Running Times, the magazine for the highly competitive runner, is now on the iPad.

• Shalane’s Quest: She’s an Olympic medalist and the top female distance runner in the country, but shalane Flanagan won’t rest until she has a Boston marathon championship to her name.
It’s everything to her. as she puts in 110-mile weeks in January at 7,000 feet above sea level, she not only wants a 2014 podium position to notch her ultimate athletic accomplishment, but to give Americans a reason to cheer again on Boylston street.
• The Golden Age of Girls HS Running: We’re living in a golden age for girls high school running. With Mary Cain, Alexa Efraimson, Sarah Baxter, Elise Cranny and others putting up times that seemed inconceivable a few years back, this time period is as exciting as the Alan Webb/Ryan Hall/Dathan Ritzenhein era in boys running a decade ago. Our writer, Marc Bloom, has 35 years experience following high school running and examines the factors that are contributing to help girls run at a higher level than ever thought possible, even while they’re balancing AP classes and SAT prep.
• The Art and Science of the Taper: To run your best when the stakes are highest is the goal of every serious runner. One of the most essential steps in getting the best out of yourself is tapering properly—that is, cutting back on mileage while maintaining or increasing intensity in the hope of bettering your running performances. But how do you know if you are giving yourself the best chance for success or sacrificing fitness and routine? The best taper isn’t one-size-fits-all: it depends on the type of runner you are, how you handle recovery and the stress of racing, as well as the distance you plan to race. We look at a number of tapering models and the theory behind them to help you plan your next taper, so that you can race your best.
