- stuff ’round the mill
“Remember the feeling you get from a good run is far better than the feeling you get from sitting around wishing you were running.”
This time of year here in the northeast USA the weather gives us plenty of opportunity, plenty of excuses, to skip training. Don’t just think about your training run, GET OUT AND DO IT! Ice cream tastes MUCH better after a great training run!
TWO RUNNERS WORLD ARTICLE:
I’ve run with Bernd Heinrich author of “Born to Run” a number of times at the Lake Waramaug Ultra’s. If you read this I suspect many of y’all will be trying cranberry juice very soon.
During the 118 year span of the Boston Marathon there have been many changes. Today the marathon is held on “Patriot’s Day” a holiday unique to the New England area. I suspect most all the changes made with the runners in mind have been for the good of the event. I believe runners would prefer having the military ruck marchers with them. I’ve always found the presence and enthusiasm of our military at and during the marathon to be a primary part of what made the Boston Marathon exceptional! This change REALLY STINKS!
MILITARY CAN’T MARCH AT BOSTON THIS YEAR
THIS WEEK & WEEKEND:
Sunday, March 9, 2014: 12:00 Midnight forward to 1:00 AM
There will be plenty of training this weekend at the mill. Don’t forget the time change (Ray)!
RSR also has a bunch of excellent training runs happening.
