We're having a NYC Marathon/Football Sunday gathering this weekend, (football will be on Mike's new flat screen, his combo Birthday/Christmas/Anniversary/Valentines Day/New Job Present). I remember watching the Marathon on television last year with Jeannine and thinking of how much I wanted to run one, and now, a year later we can both say that we have! I used to love going to watch the Marathon in person, as a kid, as well as an adult. We always stood at the 59th Street Bridge, to cheer on my friends who were running.
This is Luke and I on the way to his first NYC Marathon:
Now that I have a few good runs under my belt, I've been thinking of my next marathon. Once again I'll do the Lottery for NYC for 2011, but I need a back up. This week it was announced that Syracuse will host the Empire State Marathon for the first time in October of next year. I've looked at the course, and I've run parts of it before, but to do the full 26.2 you need to do two laps around the lake. I don't know if I would be a fan of running something twice in one race, so I already think I'll just do the half.
A friend of mine is mulling over running the Buffalo Marathon in May, so there's another possibility. But on the other hand, I think it would be fun to run a race somewhere other than NY State.
Hmmmmmmmm. Decisions, decisions.
