Heard Mr. Richter on the Rangers broadcast last night talking about the marathon. Could not say how amazed he was by 'regular folks' who have jobs\families\etc. who trained for the marathon. And how lucky he was to be a part of it, when his schedule is much easier to juggle for training.<br><br>
(He is retired, but is a full time student - at Yale. That's right Theia, smart, wealthy, modest....)<br><br>
Regarding celebrities an marathoners - I kind of agree with Maureen regarding Katie Holmes - I am sure she was not the only one who signed up on a whim, did not train right, and muddled though it.<br><br>
I saw him posting about BBC in the PRT, and I picked up their Octoberfest. Possibly the best tasting beer I have ever had. Was less impressed by their black and tan.
