Carlsbad Half Marathon & Marathon

Ken Mercer or Tom Brady?, originally uploaded by jakerome.

Ken is a good friend of mine & ran the Carlsbad Half Marathon today, just outside of San Diego, California. Of course, this afternoon the Chargers traveled to Foxboro to play the New England Patriots for the AFC championship, with a berth to the Super Bowl on the line. Ken got a fair amount of razzing from the race announcer, who referred to him several times as "Tom Brady," since he wore a Tom Brady jersey across the finish line. In fact, they chatted about him for a minute or more. After the race, we went back to Ken's house and watched the Patriots defeat the Chargers 21-12 to continue their undefeated season. Go Pats!
