Cleveland Marathon Amber Ale! Have it brewed by June (better make it three batches, just to be sure) then invite us free-loading beer-drinking runners over and we'll shoot snot rockets all over your new backyard patio, discuss how you BQ'd at Cleveland, and take up a collection to pay your bus fare (third class) to Boston!

I'm in!

Bet you do Cleveland in 3 and a half or under!

Good luck. A friend of mine BQ'd in Cleveland this year. It's possible. I hear the Lake Erie headwind during the second half is a bitch. I'll probably be doing the half. Cheers!

Well, good luck! Hopefully we have a short winter and early spring or our May marathons could need some last minute goal engineering.

PF-- I've heard it's the ever-popular "flat & fast," with minimal grades. All of which bodes well for my BQ attempt.

GQH-- Bet you do Cleveland in 3 and a half or under! Well, thanks for the vote of confidence, but I think that's a WEE bit ambitious. :) Right now I'm sticking with 3:45:59.

And I'll let Great Lakes Brewing do the brewing for me. I think a large amount of Burning River Pale Ale is in order.

Viper-- The wind off Lake Erie can't be any worse than the wind at the crest of the Ambassador Bridge or the barren plains of Belle Isle. I'll be ready.

Nitmos-- Dude. Short winter? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Have you looked outside lately? :)

Good luck in Cleveland! I have done it last 2 years and plan to be there again in '09.
