A little over a week ago I posted my fall/winter marathon choices. Well, I had to make a decision and I think I made the obvious one: the 2011 Rock ‘n’ Roll Vegas Marathon!!! Vegas in December? Running on the strip at night? No brainer.
I’ve never run a marathon during the early winter so I think it’s going to work out great. The weather here in central Va stays pretty warm through the beginning of December (by warm, I mean in the 40s and 50s). Perfect training weather!
While I was at home I was also able to put together a tentative race schedule for the months leading up to the main event. Here’s what I put together (you’ll see the races range from short to long, running to triathlon. They are just options):
