High Five to Mark. I will think Happy Thoughts for him but I have to keep my speedy vibes for myself..LOL selfish I know.

Hugs to you being the spectator and taking some AMAZING photos!! I will be curious how you feel on the other side of things.

I wonder how much it costs to text international?? I text with Lacey now and then and would love to with you...but not sure of the pennies..

the only time the bf will go running with me is when we are at the cottage and he is scared that i will be eaten by bears.....(but what will he do if a bear attacks us? nothing. we will both die! lol)

(I`m sure that Mark read this): Mark, good luck with your first thon. I was telling this to another speedy runner I`ve met, but your other times show massive promise. You have put in the work, and I am sure you like me are eyeing that Boston pace. Keep relaxed the first half and take advantage in the downhills. Who said it that a marathon was the easiest 20 miler followed by the hardest 10K.

I have faith in the Pfitz training program. It makes you put in the hard work but you`ll find at mile 20, the dividends pay off. Good luck

(and have fun cheering, Marlene!)
