4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

Mobile, Here I Come!

with 5 comments

First Light Marathon is a mere 4.5 days away, and I’m getting excited about the trip out there.  Came across this very informative and entertaining article in the Press-Register.

  • Informative – Mobile is the host of this week’s GoDaddy.com bowl game.  Now I have some interest to perhaps watch!
  • Entertaining – A crowd of 40,000 watched a mechanical Moon Pie drop from the sky on New Years Eve!  Some additional research uncovered this article outlining many more odd New Years Eve droppings in other cities.
  • Sensible – The author states that the 7:30 marathon start time is completely unreasonable.  I agree!

In training news, I ran an easy 4 miler last night, and have some light speed-work planned for tonite.  Then probably an easy final tune-up on Friday.

 This is gonna be fun…

  4. Hi Scott!

    Wow! You’ve really accomplished a lot since you started this blog! It’s inspiring to me since I’m just starting out with long-distance running.

    I ran across your site while doing some research on marathons, which I then compiled into a marathon calendar graphic. It also includes some marathon training tips. I’d love it if you gave it a look when you have a moment:

  5. Sorry I missed you! I had spent a lot of time in the port o potty’s so at some point you probably passed me. I liked running through the 2 college campuses.
