Those Cheatin' Hearts: Why do they do it?
Thursday, May 1 was a big day for John and Suzanne Murphy from Cypress, California. They were front page news in the Boston Globe, and a lead item on the local sportscast on the evening news. Not bad for a pair of little known marathoners. We should say alleged marathoners, since there is no proof either ever went the full 26.2 mile distance.

Comparison Sheet: A 10 mile race in the UK vs. a 10 mile race in USA
Comparing a race in England to a race in the United States. An ocean apart, but many similarities.

Impression of Boston 101
Of the previous 100 Boston Marathons, the one most closely resembling the 101st edition, not surprisingly, was the 99th Boston in 1995. After all of the anticipation of the 1996 100th anniversary race, the event has now settled back into its comfortable position as America's most prestigious and historic marathon, rather than a huge mega-event. Now that the dust has settled, lets take a look at what the Boston Marathon has really become in the late 1990s.

London Calling: Road Running the Old Fashioned Way in the Queen's
So it was, on a recent trip to England, that I had the opportunity to immerse myself a bit in the British running scene, primarily by running a local ten mile road race, then a few days later meeting up and running with a local club, the Blackheath Harriers. For an American schooled in the ways of running in the USA, it was an interesting and educational experience.

In late July of 1996, millions of Americans anxiously sat in their living rooms, eagerly awaiting one of the most anticipated sporting events of the entire year. The build-up was dramatic; tension hung heavily in the air. In a shade over 19 seconds, it was all over -- Michael Johnson had completed his improbable double in world record time, turning back a star-studded field in the Olympic 200 meter final.
