** RUMINATIONS

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

Well, another Philly marathon bites the dust. At least the runners did. For many years, after a marathon, I would say “that was my last marathon”. Then an hour, a day, or a week later I would be looking for my next one. Then, my wife just started giving me the eyeballs to the ceiling. I stopped. Still torturing myself. If you want to remember what the day after your marathon looked like, check this you tube video out…Day after marathon….

Happy beginning of the holiday season,

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

 The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare. 

--- Juma Ikangaa, of Tanzania, second-place Boston Marathon finisher three consecutive years and two-time winner of Tokyo Marathon 

If you talk to an elite or near-elite American distance runner today, they'll tell you that the primary aim of their training is to avoid injury. If you had talked to a similar athlete 25 years ago—somebody doing the ’82 Boston, for example—he would have told you the idea of training was to run fast. 

--- Tom Derderian, coach of the Greater Boston Track Club

Say no to “no pain, no gain” and instead “train, don't strain.”

--- Bob Glover, The Runner's Handbook
