Forth now, and fear no darkness!

The title is a quote from The Lord of the Rings that I've always liked. It's from the third part, The Return of the King. It was also used in Peter Jackson's adaptation, but slightly altered: "Forth, and fear no darkness!"

Anyway, I came across a video just today that I really like. It's by the same guy who made the "Why Do You Run?" video. Here it is (click View Original Post if you are reading this on Facebook):

So, tonight, we drive to my parents' house near Louisville, where we'll spend the night before flying out of Louisville tomorrow morning. The weather forecast still looks favorable, although the chance of rain has gone up considerably. In fact, there's a fair chance of rain the whole we'll be there. Thanks, Boston! :-P

I've added a box to the sidebar with my bib # and the link if anyone is bored and wants to track me on Monday. This is really a lot of fun to do, especially if you know more than one person running. Boston has a great tracking system, with updates every 5K. Trust me, between that and watching the live streaming Universal Sports coverage online, it's kept me glued to my computer for hours on each of the past few Patriots' Days. If you're seeing this in a reader or Facebook, my bib # is 14899. Go to on Marathon Monday for race tracking. There are also text updates available if you want to sign up for that (these are less frequent).

Thanks for the bib #! I'll be tracking you Monday and will be adequately distracted all day!

Run strong and enjoy this to the hilt!!

Congrats on a great race! (Followed your bib number online). Happy to see a fellow Bloomington runner rock it out!
