Extra, Extra, Run All About It: The Week in Running, November 29 - December 6

Extra Extra

By Peter Washkowitz

Dear readers, let's take a look back at the week in running:

* As reported on PE.com (Southern California) on November 29, despite the horribly unfortunate spate of deaths in recent marathons, research indicates that, historically, very few people run (no pun intended) the risk of death while preparing for, and running of, a marathon or any other similar long-distance race. In addition to a 2007 University of Toronto study which found 26 runner deaths after studying 3.3 million runners in 750 marathons held during a 30-year period (a risk of death of 0.8 per 100,000 runners) and a recent study from Duke University which found that aerobic exercise, such as running, without a change in diet can improve people's health and affect levels of good and bad cholesterol and insulin resistance, a May study out of the University of Manitoba in Canada reported at a San Diego found that cardiac abnormalities experienced by some marathoners after races are temporary and that those abnormalities don't damage the heart.

* As reported on Celebrity-Gossip.net on November 30, 2009, Keeping Up With Kim Kardashian may be harder than simply turning into her reality television show. Using the on-line service, Twitter, Kim Kardashian tweeted to all her fans on Thanksgiving last week that, just because her family's Thanksgiving feast was cooking in the oven, there's 'no excuse for getting lazy during the holidays' and that she was planning on hitting the treadmill right up until her family sat for dinner. Just like her boyfriend Reggie Bush's football team, The New Orlean Saints, it appears that Kim Kardashian is running away from the competition despite not actually going anywhere (since, obviously, one never moves forward whilst running on a treadmill)!
