A Runner's Roundup for June 25, 2014

The First (and Only) Disneyland Marathon. I heard they thawed Walt out to run it. (via +MousePlanet)

Check out Oregon's "prison run." Wait wait wait: they're helping prisoners run FASTER?! What's next, tunneling classes? (via +OPB - Oregon Public Broadcasting)

5 tips for running in the heat. #6: wait until September. (via +Men's Health magazine)

Boston Marathon winner Meb Keflezighi will purposefully finish last in upcoming race. Ah yes, I also finish last on purpose, for charity. That's exactly what I do. (via +Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

Longest footrace on earth happening in New York right now. 3,100 miles. That distance still wouldn't get them to the front of the line at an Apple Store when the new iPhone comes out. (via +Sri Chinmoy Marathon Team Italia)

Barefoot running debate rages on. The nursery rhyme should be changed to, "And these little piggies caused a great deal of stress and arguing in the running industry. (via FiveThirtyEight)

Finally, below: does stretching/warming up actually help? I sure hope so, or I've looked silly many times for nothing. (via +AsapSCIENCE)
