On your mark…
The Kiawah Marathon is about to start. This place is alive with exclusive, gated community excitement.
Right now, I’m probably standing on the pavement on Kiawah Island, freezing my buttocks off in runner short shorts awaiting the starting pistol. Yes, I’m nervous, but I’m sure I also just want to get going already.
Though I’m sure I have not done it, this is the one opportunity for the hoi polloi to urinate publically in the middle of an upscale resort with impunity. This is just one of the reasons why I love the running sub-culture.
Thanks everyone for the support and encouragement. Boston or not, it’s meant a great deal to me. I’ll see you on the flip-side.
My good friend Jason Chehoski will take over blogging for a while…
Jason says “We are up and running, no pun intended. The latest update is promising including a good bowel movement and plenty of fluids. My personal marathon will see if I can chew the same piece of gum the entire race. Local Kiawah weather shows a temperature a brisk 20 degrees. Forecast is sunny with a high of 54. “
