I'd like to make this a contest, but I am unsure I want to commit definitely to any one particular suggestion I may get here.
Sooooo. Let me throw this out here. This is a Semi Contest!!!!!
My training is starting to be more consistent and I am running a bit stronger. Thus I am looking at a half Marathon in February or March 2008….
But as a contract worker, I have no plans for February or March. So, I have not picked out a particular race. At this point, I can go ANYWHERE in the United States (I still have time to get a license for a Non-Compact state)
So I thought I'd throw this out there.
Anyone have a particularly fun wonderful race they would like to suggest? I want to hear all about it!!!!!!!
If I decide to go there and train and run for my next contract, the Suggester will recieve a variety of race related paraphenalia, a wonderful pair of BALEGA SOCKS and possibly some other surprises such as a nice bag of good coffee…There may also be Runner Up or Honerable mention prizes…such as exciting Lace Locks for your shoes!!!!
*Please submit your choices in the following "format"
*Name and location of race.
*Date for this year if known.
*Your experience of the race (Have you run in it, or volunteered for it, how many times…etc etc YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE RUN IT TO SUBMIT IT)
*Details of the course (ie is it hilly, through a historic neighbourhood, etc etc)
*Number of participants (If you know it)
*Any Quirky Info (costumed runners etc…unusual aid stations)
*Why you would recommend this race over others.
*Feel free to submit your own photos and such to lend to the excitement.
I am open to any race that is between the Distance of 8 miles to the Half Marathon. Though I am leaning towards the Half Mary.
Balega Socks are some of the best ever, so I highly recommend making a suggestion!!!
Since it may take up to 6 weeks for me to get a License for work in some places, I will leave this as an open contest for Three Weeks.
I Hope lots of People will submit their favorites!!!!!
