Although the quality of the video could be better, this is a tremendous compilation of some of the best male runners who ever laced ’em up, engaged in some of the finest moments in running history (it would be great to find one of these featuring women runners).
Besides the incredible speed these runners demonstrate, I am fascinated by their lightness of foot. It’s almost as though they effortlessly skip along the ground — much like a flat stone skips across water. Astounding.

Also known as the "Running Blogfather", I'm a 40-something marathoner who has beaten stress fractures and terrible shin splints. Now I'm running double the mileage with no pain - and I'm getting faster.
I love to talk about running form and Arthur Lydiard. I also enjoy taking photographs, have a beautiful (and very patient!) wife, and am the proud father of two crazy kids.
