More on Ed Whitlock. I'm still loving his comment about not giving advice. Also about the shoes. Please don't tell me I must get some X shoes. There was a time in SCV when I was hounded because I wouldn't get HOKA shoes, which looked stupid and unstable, an opinion I still hold. Not once has anyone in Eugene told me to get any particular shoes, though my coach suggested I run in flats while doing intervals on the track. And I'm OK with that. Makes sense.

If you like horse porn... American Pharoah. It starts off with the elaborate assignation resulting in a Triple Crown winner. Of course we don't give a damn about horse racing, but, trust me, you're missing out on two good reads, American Pharoah and, even better, Seabisquit. Human and equine racers, coaches and trainers are similar.

Alex Hutchinson: What Is Fatigue? Invariably for Don, and, well, perhaps you too, we have more to give. Otherwise we would be be keeled over, flopping just past the finish, breathless like dying fish. ...Ya gotta love cross country because the spectating is so close, you can look into their eyes, gauge what's in their mind, what they might have left. ...Does Coach Paragas still yell to Jack or Jill, "You gotta go now"? Sometimes it works, the runner's eyes pop open, and the pace picks up, lasting even to a yard beyond the finish. ...How often are your thoughts about how you look? I'll never forget the finish at a Foothill xc race. One girl, in the final 100 yards, sees mom and starts to cry. Mom rushes over to comfort just beyond the finish. Still her baby. ...Hey, momma, let your babies grow up... Don's initial three thoughts at the finish in the last race. 1. Ooh, geez, I coulda, shoulda gone faster. 2. Where's my wife? 3. (Seeing Bailey Miller, on the job doing video) Should I go over and say hello?

Jack Arnold writes: They took out one of the back hills just before the end of the second mile. That hill became too dangerous after rain damage from the winter. Runners go straight instead of left. It's the same distance but a little faster.
