18.25 miles in 2:13:06 (7:18). Sunny, about 10 degrees with a serious wind chill up in the canyons where I ran today. Nice run, but tough.
Of course the big news in the running world is that Olympic marathon gold medalist Sammy Wanjiru has been arrested in Kenya for attempting to murder his wife and wounding the family's "security guard", a man named William Masinde. Seems that Sammy turned his unregistered AK 47 on the pair!
Now, you all know that we distance runners are gentle souls on the outside. We tend much more towards passive aggression rather than outright aggression.Seems to me that only a couple things - maybe just one thing - could cause Sammy to go off like this. No mention was made in the article as to whether Sammy "surprised" Mrs. Wanjiru.
The best quote of all came from the Letsrun.com message boards... "Sounds like Sammy is almost ready for the NFL. This is how you bring some street cred to distance running. Does Sammy own Pit Bulls by any chance?"
