I have been a fan of Aftershokz headphones for running since I first tried them out about a year ago. I had touted the bone-conduction style for its safety — they sit outside the ears, allowing the user to hear vehicle traffic, other people, animals and whatever else i...

I’ve been a big fan of chia seeds for a couple of years now. They regularly occupy a prominent spot in my oatmeal or yogurt that I have for breakfast about four times a week.

Chia seeds are packed with omega-3s, protein, calcium and fiber. When I first discovered Health...

This year I focused on goals such as my first 50-miler and qualifying for the Boston Marathon. That left little time in my calendar for training specifically for and racing half marathons.

When I heard of the 2017 St. Elizabeth Healthcare Honor Run Half Marathon, held o...

As Bart Yasso winds down his illustrious running career and role as Chief Running Officer at Runner’s World, it was only natural that he write a book. In “Race Everything,” he dishes on his favorite races, training tips, memorable races and more from his 33 years as a...

At the Indianapolis Monumental on Nov. 4, I finished my 18th marathon and qualified for the Boston Marathon (for the second time) with enough of a cushion that should enable me to do the famous race in 2019.

Make mine a double. That is double chocolate.

At least that’s what it feels like. Roughly three months after I run the Hot Chocolate 15K in St. Louis, I will do the same distance closer to home — and work — in Indianapolis on March 24.

Elizabeth Clor realized her dream of BQing and running Boston once she overcame the mental hurdles.

Baseball catcher and philosopher Yogi Berra is quoted as saying, "Baseball is 90 percent mental. The other half is physical."

That pretty much sums up Elizabeth Clor's que...

I am roughly two weeks out from the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon, followed eight days later by the Honor Run Half Marathon in Florence, Ky.

Running races on back-to-back weekends is somewhat new to me. In fact, I only did this once previously, which I mentioned in a...

When Stephanie Wattenbarger began her running journey she didn’t know about training. “It was just me and my Timex, really bad running shoes, a wish and a prayer.”

After all the self-professed “marching band geek and the drama/acting nerd” was new to sports in 2007 when...

It didn’t take me long to sign up for my first marathon of 2018.

All I needed was one look at the A1A in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., which is held Sunday, Feb. 18. The race promises all I need for a potential PR and BQ race, and more.

First, it’s a flat and course. Today, I w...
