News of the Week

Last Sunday morning in Valencia, Spain, Kenyan runner Kibiwott Kandie (watch the video below) smashed the half-marathon world record, becoming the first person to break 58 minutes. Kandie ran 57:32, breaking Geoffrey Kamworor’s previous record, which he set in 2019, by 29 seconds.

Something that caught my eye was his running shoes. Running in Adidas instead of the famous Nike’s Alphafly. That just continues to prove our theory that shoes are more a gimmick than a real strategy to improve our times.

Running Book of the Month

Epic Runs of the World – by Lonely Planet

I just got this book as a Christmas present and it is amazing. With all the pandemic and canceled races, it has been a great source of motivation to look into future amazing runs.

Because it is not only about races, there are epic runs you can do on your own following the book as a guide. How about a climb into the foothills of Nepal, an ultra-trail in Australia, or an epic Park Run in Portland?

Get the Hardcover here, it’s a fantastic coffee table book.

Happy running and see you next WEEK
