“You can’t stop running, until you start.” – Mark Remy, Dumb Runner
When it comes to helping runners, there is lots of shitty information out there online.
Running should be simple.
If you agree with this sentiment, then this interview I did with Mark Remy is going to resonate with you.
About Mark Remy
Mark Remy is a runner and writer based in Portland, Oregon. He has been a columnist and writer at Runner’s World since 2007. Mark has been running since 1994 and has run 27 marathons, including Boston eight times.
In 2015, Mark launched Dumb Runner, which is a website for runners who enjoy laughter and pie (his words!). Most of the online advice for beginner runners make running too complicated. Dumb Runner, well, dumbs everything down because Mark believes running should be simple.
If that wasn’t enough, Mark has also written four books on running and one training journal. Keep reading because I am giving away a copy of each to one lucky person.
I highly recommend you check out Mark’s writing. Here a few articles/posts that I recommend you start with:
