The blog post today is short because the real news is on Ohio.com and in the Akron Beacon Journal. It's the first story about our progress and spotlights several Blue Line Beginners.

The online story is here: http://www.ohio.com/news/local/after-10-weeks-new-akron-marathon-race-series-hopefuls-share-their-progress-1.771609

Thanks to everyone who responded to my questions about how things are going. I truly hope we inspire a few people who are holding themselves back!
