Des Moines Marathon Two Years Ago Yesterday

I wore a long-sleeve shirt today for my run for the first time this fall.  On the shirt was "Des Moines Marathon October 18, 2009." A rush of memories came flooding back.  You may remember that last month I posted about the Maui Marathon that we ran two Septembers ago.  Well, the plan to run the Des Moines Marathon came from that race.  We wanted another marathon in a new state (for us) a month away from Maui.  Des Moines was the marathon-that-almost-wasn't for many reasons!  I plan to share the story here later this week, but for now, here is Rick's version of the race.  This marathon is easily the only marathon I really had to want in order to run it.

More later!
