Calico 1/2 Slam

So I'm thinking of going for the Calico Racing 1/2 Slam award. I would have to run 4 1/2 marathon distances in 12 consecutive months.

I was going to have the Red Rock Canyon 1/2 marathon be my first. However, if I bump that first one up to the Running From an Angel 1/2, then I can do ed Rock as my second 1/2 and they both will be during the colder months.

I'd then skip Lovell Canyon, as I've heard that hill is brutal. And I'd also skip the Running With the Devil 1/2. That's way too hot to do that distance my first 1/2 marathon season.

So I'd then do the ET 1/2, which is done in such beautiful weather in August out in Rachel, NV. And then end it all with the one it all started with - the Running From an Angel.

It's all just thoughts.... possibilities. I'll ponder on it for a little while.

I say go for it. I love how we get sucked into these things. I was orgianlly just going to run the santa barbara marathon in december but now am considering adding the surf city marathon in february and then the san francisco half in july so I can get a big ol california medal and jacket. The things that lure us in. LOL. we were orgainlly going to ttc after santa barbara but maybe we'll hold off until after feb. I have no problems running a half while pregnant (san fran) but wouldn't do a full.

Funny thing is that I was looking at that run from an angel race and thinking it sounded like a beautiful area.

It really does suck us in! And I guess if anything's going to, running is a good thing to be sucked in by, right? And I say GO FOR IT to you too!
