Race/Event Reports
Missoula All Women’s 5K Run on Diva Day
Divas-- are you getting your shoes, your training, and, of course, your outfit
ready for this year's Missoula All Women's 5K Run? The race is at 9:30am on
October 8 with a party, fashion show, and awards until noon. All at the
Community Medical Center Campus.
          The race will be as much fun as always... stretching, dancing,
chocolates, massage, kid’s activities-- and the 5K run. You'll find all the info
you need to know when you register via Active registration. Run Wild
Missoula site (has link to active or has a Paper registration to mail in),
Brochures at Runner's Edge, Women's Club, Peak Health and Wellness and
Alpine Physical Therapy, YMCA, and other spots around town..
          SHIRT SIZES... We have ordered "up" a size this year. Last year the
shirts were pretty small and we ran out of the larger sizes. We hope we got it
right this year, and have some other item available for those who find the XXL
just won't do. So remember how it went last year and order a size up. We
place our order well before the main registration numbers come in. We try
our best to accommodate all of you, and priority goes to those who have
preregistered.
          COURSE... The first part of the course is still under revision, to avoid
any construction at the Campus and to let cars into the small parking lot by the
kid’s soccer fields. A new map will be posted on the web before race day and
will be at the registration. We may have a bit more grass to run on and a curb
to watch out for. SO be aware and alert as you run and listen to any volunteer
marshals.
                                                                                 9
          CMC's Ava Nichole Breast Health Fund... This year you can donate to
the Ava Nichole Fund of the Community Medical Center Foundation. The Ava
Nicole fund was established to support the needs of breast health patients
during their diagnosis and treatment. For more information contact the

Pumpkin Run
The Pumpkin Run 5K and 400 Meter Kids Event at New Location - Near
Osprey Baseball Stadium
          In an attempt to find a more perfect location for the Run Wild
Missoula Pumpkin Run, the event has moved to the Osprey Stadium and the
Kim Williams Trail area at the west end of Cregg Lane. Proceeds benefit the
Missoula Food Bank. For the second year in a row the Pumpkin Run is a
member of the Green Power Missoula Campaign which encourages renewable
energy development by Missoulians.
          The 400 meter event (for people 12 and under) will be held on the river
front trail near the Osprey Baseball Stadium. The 5K will be mostly on the
riverfront trail and will be a combination of pavement and gravel trails. There
are several bridges on this course, so event staff will do their best to the trails
clear of trolls and billy goats gruffs.
          This new location has ample parking for pedestrians, bicycles, pogo
sticks and automobiles. If you wish to volunteer for this event, please contact
Ben Schmidt at 542-1257. Hope to see you there.

View From The Back
I first explored the BOP idea with pace-mates in the Reston Runners (VA) a
decade ago. Several of us were frustrated on group runs because we always fell
behind, often felt discouraged, and sometimes got lost. I left Virginia before
the idea developed, but the seed was planted in the back of my mind. When I
joined Run Wild Missoula, I recognized a pattern: behind, discouraged, and
lost on group runs. I met others with similar experiences. The seed sprouted
and began to grow.
          About six months ago, the Back of the Pack (BOP) first gathered at the
Runner’s Edge for a meet-and-greet. A blizzard was raging, and the city
fathers had closed the streets. With the intrepid independence of runners
everywhere, some of us came out anyway. A month later, we did it again
(without a blizzard) and more people attended. The BOP was on its way. If we
fast-forward to the present, we can see how far the BOP has come in just six
months:
          We have a Run Wild Missoula e-mail list with 92 names.
          We publish an e-newsletter (BOP Bulletin), and updates (BOP
Postcards).
          We have a webpage on Run Wild Missoula’s website:
http://www.runwildmissoula.org/index.php/ID/2efe20c3/item/Back-of-the-
Pack/fuseaction/rwm.clubActivities.htm
          We have held monthly social runs in April, May, June, July, and
August. The next one is tentatively scheduled for September 23 (watch for
details).
          We have co-sponsored, produced, and are distributing free BOP
bandannas for easy identification and buddy-finding at larger running events.

                                                                               10
                                                      We have a visible presence at the monthly beer run.
                                                      We write a monthly BOP article for the RWM blog on the Make it
                                             Missoula website.
                                                      We have this monthly column, ‚View from the Back‛ (written by
                                             different BOPers).
                                                      We have developed an initial Buddy Locator database to connect
                                             pace-mates with similar running schedules and neighborhoods.
                                                      We organized BOP cheerleaders who welcomed and celebrated the
                                             accomplishments of 5:30-plus finishers in the Missoula Marathon.
                                                      We have been on TV! KPAX covered the BOP social run in Bonner
                                             August 14.
                                                      We presented Jeff and Barbara Galloway with BOP bandannas and
                                             welcomed them into the group. They were honored by the gesture.
                                                      Runners, run-walk-runners, and walkers at the Back of the Pack need
                                             not be alone, discouraged, or lost when they join Run Wild Missoula for a
                                             group event. We have a way to meet one another, to connect with buddies,
                                             and to recognize pace-mates in a crowd. If you resonate with this group, and
                                             are not yet on ‚the list,‛ e-mail backofpack@runwildmissoula.org.

