The secret to running well

I thought I'd try out my new foot for real last night and enter the Tuesday Night Race. The ones that are at Kincaid are all pretty much suffer fests with hill after steep hill. Amazingly I ran the farm league division (5K) and felt great.
I'd even go as far as to say I felt better last night and ran faster than I did at any of the Tuesday night races last fall, and last year I had been training to run long distances on trails.
The secret is to run sporadically for a year, about once a month. Then take off from all exercise in the month leading up to your race. You'll get faster and be more fit than ever before.
I should write for Runner's World Magazine.
