Spotlight On Club Ed

 

One Of Our Faves

The South Bay is fortunate to have many run clubs. One of our personal favorites is Club Ed! This group always has a huge presence at the #mb10k each year and we appreciate their support and participation.

We had the good fortune to interview the head honcho himself, Ed Avol and a prominent member of the club and elite runner in her own right, Nathalie Higley.

About Club Ed

Club Ed is a running club whose goal is to help runners of all ages and fitness enjoy the sport of running at all levels of speed, experience, and talent. It provides organized venues for members to train and experienced guidance to help runners of all levels improve. With a low-key approach to personal improvement fueled by each runner’s individual motivation, the club provides a way for new runners to meet other local runners, discover new places to run, and to learn and practice better ways to train. It also encourages support of the local running community by helping out at local races and encouraging members to challenge themselves through periodic racing.

For more iInformation about Club Ed click here.

Our Q & A With Ed

When and how did you start club Ed?

I previously had coached the Manhattan Beach Track Club (MBTC) in the latter half of the 1980s, then moved away for a job opportunity. When I returned to the area in 1992, several former runners from MBTC approached me and asked if I would coach them again…so I did.

What is your running philosophy?

I approach running as a lifetime activity – at most any age, you can train and run and race, at a level of competition and achievement that you define for yourself. Running is social at times, and hard work at other times. Training–wise, I believe in a strong foundation of distance upon which interval training, recovery days, and a structured plan (instead of random running) combine to lead to personal improvement…but it comes from the individual – I cannot “force” you to run.

What is your favorite #mb10k moment?

Historically, a highlight for me was something we don’t do anymore -- running out and back on the pier (in the old days of the race) in the last rush to the finish. Nowadays, an annual highlight is getting to that seemingly never-ending last mile along the Strand, where the Finish Line doesn’t seem to ever be getting much closer…but you somehow get there!

What are your best tips to train for a 10k?

Give yourself time to build a base – trying to do this in a few weeks is a prescription for injury and frustration. For most any distance and any running, getting a training partner – someone with whom to share the highs and lows, someone to keep you “honest” in your effort and consistency, even someone to “guilt” you into showing up on those days you are dragging and don’t want to run – is the best thing you can do for your training.

What's your best race tip for a first time/novice runner for a 10k?

Have a plan … and work towards it. Preparation, consistency, confidence, and commitment dramatically improve the chances for success.

Our Q & A With Nathalie

Why do you run with Club Ed?

I always feel it is better to run with a group. The club is an opportunity to get together and train with people who are very friendly and have access to a very knowledgeable coach. There’s a need to be social, to be challenged and to be better and the club meet those needs. It also feels like a family and a social gathering, you see these people on a regular basis and you share a passion for running with them.

How many #mb10k races have you run?

I think about 17 or 18.

How many of these have you won?

12! (Way to go, Nathalie!)

What do you love about the #mb10k?

It is always nice to get to the finish and see the beautiful pier. It is a great course and a challenging course. I enjoy seeing all the people cheering you on and listening to the music and all the support along the way. It is fun and entertaining and always fun to head off to the Hometown Fair Beer Garden afterwards!

This website is dedicated to keeping the community informed about all things from beach volleyball to education to where to get some grub and all things in between.

The Birth Of Dig MB

Jeanne Fratello, editor, saw that there was a need for a daily news source for all the events going on in Manhattan Beach and wanted to create a real booster for the city and share the great and positive things that happen here.

Where Did The Name Come From?

A lot of ideas were passed around but they decided to go with Dig MB because they really dig and love this place. What’s not to love?! It’s also evocative of digs made in volleyball and the simple act of digging in the sand.

How Dig MB Spreads The Good News

Besides updating their website constantly, Jeanne aims to send out a daily email newsletter featuring an event or issue. She also manages their very active Facebook account as well as Instagram and Twitter. Make sure to follow them so you can stay in the know!

You can reach out to her through email or social channels to alert her about an upcoming event. Dig MB is here for you and is a resource for the community of Manhattan Beach.

Spotlight On South Bay By Jackie

Jackie’s website is another gem to read about happenings not only in Manhattan Beach, but all over the South Bay. Jackie’s site is bursting with information about where to dine, what events are taking place and even an internet radio show highlighting those making a difference in our community. We love her So Bae section which features links for tweens, teens & young adults!
