, we have a peek at our big initiative for next year: the FLRC Challenge!

On to the details!

Are you ready for the FLRC Challenge in 2021?

COVID-19 has thrown a monkey wrench into our race schedule, so we have something new for you in 2021: the FLRC Challenge! It’s a series of ten virtual races, half road, half trail, ranging in distance from 1 mile to the half marathon. Complete them all to win the coveted FLRC Challenge medal! To increase the challenge, we have individual and team competitions for the speedy, the consistent, and the deliberate. The twist is that you can run each course as many times as you want throughout the year. Individuals will compete for over 200 cash prizes based on fastest times (overall and age group), best average times, and most efforts for each course. 10-year age group teams will go up against other generations for bragging rights based on age-graded times and most efforts. A dynamic online leaderboard will display individual and team standings. All profits from the FLRC Challenge will support local running programs like Girls on the Run and the GIAC Navigators. Race director Adam Engst isn’t quite ready to open registration, but you can watch his intro video and stay tuned for updates!

FLRC’s Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt Gets Runners Taking Pictures

In FLRC’s Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt, fellow runners from around the world (hi, Shelly!) competed to find six items each week and post their pictures to the FLRC Forum. The pictures have been hilarious, as contestants looked for ever-sillier ways of meeting the spirit of the hunt’s requirements, so be sure to check out the photos from Week #1, Week #2, Week #3, Week #4, Week #5, and Week #6. Thanks to Scavenger Hunt director Heather Cobb for giving many people some focus for their runs and pictorial entertainment for the rest of us!

FLRC’s Virtual Turkey Trot raises over $4000 for Loaves & Fishes!

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in FLRC’s Virtual Turkey Trot! Together, 148 runners raised over $4000 to help Loaves & Fishes feed those in need in our community, exceeding our usual goal by $1000. Kudos to race director Bruce Roebal for not letting the pandemic put a stop to this fine tradition of runners working to prevent hunger among us.

Watch “FLRC Presents: Managing Achilles Tendinopathy” on YouTube

If you missed Jason Tuori’s third FLRC Presents talk on Achilles tendinopathy, you can still watch it on FLRC’s YouTube channel. And if you have questions about pain in your Achilles or the back of your foot, feel free to ask them on the FLRC Forum! We took a break from FLRC Presents in December due to the holiday season, but we’re planning to be back in January with an open mic session where everyone can ask injury-related questions of several experts.

FLRC weekly workouts continue 

If you’re looking for some structure for your training, remember that we continue to post our weekly workouts for middle (5K to 15K) and long (half marathon and marathon) distance runners on the FLRC Forum. If you run with a friend or find yourself in the presence of walkers or runners, please follow FLRC’s recommendations for safe running!

Canceled: Winter Chill 5K series, indoor track meets, Hartshorne Masters Mile, and Skunk Cabbage Classic

It is with deep regret that FLRC must announce the cancellation of the Winter Chill 5K series, our indoor track meets, the Hartshorne Memorial Masters Mile, and the Skunk Cabbage Classic. Given expected infection rates, venue restrictions, and recommendations from local public health officials, FLRC believes that it would be irresponsible to encourage large gatherings of runners. Please help us control infections in our community by staying home, celebrating the holidays virtually with loved ones, and masking up whenever you’re in public.

Until next time, stay fit and stay healthy, and we look forward to running together again!

—Adam Engst, FLRC President and VP of Track

Canceled for 2021: Winter Chill 5K Series, Indoor Track Meets, Hartshorne Masters Mile, and Skunk Cabbage Classic

You likely saw this coming, but the FLRC board and race directors regret to announce the cancellation of the in-person runnings of the Winter Chill 5K series, our indoor track meets, the Hartshorne Memorial Masters Mile, and the Skunk Cabbage Classic.

In large part, we made this decision due to the recent rise in COVID-19 infection rates in the community and the concern that holiday gatherings will cause infections to surge even higher. Plus, Cornell University’s Barton Hall indoor track is not available for large groups, particularly off-campus visitors. Please help us control infections in our community by staying home, celebrating the holidays virtually with loved ones, and masking up whenever you’re in public.

The FLRC board and race directors will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and discuss future races at our upcoming board meetings. At the moment, we’re still hoping to hold the Super Frosty Loomis snowshoe race on February 6th and will make a final decision in mid-January.

As much as we hate canceling races, we’re excited about a major initiative we have planned for the local running community throughout 2021: the FLRC Challenge! Learn more about it here.

We encourage you to exercise regularly—the many benefits may include fun, stress relief, and boosting the immune system. Try to run in uncrowded areas, mask up when passing close to others, and [please follow our COVID-19 recommendations](https://fingerlakesrunners.org/covid-19/).

