45 minutes of walking with Lucy. Getting ready for the Moody Two. At The Double I was a Course Marshal but Bob has promoted me to Race Director. At least I am intimately familiar with the course having raced it many times at the Sunday Runners World Fun Runs back in the 1970's and 80's. Back then it was part of the 5 or 6 mile courses.

Worked the Double with the course monitors. It rained on and off. The wind gusted at times. It generally went well. Runners seemed to be enjoying the event despite the wet conditions. I never saw the start or finish. That's the life of a junior course marshal. My cell phone rang more times in three hours than it had all year. Saw Bill Rodgers run by three times. First time I had seen him in person since Runners Den in 1982 when we were both fast (with him being very fast). Good work by my team (WVJS), Louis Kao's team and the Pleasanton Police. Richard Stiller 12/23/12 6:01 pmThanks Rich, you guys did a great job and in that weather!!!!!! Talk soon.... Bob Anderson 12/23/12 7:10 pm Bob, we were glad to help. Let me know when things settle down after Xmas and we can have lunch. My treat. Richard Stiller 12/23/12 7:14 pm
I'm up and sipping coffee. Lucy my slumbering Golden Retriever is looking at me like "What the heck." It's 4 AM! Be heading out to rendezvous with some of the course monitors. Then we'll drive to Pleasanton. Since we're the out on the course and away from the finish line we won't see many of you complete the double. Not if we're doing our jobs.
