Thank you all for your input last week regarding the Weekend Splits. For now they are here to stay, they may not get posted every weekend and they may occasionally get posted on Friday but they’re not dead yet.
The video above comes from TheDailyRunner.com. This is an excellent piece of race strategy, but usually at larger races there are people handing out drinks at the table as well. Remember that after you clear off the table it will be necessary to then slap the drinks out of the volunteer’s hands to complete the maneuver.
- Ali has not been able to run lately and posted some wonderfully funny observations about not running. If you’ve ever had to sit out due to an injury (you weakling) then you’ll be able to relate.
- J-Money has a running Arch Nemesis and I don’t. I like to think that I might be someone’s arch nemesis, it’s probably not the case but I like to think it. Either way I need an arch nemesis.
- Topher had a post this week comparing running to potty training. It seems like there should be so many good jokes that I could make here but I can’t think of a single one.
- Marcy tried thinking about sex while running to see if it helped alleviate the pain of running. Hmmm sex and running. That would be like combining my two favorite things, if running were one of my favorite things. Incidentally you can enjoy both running and sex without being good at either of them... or so I’m told. Fortunately I’m good at both, and humble too.
i'm a big fan of track runs because the repetition just pulls me along, but i know most people hate it. those fences around tracks are the worst; it's always a risky couple of seconds as i try to keep my "dangling participles" from becoming split infinitives (i may have just taken that too far for comfort.).
Random Non-Running Related Video of the Week
Have you ever seen a water balloon pop in super slow motion? It’s really cool. The water just kind stays in the shape of the balloon for a moment. Believe it or not there is a water balloon popping in this following video but if you’re like me (i.e. a guy) you won’t notice it the first few times you watch it. Trust me though, it’s there. The video gets old after the first twenty or thirty times you watch it and then all of a sudden: “Whoa! There is a water balloon in the video!”
