Running and Philosophy

For those of you reading this on the blog site, you'll notice on the side bar my there is a feed from the running log that I keep. I was a high school cross country runner, and as an adult have been an occasional road runner. A dean at my college and I flirted with ramping up for a possible marathon run last winter (in a tropical climate), but neither of us made it. My cute wife (see the picture (in a tropical climate) on the sidebar) and I did do the Columbus Half-Marathon last October (see results here). That was a lot of fun.

Last week, was our annual Bethel Philosophy Lectures; the speaker was Charles Taliaferro. At supper I learned that he had been a contributor to the book, Running & Philosophy (Blackwell, 2007). He sent me a copy of the book this week. Thanks Charles! I'll do some reading in it this weekend as the Stumps go away and report back.

I would've loved to hear that lecture. In the future, can alumni come to those? If they can't, will you notice if I come wearing a mustache and glasses?

I really do hope to get back into running this summer. In the meantime, do you know if they've come out with "Showering & Philosophy" yet?

P.S. I continue to be amazed by the guys BC lines up for these annual philosophy lectures. I mean, when you considered the fact that Willard, Craig, Swinburne, Plantinga, and Taliaferro have all graced BC with their presence, you would think this Dame or something.
