Spring Break Marathon

Hey People

Jason and I are thinking about running a spring marathon. We are thinking about this one :

www.sarasotamarathon.com

It's on March 4th and so perfect timing to start training after a short break after Chicago. It's much smaller, I think there were like 1700 runners last year in the inagural run.

Anyone else interested? We could start a winter training group. People might have different paces but we could try and do the same workouts each day and then after the long runs go and get breakfast or whatever. If you are interested and not in Chicago we could of course still compare training notes. I was thinking this race could be a bit more fun and just more experience in running the distance. Road trip?

PLUS this marathon is about 30 minutes away from my mom which means that everyone could meet her :-).

Let me know if you are interested.

Sounds like fun. I will hitting it up for P.F. Chang's in January - another marathon so soon will kill my poor legs.

What about the Mini in May?

Do I want cheese with that whine? Why, yes, I do!

You guys are awesome! I would love to run but I don't do long runs in Chicago's winters! But then again I might change my mind after Oct 22 when I'm on a runner's high.

Lora and I were briefly looking at the one also. I know it's the '2nd annual' which means they might have gotten some of the kinks out of the inaugural one.

Plus, my folks and sister live in Sarasota which makes it pretty convenient for lodging...lol

We'll keep you posted...
