Awesome movie, ultrarunning buddy Chris Wedge turned me on to it. Denzel, Scott Glen, among others star in this "Urban Crime Drama." Well, hello Mr. Fancy Pants, it's got it's own genre! Wedge uses the powerful Denzel to rookie narc cop "What are gonna be? You gonna be a Wolf or you gonna be a Sheep?" lecture, to get him going when he's feeling a little wimpy. Well, Chris Wedge represented for Florida at Western States in 07 (25:03 thank you!), so he's no Sheep!
there was a scene in today's Clermont run that reminded me of this ditty from Training Day:
What in the heck does this have to do with running ultra's? Oh, let me share!
As the lovely Tracy Cook and I were running "The Loop" (it's a 10 mile clay and dirt road with some boss hills, we need to make this a bi-weekly part of our training!) I see this little critter crossing the road.
Tracy and I finish our 10 mile loop. We get our bottle refilled, and I down a coffee cooler and BAM! we're back at it. We go back by, and I see my little friend has made it about 1/2 way across the road in only 1:36 minutes. No, not down the road, across, regular width road. Milli (or Mr. Pede), he aint real fast, but I'm sure he's made it across by now. What's the point?
You figure that out, and you've solved the mystery of ultrarunning!
