    Re: Where's Regina?

    I think she has already started training for the most important race of her career. That would be the first indoor meet of 2004. That is where she likes to peak.

      "I think she has already started training for the most important race of her career. That would be the first indoor meet of 2004. That is where she likes to peak."

      Oh joy - more bashing of American distance runners. People bitch because we don't have enough quality runners, then take pleasure in taking pot shots at the few good ones we do have (i.e. Webb, Suzy, Regina, etc.). Last time I checked Regina was approaching 40 years old and still running near 4 flat. The fact that she is still able to compete at that level is a testament to her will.

        I sort of agree as regards Suzy and Regina... but putting Webb in the same category ??? You gotta be kidding :[email protected]

              It never made sense to me to complain about being nipped at the line, or just falling short, after running 2, 3 1/2, 4, 8, 12, or 25 laps anywhere but on the rail. The outside of the inside lane is still a lot farther per lap than on the rail. (And don't get me started about road racers following the center of the road!)

                Her ass is sitting on chair before a grand jury trying to explain why she looks a stunt double to Linda Hamilton in Terminator II.......

                      "Chomping on the bit" is a malapropism. It's "champing at the bit." Irregardless, right? Got it yet?

                        Although it was originally 'champing', it IS now commonly refered to as 'chomping.' There are several Phrase Origin sites that attest to this.

                              Dydx, what up with your fixation for grammar? This is a T&F site, where hard core fans assemble. My English teacher will probably not be seen here so lighten up and post T&F material.

                                being a track fan is no excuse for bad grammar. no you lighten up, lest everyone ends up speaking like Larry Doubley. so there, a post about tnf!
