2010 Marathon Plans (Read 1161 times)

    I have my first marathon planned for May 2, 2010 in Frederick, MD.  I'm a bit nervous already, especially since the snow is so bad around here I have to spend too much time on the treadmill.
      I'm thinking Chicago.  Anyone out there run this marathon?

          St. Jude Marathon in Memphis on December 4th.  I'm also thinking about the Midsouth Marathon in Wynne Arkansas November 7th as a tune up race.  We'll see how the mileage goes this Spring and Summer.

             There's a Chicago thread going on in the general boards under racing. I'd like to do it one day just because it sounds like a big moving party.

             

            Added San Diego RNR after being contacted by a friend. Only problem is it's two weeks before Kona. Those are gonna be two slow runs.

                Jeebus.  Good luck Jesse.  The trip down from Forest City to Carbondale kills me every year, even if I do run it in training.

                I'm touching your pants.

                  I never understood this. I can not for the life of me notice the downhill. Everyone goes on about their "quads"....nope not me, my quads feel just fine during steamtown.  I ran negative splits last year.

                   

                  See you there!

                    I'm waiting for the 2011 thread, but I'll be training to run my First Marathon in 2011 sometime.

                        I don't have a goal race quite yet

                        I'll see how my training goes and the pick a race in the general Calendar vicinity

                         

                        When I'm ready, I'll choose a race and enter :-)

                         

                        I need to be flexible so that I train for my Own Body and not for a date on the calendar so that I remain uninjured

                        :-)
