How about it all you runners?
For a couple weeks I've been hearing sponsored messages from Medtronic on my local NPR station (National Public Radio, for you folks from England, Australia, India, Indonesia, etc) rearding the upcoming Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon in Minneapolis this October. They're encouraging people with implanted medical devices (that's all of us!) to participate. They have a full-length marathon (26.2 miles), a 10-mile run, a kids mini-marathon, and a 1-mile walk. Unfortunately I'll be returning from a family trip the same day as the run, so I can't participate, but I'm wondering if others on this site, especially those who live near Minneapolis-St Paul, might plan to go? I don't run marathons and would have to train hard to get to 10 miles (I'm running 4 miles currently), but I know there are some serious runners on this site. How about it Ridera, Gevans, Mattday, randrews (Rusty) and others -- any interest? Wouldn't it be great fun to have a contingent of folks from this website to participate, all wearing Pacemaker Club t-shirts???
Take care, CathrynB
