The physiology of the 800. Metric distances for classic events still piss me off. 440, 880, mile and deuce is how it should go, then 5k, 10k, 13.1 and 26.2.

The only Boilermaker you regret is the one you don't run.

This one was close at points, though. Undertrained,is one thing, but this was so hot it occurred to me that this was kind of risky behavior. Lots of water, and ice, and an orange popsicle, and I got through it.

Standing around at the Boilermaker someone asked me if the Keith Richards Athletic Club is for real. I'm not sure what "for real" means, but I told the guy that the KRAC colors have appeared in marathons in four states, and on two continents. A little research reveals that KRAC affiliated athletes have run in at least six of the largest road races in the world. So yeah, I guess we're for real.

The only bad Boilermaker is the Boilermaker you don't run.

Greens Morelli and Hats with the meat sauce for dinner. 13,000 starters. Seriously, every year I think it can't get more crowded, and every year it somehow manages to. Hot. This is the first  time I can recall feeling nauseous for the first mile, but I pretty much pulled it together after that. Saw a deer running on the golf course at around Mile 3. The top of the golf course hill is one of the best things I see every summer, and the downhill after that is as good a feeling as I know. The Utica Zoo made a good showing, but I wish they'd get another llama. Orange popsicle this year. Rounding the corner for the last mile, a band with, I'd guess, over a dozen drum kits, banging away-- big motivator, but I wonder where they rehearsed? Full pipe band at Hanna Park, right when I needed them.

Every year it's my favorite part of the summer.

I just want to say, right now, that theses Mets are making me glad.
