** RUMINATIONS

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Drugs!! “I never inhaled”

So, I am in drug crisis. I’ve tried every fad. Bee pollen, salt, glucosamine, B-12, magnesium, chromium picolate, iron, and Aleve. The only one that I know worked for me was Aleve. I think magnesium and glucosamine work so I am sticking with it. I still take B-12 and iron out of habit and they are harmless. Bee pollen and salt are just sooooo yesterday. Salt can actually be bad for you.

Now, my doctor tells me to take baby aspirin and drop the Aleve. The one thing that actually works! Now I ache all over and have a lower chance of stroke. I feel every running injury I ever had. Is it in my head? Is it worth it?

All I can say is ow! Oo!  Ow!

I’m done complaining….for now!

Your friend in running,

Anon

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

Only think of two things— the gun and the tape. When you hear the one, just run like hell until you break the other.

—Early 1900s British track Coach Sam Mussabini, whose runners won a total of eleven medals over five Olympics; he was portrayed by actor Ian Holm in Chariots of Fire

 

Coaching an elite runner is something like driving an expensive car. The coach's main job is to steer.

—John Babington, longtime coach of the Wellesley College cross country and track team

 

If a man coaches himself, then he has only himself to blame when he is beaten.

—Roger Bannister
