    Haha if only ....  We are actually taking the stairs down not climbing up( as I claimed in my post above) so effort wise better but still breaks the race effort rhythm significantly.

     

    That makes up for that missing distance.  Maybe now it's a 10K equivalent?

      well....in that case, it's clearly now a cheater course.

      Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

       

      And...if you want a running Instagram where all the pictures are of cats, I've got you covered.

              Of course you don't - it will be a great excuse for you afterwards (running unfamiliar course I mean)

                Guilty on everything. He is in jail. Last I'll mention it.

                 

                Is that all you’ve got to say about the verdict?

                 

                So this ex police officer is going spend the rest of his life on jail?  He came across as someone who had little emoticon and should never have been a police officer in the first place.

                 

                But he is the bad guy and Floyd is the good guy.  Welcome to 2021.

                  I registered as well. Noticed a talk on Strava where rlk and another ex forumite were discussing the 2018 times applying. Soudnds liek rlk will apply and see how it goes. I'm not holding my breath to get in and I could buy a plane ticket for under $400 right now to get there for the race weekend. Should be fun watching prices go up after results are posted. I need to train more to get into shape for CIM.

                  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.

                    If RLK is running Boston then RLK needs to get her rear back on this thread.

                      She will definitely not come back - there is no sub 3:20 thread anymore. Sub 3 is just too much pressure for her

                        Oh I have lots of thoughts, I'm just not going to go on about it in this thread. I work with the homeless everyday in the twin cities. I deal with the most marginalized people in our state daily. I have lots of thoughts about the police in our area.

                          Yeah and so have I.  Nice of you to say your little bit in a running forum and then back off when confronted. 😂

                              dps is right.  The nuances in the case would take hundreds of pages to unpack.  Regardless of the trial, it is weird that Floyd is being deified given his background.
