So far, here is what I am thinking. I will start the summer going for my 1:49:xx goal again.
As I mentioned the other day, I would like to run a full in the fall. I toyed with Chicago, running for charity as I did not even enter the lottery. But then when it came down to it, trying to raise $2000 (or more) scared me a little bit. So someday I might enter the lottery for that one, I suppose.
Right now my focus is a little closer to my hometown.
- Close enough to my mom's house that I would not need a hotel.
- The idea of an international marathon is pretty fun
- Plenty of time to train (the race is mid-October)
- DETROIT (in some ways, that is enough)
But there is a second option as well.
This just became an option when tweeting with my fellow GCM ambassadors last night. Sounds like this is the plan for all of them. I have heard it is a good race, and it will be fun to do something with them again, even though none of us run at the same pace!
But first, I need to get the husband on board.
