Marathon No. 3

I did it!

I signed up for my third marathon, the 2011 Surf City Marahton.

On their Facebook page, Surf City announced that their races were almost near capacity and the last thing I wanted to have happen is to not be able to participate in either the half or the full. So I took the plunge.

I have had so many things running through my mind since registering. I was mostly excited that I'd done it and that I will run 26.2 again, and to do it where it all started for me makes it more exciting.

I wasn't sure whether to do the full at all because this would have been... will be, I guess I can say that now, the first of two marathons I'll run in a six-week span. I plan on running the Los Angeles Marathon on March 20, six weeks after Surf City (Feb. 6). I think I can do it, and now I suppose I won't have a choice.

As far as a goal time, it's too early to say what time I want. I do want to break my PR which I set in San Francisco with a time of 4:37:51. How much time I think I can shave off remains to be seen.

But that's secondary. For now, I'm pumped that I did it and that my next marathon is within sights. It's not exactly right around the corner but there is a time and date now to look forward to. And look forward to it I will!

Whoo hoo! I'll have some good advice for you when you finish SC and then start up for LA - you're going to stomp that PR!
Not sure if I'm going to do it yet, I'll let you know ;) if you know what I mean ;)

Whoa!! Two marathons in 6 weeks, yikes! You'll crush your SF PR for sure. I'll be at both races too, but only doing the half in HB.
