The Science of Running


When thousands of runners race 26.2 miles through the Beaches every February, they are raising money for breast cancer research. But, in the past five years, several thousand of them have also helped scientists understand the sport of long-distance running, and the impact it has on fit, healthy athletes…The project is led by physician Michael Mohseni, with the Division of Emergency Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, where the race begins and ends. It also involves the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, the departments of Family Medicine and Sports Medicine, as well as the clinic’s research into nutritional supplements.
