The way things are moving, it doesn't look like it's going to happen. So the other night I took a little look-see at Active.com to see what athletic events they have scheduled for December the 12th. There's a triathlon in Puerto Rico and there's the White Rock Marathon.
Of course I don't want to run a marathon, but more so, I don't really want to turn 40. Well I should say I really don't want to turn 40 feeling bad about my body, my career and the fact that I'm not in Greece. Committing to run this Marathon on my birthday would solve a few objectives:
I'd have to get in better shape if I trained and ran.
I'd have something to do on my birthday.
I have many friends and family in the Texas.
I'd always be able to say: I ran a marathon on my 40th birthday.
But all that seems kind of boring and common place and a bit like settling.
So I thought a plan where in I device a support team of friends and family to run the marathon relay style with me. Awwww - yeah! Off the top of my head here's few candidates for the relay team:
Then I thought, why not get a celebrity support team? Then I went to Kayak and looked up airfare to Athens.
