Final Preparations for Surf City

So, I'm wrapping things up at this late hour for tomorrow's little Half Marathon with about 20,000 of my close friends.

Speaking of close friends, we had a little dinner tonight with some of my Runner' World Forum friends:

And some of my Twitter friends:

(Hey! Who let that old guy in on the right?)

The dinner was to raise funds for Operation Jack. If you haven't already checked out Operation Jack , please do. My pal Sam Felsenfeld is running 60 marathons this year to bring attention in the fight against Autism.

As I mentioned earlier today, I needed to fill out my Half Marthon playlist. Here it is in all it's glory. Don't judge me. I'm trying to match music to the race strategy that I published earlier today:
