Ha. You keep this up, I will have to buy a bunch.
Deadesq did give me instructions on how to pull these, I haven’t been able to test it out yet. But it will be very useful in the future too.
Alright--the latest LA Times article is a declaration of war, so to speak.
Frank---I issue the challenge to you now. I will run with you in any marathon, anywhere in the world. If you beat me, I will donate $1000 to Aztlan, or any charity of your choice. I'm sure that the wonderful community of LRC will donate that much again to see this race occur. We must start the race together, and there must be course monitors and video to prove you ran the entire distance. If I beat you...well, I will. So there's that.
Just so you know what you're up against, my last marathon was Boston. Before that, I ran a 3:04 on a course where you recently broke 3 hours by quite a bit. So, you should have little trouble beating me. Consider it easy money. I'm not joking.
By the way, the photos are a bit blurry, so I won't post them here, but you stopped to stretch at the 10K mark in the 2014 LA Marathon, too. I'm shocked....
I'm also not holding my breath that you'll run either Chicago or LA 2020.
