CLERMONT, FL—-On November 20, 2016, Alicia Weber, an advocate for soft surface running, dreamed of achieving her 113th victory in the Clermont Clay Trail 5k and her dream came true. On a sunny, 50 degree morning, Weber faced 241 great competitors who shared the same mindset of “soft surface running is the way to go” and she finished as the first woman on the hilly, sandy, bumpy course on Schofield Road on the Clermont Clay Trail (and 4th overall) in 21:50.
It was an out and back 1.55 mile course (10:46 out and 11:04 back for 21:50). She was shooting for low 10’s at the half-way mark, but with the many bumps and thick sand, she knew it would take longer. The challenging terrain and extra strength and balance required draws Alicia to events on sand, dirt, and off-terrain. The races do not focus so much on the time, but rather the fitness required to go as fast possible on the courses. The thicker the sand, the longer the ground contact time, and the double the effort for a workout = greater the challenge and more health benefits. Due to the soft surface, your legs feel really great when you are done. Soft surface running is the healthy choice for running, which brings you closer to nature.
The Clermont Clay Trail Race drew a total of 658 competitors (242 in the 5k and 416 in the 15k). This is tremendous participation, which is greater than in many road races. Many other runners agree that soft surface running is the way to go for longevity as a runner and athlete. The races bring awareness to clay trails and raise funds to restore and build more clay trails in the area.
Alicia’s 113th Victory on Clermont Clay Trail
“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is Alicia’s 11th competition for 2016 and her final race of the season. She competed in 4 sports. She competed in one world championship (23rd in world), two world qualifiers (both first place), one national championship (2nd place), regional championships (1st and 2nd place), and four local Florida events. She competed in cross country running, beach running, paddle boarding, and indoor rowing this year. She also took up learning the new sport of footgolf, but she has not competed yet.
Lake County Florida’s Alicia Weber crossed the line first for women and 7th overall in a field of 800 runners at the USA 10k Beach Running Championships on May 10, 2015, in Cocoa Beach, Florida. She is the first runner to win the championship three times. She relished the win as she prepares for her one-of-a-kind youth running camps to be held in Clermont this summer – she has the only top-notch youth running camps in Lake County Florida.
“All levels of youth runners will get top-notch training experiences with gait analysis, preventative injury techniques, stretching/flexibility, sports specific exercises, and nutrition. This camp is beyond just running and it develops an athlete for the long-haul in sports with a winning attitude,” said Alicia Weber, an elite athlete of 23 years with 102 career victories and a slew of world records.
“Alicia is not only a great runner, but also a great motivational trainer for youth to adults to seniors. I encourage parents to have their children attend one of Alicia’s upcoming running camps for the positive motivational physical and mental training Alicia gives. I can attest to this as I have been training under her for three years and compete in Senior Games and I will be 85 this year,” exclaimed Cherie Oney, Top Nationally-ranked sprinter for her age category.
Orlando’s Rickie Alcime won the 10k overall in a new course record time of 36:47.3. He comes to Clermont to train on the hills and he’s looking forward to participating in Sommer Sports Cool Summer Mornings 5k Series this summer.
“Anybody can run. I look out here and it’s Mother’s Day and many kids are out there running with their moms,” said Alcime.
According to race director, Mitch Varnes, participants were 77% female with 1,272 entrants total in the half-marathon and 10k combined from 23 states and four countries.
Alcime got into running 7 years ago with the dream to run a marathon. He completed five marathons and this was his first beach run. His enthusiasm for running has carried him to Fit2Run at the Florida Mall where he is a shoe salesman.
“Everybody has their own goals and that is what I like about running. There are different levels and types of running to choose from like beach running, track running, road running, and trail running. So you can do it for all reasons,” mentioned Alcime.
In beach running, runners run on a slant the whole time in wet or mushy sand, so it has an emphasis on hips and Achilles. The foot has longer ground contact time for each step.
“Two weeks ago was my birthday and my whole family came out to run on the track with me. That meant a lot and now I have them hooked on running,” added Alcime, also a running motivator.
Many studies have shown running elevates mood, improves sleep quality and concentration, builds bone density, defeats age-related mental decline, increases memory, boosts organizational skills and overall brain function, and enhances lung capacity and overall health. Taking up running just for the health benefits alone is a step in the right direction.
“’You Can Do It’ is the motto of the positive message for the physical and mental accomplishments you learn from Alicia Weber,” remarked Oney.
Alicia breezed through the finish line feeling great and very happy that she broke the course record by 39 seconds. Alicia exclaimed, “This is my final competition of 2012 and my 6th victory for the year where I competed in 4 sports. I am ending my season on a high note with great excitement over this consecutive world championship victory! I am very happy and thankful!”
