Friday Finds – 18th October

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.

What a week! There are really only 2 stories to cover right now – Eliud Kipchoge’s sub-2 hour marathon and Brigid Kosgei breaking the women’s marathon record in Chicago the following day. An amazing weekend for marathon running which really showed what can happen when we push the boundaries in training and kit design. So for this week, I’m going to simply gather together some of the writing I’ve been looking at on each of these feats, both of which have attracted praise and criticism alike. Personally, I found it really exciting and felt so emotional when Kipchoge crossed the finish line. I’d love to know your thoughts on these historic events.

And finally, a little 1:59-based humour:

Happy reading,
