The post What is a St. Jude Hero? appeared first on Rock n Roll Marathon Series.

I have run as a St. Jude Hero for over a dozen races over the last four years and find it rewarding time and time again.  I’ve been on the hospital campus and have seen the amazing things that are happening in Memphis and know that by running as a Hero I am helping to make those miracles happen every day.  Sometimes it’s the unexpected things that really make an impact.  I realized after a couple of years that I had inspired others through my fundraising to become a St. Jude Hero also.  The more people that are out there working to make a difference the more effective the program becomes.

There are days when it’s stressful, there are times when you don’t feel like posting your fundraising link on Facebook again, there are fundraising ideas that don’t quite yield the results you were hoping.  But I listened to a St. Jude patient’s mother last year at the Heroes pasta party tell her story.  She was getting ready to run her first half marathon the next day and her words resonated more than anything I have ever listened to.  She talked about her strength as a runner coming from watching her child’s strength as they battled.  Her final sentence:

“Running is hard, but cancer is hard too.”

Today’s post is written by Rock ‘n’ Blog member and St. Jude Hero, Joe Raymond. Find him on Twitter, Instagram, and follow his blog at RUN8VA, Living Life an Octave Higher.

St. Jude HeroWhat is St. Jude?

Each year the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN helps thousands of children battle through childhood cancers. It does so at zero cost to the patients and their families. This means that no family ever sees a bill from St. Jude, not just for medical care but also for travel, food, or housing. This is possible through contributions made through various outlets that help fundraise the $2 million it takes to operate the hospital each day.

What is a St. Jude Hero?

The St. Jude Heroes program was developed as a means for runners to fundraise for the hospital while participating in races across the country, most prominently at the St. Jude Memphis Marathon weekend held annually in December & the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville Marathon & 1/2 Marathon weekend (formerly known as the Country Music Marathon). In 2016, the Heroes program has expanded to be a featured charity partner at most North American Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series event weekends.

How do I fundraise as a St. Jude Hero?

Smiles for miles as Joe crosses the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville finish line!

With the opportunity for more fundraising comes the opportunity for a little more confusion.  So here’s a quick breakdown of the fundraising levels and process!

Classic Level

This means that you do not have a minimum fundraising requirement.  You must still purchase your race entry as normal.  You will still qualify for incentives such as the St. Jude Heroes Race Singlet and any add ons.  This is a great option if you have never done fundraising before and aren’t sure how your network of friends, family, and neighbors will respond. There’s no pressure, no deadline, and it’s all going to work at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Bronze Level

This is the lowest fundraising minimum, usually $500. This level guarantees your race entry, Heroes singlet, and (depending on the event) a few other race day perks like separate gear check & private pre-race bathrooms.

Silver Level

Usually a $1,000 fundraising commitment, this level includes all that the Bronze level does but also usually includes a pasta dinner the night before the race.  Especially if you are thinking of running the St. Jude Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville – then you don’t want to miss this event! Each year St. Jude brings in patients and families to tell their stories and help show how your fundraising efforts are helping to make a difference in their lives.

Gold Level

This $3,000 fundraiser earns your hotel accommodations for two nights on race weekend.  The hosting hotel is usually near the start of the race.

Platinum Level

As a $4,500 fundraiser you not only earn race entry, pasta party, and hotel accommodations but you will also earn your airfare roundtrip to the race weekend.

St. Jude Hero
Enjoying the race weekend experience

How do I register to become a St. Jude Hero?

St. Jude Hero
Run for a cause, run with St. Jude

To register as a Hero, select your event and go through the registration process for your Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series event as normal. Select “St. Jude Hero – Distance” then select your fundraising level on the next page. Then complete the race registration like you do for every other Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series event.

Choosing the fundraising level that is right for you and fits your needs is the easy part. Then you begin your fundraising! St. Jude has a simple to use and simple to customize website that allows you to reach out to your network of potential donors and tell your story about why you are running for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and why you want to make your miles count for more.

Run Nashville as a Hero

What if I’m already registered?

If you are already registered to run a race but still want to support St. Jude, no problem! You can always upgrade your registration to become a St. Jude Hero at the fundraising level of your choice. Then as you hit your fundraising goals you will qualify for St. Jude perks, including refund of your original race registration. Don’t forget, you have an additional three weeks after the race to meet your fundraising target.

CARLSBAD, Calif.  – Recognized as the ‘World’s Fastest 5k’ with a storied history of 16 world records, the 2016 Carlsbad 5000 will feature current world record holder Meseret Defar. Defar set the world record of 14:46 at Carlsbad in 2006, the first of her three event victories.

