Robert Winston 65th Air Base Wing commanderCommanders LineBy Lt. Col. Elia Sanjume 335th T raining Squadron commander KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. (AFPN) „ I hate running. Running makes every part of my body hurt: knees, lower back, lungs, even my teeth. Ill admit, I may be getting old and decrepit, but running hurt when I first joined the Air Force, too. So, why do I run? First, the Air Force adopted the 1.5-mile run standard to test and measure our physical fitness. Second, despite the discomfort, a regular running routine has tremendous physical and mental health benefits. Finally, Ive learned how to run in a manner that minimizes pain and maximizes performance. In January 2004, the Air Force implemented a new physical fitness requirement that tested aerobic fitness, muscular strength and body composition. The 1.5-mile run replaced cycle ergometry as the cardiovascular test. That was a change for the better, or was I the only one who wondered how we would pedal into battle? As the Air Force moves to a leaner expeditionary force, our return to running highlights the fitness level required in todays environment of more austere deployments and wartime locations. The run is a standard we must meet to indicate were fit to perform our wartime mission. We have customs, courtesies, and rules on uniforms and physical fitness. I run for the same reason I salute and press my uniform. It is a military standard Ive sworn to uphold. I also run to support my desserteating capability. Ask anyone in the chow hall who has tried to come between me and my three desserts. Running burns more calories per minute than any other form of cardiovascular exercise and is one of the best activities for burning fat. With our busy schedules, running provides the most bang for the buck in terms of time, cardiovascular work, location and equipment. Running requires only good running shoes and 30 minutes in order to maintain cardiovascular fitness. If youre having a bad day, running also relieves stress. Why worry about work when you can concentrate on your legs and lungs burning instead? Running clears the mind and is a great distraction. Then, theres the famous runners highŽ when endorphins are released that mask pain and make running effortless. Personally, I think this is a myth runners feed to nonrunners as an inside joke. Id like to see the MythBustersŽ take on that one. I run as smartly as I can to minimize injuries. Although there are opposing camps on the benefits of stretching, I find it works if I warm up first and then stretch out. I run at a slow pace until my legs feel loose. Once done, I recommendCommentary: Why we run stretching out slowly and holding the stretch while your muscles are warm. As you get into better shape, set time or distance goals and try to run faster or further each session. Start preparing for your fitness test months in advance. If you want to run fast, you need to practice running fast. Dont expect to pass the test after just one week of running. Put the same effort into your fitness test as you do for college or promotion testing. Being fit to fightŽ is now part of the Air Force mindset. While running may not be my favorite activity, I know its beneficial, helping me to be physically fit and able to accomplish the Air Force mission.

NEWS Good to KnowIf you are new to Lajes or have recently had a change in your family, such as a move or a new baby, take the time to make sure your military health benefit information is up to date. Throughout September, the 65th Medical Group will provide information about four simple steps that will ensure easy access to health care. Step 1: Verify Eligibility The Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System, better known as DEERS, is a database used to determine eligibility for a variety of military benefits, including health benefits such asMake your military health benefit work for youTRICARE. Inaccurate or outdated information could cause delays or other problems in accessing health care, so its important to keep this information up to date. As a general rule, check DEERS information annually by visiting the MPF (T112). But there are other times when you should make a special effort to update your information. When to Update DEERS You should update DEERS whenever you have a change in family or career status. Some examples include: Change in address/phone number Birth or adoption of a child Marriage or divorce Death of a family member Change in rank of the sponsor Retirement of the sponsor Activation (for Reserve or Guard) How to Update DEERS The best way is just to log on to DEERS Online at https://www.dmdc.osd.mil/appj/ address/webGuardA uthenticate.jsp. You may also update your information by calling 1-800-538-9552 or 1-866-3632883 (T TY/TDD for the deaf), or by fax at 1-831-655-8317. For other changes, visit the MPF (T112). Keep in mind that you may need to provide documentation such as birth, marriage or death certificates; DD-214s or DD-1172s. Next Week: Step 2:Check Your Coverage (Submitted by the 65th Medical Group)Updating DEERS(Photo by Tech. Sgt. Jeremiah Erickson)There were like, I dont know, 10 or 26 peopleŽ at the Tops in Blue concert Sunday in Praia, said 4-year-old Tatiara Wallace-Adams,daughter of Staff Sgts. Brian and LaTrise Russell. But Taiara wasnt there to count people, she was too busy singing and dancing along with the performers. The actual number of attendees was closer to 350, according to the 65th Service Squadron, and the show offered something for everyone. The Texas songŽ was a favorite of Cassidy Hoff, 7, who liked the song and costumes. She is the daughter of Lt. Col. Robert and Susan Hoff.Tops rocks Praia(Photo by Senior Master Sgt.Roger Merkley)

