Nice to be thinking about Boston! Unfortunately, I won't be going since Callie didn't get in! :-(

It will be fun to mix up the training schedule a bit.

From Tom Slick on Wed, Dec 05, 2018 at 09:04:18 from 173.117.162.176

IJR - I was so hoping that you and Callie were going to make it to Boston 2019. That's life in the fast lane, maybe 2020. You both should consider Running the really fast Huntsville "Full Monte" Marathon in September...

From Tom Slick on Wed, Dec 05, 2018 at 09:41:16 from 173.117.162.176

Rhett - I feel so blessed even though unworthy to even be in the same room with so many fine accomplished runners. By the time I get started running the Boston 2019 Marathon I will have logged in 24,915 days upon this earth and so many miles that I've lost count, for which I am eternally grateful. So Bro Rhett, it is fun to be able to be changing up my training schedule for yet another run from Hopkinton to the finish line at Boston! God willing and if the creeks don't rise it will be my 14th running of the Boston Marathon and my 60th lifetime marathon completed!

Tom, I am always impressed with the statistics of your running career! Have a great marathon build-up.
