I was just now perusing the www . . . .<br><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><br>
Looky wha happen. . .<br>
I typed dink as part of my slang-o spelling of coincidence,<br>
and it did that emoticon thingie.<br>
HEY!! Stop it!!
I just thought you were being your usual clever self, Aija.<br><br>
Hey, you gals want some Prosecco? I forgot last night. <img alt="roll_eyes.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/roll_eyes.gif"><br><br>
(Something to ponder fer shoor. Cross-border running!)<br><br>
ETA: Wouldn't ya know KenA would show up when I bring out the booze.
Prosecco? We went Spanish, here... didn't get to it last night either! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br>
Relays in marathons are awesome. We have a three-person relay option for the Equinox Marathon now, and I'd love to do that... but you don't get "series points" for it so haven't pursued it yet. Sounds like fun, Econo!! (but Detroit??)
well, from what I heard last year, I thought it would make a good fall marathon ('course, there were several other good ideas, like Dublin!) for a meet-up. If we meet on one coast or another, it favors that coast.
I already have hotel reservations.<br>

Hey, what do other words do?<br><br>
Are you serious about this? I would normally run Grand Rapids, which is on the same day this year, but will stick around the "home town" if there's a chance to meet some of you for the first time.<br><br>
I'm also committed to another HM that's just two weeks prior, but I don't think that should be a problem. I just have to decide which one to run hard and then take it easy on the other one.
How about it, La T? Want to meet up in the big D?<br><br>
I have questions for the locals, however. My fall marathon has to be a fast one. Portland's course seemed hard. Hartford's course is better -- I REALLY liked Hartford.<br><br>
The website mentions a hill. Would you recommend Detroit to someone with a difficult marathon time goal? Yah, I know; be realistic, run for fun, etc. etc. But I want a fighting chance at a good time this fall.<br><br>
And how big is the crowd? Portland was crowded. Seattle was stupidly crowded (for a midpacker in the half, that is). Hartford's size was perfect -- a good number of runners but never any crowding.
