Fitness matters - Running Injuries
8th Oct 2007
Running injuries are quite common and can be reduced when a proper training and conditioning program is followed.
Several factors may contribute to the risk of injury, such as running surfaces, having the right shoes, and muscle imbalances or weaknesses, but the majority of injuries occur from overtraining.
The American Journal of Sports Medicine reports that newcomers to the sport were significantly more likely to be injured than those who have been training for years.

Racing without a plan can mean a run of bad luck
October 7, 2007
The day after my first marathon, 17 years ago, I went running. My quadriceps were so sore that I had to walk backward down my New York apartment stairs to get outside, but I hardly cared; I was young, euphoric and hooked.
It wasn't just because running kept me feeling thin and fit. I loved the races, the people and the way a run could lift my mood. After a good workout, I was ready to take on the world.

Going the distance
By Meredith Cohn
October 4, 2007
Running a marathon without hurting yourself means monitoring your body's needs before, during and after the race
A dry mouth, creaky knees and muscle soreness that lasts for three days.
These are signs the body wasn't meant to run a marathon, said Dr. John Senatore, chief of podiatry and a sports medicine physician at Union Memorial Hospital.

Life Lessons for a First-Time Triathlete
October 3, 2007
I entered the L.A. Triathlon by accident. , Sort of.
As a recreational athlete who viewed the beginning of last year's triathlon, I quietly vowed to do the race in 2007. , ,It was the first time I could put a personal face on it: I knew one person who was doing it for the first time: an affable, middle-aged Norwegian. , ,Prior to seeing him at the starting line, triathletes seemed to be all-too-serious people with too much Dalmatian energy to expend and nothing better to do with their time than train for some sort of impressive-yet-ultimately-vain event that proved who-knows-what and forced the rest of the city to put up with clogged traffic. , ,But here I was, committing to become one of them. , ,I would have a year to mentally prepare (maybe even train, too).
So why do it? , Here are my best guesses:
