A great collection of articles from the magazine Runners World. If you enjoy running, or just enjoy good writing about people doing crazy things, I can't recommend it enough.

But if you're considering being a runner -- if you're wondering what running is like -- you should probably read something else. These are some pretty unusual and extreme cases. People winning the Boston Marathon (kids! don't try this at home!), people losing limbs and coming close to death. Triumph, tragedy, and more sore muscles than you can throw a stick of Body Glide at.

Fun and fascinating.