Stay fit, stay healthy, and we look forward to being able to run together again!

FLRC’s Virtual Turkey Trot Raises over $4000 for Loaves & Fishes!

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in FLRC’s Virtual Turkey Trot! Together, 148 runners raised over $4000 to help Loaves & Fishes feed those in need in our community.

If you ran but did not sign up on the Webscorer page, message me so I can add you to the list for the Honor Roll.

Please stay happy, safe, and healthy. I look forward to seeing you all at the 49th running of the Turkey Trot next year.

Gobble, Gobble!

FLRC Footnotes for November 2020

Greetings, runners! We have no in-person events again this month, but there’s still plenty to do. Most importantly, please help us support Loaves & Fishes in our Virtual Turkey Trot! We’re also hoping you’ll join in the fun of our Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt for the rest of the year. Plus, be sure to check out our FLRC Presents series of injury talks—the next one looks at Achilles tendinopathy. Finally, note that regular deer hunting season goes from Saturday, November 21st through the end of Sunday, December 13th, so be sure to wear blaze orange if you’re out on the trails. Read on for details!

Turkey Trot goes virtual to raise money for Loaves & Fishes

We may not be able to meet in person for our traditional Turkey Trot prediction run, but race director Bruce Roebal is taking the Turkey Trot virtual this year as a fund run to benefit Loaves & Fishes of Tompkins County. Loaves & Fishes currently provides over 1200 meals every week to those in need, nearly three times more than last year at this time. Run or walk a 5-mile course of your choice anytime the week of Thanksgiving, before the end of Thanksgiving Day. No predictions. No times. No pies. Just future calories burned and meals for the hungry! For 2020 to count toward your inclusion on the Turkey Trot Honor Roll, please register for the Virtual Turkey Trot online. The $10 registration fee is equal to what we would have asked that you donate to Loaves & Fishes had we all run from Ithaca High School. If you wish, you can add an additional amount. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Loaves & Fishes to help their efforts in feeding our community. Our goal is to raise at least $3000 to match the amount a normal Turkey Trot usually generates for Loaves & Fishes, and with your help, maybe we can exceed that number.

Build some fun into your runs with FLRC’s Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt

Looking to spice up some dreary early winter runs? In FLRC’s Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt, you’ll compete with fellow runners to find six items each week on your runs through the end of the year. For each item you find, take a selfie or a picture and post it to the FLRC Forum to earn a point. Each week, the runner(s) with the most points will be entered into a drawing to win fabulous FLRC swag at the end of the event. The Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt is free, you can join at any time, and it will run from November 22 to December 31, 2020. You can run, walk, or hike, and there’s no minimum mileage required. Scavenger Hunt director Heather Cobb will be posting the first week’s items to find soon, and you can read more details on the forum.

Mark your calendar for “FLRC Presents: Managing Achilles Tendinopathy” on 11/23 at 6:30 PM

Our FLRC Presents series of virtual presentations is continuing! On Monday, November 23th at 6:30 PM, physical therapist Jason Tuori will be giving a free live virtual presentation on patellofemoral pain syndrome, more commonly known as runner’s knee. It’s perhaps the most common running injury, with up to half of all runners suffering from it at some point. Tuori will explain the anatomy of the knee, how you can differentiate patellofemoral pain syndrome from other knee conditions, what commonly causes it, how you can treat it, and how you can avoid it in the first place. Along with a graduate degree in Physical Therapy, Tuori is a certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, a certified USA Track & Field Level 1 Coach, a certified USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach, and an accomplished runner and triathlete who has dealt with his own share of injuries. The talk is free, but registration is required to get the Zoom connection details.

 200-day hiking streak by FLRC members Amy and Elizabeth Dawson

Congrats to FLRC members Amy Dawson and her daughter Elizabeth Dawson for their 200-day streak of hiking—covering nearly 600 miles—in local state parks during the pandemic. Their efforts garnered them a mention in both the Ithaca Times and New York State’s daily coronavirus update, a worthwhile email newsletter from the state about how we’re faring. Each installment includes a “Deep Breath Moment” featuring people who’ve done something extraordinary during these challenging times.

Watch “FLRC Presents: Managing Runner’s Knee” on YouTube

If you missed Jason Tuori’s second presentation on patellofemoral pain, also known as runner’s knee, you can still watch it on FLRC’s YouTube channel. And if you have questions about what’s going on in your knee, feel free to ask them on the FLRC forum!

