Akron has a super cute jacket this year:
I mean really, it has much more awesomeness to it than the solid red one last year.
I sort of convinced Audrey to run Akron this year since she is from Ohio. I'd love to get that jacket and go back to my favorite marathon of 2010. I wouldn't choose Akron as an A-race since the course is a tad more challenging than I'd like for that sort of a thing. I'd like a little redemption for my 4:45 finish last year, though.
The bad news: Akron and Air Force are one week apart. And they are both in Ohio (I say this as a negative thing because who wants to travel back to the same state twice in two weeks -- nothing against Ohio in particular).
Air Force is first so I could A-race it and run Akron a week later (whether or not I'd be in any shape to beat 4:45 remains murky).
Thoughts? I could just run Air Force next year, but I've sort of got my heart set on doing it this year. Not sure why. Besides soliciting input for this decision, I'm writing about this for a different reason.
Boyfriend and I had "Seinfeld" on in the background tonight. I was telling Boyfriend how I could possibly fly out to Ohio one weekend, come back to California, then fly back to Akron the next weekend. As soon as I said this, Elaine on the tv said: "Ohio?!" Boyfriend and I looked at each other. Then Jerry said, "You're flying out to Akron just to zing somebody?" I haven't decided if this means I should go for both of them, or just one of them (and in that case which one?!).
