Running Festival notes: Hopkins student Tropf, McDaniel professor Baage win marathon

Last year, Lyman came in 41st place, with a time of 2: This year, he hopes to beat the time, and to do it, his training is rigorous, as Lyman said. In college, Lyman said he was relatively reserved, until, as a freshman, he entered a wing-eating competition at the school. He said that he was surprised when he easily defeated larger individuals, like school seniors and football players in the contest. Four years in a row, Lyman said he won wing-eating competitions in college and, after he graduated, he decided to try his hand in Wing Bowl. His best showing, Lyman said, was a fourth-place finish, in which he devoured wings in one sitting.

It has been a refreshing change of pace pun intended. The group training experiences that structured my high school, college and early post-collegiate training and racing eventually felt confining and restrictive. But the loneliness of the long distance runner lacing up his or her shoes run after run leads to many quiet miles that can also become unfulfilling at times. Sometimes the heart aches for the ability to express itself to another; it desires to bask in the company of a different pulse and become stimulated by a sense of open communication soaked with emotion.

This individual of course is my ultra-running-artist girlfriend, Sandi Nypaver. Although she is 2. She started running later in life but has covered a tremendous distance literally and figuratively in her young adulthood by overcoming many odds and obstacles. As a collegiate basketball player Sandi always had the dedication and drive to compete as a top-level athlete.

From putting in extra time in the weight room and on the court, to shooting hoops in her front yard, Sandi and her sister Rachel developed a high level of self-discipline at a relatively young age. Her first ultra-trail race was no less than miles she won. Sandi has always been a badass. Funny thing how such decisions in life can influence who you meet. From the frustrations of getting lost and climbing up treacherous class 3 boulders to sharing a Kind bar while enjoying mountain views from over 12, feet above sea level our training together has been tremendously rewarding.

In the past month Sandi and I have traveled running from the Mountains of New Hampshire and the beaches of Boston to the forests of the Pacific Northwest and a ski resort in Utah.

We are the change that we seek. One marathon and one more year of marriage later, it seems like a good time to reflect, as I do every year in my anniversary month.

Despite that, in almost 21 years together and 17 years married, we have had ups and downs….

Tens of thousands of Twitter users crowded onto the Boston Police Department scanner early on Friday morning as reports of a shoot-out were emerging from Watertown. They frantically tweeted everything coming over the crackly line, often mishearing or failing to understand the context as police screamed for back up. Most damaging of all Twitter users began to circulate a rumour that a missing Indian-American student was one of the bombers.

Even one of his friends tweeted that his picture matched one of the men sought by the FBI. It took only a moment for his name to be flashed all over the internet, to the dismay of his parents who have not heard from him for over a month. The wildfire of speculation that the student was involved was only brought under control after NBC News directly contradicted the internet reports. It is emphatically not about making sure any allegations resulting from the picture are made public,” said the New Statesman’s Alex Hern.
