“Training was a rite of purification; from it came speed, strength. Racing was a rite of death; from it came knowledge. Such rites demand, if they are to be meaningful at all, a certain amount of time spent precisely on the Red Line, where you can lean over the manicured putting green at the edge of the precipice and see exactly nothing.”
― John L. Parker Jr., Once a Runner
Seeded 26th out of 84 runners in tonight's Swarthmore Track Meet in the Mens 5000m. Time entered is 14:45. A lot of people lie in this meet and I probably should have put 14:40. But I should be in the first heat. Race is scheduled to start at 10:20 pm(last event). It's going to probably rain too.
