Horse listed as main course thanks to advertising error
AKRON, Mich. -- Kristen DeGroat just wanted to sell her horse to another equestrian, but her ad ended up under "Good Things to Eat" in the classified sections of two newspapers.
The ads attracted a lot of interest. About a third of the 60 or so calls she received were from people looking for horse meat.

Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
I hammered down the trail, passing rocks and trees like they were standing still.

I don't like to brag, but this is my second day in a row running 5 miles. Hey -- what's that sound? I hear music....
I AM IRON MAN... Wait, I'm not so sure I like the rest of the lyrics.
Have fun in Cuba, Comrade Tall.

Chumbawamba: I get knocked down But I get up again You're never going to keep me down
Erika – re your comment on the 40/40 thread – I’m not doing back-to-back 20-milers. They’re 2 weeks apart. I decided to go for it, re the 2 extra marathons, so I figured I better throw in a couple extra 20s instead of 18s. If I train carefully, get lots of rest, and limit the speedwork (where injury happens most often), I think it will be okay.
