And my trainers keep telling me that I need to stop drinking beer until after the race. :mad:

Dude I'm in the mid of marathon training, I did an 18 miler two weeks ago and had to skip my 20 miler this past weekend due to being sick and a pulled calf that I hurt in a 5K race the weekend before. I'm 34 and I could not even imagine walking at that age much less running at any speed.

I'm planning a fall marathon (Chicago) so I guess I need to up the beer intake now..... Cheers Buster :mug:
Good luck.. Hopefully the weather will be better this year. Last year they had some major problems.
