Viva Sevilla!

Wow, those three weeks rolled by at warp it already time for another marathon?  Actually, yes!  Marathon Dos takes me to sunny Seville, Spain. 

What can I tell you about this race?  Sunday, the 19th, is race day with a not-so-early 9:30 AM start.  Temps at the race start should be 36 F with an expected temperature of  68 F at the finish line. An impressive start and finish at the Seville Olympic Stadium, with a winding urban circuit route. 

This weekend's road crew consists of the Budman! Thanks, sweetheart!

Bags are packed, running gear collected, and boarding passes in hand.  A couple of logistical challenges did surface in simply getting to Seville:  (1)  no direct flight from LHR, so flying to Madrid, and then on to Seville, which is about 6 hours of travel time, and (2)  we narrowly avoided the Iberia pilots strike (thankfully, am flying BA codeshare so my flight was NOT cancelled).  I was starting to get a visual of planes, trains, and automobiles.  Catastrophe averted.

Catch you on the flip side of 26.2 miles.
