Well, frankly, I'm kind of surprised myself that this is here. I sort of signed up for the Bayshore Marathon on a whim. I actually got on to sign up for the half marathon when registration for that opened but I decided against it due to the cost. The half is pretty pricey at $85 and it sells out in hours so I guess they can charge those prices. It is a great course. Then the marathon registration came up and I decided to just go for fun. Last year when I went to see my running buddy Kevin run his first marathon, I had wished I was running that day. It was an absolutely perfect day for a marathon and I can only hope to have that good of weather this year.

For those of you not from Michigan, Bayshore Marathon is located in the resort town of Traverse City. Fortunately for me, it's an hour from our cottage so I get to enjoy a good nights sleep in my own bed. It also helps that I know what to expect since this was my first marathon back in 2011. I certainly won't be as nervous as when I was here for my first marathon.

Marathon #6, here I come. 18 weeks and the countdown begins.
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
