Oldie-but-goodie. In 3 parts. About Ian Dobson. ...Loved that bit about his time on the PCT. 14 days ago, Don was at that spot where Ian quit. Ian jumped into Don's first race at Hayward Field, an all comers combo 3000/5000. (He won.) Now divorced from Julia, he leads a free and weekly track workout in Eugene. 60-80 runners show up -kids, slugs, swifts, et al.

Julia Lucas on the memorable race at the 2012 Olympic Trials. One of the favorites, she took off early because she lacked a killer finish. And rigged in the stretch. Read. We were there along with other Santa Claritians. ...Race results. You'll notice Lauren Fleshman was last. She had been running great, and then ran a marathon and got injured. Worked like hell on the comeback, swimming and Ellipitigo, and got into the prelims. Raced her heart out and qualified for the final.

Runner's World: How Alysia Montaño Won a National Title Six Months After Giving Birth
Flashback. Just stumbled across Pump Up The Volume, on the Ovations channel, filmed on the Saugus High School campus c. 1990 (in the movie it's called Hubert H. Humphrey High School, located in Arizona). Primarily intended for a high school audience, it wasn't a profitable venture. Kinda stupid, as a matter of fact. Still fun to see, especially because it showed my old neighborhood, the area, and the model six house exactly like the one I lived in at 22114 Pamplico, though in the movie it shows the angst-ridden teen hero going down to his cave in the basement, and there were no basements in that tract. Are there any basements in Saugus?

3. We're all in this together. We all need to pay back. Help however you can.
