So what's next??

Guess who just signed up for the brand new ING Georgia Marathon??? Brent and I! Woo hoo!! Man, we've done so many small races lately that I've been spoiled by the cheaper entry fee prices! GEEZ! $80 a person does not sound like an early discount to me! Ridiculous fees aside I'm looking forward to a larger race with more spectators after doing the smaller ones all fall. I don't think you can trade the charm of the small races at all (esp all the homemade goodies after!) but it will be nice to have thousands of spectators cheering you on! AND, the course will b a lot easier than the marathons we did this fall. YEAH!!! It's not flat AT ALL, but it is certainly no PWP mountains! And I also booked a really cute boutique hotel for us downtown within walking distance. I've spent more money here at work this morning than if I were out shopping. (And yes, we are some of the only people in the world working today. Of course this crappy ass place isn't closed.)

So who else is going to be there????? It will be state #4 for me!!!

Rae and Brent

You guys are real troopers! Way to go on setting the next goal. ING is a class act. You'll have a great time and be able to run fast now in this one!! It is so amazing to me to see your transition from your first 5k to all these marathons. Cannot wait to train with you some in the Hood too!

Sorry you have to work today.... blah...find a new better job!

I saw a Harpeth race shirt at Autumnfest here in Knoxville... were those shirts personalized for you all? They looked SHARP!

One of my runny buds, Kitty is coming to Atlanta. She's tried talking me into going. But it's a month from the new marathon in Eugene, OR that I've had my eye on since July.

I think I've said this before, but it looks like you are on your way to a 50 state adventure. Good times.

Sounds like you're turning into one of the marathon maniacs you ran with earlier. :-)

You guys are awesome! Let me know when you finish the 50 states and want to start running in Europe - the guestroom in Germany is free!

$80 x 2, that is steep. I've noticed running events are alot more expensive than cycling events. Not sure why.
