Last night I pulled the trigger on registering for the next long race I plan to run – the Fargo Marathon, which will be held on Saturday, May 19 at 8:15AM. The fast, flat course starts and ends at the Fargodome and has received good reviews on MarathonGuide.com.
The 2012 edition will be the eighth running and it sounds like the marathon field is much smaller than half, which should be interesting. Still need to book a hotel room for Friday – the whole family will come with and we’ll probably leave right after school.
So I’m now officially back in training mode. I plan to up my minimum treadmill runs during the week from 5K to 8K (or 10K if I can stand it) and will start regular weekend long runs in Minneapolis again. If the weather continues to cooperate, I may try to do more outdoor running in the Northland too.
This week is also tech training week, as we have three days of kiosk training scheduled Tuesday-Thursday with a vendor from Las Vegas (the “kiosk whisperer”). Our formal meeting rooms were all booked, so we actually have some tables set up in a back storage area. Classy, no?
