Los Angeles Marathon 2010 - Cheer for my friend Dave

Los Angeles, FIND THIS MAN!

Find my friend DAVE on Sunday....running the sold out Los Angeles Marathon!

I met Dave at UCLA in 1989. I was the one sleeping in the hall outside Calculus class in Dodd Hall. Darn, over 20 years later and we are still good friends!

Come out and cheer on my friend Dave and thousands of other runners. The LA Marathon has a great new route from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica Pier...it is actually going to pass places where you live and visit! Going to the Sunday Hollywood Farmer's Market? Hang out there between 8:52 and 9:25 am and look for Dave! (edited to add: Okay, the Hollywood Farmer's Market is postponed til after the runners go by (opens 11 am), but you can still go early and cheer on Dave! ;) Are you near the Mormon Temple in West LA? Find Dave between 10:14 and 10:55! See the graph below for times.

Do you like to play Where's Waldo? You can play a live version! Look for my friend Dave (Bib #18870). He trying to break a 4:00 hour marathon time.

Team Dave (crazy-ass friends and family) will be along with course cheering on Dave. We'll be holding Davey-Pops. Don't you want to join the fun?! You can make your own by downloading the PDF here. Yah, we crazy, but when your legs are dying and you are hitting the wall at Mile 21, you need some cheers!

Dave will be wearing a hat, running with a backpack with his special foods and liquids, and a camera to take photos! Bib #18870. Dave is raising money for charity too! Noah's Wish (providing disaster relief assistance and care to animals). Check out Dave's blog: Dave's Travels.

Dave (@davery90230) will tweet while he runs (crazy multi-tasker) and I (@foodlibrarian)will be tweeting while my friends and I eat donuts. Go figure.
