Running Times Thinking Outside The Box

From a press release on RT's redesign:
[RT] will introduce two new monthly sections - the NCAA Section and the Master's Section...
The NCAA Section, spearheaded by new contributing editor Chris Lear, author of Running with the Buffaloes and Sub-4, will provide college athletes direct access to coach / athlete profiles, team reports / statistics as well as training and racing advice from top coaches and timely topics such as the dos and don'ts of transitioning out of college and into the pros. An interactive, online channel will compliment the in-book NCAA Section...
The Master's Section will specifically target the 40+ master runner and offer competitive training techniques and resources for this experienced demographic.
A few years back I got pretty annoyed at what I thought was a generally snotty attitude in RT and canceled my subscription. I'll reverse that for the Chris Lear stuff alone.

P.S. I don't work in the private sector--I'm a teacher. But if I did, I'd probably get so fed up with "think outside the box" that I'd carry a shiv just to keep that phrase in check.

As I told my boss this morning... it's much more pleasant to think inside the box. I think you know what I mean.
