I am going to do my first trail marathon in 2013!
The North Country Run is a full marathon, half marathon, and 50 mile trail run in Michigan! The price is reasonable, and they won me over with their promise of veggie burgers, two beers (they know how i roll.), and a jacket with my name on it (Gingerfoxxx, obvi).
And to be honest, i love Michigan, and i love nature, so this seems like something i would enjoy, minus the whole running 26 miles in August thing. (minor details)
Most importantly, they have a finishers medal that Flava-Flav accused of being too big, and i am sucker for things like that.
Either way, I'm pumped. I like to have a race I signed up for in the distant future, out of the fear that i will finish a marathon, remember how painful it is, and then never sign up for one again. This way, i have no choice but to do it :) Is anyone else looking way too far ahead into 2013? Just me??
