I have lots to say about today's Olympic Trial Marathon, for it was the most fun I've had in years. I don't have the time to tell ya'll about this race just now, for I'm resting and relaxing with the family.
Tomorrow, I run. Meb says you should always have a strategy. Ryan Hall said that his trials' strategy was to have no strategy. Therefore, I'm going to have a strategy and no strategy – a runner's metaphorical cake 'n eat it too. I will run 7:40s for three miles. If I "feel it," then I shall "pump up the kicks" and let the Rabid roar. If I don't feel it, I shall chill and meet some friends.
With that, I leave you with my favorite photos of the day (kind of... I got some great ones of the leaders – to show you later – oh, and Amy Hastings is my new favorite!)
The Storage Hopefuls: Either I'm way good at photoshop, or there's two. Photos taken at mile 25ish. They dress the same, they step the same, they swing the same. Perhaps their mama made them wear different colored laces to tell them apart? Perhaps.
