Do I write my congressman?

Yes

Do I tweet our President?

Clearly useless.

Eta:  also, vote out all the politicians beholden to the NRA, and not to the safety of your kids.

I just found out that one of my high school classmates is the mother of one of the kids killed in Florida yesterday.

Oh man....I am so sorry.

This is all so insane to me, I donít know where to begin. How many more times?

Do I write my congressman?
Do I tweet our President?

I am terrified for my kids to get To the age where they have to go to school.

How many more times? Whatís it going to take to make a change?

Yeah!
I think the 24hr Championships in Italy are on a track  :-o
During the NJ Marathon in 2015, I started chatting with some dude and he mentioned that he had recently ran the 24hr race. I asked him how many miles he wound up with and he said 148!!!
That race was 2wks before that Matathon and he was pacing the 3:40 group like no big deal!

As for another crazy record, two of my running buddies (Wai Law and Byron Lane) are both in the Guinness Top 10 for the 48 hour treadmill WR. 167 and 160.
They both crushed their PRs last year.

Jimmy Kimmel last nigh

"Your party voted to repeal the mandates on coverage for mental health," Kimmel said. "So I agree, this is a mental illness issue because if you don't think we need to do something about it, you are obviously mentally ill."

Ultramarathon Man: Dean Karnazes

Nice, got it next on tap.

What's up with the middle of the night runs?!?! 3, 4 am!?! Insane!

Sweet! Great, engaging, funny read. Definitely piqued my interest in distance running.

Yeah, Iíve been working on mental strength recently.
3AM long runs before work and endless loops.
The time is just more of a commitment thing.
Alarm goes off and I can either go run long in the rain or stay in a cozy bed for a few more hours.
The loops pass by my house every mile, which gives me the option to quit with every loop, so youíre sticking to your commitment while building mental strength.
Plus, your mind starts getting a little weird while running loops, so itís kinda cool.
I might hop into a 50K in 2 weeks which is a 5K Loop ten times, so Iím just laying down a base if I do decide to race it.

Beast mode!

That reminds me of a story in Scott Jurek's book, about how he was doing this 24 hour race, basically it's whoever can run the most miles in that time period, and it was loops as well, maybe 1 mile?, maybe 3? I can't remember. But he talked about how he didn't listen to music for the first 8 hours, to try and just see how long he could go before having to go to that as a distraction because of how mind numbing the endless loops become and mentally how challenging it can be. But as the hours passed, he began to see the music as a horizon off in the distance of his mind that he wanted to reach...Anyhow, 50K, and loops is sick. Hope you get a chance to do it.
