Kara Goucher is the leading female marathoner in the U.S. right now, and will be trying to mix it up with the East Africans in Berlin at Sunday's IAAF World Championships. She talks about adopting a more East African style of training and racing that involves less tracking of miles and pacing and more "enjoyment of the battle."
This is a great read, and as a person with limited capacity for long periods of intellectual work, I like the concept of "running more, thinking less"!!!! Run and race on, and cheer on Kara on Sunday. Aloha, Matt
PS: This is my contribution to current discussion on the role of GPS technology and running. I'm for less technology and more "battle."
