Link farm: March 28, 2012

My friend Blaine Moore is doing this thing for Camp Sunshine in Maine this month where he runs 1 mile on the first day, 2 miles on day two… well. you get the idea.  Day 31 is Saturday, and he’s inviting you all to Camp Sunshine to join in for all or part of the month’s final 31 mile run.  Feel free to donate whether or not you can make it to Maine.

On Facebook, there’s a new group trying to get Roger Bannister chosen to light the Olympic Torch in London later this year.  Bannister is a true sporting legend and icon, the first man ever to run a mile in less than 4 minutes.  Like and share!

In the ongoing discussion of running form inspired by the book “Born to Run”, this quote from Dana Reid encapsulates my feelings perfectly: “Think more about where your foot is landing and less about which part of your foot lands first.”  Read more at Competitor.

And finally, from the “Look at Me” department, last weekend’s video of interviews from the Boston Marathon course in Newton was picked up by the Runner’s World/Running Times Marathon blog.
