”As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks—on your body or on your heart—are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.” ~ Anthony Bourdain

Re: Slop in the Wind

”Is it not remarkable? Simple oil of cloves, and how amazing the results. Life can be that simple: relief—discomfort. Now which of these I next apply? That decision is in your hands. So... take your time... and tell me... is it safe?” ~ Dr. Christian Szell in Marathon Man

I watched a movie on Hulu called Marathon Man. This is an old movie from 1976 that I’d heard about for years but had never seen. The most well known part of the movie involves a Nazi war criminal torturing Dustin Hoffman with dental instruments. The main character, Babe, played by Dustin Hoffman is a runner and a graduate student. His brother is a government agent who is pursuing Dr. Szell a former Nazi dentist. Dr. Szell captures and tortures Babe believing he has information regarding a large cache of diamonds that had been stolen from Jews killed at Auschwitz.

Marathon Man is a suspenseful thriller. Babe is a runner, he talks about marathons and he has to run to escape his captors, but the movie has very little to do with running. I found the plot somewhat difficult to follow leaving many unanswered questions; however, I enjoyed the movie even though it wasn’t quite what I had expected.

Re: Slop in the Wind

”It's been a long journey, I've been trying to get this record for eight years, and I was finally successful. It just took me three tries to do it. It's a very special time right now—definitely a stamp on my career. With failure comes greater success, I knew I could do it if everything fell into place, so I just wanted one more crack at it.” ~ Karl Meltzer

I watched a documentary on Netflix called Made to Be Broken. It’s about Karl Meltzer running the Appalachian Trail. He covered 2,190 miles in 45 days, 22 hours, and 38 minutes setting a new record. It’s an interesting documentary.

Thanks HeretoApologize. You’re right, ultrarunners like Karl Meltzer are incredible. He’s 48 years old and covered forty-plus miles daily for 46 days running on very rough terrain up and down mountain trails. It seems impossible, but he did it. It’s an amazing accomplishment for both him and his support crew.

Re: Slop in the Wind

”I knew if I quit, nobody would ever believe that women had the capability to run 26-plus miles. If I quit, everybody would say it was a publicity stunt. If I quit, it would set women’s sports back, way back, instead of forward. If I quit, I’d never run Boston. If I quit, Jock Semple and all those like him would win. My fear and humiliation turned to anger.” ~ Kathrine Switzer
