I like to scare myself, and what better time than Halloween weekend? Friday I officially signed up to run the first ever “Monumental Marathon” Saturday. I met Ken Long, the Race Director, and former Mini-Marathon Guru, while running one of his races this Summer. He, and some fellow running friends have been very encouraging. So I’m nervous but excited about the challenge. Nevertheless, you may want to DVR me on TV Friday, just in case I never finish the race. And then: call Julie Patterson, Jennifer Carmack, and Tom Davis. Blame them for their bad advice. Can you do that for me? Thanks. BTW: if you’d like to go through the 26.2 miles in about 13 minutes…check out the video below.
