Running with Meb and Shalane in Boston

It’s official. Meb will run the Boston Marathon again. As expected, Shalane Flanagan will also run. I’m quite certain the elites from Africa and Europe will also show up too. It’s Boston. It’s the world’s most prestigious marathon!

My left calf hurts. It feels like muscle tenderness and I still expect to run two hours tomorrow, but I decided to rest today. Not even yoga today!

2532. That’s my bib number at the P.F. Chang’s 1/2 Marathon on January 18. I prefer odd numbers, but I also like a 5 and/or a 7 in my bib number. This is a B race (at best) for me so it doesn’t really matter. Besides, I’m hardly superstitious.
