A haiku from my little jaunt tonight:

 

Late night solo run

Only hear footsteps, breathing

My nocturnal bliss

 

 

Happy Easter, y'all.

Healing rain is coming down
It's coming nearer to this old town
Rich and poor, weak and strong
It's bringing mercy, it won't be long 

 

 

I just got a call telling me that Phillip Parker, the owner of the overall Alabama state 50-mile record of 5:43:32 that has stood for over 26 years, passed away this morning after a sudden heart attack.  From what I understand, Phillip ran his first ultra (the Mississippi 50) on a whim while on a fishing trip... and won it.  He went on to blaze some pretty impressive times on the ultra scene well before it was the "cool" thing to do.  I didn't know Phillip very well, but I was lucky enough to have met and talked with him a fair amount during and after the Delano Day a few weeks ago (he went 43 miles at age 72!), and he struck me as being a very down-to-earth, humble, and all around good guy who always had a smile on his face.  The ultra world loses yet another of its legends, and a true champion of the sport by every definition of the word.  If you are of the praying type, I know his family could use some.

Ran the World Catfish Festival 5k that was actually a 5.5k (3.4 miles).  The race director told me that it might be a bit long when I registered, but when I saw my time, which was a little slower than it felt like I ran (had it been a true 5k), I decided that the distance might be worth checking, so my Industrious Grandfather (Inimitable Mother's father) and I mapped out the course on the computer, calculating it to be 5.5k.  I ran the calculation, and my 18:16 for 5.5k converts to 16:36 for 5k.  In any case, it was a fun race, and quite a few people who live along the course told me that they saw me run by the next day in church.  

(and, of course, for those of you with the burning question in your hearts:  yes, i did click my heels at the finish...)
