Mike Long- a running giant Mike and Donna Long are now members of the Seashore Strid- ers racing family and this fall have found themselves showing up at the starting line in local 5K events. Their story is interesting as both rookie runners followed the Couch4o-a-5K in 10 Weeks program that I wrote years ago, which is still popular today with walkers wanting to transition to a 5K. "We followed the program and modified it a bit, repeating weeks until we felt we were ready to move on to a new chal- ! lenging week," explained Mik ! Mike competed in the Dolphin Dash 5K back in September and I: ran 32:29 with Donna at 37:29. f .Recently they took part in the Huff, Puff and Race for Pumpkin jl Pie 5K, where Mike ran 28:45, while Donna was at 34:21. The i other connection Mike has with ! the Seashore Striders is that Mike is the store manager of the local Rehoboth Beach Super G, and his store is a sponsor of the {i Seashore Striders events, supply- ! mg the post-race food for the event.
