Today would have been the #tokyo2020 marathon, and even though I fully support postponement, it’s still pretty disappointing to think about how different this year has gone compared to my expectations on February… https://instagram.com/p/CDpBiLnnhva/?igshid=157yas56zwnq6

“It doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.” —Fred Lebow, Founder, #NYCMarathon


The rumors are true. The 2020 London Marathon WILL go forward on October 4 — but as an elite-only race in St. James’s Park. That means Kipchoge vs. Bekele IS ON. For the first time in history, two 2:01 marathoners will meet in the same race. https://letsrun.com/forum/flat_read.php?thread=10145531

Although it’s a sad day for the @LondonMarathon and all of the runners who normally run the the marathon together with me. I’m happy to be coming back to London for #The40thRace. You may not be running with me or cheering me on from the streets, but in our minds we run together.


As a Coach, one of the most satisfying things is when you hear an athlete repeat your words to the next generation of athletes. Thank you @mikegmorgan#MyNewLife

Most injuries are preventable through very gradual exposure to new stress loads. Take your time, don’t rush into any new phase of training and your body will make the necessary adaptations to handle high loads eventually.

The last time cross country was in the Olympics was 1924 — also in Paris. The temperature reached over 100F and 23 of the 38 starters dropped out of the race, causing Red Cross volunteers to search for them on the course.

World Athletics say they are looking to have a mixed-relay cross country event at the Paris 2024 Olympics, with two men and two women each running 2 1/2km twice…

Question for Running Media: Have we come across any reported cases of Covid caught WHILE RUNNING? Not socializing before or after. I think all runners would love to know if there is a documented case. Thank you! @ChrisChavez@erinstrout
