    Yes, my morning drive to work used to take me past a supermarket where, every day, a number of retired people would be waiting outside about 15 to 20 minutes before it opened.

    Not writing about our sport, but one of our young stars shows up in the stock photo. Why do editors like picking pictures of pole vaulters when they're in the middle of missing a bar - wouldn't a make be more visually pleasing? Unless that's a clue as to the outcome of this scenario...

    That's good to know. I looked per your instructions and found it.

    In his book, Tale of the Ancient Marathoner, Jack Foster said that on his first run he was sure he had done at least six or seven miles, but his wife said he was only gone seven minutes.
