What is a good long run distance for a taper? I have 3 weeks until my 25 mile trail race, and am officially on my taper. My peak long run was 20 miles last Sat, but I'm not sure the best way to schedule my next 2 long runs in a way that will keep me strong for race day, and reduce potential for injury or "over-train". Thanks!

Read an interesting article about the course record for both men & woman running Boston. It said that with the new "Super running shoes" many course records have been broken. They say that if the weather is right, no rain, and if the wind blows in the right direction, someone will break the record... It's the only one that hasn't fallen ... Is it getting to the point where we'll see records broken not by minutes, but a handful of seconds...

Thanks Nilima. Have you read “The Overstory” by Richard Powers or Bewilderment by same author. Both intriguing…!

I just ran a half marathon this morning. I have cramps in my feet now. Anything that will help with this? Overall, I feel good but every time I get up, my feet and toes start cramping- which is painful and annoying! Thanks 😊

I love running movies. I’ve watched many. My favorite is still Chariots of Fire but I’ve enjoyed several more. Good documentaries too. I’d love to hear everyone’s favorite.

I am curious about runners habits of walking during a run. I am familiar with Run-Walk-Run but am speaking of those who just go out for a run. If I’m doing 3 to 5 miles I typical will not stop-and-walk but I wouldn’t say I have never done that. Sometimes a 60 second walk just “feels” right. When I am running longer distances I will take a few minutes to walk, grab a drink and maybe some energy beans. Is this common? Just curious if this is a typical thing for runners?

John L. Parker is my favorite author on fictional running books. Any others the group can recommend, fiction or non-fiction.

Thought I’d share the following … unrelated to running … related to the holiday that is this weekend: “I saw a bunch of rabbits hopping backwards yesterday … guess it was a receding hare line!”

I enjoy trail running and host a podcast. I'm always looking for new podcasts to listen to and I'm wondering if there are any trail running specific podcasts you all are listening to and would recommend?

Happy Easter weekend all!

Since I don’t drink milk anymore, I make my own cashew milk, and mix some chocolate protein powder into it—SO delightful!!

Good morning Terrell,

I have two quick questions? What is the best recovery drink after running? I’ve been using Nuun and it seems to work OK. Second, which is a funny question! What are the best socks to wear, especially on longer runs?
