The amazing thing about the Western States 100 Mile Endurance run is not that anyone would run it in the first place, but that anyone would go back to do it again after running it once. Welcome to 100 miles of hell, otherwise known as Western States.
Test Your Competitive Nature
Take this test to determine just how competitive a runner you really are.
Keep the Fire Burning: How Competitive Can You Get?
Here's the most sure-fire way to become the best runner you can possibly be: get competitive. Really competitive. Down and dirty, nasty, refuse-to-lose competitive. It's not the healthiest way to approach running, but it sure does work, for a while anyway.
Match (Races) Made in Heaven: Sprinters Bailey & Johnson, Distance Runners Gebrselaisse & Morceli, Go One on One
Well, this will be something of a first for the sport of track and field: a day of one on one match races, with millions of dollars in prize money at stake. Taking a cue from golf and tennis which have staged big money exhibitions for years, all the glitz and hoopla will be centered in Toronto, Canada on Saturday June 1, where Olympic champions Donovan Bailey (100 meters) and Michael Johnson (200 meters) split the difference and square off at previously unheard of distance of 150 meters.
The Mary Slaney Case: Here We Go Again
Gee, it's been a tough couple of weeks for running. Just when we were recovering from the Murphy's, it seems Mary Slaney is undergoing a USATF drug investigation, stemming from last year's Olympic Trials. This one is going to be really tough for fans of the sport to handle. Slaney has been a big part of the running landscape for the better part of three decades. She has grown up along with the sport, right through the running boom and beyond. She has won just about everything there is to be won, except an Olympic medal. Her pursuit of that goal has been an ongoing soap opera, ever since she was inadvertently tripped in the 3000 meter Olympic final in 1984 by a then barefoot teenager named Zola Budd.
