The 3rd Annual Ogden Marathon, Utah’s Spring Run Off, Saturday May 3rd, 2003 The word is out and runners from all over the United States are on their way to “Utah’s Spring Run Off,” The Ogden Marathon. Events for May 3 include: The Marathon, The Marathon Relay, (6:30 a.m., start east of Perception Park, HWY 39, 7 miles East of Huntsville), and a 5K fun run/walk (7:30 a.m., start on the Ogden River Parkway near Dinosaur Park. 5K check-in and same day registration will be at the Dinosaur Park parking lot). And new this year, the KIDS K. This is a one mile run, walk, or roll through the Ogden Marathon Finish line. Start time is 8:00 a.m. near 18th street and Washington Blvd. Registration for this one mile event is $10 for kids. Each Child will receive an Ogden KIDS K shirt and a finisher’s medal. Utah’s Spring Run Off, Training Runs and Registration Registration for the Utah’s 2003 Spring Run off has begun. The first registration came from Terry Grimley of Lehi, Utah. Since that date in late 2002, Ogden Marathon registrations have come in from all of the United States, Canada and even a couple from Africa. Last years event hosted over 2200 runners. Our projections state that we should reach 3000 for 2003. The Ogden Marathon has become known as the marathon for runners looking to run their personal record and for runners wanting to run their first marathon. Utah’s Spring Run Off has something for everyone and that seems to be its biggest appeal. Local runners really love this early in the year event for the fact that it forces them to train during the winter when usually they may take a break from running. There are training runs scheduled in both Salt Lake City and Ogden for this event. If runners want experience, good advice and support they should choose these events. The Salt Lake City contact and training series is promoted and sponsored by the Salt Lake Running Co. 801-4849144 and the Ogden Marathon Training Series in Ogden is promoted by the Ogden Marathon and Body & Sole Sports 801-627-0532. Support the Runners Many of our past Runners commented on the great support from the community and volunteers. The Event staff encourages residents along the course to find a way to get involved. You may volunteer to help at an aid station or simply provide much needed encouragement to the runners along the course. In any case, don’t miss your chance to catch a glimpse of the race. The event will be great for the whole Family, you can run, walk, or just come and enjoy the music food and fun at the sports festival. Don’t miss the second Annual Ogden Marathon and Sports Festival, presented by Ogden Coke.

Americans use more than 80 billion aluminum cans annually, which equals about 16 cans for every man, woman, and child in the world. Recycling saves 90 percent of the aluminum used. It takes about the same amount of energy to make 20 cans from recycled aluminum as it does to make one can from the non-recycled mineral. The energy saved from recycling one aluminum can is enough to run a television for three hours. Recycling saves more than 11 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, enough to supply the residential needs of New York City for six months. Air pollution from sulfur dioxides that create acid rain and fluorine gas is cut by 95 percent when cans are made from recycled aluminum. Myths and Facts about Dyslexia Myth: Children who write letters back ward or reverse them may have dyslexia. Fact: Backward writing is common among children learning to write, whether or not they have dyslexia. Myth: Dyslexia is a visual problem. Fact: The bulk of research now suggests that reading disabilities stem from difficulties with language rather than vision. Researchers think children with dyslexia have trouble identifying the tiny sounds that make up words—such as the “c” sound in “cat.” Myth: Children can outgrow dyslexia. Fact: Children with dyslexia become adults with dyslexia. If they are identified and given the right kind of help early, poor readers can learn to compensate for their disability, and read accurately. Still, reading may always be difficult for them. Researchers say that children with reading disabilities whose problems are not caught by age 9 will not catch up with their peers by the time they graduate from high school. Myth: Children with dyslexia will read better if only they will try harder. Fact: Children with dyslexia try hard, but they face frustration and discouragement. Accommodations and learning strategies will help them succeed. Myth: More boys than girls have dyslex ia. Fact: As many girls as boys may have reading disabilities. Girls’ read ing problems, however, more often go undetected. Note: This information was provided of the Learning Disabilities of Utah Association.
