Marathon time again

I've concluded that I need to commit to the marathons in advance after missing out on the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon last year. If I'd planned ahead, I could have extended my AIR trip to include the marathon, leaving on Sunday instead of Thursday. I learned my lesson. So my plan now is to run the Dallas White Rock Marathon on December 11 of this year. Then on April 9, I'll do the Spirit of St. Louis Marathon. Finally, in December 2006, it's the Honolulu Marathon. With any luck, the Law of the Splintered Paddle will be out by then and I can combine the marathon with a book tour.

Training: The White Rock is 17 weeks away. Week one began yesterday with 4 miles on the indoor track in the Rec because it threatened to storm. Need to do two threes this week and a 5 with Ernie on Saturday.

    Aw, C'mon Mark. Can the marathon. Come experience Huntsville State park and Sunmart! Your legs will feel much better after 50K on the trails than 26 on the asphalt! And it's still 17 Weeks!
