"I love the tips - I always pick up a new point when reading your newsletter! Great job!" - Chris L

"I enjoy smart running. The tips go deeper and cover more than what I get in Runner's World for example. I am enjoying the bridging the gap series, I see myself trying to close that void. I forward smart running to all my running pals!" - Theresa H

"I really enjoy reading your newsletter. I especially love your tips on diet and the importance of stretching. I ran my first Boston Marathon this year and I am totally hooked... on Marathons, on Running, and on your newsletter!"
