Olan's Reign Is Over: USATF Needs A New King
&quot;The king is dead. Long live the king.&quot; Perhaps Shakespeare is a bit dramatic when speaking of the governance of running, but drama was the order of the day in San Francisco, where the annual USATF national convention was held last week. After a long run as the executive director of USATF, Olan Cassell has been voted out of a job by its board of governors. Almost universally reviled by the movers and shakers in the sport, the amazing thing is not that Cassell is out, but that he managed to last this long to begin with.

A Million Reasons to Run a Fast Marathon
New Balance comes along with a nifty million dollar offer for an American record marathon. Motivated?

New York, New York, Big City of Dreams
The New York Marathon is fast approaching, a race that created a marriage between marathon running and big cities that has lived happily in urban settings all over the globe. Since 1976 when it moved from Central Park to the five boroughs of Brooklyn, Queens, Yonkers, The Bronx, and Manhattan, the New York City Marathon has set the standard for metropolitan marathons.

The First Baystate Marathon
With the Baystate marathon coming up Sunday, I thought I would again post this article about the history of the race, now in its ninth running. I initiated the race in 1990 with my now Cool Running friend Dave Camire, of the Greater Lowell Road Runners. The original goal was to stage a marathon after the new year, but before Boston. All that existed in New England at the time was Hyannis, an iffy proposition at best for those of you who have ever been to Cape Cod in March. As Boston qualifying was open until March, it seemed another opportunity in the area would be welcome.

The Fall Marathon Season: Made For Running
Running has been around since the dawn of man, but it's pretty clear that autumn marathoning was born on October 24, 1976. On that date, the preposterous idea of taking a small four lapper around Central Park and moving it across all five boroughs of New York City was realized by a visionary named Fred Lebow.
