Runners: Why failing to prepare is preparing to fail
By Heidi Dawson
OK, class, hands up. Who performs a thorough warm-up before going for a run? I would put good money on this number being less than 50 percent, maybe even as low as 25 percent. And, no, a slow first mile doesn't count. There are numerous reasons why runners often don't take the time to warm up properly before they set off.

HealthDay News via WebMD
Running regularly has long been linked to a host of health benefits, including weight control, stress reduction, better blood pressure and cholesterol.

The New York Times
Two rival research groups set out in 1987 to answer a tantalizing question: Could a diet kept meager in calories pay off in longevity? Both teams, one at a National Institute on Aging laboratory in Baltimore and the other at the University of Wisconsin, studied colonies of rhesus monkeys, which can live past age 40, and it was 22 years before the first results were released. The restricted diet, the Wisconsin team reported in 2009, seemed to be working.
