A Meeting of Like Minds

The first time I ran Rehoboth Beach Marathon in 2017, I was checking out the bookstore in Rehoboth. Inside, I just happened upon Desi, Lakshmi, Diane, and a couple of other familiar faces. It was awesome! There’s something about misery loving company and adoring familiar company.

In the 2018 race I even got to run with Lakshmi. We had a great time comparing notes and encouraging each other. (Then she dusted me. Which was kind of discouraging. Not her fault!) And it was great seeing Tall Dave in both 2017 and 2018 even if we didn’t share a single step together. (His dust had settled by the time I even reached where he was when we met on the nature preserve switchback.)

As I write this, 2 days before Wineglass full in Corning NY (10/28), I’m planning to meet Heather, Christine, BB, and some Elkins Park Beer Runner buds at the start. Even if we don’t run together, being able to see each other and cheer each other on during the race proceedings will be a special experience. Because it always is.

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

I know my going into running with a vengeance was to have something clear, definable, and precise.

 --- Kenny Moore, two-time American Olympic marathoner and 25-year journalist for Sports Illustrated

Strategy-wise, go with your strengths.  If you don’t have a great finish, you must get away to win.

 --- John Treacy, Irish runner, 2-time World Cross Country Champion and Olympic marathon silver medalist

Success is 90% physical and 10% mental.  But never underestimate the power of that 10%.

 --- Tom Fleming, American runner, 2-time winner of the NYC Marathon and awarded the United Nations Peace Medal in 1977
