I'm going to be a Fred's Team mentor this year! This means that I will be doing all the things I usually do during Fred's Team runs -- tell people to listen to the coaches' advice, offer encouragement, and impart any wisdom I've gleaned from having run the marathon 5 times -- officially! Huzzah!
The only bad part is I have to write a bio. I've always hated writing bios.
The funny part of it is, one of the things we're supposed to do, as the mentor letter says (to paraphrase), is to occassionally slow down and spend time with the slower runners. Slow down? I AM one of the slower runners. If I were to slow down any more, I'd be walking!
