Need expert advice on runner’s knee, stiffness

So I have almost two decades of running experience, but I recently had to take several months off. Before the hiatus, I was at 25 to 40 miles per week (mpw). Coming back from zero, I got up to about 15 mpw in about a month, and started to have some knee pain. Nothing sharp, mostly stiffness when my knee was inactive for awhile. I know the easy answer is to back off, and I have, but I’m eager to get back to 40 mpw, so can any informed experts advise on what’s happening to me? [more inside]

Searching for news report of Australian marathon runner...

Sometime during the mid or late 1980s, I remember my parents discussing a news report of a marathon run held in Australia during the height of summer. One runner, the focus of the report, had apparently run so long (without rehydrating? maintaining electrolyte balance? resting?) that their leg muscles denatured or "cooked" and parts of leg needed to be surgically removed. Is this real? Can anyone guide me to a news report or similar evidence? Case study? Exhibit of medical curios?

Help with project? Please list fictional cities !

For a project I'm currently working on as part of my graduation in Graphic Design, I wanted to compile something like an atlas of fictional cities. These may be from books, legends, stories, video games, advertisements, comics, really whatever... Even "real" cities but alternate versions, imagined or in some way deviate from their real counterpart are valid. [more inside]

Sports Medicine Doctor Filter: Twin Cities Recommendations

My friend, who is a serious runner and has been having intense and un-fixable leg pain connected with running for the last few months, needs recommendations for high caliber sports medicine physicians in the Twin Cities metro area. She will likely be paying for appointments out of pocket (high deductible on her health insurance plan), so bonus points for more affordable or financially accommodating providers/practices. She is NOT looking for recommendations for a physical therapist, chiropractor, acupuncturist, or anything else similar to that, strictly sports medicine folks. Who should she see?

Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up, its carpet time! COOL RUNNERS!

Where can I get modern, bright or otherwise designy carpet runners online or in Southern California? Long, long, by-the-foot options preferred, but if I find something I like I might just buy several of the same one. Other relevant information: I am allergic to beige.
