I like your attitude! Let's go for it: 187 days, 11 hours till Frankfurt-Marathon!

From Tom Slick on Mon, Apr 23, 2018 at 15:53:31 from 174.148.210.211

Martin - I wish I could come and run the Frankfurt Marathon with you but I have committed myself to run the St George Marathon with a dear friend that is going to be inducted into the "10 Year Club" of the St George Marathon when he finishes the race. I promised "Sharon" that if he got into the position to run his tenth SGM, I would run it with him!This years run will be my 14th time to run the SGM which was my very first marathon to have ever run and the first marathon where I "BQ'ed" for the Boston Marathon!

Amazing how many marathons you ran! It will be an opportunity in the future!

From I Just Run on Wed, Apr 25, 2018 at 21:51:10 from 199.38.187.9

Some day I hope to run St George!

Martin - Keep track of those days till the Frankfurt marathon, they tend to speed by so fast....

From Tom Slick on Tue, May 01, 2018 at 08:39:10 from 173.139.145.53

Addison - This years Boston is over and in the books, now it's on to The St George Marathon in October! You are going to ramp up your training if you are going to be there (Boston) in 2019!

From Tom Slick on Tue, May 01, 2018 at 08:40:57 from 173.139.145.53

IJR - I can't believe that I'm into the recovery mile blues....can't wait to get past all the sore muscles and such!!!
