10 years ago:
Home to First --> 3.8 sec
100m --> 11.0 sec
200m --> 21.9 sec

It'd probably take me double that now. The things baseball (catching in particular) do with your body.
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.

Reading the golf thread I thought that I would dig up this old thread. I have a dislocated shoulder so I have to give up golf for the summer and all I'm doing is running.

I ran a big race on the weekend - Acura 10 mile in Toront0. Did it in 1hour 18. I'm doing at least 40m up to 50 miles per week and I'm running 2 marathons in Sept and Oct. I've found out that the more you run the more you want to run more. I have to get out every night now. :-°

That's not what I found out when I was running more frequently. I'd run, get done, and wonder why the hell do I do this to myself? :-b !+)

I hate running. Gave it up a while ago for biking. It's much easier on the joints, and I enjoy it a whole lot more.

I love running. Nothing comes close in terms of cardio for me. I do about 4-5 miles around Balboa Park and La Costa Ave, 4 times a week.

I average about 9 min/mi so I'm not running super fast or anything. I just like to get nice and sweaty especially after a long night of drinking.

I'm completly addicted to running at Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills. It's trail running, you can take your dog but she/he better be in good shape. I've had to practically drag mine out of the canyon a couple times. Aside from getting a fantastic workout, you can see the entire city of LA from Glendale to Santa Monica Beach from up top. Last weeks episode of Entourage featured a scene where some hot chick was running the canyon. Speaking of which, the fact that tons of pr0n stars and other assorted beauties go there regularly really helps you keep up the pace.

I agree 100% - you couldn't get me off my bike to run at this point, no matter how hard you tried! And, I like being able to cover 22-25 miles in the same time it takes to run 8-9 :-D


Yeah, I'll get to the point where I have no idea where I am sometimes, which is actually a lot of fun. I live in the northwest corner of Rhode Island, so oftentimes I'll make it into 3 states in one bike ride. B-)

Totally agree. There is nothing more effective in working off a hangover than a nice sweaty workout. As painful as it might be to get started, you feel like a million bucks when you're done... ;-D
