Right now, running is the great passion of my physical life. I have spent a lot of time researching and reading about the sport, from following the discussions on 5k training on letsrun to researching the so called “running cult” divine madness. Here is a selection of interesting resources for the running obsessed, don’t forget to check out the jock roll for even more running resources.
