** RUMINATIONS

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

Remember Thursday? High winds, heavy rain, and cold. The perfect storm? Eh? I’m not running in that. We will switch things around, or (god forbid) use the treadmill. Or just bag it and enjoy the day off. I do that frequently.

Well, if that was the perfect storm what was last year’s Boston Marathon? A perfectly perfect storm? High winds directly in your face, heavier rain that sometimes looked like a sheet of water, and temperatures in the 30s. I’m certainly bagging this one….so why did we all NOT bag it. When I got home, everyone told me they would have bagged it.

The answer is simple. We are coddled in a race. Water every mile, porta pottys everywhere, other runners to draft off. And we are theoretically running faster and maintaining our heat. When we are in trouble, there is always a fan or medical tent. Why wouldn’t we run it?? Because it sucked! Never doing that again. Yea, right, who am I kidding?

The forecast for race day in Boston is perfect this year! Yeah! Oh yea, it was perfect last year one month out….

Your friend in running,

Anon

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

As athletes, we have ups and downs. Unfortunately, you can't pick the days they come on. 

 --- Deena Kastor on fracturing her foot shortly after the marathon start at the Beijing Olympic Games 

To avoid starting out too fast, you have to “have eyes in your stomach.” As we say in Norwegian, “a good gut instinct of control.”

 --- Grete Waitz 

Sex before the race? Fine, it will do you no harm. But try not to distract the starter.

 --- Roger Robinson, author, masters runner