2010 Carlsbad 5000

“I can’t believe 10 years have passed since I set the world record in Carlsbad. A lot has happened to me on and off the track since then, but it remains a race which is close to my heart for many reasons,” said Defar. “Since the birth of our daughter Gabrielle last year I’m now back racing well and my indoor performances show me that I am ready to run well, run fast and hopefully post another quick time.”

A signature event of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, the Carlsbad 5000 will celebrate 31 years the weekend of April 2 – 3, 2016. The race is internationally known as the “World’s Fastest 5K” because 16 world records, 8 U.S. records, along with numerous national and age-group records have been set on the scenic oceanfront course.

“I’m excited for the rest of the year, I’m looking forward to the world indoor championships in Portland this weekend and then Carlsbad is my next challenge before turning attention to the track and the Rio Olympics,” she added.

Event weekend kicks off with a Junior Carlsbad pre-registration party on Friday, April 1st hosted at the Carlsbad Village Faire. On Saturday, April 2nd more than 1,500 junior racers, age 12 and under, will take part in one of the eleven age group races. All runners receive a t-shirt and finisher’s medal for their efforts. Sunday’s ‘Party by the Sea’ gets started as soon as the first runners cross the finish line. After enjoying the scenic 3.1-mile course, runners aged 21 and over can step into the beer garden, sip two free beers from Pizza Port and enjoy a live music.

Washington D.C. has always been a city of beauty, but on Saturday, at the fifth edition of the Rock ‘n’ Roll D.C. Marathon & 1/2 Marathon, the nation’s capital was especially scenic for 24,000 runners who turned out in gorgeous spring-like conditions to take part in the race.

After a heartfelt rendering of the national anthem within sight of iconic monuments like the Washington Monument, runners started out down the broad expanse of Constitution Avenue that runs alongside the National Mall.

Both the half marathon and marathon races began together and the two lead packs quickly separated according to event. 

Mizael Carrera, a Puerto Rican living in Addison, Illinois absolutely dominated the half marathon, clocking one hour, 6 minutes, and 17 seconds to break the tape in front of RFKstadium with a wave of the hand. The 24-year-old had a huge day, setting a 2-minute PR and winning the race with a huge margin over second-place finisher, Carlos Jamieson (1:07:53). Third place was awarded to Andrew Brodeur who was overcome by Jamieson in a sprint finish to the line.

The race felt good,” said champion Carrera afterwards. “I ran it alone, and didn’t run 1:05 like I had hoped, but I’m happy with it.” Carrera, who before today, held a 1:08:08 half-marathon PR, is setting his sights on a 2:19 marathon so that he can represent Puerto Rico at the Summer Olympics in Rio. When asked how it felt to run pretty much the entire race alone, Carrera shrugged his shoulders and flashed a smile. “I was in great shape going into the race. It was fine. The only hard part for me was the big hill [at 10K], but I’m pleased with how I did.”

The first woman to cross the half marathon finish line was Bethany Sachtleben who covered the 13.1 miles in 1:19:45, which is an average of 6:06 per mile. Sachtleben broke the finish-line tape wearing an “old school” yellow tee shirt that read “Mason Women’s Soccer.” Today’s victory was a thrilling experience for the 24-year-old champion from Manassas, Virginia. “Today was amazing,” she said. “These Rock ‘n’ Roll races are always a blast. There is so much support out there. I loved the course, especially when I passed the Georgetown Running Club. They pumped me up when I needed it.”

Second place in the women’s half when to Kerry Allen (1:20:10). 

The third-place finisher, Hannah Eckstein (1:20:28), came across the finish wearing a Run for St. Jude tee shirt. “I have had some family members who have battled cancer and wanted to chip in to show my support,” Eckstein said. The 23-year-old, who works in Washington D.C. said she found out about the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital after seeing an ad for it on the Metro. “I wanted to make today count,” she said. Eckstein ran her debut today and said she owes to her coach and members of the Georgetown Running Club. “It’s such a great team,” she said of them.

The men’s marathon went to the ultimate ringer, Alfredo Arevalo Reyes, a Guatemalan citizen who won in 2:30:05 while holding his country’s flag over his head. Reyes, an Olympian who boasts a 2:12 marathon PR, signed up to race yesterday and led from start to finish. “I have never run in a Rock ‘n’ Roll race before and I have to say this was the most fun I’ve ever had in a marathon,” he said through a translator. Second and third place were awarded to Steve Chu (2:34:11) and Dirian Bonilla (2:37:25).

