I have just completed ironing words on the shirt I will be wearing in the Chicago Marathon this Sunday.
The front simply says “DAVE.” That’s so as I run, every spectator on the 26.2 mile course will see my name and yell “GO DAVE!” This will hopefully give me the energy I will need to complete the race!
The back says “The rewards of the marathon cannot be measured by a stopwatch.” How true this is. I am not out to win this race. Nor am I out to have a fast time. This is a lifestyle, and my goal is to finish the race comfortably so that I will be able to run the next one. And the next one.
Waddle on my friends!
