Send some good thoughts my way Sat. - Adopt a mile.

So Sat. is the BIG day, St. George, Utah marathon (26.2 miles).  I feel ready to go.  I thought a fun way to get my friends involved would be to ask you to adopt a mile.  Miles 18-26 are the tough, brutal miles - duh!  So I am asking that each of you pick a mile.  If things go well, I should be at mile 18 @ 8:27 am mountain time (9:27 am CST) this Sat. Oct. 3rd and @ 26.2 around 10:40 am mountain time (11:40 am CST), if I have a GREAT day.    This is according to my pace chart, and depends upon the race starting on time, and if things go as planned, etc. etc.  If I am on pace at that point, each mile will be around 9:00 min. apart, after mile 18 @ 9:27 CST.   I want specifics (ex. Amy - mile 22, Sarah - mile 18, etc.).  If you have run a marathon previously, I have to ask you to step up and send good thoughts for each of the miles, 18-26 - 9:27 CST - 11:40 CST, or later.  You know exactly what I'm going through so send extra good vibes my way.

You can either list your name and mile under comments here, or you can list them facebook, twitter or you can send me an email.  I am hoping to have a few friends "with me" for each of the final miles.    Will be needing some good thoughts at this point of the race.  Let me know if I can count on you on Sat.

Oh what a fun thing to do! I remember writing up a list of names for each mile and pinnning it to my shirt for my first marathon... seriously I couldn't quit during Uncle Ray's mile right? I mean he was in Iraq.

Good luck this weekend.

Ginny, I'll be more than happy to take a mile. How about #25 if it's not taken yet. If so, just name one...it doesn't matter to me; so glad to be a part to help! GOOD LUCK and take care!!!
