Exactly the same

There's a marathon coming up in less than two weeks and due to illness and other factors I figure I will have run about 15 miles total in the four weeks prior to the event. That's not a good training plan. But that's the way the cookie is crumbling this time.

Anyway, there was an interesting father/son exchange last night while we were going for a ride in the camper. I was talking to Gary about plans for the marathon weekend and Hank overheard the discussion:

"So Dad? Is a marathon pretty much just like a swim meet?"

"Yeah. It's exactly like a swim meet but without all the kids asking their parents for cash every 10 minutes."
