Almost here!

Almost here!

Serious backlog yet again… seemingly the story of my life, especially of late, between two weeks at my in-laws’, a week here, a week in Ohio, a week back here with a nasty sinus infection and an outpatient procedure, and alas, it’s race week all of a sudden!

Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon will be here in T minus three days now- holy moly!  The countdown is on!  Words can’t adequately express how stoked I am!  First marathon in a year and a half and, more importantly, first marathon post-A!  And to boot, Saturday (4/28) was my due date, so it’s kinda extra special 🙂 🙂 🙂

Race report and pics to follow…

And in the interim, two of my fav quotes about marathoning!

There is the truth about the marathon and very few of you have written the truth. Even if I explain to you, you’ll never understand it; you’re outside of it.
Douglas Wakiihuri speaking to journalists

We are different, in essence, from other men.   If you want to win something, run 100 meters.

If you want to experience something, run a marathon.
