editor’s letter

LAST MONTH I DID MY sixth Marathon Major, in Tokyo, and became the proud owner of a Six-Star finisher’s medal. Even though the travel banjaxed my body clock for a week afterwards and I had to share a room with RW’s Kerry McCarthy, it was a fantastic experience. After the race we found ourselves in a tiny bar (capacity: around six) in the back streets of Shinjuku, the city’s entertainment district. The other patrons and the owner were locals, so we resorted to a bit of mime – pumping arms and a bit of huffing and puffing – to explain we’d run the marathon that morning. The owner was impressed. ‘Ah – strong!’ she laughed. After that, the sake flowed and we ended up making a promise to pop in…

KATE CARTER The former Guardian journalist and sub-3 marathoner defies the omerta surrounding exercise performance and the menstrual cycle to investigate runners’ experiences and the latest scientific knowledge in Running in Cycles on p50. KRISTEN MASCIA The health and wellness journalist, and regular runner (and not just the sprint intervals chasing her toddler), sampled the cutting edge in sports nutrition for us, as a human guinea pig testing a new ketone supplement drink in Liquid Launch on p56.…

what do you think makes the marathon so special?

‘There is nothing intrinsically special about running 26.2 miles. Rather, the marathon has become special because of what it represents: determination, togetherness and heroism.’– Rick Pearson ‘The emotion on the face of everyone who finishes tells its own story: pain/joy/relief/tears/elation/exhaustion…you don’t get them to the same extent over other distances.’– Kerry McCarthy ‘The marathon reminds me of a mountain you’ve always wanted to climb. “One day,” you think. But the thing is, when you get to the top, you can see other mountains…’– John Carroll stories unfolding on the course, told through the names of lost loved ones on the back of runners’ shirts, and the personal challenges and triumphs etched on faces. Other distances are about running, but the marathon is about so much more.’– Joe Mackie…

snowdonia, wales

THE EXPERIENCE The tricky terrain around the abandoned slate quarry that’s near Llyn Padarn (a glacially formed lake) and the village of Llanberis, at the lake’s southern bank, means you’ll need to watch your step. However, since you’re at the northwestern edge of Snowdonia National Park, in north Wales, you ought to pause every now and then to take in the scenery, at once forbidding and starkly beautiful. AFTER THE RUN Refuel with a golden pint of Seithenyn beer from Cwrw Llyn Brewery and a much-deserved lunch in The Heights, in Llanberis. RUNNER Stuart Hendry PHOTOGRAPHER Stuart Hendry…

take the high road

IF YOU WANT TO GET that runner’s high, go hard, but not too hard. In a study using brain scans, scientists found that during two-hour runs at moderate intensity, subjects’ prefrontal and limbic regions produced endorphins. These hormones – in essence, our bodies’ painkillers – are pumped out in response to physical discomfort, but that doesn’t mean you should run yourself ragged to enjoy the feeling. ‘Most runners I have worked with experience endorphins when they are pushing their bodies, but not usually at max effort,’ says CindraS Kamphoff, director of the Center for Sport and Performance Psychology at Minnesota State University, US. So find that running sweet spot and welcome the bliss. WARM-UPS The TIPS YOU NEED to GET UP to SPEED…
