As this gets published I am sitting on a plane headed for what, in all likelihood, is the next to last marathon of my life. I have run 26.2 miles 5 times but only once in an official marathon. After this weekend, I think the only other marathon I would do is New York, because, well, it is New York. I am in the last class of people guaranteed entry under the three strikes and you are in policy, so I am guaranteed entry in either, 2012, 2013 or 2014. After that, I am done. Running is not like swimming or cycling. It really takes work so I will cut back to 13 miles and less. But, in no way does that mean I quit exercising. That is a life long pursuit for me.
