I have never been thin by running standards.  If I'm in the low 170s for 5' 10″ I am doing good.  When I PR'd at Boston in 2002 I did get below 165.  I got down to 158 once and ran terrible.  I like to be around the 172 range, but have run good ultras at 180.  It was never a real big deal to me if I was running a lot.  I have to run to my ideal weight, trying to diet never had a good effect.  A lot of it has to do with my natural big hips and thighs.
