* A 23-year-old marathon runner recently collapsed and died at the 16th mile of the Brighton Marathon after consuming ibuprofen and supplements. I had no idea this was a dangerous combination. I’ve absolutely done it. Though, I will say that I quit taking IB in any form when I realized that it was stupid to suppress your body’s natural reaction to stress (to swell)…why interfere with that? The body knows what it’s doing.
* If you’re going to run 13.1 miles, you may as well do it somewhere gorgeous, right? Here are 10 Scenic half marathons for fall.
* New travel trend: Sightrunning tours. Oh….these are awesome! I’ve long said that the best way to really explore a new city is on foot (and you can cover more ground running!).
