Live marathon chat, plus a couple of Science of Running talks (Toronto)


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.

A quick heads-up about a couple of upcoming events related to next weekend’s Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon:

  • Canadian Running magazine is hosting a live chat on Thursday, October 6 (i.e. tomorrow) from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Some of the top contenders like Reid Coolsaet and Brandon Laan will be answering questions, as will race director Alan Brookes and I. So if you’ve got questions about the course, training, tactics, or the impending battle for Olympic standards (or anything else, for that matter), join us at this link.
  • I’ll be giving a couple of Science of Running talks at the STWM race expo: Friday, October 14 from 5:00 to 5:20 p.m., and Saturday, October 15 from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. If you’re racing one of the STWM races, please come and check out one of the talks, or else drop by the Canadian Running magazine booth (where I’ll be hanging out for the rest of the day Friday and Saturday). Needless to say, I’ll have copies of Cardio or Weights available to sign!
