I'm doing some writing for Competitor.com now, and I had the chance to talk to Loren Zitomersky, who is planning to run Boston backwards and break the world record for fastest marathon run backwards.
When it comes to running, I’m a numbers person. I like to see all the metrics I can: What was my pace? How far did I go? What was the weather like?
