I beat my dad. (He's 83.) I lost to my nephew. (He's 19.) I ran 22:09, about 40 seconds slower than a year ago. Next time I'll be ready!

comment Why do runners immediately stop after a run? Does opening your mouth more while running affect oxygen intake?
No. It's automatic. Here's an interesting site that shows how CO2 output increases with exercise: sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/project_ideas/…

comment Why do runners immediately stop after a run? Does opening your mouth more while running affect oxygen intake?
For each molecule of O2 you inhale, you have to exhale a molecule of CO2. Otherwise, you'll get too much CO2 in your system and your muscles will quit working, or at least slow down. This is automatic, though, because you always exhale after you inhale.

comment Post-Running Foot Pain
Plantar fasciitis is tendon inflammation/damage, I believe. It's very common and there is a ton of info on the internet about it. It's slow to heal, but you can expect full recovery.

comment Why does standing for too long make knees sore?
I'm not sure why, but if you move around while you're standing, shift your weight a lot, and bend your knees occasionally it will help. In other words, look like you have to go to the restroom all the time.

comment Persistent mild knee pain due to squats - push through or stop?
Try squatting less deep. That will probably help.
