If I just wait long enough to plan my 2010 schedule, it looks like things will just work themselves out. I was kicking around the idea of heading back to Chicago for a fast fall marathon. Well, that race closed as of yesterday. So if I want to run a fall marathon, I’ll have to come up with another option. Perhaps I should run TCM again. It’s still the only marathon course I’ve run, along with Boston, that I haven’t broken 3 hours on. That would make for a good challenge. I did sign up for Grandma’s Marathon this week. As of Saturday I’ll have 12 weeks until race day.

I want to make one last push to get people to purchase a copy of A Minnesota Runner’s Yearbook 2009. It’s one of those projects that’s a lot of work, but in the end it’s worth it. Unfortunately, it’s in jeopardy of dying a slow, painful death if we aren’t able to sell any more copies. One thing to keep in mind, while 2009 may be fresh in your mind, years from now you may want to look back and see who was kicking ass in 2009. The Yearbook makes that all possible, all for the low, low rate of $10, plus $2 S&H. So if you want to see future Yearbooks – even if you got a complimentary copy this year - let USATF Minnesota know by sending your money by mail to:

USATF Minnesota
960 Douglas Road,
Mendota Heights, MN 55118

I didn't see any commentary on our Lebanon Hills trail rum whereby you were leading us on closed trails with thorn bushes growing. I still have cuts on my legs!

I thought the thorns would just slide along your baby-soft, clean shaven triathlon legs.