The first woman to cross the marathon finish line was last year’s champion, Martha Nelson, who smiled when she saw her 2:58:09 finishing time. “I’m a born and bred Washington D.C. native, so it’s really nice to win this race,” she said afterwards. “The bands and the support on the course were great. It can get pretty lonely out there as a marathoner, so these kinds of things help.” Lori Nedescu (2:59:56) came in behind Nelson, while third place was awarded to Katie Moran.

A 5K was also held on Saturday. Dickson Mercer (16:10) was the men’s winner and Kendahl Melvin (20:56) prevailed in the women’s division.

True to the spirit of all Rock ‘n’ Roll races, runners and their families got their funk on at the Toyota Rock ‘n’ Roll Concert when Tower of Power took to the stage in front of the Armory and RFK Stadium.

Oly_Trials_2016_JARED

2015 US Marathon National Champion, Jared Ward, raced in unseasonably hot and humid conditions at the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials where he secured a spot on Team USA. The big story of the day was the tough race conditions. Nutrition played a key role for Jared in his impressive 2:12:00 marathon performance. To help you prepare for your Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon, Jared shares how he prepared for and raced to success. With the much of the US forecasting warmer than usual temperatures this race season, preparedness and proper nutrition will be key to your success too!

How did the heat impact you during the Olympic Marathon Trials and what steps did you take prior to the race to prepare for the heat?

Coach’s advice for many race day scenarios is just to get really, really fit. We did do some indoor running, etc. where we sweat more to try to prepare, but at the end of the day the plan was to get really, really fit, and then try to replicate my preparation and performance from the 2015 LA Marathon.

(Jared is coached by 2x Olympic Marathoner and BYU Head Coach Ed Eyestone and won the US National Marathon Championship at the 2015 LA Marathon.

Could you share with us what nutrition products you used days before the race to prepare for the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials and why?

Absolutely! I used GLUKOS protein powder mix, GLUKOS protein bars and GLUKOS energy products everyday in preparation for the trials. I usually have a protein bar around 9pm to fight off any hunger but also because it gets into my system faster than anything else and makes me feel fresh and ready for the next day. I used the GLUKOS protein powder usually in the morning, they taste like a milkshake! About 72 hours prior to the race I started carbo loading and switched from the GLUKOS protein products to the energy products. I used primarily the GLUKOS Energy drink mix and my favorite bar – GLUKOS Energy chocolate. Those things seriously taste like a brownie!

Which GLUKOS products did you use the morning of the race and during the race?  How did it affect your performance and what did it make you feel?

I ate a bit of the GLUKOS chocolate energy bar about an hour before the race, then a GLUKOS gel on the start line. I also packed an additional GLUKOS gel with me that I took in the first couple miles of the race when the pace was chill. The rest of the race I just fueled with GLUKOS energy powder drink mix in my water bottles. It worked great. It is the first and only energy/electrolyte replenisher I have been able to stomach well while running.

GLUKOS really did give me the energy I needed to make it through. There were a lot of drop-outs in this race, runners were really struggling in the heat and struggling to get the needed fuel in. I attribute a large portion of my success to the GLUKOS fuel I was using.

301A2608_A

After the race, what was your nutrition strategy?

I didn’t feel like eating for hours afterwards, with the exception of a GLUKOS chocolate energy bar. That was really the only thing that sounded good for about 8 hours after the marathon.

For the over 550,000 Rock nRoll Marathon runners that are now cheering for you on your journey to the Rio Olympic Games, what one running tip would you offer to them to run their best marathon?

I believe you’ve got to replicate, as much as possible your training runs to mimic your race in temperature, terrain and nutrition. For example, if your race is a hilly course, your training runs should also include a good amount of hills. The same applies to nutrition. You need to be using GLUKOS products everyday in training runs to best prepare for and simulate your upcoming race.

If theres one suggestion you would make to our Rock nRoll marathoners on how to most effectively use GLUKOS Energy and Protein products to fuel their marathon, what would that be?

I seriously believe that GLUKOS is key. Take whichever GLUKOS products taste and settles best to you frequently and in small amounts throughout the entire race. I used the GLUKOS energy powder mix every 15 minutes in the LA Olympic Trials Marathon, and would have taken it more frequently if they would have allowed me more fueling stations. GLUKOS could have easily been the difference for me between making the Olympic team or not. GLUKOS will also be the difference for you in a successful Rock n’ Roll Marathon.

GLUKOS is the Official Gel & Gummie of the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon Series. Learn more about GLUKOS at glukosenergy.com.
