T Minus 22 Days

Yes I am getting excited….Can we run the Marathon this Sunday?
On Sunday October 29th I will be running in the Detroit Free Press Marathon.   I want to first thank everyone for their generous support towards the charity cause, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training, and also supporting me with my training.  Your words of encouragement and support have helped me make it this far.   If you are free on the morning of Sunday October 29th I would love to see you on the course supporting me and all my fellow runners. When I see someone that I know cheering along the course it really lifts my spirits.   Plus it is really fun to see the city of Detroit on a fall morning and see how beautiful the city can be.  Here is a link to the web site that has maps of the course:
On the Marathon Course Map there are mile markers along the route.   To make it easier to estimate when and good places you can see me, I have put below time estimates on when I should reach that mile marker.  These times of course are depending on the race starting on time and that I have a good race.  When you look at the map you will also see that the route passes close points multiple times so it is even feasible to see me at one point, go over a block or two and see me again.
Race Start Time: 7:15AM – Actually leave the start line at about 7:25AM due to corrals.
Between Mile marker 8 and 9 Entering the USA from the Windsor Tunnel onto Jefferson Ave. – Between 8:35AM – 8:45AM  (Welcome me back into the country.)
Between Mile marker 10 and 11 near the old Tiger Stadium – 8th Street and Michigan Ave. – Between 9:00AM – 9:10AM
Mile Marker 12 – Between 9:10AM – 9:20AM – Woodward – Fox Theatre Area
Mile Marker 13 – Between 9:19AM – 9:30AM – Near Ford Field – Half Marathon Cut Off Area
Mile Marker 16 – Between 9:46AM – 9:58AM
Mile Marker 21 – Between 10:31AM – 10:45AM
Finish Line Inside Ford Field (Hang out inside and stay warm.) – Between 11:25 AM – 11:35AM
High fives and hugs to all that attend.
