I've read a few good articles and studies lately that you should check out.
1. Blaine Moore has an article in the Spring issue of Club Running that gives tips on tapering for back-to-back marathons. He breaks it down to steps based on how many weeks you have between races. I'm saving this one since I do run races a few weeks apart sometimes!
2. A large prospective study found that coffee drinkers have a lower death risk than non-coffee drinkers. In the fine print? They drank 4 to 5 cups per day.
3. Haile Gebrselassie missed the cut for the Ethiopian Olympic team. Reading the Kenyan and Ethiopian selections nearly makes me ill. They have so much talent! I hate to see any of their runners miss the team!
4. A runner was paralyzed during a 5-k mud run and now he's suing the producers for millions of dollars. The catch? He wasn't registered: he got a bib from a friend.
