Worth Reading

* Runner’s World tells the story of Bill Iffrig, the guy who we all watched knocked to the ground repeatedly in that Boston Marathon bombing footage that kept looping for days (then he ended up bottom-down in that Sports Illustrated cover), and what a story it is.  (Yes, I’m a month behind in reading). If you haven’t read this, you should — he’s a fascinating guy. And, I had the same reaction the reporter did when I saw him — that 78-year-old man just ran a little over 4-hour marathon!

* Can’t stand energy gels? Here are 12 tasty alternatives.

* 30 Reasons We Appreciate Running.

* The New York Times did a profile of the other most recognizable victim from the Boston Marathon bombing— Jeff Baumann, who lost both of his legs.
