Podcast #1: The Science of Running

regulyarnyj-beg_000_2The sport of running has exploded in the last three decades with some runners pushing the envelope of the extreme. But what do we really know about running and its effects?

  • Is there a running type?  
  • Does running affect men and women differently?
  • What do we know about extreme runners – people running races of 50 miles or more?

I talk with Dr. Beth Taylor about the science and psychology of running.  Taylor is an Associate Professor of Kinesiology at the University of Connecticut. She also serves as the Director of Exercise Physiology Research at Hartford Hospital.
