    A little chilly for beach wear for running, so coats are still in.

    I want to see them do the Boston [winter] Marathon.

    Could be exciting if it’s at all possible to run to where it’s sunny. Sometimes one is not that far from the edge of bad weather.

    There is still ice on the lakes. First open water by the inlets/outlets was just last week.

    Not me. I’ve heard of them going rock climbing in 112f heat activity nuts are self destructive.

    I have seen idiot newscasters in southern California remark that 90 degree weather is just perfect for a marathon.

    Training for the fall marathons means long training runs in the summer heat. Pick your poison.

    these type people are addicts/idiots. they think they are going to live forever. they are like those religious zealots who whip themselves in order to be more holy. humans aren’r designed to run, form follows function.

    Great expression on Frazz’s face in the final panel. He looks a little sheepish to admit what a maniac he is. Nice change from the strident self-congratulation we usually see from these obsessed fitness nuts.

    No wonder Pastis makes such fun of “Jeff”.

    The lake will be out of the picture for more than a couple of weeks unless they use a wetsuit.

    " humans aren’r designed to run, form follows function." Some anthro Geeks claim otherwise. Our early ancestors needed to move quickly across the savannas and ran down prey. The discussions get interesting.

    For decades I waited for an explanation for human hairlessness (relative to apes, anyway), and I think the anthro-geeks are right on this. The profusion of sweat glands in human skin combined with no fur means we can run for hours without getting heat stroke. That’s why we run marathons but there are no long-distance horse-races except by relays. There are still a few African tribes that hunt by relentless pursuit until the quarry drops.
