This is Sunday, December 24, 2023.

It is Christmas Eve.

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

I always enjoyed my runs on Sundays and long runs in the Santa Cruz marathons,

long runs in Tucumcari, New Mexico (where I was nearly arrested in 1980), long runs in

Barstow, CA, and many, many other places!

Long run today for an hour!

Our featured photo is Molly Seidel from the Bank of America 2023 Chicago Marathon, where she ran a PB of 2.23.07.

At RunBlogRun, we love Molly Seidel. I just met her at Chicago Marathon this past year, and she

was terrific. We first met Molly when she ran the 10,000m at the Payton Jordan Invitational some years ago.

Then, we smiled when she made the Olympic team and we screamed out loud when Molly held on for the Olympic bronze medal

in Sapporo /pretend Tokyo 2021.


This weekend, Molly was featured on my favorite radio podcast, Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell me,
