The Race Report

Nope.  This is not another boring account of any marathon training schedules.  In fact, I haven’t run in many weeks.

And nope.  This is not about the weather. Because the weather is always..are you ready for a shocker?  SUNNY, SUNNY, SUNNY.  Don’t be jealous.  But it’s sorta like a weather report

I decided I will start a new column named “The Race Report,” which will report, at the current country I’m in, what race most people think I am  at a given time.  I will base my report on whatever consensus I get at a specific time.

HALFER in Bali – Don’t ask me why.
