Thanks, Tim. I freaked out today when I saw this:<br><span style="font-family:Arial;"><b>Attention Full Marathoners:</b></span> <span style="font-family:Arial;"><span style="font-size:small;">Due to the heavy rains we have had this winter, four of our normally dry ravines are still running across the first two miles of the marathon route. Right now the forecast is for rain today and clear sunny weather Saturday and Sunday. Currently the ravines are passable, however you will get your feet wet unless you are a really good long jumper. It is not a serious hazard, just a trickle of water, but up to 6 inches deep. Please use caution. <b>IF</b> we get a lot more rain today, we may have to change the course in which case the mileage will be correct, and your result, if you qualify for Boston, will be accepted by the BAA. Changing the start is very unlikely, but I want you to know in advance that it is a slight possibility. You will still be starting the alternate marathon course on Peralta Trail, but at a different point. We will do our very best to get you from start to finish safely. Thanks for your understanding. Based on the changing forecast, or the weather, I will update this message. - Grady McEachern, Race Director.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:Arial;">When I checked, at least they only had 1/3 inch of rain today.</span>

Sound, STOP that! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> You can't puke <i>and</i> have fun.<br><br>
Run hard ... if you feel like it. Watch out, small children.

... in a kilt (?)<br><br>
From <i>Feet in the Clouds: A Tale of Fell Running and Obsession:</i> <span style="font-size:xx-small;">Thank you, FF.</span>Apparently McGregor's brother tried to hold him back by grabbing his kilt, which duly fell off. Thereafter, fell runners ran naked.<br><br>
Few early fell runners wore anything on their feet. No wonder they were called "foote races." Ouch.<br><br>
Have a bonny race. <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_salut.gif">

The quality of an off-road race is improved dramatically by having serious mud, and water crossings of at least ankle depth. I hope you get a high quality outing.<br><br>
Good luck to all the weekend racers.
