Also, with so many great things happening in the marathon these past couple of weeks I "consulted" with my roommate (Allen Wagner) about doing a marathon this spring. After Twin Cities I was eager to run another marathon. The only thing holding me back in my mind was the idea of developing and working on my speed over the spring. And when "working" on speed, it meant racing shorter distances on and off the track. But, the more I think about it, I can always work on speed during marathon training. The only thing that I can't attain from working on speed, is actually going to a bunch of track races and racing a PB. But, at this point its out weighed by the fact that I haven't qualified for the US Olympic Trials and want to! So, that's why I will be racing one this April. I know its going to go well!
