Jim Sorenson, Focus-N-Fly member and the fastest over-40 1500 meter runner in the history of planet earth, just opened his 2009 season with a convincing win at the prestigious Hartshorne Memorial Mile at Cornell in Ithaca, NY.

….and I quote from the Sports Basement event “I’ve been just sticking to my pace chart……”

Jack Daniels is a man so unlike the bottle that I cannot begin to describe the differences.  However, here’s an attempt to convey an unexpected lesson from Jack’s example at the Focus-N-Fly 2.0 Event:

It has been a big week!  It culminated with FnF’s 2.0 Event and Jack Daniels talk last night but it started with a short run with ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes.  Here’s a short post and picture:

A year ago we lost a great friend, husband, son, brother, and competitor in Central Park. This weekend in NYC there will be several activities in his honor including a park bench dedication and a large group of Notre Dame Alumni running the race.

My heart goes out to his wife Alicia, parents, siblings and close friends. He is gone from our sight but very much present in spirit.

The Chicago Marathon has a dilemma on its hands that could have long lasting implications.

Wesley Korir’s time was the 4th fastest automatically timed finish of the day on Sunday. Chicago will not pay him the 4th place finisher’s purse of $15K based on the IAAF rules that require all elite runners to start with the elite race.

On one hand I want to scream at the Chicago Marathon to show Mr. Korir the money.

On the other hand the 4th place finisher has an argument in that Korir did not have to compete with the best runners nor did he follow the rules of competition.

Just a quick post to let you know that I will officially go out on a limb and say that Haille G. is the best runner of our time and quite possible all-time. Gebreselassie broke the World Record in the Marathon yesterday and became the first person to average 4:43/Mile for 26.2 consecutive miles.

This is crazy fast and my hat’s off to Haille who has run another race that I couldn’t even imagine.

He is simply awesome.
