Thomas Cunningham-Maffetoning to Boston!
By Dr. Mark Cucuzzella

Sharing the story of online friend and fast Masters runner Thomas Cunningham. It’s never too late to learn new things about your inner machinery. Thomas see you in Hopkinton! Your butcher is right….the Ribeye is awesome and you cannot mess it up.


I ran my first marathon in 1994 in a time of 3:44. Over the last 23 years, I’ve been able to bring that time down significantly. I’ve run three sub-3:00 marathons, including a 2:58 in Boston last year. At 48 years old, I am still looking to improve, and I believe that my best race is ahead of me.

Last fall I made a couple of significant changes to diet and training, and I’m looking forward to seeing the results in Boston in a couple of weeks. To continue reading, please visit: http://naturalrunningcenter.com/2017/03/18/thomas-cunningham-maffetoning-boston/

An Unlikely Journey from Cancer to Minimalist Ultra Runner- My Friend Randy Kreill

By Dr. Mark Cucuzzella

Sharing the amazing journey back to health from my barefoot and sandal running friend Randy Kreill. I got to share some beautiful trails with Randy in Yellow Springs Ohio on a recent USAF trip. Randy and I have civil discussions on diet. He is all plant and I add some bacon. I wish the rest of the health care world would respect each other too on this topic. Barefoot and Minimal runners at the heart of it are cut from the same cloth. Randy has not had a running injury in 6 years and he runs some crazy distances on gnarly trails. Enjoy Randy’s story.

OSIM Sundown Marathon Singapore - Sleep Can Wait
BY Jaqa

It is not often you see a marathon with a starting time of 00:00. Yes, that's midnight! The Sundown Marathon is the second biggest marathon in Singapore with 30000 runners spread over 42, 21, 10 and 5km kiddies race. the 10 and 5 km are run in the evening and the full starts at midnight and the half at 01:00.

The big advantage is avoiding the sun, and the heat, which is very theoretical here as it still means 26 Celsius and 85%+ humidity. But if you are used to Singapore running, that's very pleasant!

Saturday was mostly spend in a slight state of stress, wondering about what to eat, getting a good nap in, not feeling too tired, and the all-important output question as going to the public loo's in the early hours of Sunday is pretty daunting to say the least.

The hours crawled by and finally I could hail a taxi and get to the start, which...
