My Favourite Running Stories this week:
Man loses 60lbs to set mile world record for age. Link.
Nice story about a college runner who decided to go for one more record when he got older. He had to lose over 4 stone to do it.
Kenichi Ito sets world record for 100m on all fours. Link
Slightly insane story about a man who holds records for running on all fours. Under 17 seconds for 100m seems pretty fast to me!
ABC run a comparison on treadmill vs road runs. Link
This is a good look at the differences between treadmill and road runs – with pretty clear outcomes.
