"Learn the route as far a day or two in advance if you can.  Walk it and see where the tough parts may be.  You could use a watch to track pace.  You could also just listen to your body.  If the pace "feels fast"…"

Does anyone have advice for my first 5K?

Hi all,I started running at the beginning of summer and I am planning on signing up for my first 5K at the end of the month. I've already ran 5 kilometers on an indoor track, so I'm not worried about finishing. I just want to do my best and not look silly. Are there any bits of race etiquette I should be aware of?  How do I keep track of my pace/time during the race? Does anyone have any helpful advice on the matter?Thanks,~MattSee More

Podcast #125: Why The Great Gatsby Endures With Maureen Corrigan

I know it’s cliche, but my all-time favorite novel is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. To me it offers prescient warnings on the perils of a consumer society and perfectly captures the American drive to strive for the unattainable, even if it results in tragedy. NPR’s literary critic, Maureen Corrigan, is also a huge Gatsby fan. A far bigger […]
