Masters Long Distance Runners Profiled and Recognized

December 4 2014. Profiling is a questionable practice if done by TSA, but profiling of Masters Long Distance Runners by Runners World or Running Times is definitely a good thing. My running colleagues,  Doug Goodhue and Lloyd Hansen, both of the Ann Arbor Track Club, have recently been profiled by Runners World's Running Times. There is a web exclusive on Doug Goodhue at:

The article on Lloyd Hansen appears in the print version of Running Times January/February 2015, issue 423, pp. 30-31. As far as I know it is not (yet) available online.

Both articles will reward the reader with interesting facts about these excellent runners and how they practice their craft.

USATF announced their end-of-the-year awards. Congratulations to all of the following:
