    Marathon running, like golf,

    is a game for players, not winners. That is why Callaway sells golf clubs and Nike sells running shoes. But running is unique in that the world's best racers are on the same course, at the same time, as amateurs, who have as much chance of winning as your average weekend warrior...

    Immortal

    By pure chance I picked up Fear and Loathing in Los Vegas in the early 70s. I was immediately hooked. The dude was crazy but he could sure spin a good story. Suicide should never be celebrated, but in his case it seemed like an appropriate way to go.

    Ibogaine!
