    Is it sad that the song made me burst into tears? It’s awesome… I’m so excited + nervous at the same time, it’s a little overwhelming! Good luck next weekend! I hope I get a chance to meet you!

    Hooray for Derek!

    I wish I had girlfriends here I could commiserate with about Chicago! I am so, so nervous but don’t have anyone to talk things through with.

    Did you know runner tracking via text is available now for free? http://www.textinterface.com/pls/text/TF_BACM_DT

    Ahhhh so nervous! :-/

    O good luck Derek that half marathon sounds like so much fun. I have 3 friends running it too. I’m hoping to be able to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February. Maybe Derek can give me some tips?

    I spotted you this morning! Actually, I spotted your sister as I was driving to Blanchard. I was running a much slower 5k and wondered how many miles you ladies were conquering. Good luck in Chicago!

    Good luck Derek! I’m running my first half marathon this weekend too, but it’s tomorrow morning. Although with the time difference between east coast and west coast, our start times will only be about 12 hours apart!

    And really, good luck to *everyone* racing this weekend and next!

    I have a few friends running that race tonight. i thought about running it but hoenstly running at 10 pm is not that appealing to me!!
    go Derek! I am SURE he can break 2.5 hours. If I did it, he can do it! (I am pretty slow!)

    Wow…45,000 runners. And I thought the 18,600 that registered for the Philly Rock n’ Roll half was big!!

    Good luck to your boyfriend on his first half. I read about that one and it sounded fun! My in-laws live down there about an hour from Disney, and if it lined up with a school vacation, I would have considered it. I kind of like the idea of a race that starts at night!

    Your smoothie-in-a-bowl looks delicious. I have never tried Peanut Flour before.

    Derek, best of luck to you. Thank you for supporing the effort to learn more about MS, improve the quality of life for those of us living with the disease & raising awareness.

    You will great, be sure to give it hell. If at any point you find yourself struggling, think of all the people who can not run because of MS. I am cheering for you & you are going to do great!!!
