So, you want to run a marathon, but you have a lot of questions. Should you load up on carbs before your race? Should you try going barefoot? Should you follow the “10 percent” rule, increasing your milage by no more than a small margin each week? A lot of the conventional wisdom about running is changing, and it's less than three months away from the Baltimore Running Festival. But don't worry. We're here to help. We've convened a panel of area running coaches - exercise physiologist and Baltimore-based running coach Brian Hand; Amy Horst, the head track coach at Loyola University Maryland; and Dave May, co-owner of CrossFit Frederick and a certified endurance coach - to give their advice on how to run long distances effectively and efficiently.

Team Kaya's dragon boat sped quickly past others racing along the waters of Baltimore's harbor Saturday morning, leaving other teams to wonder if it had a secret weapon. "It's that girl in the front. Look how small she is," said one man, wondering out loud if smaller team members mean a lighter, faster boat. The 17 teams competing in Saturday's event hosted by The Baltimore Dragon Boat Club at Tide Point Marina had spent weeks training for the grueling races, in which they paddle at top speed for 500 meters - at least two minutes for most boats.
