26.2 Just ahead of me


I thought of the pun in the title ages ago (as you might guess, since it refers to a song by Tool), and I’m not going to let something like not having blogged in six years keep me from getting to use it.

I never thought I would use it, but after a few years of trying to see how far I can make my body run without it collapsing (with so far pleasantly surprising results), today I’m going to run the Philadelphia Marathon. And blogging, I guess? We’ll see how it goes.

UPDATE: I wasn’t able to post this from the starting corral; I assume the cell networks around there were groaning with the strain of all the people in that area. I ran that marathon! Unofficial time was 4:47:59, with which I am entirely satisfied.
