        There is another one in April each year in Southern Illinois--River to River Relay. 8 runners, 80 miles, 240 teams!
          I ran the River to River in Illinois this year. It was a great race -- and the most well organized race I've ever run. Really amazing since there were 240 teams of 8 people each and 240 vans and the race course runs 80 miles from one edge of the state to the other. Smile Running on a team was a great experience. Our team placed in our age division so we get a guaranteed spot next year. I can't wait! Teresa

              Idiot

                I'm confused. You had 8 people in a 6-person limit relay? Confused

                I decided that if I'm going to call myself a runner, I should probably run.

                    Okay, sorry. Got confused by the syntax.

                      Now that was a bath...

                        A Poem... But I use words as others use algebraic signs: with meticulousness, with caution, with the precision of the artisan. I sculpt in words. I stop. I tilt my head. I listen to the echoes. The tables of emotional resonance. The fine tuned reverberations of pain and love and fear. Air waves and photonic ricochets answered by chemicals secreted in my listeners and my readers. I know beauty. I have always known it in the biblical sense, it was my passionate mistress. We made love. We procreated the cold children of my texts. I measured its aesthetics admiringly. But this is the mathematics of grammar. It was merely the undulating geometry of syntax. I wrote: "My world is painted in shadows of fear and sadness. Perhaps they are related - I fear the sadness. To avoid the overweening, sepia melancholy that lurks in the dark corners of my being - I deny my own emotions. I do so thoroughly, with the single-mindedness of a survivor. I persevere through dehumanization. I automate my processes. Gradually, parts of my flesh turn into metal and I stand there, exposed to sheering winds, as grandiose as my disorder." I never felt except in prison - and yet there, I wrote in prose. The poetry I authored as one does math. It was the syllabic music that attracted me, the power to compose with words. I wasn't looking to express any profound truth or to convey a thing about myself. I wanted to recreate the magic of the broken metric. I still recite aloud a poem until it SOUNDS right. I write upright - the legacy of prison. I stand and type on a laptop perched atop a cardboard box. It is ascetic and, to me, so is poetry. A purity. An abstraction. A string of symbols open to exegesis. It is the most sublime intellectual pursuit in a world that narrowed down and has become only my intellect.
