16504... That is my BIB number for ING Miami Marathon. It is a bit weird, I usually look forward to a race, but this one I am not really feeling yet. I haven't run in over a month now, afraid that if I start running too soon I will allow the bronchitis to come back. I still have a bit of a cough but maybe the laziness has taken root after a month of not running. Chilly temperatures are not helping either... I will have to get off my butt soon if I want to stand a chance out there in Miami. I did get confirmation that my entry was bumped down to a half, but despite what a lot of people say, a half is not ONLY a half, it's still a respectable distance. I may decide at the last minute to cheer on the racers and forego the medal, who knows.
For all of those interested, Ray the DC Rainmaker is hosting another giveaway. This one is really worthwhile: a 310XT Garmin ForeRunner! So head on over to Ray's giveaway post and comment, blog, tweet and facebook all about it to get more chances!
