    May the Road Rise to Meet Them

    Songs for the runners, songs for the year-long struggles and stories, songs for the city.   If you can even post, that should make your day (!)

    Send out a song.

    Even the most cynical people (and there are plenty of them), will be taken by surprise today.   What a day.  BTW, this is the last year the legendary Team Hoyt, father Dick and son Rick, will be running, after a 32-year historic running streak.   I just read that Team Hoyt will continue, as there are people in the wings, one of whom will run with Rick in his speed-chair next year.   So awesome.
