Right now I’m feeling like my eyes are bigger than my stomach.
I’m about thirty miles behind where I should be. It makes me nervous. I like to be ahead of the game. I’m updating my mileage on the right side of this page. As I get closer to the 25k in May and when I start marathon training for the fall, my mileage will ramp up and I won’t be as worried about it.
This year, I’ve chosen to run the Fifth Third River Bank run to raise money for a local charity, True North Community Services. They do so much for West Michigan: from helping people purchase and maintain their homes to supporting at-risk child to providing food and necessities to those in need.

My other running dilemma is choosing a fall marathon. The options are the Oktoberfest marathon (close to home, fun course), Sleeping Bear Marathon (defending my title, free), or something completely new. There is also a race that is flat and fast to help qualify for Boston. I have a Boston qualifying time, but haven’t decided whether to run there next year. Any Midwest marathon suggestions I should check out?
