Samples of ``Pages of Encouragement'' that will be sent to the Hollywood Boys & Girls Club from celebrities are:
Bob and Dolores Hope:
- Stretch, drink plenty of water and make sure your shoelaces are tied.
- I used to be quite a runner. With an act like mine I had to learn to move fast to dodge the rotten tomatoes.
- Run fast, run well -- and when you get to a crosswalk look both ways.
- Just keep remembering to put one foot in front of the other until you find victory at the finish line.
Clint and Lisa Black:
-- You should run with your eyes open and your mouth closed. This will keep the bugs from sticking to your teeth.
``Pages of Encouragement'' originated from the mind of Marie Patrick, executive director of the L.A. Marathon.
