As some readers know, the maths are not a strong suit around Team BHI headquarters. But let me see if this is correct. Today's date is Sept. 19. The Akron Marathon is Sept. 29. Simple subtraction: 29 - 19 = 10.
(Author checks arithmetic against calculator. Verifies correct answer.)
Yes, that means there are 10 days until our relay race.
Holy Jesus Toast!
That's not long, folks. In fact, that's only a week and a half to get these legs in proper condition. Instead of doing push-ups, maybe we should try running.
Let's face it, though, there's going to be a lot of walking for certain members of the Booze Hounds Relay Team. And that's OK. We're in it for the free stuff, which actually costs $40 per person.
My sole goal is to get that (here comes that number again) 10-year commemorative medal. My secondary objective is to use this race as a catapult into consistent winter running. (Yikes! Already?)
Mrs. Viper has already broached the subject of maybe entering a Turkey Trot this fall. And my brain keeps tripping on the idea of maybe running the Cleveland Marathon next May. But that's a lot of maybes.
Do NOT call me, "maybe."
