Hopefully everybody had a great weekend of races and long training runs (some of us twice)... and if you're in the my area a very snowy one!
I'm quite often asked "What are you going to do when you're done with your 50 states? Are you going to miss traveling to all of them?" Well I would, except I'm not quite finished! I have a few more to do because MB ("Mom," "Mary Beth," "Crazy Lady," etc) is also doing the states and will be about a dozen behind me when I finish at Boston. I will be going back to redo some states that she has missed. Also, most of you know I am trying to do all my marathons in under 4 hours so I can be part of the 50 Sub 4 club. That's not a terribly hard task, but I have had a number of races that I haven't made this goal due to... double marathon weekends, pacing other people, sickness, and generally very very difficult (high altitude) races. This is where all you crazy marathoners come in. I need suggestions on "Must Do" marathons in the following states...
Need LOW elevation and/or fast courses for the following...
CO, UT, WY, MT
Non trail / Not OVERLY tough courses
AK, CT, KS, ME, NC, NH, NM, OK,
AL, KY, GA, SC, SD,
I posted yesterday about how much I love these RazzyRoo Headbands. I will definitely be adding these to my "Runners Christmas List- 2010." Well Cheryl from RazzyRoo has been kind of to let me play early Santa and give away a few RazzyRoos in time for Christmas! I will be picking a winner and sending these THREE headbands!
These would make excellent stocking stuffers-- and guys? We'll let you take FULL credit when you give these to your wife or daughters.
