    Nice article – gives me hope of racing well even though I am not a pro athlete.

    Love reading this story, and others like it.  Not many like this guy anymore, but where there ever more than very few back in his day?  Seems like it is more prevalent among women's OT marathon qualifiers, though there are some obvious reasons for that.  Ijams's path is much closer to the norm, even for sub-elites and those just below them in the pecking order.

    That's a good story.  Thanks for sharing!  I can totally relate to being a single parent of 3 and trying to fit in running and working.  It's a good reminder that the only limits we have are the ones we put on ourselves.
