Chris’ marathon blog: I run by myself and always listen to music. The biggest push I get from an artist called Future. His music fuels all of my runs!

He is a beagle and likes running probably even more than I do. It was so much fun running with him! I’m sure he’d actually love to run the marathon with me!
