This week Michael recommends: the opera, specifically Gioachino Rossini’s “The Thieving Magpie.” Or, alternatively, checking out a movie or art gallery the day before race day to get your mind off of running.

Tim recommends: that races adopt the crazy pace-setting laser used at the Breaking2 attempt.

And, Sinead recommends: the New Balance Fresh Foam 1080.
