So it’s 4:32 a.m. and I’m about to head down to the start line of the L.A. Acura Bike Tour to be one of some 20,000 cyclists to ride most of the marathon course in the wee hours of the morn.
And theeeeeeeeen? Then after that 22-mile “warm-up” ride I’m going to head my lunatic self up to the marathon start line as one of its 25,000 entrants and I will commence walking (not running or jogging) the entire course as well. If all goes well I’ll be crossing the finish line somewhere around 3 p.m. If all goes not well… well, you can find out by visiting my Day at the Marathon blog for that you-are-there experience you just can’t get watching the NBC broadcast of the event. I’ll be posting blurry phone-cam pix from the course and expletive-laced audio commentary every step of the way. Well, not every one. Perhaps every couple thousand steps. Yikes!
