It is amazing to me how fast the elite athletes are. Ryan Hall finished 4th (2:08:47) after running sub-5 minute miles for 26.1 miles. That is insane. That is basically a dead sprint. How can that not win? I can't even run one mile that fast.
Watching those fast runners is inspiring and depressing at the same time. Inspiring that makes you want to get out and run, and depressing that you will never run that fast.
Still, it was fun to watch, and congrats to all Boston finishers!
I ordered "The Stick" and received it yesterday. My wife said I could have made something like it, but I think she overestimates my handyman ability.
It is a pretty cool device, and I really wanted it to be able to roll out my calves a couple times a day. They get really tight.
I've been nursing a sore foot (again), this time it is the top of my foot and I think it was caused by running in the orthotics. So, I put those away temporarily and am giving my foot a week or so of rest to heal up. I had been running 3 times a week until this past weekend.
Also, I've been reading "Running for Mortals" which was a gift from my wife, and I've found some really good tips in their. I like that it breaks things down for the average guy (or girl) trying to run.
