I suppose nobody ever said Running was supposed to be fun or easy. Just make reference to Wilson's overly stated comments about "RUNNING NOT BEING A JOKE AND THAT IT IS VERY SERIOUS BUSINESS" I know we all used to make fun of this but it is clear there is merit in it.
Jake and Dave, your assignment is to take Laura and Melissa on much deserved vacations somewhere where running is not allowed. Massages, Scuba diving and good tropical drinks, only:(
Also, did anyone notice that super marathoner Dane ran Steamtown in 2:58! thats great---Good job Dane.
As for the Chicago Women's finish, why didn't anyone tell the leader to huff it with a 1/4 mile to go? Thats totally bizarre______M
