Last year I broke my foot over the summer and was unable to run. The Boy (aka Marathon Man) and best friend John ran it anyway. Then a hurricane arrived on the day of the marathon, making travelling home something of an adventure.
THIS YEAR WILL BE DIFFERENT.
Weather - good.
No broken bones - very good.
Trained up - good.
Watered up - very good.
Plus I'm running with a friend from my training group. As I've learned, running with a buddy or a group can make a huge mental difference.
In any case, if you are interested in virtually cheering for us, runner tracking is available here.
Full disclosure: I've not tested the system to know exactly how it works. After all, I'm running the race...I don't really need to track myself and, quite honestly, until I'm done I don't care how the guys are doing!
Anyway, my bib number is 28664.
The Boy's bib number is 25883.
I can't wait to earn my medal...
SEMPER FI, Y'ALL!
