|Poley needs another medal|
I don't want to say I'm going to train for a PR. The more time goes on, the more I wonder if my "fast" days are behind me. If they are, I'm OK with it. I run for me and my health, not necessarily to best myself each time. That's the joy of running. You get out of it what you want. I know regardless of how I train, I'll be faster this year than last (unless someone else needs 1.5 liters of bone marrow a month before). But it won't be nearly as eventful as the last race.
At this point, I feel like this race is just part of me. It's something I do every year and will continue to do as long as my body is able. We've got it down to a science, too, in terms of housing, set up and logistics. If I was able to complete a marathon after a bone marrow donation, I'm confident I can keep doing this for years to come.
Anyone else want to join? You can't beat a marathon for $46, and here are my other reasons why this race rocks. See you in April maybe?
