Donald Trump is now, apparently, a Birther. I didn't have much respect for him to begin with and this certainly doesn't increase it....

I can't totally relate to this, because I wasn't a long-distance runner in high school (far from it, actually), but I get the whole "distance running is inherently solitary and sort of geeky" thing. "...to make running about winning is to betray the sport, and to become a jerk in the process. To the extent that running is about the self, it is the self nourished by solitude, not the self glorifying in narcissism."

"To take what there is in life and use it, without waiting forever in vain for the preconceived, to dig deep into the actual and get something out of that; this, doubtless, is the right way to live." - Henry James
