I've got old hamstrings in a young hamstrings game. But I do love training for a marathon. And I'm crazy for a finish line.
This year Papa Dog, training through an IT Band injury, poor thing, and I are going to try to raise some dollars and cents as we gear up for the Austin Marathon on February 20th. We were inspired, as in all things, by the Lion Heart over at The Eyes of my Eyes. Any money raised on behalf of our run will go to Ethiopia Reads, the blanket nonprofit supporting the Tesfa school.
If you can, please consider contributing whatever feels right and comfortable. (Oh hell, even if it hurts a little.)
