Remember you heard it here first: RUNNING CAUSES CANCER. You don’t believe me? I can prove it. Just ask my doctor. He recently cut a basal cell carcinoma off my head, and it wasn’t the first one -- there was the one on my arm, the one on my back, the one on my leg. How does that connect to running causing it? Probably indirectly, but really it can be connected due to exposure to sunlight.

By Richard Ferguson PhD/Running Journal/June 2009

I often hear runners talking about mental toughness and the need to become more mentally tough. Coaches often stress mental toughness and how their athletes need to become more mentally tough. However, very few people can actually define what mental toughness is and very few coaches can tell their athletes just how they can improve their mental toughness.

By Pete Rea/ZAP Fitness/Running Journal/April 2009

The late Oscar Wilde once said that consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative. Wilde was not a runner. Despite participating in a sport where tinkering, tweaking, and schedule flexibility can be key to health and progression, the one quality virtually all top endurance athletes share is consistency. Month after month of healthy consistent training trumps short term large jumps in volume or intensity nine times out of 10.
