What’s your hot take when it comes to running?
Tightly laced shoes are worse than loose. Make fists with your toes (like Die Hard) while tying them and then relax. Perfect amount of room every time.
The only people who want to hear about your runs are other runners.
You don't have to jog in place at a red light.
You’re going to miss it when it’s gone.
Ran a 10 miler yesterday, only 90 people, small local race. There was a 78 year old who finished in less than 90 minutes. 78 f#cking years old, and he’s still going strong. I want to grow old like that dude.
I’m never training to run a half or full marathon. It will never be my goal and I’m cool with that.
When I'm not running, I want to be running. When I'm about to run, I do not want to run. When I am running, it's pretty cool.

Women Train More than Male Counterparts
Of the 51,402 finishers at the New York Marathon on November 5th, 55 percent were men, 44 percent women, and less than a percent identified as non-binary. Data released from Strava, the physical activity tracker, revealed how runners trained for and raced the notoriously tricky course and, more specifically, identified why women may be more successful in reaching their race goals than men
According to Strava’s data, for runners aiming for a four-hour finish, women logged 21 percent more miles across a 16-week training cycle. Women aiming for a sub-four-hour finish also trained more than their male counterparts.
Past studies have shown that men are more likely to exhibit riskier pacing strategies and are therefore more likely to hit the wall (a point in the race where you run out of energy) later on in a race. Data from Strava confirmed that women are more likely to hit a negative split in their races – keeping enough in the tank to run the second half faster than the first. That was true not only at this year’s New York City Marathon, but also at the Boston Marathon, the 2022 California International Marathon, and last year’s New York City Marathon, even with its brutal weather conditions.
Strava said women were more likely to hit their goal in all pace groups. For runners targeting a finish under three hours, women were 33 percent more likely to meet their goal and 12 percent more likely to meet their goal under four hours.
