** RUMINATIONS

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

This is the worst winter for running that I can remember. Not! But it’s not over yet and it could be. Who knows? When we are miserable and cold and wet, we think this is the worst but I remember when………

March, 1996. Not a bad winter but then we had the 3 foot blizzard followed a few days later by a warm day with heavy rain and floods.

About 15 years ago, the trail was packed solid for 6 weeks. You could run with yak trax but they hadn’t been invented yet. I used studs until they all fell out.

About 10 years ago there was this yukky season and the only place you could run long was looping around the drive. Not bad but a little boring. For several weekends in a row, the temps were in the teens and it was windy.

About five years ago, we were again driven to our winter routes by the trail being icy. There are several versions of the winter route. There is Betsy’s version and there is Teddio’s version. And some others. The one thing they have in common is that they all suck.

This all begs the question. Who came up with the stupid idea of running Boston in April???

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

After 10 years of tough marathon training, it was time to give the body a rest. I really was tired, and I needed to recoup. I needed to go back to 60 to 70 miles per week.

—Priscilla Welch

Injuries made me a cross-training believer.

—Florence Griffith-Joyner

Pre[ fontaine] was the hardest worker in running that I ever had by far. This is the whole thing, his intensity.

—Walt McClure
