Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Hey I still have those Asics flats for you. And your St Ralph DVD. We'll have to try and meetup sometime soon.

What are your plans for tomorrow? Are you running the course to hit spots to cheer Andrea on? Maybe I could meet you two at the start and run down to Sugarhouse with you. Not sure if your legs are recovered enough to beat her down there though :)

From Jake K on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 09:44:25 from

I'm going to bike around the course - so I can follow her around as much as possible.

Is that a challenge - for me to race Andrea? :-)

From Adam RW on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 09:46:53 from

I don't know how you recover from marathons. But 5 days after running Boston I would think she may be able to give you a run for your money...

We'll have to get a group run next weekend. I can get the shoes and movie then.

Have a great weekend and I'll keep my eyes open for you and Andrea tomorrow.

yeah by next saturday i'll be able to take the reigns off again :-)

If you are watching from up near your house on Foothill, I'll probably see you along the way

I'll be doing my run and try and catch a couple points.
