Seabrook Marathizzon - March 17 & 18

Hi Bloggers,

As you may know, the Clear Lake Fitness Club puts on a marathon every year called the Seabrook Lucky Trails Marathon. We've always had a marathon and a halfamarathon a 4-person relay on the Sunday before St. Patrick's Day, and this year there's an additional half marathon on Saturday. There's an article about us and how we rock! in Runner Triathlete News this month, and about how we're giving a bunch of money to the bridge over troubled waters. It's a little less than four weeks away, and this is basically the last long race in the area until October.

So with two days of races, there's even the possibility that you can run both Saturday and Sunday, and then you get a third medal. I'm part of the committee to organize it and the third medal is cool enough that I wish I could do it. Instead I'll be running the first leg of the relay and then working at the finish line, expediting the process, making things go smoothly, awarding medals, karate chopping the bandits right in their necks, "Hayahhh!"

(Just between you and me, we're a little more than 60% full for both days, despite having doubled the number of runners, and there's more than 30 crazy people signed up for both days.)

So come on down and run with us if you want to. There'll be hamburgers and hotdogs and chicken and rice and beans at the end, and I think we've got the nicest race packet I've seen, except for Sunmart. We're giving all the runners, including everybody on the relay teams, a technical shirt, a running hat, and running socks, and some other bridgolatta. All you need to bring are your shorties and you'll be good to go.

I renovated the marathon's website this year, I hope you like it. And there's a form to volunteer that looks just like a regular old form, but I worked real hard on it.

Talk to you later...
Love, Keith.

The website looks great! That was the first thing I noticed when I pulled it up. Looks 100x better than last year! Jamoosh is in for 1/2 and 1/2!
