Perry, I know you have trained very hard and I am sure you will do great. Best of Luck!

Thanks John! And thanks for the great sign. Shannon actually really likes it and is looking forward to holding it up during this weekend’s marathon. Talk to you soon. Keep up the training. Perhaps we can run together in Chicago.

oh sweet, i knew stuffing myself with carbs was a bad idea…although my friends advised me to always stock up a few days before…so interesting

Good list ! The training is all behind you now, with just the eating ahead.

Here’s another perspective on marathon training which you might enjoy.

“Final week: Aches all over. No sleep. Fat stomach. Tired legs. No chance. Congratulations – your physical and mental preparation are now complete. You’re ready to run !”

Have a great race. You’ve come this far – the rest will be easy.

This is crazy! Joggling? I had never heard of it, but I imagine it requires the utmost in concentration. I can’t juggle 3 balls. Much less run and juggle! I think it would also be important to avoid: crack cocaine, doing massive upper body workouts the night before, drinking green tea lattes, and reading Tolstoy! Seriously, I agree with the steps listed, but sarcasm reared it’s ugly head and I felt compelled, check out my blog for more. Sorry if this offended.

Lots of concentration until you know how to do it. You have to look thru the pattern and let the balls go where they want. It’s not about throwing and catching, it’s more about gently gliding the objects to the place they want to go.

Thanks for the comments. Your post on the death of Chewie was “touching” Keep up the great work!

How did your race go? Toronto was duly humbled, I hope.
