  1. Great plans. I achieved my current PR in the half marathon at Surf City. If you have not done that one, you will enjoy it. Glad to see you coming back to Colorado for another try at the Golden Leaf. Are you automatically in Chicago next year without having to go the lotto route?

    I am trying to create my 2017 race calendar but the outcome depends on whether I get into London, Berlin, Chicago and New York marathons. I have actually created a flowchart of my race plans depending on if I get in or do not get into those 4 events. I am not in London so I registered for Vienna on the same date. Now I wait to see if I get into Berlin to determine which way the arrow on the flow chart goes.

    • You’ve got some big races!! I’m not in Chicago yet. Trying my luck in the lottery but it’s much earlier this year and we know in December so we can plan accordingly. I’m definitely excited to do Golden Leaf this time!! (Weather permitting! Lol)
