The Science of Running
Distance running is a simple sport. You just put one foot in front of the other for as long as possible. That being said, there is a lot of science involved in distance running. Chemistry, biology, biomechanics and a host of other sciences play a huge role on how your body creates the energy required for running, how your muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues work together to move your body and how your body and mind react to distance running fatigue.
