I personally think that planning which marathons you are going to run is just as exciting as running them! I guess this is where I can be considered a Type A personality. I am pretty certain that Ken is tired of hearing "if I get into the NYC marathon....", so hurry up March, I need to know!
2010 Marathon Schedule
I will be running the St. Louis Marathon on April 11th with my friend Laura. I have run this half marathon the last two years and love the course. St. Louis is only four hours from home and I can stay with Laura or in a corporate apartment courtesy of my employer. This equals a super inexpensive trip, which is a huge plus!
I am also planning on running the Chicago Marathon on October 10th with Laura. Laura has run this race a few times and loves it! I was registered for this marathon in 2008, but walking out my front door proved to be too much of a task and my broken foot was proof. I am super excited about this marathon.
Of course we all know about my desire to run in the New York City Marathon on November 7th, pending lottery acceptance of course. I have convinced Ken that if I do not get into the NYC marathon this year, to take me to NYC in December. I am just dying to go to NYC and just do not think I can wait until 2011. As you can probably guess, I am anxious to start planning a NYC trip and would like to know which month I will be visiting! Of course I do not want to make the Lottery Gods upset, so I will be patiently waiting for the next few months. Oh please, oh please do not reject me three years in a row. Please let 2010 be my year!
Those are my plans. I am disappointed that a few of the half marathons I like to run have changed dates and now interfere with marathons. Oh well, I guess I will be saving the entry fees by not running them! More purses for me!
Happy Christmas Week!
