Well, I'm glad you posted the article. This is an old article of faith-that lifting doesn't help your sport-in a few circles still. I hear the question all the time from runners, cylists, triathletes.

The best reason to lift is because it makes you strong. Strong people resist injuries, can defend themselves, including running if necessary, and LOOK much better. I'll take a woman with a hard body any day...or night!
