Glad to be back posting on the site. Looking forward to posting regularly this last month of 2013. Thanks to Skyler Cummins for putting together this week’s Sunday Morning Reads.
The first is from LetsRun.com. I think LetsRun (and specifically the BroJos) has an incredible amount of good information on the sport, and unfortunately a lot of people are deterred from accessing it by the (also quite incredible amount of) crap that gets posted on the message boards. I’ve done some sifting for the readers, and this article, written by Weldon Johnson a number of years back, is a real gem:
The second is a short but cool profile of a middle schooler from San Jose who just ran a pretty fast 100 miler. It’s interesting (if somewhat tangential) in the context of the fairly prevalent idea that many Kenyans start running long distances at a young age:
The third article is a bit of a stretch to relate directly to running, but it’s a very interesting read for all the scientist-runners out there:
The last article is just for fun: http://deadspin.com/escaped-dog-runs-half-marathon-wins-medal-gets-neuter-1443527598/@barryap
