Home of the Textwall(tm).

At this time I don't plan on doing anything regular here. I just figured I may as well have a place to post general stuff that isn't appropriate to clutter other people's threads with. And yes, some might get long. Read at your leisure.

On a related note, I also happened to see this item today:

Here's the link to Nick's column, and the link he sourced for that NIH study.

You know, people from my running club were trying to get me into marathon running. It's too hardcore for me though.

I heard that most marathoners shit their pants during the course of a marathon.

They actually had a range of running events this past weekend, going all the way down to a 5K which a grandmother from my office did.

There's infinite portable bathrooms along the way usually, so I wouldn't see why this would be the case...

I've actually heard the crapping/pissing your pants thing as well (heard it to be true of long distance bikers as well).

The reason I was told was that once you've been running/biking for so long, you get mentally and physically set into the rhythm of the running at that constant pace. If you break that rhythm for a significant amount of time, it really throws you off and makes it really hard to start back up again.

If you really want to win, I don't see any other option.

It's a trap. Volunteering for work to get stuff isn't exactly free in my books.
