    I hope you put all you’re stuff back online. Some is real motivational and it’s always a nice read! You’re site and articles made me a much better runner!

    I miss the articles that were on your previous website, especially “The Second Tier Disappears” and “Gallo Whoppers”. I have linked to both articles several times over the years in posts on running forums and in essays that I have posted on my Running Page. Any chance that you will revive them here?

    I have read your articles on Kenyan runners and Bro Colm O Connell and found it very interesting.
    I am part of a support team of an olympian middle distance runner and would like to go and visit Bro Colm.
    Is there any advise you can give me on how to get hold of him and when is the best time to go and visit him

    It is no small secret that I have long been a fan of the Scott Speaks column that used to grace the back page of RT and would love to be able to read a collection of it.

    I specifically like CBD Isolate Crystals because they do not contain any THC so I have peace of mind in the case that I have to take a drug test for work because I am a fire fighter.
