Little Rock, Here I Come!

Update: Just received email that LR Marathon IS offering supposed real time tracking on marathontracks.com.  Not sure how up to date it will really be.  But if you are curious, you can apparently follow me there. 5 easy miles this morning and everything feels good, including the right shin.  Whew.  I am SO ready for …
