    Nice job, Ken. Did you train by chasing women?

    More likely the opposite.

    Wrestlers have always been a hot commodity among women in Cleveland.

    Yeah, even though those Catholic boys do start too late.

    I've dated ladies who attended the so-called "sister schools" (a term that has gone by the wayside)--one was my senior prom date--and they would tell me how they considered the boys, at their affiliated schools, a particular challenge.

    Congrats, Ken. When I read of your accomplishment, I put my feet up and had a cold one in recognition of your hard work!

    To celebrate I just went to the Dentist and got a root canal!! I've been putting it off, and since I took today and tomorrow off, I figured what the hell. Bring on the pain!!!!

    Steve my max for the weeks were usually between 50-60 miles. Maybe I should move to Colorado and train in the Mtns like Steve Jr did. Or just sack up and tweak my training so I can take off two frickin minutes.

    Thanks everyone for the congrats.

    No need to go to the mountains, I don't think. You're doing just fine. Find some local road running groups and train in the Metroparks. Your completed marathon, and especially your time, fits you right in. I think you mentioned you've done some running in the park. 60 miles sounds just fine to me. Milage can be overdone. Even without changing anything, I think you cut the necessary minutes next time.

    If I have gleaned anything from my son is that there is no one right way to do it. Find what's comfortable for you and have some fun.

    Even though my son stopped serious competition in 2004, when he was home this past Christmas, he went out early every morning for a quick 5 mile jaunt on these city streets that he knows so well. A foot of snow on the ground gave him no pause. A very healthy habit.

    BTW, I was trying to remember the "sister" schools of the various Catholic high schools.

    St. Edward was St. Augustine (now closed).
    Padua was Nazareth (now closed).
    St. Ignatius was Magnificat, I think.
    St. Joes was Villa Angela (which are now combined together, of course).

    I never knew who Benedictine, Cathedral Latin, and Holy Name had as sister schools (or if they had them).
