Forgive my ignorance, but aren't stress fractures more of a function of quantity of running as opposed to speed? (And also to sudden increases in either of the above?). Just askin'

I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Run like a kid again!
Jeff, I did not catch this question earlier. I agree with Mikey. You can get a stress fracture from too much effort, to much intensity, too much quantity, the wrong shoes, worn out shoes and underlying muscular or ligamentous inflammation (such as shin splints). Too much stress and you will get a break.

On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
