I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.

Chuck Engle ran 10+ marathons last year with a stress fracture.
He won many of them.
Of course, the Monkey beat the Junkie.

Sure, I might give up easily, but you wouldn't be able to tell me from any other peasant on the side of the road when your vehicles tires get blown off by the land mines.
hey, no offense, blaine, but i think that comment was in poor taste. i appreciate all your comments about running and training and all, but there are a lot of people here w/ folks in the service (or who are in the service themselves) who don't at IEDs & land mines.
i don't THINK i've ever addressed you before, and i don't remember the comment to which you refer-- but i apologize, too, blaine, if i've bugged you! i didn't realize.
but back to topic! sorry about the digression.
