So, it is official. I contacted the race director for the Marathon and made the switch to the 1/2 Marathon. At first it was such a disappointing decision to make but with a little reflection I have found that my race schedule for next year is more important than this one race.
I added the New Orleans Marathon to my race list but I have not signed up for it yet. I will run it for fun instead of time and use it as one of my last LONG runs as the Triathlon season rolls into view.
My plan to qualify for Boston is still very real and still very attainable. I am happy with the way my running is going and I am confident I will be able to reach my goal in Houston 2008. That will still be 3:10 or better. By then I will be going for sub 3:00!