FLRC weekly workouts continue after helping Gabrielle Woo to a PR

If you’re looking for some structure for your running, remember that we continue to post our weekly workouts for middle- (5K to 15K) and long- (half marathon and marathon) distance runners on the FLRC forum. FLRC member Gabrielle Woo reported that she dropped her half-marathon PR by over 5 minutes after running the long-distance workouts all summer. If you run with a friend or find yourself in the presence of walkers or runners, please follow FLRC’s recommendations for safe running!

Install the COVID Alert NY app on your phone to help stop the spread of COVID-19

Until we as a society can eliminate the coronavirus, races, group runs, and other club events simply won’t be the same. One easy thing we can do now is install the free COVID Alert NY app on our phones—there are versions for the iPhone and Android. After you enable it, it alerts you if you were in close contact with someone who later tests positive for COVID-19. The underlying technology was created in an unprecedented collaboration between Apple and Google and has received praise from privacy advocates because it doesn’t record or reveal your location or any personal information to anyone, including Apple, Google, New York State, or the federal government. It’s one more way we can all work together to protect each other and move toward normalcy.

Until next time, stay fit and stay healthy, and we look forward to running together again!

—Adam Engst, FLRC President and VP of Track

Put More Fun in Your Runs with FLRC’s Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt

Join us for the Happy Holidays Scavenger Hunt via the Finger Lakes Runners Club forum! It’s free to participate and you can join any time during the event. The event will run from November 22nd to December 31st, 2020. You may run, walk, or hike, and there’s no minimum mileage required. (“Run/running” below means run, walk, or hike.)

Each week in the Group Runs & Workouts forum, we will post six items to find while on your run. For each item you find, photograph, and post to that week’s hunt list, you’ll get one point (no repeating items for multiple points). The people with the most points each week will be entered into a drawing to win some fun FLRC swag at the end of the event.

Additionally, the race director may choose an additional person to add to the drawing each week. This choice may be based on particularly an artistic or amusing photo, or how many “likes” a picture receives on the forum.

Take selfies with that week’s hunt items while on your runs, and post them in the hunt list thread on the FLRC Forum. (From a desktop computer, you can just drag your photo in; from a smartphone, tap the upload button and then pick a photo; see the screenshots below.) If you’re feeling shy, a picture of the item alone is okay, but the goal here is to share in each other’s adventures. We all get messy when we run, so no judgments!

Please follow Finger Lakes Runners Club’s guidelines for physical distancing so you can enjoy running while reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19. Be sure to comply with your state, county, and municipality orders and guidelines as well.

Look for the first set of items in the Group Runs & Workouts forum on Friday night. Any questions? Feel free to ask here.

Happy hunting!

Note: Deer season starts this weekend and runs through December 13th. While you’re out on the trails, even if gun hunting isn’t allowed in that area, it would be best to wear bright colors, with blaze orange preferred. Stay safe!

FLRC Presents: Jason Tuori’s “Managing Achilles Tendinopathy” on 11/23 at 6:30 PM

In our ongoing FLRC Presents series, physical therapist Jason Tuori is moving on from runner’s knee (watch now, if you missed it live) to the second-most common injury among runners, Achilles tendinopathy, or, as it used to be called, Achilles tendinitis. If you’ve ever had pain on the back of your heel, where the Achilles tendon connects your calf muscles to your heel bone, you know how debilitating it can be.

In this free Zoom presentation on Monday, November 23rd at 6:30 PM, Jason will explain the relevant anatomy of the lower leg, how you can differentiate Achilles tendinopathy from other conditions that cause pain in the foot and ankle area, what commonly causes it, how you can treat it, and how you can avoid it in the first place.

As always, we’ll have time for questions after the presentation, and Jason will also answer follow-up questions on the FLRC forum. We’ll post a recording of the talk the next day for those who have schedule conflicts with the live presentation. Sign up today!

Along with a graduate degree in Physical Therapy, Jason is a certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, a certified USA Track & Field Level 1 Coach, a certified USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach, and an accomplished runner and triathlete who has dealt with his own share of injuries, including numerous bouts of runner’s knee.

The presentation is free to attend, but registration is required. You’ll receive the Zoom connection details in your confirmation email, which will also prevent the possible Zoombombing of the talk by random trolls.

Run FLRC’s Virtual Turkey Trot and raise money for Loaves & Fishes!

Greetings, Turkey Trotters!

The Finger Lakes Runners Club is hosting the 48th Annual Turkey Trot as a virtual fund run to benefit Loaves & Fishes of Tompkins County. Loaves & Fishes currently provides over 1200 meals every week to those in need, nearly three times more than last year at this time.

Run, walk, or push a stroller on a 5-mile course of your choice anytime before the end of Thanksgiving Day. No predictions. No times. No pies. Just future calories burned and meals for the hungry!

