Good morning and Happy Birthday Station Manager Ken! I know you must be on the leeward side of 30 by now, you can trust me, it's not as troubling as it seems at first. You'll get used to it in time, maybe you've already started to see what I mean...? Just take each new experience as it comes, and try to enjoy every Marathon like it was your first!
