** RUMINATIONS

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

The Definition of Rumination

Have you ever thought about what the word ‘rumination’ means and nearly got sick when you discovered the disgusting truth after you actually looked it up? I have. (Nod to Tom Papa’s ‘Out in America’ segment of ‘Live from Here’—formerly ‘A Prairie Home Companion’.)

Wikipedia’s definition #1 is what some of us actually have occasionally when puttin’ in the miles: a deep or considered thought about something. Definition #2 is what it really means: the action of chewing the cud. You realize it comes from the word ‘rumen’ don’t you? As in ‘the first stomach of a ruminant’ like cows (Lexico). When you’re ruminating, you’re coughing up an idea and mentally chewing on it again until it’s fine enough to pass through in the thoroughly-masticated state to the long-term memory.

If no one’s ever shared that in the Run Report, it’s time someone did. And if someone has, it’s time someone did it again. Chew on that during the next Shawmont ascent. If it doesn’t make you sick.

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

I ran to get a letter jacket, a girlfriend.

 --- Jim Ryun, former U.S. Representative and first high schooler to break the four-minute mile

There is something about the ritual of the race --- putting on the number, lining up, being timed --- that brings out the best in us.

 --- Grete Waitz, first woman to run a marathon under 2 hours and 30 minutes

There are other reasons, besides training, why things change; life intervenes.

 --- Francie Larrieu Smith, made FIVE American Olympic teams
