Witness the fitness

Good luck to my brothers and sisters running the NYC Marathon this weekend!

(And to the wife, who is going to see Paul Weller at the Apollo.)

Yes, my wife is flying into New York on a huge travel weekend to the City. Am I nervous? You bet. But it's Paul Weller. At the Apollo. I did not want to stand in the way of that.

At least, not when I thought she would be driving there.

The Big Question: Will I apply for NYC 2011? I suggested on the day after the big race in 2006 that I might want to try again in five years. I even had two aborted attempts in 2008 and 2009 to get back. Should I apply? I do not forget how difficult training was. And that was with an infant and a three year-old. The demands today are greater, not less.

But this is all about me, right? I mean, any marathon has to be.

Distance: 3.25 miles
Temperature: 39ยบ
Weather: wet and yes, a tiny bit of snow
Weight: 164 lbs.
