The Virgin Money London Marathon will surely attract a huge crowd to the capital this weekend.
Hundreds of thousands of miles would have been run, many a pair of shoes would have been broken, and many injuries suffered in preparation for this big day. All these for personal challenge, change and a great variety of causes.

And while on the topic of training, this LiveStrong article enumerates the benefits of coconut oil for athletes. The MCTs (medium chain triglycerides) in coconut oil are easily digested for the body to use as direct energy. Studies have also found that these fats may help boost endurance during high- and medium-intensity exercise.
