Busy September

I finally have the Buckeye Half Marathon & 5K behind me. This was my 6th year as the race director and it has become easier to manage over the years. We had a great turn out and the new course was well received. I have bigger and better plans for 2009...so all of you have one year to train!

The next three weekends are as follows: Sept 14th - Erie Half Marathon, Sept 20th - Chili Bowl 5K timing, Sept 26-27 - Road Runner Akron Marathon. I am on the USATF Womens 8K National Championship race committee. I will be very busy at Akron escorting the Elite 8K Women as well as the Invited Marathon Runners.

Columbus is also on the horizon and I am really looking forward to the new second half of the course. I have always done well at Columbus for some reason, and I have high expectations this year. I am down to my fighting weight as well. I weighed 142-145 pretty much since the Burning River 100 last year. I was still at 142 in April for Boston and Cleveland. I am now at 129 which is my optimal racing weight. I also turned 45 a week ago...so Columbus will by my first 45-49 age group marathon.

OMG!! You weigh as much as I do!! That's not right...

Great race Jim!! I've heard nothing but great things. I thought something might be taken away from the Buckeye since it didn't go through Peninsula, but it was better!!

Great job Jim. All the feedback I heard was very positive.

Thanks again for all of your hard work!
