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!
