OK, it's early, but you have to prepare for these things - Only 51 weeks on Sunday, so get training.<br><br>
Would anybody like to consider a small gathering of 30's and friends (and interlopers), around the races in Philadelphia towards the end of November - I heard somewhere that these sort of gatherings take place and one or two people have a bit of fun - Any takers?<br><br>

If it were closer, I'd say yes. I can't justify the expense when I have so many other states I need to get to.

What's your hurry? You're so young, you'll get all 50.<br><br>
You know, now that I'm up to 22 marathons I've started thinking about trying to be a 50 stater. But the problem is I've repeated so many races I'm only up to five states!<br><br>
Vermont = 8 marathons.<br>
New York = 6 marathons.<br>
Massachusetts = 4 marathons.<br>
Pennsylvania = 3 marathons.<br>
California = 1 marathon.

Now see....... there is a definite lack of Southern states there sir. A warm, non-snowy, non-sleety, cosy 50 degree marathon down South in November (somewhere) would just be awesome don't you think? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

Yeah, listen to <b>Mapes</b>!<br><br>
But, <b>Dr. Wu</b> I really would rather not repeat Philadelphia and you never know what might happen in the future. Plus, after I get all the states or sometime in between there, I'm thinking of starting to do ultras...maybe.

I came back to Philadelphia two times because I had unfinished business there: break 3:30. And now that I've done it I don't have a great desire to return, but I really think it's a great town to visit. Plus, my wife has missed the last two Philly Marathons with injuries so she still wants to run it.<br><br>
I am looking to expand to other races in other states, but still plan on doing Boston and Vermont every spring. Aw hell, if I could afford it and get the time off from work, I'd do one every month!

Hell yeh - If I could afford it and didn't live in Ireland, I'd do one a month too - Plus Philly ties in with my trip to family here for Thanksgiving, but I am more than open to suggestions, and wiling to travel anywhere -<br><br>
See Surf City in Feb for that answer - BUT , I will be back in Philly next year as well <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Uh, hello! Atlanta Marathon! It's today! Then you could all have excuses (except Liam since you don't really care about Thanksgiving) to not have to hang with your out-laws! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> You could come to my place for a huge post-race feast (that would be fun, considering I have a table big enough for 4! But I have beer........)<br><br>
Just for fun, because I love that it's HUGE: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/run1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="run caution">

Journeyman is great show - As are so many this season - Sarah Connor Chronicles is coming (seen the pilot) - looks good, Chuck is good, this seasons House is cool too.<br><br>
When are you coming to Europe, and will Ireland be on your travels, if so, you have somewhere to stay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
