Running Links and Highlights

If you are in the path of Juno, hoping you and your loved ones are staying safe and warm! We woke up this morning to 7+ inches of snow and howling winds outside – but not nearly as bad as they were predicting!

I read so many great running-related stories and posts throughout the week – and wanted to do a roundup of some of the highlights I found!

If there is one that I missed or one that really stood out to you, let me know in the comments or with an email (nycrunningmama@gmail.com) and I’ll include it in next week’s roundup!

Fallen Runner Saved Near Finish Line: Amazing story of a runner who collapsed (and was clinically dead) at the finish line of the Naples Half Marathon before onlookers and medical personnel saved his life!

You Know You Are Screwed At The Start Line When...: I can relate to many of these! Definitely worth a read if you need a good chuckle!

Study: Women Are Better At Marathon Pacing Than MenAccording to a recent study, women are better than men at pacing themselves during marathons…no definitive reason why but the article has a couple of possibilities.

Running 101: How Often Should You Run?There’s no definite answer given in this article, but the author talks about the minimum (to see some sort of improvement – either in speed or endurance), running twice/day and cross training.

How I Make Organic Groceries More Affordable:  Loved this helpful post from Laura on ways to reduce the cost of organic groceries since my family and I are trying to do more organic/grass-fed products within our home.

Saucony Contest Sponsored by Another Mother RunnerOne lucky mom will get the opportunity to be sponsored by Saucony while also documenting her running journey on the AMR website and through the hashtag #AMRinSaucony. (Contest ends 1/29)

Do Epsom Salt Baths Work? I began taking epsom salt baths last fall – and loved them! Amanda explains that there is no actual science to back up the benefits of epsom baths – but it’s still a great way to warm up and relax post-long run or workout!

Registration/Lottery is Still Open for the NYC MarathonCloses 2/15 so make sure you enter/register if you are interested!

How Cold Is Too Cold To Run? Research suggests that as long as it’s warmer than -18 degrees, it’s not too cold to work out! I don’t know if I could run in temps much colder than 0 (the coldest, so far, I’ve run in is 13!). What is the coldest temperature you’ve run in?

This is the 2nd time I’ve shared this quote on Instagram. It’s hands down one of my favorite quotes of all time:

Speedwork

Any good running-related reads that I can include for next week?

    1. Oh, I’m coming back to check out some of these links! The coldest I’ve ever run was in winter in VT and I think it was about -10 degrees. It actually wasn’t as horrific as I was expecting – I think cold is cold and so long as you’re layered appropriately, your body isn’t going to notice the difference between +15 or -15. I saw that quote graphic you shared and I love it too!!
