The Nike Women's Marathon is now officially on the books. It's going to happen on Sunday, October 22, 2006. In case any of you are interested in doing a marathon (half or full), this is one I HIGHLY recommend. It's well-organized, you can't beat San Francisco, and the company is great. Also, the goodies are nice (at the finish you get unlimited Luna Bars, bananas, Jamba Juice Stuff, etc.) Although the course is a bit hilly, it also has an awesome oxygen bar, banana stop, foot care stop, and my favorite - the chocolate mile. There are also DJ stops to help motivate the runners. Yes, men can do it, but I think there are a few rules they need to follow. Check out www.NikeMarathon.com for more details.
If this does not conflict with this year's Ford Fellows conference, I will definitely be there.
Hope to see you there too!
