My new MAJOR running goal in writing

Monday, October 06, 2008

In 2010, I will run a marathon. I would like it to be a huge race with tons of crowd support (which is pretty much nonexistent in Toronto) so I am thinking either New York or Chicago. I don't think I have the speed to even think about qualifying for Boston.

    As someone who has run Chicago 7 times and volunteered 5 times, I LOVE the race and highly recommend it!! You will have a blast. FYI, this past year it sold out in April, so solidify your plans early. I know that New York is a lottery-based registration process, so it's a little harder to get in. I would love to do New York one day.

    You could qualify for Boston at Chicago and then do that one as your second marathon! :-)

    Happy Training!

    WOOHOO!!!!!!!! :D DO IT! :D You will rock it. I'm now actually considering that I WILL do a Half-Marathon someday. Still pretty sure I'll never go for a full marathon... but I guess I should wait till the half has been accomplished.. ;)

    Great goal! You must really have enjoyed your half.

    I tried to get in to the NYC marathon this year, but didn't get picked in the lottery. Maybe next year!
