Racers On Your Mark, Get Ready, Get Set, Go

Running 1 Comment »

The big day is finally here.  Well it will be tomorrow, the 2008 St. Jude Memphis Marathon.  It’s bitter sweet.  Although I’m very excited about finishing tomorrow, I’m somewhat sad. I’ve spent the past 5 months training, 11 if you include the Germantown Marathon (when I got sick two weeks before the race). After tomorrow, there won’t be anything to train for until March.

Well, I’m sure that I’ll find something to train for, or take that time to find a new power song.

For those of you who are braving the cold weather, enjoying the sunshine, the cold beer afterwards, and having your spirit lifted by the patients, parents, and loved ones at St. Jude . . . GOOD LUCK!!!!

Only 21.097 km (13.1 miles) to go.
