    Many of us aren't sure what the hell point you are trying to make and no matter how we guess, it always seems to be something else. Which usually means a person is doing it on purpose.

                  I hope he rings the bell. I’m so happy for him right now. I’m sure he’s all smiles like his Strava photo.

                            Congrats Keen on the sub 3!

                             

                            Amazing run by Cal - he's averaged only 27 miles/week for the last 10 weeks, and just ran 3:02.  At 57 years old. Damn!

                              Congrats Keen!!! You really earned it. I can't believe I could be this happy about someone I don't know achieving something. I just got home from my run and I pushed my family out of my way to get to my phone and check this thread 😃.
