Your blog this week is kind of boring me. Please add some political or otherwise interesting tidbits. I suggest a viewpoint on the Boston marathon guy who got a letter from the principal for taking his kid out of school for the marathon, then posted a viral public reply, then was busted for faking his qualifier.

Yes, but it did give the public another fine opportunity to bash public schools.

Boston Qualifying marathons... qualifications? minimum requirements?

...more red tape. more cost. It was $100 or so when I ran it, now it's almost doubled. Buy why not, it sells out.
