You don’t have to be a genius to know running is great and represents a lot of energy.

The genius Albert Einstein produced an equation about energy: E=mc2 (Energy equals mass and the speed of light multiplied by itself.)

Einstein, a theoretical physicist, never ran in our Grand Prix series, which started 40 years ago, but running sure helps anyone understand the reality of pure energy.

You’ll be light years ahead on understanding energy when you participate in Running Journal Grand Prix races. You can even reflect on Einstein’s theory while you experience the energy needed to get to the finish line.

Winning is Personal

By Richard Ferguson
Running is the most primeval of all physical activities. Pre-historic man ran simply to survive through hunting and gathering, as well as fleeing from predators. For early man, success through running simply meant living to see the sun rise on another day.

Today, success is certainly defined in a much different way. Unfortunately, in the running world success is too often associated with winning, and to most laymen, winning means finishing first. But do you really have to win or finish first to be a successful runner? I would say most certainly not.

Success is far too often associated with some particular outcome, such as a championship, trophy or medal. For others success may mean having great wealth, fame or a position of power.
