Race Day – Extraterrestrial Full Moon Marathon!

Today is race day! At 8:30pm I’ll be getting on a bus to go out to the Black Mailbox near Area 51, the starting point of my midnight marathon.

I’ve gotten past the Doubty McDoubterson phase, past the stupid excited phase, and am all of the sudden in a serene, zen phase.

With that in mind, I have two things to share. The first is a quote (one of the Runner’s World Daily Kick in the Butt quotes, actually):


Today I run for pure, absolute joy!

Lopez Lomong, U.S. Olympian and Lost Boy from Sudan


and a video:


Good luck to everyone going out there, from the 10k to 51k!
