== Interesting articles ==

RunnersWorld looked at training by time and distance, noting that researchers have found that our minds process distance and time differently.

I found this excellent blog Super Generic Girl by a self-proclaimed run-loving coffee-drinking book-loving globe-trotting list-making cake-baking bush-tramping cat-loving word-hyphenating journalist and writer. Yes, she lives in New Zealand, but it's still a good blog :)

== Recently updated event pages ==

Another big week of updates. I'm liking that I see a lot of events confirming the following year's event within days (or even three or four weeks) of their current one finishing. It's really good for people trying to get a handle on what they would like to enter over the coming year.

As usual, be sure to keep checking the website homepage for recently updated and added events on a regular basis - at the very least once a week; it shows what's been updated such as adding new event dates, online entry, event corrections, etc.
