Eat Vegan front cover copy3X41.jpgIf you believe in eating healthy foods – and who doesn’t? – here’s an ideal book by Florida runner Ellen Jaffe Jones that provides answers at a very agreeable cost, both for the food ($4 a day) and the book ($14.95).

Jones, an award winning former television reporter, wrote the book after several members of her family suffered serious illnesses she wanted to avoid. She has spent years learning good nutrition and has put her knowledge to use by teaching cooking classes. She’s also an active runner and writes a column for Running Journal about nutrition and running.

By Lena Hollmann

Hollman,_Lena.jpg__.jpgFor the first time in three decades, I have reached a major milestone birthday without having a nagging injury stopping me in my tracks. Instead, I was able to run a sub two-hour half-marathon just days after changing age groups, finishing in 1:57:58. I am still recuperating as of this writing, but healthy (knock on wood!), and looking forward to more races to come.

A study at the Stanford University School of Medicine that tracked the lives of more than 900 people over more than 20 years concluded that regular running or other consistent exercise for those in middle and late life may result in a longer, healthier life.

The study, led by Dr. Elizabeth Chakravarty, studied more than 500 people who ran on a regular basis against a control group of more than 400 who did not run.

Our daily ritual is far more than sport
By Pete Rea/ZAP Fitness
Rea,_Peter.jpg_.jpgIn 20 years of coaching I have seen athletes drawn to our sport for a myriad of reasons. For some it is the last best option after numerous “other sport” failures. For others, particularly the introverts, it is the allure of the individual (as opposed to team) sport, with the open road being a beacon of solace. And for many the convenience of a sport that can be executed anywhere, anytime is enormously attractive in our go-go-go society. For many, however, running is more than simply exercise or competition or even ritual, but a friend. “Running is the least expensive shrink I know,” said 1960 Olympic 5,000m Champion Murray Halberg.
