I flew to D.C. today. The Marine Corps Marathon is this Sunday. Kevin (from Exeter) and I are going to start together, but I’m fully expecting he will bolt ahead of me in no time. We’ll see. Mom and I wandered the expo tonight and saw some pretty funny t-shirts. One said, “This seemed like a good idea three months ago.” Another said, “Running is cheaper than therapy.” Another said, “Your pace or mine?” And my personal favorite, “Marathon Ho.” They also gave us blank bibs so we can write inspirational or silly messages for other runners. Mine is going to say, “Where do I pick up my Marine?” Wish me luck.
