Robby Andrews Worst Nightmare p.60 I wish I’d known how much running was going to change my life, and I absolutely would’ve started sooner. I was small for my age and introverted as a teenager; running gave me an outlet and a community to open up to. ALSO: My go-to workout is 10 16x200m (or 30-second) hill sprints with walk/jog down rest. It’s rumored I once covered a 30-second hill in 29 seconds. Hill repeats! Long hills, short hills, fast hills, not-so-fast hills, steep hills, gentle hills, dirt hills, grass hills, road hills—hills are the best bang for your buck, especially if you have some friends to do them with.…

Gene Dykes You’re Never Too Old p.24 In the Cross Country Club Nationals at Lehigh University, I’d run a reasonably strong race and was beginning to listen to demons whispering in my ear that it would be okay to coast. Then an age grouper passed me. I had to fulfill that runner daydream of going head-to-head with an opponent and nipping him at the wire. I picked up the pace, though I was already struggling. Then I picked it up again—and again. I graduated to levels of pain I never knew existed—and I won out. I learned that I could trust myself to finish as strong as necessary. ALSO: For marathon hydration, I’m a fan of single-bottle hip belts. It means carrying a little extra weight, but it’s better to have a…

HOW’S THE OLD saying go? You always remember your first tick? I still remember mine, 10 years ago. The little devil was buried deep into my right shin, halfway between my knee and ankle. I felt him before I saw him, my fingers immediately stopping on some weird new bump, seemingly the size of a cranberry, just above the top of my dress socks. Of course, being inexperienced in such matters, I panicked and yanked him out with my fingers. Then I panicked again because I most definitely messed that up. So I sought advice from my track club teammates at practice that night after work: Would I contract Lyme disease? How would I know? And, um, so how should I have pulled it out? If you spend any time at all…

According to Barbara Lewin, R.D.N., a sports nutritionist who works with Olympians and endurance athletes, vitamin D, along with other nutrients, can reduce your risk of stress fractures by optimizing bone density, fighting inflammation, improving muscle strength, and…
