After reading Cory's post, becuase I had been planning the same thing (except the whole running in Italy part)I looked at the FAQ's for the PWWHM. And I realized that if I am going to make this work with my marathon taper, I will need to run a sanctioned race on October 6th when I have a 13 mile run scheduled. The next week, the offical week of the PWWHM, my schedule calls for nine miles.
So do I just run 13 miles eight days before my marathon? Or do I go to Jacksonville to run the Marine Corps Half Marathon On October 6th? It's about a two or two-and-a-half drive from here.
On the off chance that one of you are thinking about it - Is anyone planning on running the half in Jacksonville? Marathon Chris? I don't know what your training schedule calls for that weekend, but you could make October a Marines month...
