Don't get me wrong; Llove these people. There is a group whose members call themselves Certified Running Nuts. I spoke to some of them who run 120 races a year; that's roughly $3,000 annually just on registration fees. I know some people run up a summer bar tab in the same amount; it just depends on how you choose to spend disposable income. 60 away - I want 64-year-old open-water distance swimmer Diana Nyad to go away now because I don't think there is any question she is all the way nuts. Go to Broad and Chunk in North Philly, sit on a stoop and start going on about swimming from Cuba and see who gives a row houserat about it. Some- day someone else will make that swim and then swim back while someone else will back- stroke across with a lab puppy riding on his or her chest. Grand Mom Rose: "No mat- terwhat feat you accomplish, there will soon be atrump card played by someone else." Outwork - I know for a fact that at every level of corn- petitive athletics - I'm talking here about athletes on teams, not over-the-top lifters and treadmill trekkers - it is pos- sible to outwork teammates to win playing time. And that's because most athletes talk a better workout game than train hard for the season. And the gains made through lifting and running are quickly lost in some programs where stand- ing around in practice takes up half the time - you know, the getting-reps-then-rest model. You know, if the people with the most talent also worked the hardest, the rest of us wouldn't have a chance, Outhustle - In soccer it's the dreaded 50/50 ball; in basketball it's the loose ball and in lacrosse it's the ground ball. Football has the fumble and tipped ball; in baseball it's the sinking liner or ball in the hole. I could go on, but I'm losing interest in myself.
