I think I can see where this article is coming from 100%. Two things stick out that I disagree with. First, there are runners who run hard to run 4:00. Why criticize them. Second, synthetic fabric is the best thing since sliced bread.
I agree on the injury thing. I am almost never injured. Since running Grandmas this spring and training more than normal I have had 3 knee injuries and nagging back pain. Some may not be running related, but I'm sure it's not coincidence. I'm a 60mpw guy on a normal year and don't get injured doing that. 70mpw and long runs must have got the best of me!
