26 Miles and 140 Characters of Pain

On Monday morning at 10:00 AM, the gun will fire on the 112th Boston Marathon. I'll be there running with friend and friend of the BPP Amby Burfoot, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of his Boston win in 1968.

Marathons are 26.2 Miles. My longest run in five months is 12 miles. It's going to be ugly. I'm going to try and Twitter my misery every mile, so keep an eye on our Twitter feed on the right hand side of this page.
