"Hi my name is Danielle Gray, I have been reading your email newsletters for about a year now and I love them. I am a high school runner and I love finding a brief summary about a subject and if I decide I like it I can click on the url to find out more about it. It beats going to all the different running sights. I run am a high school distance runner. I run the 5k for cross country season, 1000, 1500, and 3000 for winter track and for spring I do mainly the mile but I like doing the 800 and 3200 every now and then. I was very interested about that 15 year old girl I think her name is Georgie Clarke. I would do anything to run with her for a day. I couldn't believe her time in the 1500. Well I was just writing to tell you that I love your email newsletters and keep up the good work."

"I really appreciate the Runnersweb and especially the digest. As a physiotherapist I often collect and save various articles on injury, rehab, physiology, training, etc from a variety of sources such as journals, online sites, etc. but I would say that I the runnersweb digest is the largest single resource where I find these. Thanks for all the great work you do in putting this together, it's very much appreciated."
