小沈同学的故事好像以前讲过一点。几年前刚刚参加cambridge running club的时候，他小人家还只能与老年妇女们为伍，后来越跑越快，进入了青年妇女组，再后来，就不知道他是否超越了青年妇女们，还是由于某个众所周知的原因停滞不前了。去年他跑了波士顿马拉松，后来又去跑了芝加哥马拉松，跑完之后得意忘形，在酒吧里面庆祝出来，被两个黑人小兄弟拿枪比着，不得不把剩余的酒资捐献出来。再后来，听说他小人家的腿杆跑出了毛病，不得不暂时在马拉松的道路上停下来修整。
Thanks everyone for your kind message, and thanks XiaoHang and XiaoSen for your encouragement and advice before I run.
I had a great time yesterday. The weather was awful in the early of the morning, but became much better later. Just as good as every runner hopes for, for the most time of the running, the weather was cool with some drizzle. It was a great day, great run, and great fun.
To share a few things with you that I saw yesterday:
The most impressive runner was a blind runner, he carried a sign "I am a blind runner" on his back and was guided with two guide runners who were running with him on his left and right.
I saw a "just married" couple. The bride worn a pair of running shoes and dressed in white. She run as beautifully as she was.
There was another girl I thought impressive. She carried a sign "26.2 miles for 26th birthday" on her back. The girl was pretty heavy and run slowly. I passed her at about 4th mile. I hope she did well in the next 24 miles and had a meaningful birthday.
This year I think the most enthusiastic cheerful people were still Wellesley girls. I could hear them even from half mile away when I was approaching to Wellesley.
The cutest cheerful person is a three (or four) years old body. He stood on the street's sideway with a big innocent smile and straighted his two arms with both his thumbs up. He looks very cute.
One thing I have been disappointed with fact that I don't see many Chinese runners in the marathon. Yesterday I had same feeling as I did last year. There are many runners came from Japan and Korea but I hardly saw any Chinese. Yesterday I heard at least twice that people yelled at me "Hey keep it up Honda, you are doing good". I wasn't too happy, they must think that I was one of the Japanese runners. I hope that more Chinese runners will join us in the future and someday people would cheer me "YaoMing, keep it up".
SD rock-n-roll marathon next year sounds a great year. I am joining the HEAD team.
