except for me. But alas, i really don't care as it gives me an excuse to take it easy. My hamstring is still sore so i am not pushing it as i had to really lay off today. I noticed Matias and Jason go flying by me like two men possessed. i do not think they even recognized me and my buddy Paul walking along the canal with canes in our hands. Us older guys use these times as an excuse to stop running and talk about deep life issues(one day some of you will get there)
Other than that, Jake and Chris ran real well at the Baltimore 5K and
Melissa really looks like she is rounding into peak form for the marathon. Soon she should be the best female runner in the area.
I will collect a bunch of singlets and bring them to the sat run next week and the race on sunday.
On one of my many side notes, this morning was the first time in my DC life, I believe, that I ever took the time to walk along the canal and stop to take notice of what an extraordinary ecosystem it is. With the early morning sun hitting the water and the crowds of runners and bikers, still not out it was nice just to walk along it and appreciate its presence and pay it some respect. I am glad it is part of the National Park System, as we all should be.
