So in an act of sheer whimsicalia (yep, made that up), MG and I decided last night to register for the Myrtle Beach Marathon. A friend of her’s had signed up and it looked interesting so …. we’re in. I’ve never run a marathon that early in the year but I am very much looking forward to it and it will be relatively easy to maintain a good base coming off of NYC marathon and the Philly half marathon in November. Details can be found HERE.
2012 is starting to come into focus a little more clearly. I may also add the Ocean Drive marathon in March since I will already be in 26.2 mile shape. The spring will bring a number of sprint triathlons. Then of course EagleMan IronMan 70.3 in June. Followed by a few charity/training bike rides to support LIVESTRONG and the American Cancer Society in July and August. Then I will be back in Cambridge again for ChesapeakeMan ultra distance triathlon in September. Before I know it, I am back where I started with NYC again next year.
Add to that my usual support and “working” races such as Avalon Islandman, Philadelphia Insurance Triathlon, SheROX, and it should be another full and rewarding year. Much more to follow! Stay tuned.
