Where does running pain come from? We can run for weeks, months, even years without pain. Then it hits us from out of the blue! We have to stop running for weeks or months and nurse our bodies back to health.

First of all, what is pain? Scientific American magazine published an article entitled, "Is Pain a Construct of the Mind?" They make a good case for questioning the source of pain based on the habits of Dennis Rogers, considered pound-for-pound the world's strongest man.

He has an abnormally high number of muscle fibers but he also has an unusual way of dealing with pain--he has no fear of it. He doesn't care if it hurts and he rarely gets injured. In Dennis's mind, pain is something not to be concerned with.
