      Hey, and my time yesterday would have netted me 4th place! If I were to run that next year in under 2 hours I could be in the top 3, even! Big grin k

          Big grin Actually, I'm sorta wondering if I want to do 2, now. Not that that race wouldn't be really fun, but that 10 miler I did so miserably on 6 weeks ago would be only a week before that first HM and I really don't know if I could do 2 major races like that so close together. And I REALLY want to replace my PR on that crappy 10 miler...so we'll see. k

            Wow! It must be an immense relief to Amylyn Robbins of Grand Haven MI that you did *not* join this time! Big grin (Sorry, coudn't resist) Blush bas

              Kristen, by then you'll have so much running under your belt that you could probably use the 10 miler ( the one a week before the race) as a training run and still get a PR on it while doing 2 HM.

                Ooh, that's a good point...by then I probably wouldn't have to run too hard to do better than this year's time...that might be a good last long run before that first HM, too. It really would be fun to do that OBB HM, too. We lived in Spring Lake, MI for 5 years before moving to our current location and my hubby works there, now. Heck, our kid was conceived in SL (unbeknownst to us when we moved...got the positive pregnancy test the day after we closed on this house). We are hoping to move back down that way in a year or two...great area for running with a paved path all around the lake in Spring Lake (also called Spring Lake)--about 12-13 mile trail (I have a feeling the HM goes around the lake, which would be an AWESOME course). k
