I live on two principles:
1) Lao Tzu said 2500 years ago, “Fail to honour people, they fail to honour you”
2) Steve Jobs said, “People with passion can change the world for the better”
SpeedEndurance.com is based out of Vancouver, Canada, Rome, Italy London UK and founded by Jimson Lee.
In short, it’s the book I never wrote. Yet.

What this site is about
This site is a fun, no-nonsense, useful, and interesting approach to Track & Field, lifestyle, health, and fitness.
Generally, the posts will vary on a weekly basis with topics of:
- Speed & speed endurance training tips and actual workouts
- Analysis, commentary and videos of elite performances
- Supplements and nutrition
- Weight training & circuit training workouts
- Product reviews of books, DVDs, and training gadgets
- Injury prevention and recovery
- Leadership, sports psychology and success
- Olympic history
I was inspired to write these articles after 30 years of experience and being fed up of seeing gimmicks presented by personal trainers always trying to sell you a gadget. As well, I was fed up of seeing the million books on fad diets even though some have good ideas and intentions.
I’m not selling anything, though the articles here on this site alone can easily fill up a book or two. No gizmo’s, no quick fix, no magic pills. All the information provided here on this site is free of charge.
To make an analogy in the Computer world, I am taking an Open Source approach such as Linux and offering a service for free. I will at times, however, use the Microsoft approach if I plan to copy something :)
