Cardio or Weights book tour: first stop Vancouver


As of September 2017, new Sweat Science columns are being published at Check out my bestselling new book on the science of endurance, ENDURE: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance, published in February 2018 with a foreword by Malcolm Gladwell.

BMO Vancouver marathon posterJust over a month until the release of Cardio or Weights, and plans are starting to come together for some talks and appearances. First order of business: Vancouver people, please spread the word! I’ll be giving a free Science of Running talk on Saturday, April 30 at 12 p.m. at the BMO Vancouver Marathon’s Brita Sports Expo (at Concord Place). The talk will be about 30 minutes, focusing on practical tips for runners based on recent research, followed by plenty of time for Q&As.

While I’m in Vancouver, I’ll also be speaking at the Forerunners clinic on Wednesday evening, and I’ll be hanging around the Canadian Running magazine booth at the marathon expo on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please drop by to say hello when you pick up your number, and feel free to hit me up with any sports science questions (or tell me why I’m wrong or crazy or both!). If all goes well, I’ll also have some advance copies of Cardio or Weights with me (they should be back from the printers any day now).

One other note: I’ve set up a Sweat Science Facebook page (there’s also a link at the top right of this page). For simplicity, I’m going to keep the updated list of upcoming events on that page, under the Events tab. That’s also where I’ll post news about upcoming interviews and other book-related stuff, to avoid cluttering this blog up too much. For instance, I’ve posted a short video Q&A I just did with my publisher. Please check out the Facebook page (and perhaps even click “Like!”) if you have a chance — thanks!
