07.08.2018 it’s 2:50 AM and I am up early getting ready to run my marathon. It is the Burn Your Half Off (double half) in Chattanooga, TN. This will be my fifth marathon (seventh if you count the 50K and 40M), and I am better prepared for it than any before it. I have also carbo loaded more thoroughly, so I’m interested to see what kind of difference that makes. It’s about a 2:20 drive from my home here in Oxford, AL, so I should be done and back by mid afternoon. I’m not going for speed. I’m going for fun…That sounds like a new tag line. I’ll have to remember that one.
