Running and Triathlon Links Monday!

Lots and lots of good links today, so let's get right to it:

The Science of Sports geeks tell you not to worry about running in the heat - as long as you run smart, that is

Next, the Science of Sports blog takes a look at what actually happened while running in the heat of Boston this year - as you may know, I did my own study on this

A guy named Max Fisher at the Atlantic thinks he has it all figured out why the Kenyans are great at the marathon - I think he does not have it all figured out

Stories of triathletes in the med tent - ah, the med tent...good times, good times

SMU cross-country runner Monika Korra tells a tale of rape, survival, strength and hope - she sounds like a tough person; it's a good read

In case you missed it, Seattle's own Uli Steidl owned the Boston Marathon - not to mention, he's won the Seattle Marathon EIGHT times

NBC is actually going to stream everything from the 2012 Olympics - Good golly, Miss Molly, you mean I don't have to stay up until 2:00 in the morning to see 30 seconds worth of triathlon coverage like in 2008?

Elite triathlon coach Matt Dixon gives a great presentation on how to be a stud triathlete - good stuff

Good article from ESPN on Desiree Davila and the 2012 Olympic Marathon - the competition will be incredible on the women's side in London

Since we're on the subject, here's Kara Goucher on her preparation for the 2012 Olympic Marathon - Kara, Desi and Shalane have got to be the deepest team of marathoners the US has ever sent to the Olympics

Wurtele and Piampiano win at the New Orleans Ironman 70.3 Triathlon - well, sort of; they canceled the swim leg, so it was actually a duathlon

Javier Gomez wins the European Championship ITU triathlon - he's a great runner

Photo is of Uli winning some race or another...he's won a bunch.
