To run (far) or not to run (far)

My brother is semi-committed to doing the inaugural Illinois marathon. And has *subtly* hinted that I might want to do it too. However, I swore that I would *never* do another full marathon. I know, I know, I also said that after my first one and still did another one. But a THIRD?!!?! How glutton for punishment am I?

On the other hand, I don't feel that I realized my potential in either of my first two marathons. So I am contemplating a redemption run.

Another plus is that I had so much fun running the Flying Pig half. Another negative is that a marathon is twice as far. That's right folks, a FULL marathon is TWICE as far as a half. And damn, that's FAR.

Obviously further contemplation is required. Luckily there's plenty of time.

I hear ya. I don't think i've reached my potential going 26.2, which is why i'm shooting for marathon #4. God I hope I hit my potential soon.
