It's too bad that the heat is going to bollocks up the runners. Despite my general disdain for spectator sports, I harbor a certain soft spot for runners and marathons. Maybe it's beacuse at various points in my life I have done a little running. And doctors and physical therapists always tell me I am built like a runner. If I ever quit smoking, I suppose I may take it up again. My body's in OK shape for it, but it's my lungs that are sort of the problem.

Or maybe because it's not really a "team" sport, but rather an individual thing. I don't really like the idea of "teams" (which is why I'm a lousy Socialist). It also seems to be a pretty gender-neutral sport, there seem to be just as many female runners as there are males...
