The Bob Hodge Running Page
Hodgie-San Through Miles of Years

Over the past two years I have been compiling my running history, summarizing each year’s races and objectives and presenting my daily running logs, along with "remembrances", relevant articles and viewer comments. I  reached completion of my main objective for this site after completing the 1988 logs and race summaries.
     This has been the presentation of one long distance runner’s twelve year mission. A journey of discovery. When in high school and college, running was just short of an obsession for me-a healthy one. Athletics brought clarity and focus to other aspects of life. I am now adding a  high school/college  running section to the site. My intentions are to continue to update the site with "remembrances", viewer comments, articles and other athlete’s thoughts and running logs. 
     The brainchild and creator of the site was Kevin Beck, also known as "Kemibe" -  it is fair to say the idea for the site might not have occurred to me without his input. Old Greater Boston Track Club teammate and friend Gary Wallace maintains the site and is the perfect person for the job. Many thanks to you both.

"You can’t burn out if you never catch fire"

I tramp a perpetual journey, (come listen all!)
My signs are a rain-proof coat, good shoes, and a staff cut from the woods,
No friend of mine takes his ease in my chair,
I have no chair, no church, no philosophy,
I lead no man to a dinner-table, library, exchange,
But each man and each woman of you I lead upon a knoll,
My left hand hooking you round the waist,
My right hand pointing to landscapes of continents and the public road.
Not I, not any one else can travel that road for you,
You must travel it for yourself.

Walt Whitman (18191892). Leaves of Grass.
