Milwaukee will be a cool event, anyhow...the course is almost slightly downhill the entire way, it's in my home state, and my folks, siblings, nephews and other extended family should be able to attend, which will be a real treat. My best friend is planning to make the road-trip to WI, too, so I will still have her there with me. I hope we are both able to stick together for this race and both arrive at the starting line in good shape. I will still plan to go to Grand Rapids on the day of their marathon, but as a spectator/cheerleader for other friends who are planning to enter that race. I had considered doing the half-marathon, but it's only 2 weeks after Milwaukee, so I have no idea if I will be up to it...plus it is MORE expensive than the MLM, so that starts to get expensive, especially considering the weekend in Milwaukee is not likely to be cheap.
Today is Derek's birthday. He is 36. Ha, he is once again older than I...for the last 10 days we were the same age.
