Magic in Jacksonville Kicks Off!

_DSC0269Hello all you wonderful Saltines out there!  I’m writing you from underneath a pile of camera gear in a hotel somewhere in Jacksonville, where over 150 elite runners will be toeing the line tomorrow.  There are many who have already earned their places at the Olympic Trials Marathon in February, but many more who are in their beds now, perhaps worrying that their alarms won’t go off on the day they hope and pray to qualify for the trials.

I’m worried too!  I have to get up at 5 myself so I can bring you their stories, but for now here’s a little taste of what’s coming: _DSC0023 _DSC0047 _DSC0069 _DSC0073 _DSC0244 _DSC0250 _DSC0253 _DSC0254 _DSC0263 _DSC0272 _DSC0294 _DSC0302

Cinnamon made Salty Running, takes lots of pictures and drinks lots of coffee. She has 8 more minutes to knock off her marathon for a 3:40 BQ, and will get there or die trying. Her writing is an eclectic mix of finding wholeness as an average runner, news reporting, curious reactions, satirical humor and more.
