Marine Corp Marathon XXXVI


From Kevin Handly

MCM XXXVI Registration opens Feb. 23, 2011. The race date is Oct. 30. Put both of these dates on your calendars NOW. Registration is expected to close very quickly this year, based on what happened in Boston.

Had the privilege of running a couple of loops around the Boston Common last night with Bill Rodgers, 4-time winner of both the Boston and the New York Marathons. He was giving a bunch of us charity runners some tips on running Boston. What a great guy!

If you want a good general guide to running that is good for your family as well as you to use, I recommend Rodgers’ A Complete Idiot’s Guide to Running. It’s in its 3rd edition, newly out in paperback. Lots of helpful tips and concepts without getting too technical, like so many of the running guides do.

It’s been mighty cold up here training at 5 a.m. in (literally) subzero temps. This Saturday’s long run will be 15 miles. So far no frost bite, no lung bite and no injuries. Extreme caution required, however.

Very pumped for the Annual Team Dykeman MCM event.

Hoo Rah!

  1. I had a very special opportunity today to talk to the Wake Forest ROTARY that meets at the Wakefield Plantation TPC. They gave me 20 minutes of their meeting to talk about Team Dykeman. It was an honor to have that opportunity. I did my very best to show all of the good things that we do. Hopefully i touched a few people today. I thanked all of the Veterans in the room. I hope it went well.
