What better way to end the year than starting your morning out with a nice 26.2 mile trail run? Rob, Michelle, Steve, Margaret, Jane, Ray, Myself, and about 70 others will be running the "Last Chance Marathon" in Bellingham Washington tomorrow. Apparently the course has been altered due to a mudslide which will increase the mileage above the marathon distance but what the heck!
Rob and Steve are going to be my pacers for WS100 so we plan on running the race together as a long slow run. We are guessing about a 4:15 - 4:30 depending on the climbs. It will give me a chance to work on my new standup comedy act with these guys. Hmmm, maybe that's why they were talking about bringing thier I-Pods.
Bellingham is where Michelle and I went to College and nearby the towns that we both grew up in. It's a college town (Western Washington University) with it's primary industry being logging, commercial fishing, and serves as an international port. A few of us will be staying with Michelle's parents tonight so we can get a couple of extra hours of sleep before the run. Hopefully my evil mother-in-law with the horns and the evil hiss will be on good behavior since we will have guests. (Just kidding Donna). he he he.
I'll report back on how the run went on New Years Day in between the Resolution Run and football games.

Run like a maniac!
