Medals from the first 14 marathons
On yesterday's long run (I knocked out a healthy/good-feelin' 16 miles), a few of the folks referred me to the Sunburst Marathon held the weekend after Memorial Day. The finish is on the 50 yard line of Notre Dame stadium. It has so-so reviews on Marathon Guide and date, while only 1 week after Buffalo, was getting simply too far out. So on to Buffalo: it's Memorial Day weekend...on Sunday...and only 3 to 3.5 hours from home. Easy drive up on Saturday and back Sunday night. Plus, Marjie and a girlfriend of hers is going to walk the 1/2 marathon (way to go!). I talked to the race director last night of the Buffalo Marathon and he expects about 3000 total participants (marathon, 1/2, and marathon relay)...perfect size and minimal congestion. The course is also known to be flat and fast. So Buffalo it is! Goal is Set....now back to the training....
SPRING IS NEAR!!!! ALMOST TIME TO SHED THE WINTER GEAR!!!!
