Last Sunday I did spend another fall day in Philadelphia.  I ran the Philadelphia Marathon for the seventh time.  The weather was great, the crowd and the vibes were terrific.

Thirty thousand runners all headed in the same direction with the same goal and that is an amazing source of energy. We were grouped according to our predicted finishing times and wisely I started with the last and slowest group.

I can’t explain it but the payoff crossing the finish line is more than worth the price of admission.  I heard a quote and I don’t know where it comes from but here it is: ” If you have any questions about yourself that you want answered run a marathon.” Sometimes running 26 miles leads to more questions.  Enjoy the harmonies.  I would love to be in that band.
