Written by Richard Ferguson Ph.D on 27 September 2018.

It is often said that running is an individual sport and to a great extent running is a very personal and individual sport. However, even though an individual trains and races, there are usually many others behind the scenes that lend a helping hand. Without others to help support, running performance would certainly be compromised and even enjoyment of the sport of running would be compromised as well. As an old African proverb says, "to go fast, go alone; to go far, go together". Yes, it's true, even though running is individual, there is really a team behind the individual.

KEEPING TRACK

Written by Rod O’Donnell on 26 September 2018.

Let Your Mind Run, A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory, a book written by Deena Kastor and Michelle Hamilton, will entertain, inspire, and educate its readers.
