For details and the latest updates, watch your inbox for e-mails and check out the official marathon website, ingnycmarathon.org. Even if youve run with us before, there are lots of exciting new activities and events this yearthe Marathon Opening Ceremony featuring the Parade of Nations and Inaugural Hall of Fame Presentation on Friday night, the NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K race through Midtown on Saturday morning for marathoners, friends, and family, and much more. Its hard to describe the special energy in NYC during Marathon Week, as 45,000 runners from around the world assemble to take on the challenge of running 26.2 miles through our incredible city. Perhaps Chilean miner Edison Pea captured the feeling best last year when he said after his historic run: I wanted to show the world that I could do it. I struggled with myself, with my own pain. But I made it to the finish line. Thats what its all about, right? Were just so excited that youll be with us this year to take on the challenge, the struggleand the achievement of crossing that finish line in Central Park. This year, you can also look forward to unparalleled access to the race, even if youre not running. In addition to our exciting broadcast coverage, were offering an enhanced Mobile Spectator App that lets marathoners and spectators put all 26.2 miles in their pocket. And, as ever, we have a top field of world-class athletes including defending mens champion Gebre Gebremariam, as well as an extraordinary wheelchair field; more than 200 charity partners aiming to top last years fundraising total of $30.8 million; and our own NYRR Team for Kids helping us transform the lives of children. It will all be here before you know itbut youll be ready, trust us. And our teamhardworking NYC agencies, dedicated sponsors, the best volunteers anywhere, and amazing NYRR staff and board of directorswill be ready for you. We can hardly wait. Yours in running,

Samuel Rudin (1896- 1975)


An avid long distance runner and civic leader, Samuel Rudin rose from humble beginnings on New Yorks Lower East Side to become one of New Yorks major builders and owners of real estate. Rudin joined the Pastime Athletic Club in the Bronx in 1917 while a student at City College and competed in long distance races as a member of the club through 1923. In 1925, he founded the Rudin Management Company, a real estate firm which presently owns and manages 22 multi-story apartment houses and 16 office buildings in Manhattan. Samuel Rudin was actively involved with many charitable organizations in New York City, including the United Jewish Appeal, Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, City College Fund and the Boy Scouts of America. In 1967, he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by Iona College in New Rochelle, New York. Today the Rudin Family continues to play a major philanthropic role in New York City.

FROM OUR MEDICAL DIRECTOR


STAY SAFE and HEALTHY in TRAINING and on RACE DAY
BY STUART WEISS, MD, NYRR MEDICAL DIRECTOR Running is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself, but as in any sport, there can be health and medical risks. Follow these tips to stay safe. HAVE A PHYSICAL EXAM BEFORE YOU START A REGULAR EXERCISE PROGRAM. Tell your physician the planned volume and intensity of your training and racing. Be as clear and precise as possible; for example: I plan to start a walk/run program and gradually build up to running. My goal is to run a five-hour marathon in November. The exam should also include a discussion with your doctor about health risks based on your family and personal health history. HAVE AN ANNUAL PHYSICAL, NO MATTER HOW HEALTHY YOUR LIFESTYLE. Many conditions and syndromes are unrelated to your exercise level and have mild or vague symptoms or no symptoms at all. If youre over 40, get an exercise stress test, and follow up after the exam by getting any other tests that are recommended. See your doctor immediately at any time if you experience new chest pain, pressure, unusual sweating, or shortness of breath. Less urgently, see a sports medicine physician if you feel any pain while running that causes you to change your form. USE CAFFEINE CAUTIOUSLY BEFORE RACES. If you habitually drink a cup or two of coffee or tea in the morning before you run or race, or consume a caffeinecontaining energy gel during a run, feel free to do the same on race day. If you dont normally use caffeine before or during your run, dont do so on race day; you may experience dehydration or stomach upset. Some research suggests that the caffeine equivalent of two cups of coffee can limit blood flow to the heart during exercise. Discuss your risk with your doctor so you can make the best decision. CONSIDER TAKING A BABY ASPIRIN BEFORE YOU RUN OR RACE. Some doctors recommend a daily baby aspirin (81 mg) to runners to reduce the risk of sudden death while running due to clumps of platelets forming in the blood. Discuss this risk with your doctor so that you can make an informed and responsible decision. TAKE SALT BEFORE AND DURING RUNS AND RACES OF 10K OR LONGER, unless salt is contraindicated by your doctor. Consume salty foods in the days leading up to the run or race, and ingest common table salt before and during your workout or race to maintain the bodys water-to-sodium balance. Take one fast-food salt

FROM OUR MEDICAL DIRECTOR


packet at the start of a race. If youre running a half-marathon or marathon, take another salt packet at the halfway point. After the race, drink a sports drink that has some sodium, and eat salted foods. DRINK FOR THIRST. If you feel thirsty while running or racing, have 4 to 8 ounces of fluid (preferably a sports drink that has some sodium in it) at an aid station or whenever you feel that you need it. If you arent thirsty, dont feel compelled to drink. If you cant use thirst as a guide, drink no more than a cup (8 ounces) of fluid every 30 minutes. Do not overdrink. Overhydrating can lead to hyponatremia (low blood sodium); this condition can lead to nausea, fatigue, vomiting, weakness, sleepiness, andin the most severe instancesseizures, coma, and death. Before you run, check the color of your urine: It should be pale yellow, like lemonade. Dark-colored urine (like tea) indicates dehydration; completely clear urine may indicate overhydration. In training, weigh yourself before and after your runs to get a sense of how much to drink to replace the fluids lost. You should aim to weigh the same or no more than 2 percent less after you train. Youll need to drink more in warm, humid weather than on a cool, dry day. AVOID NSAIDS (NON-STEROIDAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS) starting 24 hours before your race. These drugs, which include ibuprofen and naproxen sodium, can limit blood flow to the kidneys, increasing the risk of low sodium (hyponatremia). You can start taking them again six hours after the race. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a safe alternative before and during the race. DONT TAKE ANTI-DIARRHEAL OR COLD MEDICINES ON RACE DAY. These drugs can have a dehydrating effect. ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR BODYDONT OVEREXTEND. Train sensibly increase the distance and speed of your runs gradually, and recover by resting and refueling between hard workoutsso that you dont dig yourself into a hole. Working with a coach or training group can help you stay within safe and healthy parameters. Listen to your body. Dont ignore feelings of illness. An off or just not right feeling can be a sign of a serious medical problem. The marathon medical team is available at the start, every mile along the course, and at the finish. Most runners who spend time at a medical aid station are able to finish the race. ON RACE DAY. Make sure your friends and family know the Runner Information Hotline number: 800.496.6193. They can call that number if theyre unsure of your whereabouts after the race; they must know your race number.
