I’m Sam Murphy, a running coach and author. My column, Murphy’s Lore, has appeared in Runner’s World magazine monthly since 2010. As well as sharing and commenting on running-related science that can help us all improve performance and reduce injuries, I enjoy reflecting on how running affects my life and how life affects my running. With my husband, uber-runner Jeff Pyrah, I run a company called Running Forever, based in Rye, East Sussex. We offer running adventures and retreats as well as training workshops, guided runs, and bespoke coaching. We also run two local groups – Rye Runners and Tenterden Runners.
