Guest blogger Liz: Run for Steve update

Hi, everybody -- just checking in ahead of the race for Steve. There are only four months remaining for those of us planning to run. With the weather hopefully cooling off, it's time to talk about training.

The first thing to decide is which race you will run. There is a full marathon (26.2 miles), a half marathon (13.1), and a relay, which would be 26.2 miles divided among five runners. We are building at least one relay team, so if you're interested in joining please e-mail

If you're running the full or half marathon be sure to register as quickly as possible because this event WILL sell out.

Now for a little housekeeping:

1. We are still trying to come up with a name for our team. Please e-mail your ideas. Steve will be choosing his favorite. Once a name has been determined, we will order team shirts.

2. In order to place the order for team shirts, we need to have an idea about how many shirts need to be ordered. If you are planning to run, please send an e-mail with your name and size. We will let you know how much each shirt will cost.

While you're training, be sure to stretch, drink plenty of water and increase your mileage gradually. If you would like to read more about training you can visit:
