Had a meeting with Team in Training today (for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society). I think I’m going to do a full marathon sometime in the next 6-8 months. I normally do work for another charity in the springtime, but last year that charity really annoyed me and they were very ungrateful for any work I did for them. LLS is extremely grateful for all of their volunteers and for that, I’ll do work for them all year round 🙂
So. Full marathon. I’ve never run more than 8 or 9 miles at a time. This could get interesting.
I’m debating between a race in Nashville (in April) and the race in San Diego (in June). The Nashville race would obviously be closer, and I wouldn’t have to fundraise AS much, and Kenny would be able to go with me. The San Diego race would be WAY FUN, but would require me to fundraise twice as much, and Kenny couldn’t go because of the school year. That race would run into his last week of school – we can’t count on those days remaining teacher workdays. So, I’m leaning towards Nashville. At least I have until March to officially decide which one I’ll do.
Maybe I could run San Diego in 2008 🙂 I’m so going to do this…and it’s going to kick my butt!
