Shoe and Tell
Free marathon training. A 3.5-mile run/walk. Olympic gold medalist Frank Shorter on hand (foot?) modeling peak-performance strategies. It aint nothin but a pavement-pounding party, yall, during the SRP/P.F. Changs Rock 'n' Roll Arizona Marathon Training Kick-Off for Januarys blowout run. Seasoned experts such as Shorter -- winner of the 1972 Summer Olympics marathon -- provide tips for shaky beginners and for the more-seasoned sort. The party angle includes live music, free T-shirts, and refreshments from Shamrock Farms, NYPD Pizza, and Michelob Ultra, as well as prizes from Southwest Airlines and running-shoe hawker New Balance.
