Do the Due

When it comes to running I can be a bit of a metrist. That is, I’m all about the metrics of a run, particularly (like so many runners) the distance. And being an “ist” is just being someone who devotes attention, whether due or undue, to whatever the prefix is; think economist or elitist.

One particular SRC run, I was with my partner of the nonce engaging in the obligatory exchange of distances for the morning. I was doing my usual Shawmont, 14 miles. When I asked my partner their plan, they replied sheepishly, “I’m just doing 8.” 

Well, I let ’em have it: “Don’t you ever apologize for the distance you run! Most Americans don’t even exercise regularly, much less run. And I know for a fact you’re an awesome [insert race distance of choice less than a Shawmont]-er. 

This time my partner was sheepish for a different reason. The point is that anyone who exercises is awesome--runners even more so, no matter the distance. But that’s my prejudice. My contribution to running, aside from advocating for negative splitting every effort will hopefully be this: Do the due.

Training is principally an act of faith.  The athlete must believe in its efficacy: he must believe that through training he will become fitter and stronger.

 --- Franz Stampfl, one of the 20th century’s leading athletics coaches

Distance running, to a professional athlete in my day, was five laps around the field.  And you stopped each lap to take your pulse.

 --- Lynn Swann, NFL Steelers wide receiver 1974-82

The marathon is charismatic.  It has everything.  It has drama.  It has competition.  It has camaraderie.  It has heroism.

 --- the late Fred Lebow, long-time race director of the NYC marathon
