|Saint Louis, 2009|
Anyhow, I'm looking forward to the race. We're flying to Saint Louis tomorrow morning for the Rock 'n Roll Saint Louis Marathon.
Here's the goals:
"A" GoalRun a 2:49:00 or better
"B" GoalFinish sub-3 hours
"C" GoalFinish, not in too much pain from my knee,
Thanks are in order:My wife, for putting up with all the dirty laundry, sneaking in runs whenever I can, and running with me. She's so inspiring to me, and I wouldn't even be running right now if it weren't for her.
My parents, for giving me good enough genetics to run, but not so good of genetics that I get a big head.
The rest of my family, for reading my blog even though I mostly write about running.
My co-workers, for putting up with my frantic taper madness, in which I become a basket-case and forget to do things I normally wouldn't. I used to like tapering...
All my "running" friends, for "getting" it. The weird eating habits, the strange routines.... wetting yourself to PR in a half marathon (I've never done that), but still... you guys are awesome.
My non-running friends, for listening to meaningless conversations about running, and pretending to be impressed.
Andy and Stephanie, for hosting us in Saint Louis during the world series.
