YOUR RACECATION PROCLAMATION
Coach Bette: Time- & Effort-Based Training
In an age when technology tends to dominate our training by offering constant reminders of how far and how fast, sometimes the best we can do for ourselves as athletes is to shed our GPS devices and just run — by feel or effort, rather than pace or distance. Fresh off her successful run at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, Coach Bette explores how time- and effort-based workouts can boost your own training and promote recovery. (7 min read)

WINTER IN MIAMI? COUNT ME IN!
Where no man has gone before
On a foggy morning in Vienna, at a moment when professional running needed a shot of goodwill, the greatest marathoner of all time stepped up to inoculate us all, for at least two hours, against the cynicism of modern athletics. Kenya's Eliud Kipchoge achieved what many experts once considered impossible, breaking the two-hour marathon barrier by running 26.2 miles in one hour, 59 minutes, 40 seconds.

Ed Caesar, author of Two Hours: The Quest to Run the Impossible Marathon, covered Kipchoge's historic performance for The New Yorker and shared his thoughts on the man, the moment, and the future of the marathon. (4 min read)

And speaking of ghosts...
Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn't there!
He wasn't there again today,
Oh how I wish he'd go away!


When I came home last night at three,
The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall,
I couldn't see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don't you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don't slam the door...

Last night I saw upon the stair,
A little man who wasn't there,
He wasn't there again today
Oh, how I wish he'd go away...
