A few days later, I was interviewed by a Trib reporter. After the interview was over, my head was swimming with memories of marathons past. I think it was at that moment that I decided to throw caution to the wind and start a nine week crash course training for the marathon. I'm still hanging in there with less that four weeks to go.
Yesterday, my profile was posted in the Trib on-line. You can read the whole thing here.

One of the highlights was that I was able to get in a mention of our newly formed running club "Wurst Running Club Ever" and our Pint Night runs at Fleet Feet. We are becoming famous. My seven year old nephew even knows about our club now after reading the article. He even got the play on the word "wurst" right away. I guess great minds think alike!
So, there you have it, my 15 minutes of running fame. Hopefully, the next time my name is in the Tribune is when it's in the list of all marathon finishers on Monday, October 14th!
