When the sun comes up...

“Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.” Anon

My curtains

Hey, you guys. Did you know that the curtains in my kitchen are made from souvenir heat sheets from the 2009 ING NYC Marathon? They are.

I have the NYC Half coming up this weekend. I don't imagine I'll do as well as I did after my 20 weeks of training for the marathon but I'm looking forward to it anyway.

It's that lovely time of year. I went running in shorts and short sleeves this morning. Wonderful.

Yawn Smack Yawn Punch Yaawn

"None of us really grow up. All we ever do is learn how to behave in public." -- Keith Johnstone

But how come it's so hard for some people to learn how to be?

I hate when you must have regular dealings with someone, and you can see the infant grabbing things out of peoples' hands and shouting, "Mine!" isn't even remotely grown up.

I guess "must" isn't really accurate. I'll have to evaluate that.

Elites had to start somewhere

Yeah, I am a plodder I guess. Way to make me feel bad on the way to my first marathon, NY Times and snobbish jerks.

Way to make me feel so much better, Letters to the Editor in response.

Oh, also, Mary Wittenberg responded to the article as well.

I want everything that I want

I want Boyfriend to be healthy and able to run the marathon without pain and fear of permanent injury. I want this to happen immediately. I want to be able to give him advice about what he should do without worrying in the back of my mind that I am thinking too much about me and not enough about him. I want IT bands not to be a thing. I want to cross the finish line with him. I want him not to have pain. I want him to know that everything is going to be ok. I want to know that everything is going to be ok. I want all of this and I want it now.
