Michael shoved off on his last 2 miles of training for the Lakefront Marathon last night. Cate rode along on her bike. Would have been nice to wrap up training with Addie in the jogger, but she's not as game for the dark rain run as Cate is. Ok, it was mom who made the call on that.
Now that training is done, for Michael I imagine it's a matter of carbo-loading, weather watching, logistics arranging, handing hammer gel packs to his fans to toss to him at water stops, getting psyched from now until Sunday. And a matter of thanking.
Thanks to all who have supported Michael in so many ways as he's endeavored his 3rd marathon, his second fundraiser for the Special Friends Foundation.
There's still time - the site will be up for a bit. Please send the link to anyone you know with an interest. If you're a local, drop me a line to see where you can station yourself as a cheerleader for Michael on Sunday morning. Or even just drop a comment here to wish him luck. I know he appreciates any and all of the above ways to get involved.
Catch you on the other side of the finish line!
