    Default Running the Marathon Tomorrow

    Well boys (and girls), this is it. I'm running the Marine Corps Marathon tomorrow. Been training for it since February and I'm as ready as I'm gonna be. Wish me luck and keep those Lions at bay until I get back!

    Wishing you lots of luck and lots of skill to get a good, solid result/finish. Be on the lookout for some part time blogger who may try to throw a tomato in your direction.

    Go Henry!!!

    Awesome brother

    I know you have run it before - it's a great race and you should have great Fall weather tomorrow as well. Been far too long for me. Maybe next year will be the year....

    Break a leg sir!

    And, most importantly, OOH-RAH!!!

    Good luck and more power to you!

    OK, maybe that's not the best strategy for a marathon, but you get my drift.

    5:30 or so. I was hoping for about an hour better but both my legs cramped up at mile 15. Gutted it out but had to take more walking breaks than I planned. HeLl of a ride tho

    Congrats Henry! I was down there to support a dear friend of mine. She finished at 4:32. Walking from one position to another to support her, I feel like I ran one myself.

    I have to say, I am not interested in ever running a Marathon. Watching the faces of everyone running at about the 15 mile mark and beyond, it just doesn't appeal to me.

    Congratulations Henry! Great Job!!!

    Congrats Henry! Running a marathon is a major accomplishment - at any speed. Way to go brother, and enjoy hobbling around for the next few days knowing you earned those aches and pains

    Thanks guys. I really appreciate the kind words. In all my training runs I never had leg cramps like that. The frustrating thing was I felt totally fine otherwise, but every time I ran for more the five minutes they'd come back and I'd have to walk them out. The last twelve miles ended up taking me about three hours.

    And then I came home just in time to watch the Redskins lose.

    At least the Cowboys are done.
