Best of luck to all the runners headed to Kitty Hawk, North Carolina for the OBX Marathon on Sunday! I especially want to send well wishes to my running buddies—Les, Wayne, Neal, and Jonathon. They've trained hard and are going to represent the Blueliners well. You guys are awesome! Don't forget to enjoy the view while you're running. Supposed to be a beautiful course!
Two other running buddies—Andy and Kelly—and I recently ran the Ridge to Bridge Marathon in Morganton, NC. This race was on the other side of the state in the mountains. The first 14 miles were down hill! Was a tough race. Kelly and Andy both set PRs. Kelly even qualified for Boston! Wasn't my day. I had to drop out of the race. But it was a beautiful course nonetheless. It's a small race (only 150 runners) and extremely well organized. I'm always looking for new races, especially marathons and half marathons. What are some of your favorites?
