After the hockey season is over, I'm going to start training for a 10K.  Been doing that the last 3 years, find it does me good, joints and heart.  I'm never going to beat that 4 miles in 26 minutes Bert mentions above.  That's a fast pace.  I'm more in the 8.5 minutes/mile clip.  Legs too short i guess  :D :D

   I commend all of you runners out there. Pretty much quit after left USMC. When I was stationed at Parris Island I once entered a super 500 there where I ran 500 miles in 90 days in =/+ 3 mile increments. Got a T-shirt and a certificate. (Wouldn't do that again). Furthest I ever ran was 15 miles a time or two. Fastest was about 20:18 for 3 miles. Never was a real fast runner.

   Once ran a 10K at MCLB Albany Ga and my JAG lawyer buddy was sniping at me from behind and I told him if going to complain had to do it in front so he paced me last mile. We sprinted to the end and I beat him to the finish by one step. After which I stopped running and he trotted to the table and picked up the number ahead of me so they listed us as the same finish time but him ahead of me. (And you wonder why people hate lawyers!)

   I ran a 7.7 mile bridge run in Beaufort SC and a real attractive young lady passed me at the 2 mile mark. I couldn't allow that so passed her back then at  the 3 mile mark she passed me again. I enjoyed the view for several miles thinking at end I'd just sprint past her. At about the 6 mile mark she kicked it in gear and I haven't seen her since. She'd probably already showered and changed when I got to the finish line. It was a humbling experience.

   Those days are long gone and now only time I run is when I mis-gage cutting a big tree.

Like WVSawmiller, I( was in great shape, and could run all day when I got out of the USMC. Stayed that way for a while, then fell into the work-a-day routine . A few knee injuries, and surgeries ,and forty years later, I can't run out of sight in three days!!!  Ok tho, I'll still get there!!      8) 8) 8)    Andy
