I hope to see at least some of you at the Run The River Marathon and Ultramarathon along the American River next weekend. I’m mentioning this in my blog only because I want to be held accountable if I chicken out and don’t do this. The last time I ran one of these road races, I had no clear goal in mind, except to beat Puffy’s time in the New York Marathon. These days, I would be happy just to beat Simon Pegg’s time in Run Fatboy Run. When I hit the wall at the mid-point, I will think of Bob Holtel, who completed the Pacific Crest Trail by running the equivalent of a marathon on it almost every freaking day. That should put this thing in perspective.
