Spread the love of our sport: Get someone running.
This month, I would like to humbly but enthusiastically suggest that you get someone running. Could be anyone. Do it for his or her sake but also for your own. It's a cool feeling to get newbies started, support them along the way, answer all their wide-eyed questions, run with them when possible, and marvel down the road at how much better their health, fitness, and lives are because of it.

Treat yourself, it's Friday!
On Friday morning, I meet five runners for a four-mile spin through Savannah, Georgia. Lydia DePue leads the running program at the local Fleet Feet Sports shop, which celebrates Fridays with a costume run; hence, her bunny ears. She mapped today's course, which starts and ends at Clary's Cafe. We have two items on our agenda: (1) an easy run amid the Southern scenery and (2) a righteous order of pancakes afterward.

Pop quiz: How many calories do you have to burn to lose a pound?
You’ve probably heard the number-one “rule” of weight loss: It takes a 3,500-calorie deficit between calories consumed and calories burned to produce a one-pound drop in body weight. This old chestnut is more than 50 years old. Problem is, it’s wrong.Physiologists, nutritionists, and unsuccessful dieters have long regarded the 3,500-calorie-rule with suspicion. But few understood why, and even fewer had a better rule to propose.

If you plan on boarding a plane (or going on a long car ride) postrace, you'll want to read this.
Dan asks: In September, I'm running my first marathon in New York. The very next day, I'm flying to Mexico. My wife seems to think flying after the race may be a problem. Any advice?

He set his alarm for p.m. instead of a.m. Don't you hate when that happens?
Andy Wacker first realized something was wrong when he saw sunlight peeking through his bedroom window in Boulder, Colorado. He checked his clock. It read 5:35 a.m. Wacker, 26, had intended to get up at 3:50 that morning to be at the Barr Mountain Trail Race, a 12.6-mile run in Manitou Springs, Colorado, 100 miles away, in time for the race’s 7 a.m. start.Slight problem, though. He had set his alarm on his iPhone for p.m. instead of a.m.

Have any requests?
Thad Beaty, 40, has completed two Ironman triathlons and one marathon, but he’s not quite sure how to approach his next endurance challenge. On October 11, a guitarist for the Grammy-winning country band Sugarland, will run the Denver Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon to raise money for charity, and he will stop and play a song with each of the bands along the route.

How to keep your skin happy and healthy.
Being outdoors is by far one of the best parts of running, but it doesn’t come without risk, especially when it comes to skin health. Taking a few simple steps to care for your skin is always important, but especially so during the long days of summer.

When you let go of running by numbers and begin to follow your body, you are better positioned to perform your best.
One of the most effective coaching tools I’ve used is teaching athletes how to tune into their bodies and run by effort instead of pace. I began emphasizing this more when GPS gadgets became mainstream and runners were looking to the devices rather than their bodies for feedback. By focusing on your body’s cues you are instantly connected to your greatest asset: your inner GPS.

A running doc discusses birth control’s impact on performance.
If you take an oral contraceptive, you might have wondered if that little pill could influence your running. Recently, the topic surfaced in the running news when Olympic hopeful Stephanie Bruce announced a surprise pregnancy, and told Runner's World that she's never been on birth control because "it has a lot of extra effects on running."

Pro tip: Use the first 26.2 as a (long) training run.
Elsie asks: I'm training for my first marathon, which is at the end of November. My plan is to do this marathon, and then six weeks later, I want to run another one with some friends. Is this crazy? Is it possible to run two marathons so close together?

Rev up your warmup to prep your body for hard efforts.
You know the feeling. It's the first repeat of an interval workout, you're breathing like a steam engine, and your legs feel like they're caught in quicksand. But you also know the second interval will feel a little better, and by the third, you will have settled into a rhythm. It's called the priming effect—as your body adapts to the physiological demands of running hard, the effort feels easier. Learn to prime your body during your warmup inste...
