Marathon training made me fast(er)
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      7 comments

It's funny how I was always told, and continue to tell other new runners, that you should absolutely not, under any circumstances, think about trying to get faster when you're learning how to run. Speed is entirely unimportant at that point, an... Read more