                                                          the race I must be somewhere towards the front. Meanwhile my crew tells me
                                                          the course has been changed yet again due to a mud slide taking out one of the
                                                          aid stations ahead. Taking the news of the course change in stride it sounded
                                                          like it was shorter course and primarily downhill from here. (I learned later
                                                          that this was not the case, it in fact got longer and steeper!) So with the idea
                                                          that I was only 25 miles from the finish I started to push hard down the valley.
                                                          I’m in Switzerland now and the small villages I pass through look like
                                                          something out of a Fairy Tale. The children with their rouge aid stations set up
                                                          along the way like small lemonade stands. Running along side you handing

                                                          aid stations. Mike Wolfe is there. We get what we need from our crews (food,
                                                          water, much needed pep talks.) and the Montana Boys walk out together. We
                                                          climb for a while and it’s obvious Mike isn’t feeling great. I slowly pull away
                                                          from him wishing we could roll through the rest of this course together. As

                                                  Meanwhile Kelly is having one of the crazier experiences of her life as
                                        well. Armed with her passport, a large duffle filled with contingency gear, and
                                        her thumb, she has managed to internationally hitch rides all around Mont
                                        Blanc with other teams support crews. Most notably was Mike Wolfe’s crew
                                        from The North Face whose driver was an Italian rugby player named Seb, who
                                        drove a sporty Audi and had taken professional driving lessons. Needless to
                                        say it sounds like he handled the high and windy mountain roads along the
                                        route like a champ!
                                                  Back to the race<I get into Trient and Kelly tells me it’s a small climb
                                        up and over into Vallorcine (150k), I head out of there like a man on a mission,
Mike Foote’s race pack and gear         but quickly realize that the ‚small climb up and over‛ involves 3500 ft gain and
                                        about 4000 ft of decent. My quads still quiver at the thought of that section.
                                                  I sloooowwwwlllyyy drop into Vallorcine as the light fades into my
                                        second night and I’m officially cranky and tired thinking that I’ve been thrown
                                        for one hell of a loop by the decision to make the course longer and steeper after
                                        we already started this thing. What else can you do but keep moving. At the
                                        aid station, Kelly, who is also heading into her second sleepless night, stays
                                        positive. She gives me the necessities, deflects my negative comments, and tells
                                        me to get my $%& together and finish this race. This is exactly what I need to
                                        hear. Only 15k to go!
                                                  I’m heading down valley towards Chamonix now and I’ve subscribed
                                        to the Galloway program at this point. Striking deals with myself that include 4
                                        painful minutes of running for 2 blissful minutes of walking. The trail has
                                        punchy ups and downs that are harder to navigate than they should be. I
                                        finally start thinking of the finish line and how badly I want to be there. I am at
                                        my lowest point and sleep deprivation is inducing some impressive
                                        hallucinations. Amidst the low I am passed by a cheery Japanese runner
                                        singing CHAMONIX, CHAMONIX, CHAMONIX as he cruises by me down the
                                        trail.
                                                  This gives me the boost I need. I start moving more purposefully and
                                        as I contour around the last hillside the lights of Chamonix come into view.
                                        One last decent and then the surprisingly welcome feeling of pavement under
                                        my feet. It’s almost midnight and the streets are packed with fans. I feel my
                                        energy return and adrenaline surge. I’m running hard now and the music from
                                        the finish line gets louder. I hear the announcers stoking the crowd. Things

                                        has me awkwardly bow to the crowd with my arms raised. She is gracious and
                                        can tell this is new to me. She asks me to say a few words and puts the mic in
                                        my hand. All I can get out is, ‚these are the most beautiful mountains I have
                                        ever seen.‛
                                                  And now days later I am still processing it all. The grandeur of the
                                        mountains. The embrace of the culture. The world class athletes I was
                                        constantly in the presence of. The feeling of disbelief I had as I walked away
                                        from the finish line and Kelly told me I was the first American. On another day
                                        I could have easily been the 20th among the field of runners that came over this
                                        year from the U.S., but I couldn’t help but smile regardless.
                                                  So I guess that’s the story. Or, snippets of the story anyway. Thanks
                                        everyone who helped and supported me along on this crazy adventure. I
                                        thought of my friends and family and community so much along the trail
                                        knowing a lot of folks would be following the race. I thought of everyone
French Alps from Chamonix               wearing their Team Foote t-shirts and I think it kept me smiling, honest, and
                                        racing smart. Thanks again for getting my butt overseas!!!!!
                                                  That’s it for now. Until next time<       ~Mike Foote

