Tonawanda News — Funny, that amateur runners in America tend to be desk-bound professionals, or people who aspire to that sort of thing. In a way they are also something of an outlaw, or at least nonconformist (in the social, not religious way) class, the ones who seriously train for personal satisfaction, who set goals irrespective of dollar payoff. The ones who can run from downtown Buffalo to downtown Niagara Falls without stopping, as fast as they can.
Mess with them if you like, but don’t plan on stopping them. Boston can handle its current crisis. The marathon can as well.Ed Adamczyk is a Kenmore resident whose column appears Fridays in the Tonawanda News. Contact him at EdinKenmore@gmail.com.
