It's touted as "quite possibly the flattest course in the country." The country being USA, not Canada. It's probably the least expensive marathon I've ever registered for at a whopping $50 and it's only a three-hour drive from home. So at the very least it's another fun road trip with my best running buddies and shopping in Grove City.
To be completely honest, I'm not quite ready to be mentally in the game for this training. I feel physically and emotionally spent from this past winter/spring training. As much as I enjoyed it, it was tough.
I'm hoping that this running funk is just a temporary one. I shouldn't say it's a running funk. It's a training funk. And more of a training "alone" funk. Most of my runs had been solo through the winter, but I'm going to have a couple of training partners this time around and someone (maybe two people) to pace me at the marathon.

So, here's to getting my groove back -- hopefully sooner rather than later.
