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!
From Martin on Tue, Apr 24, 2018 at 00:55:45 from 22.214.171.124
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 126.96.36.199
