On the advice of British running historian Andy Milroy, I have also added a separate section on the long ultradistance runners, athletes with expertise in races beyond 100 km. As Andy correctly pointed out, this is a special group of runners competing in racing distances that require different attributes than the shorter distances. This was not something I originally appreciated.
I have also updated and expanded the medical sections of the blog, especially with new details about causes of running injuries. There is also exciting new information about the benefits of exercise, especially with respect to the prevention of heart disease and possibly even cancer.

The text has also been reorganized, and all these changes combine to considerably update, expand, and widen the international scope of Lore of Running.
Inasmuch as the first edition has been called the “bible” of running, so this edition is, I believe, only better.
Finally, I must reflect on the wisdom I have gained in rewriting this blog, wisdom that is above and beyond the knowledge contained in these pages. I have been left in complete wonderment about the human body and its design. It is clear that the body was designed in anticipation of the demands that might be placed on it and with the capacity to adapt to those apparently unforeseen demands. Each new physiological discovery continues to reveal the harmony and the logic of the human design. One is left to wonder how this was brought about. Are there laws directing mammalian design, much like the physical laws that govern the universe? Who or what is it that determines these laws?
