Sorry about not being on line much, my brother died the beginning of the month (Aug.) Just try to catch my breath. (Kind of takes it out you've when you loose family member)

With that being said if I can help people with direction of hotel information just let me known.

Just update, as of this week 10-Jun 2013, everything but the Full marathon are sold out. Not sure where they are on the Full marathon. They sold out a full month ahead of time this year.

The Base holds a "Preq- 1/2 marathon" every year, I ran that Saturday, the nice thing is it covers the back part of full marathon.(miles 12-21) What is nice is they re-pave most of the roads. Real nice for running.

I'm back on line sorry about that. My brother was in the hospital, they did not think he would be going home this time :-( But HE is home, and doing better, just was not his time, (which I glad about )
Little news on AFM, the I believe as of today (21-May) the 1/2 and the 10K are sold out. There are still some opening for the full.

Side note, if you know anyone who wants to run this they should do it this year. With all the budget cut, not too sure if there will be AFM next year. (I REALLY REALLY hope I'm wrong about that)
If your not training, you need to start laying down some miles now, the weather is right.

This was my first half too -- it's awesome! Not a huge amount of hills and there are sections of shade. Love the organization of this race -- better than Disney I think.

Believe.

Each day is a new beginning.

Don't dream it. Live it.

Hi Tom --

I'm back from the past....I've been off SP for awhile -- life got in the way. I had some surgery in January and just this morning went for a walk with bursts of running enthusiasm. :) C25K will start in 2 weeks (giving my body time to get back to the groove). I am doing USAF Half again this year (third time). I have alot of Disney peeps coming this year too. I'd like to see Galloway speak.

Thank you for always being so generous with your expertise :)

Most of the time the speakers do free sessions at the expo each day, Plus they speak at the breakfast Friday morning.

I saw that Galloway would be speaking, I think I'd like to hear him--most of my training is done in walk/run ratios. He should be interesting.

Update 3-Mar 2013 the guess speaker this year is Jeff Galloway, I know he is speaking at the Friday morning breakfast, most likely he will do presentation during the Expo. This is one of those people I'm really looking forward to see.

Tom, I will be unable to run AFM this year as the Quad Cities Marathon is the same weekend. I am bummed out about this but QCM is our local event and I want to support it as much as I can.

Folks, Tom is very knowledgeable with everything AFM including every crack in the race course pavement. Come to him at any time for questions.

Thank you, Tom, for being such a valuable leader with a wealth of info.

best wishes everyone and HAPPY RUNNING!

OK, This is the Kick off message for 2013 AFM (Air Force Marathon) 17-Sep. 2013. My name is Tom, I live here in Dayton. This will be my 3rd year to run the AFM, so if you have questions I should be able to help. If you are thinking about a first marathon (or 1/2 or 10K) this is nice starter marathon course, most of the course if flat, there are couple of rolling hills.
I've been involed with this marathon for four years, the weather has been good the last 4 year
50 - 75 degrees on marathon day.

For now, just drop by and introduce yourself.
Tom
