So when a runner isn't running...

What does he post about? Hm...

Well, random stuff about running from all over the web. How 'bout that?

  • An article from Thursday's New York Times quotes a study from Germany showing that "runners' high" may not be in our heads, after all. How many of us have had a runners' high before...raise your hands...
  • Kerrin Hardy's Running Blog Carnival is a darned nice web site. She scours the web for articles, blog posts, and other interesting bits of stuff and puts them all together in a nice digest. I came to know about this site after she linked to my review of the movie "Spirit Of The Marathon."
  • Speaking of aggregation sites, the Complete Running Network is also a great place to go. You can find fellow runner/bloggers, exchange links, comment on each others' blogs, and help build up the community.
  • I turn to quotes from famous people for inspiration--not only in running, but in my faith, in business, and life in general. There are more "running quotes" pages on Google than you can shake a stick at, but I thought this one was pretty good.
  • I've mentioned the legendary Hal Higdon many times before, but his name (and his site) bear repeating. His site doesn't change a lot, but it's an absolute treasure trove of information and inspiration on running. If you haven't read his book Marathon: The Ultimate Training Guide, do so. Even if you've trained for or run a marathon before, you'll pick up something you missed the last time.

That's enough goodness from the web for now...hope you enjoy the links and the stories.

Run well, my friends!
