Are there any other tools into running here? I looked for a thread with this but couldn't find one (except for the 2007 Boston Marathon). I just started running a couple of years ago, and I really like it. I just ran as part of a relay team today in Burlington VT's Keybank Marathon. 6.5 miles, with a 1/2 mile hillclimb kicker at the end. I ran a 1/2 marathon in early April but my training has fallen off since then, so my race time today was mediocre. Glad to do the run, though, I always am afterwards. Except for the sore nips. Running is for cowards, but if you're going to be a coward, be a good coward and get away. That way you won't have to urinate on yourself and hope the disgust overwhelms your predator and then you can make your escape.
