Doing it a Boston would be sweet!

It was sweet!

Break 3 hours again, but now as a masters runner. It's been 9 years since my last sub 3. I better do this soon as I'm not getting any younger.



Nothing right now.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Keep on running.

Race day finally made the 10 day forecast today and it is predicting 49 Low/ 71 High with scattered showers. Oh how I hope that forecast holds up.

I am RRREEEEAAAALLLLYYYYY hoping that the weather holds up.

Fly, yes the Phoenix Marathon on March 1.

Blake, if we get weather like they are forecasting right now, I will be happier than a pig in slop. :)

Kind of surprising that it is on a Saturday...That's cool. Are you planning to go sub 3 hours??

From Rhett on Fri, Feb 21, 2014 at 14:47:57 from

Hey Mack. How're you doing? It's good to hear from you. I swing by your blog every now and then to see if you have posted anything. Yeah, the Phoenix Marathon is actually in Mesa, so that's probably why it is not on Sunday. I had thought about a sub 3 attempt, but do to an injury that kept me from running for 6 weeks in the middle of my training, I have not been able to log enough miles. Instead I'll just try to BQ which for me is a 3:15.
