Any Takers?

This is my Super Bowl half time blog update.

I think I have mentioned that Gina, Diane have talked me into running a half marathon. Actually they were shooting for a full marathon but I knew better than that. To me a marathon was any time I ran beyond the mile and a half required my annual Air Force PT test. Anyway I was convinced and I have found my time of running has helped me think through many of my thoughts about losing Andrea. So I'm going "public," I'm coming out of the closet...I going to run the race. Okay forget the closet reference, that may not be the best way to say it, just don't ask and I won't tell. Anyway we are going to run on in a race on May 17th in Boise. It is the Idaho Great Potato Marathon & Half Marathon, 10K and 5K. Rumor has it you get a bag of Idaho potatoes when you finish, just a little incentive for those of us who love French fries.

Okay I just Googled the race and found out I could be running a 5K! Remind me to call Gina.

If any of you want to join us we would love to see you there. We (me) are not planning on setting any speed records and you know if I can do it anyone can. So you have 3 months to train so get out your running shoes and I will see you in May.


  1. My husband is training for that marathon. I'm excited to hear you'll be in Boise and hope I have a chance to meet you and see you cross the finish line!

  2. I'll start training! (again... I fall off the training-wagon every year) Can't wait to see you there!!
