I receive your daily updates after 10 am. Sometimes the marathon updates have already started. Is there anyway you can list marathons the day before?

Susan, Thanks for the suggestion. It is a little more difficult to do them ahead of time, as I usually put the daily posts together each morning when I get home from work. I’ve thought of setting the emails to go out earlier, but can’t always be sure that I can get the post completed in time for an earlier email time. Yet, on days you are looking for a good marathon, you might want to check the site directly, as the daily Tonight on the Tube posts usually posted by around 5:00 a.m. PT.
