Mr. 1124,

I just looked at the Cleveland Marathon website which informed me, via it’s countdown clock, that Sunday’s race is only 1 day, 11 hours, 20 minutes and some odd seconds away. Which means it’s about the time I start getting tense. Even though I’m by no means a serious runner, I still get excited (and anxious) whenever a race is coming up. After all, I’ve spent the past four months training for this.

Today I went downtown to the marathon expo to pick up my free stuff, along with my number and timing chip. I’ll be sporting #1124 on Sunday, in case anyone is out there watching. The forecast for Sunday, unfortunately, is calling for a 50% chance of showers. I don’t mind the mid 50s high, in fact, I actually like that. I would just rather avoid any sort of rain. But it’s not the end of the world. It’s better than 80 degrees and sunny.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer has actually done some very good coverage of the race through the week, which you can find here. It was interesting to read about how last year’s marathon pumped an estimated $12 million into the local economy. You think with that kind of an impact, it would get a little more attention than it does.
