I don't know, my theory is it's not just the running but the rapid weight loss. I haven't lost *that* much weight, but for me it came off quickly so I guess it's a big change for my body! My dad also suggested it could be skin damage from too much sun exposure, so that could be part of it, too. I've been using sunblock now whenever I lay out and go running, which I never did before b/c I'm pale and don't tan too easily. So I hope that will help too!
About the Duke City -- I think my sister and Dad and I are going to run the Atlantic City Marathon on October 15, so if so, then no, I'm not going to run in ABQ. :( But if I can convince them to come here instead (they live in Pennslyvania), then I will.
I'm glad to hear someone say they like it! A lot of people told me it was boring and not to run it as my first marathon or I would be discouraged, so I ran the San Diego Rock 'n' Roll instead. But I do want to run the Duke City since I live right here! What time do you run it in? ~Anita.
