time to hit the road(2hope)

just wanted to post a quick shout-out to everyone running this weekend's Hamilton Marathon Road2Hope - no matter what your distance or your goal, know that i'm rooting for you and stand with you in pride as to your accomplishments (and sacrifices) that have gotten you to the start line.

specifically i'm cheering for a few friends:

  • kathleen, who will be running her first marathon and hoping for a sub-4:00 finish
  • norm, also running his first marathon (and second race ever) - hoping to finish before they collect the course pylons and put away the beer
  • stan, who is gunning for an uber-impressive sub-2:50 time
  • trevor, who will be running his second marathon and pacing me toward a BQ time
  • lewis, who will be volunteering for the first time at a race event.
here's wishing you all a great weekend ahead!

  1. Thanks Patrick. May the force be with you. I'll be waiting at the finish line with a box of Grandads Donuts.
