In the days of the First Running Boom, newbies were eager to learn the Rules of the Road when it came to running and especially marathoning. Richard Benyo is the editor of Marathon & Beyond magazine and is the author of Timeless Running Wisdom. He is chairman of the board of the Napa Valley Marathon and along with his running partner, Tom Crawford, was the first runner to run from Badwater in Death Valley (lowest point in the Western Hemisphere and hottest place on Earth) to the peak of Mt...
One of the easiest ways to release the athletic beast inside and to keep it loose is to set running goals, both short term and long term. An aspect to consider with running, at least if you wish to race, is competition—against other runners and against yourself. Like running on a game reserve in Kenya, or running three races in three days in Bermuda, or running over a mountain range over rough tracks and through rivers in New Zealand.
To keep running from becoming boring, some people schedule at least one annual special run, often on a birthday. I’m personally not fond of birthday bashes in which runners go to a track for the day and run the number of miles that correspond to their age, because running around a track doesn’t fit my concept of an adventure run. My favorite adventure runner is Dean Karnazes, the author of Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner and an outstanding endurance runner.

Next the authors replaced the PSPP ...
Former Runner’s World executive editor Rich Benyo argues that runner’s high can be achieved as early as two months into a running program. Among the many topics addressed in the forthcoming Timeless Running Wisdom (Human Kinetics, December 2010), Benyo discusses how, while not rare, runner’s high (or “sweet running”) must still be actively sought, or at least be prepared for actively on a physical level. Benyo also believes that many runners experience sweet running on their own.
For the second time since he signed an endorsement deal with luxury watchmaker Richard Mille in 2010, Nadal and his timepiece have parted company. Does Rafa Nadal have trouble keeping time? Nadal crossed the $50 million in career prize money threshold following his French Open title, and earns even more from sponsors including Kia Motors, Bacardi, Nike, and Babolat, so he can obviously afford to replace the watch if he had to.
