|The Three State Route- Point to point. We are bussed from Mesquite to Utah, the marathon starts in Utah, down Hwy 91 through Arizona, and finishes back in Mesquite, Nevada.|
It looks like Captain, Beaver and me are doing the road marathon, Meanie is doing the half-marathon and Portage is doing the 10K. I am hoping for a PB and a Boston qualifier (3:40), which should be no problem. What could go wrong? I wouldn't run the Boston Marathon though, but I could brag that I qualified. I think in April 2012 we might be doing the "Don't Run Boston Trail 50 Mile & 50K". It happens the day before the big race, but should be more fun. We could hang around and watch the marathon the next day.
A few of the Pylons are running Vulture Bait in October, but I couldn't get the day off work. In 1 year, 1 month and 29 days, that won't be a problem anymore.
Updated Training Log For 2011
April-69 miles (rib injury)

Pretty weird, only 1 mile difference.
Here's 2 cool shots of Portage and her friend Kathy "Bringing It" at the end of the Ladies Own 10K last weekend.

|Just about there....|
On Monday, The Boy and me are off to Halifax to get him settled at University. We are having a huge "Paleo Hot Wing" party for him on Saturday night. He doesn't really need me to go with him, but I have a mission, and it involves the supposed best burger in the maritmes, the Peanut Butter Burger at "Darrels."
|That's "The Boy" on the right.I believe that finger gesture stands for "And the horse you rode in on".|
Gonna miss that guy until Christmas.
