1. Castor Semenya is a witch!
2. Paul Revere once held the American record for the mile in 5:03
3. A trek across the Louisiana Territory would provide a good base!
I learned that . . .
I finally learned that I am perceived as old. I am not even 75 years old yet!
Arm warmers are for pussies and yuppies and those that are not real runners. So that means their are elites that are pussies and yuppies and not real runners.

that the brojos have more handles than i do.
I learned about quite a lot of pro news. Solinsky's 10000 and his 5000s, Lagat's American record, Wheating's badass 1500s, and Webb's comeback. Letsrun is truly a great resource.
Oh, you meant from the boards? Well,

And that Webb is back. But I already knew that when he moved out here to Portland.
i learned that Stanford learned nothing from last year.
I learned that obese people are lazy, disrespectful fat pigs that probably dump all the food they buy into a pig trough for consumption. I also learned that they always ride in motorized carts even though they could walk because they're lazy. I also learned that they sometimes puke up whatever they have eaten so they can eat it again!

i learned that being in the same room as some of my all-time athlete-heroes, can be only a mouse-click away. a real treat.

i learned that i still have a lot of learning to do.
happy new year.

Lots of stuff about running and what to do/not to do to avoid being considered destined for hobby-joggerville.
Lots of stuff about posters' financial, family, social, and other problems--and the solutions presented to these problems some of which included drinking heavily
How to make a home x-ray
What I haven't learned yet is whether Rojo ever got a horse.
I learned that 'you sir, are a moron' carries as much weight here as a well thought out observation or opinion.
