                            What is this? May of this year? Aren't you supposed to make an official announcement on the forum? Or at least, have the decency to post questions like: Should I run a marathon? Am I ready to run a marathon? Is SmartCoach a good plan for a marathon? You know... the usual. Big grin

                             

                            I can't do an ultra, but I'd love to run this one with you, George (although I have no idea where it is or what is so special about it that you'd even think of doing a marathon).

                              It's just a short drive for me out Proofreader's way. It's part of my NC 24 training plan. It's on a Rails to Trails route so it is basically flat and I think it's shaded much of the way. With a 6:00 AM start, though, I'll drive out the day before and stay overnight.

                                Sounds like a very nice race. You'll get to FE with Joanne, very nice!
