STEAMTOWN!!!!!!! I will probably be there too.<br>
It is hilly, but nothing a little focussed treadmill work could not handle.

oh, i guess you are right. It is really not that bad. I was thinking of the uphills. But then again, i have a different frame of reference.<br><br>
It really is not all that downhill. It is a myth. It is up and down! but net down.

It says Harrisburg is mostly flat. If you run it i will go with you, it should fit in my schedule well. Philadelphia last year was a fluke, it was very well organized last year. If you want, i can bring you yummies after the race for you. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Liam! I volunteer at Philly, so i will definitly be there.<br><br>
SGH, please do not be so afriad of hills. With all your biking and cross training, small hills should be no problem for you. I understand that you think flat is fastest, but i got my marathon PR at Pocono last year, which is by far the hilliest marathon i have ever seen! My body likes using different muscles over the course of races, instead of the same muscles on boring flat courses <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Or, Philly again. Always a good bet.

JC- that is so funny, because i LOVE tiny little races. The one i am doing tomorrow had 300 people last year, they are expecting 400-700 this year.<br><br>
I would love to do Gods Country Marathon in PA but it always falls at an odd place in my schedule.

Thanks for the recommendation WU! I will at the VT50 the week before, no traveling two weekends in a row <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I try to only travel and take off of work, once every 6-8 weeks. Though a bit more during race season.<br><br>
srlopez- you are a walking marathon guide <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> i am contemplating harrisburg, if you are going to be there again.
