im glad he reminds us how much of a stud he is run on steve
Wow, my very own thread, and that's all you could come up with? SHEESH!
Yeah, what up with the Rocket Man? I wouldn't mind going to see you run in Boston Steve. When is the Marathon? April or March?
The Boston Marathon is run on Patriots Day.
It is a tradition. The Red Sox usually play an early afternoon home game that day as well.
It's called Patriots Day but you will not find Tom Brady, Randy Moss or Wes Welker anywhere nearby.
115TH BOSTON MARATHON Monday, April 18, 2011
I would like to run that as well but i am certain I will not qualify for it in my first marathon.
You don't have to run the whole thing--just do what Rosie Ruiz did.
We should all be proud the Rocket Man is showing some improvement with his sentence structure.
Now if we could just get him to focus on punctuation.
I'm glad he reminds us of how much of a stud he is. Run on Steve.
You go Rocket! We know you can do it!
April 18th, 2011, I'll see you there.
LOL, good one, trick.
Helen, if you do go, it starts in Hopkinton and ends up in Boston. The toughest part of the course is Heartbreak Hill, which I believe is mile 19 or 20.
Which would be the best time to get the worst picture of me. Looks like I'll have to drive several hours north to get in some substantial hill training.
Why don't you run stairs at a local football stadium?
LOL, I'd have to run them for 6 hrs a day. I run the bridges here in town. We have several tall bridges, but running long hills will be what works best, compared to the real thing.
I found you a hill...go ahead waste your heartbeats
Not what my father says. He says up to mile 15 is the hardest, the rest is just repetition and is easy (relatively) even with the hill.
Having never run it I am basing my opinion on what I have heard so I will take your Dad's word for it.
I'm thinking the first hundred yards would be hard and the rest impossible. Can't imagine how anyone could run 26 miles.
Just think about how many miles you "walk" at a brisk pace daily, weekly, yearly and to date. It's not impossible.
The marathon path cuts through several routes that I cover...it's always a hell day because of road-blockages etc. and most of the bid-driver's take the day off.
The litter of plastic water bottles and cups is a sight to see at at 1600, but it's all gone the next day!
At about 1500, most of the roads closures are open, and there is often a police escort for the runners not yet finished...
Every center should have a STUG
