** RUMINATIONS

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

On days like this my mind turns to ice. I greatly dislike (hate) running in this weather. And then Monday is going to be 8 degrees when I run, with a windchill of -16. There will be black ice, white ice, frostbite ice. Try not to fall. There will be no one out there to rescue you.

The irony is that ice is good for runners because we are always injured. Freeze a paper cup with water, peel off the cup, and roll the ice on the injury. When the ice is halfway melted, drop it in a glass and apply Bourbon. Voila! We don't feel our injury.

We use frozen peas on our injuries. You can use the frozen pea bags multiple times before you eat them. Then you get food poisoning so you can’t run and you give your injury a chance to heal.

Some of us take ice baths after a marathon. I assume this is done by runners who are beyond their fertile years. Personally, I prefer a hot tub and a beer or two or three.

Stay safe out there my friends.

Your friend in running,

Anon

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

I'd rather run a gutsy race, pushing all the way and lose, than run a conservative race only for a win.

—Alberto Salazar

No athlete was ever tougher than Joan Benoit, and no one more defining in her cycle of injury, recovery, victory, and injury— of love and loving too much.

—Kenny Moore, on Joan Benoit Samuelson
