Everything and Anything Running Related

    This is not a question so I didn't know where to put it. Is there a general Running Related thread? If so, a mod can merge at some stage.

    So, everyone's favourite female 400 metre runner of all time, Allyson Felix, has become a Mammy. Kept it extremely quiet and it seems there were complications. Baby delivered very early and still in Intensive Care. Some strange comments and angles on why she didn't tell people.........

    I enjoyed this comment from her brother though when she told him and her coach about the pregnancy after a couple of slow races.

    "It was time to tell them what was really going on.

    I was pregnant.

    Wes was like, "I'm so glad you're not just slow!"

    On a more personal note. I model my 400 metre rep running style on Felix. That's what I tell myself when I start each rep. Relax, run like A Felix. After about 10 metres I decide to run like her Mum and for the last 80 metres I switch to Grandma Felix gait. It works for me.
