    I am planning to run the Denver Marathon but not until October. Just wondering who's getting ready for next year.

      So far I'm registered for: Surf City USA Marathon 2/03/08 Boston Marathon 4/21/08 Will register for: San Diego Rock n Roll Marathon 6/01/08 San Antonio Rock n Roll Marathon (Inagural!!) 11/08 I did 4 half marathons this year and just can't seem to fit any in next year. There's also a 50k I'm toying with but it's in March and that might be pushing it. So many races, so little time! Tongue

        I am I am. I'm looking to do Long branch NJ in May. MAY due El Scorcho 50k in July. Steamtown in October and The Monkey in November. If I don't do El Scorcho I may do Little Lehigh Marathon again this year.

        Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

          I've signed up for the Mississauga Marathon on 5/11/08. Will most certainly run a second in the Fall, but haven't settled on anything as yet.

              Miami, January 27th. Smile
                I'm planning for Cowtown for sure - haven't signed up for anything yet though. The rest are sort of penciled in. November's selection will have to be narrowed down to one - based on what happens between now and then - training and life-wise. Cowtown Marathon - 2/23/08 Grasslands (Trail) Marathon 3/22/08 El Scorcho 50K - 7/20/08 Palo Duro Trail Run 50K - 10/08 Rockledge Rumble (Trail) 50K - 11/08 Ultracentric 12 Hour Event - 11/08 The Monkey - 11/08 Sunmart Texas Trail Endurance Run (50 Miler) 12/08

                When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

                  Needs more cowbell!

                    Planning on the Grand Rapids Marathon in late Oct. I will register in May at the Fifth-Third Riverbank Run expo, then the price is at it's lowest and they usually knock an extra $5 off the price at the Expo. k

                    '14 Goals:

                    • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

                    • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

                      Oklahoma City Marathon in April. Pikes Peak (?) in August. Shocked Maybe the Wild West Relay, but DW thinks we should skip this year and go again in ’09. Undecided

                        Hawk, How was the Wild West? Heard a lot of good things. Think I have put together an ultra team. Should be good if the weather cooperates. DB

                          Count me in for a subset of Bonkin's schedule. Most likely Cowtown, El Scorcho 50k, and either Rockledge or Ultracentric 6hr.

                            Haha! Bonkin may be in for a subset of Bonkin's schedule, too!

                            Go Pre!

                              2 or 3, depending on timing, travel funds, injuries Smile If 3, they will be out of towners, early spring, early fall and late fall / early winter. Otherwise it looks like Mississauga in may is a possibility with Tuf, and then something in the fall.
