Five Fast Freaks

I am excited to announce that I was invited to be a 5th member on a relay team for the Akron Marathon. The team was just put together this week and I signed up for the race yesterday. I have the privilege of running the final leg to the finish. Here is a quote from a description of:

The Finish
An Olympic-style finish in Canal Park, our beautiful AA baseball park and home of the Akron Aeros, features 9,000 seats for family and friends. For those who watched runners at the start, the 3-mile mark and the 10-mile mark, they have only a short downhill walk to arrive at Canal Park in time to watch the finish. These fans greet the runners as they enter the ballpark in right-center field and make a final circuit around the warning track to the finish line near first base. This year, fans will also be able to spot their favorite runners on the new digital scoreboard in center field.


Doesn't that sound so cool? How can I not have fun with this race?

Too cool! I am green with envy.

So any update on miracle drink? Would help save some $$. :)

Lou, you will have a blast at this race. I'm doing the relay for the 3rd year in a row. This time I have the 10.7 mile leg of the 2-person relay (I've done each of the 10k legs on the 5-person before), so I get to finish in the park too. Good times! See you Saturday!

That is too cool!! Sounds awesome...no telling what you all will run that thing in...something very amazing I'm sure.

I've been meaning to get back with you about the BeginnerTriathlete training log. I have always used the CoolRunning.com training log, although I am a member at BT also. Maybe I should consider switching...do you like the BT one a lot?

You are going to rock it Lou! I just hope I don't disgrace us on the 5k uphill section :) Hopefully this dang cough and nose crap will be gone by then!
