31 Days o’ Blogging

That’s right.  I’m blogging every day for the next 31 days.  That’ll bring us right up to the marathon –my first marathon since the Richmond marathon almost 20 years ago.  I am not entirely sure that was my last marathon.  I think it was.  It was either that or the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach.
