Re: Slop in the Wind

"Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest. If you're going to while away the years, it's far better to live them with clear goals and fully alive then in a fog, and I believe running helps you to do that. Exerting yourself to the fullest within your individual limits: that's the essence of running, and a metaphor for life — and for me, for writing as whole." ~ Haruki Murakami

"A year from now, you won't even be able to walk a hundred meters." ~ Mario in 100 Meters

I watched a movie on Netflix called 100 Meters. The movie is about Ramón who is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and then decides to train for an Iron Man triathlon. The movie is based on a true story. It's a dramatic, inspiring, and motivational movie. The movie is in Spanish with English subtitles. Netflix rates the movie five of five stars.

"Even when you run a slower than expected time, you succeed in any marathon when you finish." ~ Hal Higdon

Running log (past week)

Sunday: 3.38 miles (9:04); ran in the park, raining, 49° F, 100% humidity.

Monday: 3.31 miles (8:58); ran in the park, cloudy, 63° F, 81% humidity.

Tuesday: 3.36 miles (9:35); ran in the park, sunny, 76° F, 55% humidity.

Wednesday: no running

Thursday: no running

Friday: no running

Saturday: Nashville Rock 'n' Roll half-marathon 13.1 miles (10:44); partly cloudy, 75° F, 79% humidity. Hills, heat, humidity, and crowded. I heard on the news there were over 30,000 runners in this race, and in the 18 year history of this race today's was the hottest and most humid. It was about 75° F when I started, and in the 80s by the time I finished. I'm happy I was not one of those runners who required medical attention. My official chip time 2:20:29.

There were a lot of spectators holding up signs to cheer and encourage the runners. My favorite was one that had a caricature of President Trump. To the side it read, "I thought it would be easier." That made me laugh.
