Niagara Falls… slowly, I run. Step by step…

I was hoping to be able to run a fall race while we got a short break from our ship this fall, and this weekend I finalized the details.

It’s happening. I am running in the Niagara Falls International Marathon Weekend’s Half Marathon!

This looks like a great race. Fast, flat course with the last 2 miles going downhill. Not to put too fine a point on it, but:


The heat in Chicago may have kept the elusive 2:45 from me, but Niagara will be more generous, I’m sure.

It's not even an out-and-back! Beauty!

Besides, how could I resist another race which would have me running alongside water? And just picture the fall colors!

This mini-break from work just keeps getting better and better!

I’ve set up an event on my facebook page if you’re running then sign in for roll call! I’ll have some Sweat Pink shoelaces on hand for readers!
