"If you have the fire, run..." -John Climacus
..nothing takes the place of persistence.....
The Greatest of All Time
Personally, I'd much prefer to have actual arms and an actual chest, but I recognize that I'm sacrificing maximizing my marathon times.

Still feel like this, gorilla man?
I get paid to look good naked, not run fast.
Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose; it's how drunk you get. -- Homer Simpson
What kind of lawyer are you again?
In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion
thank god someone revived this year old thread. what would life be without us mesomorphs gritting our teeth over how we cannot catch up to ectomorphs on the road but feeling some satisfaction that we can open the pickle jars for them if they can wait that long for us at the finish line.
me? I hope to accomplish these goals... run sub-20 5k while age 40+ with a BMI of "overweight". Why? Because there is no way I could lose the required 15-20 pounds to get into the "normal" category on the BMI chart without suffering loses in my enjoyment of life. And the sub-20, while insignificant to runners with actual talent, would represent a major milestone to me. No... I will never win an age group award unless it is a tiny race. I accept that.
peace out. happy holidays!
