No slow and steady here

After a long run today, I made it back to to the parking lot feeling good and strong. As I was stretching, a couple ran by me and I heard the man tell his partner their strategy:  “We’re going to start slow, then in the middle we are going to run slow, and at the end we are going to keep running slow.” She and I both laughed. I like it, but too bad I can’t afford to run slow right now and take in all the scenery. With one of the deepest women’s marathon fields ever assembled for January's Olympic Trials, slow and steady will not win the race.
