It’s official. The madness has begun.
Facebook is burning up with all the last minute freakouts. Kellie is about to go off the deep end. Nicole is trying to keep her calm while battling a last minute germ attack. It’s Marathon Madness at it’s best. Not that I can blame any one of you. Who wouldn’t freak, knowing this is waiting at the finish line?
As you may remember, I ran a disastrous Donald Half during Marathon Weekend last year. Knee issues aside, it wasn’t my favorite race. My apologies if I offend thee, but I will take the Wine and Dine course, (and late night start), over this race any day. Except for the gospel singers. Those people know how to party.
Sadly, there seems to be a common thread weaving its way through all the race talk this year. It seems like an inordinate amount of runners have recently suffered great losses in the last few weeks leading up to race weekend. I can only send my love and best wishes that you may find peace and healing in the upcoming miles. I know many of us find just that when hitting the pavement at our darkest times.
And if during what may feel like never-ending miles, you find yourself getting sad, and a little pick-me-up is in order, just look for these two. Singing the entire litany of every Disney song ever written. It’s guaranteed to cheer up even the Grumpiest of Dwarfs.
Best of luck to everyone running, singing, and volunteering this weekend. Everyone here at Black Dog Productions is already proud of you. Now….GO KICK SOME DUPA!!!
Enjoy the ride.
Who’s headed to Marathon Weekend? Will you be running ALL the miles or just some of them? Nervous? No worries! Kellie and Nicole will be taking requests!
