First -- I want to thank Mary & Picasso (who may be a ... cat? dog? rat? fish?) for sending me this awesome homemade button to wear on Sunday's race. It says "HAVE I TOLD YOU ABOUT MY SPORTS RELATED INJURY?" and has a photo of my tibia fracture. I shall wear it with honor and I'm sure it will start many a wonderful conversation.

Sunday is The Big Race -- well, for me it's the big race, ten miles through the streets of Philadelphia, though I saw someone on the Internet call it "a good beginner distance". Yikes. Anyway, the race starts at 8:00 AM and if my leg doesn't break or my heart give out, I'm expecting to be finished by 10 or so ...
If you're in Philly and are watching the race
I'm having my position posted automatically to Facebook because I figure that people on Facebook have signed up for that sort of annoyance, so if you're on your porch stoop and want to watch me stagger past, you can check there to see where I am. And if we're not "friends" on FB already, please feel free to add me (you can unfriend me on Monday if I'm not interesting).
I think that's about it for the not-a-fitness-blog shiznit. I'll have an update about Trillian playing Brutus and how cool it was.
I should have a photo of trillian_stars as Brutus carrying a sword, right? At the Battle of Philippi. Right?
Anyway -- have a swell day. I'm going to bed.

That's a great photo! Have a great, safe, and painless run.
Yes! Imagine people all over the world from 8-10 am EDT punching their fists in the air and chanting "CAS-SI-DY! CAS-SI-DY!" at an embarrassing volume! Because we're lining the course in spirit.
You look fantastic. Good luck and be safe!
