Enter our first-ever LA Marathon t-shirt design competition at 99designs.com for the chance to have your shirt printed and sold at the event. In addition, we’re offering $295 cash to the winner of the contest. The competition is open now and we’ll accept designs until January 31st.

Game time

Four months of training, and now it’s time for the rubber to hit the road. As you can see, I have everything laid out for the early morning wake up call. The reason my numbers aren’t pinned on my shirt is because I’m still waffling on my choice of layers. The forecast is calling for 33 degrees and clear at start time, with temps rising to about 40 at noon. Chilly! Do I go with a ski hat or a baseball hat? Wear the old sweatshirt I brought and discard it at mile 2? How strong will the wind be? Do I throw a garbage bag on? This will all come down to a game-time decision.

I’ve signed up for the 3:55 pace group to ensure that I don’t go out too fast, which I’ve been guilty of in the past. Besides, if I’m not constantly checking my watch, I can enjoy the scenery and the experience.

If any of you are running the Long Beach Marathon tomorrow, look for our own Stacy Embretson. She was in the Expo at the LA Marathon booth and will be running the event as well.

Russ and I had another enjoyable day in the Chicago Expo meeting participants from all over the world, but it was exhausting. So I’m looking forward to a good night’s sleep.

I’ll report back after the race.
