I'm glad to meet someone on here from the Northern Michigan area. I have only traveled through Cadillac to get down to Grand Rapids and K-Zoo, but I have heard nice things.
Anyway, I'm a little nervous about running a marathon since the longest I have ever run is 7 miles straight, but I'm looking forward to it. I heard it's a really pleasant course, especially since it's out on the Old Mission Peninsula.
I have chit-chatted with both Jeff and Daniel at Running Fit across the road from the Grand Traverse Mall. I just did their Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Trot(big whopping 5K!). They have passed along the Marathon 101 book that they supply with their marathon training course, but it looks as if they are going to be holding a "Preparing for a 10K" class instead of Marathon 101, which I'm pretty bummed about! I guess they weren't getting enough marathoners...oh well!
I would love to hear about your experiences with the Bayshore, and to get any advice you may have regarding running "LONG" distances in Northern Michigan especially since Old Man Winter is starting to make his first appearances up here.
Take care & I hope to hear from you soon, Colleen (Traverse City)