Alicia juggles her sports as many as 10 different sports in one year and her competitive season starts in Feb and normally ends in late October or November each year. Competing in sports is not all Alicia does as she also sets strength, speed, and stamina world records throughout the year. So far this year, Alicia set 166 official world records at Recordsetter. This is the most Alicia EVER set in one year and the year is NOT over yet for her record setting…
Alicia is the World’s Most Prolific Strength and Endurance Record Holder that is also a World Champion Athlete – her post-race interview here:
Alicia has excelled in all forms of running from track to road to off terrain and is a former University of Florida track/cross country letter winner. I asked Alicia how does beach running compare to the other forms of running.
Alicia answered, “Beach running is challenging. You don’t know what you will get – beach wind gusts, thick sand, hard packed sand, and even running on a slant the whole time. You need to prepare for it all. Beach running requires extra sessions of feet and leg strengthening to handle the unbalanced sandy surface that challenges each step or your run.”
I wish I could say I coached these 2 phenomenal senior athletes that I am about to reveal, but my hat goes off to Top Orlando Coach – Alicia Weber. Weber has guided one athlete into lowering her 5k run time by 3 minutes in just 70 days!! In all my years of track coaching, I never got an athlete that much faster it such a short amount of time…and to top it off, this athlete is just coming off of a Leg Rehab! The other senior athlete is smoking the field in Dog Shows with her saluki Angel and they enter the Winner’s Circle of Elite Dog Shows as a team of one of the oldest dog show Owner/Handlers in Nation.
Let’s Hear it from these Top Senior Athletes!
Roxanne, a long time triathlete wished to try to run before her 1 yr anniversary of her leg rehabilitation. She stopped competing after the rehab and the itch to compete is back. She attacked a Florida 5k on December 17, 2011, unsure of the results and if she really could run the entire event.
Roxanne said, “At starting line, I was nervous and not sure what my body could do. I was shocked as I finished and ran the whole time! I pulled through with Alicia’s training in a time of 1:01:54.”
The Determined Roxann set bigger goals. On Feb 25, 2012, Roxann improved her time by nearly 3 minutes in her 1st race now after her 1 yr anniversary from a leg rehabilitation as she ran a Groveland, Fl 5k in 58:55.
Roxann said after that race, “The race seemed shorter and easier. I was a lot more confident and more at ease at the starting line and I remembered all the pointers Alicia gave me.”
Roxann is now looking ahead to her first triathlon season, since having a leg rehab and is excited about the prospects. I ask Alicia, the Top Orlando Coach, what her thoughts are about Roxann’s improvements.
Alicia said, “I support Roxann’s goals and I am positive about her continued success. I see her confidence, strength, and endurance constantly improving and it is a joy to work with her and get her to her goals and beyond!”
Alicia has also guided a top senior owner/handler in Dog Shows to top running performance with her winning show dog! These Dog Shows are about Dashing with the Hounds and being critiqued on everything from gracefulness in your run with your dog and overall appearance. Cherie and her dog Angel, have been in the Winner’s Circle.
Alicia trained Cherie in running to prepare her to win AKC Championship with her Saluki Angel. On December 16, 2011, at the Saluki Specialty Central Florida Kennel Club, Cherie and Angel earned The AKC Championship,which allows them to compete in the Special with other Champion dogs.
After winning this title Cherie exclaimed, “It was a very big goal and roar from the crowd when the judge pointed to Angel and I – It was a joy to know I did this in my Golden Years and with Alicia’s help I can continue showing with the highest level of competition.”
In Feb, 2012, Cherie and Angel competed in their first Special with other Champions where Angel won “Best of Opposite Sex” at Lakeland-Winter Haven Kennel Club. This was Angel’s first time competing with other champions!
Cherie exclaimed after this victory, “For her first time and how young she is – Angel is the youngest champion in that ring and winning. It will be a real challenge now competing in Best of Breed and trying to get into the Hound Group because the groups are so dominated by professional handlers. Owner/handlers like me are in a minority in the groups.”
I ask Alicia how she feels training a champion show dog owner/handler as this is Alicia’s first experience training one. Alicia replied, “Cherie is so fun to work with and she has a great attitude and I knew I had the abilities to get her on her winning way. I am ready for new challenges and I am enjoying this challenge of training an owner/handler.”
And in fact, Alicia is UP for some more challenges as she now prepares these 2 senior athletes to set their first world records! These 2 senior athletes will be participating in Worldwide World Record Day on April 18th, 2012, under Alicia’s tutelage as they attempt tough and inspiring records.
CLERMONT, FL (May 28, 2011)— After a stormy night the second race of 1st ever NTC Cross Country Series took place at 8am in Clermont, Florida at the National Training Center. Alicia Weber is very excited that the NTC started a cross country series in 2011.
Alicia says, “I have been wanting cross country in Clermont. I love running challenging terrain with rolling hills and the NTC has got it! If you want to run a fun and challenging course count this one in!”
Alicia Weber is a letter winning track and cross country runner who ran for the University of Florida. Alicia would rate the NTC cross country course in her list of most challenging courses.
