My first tag

I had a great 10-mile run this morning, the conditions were perfect; which in Oregon this time of year means DRY.

I'm totally conflicted about what to do for my marathons over the next six months; I have lots of things I want to do and I just can't decide which is more important.

I want to become a MANIAC I can do this by running the following marathons:

Eugene May 2
Newport June 5
Missoula July 11

This is the lowest level of entry into this "elite" group.

But......what is more important; becoming a maniac or qualifying for Boston? I know that I have to qualify for Boston at the first race, Eugene, otherwise the toll of three marathons in three months will take its' toll on me. I have 8:00 minutes to go to make my BQ; I am running faster, but is it fast enough and can I sustain it over 26.2 miles?

I want to run an ultra this year as well; if the lottery gods are good to me I will run the McKenzie River Trail Run the race is in mid-September. Finally, the plan is to run the Philadelphia Marathon in November. This is a lot of racing for one year; 4 marathons and one ultra. It is nice to have decisions like this to make.

  3. Thanks for tagging me :)

    OK I looked into being a maniac, but then I realized I had to pay to be a part of the club. LOL!!

    Too bad your BQ time is different than mine, we could team up in eugene.
