Friday Finds is a regular feature in which I collate and share interesting articles and posts on running/health/fitness which I’ve read recently. Some might be inspiring, some might be scientific, some might provoke debate. All are things I’ve found in some way thought-provoking.
A very happy Friday! All being well, when this post goes live I should be on my way to Disneyland Paris for my magical running adventure, therefore this week I’ve written my post in advance.
To be honest, all of my usual sources are deservedly full of news of the Berlin marathon and Eliud Kipchoge’s amazing run for a new world record, therefore I’ve decided to make that the focus of this week’s post. So in a slight change to my normal format, here’s a roundup of some of the articles I’ve been reading since last weekend:
- Sean Ingle’s report in The Guardian and his thoughts on the possibility of a sub-2 hour marathon
- A great write up from Let’s Run and an interview with his “drinks guy”
- Alex Hutchinson for Outside
- Canadian Running on the shoes worn by Kipchoge
- A more lighthearted look at Kipchoge’s post-race celebration
- Nike’s ad to mark the occasion
And to finish, a picture that has been fairly prominent on social media this week. How long could you keep up with Kipchoge?
