Well… tonight is the big night. I am sitting around with Amy, Joe, Pam and Nick having a few frosty beverages shooting the shit preparing for the 2008 Bay to Breakers. We have our costumes prepared, we have a plan for getting to and from the race course, and now… we are drinking whiskey and lemonade drinks :D Check out the photos below to keep up to date with our progress.
Not too long ago Amy and I went out with some friends of our (Joe & Pam). While out, we got to talking about running and marathons and it turns out, Pam has run a few in her day. As the conversation continued, Amy said she had always wanted to run a marathon (as had I)… so she decided right then and there that 2008 would be the Year of the Marathon! She has started a mission that I assume will be one of the hardest of her fitness life… and I will be running along side her.
Amy and I have always been very active (she much more than I) and look forward to this challenge. If you are interested in running with us (or biking with me) shoot me an email and lets get outside! The weather has just started being nice again outside (above 60 and sunny all week) and I am excited to get off of the treadmill. Visit my site often and check out the running log (in the right hand navigation) to follow our mileage and routes.
Lots of updates to follow, I’m sure. Oh, for reference, I am debating running the San Francisco Marathon and Amy is thinking about the Nike Womens Marathon. Additionally, we are going to try and run the Bay to Breakers 12k in May as well as a fitness gauge.
