And the winner is……………..
With so many good ones out there this Fall, this was a really tough choice. If I was healthier and could pick only one race, it would have probably been the Portland marathon…. it’s one of my favorite of all time. Alas, my lung function has declined to the point where it would be really foolish, even for me, to attempt another full marathon…at least right now. So Ive decided instead, to play it smart (for a change) and do a shorter race much closer to home.
The SJ Rock and Roll half marathon is a relatively new race here in this part of California, but its received really good reviews and my friends rave about it. This will be my first R&R race, so it will be a new experience for me. With all the live music, it should be a really fun event. Id love to see you out there.
For those of you who are thinking about doing the San Jose Rock and Roll, you can use the promo code ” WALKSJ” to save a few bucks. Courtesy of WalkAbout Magazine, who by the way, will be featuring yours truly in their Sept/Oct issue.
As for whether I’ll ever do a 6th full marathon, I think it’s safe to say that if given the chance, Id probably try to do Boston again in 2010. This time though, with a goal of training really hard and maybe PRing it. And of course, without all the finish line drama that occurred this year.
