James Henson #RWRunStreak p.39 Truck drivers look at me like I’m crazy. Probably I’m 1 percent of truckers that get out of their truck, get up early in the morning before driving, or get out on a 30-minute break—right now I’m about to put on my running clothes and go running, because it’s a physical, demanding job. ALSO: I like lifting weights. Curling weights and tricep curls. I do sets up of 25 situps, 25 pushups, and bicep curls and tricep curls. Mylen Morales #RWRunStreak p.38 Earlier this year I ran the Strip It to Give It 10K in Charlotte, NC. My best friend and her husband bought me this race for Christmas. You run a normal 10K wearing clothes you want to donate. Every half mile you stop, strip down, and throw in a…

AS COVID-19 UPENDED our world, it also radically altered the world of running, from the racing calendar getting wiped out to the way we get in our daily jog. There are far more serious implications from the virus than its impact on running—amid the mass casualties and economic impact, you may be struggling financially or know those who are, or may have fallen ill yourself or have a loved one who got sick or passed away.

Though carb-loading is a no-brainer, how to optimize carbohydrate consumption is far less straightforward. Scientific understanding has evolved since carb-loading became a thing back in 1967, but it’s hard to keep up-to-date on the latest and best practices. To help you out, here’s a definitive guide for maxing out your carb storage for peak performance. WHY CARBS COUNT You know carbs are important, but here’s a quick refresher on the science of why: The moment you spring into motion,…