For 2020 to count toward your inclusion on the Turkey Trot Honor Roll, please register for the Virtual Turkey Trot online. The $10 registration fee is what we ask that you donate to Loaves & Fishes had we all run from Ithaca High School. If you wish, you can add an additional donation. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Loaves & Fishes to help them feed our community. Our goal is to raise at least $3000 to match the amount a normal Turkey Trot usually generates for Loaves & Fishes, and with your help, maybe we can exceed that number.

Hopefully, we will all be together again for the Turkey Trot in 2021, with extra pies awarded to the most accurate predictors!

Gobble, Gobble!

FLRC Footnotes for September 2020

Greetings, runners! It has been an unusual summer, to say the least. As we head into fall, temperatures are dropping into a more comfortable running zone, and the leaves are starting to paint our trails with their fall colors.

We’ve taken a few months off from publishing the FLRC Footnotes because not much was happening, and most of what we had to share was about canceling races. FLRC won’t be having any more races in 2020, but as New York State continues to keep its infection rate under 1%, we’re starting to bring back in-person events. Read on for details about these and other club activities!

CLUB NEWS

FLRC Virtual COVID-19 Fund Run Raises over $15,000 for the Running Store

Big thanks to FLRC board member and event organizer Pete Kresock for putting together FLRC’s first virtual event back in April: the Virtual COVID-19 Fund Run to benefit Ian Golden’s Finger Lakes Running Company. A whopping 527 people participated from all over the world, and the event raised $15,335 to help keep the running store afloat during the coronavirus pandemic. The club also purchased $50 gift cards to the running store to award to 10 random participants. One additional runner won another $50 gift card donated by Vinny Cappadora of Happily Running. Read Pete’s full writeup on the FLRC forum and be sure to check out the coverage in Tompkins Weekly.

High School Runners Steven Segal and Kia Moore Win FLRC Scholarships

Congratulations to Steven Segal of Corning-Painted Post High School and Kia Moore of Charles O. Dickerson High School in Trumansburg, who last spring received $1000 FLRC scholarships based on their academic achievements, extracurricular activities, and demonstrated passion for running. Segal is continuing his education and running career at Cornell University, while Moore is attending Ithaca College. See FLRC scholarship coordinator Lorrie Tily’s full writeup on the forum.

Runners Get Stronger in FLRC’s Bodyweight for Runners Class

In August, FLRC board members Gary McCheyne and Adam Engst coordinated a twice-weekly strength training class outdoors at Stewart Park. Led by professional fitness coaches from Infinity Athletics, the classes took participants through a series of strength, conditioning, and mobility exercises without any additional equipment. The outdoor venue made physical distancing easy, while other safety precautions, such as pre-workout health check-ins and required mask-wearing whenever distances dropped below 10 feet, ensured that everyone was comfortable. We received positive feedback on the class and are pondering different ways of continuing it. For that, we need your input—please take our survey!

Special Presentation on Risk Factors for Running Injuries on 9/24 at 6:30 PM

Mark your calendars! Physical therapist Jason Tuori will be giving a free live virtual presentation on Risk Factors for Running Injuries on Thursday, September 24th at 6:30 PM. All runners struggle with injury sooner or later, and Tuori will examine the various risk factors for different runners, talk about which can and cannot be modified, explain why injury prevention and treatment is such a tough problem, and offer advice for how you can stay healthy. Along with a graduate degree in Physical Therapy, Tuori is a certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist, a certified USA Track & Field Level 1 Coach, a certified USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach, and an accomplished runner and triathlete who has dealt with his own share of injuries. So yes, he knows what he’s talking about! Connection details coming soon on the FLRC forum.

WORKOUTS, GROUP RUNS, AND RACES

Tuesday Night MITHACAL MILERS Cross Country Workouts Are Back!

Led by FLRC president and RRCA-certified coach Adam Engst, the free workouts will focus on intervals on grass and hills. They’ll be carefully designed to keep runners spaced well apart while retaining the feeling of running with a group.

Sadly, the FLRC board and race directors have decided to cancel the remainder of our in-person races for 2020—the 5 & 10, the Monster Marathon, the Danby Down & Dirty Trail Runs, and our in-person running of the Turkey Trot Prediction Run. Further details about the cancellations can be found on our Announcements forum. Stay tuned for information about a virtual Turkey Trot run so that the club can continue its annual fundraiser for Loaves & Fishes of Tompkins County.

Additionally, the organizers of the Pete Glavin Cross Country Series—in which FLRC annually fields a women’s team and the High Noon Athletic Club fields a men’s team—have decided to cancel their series. We look forward to returning to in-person races in 2021.

Until next time, stay fit and stay healthy, and we look forward to being able to run together again!
