Two New Marathons for Minn-eh-soh-tah!

Yesterday I FINALLY got a run in. I was kind of disappointed with it though. I only made it 3 miles and then had to hop on the eliptical. I can't explain why, but it was just really a struggle to keep running. I was hoping to get a 6 miler in. Maybe by the end of this week or next week when the holidays die down.

Oh...and it turns out that I missed some really big news. Minnesota is gaining 2 new marathons! For those of you who don't know--we currently host 2 major ones right now--Grandma's in Duluth and the Twin Cities Marathon. We will be adding on one more in Stillwater (a beautiful tourist city where I ran my half marathon in August) and another one in Minneapolis. Read here.

I think I still will be running only the Twin Cities Marathon but it might be nice to partake in the half marathon or 5k of one of these races.

I saw the news on the new Marathons...the Team Ortho one is suppose to be downtown! I won't be up for a marathon yet - but one of the HMs may work into my schedule. I haven't planned out my 2009 race schedule yet. (well, not completely).

When running TCM, make sure to look for the giant farm animals!!
