I'm excited for you Slick. I really think you are going to have an amazing race and the weather looks like it should be cool and rainy which I think is perfect for a nice fast marathon. Now that I'm not running it, I'll have to live it vicariously through you. Go get 'em.

Rhett - I think you have made a wise choice, but I will miss meeting up with you and Blake!

Hey my friend! Thanks again for coming to cheer me at the Mt Nebo finish! You gave me some good advise before hand which I didn't see until I got on the blog later! Ha! Silly me!
Well, I signed up for the Full Monte tonight. It's probably another foolish choice. I heard that $95 of my $100 entry fee benefit some local charities. So may be that'll be a good consolation. Hey can you PM me your phone number? Thanks!
