Maybe it's true ('once a marathoner, always a marathoner') but I never really was one (I'm just a triathlete who decided to play with the 'big guys') even though I think I have the 'soul' of a runner (it's a funny thing: you can 'do' a sport, get into the regimen, work at it, enjoy it, maybe even be successful, but running is different. If you are a runner, nothing can disrupt your routine. You can be in anywhere in the world, you just pick it up, for a few minutes, for a few hours, and run. Runners are, I like to believe, a peaceful lot. There is a reporter in my part of the world who is regularly sent to the hottest places in the world, at the most crucial and dramatic times, he reports back, as a good journalist would, then tell us about his jog in Palestine, in Sarajevo, in Beiruth, in New York, and everything becomes clear).
Run happy, people say? Run in peace is also an option... Boston is just a distraction, really.
