It’s Tuesday night now and I’m getting everything ready for the Austin, Texas marathon this Sunday. I had no idea how far away Texas is from Utah when I signed up for this race. It’s a 21 hour drive to Austin. I could probably drive myself down but then I might be too exhausted to run my best. I already know from past experience there ‘ain’t no way I’m gonna be driving myself home. I have a little 5 speed Saturn Vue which is usually fun to putt around in, but operating a clutch after running 26.2 miles is kind of like medieval torture. My wife refused to let me go alone so I had to enlist my daughter, Danielle, and her husband, Adam, to drive me there. This will be my 3rd state so that means only 47 more to go. Yippee.

Awesome goal Tim! I made a goal of running a mud run in a month and I thought that would be tough. You are an inspiration and I can’t wait to see how everything goes!
