Weather Extremes and You

The late October news about the Getty Fire in northern LA—polluting the air, charring the landscape, and harassing my fraternal twin(!)—got me thinking about climate change and running. Leave it to Runner’s World (What Will Climate Change Mean for Your Favorite Marathon? https://www.runnersworld.com/news/a22833708/how-climate-change-will-affect-races/ ) to tackle the topic with its own brand of velo-journalism. They mention Superstorm Sandy’s cancellation of The New York Marathon and the 60o temperature extremes of Boston, all of which have affected Shawmont runners. Sea-level rise isn’t far behind. On the plus side is more ideal race temperatures in normally more frigid cities. Weather(!) or not you believe in the phenomenon (Srsly. To a sizable percentage of people, I’m writing this piece undergirded by an outlandish assumption.), you still have to plan for the best in any race and settle for the worst. And maybe walk the talk. Unite Philly Run 5K anyone (https://www.unitefitness.com/unite-philly-run/  ;or something like it)? Support for environmental change and 3.1 miles in our own backyard. Btw, I've actually run with an ultra-fine particulate mask on a poor-air-quality day in Wuxi, Jiangsu, China. It's okay until the condensation saturates the mask on a long run and the inhaling starts to get tortured.

** RUNNIN' OFF AT THE MOUTH

Music is my life, but running allows me to appreciate the music of the outdoors.

 --- Gail Williams, Hornplayer

My times become slower and slower, but the experience of the race is unchanged: each race a drama, each race a challenge, each race stretching me in one way or another, and each race telling me more about myself and others.

 --- George Sheehan, runner, physician, author of 12 books on running

Ultimately, the best runners are the ones who are willing to work very hard but who have a little bit of a lazy streak in them.

 --- Benji Durden, American runner, coach, and ran 25 sub-2:20 marathons in less than 10 years
