Perhaps I should just throw in towel...but it's marathon magic and I love. Richmond does offer a half-marathon option so I can do that if worse comes to worse. But man will I be sad.
Just read marathon recaps today from Ashley , Monica and Katie (Hi, 2:48!!) so I'm feeling the energy! I know that Richmond will be a blast even if I only do the half. I have a bunch of friends running it so that's fun.
I'll be running a half-marathon this weekend -- and I'm planning a 20-miler for the next week. Then it's three weeks till marathon day. I guess that 20-miler will be my deciding factor...
Also, I'm planning to spectate for the Marine Corps Marathon though I'm hearing rumors that it could be cancelled due to the government shutdown. Oh man, I hope not! Does anyone know?
Have you ever had to forfeit a race -- or transfer to a half-marathon when signed up for a full? Anyone ever had this running on the right side of my body issue?
