Funny Exchange

The group included Meb Keflezighi, Merhawi Keflezighi (Meb's brother and agent), Steve Karpas (the marathon's director of marketing and development) and Inside Texas Running columnist Mark Fraser.

Karpas told Meb a story about Fraser: "One Saturday morning around 8, I was out with a group doing a 16-miler. We met up with Fraser and told him he must've gotten a late start and that we were running 16. He said, "I've already ran 34."

Fraser added: "It was my 50th birthday and I was running 50 miles that day. Kind of a present to myself."

Meb laughed a little, then responded: "I'm 31 and I've never ran 31 miles."
