** RUMINATIONS

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

Damn. The new apple watch 4 is a runner’s dream. You can get an EKG on the go. You can tell if that little heart flutter we get is atrial fib or something more benign. With a louder speaker, we will be able to use it as a real phone as long as we don’t care if other people listen in. No need to carry a phone if you buy the cellular model for only $100 plus $10 per month. (Kinda steep) If we fall, and don’t move for a minute, the phone automatically calls 911. Then it has all of the other do-dads like a heart rate monitor, reminders to move if we sit too long, etc.

Now if we could only get that GPS to be anywhere close to accurate. I used my apple watch to run a marathon and it said it was 24.6 miles. It wouldn’t give me credit for finishing. Then, two hours later, it reminded me to move. Really? I guess it was jealous?

So it goes.

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

Ten years ago when I started coaching (at Cal State San Marcos) I stopped identifying myself as an athlete. I stopped identifying myself as the American record-holder. So the time I started coaching, I was a coach and all that matters to me was my coaching and my athletes and the old mile-record was just something that was nice.

—Steve Scott, who ran 136 sub-4-minute miles during his storied career

It's so gratifying to take a kid— recruiting them, bringing them in, working with them, developing them and then having them achieve their goals, even if their goals are far below what I achieved or other people are achieving at other universities. When you help them through that whole process and they improve and are happy with their performance, as a coach it can't make me any happier.

—Steve Scott, in 2008 Running Times interview
