Good job Slick. You are going to have a great race in Boston. I'm excited to see how well you do.

From Tom Slick on Sat, Apr 02, 2011 at 13:03:47 from 69.171.160.186

Jo Rhett, Bostons is just another long run this season....I'm not doing anything special there, except maybe run with Canyon.

From Rhett on Sat, Apr 02, 2011 at 14:12:28 from 74.36.33.52

Oh, for some reason I thought you were going for a Boston PR. Well, running with Canyon might land you one. She's pretty speedy. I'm getting excited to just cruise through Boston myself. Stay healthy. See you in a couple weeks.

From Teena Marie on Sat, Apr 02, 2011 at 15:20:52 from 67.2.71.182

I am getting excited to follow you (via splits) at Boston!!!

Next year though ... it's YOU vs. ME!!! :) :) :)

Looking forward to some great photos of those flag shorts to accompany your awesome Boston performance.

Rhett & RPaul ; when I switched up and decided to do about 9 or 10 marathons this year I changed my plans to more of a survival mode. One plan is to BQ at every marathon I do this year. Should be do able as I'm an old cogger an my BQ time is a really big number!!!!!!

From MarcE on Sat, Apr 02, 2011 at 22:01:10 from 204.16.82.120

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Boston is coming up! :) You'll do great Slick.

Good luck with finding a running partner on Sundays, Slick...just sayin' :)

From RAD on Sat, Apr 02, 2011 at 22:09:56 from 98.202.17.113

It was great to see you this morning Slick! You just have to slow down if you want to run with me :)

Good luck tomorrow - rain or shine!
