Huckabee Overcomes “Hitting the Wall”

Posted: February 7, 2008 in marathon running

Its still good to see our marathon boy, Mike Huckabee, is still in the mix for the Republican ticket. In addition to fighting to win the Republican nomination Mike, has been training for April Boston marathon

He still got Glycogen in him

Having fallen behind the front runners I thought Super Tuesday was supposed to be the day Mike “Hit the wall.” Huckabee captured enough states Tuesday — at least five — to establish himself as a viable conservative alternative.

Mike has been running the campaign the same way we amateur runners run a marathon, alone with few resources. Mike is operating with a small staff and has been outspent by his rivals.

Although, Mike is a long shot to win the nomination, he reminds me of the inspiring post of the runner who broke her leg and crawled to the finish. NEVER SAY DIE!

“We’re going to continue to prove that even with limited resources but lots of heart, the presidency can belong to the people of this country.” Mike has vowed.

Flanked by his wife, Janet, Huckabee added: “We’re proving that we’re still on our feet and much to the amazement of many, we’re getting there, folks, we’re getting there.”

Its a long way to the Republican Convention in September and Mike will need all the motivation he can to make date with destiny. One way Mike can boost his morale is by breaking his personal best 4hrs 38 mins, on April 21st at Boston Marathon. Good Luck

    Thanks. I wonder how much time he has spent on training in the last several months. I’ll be very impressed if he can achieve a PR in Boston.
