    Ethiopian runner Shitaye Gemechu (real name) was the fastest woman at the Dallas Marathon on Sunday, finishing the 26.2-mile race in 2:26:45.

    SF Runner Uses GPS Tracking Technology to Draw Penises on Maps (Pics)

    Based on that headline alone, I’d like everyone to give a round of applause to Claire Wyckoff, an avid runner who uses the Nike+ technology to track her dick-shaped runs through the Golden Gate city. Before Claire, we didn’t even know this was a thing you could do, though one time I missed an exit on […]

    Canadian James Nielsen Breaks Beer Mile World Record (Video)

    The beer mile involves running a mile while downing a beer after every lap—a task that is almost certainly harder than it sounds, unless you have a lot of experience concurrently drinking beer and running. The previous record beer mile was five minutes and nine seconds, set by Jim Finlayson back in 2007. That record […]

    9 Celebrities You Wouldn’t Have Thought Could Run A Marathon

    Marathon season has kicked into high gear. If it hasn’t already happened in your town, pretty soon a bunch of people with little to no experience at distance running will put on their recently-purchased water bottle utility belts and Nike Dri-FIT shirts, then take to the streets to prove to themselves that they can do […]

    Picture Of The Day: Run B*tches!

    I’m not quite sure what is worse.  Their sign, or the fact that they are sucking back a couple of cold beers in front of all those passing marathoners, half of whom are likely struggling to fight through a serious case of dehydration? Based on that, I think I’ll go with the beers.

    Oftentimes I find myself sitting at home contemplating whether I want to go running or not.  Sure, I know that the feeling I get after finishing a good, long run is great, but who wants to deal with the aching legs and shortness of breath throughout the duration of it?  If only there was something […]

    Sometimes, the “next best thing to being there” can be pretty damn boring. Many sports hinge on atmosphere or a sense of intimacy that the camera just can’t capture.

    For 44-years, Tommie Smith’s 200-meter record time withstood the test of timed track.  His 19.5 hand-timed record has survived some mighty big names over the years, but it couldn’t hold off American sprint star, Tyson Gay. Gay lowered Smith’s record time by 0.09 seconds on the straight track created at the Manchester Great City Games. […]
