A sub-2 hour marathon in 2017?
by on Thursday, December 29, 2016

A bit of a different post this month. Earlier this month, Nike announced that they will be fielding an attempt to break 2 hours in the marathon in the spring of 2017. Shortly later, Adidas announced that they had a similar initiative in the works. Both have apparently been working on this for years.

Olympic Track and Field is here!
by on Thursday, August 11, 2016

It's what we've all been waiting for. Once every four years, our sport gets center stage of the sporting world. Tomorrow, track and field's time starts.

A few things to keep an eye on with a couple of notes. First, no field events. I'll be honest, I don't know enough about them. Second, this is a bit American heavy and I'll skim over a few events that I don't know a lot about.

Luke Puskedra's baby has cancer
by on Friday, February 26, 2016

On February 13th, I thought the worst news Luke Puskedra could face was that he finished 4th at the Olympic Trials.

It turns out he faced much worse news not long after when he found out his daughter Penelope has Neuroblastoma. The word right now is that her prognosis is good but she does face a long and expensive recovery.

If you would like to help the Puskedra family financially, a friend of the family set up a GoFundMe page. ...

The US Olympic Trials for the marathon is this Saturday in Los Angeles. The races will be broadcast live starting at 1pm Eastern on NBC or you can check NBC Live Extra for online viewing.

Below is a bit about some of the favorites in each race, as well as a list of others who I think will run well and be in position if some of the favorites don't come through.

The Nike Oregon Project/Alberto Salazar story

Alberto Salazar

By now, I'm sure anyone reading this post knows about the story. At first, I didn't want to write about it. As the story goes on, though, I think it's important enough to the sport that I should write about it. Not because I'll write a better piece than the many great authors who have written on this but because I want to offer a place for you to find some of the best links and expand with my thought ...

Another honor for Coach Conway

Coach Conway - inspiration, role model, mentor - working the finish line, one of the many jobs a high school coach fills

A personal post this week. As anyone who knows me as a runner knows, my middle school track and high school cross country coach has been a huge influence on my life. To be honest, he has been inside and outside of running.

To explain what Coach Conway has meant to me would take far more words ...

This week's post is all about pain...???
by on Monday, May 11, 2015

I hope nobody gets the wrong impression. I really don't think running should be such a painful thing. That said, I have two pain related topics for today. Gender specific injury prevention and our memories of painful events.

Gender specific injury prevention

This seems like an interesting topic to me. Let's be honest. As much as I love the sport of running because it's so open to all people, all ages, all genders, men and women are different even when it comes to running. There are ...

Larry Rawson's weight comments at the Boston Marathon
by on Thursday, April 30, 2015

Image
Lightweight? Yes. Also and more important: powerful, extremely fit, amazing stamina.

Did Larry Rawson do a disservice to young and likely not so young runners across America? In my opinion, yes.

I didn't see the coverage live. I saw a lot about the topic as it was happening via Twitter, though, and it reminded me of previous races I did see live where Rawson constantly focused on the weight of the elite fema ...

Finally, The New York Times is catching up

Reported on this shoe back in 2013

Back in 2013, I posted twice about the pendulum swinging from "minimal" shoes to "maximal" shoes.
