This recovery plan is absolutely fool-proof.
You’ve pounded the protein shake, shivered in the ice bath,and mastered the art of self-massage. Because you should do everything you can to speed your recovery from today’s run, right? Maybe not. How much recovery work you do depends on how close race day is. When it comes to their postrun routine, some elite runners actually employ fewer recovery aids during specific periods in order to maximize their training gains. Here’s how this plays out d...

This is so impressive!
At Saturday’s Mount Washington Road Race, 95-year-old George Etzweiler became the oldest person to complete the 7.6-mile course when he crossed the finish line in 3:28:41. The race’s organizers bill the event as having only a single hill, but it’s a tough one. The course has an elevation gain of 4,727 feet and has an average grade of 12 percent.

Great! I am convinced that you'll honor and you'll overcome your project to run up to 100 years!
God bless you

The 26.2-mile distance wasn't enough to settle the friendly running score.
Three-hundredths of a second is the approximate time a hummingbird takes to flap its wings once. It’s also the official chip-time separation between Ray Moorehead, 52, and Scott Clark, 51, the top two finishers at the Johnny Miles Marathon in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, Canada held Sunday.

The longest time span between first and last sub-3:00 marathon currently stands at 39 years, 188 days.
At this weekend’s Grandma’s Marathon, veteran marathoners Bob Hensley and Dennis Kurtis will take a crack at a marathon record owned by Dennis’ older brother, Doug Kurtis. Doug may be best known for his 200 lifetime marathon completions in under three hours.  But he also holds the record for the longest time span between first and last sub-3s, which currently stands at 39 years, 188 days.

Sure, it's too hot, but look on the bright side.
After the winter many of us suffered through, now you're complaining about the heat? Yes, it slows your pace--by 1.5 to 3 percent for every 10-degree jump above 55°F, in fact. And it can sap your enthusiasm. But by training through scorching temperatures, runners reap a performance boost come autumn.

Ditch the frozen peas and ACE bandages.
110% Overdrive Compression + Ice Kit ($100)Run in the compression socks, then slip on the over-sleeve—and tuck in the reusable ice packs—to target foot and lower-leg pain. 110% Play Harder Arctic Ease Wrap ($16)Providing a light squeeze and a cool but not ice-cold sensation, this cotton wrap is all about convenience. It doesn't require any refrigeration and the material clings to itself, eliminating the need for clips or tape to keep it in place...

#1. Get strong and flexible.
Belinda asks: I have been a runner for the past few years. A few weeks ago, my back and hip started to give me pain, so I went to my chiropractor and got an MRI. I have two confirmed herniated discs. I took a few weeks off of running, but I would like to start running again soon—I have a 10K race in October, and I would love to PR. How does one run and train with herniated discs?

"I'm thriving on being more of an underdog... That's a fun challenge."
In a one-year span beginning in April 2014, Olympic 10,000-meter bronze medalist Shalane Flanagan put in months of 100-mile weeks and competed successfully at three high-level marathons. Running Boston twice, and Berlin in between last September, she lowered her personal best to 2:21:14, making her the second fastest American ever behind Deena Kastor.

Her love of the track outran her desire to "make it big" as a model.
In high school, Colleen Quigley dreamed of moving to New York City upon graduation so she could try to “make it big” as a model.  As an eighth-grader, Quigley attended a local casting call for a Macy’s prom dress fashion show after her dance teacher urged her to try out. Despite auditioning in flip-flops, a T-shirt, and not a trace of makeup—“I was vastly out of my league,” she said—Quigley was one of 12 girls chosen from the group of more than 1...

All the marathon runner, Army Reservist, and full-time graduate student knew when she first met Filpo in early January was the guy needed a kidney. So she decided she’d see if she was a match. 
The day his kidneys failed, he lay in bed struggling to breathe and unable to move as his oxygen-deprived organs began shutting down.  Sgt. Maj. Miguel Filpo could hear the phone ringing—his ex-wife checking in on him—but he couldn’t answer it. All he could do was lie there and think: I’ve been blown up, I’ve been shot, I jump out of an airplane 10 times every single weekend, and I’m going to die staring at this ceiling fan.

As temperatures rise, running doesn't need to be a total suffer-fest.
However many bad-weather-will-make-you-tougher quotes we collect, there’s still one aspect of weather that most of us do our best to dodge: heat. Bolstered perhaps by health warnings every time the mercury climbs into the red zone, many of us do everything we can to avoid it: running at dawn or in the late evening or even seeking shelter on air-conditioned treadmills. It is, however, possible to run in heat.
