Yet Another Update

Not very long ago I talked about being a planner yet being open to spontaneity as well so here it is. I had planned on running my first 50K this year. I was going to do Dude, Where's the Trail the end of November. It's a local run-not even a race-which really doesn't matter-but...anyway...I was very excited about running my first 50K but not so excited about the race itself. I'd rather do something different-more exciting. So within the last half an hour-kid you not!, Doug asked me if I wanted to do the Kiawah Island Marathon in South Carolina. Sure...when is it? December 6th. December 6th? Yep. My Birthday!

So I'm going to forgo the 50K as it would have been the Sunday before. I could still do the 50K and run their half marathon the week after, but running a marathon ON MY BIRTHDAY sounds much more fun. So...that's what I'm going to do. And I can knock out another state and get another marathon charm for my bracelet. Whoo Hoo!

So...for sure a 50K is in the works for 2009 as I'm not going to be able to fit one in for 2008 now with the rearranged schedule.

I can handle 60 degrees in December!


  1. That's awesome, and on your birthday, what a great idea!

  2. Oh I LOVE IT!

    What a great way to celebrate a birthday, that's what I did in May!!!

    Save 2009 for the 50K,maybe we can do one together!

  3. South Carolina will be a beautiful place for a marathon on your special day! WOW! How could you pass up 60 degrees in December. Enjoy!
