My brother lives in northern Virginia and just bought a house, so I could turn the trip into a visit and a marathon! I'm glad the decision is made....now I just wait for the Feb. 23 registration date.
On another note, I registered for Flower City Half Marathon and Boilermaker last week, so I have 2 definites on my running schedule.....better get training, May 1 will come fast!!

I am also interested in Marine Corps Marathon and that registration opens Feb. 23, 2011.
A decision will be made soon!! Which one will it be????
I booked a hotel in Chicago, just to make sure I'm covered if that's the one I choose.
Should I book one in D.C. as well......just in case???
Oh decisions decision decisions!

So, just wanted to check in now that I'm starting to think about my 2011 running schedule........and, vent about my toenails still being bruised from the marathon!! Seriously??
Sorry if this is totally gross, but seriously...it's been over 2 months!?! How long do I need to wait for all my marathon wounds to be healed??
On to 2011! Yay! This will be a great year, it HAS to be a great year!
My 2011 running schedule is just starting to come together and I'm about to register for my first run this week. It's been a rough 2 months and I've not been very active and kind of put on a bunch of weight. So, I have ALOT of work to do before my first run.
March will mark my first run of 2011 with the St. Patrick's day 5 mile run. I'll follow that up with the Flower City Half Marathon on May 1st, and I'm contemplating adding a very challenging 15K in early April. I've chickened out of that run for the past few years and I really think I need to do it this year! No fear this year!
Also, registration just opened for Boilermaker 2011 in July and I'll be registering this week. Our hotel has been booked since this summer, so that one is ready to go! I'd love to do the Lake Placid half, but not sure if I will add that one in this year. And, thinking about what marathon I want to run in the fall! :) Yep, I'm ready to do it again and do it much better. Thinking of Chicago, but also might put my name in the lottery for NYC again b/c my friend Diane is also in the lottery this year. Fingers crossed that we could both get in!
That's it for now. Starting the Gold's Gym Body Transformation Challenge 2011 next week and I can't wait!
