The Pf Changs Rock n Roll Marathon is this weekend in Phoenix. Even though I'm not running it, I'm excited because the Expo is awesome. I take a long lunch, ride the metro down to the convention center and spend the next hour walking all the aisles and seeing all the cool stuff. I can't wait.
Yesterday I went to lunch with Coach Dean and I was telling him I was going to watch the marathon at 32nd and Camelback and had never seen elite runners before, outside of TV. Dean told me about the opportunities he's had to be on the press truck with his friend Joe English. One thing lead to another and Dean called Joe to see if he could get us press passes to be on the press truck. Joe, knowing the race director got a YES answer a couple hours later. I get to watch the marathon in the press truck that drives in front of the lead elite runners. How cool is that!
Coach Dean, in order to get these passes, needs to do a favor for Joe...interview Kara Goucher, who is running the half. At this point I'm hardly able to contain my excitement. I already have a commitment on Saturday but am working to change it so I too can go to the interview with Kara. Regardless Coach Dean has asked me to help put together questions. Are there any questions you would want to ask Kara?
