Pre-race routine:

I had originally planned to do this as part of a brick on Thursday, but did not get to the run that day, so it became my brick on Saturday instead.
Event warmup:

I guess 100+ miles on the bike counts as a warmup.

I didn't know Christine (Lucy), but she appeared frequently in the forums, and her commentary was always fun and friendly. I was shocked when she became so seriously ill...and she was still posting. I cried a lot when I heard she had died. I just couldn't believe it. I had never met her, but I felt like she was a friend. So, I am happy and honored to participate in this annual run in her honor. I just spent some quiet time on the treadmill thinking about how lucky I am to do what I do. Thanks, Christine.

A little rewriting of William Blake's poem, The [Butter]fly

Little [butter]fly
Thy summer's play
My thoughtless hand
Has brushed away.

Am not I
A [butter]fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink and sing,
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength and breath
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy [butter]fly,
If I live,
Or if I die?
