A belated note that the Jan.-Feb. issue of Canadian Running magazine is on newsstands now. My top picks for this issue: a hilarious back-page essay by Canadian miling legend Harvey Mitro on runners’ obsession with stopping their watches, and an interesting piece by nutrionist Matthew Kadey on which foods it’s worth paying more for, and which you can skimp on. (For example, he argues in favour of dark poultry meat — a policy I’ve long advocated in order to save $1.19 at Swiss Chalet!)
And, of course, there’s my regular Science of Running column, tackling hyponatremia, deep-water pool-running, “dynamic compression” technology, and other topics.