What do I mean? Due to a m ber of drivers at this point, you ahead to reserve your ride. Here e r: 0434 652 922. This can be e d one day in advance. v ing at Aviano, we took the taxi t to the Pordenone train station to you want a guaranteed seat, ou purchase a ticket on the Euro e fast train with assigned seating. trains are nice too and some r trip they will be the only means d ont sweat it if you purchase a c ket and they give you a local These trains are on a first come a sis, so you might have to be a s ive to ensure you get a seat. e choose to stay at Aviano for the n d if this is the case, then there is l e, a typical blue bus, that runs by r minal at 34 past every hour and lodging office at 58 past every t hat you know what to do once you a no, we want to pass on some m ily shares tips for traveling in Italylessons learned and some tips that helped us maximize our sight seeing to Florence, Pisa and Rome, Italy. First we must say that we thoroughly enjoyed Italy and one week was not enough time to see everything we set out to see, but we gave it our best shot. What amazing architecture and beauty throughout the country. Reserve your hotel early if you are traveling during the peak tourist season July…Aug. The distance between sights appears to be much farther when looking on a map; when it comes down to it, you can walk to most sights from any of the hotels. Whether you like walking or taking a taxi, we recommend taking an open top bus tour. You will see multiple tour companies in Rome and we saw just one in Florence, but for 20 euro (Florence) you get a 24-hour pass (48-hour pass in Rome) to hop on and off at multiple bus stops. We suggest taking the tour first to learn where all the sights are in relation to your map. This will give you an idea what it is you want to do besides hitting all the well known sights. This worked out tremendously well for us in Rome; however, in Florence we took the bus tour the last evening we were there. It was at this time we learned our mistake, or I should say I learned my mistake; my wife actually suggested we take it earlier in the day. Museum tickets range from 2…30 euro, so be prepared to spend a little to see a lot. Here is how our itinerary went and how we could have improved it: Wednesday Head directly to FlorenceŽ was advice we listened to. We recommend this as well, given it was just a 3 and a half hour train ride. We arrived in time to sight see and, as mentioned above; we could have taken the open top bus tour the first evening to set ourselves up for the next day. Save yourself the 2-hour wait in line by reserving your tickets to the Galleria dell Academia online. We had our tickets faxed to the hotel where they were waiting for us. Thursday We walked and visited museums in Florence. No change here. Friday Before heading to Rome, we took a train from Florence to Pisa to see the Leaning T ower known as the Bell T ower.Ž We allowed for 2 hours thinking we could see it and get back to the train in order to arrive in Rome at a decent time. Mistake! We suggest staying another night in Florence and taking a day trip to Pisa from Florence. Our time was rushed and we had to drag our luggage because we checked out of the hotel earlier in the day to head to Rome. You need at least a day in Pisa to take it all in. Saturday … Rome, for 20 euro you can get a 48-hour pass on the open top tour bus „ well worth the extra 5 euro. We started the tour near the Vatican City getting on and off at many different stops to sight see. For entrance into the Vatican City, women need to have shirts with sleeves or wear a shawl. Sunday … More sight seeing in Rome. Monday … More sight seeing in Rome before catching our train at 1 p.m. back to Aviano. Our plan was to take a day trip to Venice on Tuesday, but to be honest we were exhausted and decided to rest instead. Without a baby, it might have been doable. We should have taken a day trip to Pisa as discussed earlier, then stayed in Rome Monday night and caught an early train back to Aviano on Tuesday morning which would have gotten us to Aviano early in the afternoon with plenty of time to rest and shop. Tuesday … Rested at Aviano. Miscellaneous information: Taxi to Pordenone Train Station from Aviano:15 euro Train ticket from Pordenone to Florence: 70 euro Train tickets from Florence to Pisa and then to Rome: 100 euro Train tickets from Rome to Pordenone: 100 euro Water is expensive from the street vendors so find a local market; there is one very close to the Rome train station. Water from a vendor was 2 euro and market water was .33 euro. Pack light and take a soft suitcase to pack any souvenirs for the trip back. We hope this helps those who are contemplating taking a trip to Italy and we do not mind answering questions if anyone needs additional information. There is a space-A flight to Aviano Air Base, Italy on Tuesday nights. It returns to Lajes on Wednesdays.

Joshua Richards 65th ABW Safety Office I dont need a bicycle helmet! Besides I have been riding for years.Ž We all know the excuses and odds are we have used something along these lines once or twice ourselves. I know that helmets might not look cool and you might even feel like a geek, but consider some of the facts: According to the Snell Memorial Foundation, a world leader in research, education, testing and development of helmet safety standards, a helmet can reduce the risk of a head injury by 85 percent. Further, people hospitalized for head injuries sustained from a bicycle crash are 20 times more likely to die as those without. Not enough? Just under 300,000 people are treated for bicycle related injuries each year, according to the Snell Foundation. Still not enough? Terceira does not have a head trauma unit and people have to be medivaced out, reducing chances of survival. For anyone still not convinced that wearing a helmet is a good idea, lets pull out the last stop. AFI 91-207 states : All personnel, including dependents, contractor and retirees who ride bicycles on an installation must wear an approved bicycle helmet from the American National Standards Institute, Snell Memorial Foundation or other approved helmet foundation. Armed with the facts, we should each be able give up our excuses and admit that a bike helmet can not only keep us out of trouble, but may very well save our lives.Bicycle Safety Tips:Wear a helmet „ no exceptions. Wear sturdy athletic shoes with plenty of traction „ no open-toed shoe. Stop at all intersections and yield to traffic that has the right-of-way. Look left, right and left again before crossing any street. Learn and use proper hand signals. Wear reflective material in hours of poor visibility and darkness. Use a headlight on your bike to increase visibility.Helmet Safety Tips:The helmet should sit level and cover your forehead. Buy the smallest size that fits comfortably. The helmet should NOT move around when you shake your head. The helmet is snug, but not tight. Use extra pads (usually provided with the helmet) to fine-tune the fit. When buckled, you should be able to fit only one finger between the strap and your closed jaw. The straps should be adjusted to meet just below your ears. You should never be able to pull the helmet off without unbuckling the strap. Replace your helmet every five years or if it has been damaged.You’re not as hard headed as everyone says
