My friend called me the other day to say her husband saw me flying down the Marina State Park bike path with my coach following me closely on his bike. I said I was running marathon pace, about 5 minutes 30 seconds per mile, and it was one of my last workouts before starting to taper for the big day. Years ago, I used to have people drive by and say, “Do you know there is a strange man following you?” I even had a cop stop Sev one time while I was doing road workout to make sure he was not stalking me. Though I am tempted to say. “I’ve never seen the guy before” just to add some excitement to our day, I have resisted so far. In fact, we have been such a fixture lately, that the cops wave or stop to ask how training is going.
