Well – the 2010 marathon season is upon us.  As I prepare to head out for a three hour run, I decided to finalize my 2010 calendar. 

2009 sucked for me – I didn’t complete any marathons on my way to doing a marathon in every state by the time I’m 50.  Mild injuries, several colds, fatigue from work and travel, and general lack of rhythm are my excuses while a temporary failing of my iron will is the real reason. 

Out with the 2009 lameness – it’s a new year and we’ll try again.  My best year was 2008 when I did five marathons so let’s up that by one and do six this year.  Here are the one’s I’m currently planning to do.

  1. 02/28/10 – New Orleans, LA: Rock ‘n’ Roll Mardi Gras Marathon
  2. 04/11/10 – St Louis, MO: GO! St. Louis Marathon
  3. 06/12/10 – Marathon, IA: Marathon to Marathon
  4. 08/21/10 – Rachel, NV: E.T. Full Moon Midnight Marathon
  5. 10/17/10 – Detroit, MI: Detroit Free Press / Flagstar Marathon
  6. 12/11/10 – Kiawah, SC: Kiawah Island Golf Resort Marathon

I’m always game to have friends tag along and run with me so feel free to reach out if you are so inclined.  And – I’m trying to figure out what kind of new special 2010 charity thing to add on to my existing sponsors Return Path and Pixie Mate so I’m open to suggestions.  And – as always – a super huge thanks to my amazing coach Gary Ditsch at Endurance Base Camp for putting up with me.

See you in a few weeks New Orleans!
