Of Interest to Runners

Run the NYC Marathon
I received the following information in case anyone was planning on running the New York City Marathon but didn’t get into the lottery:
TEAM CONTINUUM“Many people are disappointed at not winning a spot in the lottery to run the ING NYC Marathon. We’ve got 100 guaranteed registrations left and they are going fast! Please help me spread the word about this opportunity to get in on the race and about an important cause.

When a cancer diagnosis results in hardship and uncertainty in someone’s life, Team Continuum steps in to pay the patient’s bills, and to provide immediate and vital non-medical assistance to cancer patients and their families.

Team Continuum, an official charity partner of the NY Road Runners Association, is currently raising money from select participants running in the upcoming ING NYC Marathon in November. So many of us have been touched by this disease and we’d love your help getting the word out about Team Continuum and let your readers know how they can get involved to help. ”

Predicting Running Injury
I saw this article linked on Twitter and thought I’d share it… basically it is something that shows how you could predict running injuries based on your training patterns and times. While I enjoy tracking numbers as much as the next running geek, I’m not sure I want to make little graphs like this, waiting until my predicted injury date! Is that going to create a self-fulfilling prophesy? Read the article and let me know your thoughts.
