Four Top Russian Runners Hit the Trail at Life
Life College opened a new five-mile running trail on October 2nd, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony which was attended by Marietta Mayor Joe Mack Wilson, Brigadeer General Terry Whitnell, and Life President Dr. Sid Williams. The trail, which is a joint effort between the college, city, and military, has an unusual feature: two man-made sand dunes that help athletes develop strength and power.
Olga Markova, this year's Boston Marathon winner, and three other top female distance runners from Russia trained at the running trail for the New York City marathon November 1st. In addition to the Russian athletes, Mexico's top 1,500-meter runner in 1991, Arturo Espejel, was at Life training for two months.
Said Dr. Williams, "Our goal is not only to attract Olympic-hopeful athletes from around the world but to offer the finest facilities for the Cobb County community."
