If you are losing faith in humanity, go watch a marathon.

Great piece in WaPo by Ezra Klein.  Encouraging us to keep in mind the resilience and hopefulness emanated by Switzer (see my earlier post) and others, fast and slow, old and young, and learn from the coming together of humanity that happens at every race.  Thanks to @jillee1022 for sharing.

I’ve been saying it for years.  Music is for more than just killing boredom on a long run.  Check out this NY Times piece explaining research into human physiology when it comes to preferred walking and running cadences.  Bottom line: if you’re looking to hit or work toward a specific cadence, the best way to do it is to put on those headphones and blast something in the right BPM range.
