Does Music Help You Run Faster?

One thing that’s nearly ubiquitous among recreational runners at health clubs and on the roads is an iPod or mp3 player strapped to their arm. Most of these folks probably just use them as a distraction, especially if they don’t particularly enjoy running. But even at high-level competitions, you’ll often see top athletes listening to […]

Winning the War Against Snack Attacks

Day after day, I hear runners complain about their (seemingly) uncontrollable snacking habits. Some believe they are hopelessly, and helplessly, addicted to chocolate. Others believe eating between meals is sinful and fattening; snacking is just plain wrong. Some equate snacking to doing drugs. They bemoan they are addicted to sugar and can’t eat just one cookie. Snacking is all or nothing.

Why Don’t Runners’ Knees Fail More Often?

First, the bad news. A sophisticated new model shows that if you start running at age 23 and put in less than two miles a day, there’s a 98 percent chance that your knees will fail by the age of 55. Now, the good news: that doesn’t actually happen in real life. In fact, as I and many others have repeatedly pointed out, the evidence suggests that running is neutral at worst, and possibly even helpful, for the long-term health of your knees. So the real question—and it’s an interesting...
