The Atlanta Journal-Constitution<br>
The countdown is on for Sunday’s ING Georgia Marathon and Half Marathon.<br>
Every serious marathoner has a story that speaks to their love or respect for running. Here are four participants in Sunday’ run. Race start time is 7 a.m. Runner’s are staggered by estimated finish times. Take note of their bib number, follow the map on the race website and cheer them on.<br><b>Rendell Jackson, 33, Atlanta</b><br><b>Race:</b> Half marathon<br><b>Running Story:</b> Students at King Middle School set the stage for Jackson’s half marathon run. The physical education teacher guided 170 students as they logged 12 running miles in ING’s Run for Something Better Program.<br>
The program, for middle school students in Atlanta and Dekalb, was set up to help children become more physically fit by running the distance of a half marathon over nine weeks time. Atlanta Falcon Keith Brooking will lead nearly 400 middle schoolers from the program on the final 1.1 mile at the ING race.<br>
“I want to run to further inspire them and lead by example,” said Jackson. The former CFL and Arena football player said any run over 200 meters is a stretch for him.<br><b>Cheer him on:</b> His bib number is 20433. At Seven minutes per mile Jackson will likely reach his halfway point at the Carter Center between 7:45 and 8 a.m. and finish the race about 8:30 or 8:45 a.m.<br><b>Sherry Coulombe, 30, Dacula</b><br><b>Race:</b> Half marathon<br><b>Running story:</b> When it comes to endurance, The Dyer Elementary School teacher is well-equipped. She started running after gastric bypass surgery in 2003, when her weight had reached nearly 350 pounds. Now she competes in triathlons and is 170 pounds lighter.<br>
“Running is something I never thought I’d be able to do,” she said. “When I first started I didn’t think I could get to a half mile but I made it to two miles.“<br>
Coulombe decided to change her lifestyle through exercise after the surgery. She ran the Strong Legs 10K in November 2004. And jumped to the Chicago Marathon in 2006. “I got that runner’s high and from that moment on I felt, if I can do a 10K, what else can I do,” she said.<br>
She can do triathlons. Her most recent was Ironman Florida last November, where she swam 2.4 miles, biked 112 miles and ran 26.2.<br><b>Cheer her on:</b> Her bib number is 18388. Running 10 1/2 to 11-minute miles, Coulombe should reach Carter Center just past mile 6 between 8 and 8:15 a.m. and finish the race about 9:15or 9:30 a.m.<br><b>Todd Sherwood, 50, Anchorage, AK</b> <b>Race:</b> Marathon<br><b>Running story:</b> Adjusting to Atlanta’s hilly unfamiliar streets should be a piece of cake for Sherwood. He and his 18-year-old daughter have jogged along Anchorage running trails at night with flashlights, he said.<br>
And there’s the bears to think about.<br>
“I have personally had to do a 180 on a running trail in an Anchorage park because a black bear stepped into my path,” said Sherwood, a municipal attorney for the North Slope Borough in Alaska.<br>
He’s currently on active duty as a Judge Advocate General (a military attorney known as a JAG) at Tyndall Air Force Base near Panama City, Fla.<br>
When Sherwood learned about his 60-day assignment, he searched the internet for marathons in close proximity. In April he plans to compete in the Beach Blast Triathlon in Mexico Beach, Florida.<br>
Sherwood started running six years ago. He runs year round, often in Alaska’s snowy climate. “Running on fresh snow is like beach sand,” he said. Some folks put spikes on the shows to manage icy terrain, he said.<br><b>Cheer him on:</b> His bib number is 1682. Sherwood’s

Ahhh Tithers, that's a lot of pressure, you need to achieve perfect timing.<br>
Crossing the start line at a specific time, not running too fast, not running too slow, not forgetting to bring your number...

I have faith in Snooze....he is, afterall, the PACEMASTER! Once in a race we hit the EXACT same split (down to the second) for three miles in a row and then we dropped our pace for each subsequent mile for the entire half marathon....without a Garmin!<br><br><br><br><i>of course, we also ran uphill both ways on an out and back course, barefoot, and in torrential downpour! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"></i>

That's exactly the timing we talked about last night.<br><br>
No pressure for you. If you pushed it I'm betting you could go sub 2:10.<br><br>

<img alt="huh.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif"> I didn't jinx either of you.<br>
Should I be mean instead? I'm not good at being mean.<br>
Especially when I know how awesome the racer is who's doubting herself!!!
