MCM 2018/T-Minus 6: Sunday

I am writing this at just after 8:00 p.m. on the last Sunday  night before the Marine Corps Marathon.

This blog post will be the most significant thing I have accomplished today in preparation for the MCM. I didn’t run today because I am still healing my sore right thigh. I just came from outside and saw the full moon. Kind of sad that I didn’t run this morning; it would have been nice to get one more full moon run in before the MCM.

I did buy my new shoes yesterday; not the same exact shoe, but still stability and at a deep discount. Also the only shoe from Asics in a Size 12. Never let great become the enemy of good…or something.

As of 8:00 p.m., no offers to be my roommate for MCM Weekend. So be it. Gonna be an expensive MCM weekend.

Since March I have been growing a beard for the MCM. I trimmed it last week for a work function, and it doesn’t look like it will be a big-ass healthy looking beard for next Sunday. Regardless, it’s coming off next Sunday…a few hours after I cross the finish line of course.

I wish I could post a YouTube video of that clip from Forrest Gump, when Forrest, after the unexpected departure of his long-time love Jenny, decides to go for a little run….for no particular reason. I need to kind of remember that clip…something to focus on for this last week. My Songs of the Day come from that clip:

“Running on Empty”/Jackson Browne

“It Keeps You Running”/Michael McDonald

“Go Your Own Way”/Fleetwood Mac

“On the Road Again”/Willie Nelson

“Against the Wind”/Bob Seger
