Two weeks from today, I will run my third marathon.

That weekend will also be the first anniversary of my first marathon.

It was a great day and I learned a ton: especially that Salt Stick caps rock.

One cool thing is that I drive by the 5.7 to 6.5 and 18.8 to 19.6 sections of that two-loop, marathon course each day when I drive to work.  The first section was at a comfortable 8:34 pace…the second was a grueling, cramps-in-both-calves, when-will-this-end, what-did-I-get-myself-into, 13:00+ pace.  I eventually recovered – due to said Salt Stick caps – and finished with a respectable 4:05:05 time.  Every morning, driving by that section of 101 is a reminder of my first 26.2, my love of running, and to never “long run” without Salt Stick caps.

I saw this tweet this morning – WOW:
