Today my posse will show up at my house in a few minutes and we will drive down to Sports Backers Stadium in my beige mini-van. Our destination won't be realized until November 12, 2011 when we stand at the start of the Richmond Marathon.
Today marks the first official day of marathon training. We will meet the coaches and other participants for Sports Backers MTT 2011. While only about 300 (plus or minus) of the 1100 MTT participants will be part of the SUNDAY FUNDAY crowd, it's still interesting to think about this many people moving toward the same destination.
The large team is broken down into color group "sub teams" of about 70 - 100, and the GBAs are going to be on Team YELLOW this year.
I believe that good things are bound to happen whenever you put this many runners together in one place....
Runners are weird...
...and I am a runner.
