Start slow. Conserving energy is critical in distance running. If there are a lot of runners, be patient. You’ll need the extra energy for later on in the race.
Maintain a steady pace. Don’t run too fast or you’ll run out of steam. Find a pace that’s comfortable for you so that you don’t cramp or fatigue.
Drink plenty of fluids. Before, during and after the race make sure you consume at least six to eight ounces of water or a sports drink every 15 to 20 minutes to stay hydrated and keep your body cool, especially when running in hot weather.
Sea Diva Organics in a few words?
Based in: Stuart
How it started: Lorna Neadow Day started Sea Diva Organics after learning she had a thyroid disease. She visited no less than five doctors, and they all told her she had to learn to live with the disease. Not wanting to settle for that answer, she began searching for natural remedies. She started producing bath salts, which she says hold key nutrients that the body needs but cannot produce by itself. Others began asking for her homemade salts, and it quickly turned into a business.
Recently I got a letter about a great event. It was the 50th anniversary of the FIHA, the Florida Indian Hobbyist Association. I was fascinated about this event.

I’m not a native South Floridian. So it’s taken me time to learn the quirks and the intricacies that make up every pocket of South Florida – from the laid-back beauty of the Treasure Coast, to the international vibrancy of Miami, to the bustling waterways of Fort Lauderdale.
But one iconic South Florida neighborhood has always seemed just out of reach, untouchable: Palm Beach. It sets itself apart with legendary stories of the Kennedys, with mansions along South Ocean Boulevard and with the designer-packed Worth Avenue.
