QT: Recognize a Clickbait Title for What It Is: Complete BS

I stumbled across a post in another running FB group that I’m in that made me stop and pause for a second.

The post was sharing an article from Trail Runner magazine with a headline that read:

Camille Herron’s Advice for Ultra Athletes: Skip the Long Run


I’m not quite sure I’m ready to lump Trail Runner magazine in with Runner’s World as just absolutely garbage mags, but this is definitely a case where they crafted a clickbait title that has very little, if anything, to do with the actual content of the article itself.

This post was originally part of Episode 565 released in May of 2018 and is more or less copied and pasted from that post. The audio, however, is a new take on the topic.

One thing I feel like I talk about every year, though I was surprised to see that I haven’t done a quick tip episode on the subject since 2016, is heat illness.

If you’re planning to run outside in the summer months, being aware of the early signs and symptoms of heat illness can be invaluable.

Let’s not kid ourselves, heat illness is really serious.
