I bit the bullet and signed up for the Marine Corp Marathon. $ 94!!
This is an expensive training run for JFK. Ugly course, over sold, but receiving the medal from a Marine next to the Iwo Jima Memorial is priceless.
Over the last few years Coach, Ma, and I have had a tradition of a Sunday night dinner atop the Holiday Inn. Lousy race but followed by Good Food and Great Company, who could ask for anything more.
