What makes an elite runner

Ever wonder what it would be like to be an elite runner? This article describes what sets elite runners apart from everyday runners.

The article isn’t really surprising although a couple of points caught my eye. The first being how quickly they go through shoes. At 2.5-3 months I thought I was going through quickly while training for a marathon but elite runners go through a pair of shoes every 2-4 weeks.

The other point was that elite runners tend to be injured once a month. I guess it really shouldn’t be surprising when they are pushing themselves as hard as they are in training.
