Looking at Blue Ridge Marathon as a spring target race for me. Something about those hills calls me, for some reason.
I'll throw a couple of local halfs in there as well, and race them as part of training, but really what I need to do to get ready for this is just be consisent with my training and do the miles. For once I'd like to finish a marathon without walking significant portions of the last several miles. So, I don't really have a target time in mind - I'll figure that out after the Savin Rock half on 3/23 - I just want to run the whole damn thing at this point.
