Good to know the reflective zipper works
like a charm!
Someone mentioned the Martha's Vineyard 20 miler on the Runner's World message boards. I thought traveling to the race in the winter from Long Island would be more difficult than the actual race. But when I thought about it some more, the more it became attractive. We have friends who live on the Vineyard, one of whom is an avid, accomplished runner (5ks in the teens and marathons in the 3:teens). He is actually a course marshall at the ten mile mark on this particular race. He said the great thing about the 20 miler is that most participants are Boston bound and that I will likely find a nice group at any particular pace to chat up about the marathon. Doesn't he know I don't like to talk to other people? Especially during a race?! Well, if I do decide to run this, it would be a training run. It would be a nice change of scenery (I'm getting so bored of my routes! Like, seriously. Bored.). The weather can be kind of iffy (the first ten miles are along the coast), but I think it will be worth it. Looks like I already made up my mind. Now to get the rest of the family on board!
