I would like to take a moment to share some sad news. Adam Jacobs of The Final Sprint has passed away.
I did not know Adam very well (we traded one email long ago), but it was fun watching him build The Final Sprint from a tiny little place on the web to a great running resource that featured some terrific podcasts (hosted by Adam), and blogs by well known US distance runners such as Sarah Hall.
Please join me in passing on heartfelt condolences to Adam’s family and friends.
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.
