Editor's Letter

We’re approaching the time of the year –at least, the time of this

year –that runners might actually enjoy taking a back seat to cyclists.

The 2015 UCI Road World Cycling Championships –the

“Worlds” –will be held here Sept.19-27, and for nine days Richmond

will become the center of the cycling universe. About 1,000

top-level cyclists from more than 70 countries will flock here

to compete, and we should welcome them warmly.

This is a rare opportunity to show off the man-made and

natural features of metro Richmond, from its cobblestones

to its urban riverside park system. It’s the first time in 29

years the Worlds are being held in the U.S., and –like the

Olympics –cyclists will be competing for the glory of their

respective nations, not for their pro teams.

Many in the running community will be volunteering

during the competition. We stand reminded that running

and cycling are cousins –related by a common goal of

maintaining peak physical health and enjoying that pursuit.

A number of articles in this issue of Miles and Minutes

underline the closeness of that relationship. Michelle

Baltz (page 16) writes about the many benefits of crosstraining

–adding biking, yoga, weights and other fitness

techniques to achieve a bikini-ready body. Physical therapist

Damien Howell (page 17) goes a step farther. He cites experts

who say performing an activity the exact same way, day in and

day out, puts a load on the same tissue, thereby increasing

the risk of overuse injury. The solution? Cross-training, and

working different muscle groups by varying your routine.

Don Garber (Page 8) tells about eight teams that recently

ran the Virginia Capital Trail to help determine the feasibility

of staging relay races once the trail is completed. (Garber

notes wryly that while the trail will be a great attraction for

cyclists, its name is not the Virginia Capital Bike Trail. It’s

for runners, too.)

Lastly, Becky Seidel (Page 9) writes about two Sports Backers

events planned in tandem with the bicycle races. “Dominion

Conquer the Cobbles” will feature a chance for runners and

amateur cyclists (separate events on separate nights) to ride or

run the same course the pro cyclists will tackle.

So, in September, let’s run on down –or ride our bikes –to cheer on our cycling cousins who represent the best in the game.
