Came home and just finished going through several HUNDRED freakin' e-mails. SHIT! I forgot to check my SPAM folder...
If I can still walk three weeks after doing the Boston Marathon, I have just agreed to be the 4:45 Pace Bunny for the Vancouver Adidas Marathon on May 7th.
I love the 4:45 Groups. The people in this Pace Group are usually wonderful right across the board, for many it is their first marathon, and - Oh so exciting - which really rubs off and you can just revel in their joy and enthusiasm and get a vicarious thrill from their experience.
I only hope I can help someone like Allen achieve a - I almost hate to say this after the last Blog - goal time like qualifying for the Boston Marathon or achieving a personal best or of course, best of all, helping someone finish their first marathon.
What makes the 4:45 Group so special is that aside from the many first timers, there are also many more "experienced" runners in the mix, silver foxes of both genders, and on the run, the stories that get told from people with lives so rich and full of truly remarkable experiences are all the more memorable.
Looking forward to it.
