I don't particularly want to do the Wine and Dine again, but the timing just alines perfectly. If I give myself too much time to train, it becomes much easier to slack off. Committing to a fall 1/2 means I have time to spread out the miles and keep strength training. If I wait a little longer, I can confirm if they are doing the Princess 1/2, which is the one I reallllly want to run. It seems to happen on wedding anniversary weekend, which I think would make it all the more fun! Since it happens in February, the 2013 information isn't being mentioned yet.
I'm heading for the drawing board to see how I could break out my miles for a race that wouldn't be for another 9 months or 11 months.
