Doug and I have decided to run the Hatfield and McCoy Marathon June 13th. Anyone else running this? It's supposed to be a pretty challenging course that starts in Kentucky and finishes in West Virginia. For a fun twist, they split the field in half. Half being McCoy's. The other half, Hatfield's. The total combined time of each family determines who wins the feud that year.
Then Nikemom suggested a race I can't pass up. Not so much for the marathon itself, but because of the date. It just happens that the marathon is on my birthday, December 6th. How cool it is going to be running a marathon on my birthday two years in a row. Last December it was the Kiawah Island Marathon in SC. This year it's going to be the Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas Marathon. Now in the past, this marathon has been known to just..well...lets get real...suck. Mostly having to deal with the wind, dust storms and then running out in BFE for miles on end. Not a race that I've had any desire to run. But...this year, Elite Racing, who is in charge of the Rock 'n' Roll Series, is organizing this marathon now. With that said, improvements are coming. First off, with a new course. Whooo Hooo!
And with us running Rock 'n' Roll Seattle this year too, we'll receive more bling with their Heavy Medal Series for running two of their events in one year. How can you pass that up?
So...start making plans to pack your party shoes and, of course, your running shoes and meet us in Vegas, baby!
