Over the last six months, the weather has not been kind to Dallas road races.

Back in December, ice storms led to the cancellation of that city’s marathon, and on Sunday, March 23, at the Dallas Half-Marathon, high winds might have cost Deena Kastor a U.S. masters record over the 13.1-mile distance.

Despite what LetsRun.com reports to have been 15-mph gusts, the 41-year-old won Sunday’s race and set a new course record with a time Read More

Rob Faugno has learned a lot from his sister, Bartolina, whom he calls his inspiration. On April 11, her 18th birthday, he’ll show his gratitude with an inspiring feat of his own.

March 17, 2014 by NYRR staff

Passing the one-mile mark on Friday, March 14, at the New Balance Nationals Indoor in New York City, Tessa Barrett was a little concerned. Her goal had been to set a new national high school record in the 5,000 meters, but even so, her time of 5:03.4 seemed a touch fast.

“I was like, ‘Oh boy, the last two [miles] are definitely going to be uncomfortable,’” Barrett said, according to ArmoryTrack.com.

March 14, 2014 by NYRR staff

When it comes to running shoes, softer isn’t necessarily better.

That’s the word from Luxembourg, where researchers at the Sports Medicine Research Laboratory have found that shoes with cushioned midsoles are no better at preventing injury than those lacking extra padding.
