I know where I won’t be on November 4.  I won’t be in New York City running the marathon.

Three of us applied and three of us were denied.

Kevin – the only smart one in the bunch – had registered for the Marine Corps Marathon as a backup.    Keith and I put all of our eggs into the NYC basket.  Now we’re left to scan Runners World and other marathon review sites searching for an alternative.

We’re meeting @ the track tonight for our usual Wednesday night speedwork.  Our assignment prior to that is to research 4 or 5 potential fall marathons.  Here’s the criteria

  1. in/around New England
  2. between October 15 and November 15
  3.  a scenic course would be nice.

That’s it – shouldn’t be too tough to find a decent one.  We’re definitely open to suggestions.
