Dibaba_TiruneshM-RAK17-thumb-500x750-34515.jpgHere's something you might not have considered. Some people actually love their jobs. I am one of those rare findings. I love my job. I write about athletes and events around the world. I love the traveling, meeting new people, enjoying the sport of athletics and seeing my friends year after year.

One of my favorites is Tirunesh Dibaba. I have watched Tirunesh since 2003 and have seen all of her Olympic and World Championship medals. Her level of competitiveness, her ferocity in her finishes are mind boggling. Watching her run in Boston for the NB Indoor GP and setting world records and bests were fascinating.

LONDON — For the first time, more than 40,000 runners completed the Virgin Money London Marathon after record numbers left the Start Line Saturday morning, making the 38th edition of the race the biggest in its history.

By the end 40,255 had conquered the hottest Race Day on record to cross the Finish Line in The Mall and pick up their hard-earned medals and souvenir finishers' T-shirts, beating last year's record total by 768 runners.

Some 41,003 set off on the 26.2-mile journey from Blackheath to Westminster at 10:00 a.m., sent on their way by Her Majesty The Queen, who pushed the event's famous red button on her gleaming green lawn in front of Windsor Castle as a hooter sounded over the heads of the men's elite field on the far side of London.

Pete-302x397-thumb-500x657-34344.jpgOne of the real stories of the 2018 Boston Marathon will be how Americans did so well when athletes from Ethiopia and Kenya collapsed in the brutal conditions. The successes, a some noted, were among American's club system, clubs such as Hansons Brooks Distance Project, HOKA's Northern Arizona Elite, and the focus of this story, Reeboks' ZAP Fitness. What is most fascinating is that these clubs were all the products of someone, or someones with a dream, and a running brand that got the vision thing.
