It’s a bird, No! it’s a plane, No It’s SuperGene. Man of Steel. Ok. HaHa. Very funny. Can’t you think of something clever?

We all see the Clark Kent version of Gene. Otherwise known as Just. Self deprecating..maybe a little passive and introverted. And then the gun goes off. The glasses come off and off he goes to a new record…for himself and for the world.

I continue to marvel at his achievements. Go Gene!!!

** NEWS ITEMS **

*** NO BRAINER, RIGHT? ***

Email exchange the day before the 2019 Boston Marathon:

JR had a bad infection, and Milesman Hal had a bad medical test the week before.

Here we go:

JR:” What’s the word”

Milesman: “My cardiologist didn't call me back so I'm running”

JR: “My doctors forbid me to run- what time should I meet you at the bus?”

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

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

I went at each race like there was a gold medal at stake. It wasn't like I ran one hard, then slacked off the next. Every time it was my best effort. I didn't know how to go at it any other way.

—Dick Beardsley
