Dick Pond Racing
Race that's calling my name:
London and Japan
I run because:
It’s my addiction! I run because my best friends are my running friends, and I want to spend time with them. I run to stay physically and mentally fit. I run to be an example to my children. I run to encourage others to engage in physical activity. I run to share my knowledge and expertise with the people I mentor. I run to compete. I run because I love to.

Make sure to read in detail all the guidelines for the race. There were so many this year that it added stress. Give yourself enough time to get to your corral. We went through 4 checkpoints. Make sure to carry your own fuel. Be aware bathrooms could be located 3 blocks off the course…the one at mile 18 was far…lost about 5 minutes. Enjoy the people and the course. Check the course map out ahead of time to find landmarks. Also, there’s entertainment throughout the course, but it may be set back from the course. If you hear drums, music, etc…look for it so you don’t miss it. Be aware you’ll have several out and backs so you turn around in the road to go back. At one point, you’ll see the elites running towards you.
