Runnin' with the BIG DOGS!

More like, the HUGE dogs! Tomorrow, my friend and next door neighbor (and the dad of Meg's BFF) will be running in the Tokyo Marathon!!!! It's his first marathon, and he's been training hard for about 6 mths. His goal is to run it in under 4 hours!!! Can you believe that? 26 miles/41 k in less than four hours!!!

To give you an idea of just how huge this race is, last year the famous Boston Marathon had about 22,000 runners, the Tokyo Marathon is restricted to 30,000! This year, over 220,000 runners applied!!!!!!!!!!!! A group of us will be heading to T-town to cheer him on. Should be an exciting day!
