Dear #WhatHill-

I am BACK.

You keep trying to beat me down. You keep trying to get me to say you are not worth it.

But you are.

I am back as the returning vet to the 2016 Seattle Marathon Ambassadors. IF you have read my blog for any length of

time; you know this is one of my favorite races. It is also such a challenging course. It is also ran by a group that is dedicated to running a top notch event for runners (even when its 23 or so degrees at the start).

And there is

#whathill

If you have ran the event you know. It comes right around the mile 8 mark in the half. You turn the corner coming off of the amazing Lake Washington; you are hitting your groove.

And then smack.

It hits you like a ton of bricks.

It goes straight up.

Like a brick wall.

Reminding you that this course is not that easy.

But it is also quite tough.

So Thanksgiving weekend, #Whathill and I get to tango again, and my entire goal is to be ready for it. I was hoping for a PR last year but it did not happen. This year; I want to finish what I started.

And Seattle is the best place to do it.

#Whathill,
I am coming for you. This time, it will be mile 18 something as I am running the full and shooting to beat my last dance in Seattle.

And I can’t wait.
