These training tips will help you run faster and more efficiently

Running economy. It sounds important, but what exactly does it mean? Is it finding a pair of high-tech running shoes for $5 at a yard sale?

For serious runners, it remains a favorite in the Nike line.

Typically, the long run is a Saturday or Sunday morning affair, consisting of eight to 16 miles at conversational pace.
