The Growth EQ: Excellent analysis of why and how diets, pills, and bro science make their way into the daily lives of some otherwise smart people.

FloTrack: NIKE employees protest against the company’s plan to name a building after embattled coach Alberto Salazar.

Mayor Pete’s road racing results. Gotta be the fastest candidate in recent years, right?

African bank partners with sports management company and community to put on a 50k in Nigeria. Race is this weekend and they’re expecting four thousand runners across three distances. The prize money is low ($3kUS), but anxious to see see if this type of “championship race” could be used for marathoners to try longer distances.

Time to slow down on some of those workouts, folks.

Note to those who travel to China for races: If they’re playing the Chinese National Anthem, stare at the flag. STARE.

CTS/AJW: Five things aging runners need to do for the rest of their lives. Whew, I’m not “aging” yet. Guess I can still be stupid.

Slow news day…what did I miss?