                Run Wild Missoula Member Profiles
                Name: Jaime Troiano
                Age: 35
                Place of birth: Providence, RI
                Profession: CPA
                Seasoned or new to the sport: When I was little we lived just a few miles from
                the start of the Boston marathon and I remember my mom taking me to watch
                the gun go off and pointing out Bill Rodgers to me. My parents would drag me
                to local races and make me run the kids fun runs while they did the longer
                races, and although it seemed like torture at the time, somehow it stuck. I have
                been running ever since.
                Next race goal: I am visiting my parents in Florida at the end of November and
                I just signed up for a half marathon that runs through their neighborhood in
                Sarasota. Race day just happens to fall on my 36 th birthday so a sub-two hour
                finish would be a really great birthday present<
                Long Term Goal: To stay healthy and keep running!
                What keeps you motivated through a difficult run or what keeps you running
                generally?: I try to remind myself that to run is ALWAYS better than not to
                run. I have never once come back from a run and regretted that I did it, no
                matter how hard it was to get through. I have struggled with illness and injury
                over the last few years and it has really made me grateful for every run that I
                get to finish.
Jamie Troiano   Do you have a favorite local run, path or trail? I live and work very close to
                the river trail so most of runs tend to be along the Clark Fork just because of
                the convenience factor - but if I need to mix it up and give myself a challenge I
                have a loop that my dog and I love to run at Blue Mountain.
                Can’t do without: My Garmin! It is both my best friend and worst enemy. It
                satisfies my inner control freak but also forces to me to face reality about how
                fast and far I am really going. Before the Garmin I tended to round up the
                distance and round down the pace.
                Add anything else you’d like to include: Just how continually inspired I am by
                Missoula’s incredible running community and the resources and motivation
                available to runners. Whether you are a newbie or a veteran, this is a truly
                great place to be a runner!

                Editor’s Note: Thanks to Terry Stekly the newsletter begins a new series on member
                profiles. We hope that you will enjoy getting to know Run Wild Missoula members
                and we encourage you to say “hi” to them next time your paths cross.


                Run Wild Missoula News
                Letter from the Executive Director: Thank You, Volunteers
                Run Wild Missoula has grown in leaps and bounds in the past few years: We
                now have a few employees, over a dozen races, several successful training
                programs and over 1,200 members. But one thing is certain: We are still a
                primarily volunteer-run organization and we wouldn’t be able to do what we
                do without volunteers.
                          Over 1,000 people volunteer for Run Wild Missoula each year—some
                for a few hours to work registration or course control at a race while others
                give hundreds of hours a year to serve on a committee or the board of
                directors. The Missoula Marathon alone uses 400 volunteers on race day and
                has a committee of 35 people working year-round to ensure a great event.
                          It’s hard to express gratitude for all of the people who care so much
                about our running community and give their time to make it what it is.
                Luckily, volunteer work for Run Wild Missoula is mostly fun and always
                rewarding. Who doesn’t love watching their fellow runners smile across the
                finish line or see the work they put into an event or the organization

                                                                                                15

                                      Run Wild Missoula will participate in Run@Work day on Friday, September 16 with several
                                      organized group runs throughout Missoula. Run@Work Day was created by the Road Runners


                                                                                                                                      16
Club of America (RRCA) six years ago to promote physical activity and healthy living around
the country.
         The goal of Run@Work Day is to encourage adults to get 30-minutes of exercise each
day, in accordance with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, either before work,
during lunch, or immediately following work. Run@Work Day also encourages companies to
help employees schedule time for physical activity. Incorporating exercise into one’s daily
routine can markedly improve one’s overall physical health.
         The following group runs are planned in Missoula for Friday, September 16 at noon.
Unless specified all of the runs/walks will be approximately three miles long.

"The RRCA is excited to have Run Wild Missoula involved in our Run@Work Day series of
events‛, commented Jean Knaack, executive director of the RRCA. ‚Participation in the 6 th
Annual Run@Work Day is an important step in raising awareness about the importance of daily
physical activity. If adults can lead by example, if companies can encourage healthy living, then
together we can combat the national inactivity crisis gripping our nation.‛
         A survey conducted by the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation in January 2011
found that 85 percent of small companies (10-99 employees) and 76 percent of larger employers
(100-2,500) indicated an interest in developing running and walking clubs. Run@Work Day is a
great opportunity for our organization to highlight how local running clubs and events can work
with area businesses to meet their needs for developing running and walking programs for their
employees.

                                                              and a positive attitude. Loie was a member of the Run Wild Missoula

                                                              and transition and provided a business owner’s perspective. (She owned

                                                              will be missed on the Run Wild Missoula board, but we are delighted that
                                                              you will continue to be involved as the Missoula All-Women’s 5K race

                               Core Strength Training for Runners Fall Session 2011
This class is designed to keep a runner’s core strong. Core work conditions the body from the
abdominals to the arms and legs. Often runners are much stronger in their lower extremities than
their core. This results in an imbalance in the body that it will continuously try to remedy. Classes are
held at MOVE Missoula, 1900 Broadway, C (Mon. & Thurs. classes) and the Runner’s Edge, 325 N.
Higgins Ave. (Wed. class). Mats provided, comfortable clothing recommended, running shoes not
required.

To register or find out more about these three sessions offered, email Alison Laundrie at
alison@movemissoula.com and send registration and payment to: Run Wild Missoula, Box 1573,
