Jingle Bell Jog 8k and Spring Marathon Choice

Yesterday I participated in a small local low key "getting ready for the holidays" road race... Montgomery County Road Runners Jingle Bell Jog 8k in Rockville. I got into the spirit of the holidays and tied little jingle bells to my race belt... I definitely jingled the whole way. To be honest race conditions were terrible. When you combine pouring rain, narrow paths, and sidewalks... you are asking for a bad race. All in all I didn't do that terribly bad... but a 41:09 was slower than I anticipated. I guess my body is still recovering from Philly.

Spring Marathons choices have changed. Orginally I was going to run The National Marathon in Washington DC... but it's now only like 12ish weeks away and I'm no where near ready. So I have chosen to run the Athens (Ohio) Marathon April 11 in beautiful Athens Ohio. It's a real small race... but it will be fun going back to that small little town that i'm love with.

More to come...

Sounds like a great run and a perfect plan! Did you piss off anyone with your bells?
My first half-marathon ever was the Athens Ohio half-marathon, and it was probably one of my favorites!

Very nice on all fronts. An achievable goal out there in the future to keep things cooking.
