You Ask, I Deliver



Some people have accused me of hiding behind others in pretty much every shot of me running, racing, eating dinner, or standing around doing nothing. Mostly? This is quite true.

So, here you have me, in all my glory, bounding toward the finish line of the Montgomery Parks Half Marathon. (Apologies to Runner Susan who strikes this same pose on her site, with much better results.)

Meanwhile, in my sidebar, over there-------------------------------------->
(well, over and up) you will notice a new entry, titled "Support Me."

In order to train with DCFIT, I agreed to raise $100 for autism research. I hate asking for money, so I won't. Just wanted to point it out, should you feel so inclined.

And tomorrow is all sorted out, thanks for the help. The winner is: 13 miles! And then the taper officially starts.

Booyah!

That's great that you're raising money for autism research. My younger sister is autistic.

Have a great run, and enjoy the taper (ha--I didn't even know what tapering was three weeks ago). You're gonna do great. :)

Just came across your blog - great photo! Loved your previous entry - Inspiration, Perspiration, Desperation.

I guess most of us feel we haven't done enough training - I wished I'd started when I first thought about it, rather than just thinking about it for a couple of months before actually getting off my butt and doing it!

Good luck with your weekend 13 miler.
