"I think I've recommended the Big Sur Marathon about a dozen times here. It's my favorite. I am aware that there are some good ones I haven't done yet, though.

hey Jerry, I just started following you on Twitter. I see we are sympatico on many areas. I was also thinking about how much I've enjoyed your poems here, and seeing you're a Beatles fan, I thought I'd share one of our more popular discussions from way back
Was just reading over some previous conversation on Diabetics who run Marathons - I think Inspirational Badass would be a good term - I know you've helped me along the way, which I greatly appreciate. Hope to see you at IMAZ (still not sure of my plans - hopefully today).
Thanks for the insight and info, Jerry! Yes, I've not been blogging much here or on my blog, but have been training and participating in a mentor group on beginner triathlete.

Are you doing the Carlsbad marathon in Feb? Guy I talked to at insulindependence suggested that. I'll check into team wild as well.
Hey Jerry. I see that you are involved w/ triabetes/insulin dependence. Has that been a good experience for you? I'm considering becoming involved or maybe even being a team captain if that is the need.
